EEK first ever blog post

Welcome to my first blog post, i guess I should introduce myself.

I’m Lucy. Originally from South Yorkshire but currently living in Northern Ireland.

I lived in Ballymena for 18 years, i now live in a small coastal town called Portstewart and to be fair its so gorgeous.

I have a passion for baking,cooking and anything for the home.

I was born with a medical condition called Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva or FOP for short.  I’ll post a small definition here –  FOP is a disorder in which muscle tissue and connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments are gradually replaced by bone (ossified), forming bone outside the skeleton (extra-skeletal or heterotopic bone) that constrains movement. This process generally becomes noticeable in early childhood, starting with the neck and shoulders and proceeding down the body and into the limbs. As horrible as this sounds i never let it stop  me from doing things i want to do. I just need to be extra careful doing day to day things.

I’m Engaged to Michael due to get married in July 2018. Together we have a ginger tom called Gulliver and we love him even though hes a rascal.. but lets face it who’s pets aren’t. ha ha.
