National Epilepsy Week


I have other things to talk about today, and an award to share, but first of all here is something very important.

When I woke up this morning I found an email from Epilepsy Action informing me that today marks the beginning of National Epilepsy Week.

Clicking on the Epilepsy Action logo above will take you to their home page, should you wish to visit and learn more.

I, personally, have chosen to share my achievements with epilepsy here and have included details of my wedding and a link to this blog. I wish I could say that I’ve been able to do more than ask for donations at my wedding and write a blog as a strong advocate for awareness, understanding and education, but I will be getting fitter now that I’m registered for help with the local eating disorders team and my time will come; I wish to do a sponsored walk or a sponsored swim or similar to raise as much money and awareness as possible.

I thought that this may be a point of interest for some of my followers and so decided to mention the event.

In other news I made some onion and rosemary confiturra (pictures to follow) last night and have recieved a lovely award that I need to blog about and pass on to 15 other bloggers. I also need to decide which work in progress I’m going to photograph for Needlework Days, as I’ve been lapsing badly on that one!

Edit: My achievement has been published on this page.

    Great stuff Missus T = )

    • Thank you :)

      It was really important to me to raise money for the charity as it really does help people with epilepsy find each other and bond together so that nobody feels alone. Raising awareness is also really important to me, as I don’t want anybody to ever feel as alone and isolated in their condition as I once did.

  2. Brilliant! A lot of people make their weddings all about them, it’s so beautiful that you used the day to give to a cause that’s important to you. You’re a real inspiration :)

    • Thank you! As I told my Mum, I’m not the only person in the world with epilepsy and it’s had a real impact on my life – and so it was only right that I helped out such a worthy cause :)
