    Hello all,

    To most of you this will seem really silly, but I am so so pleased with myself, I just did an on-line order for a couple of new things for my new home when I get it, nothing really interesting but I did it all by myself, was never allowed to, but I did it, and it should arrive tomorrow. deep joy, that a new kettle can make my day. Xx

    Not silly and well done you 💪 so much of our independence is taken in so many ways but it’s empowering to do things for ourselves especially if we have Been forbidden to or told we are unable. Onwards and upwards 💕

    Thank you for your kind words, you never know what I will do next, this ordering things may be just the start, I hope so.
    It is strange having so much taken away, but baby steps and time I’ll get there.
    Take care all Xx

    Oh no, not silly at all! I remember that feeling so well. The first thing I ordered was a small item for dressing up for book week for my child. Would never have been allowed when with him. Wonderful feeling. Enjoy!

    Oh yes the simplest things and freedom! Keep hold of this for the difficult times – you are on a journey. It’s the simplest things that make me smile getting into my own bed safe. We are stepping into our futures 😊

    Thats wonderful, well done. When you’ve been really difficult times you learn to appreciate the small things.
    All the best xx
