Blogmas Day 24 – Christmas Wishes

Today is the last day of Blogmas 2018! If you’ve managed to stick with me for all 24 of these posts, thank you so much! I’m so grateful to all of you who join me over here at alloutaspoons, and appreciate the retweets, shares, likes and twitter replies I get from every one of you. As it’s now Christmas Eve, I figured now was a great time to share with you my 5 wishes for 2019, and I’d really love to hear some of yours too.

  1. My first wish is that my doctors find a way to balance out my health even more. Throughout 2018 they’ve discovered new symptoms and diagnoses that had been troubling me for a while, and were able to make good progress in treating those successfully. It can only get better now, right?
  2. Secondly, ¬†I wish that all of my family have a very healthy and less stressful year. As I’ve not been the only sick one from September 2017 and through most of 2018, I’d love for everyone else to be better and fully recovered before this time next year. It may not be possible for me to be better, but at least everyone else could be by Christmas 2019!
  3. As our family is going to grow in January, I wish for us to be a happy family of four, and that our household King, Smokey, and his new baby brother Tango, become best of friends. I know there’ll be wee everywhere and Tango will be chewing on anything he can, I hope that it’ll be a smooth transition and we’ll all be happy and loving each other all throughout next year.
  4. As my fourth wish, I would like to wish for my best friend to have the best wedding and start to marriage possible. She’s stuck with me throughout my entire illness and is always there, even when she’s unwell or stressed herself. 2018 has been a stressful year for her and her partner, and she’s battled a lot of illnesses, so I’d love for them both to have a better 2019 and that they have the beautiful wedding that they deserve.
  5. Finally, my fifth wish would be to be well enough to decide where I want to go in life after graduating this year. I hope that my doctors may get a good picture of what my new baseline is, and from there I’m able to decide upon what I’m physically able to do in my life, and what I would enjoy the most. A wish that could bring me more direction in my life, that often seems to have been taken over by my chronic illnesses.


This will be my last post of 2018, as I now plan to take a break, spend time with my loved ones, and now take some time away from my MacBook. Our newest family member will be arriving on January 10th so once he’s settled in, I’ll be back posting all sorts of new content that I know is worth waiting for! Thank you to all of you for your support over the last year, and I hope that I’m providing you content that keeps you wanting to come back! I’d love to hear if there’s anything at all that you’d like me to cover next year, free from recipes, mobility aids, etc.

So, as I’m now logging off until 2019, I’d like to wish every single one of you a very merry christmas. I hope that you enjoy every second of however you spend your Christmas, and that you remember to take the time out that you need. Merry Christmas readers, I wish the best for all of you in 2019, and I’ll see you next year!
