Life in a Break Down came about when I stopped wanting to blog about the bad sides of my illness and how bad things are in life, because really they aren’t! It might feel like it sometimes, but I’m alive and kicking and from time to time having a great time, so yes if your wondering if it’s a play on words you would be correct.
Life in a Break Down has progressed since it’s early days but in essence it’s still as it was, I’m here a blogging because I want to be, because I love it and because it helps me. Sometimes I of on the odd rants, talk about things I don’t really find ‘great’ but that’s down to the fact sometimes these things just need to be said.
I’ve met some amazing people and got to work with some fantastic brands in the last few years and feel really blessed to be able to call a number of those people friends. I look forward to seeing what each day brings who I meet and what never adventure it might bring to me.
2013 has brought a number of changes already, I took the plunge and moved from my safe home over at blogger to the world of self hosting I also decided to set up a Facebook group for all UK Bloggers, a place for bloggers from all genres to come together share posts, ask for help and generally just have a natter – if you fancy joining us please just click here.
2012 brought the start of my weekly blog hop where bloggers can come together and share their favourite post of the past 7 days called I Love My Post.
I must thank the lovely Bex from Futures for being my partner in crime, for not laughing at me when I come up with these schemes and instead agreeing to help out.
So who’s behind this mayhem I’m sure you are wondering.. well some of you may already know me for those who don’t here I am.
My name is Sarah, I am 27 years old and live in Lichfield, Staffordshire, with my amazing partner Ash and our crazy dog, often seen on my blog Sally, and my two lovely hamsters Artie and Robbie. I suffer from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hyper mobility Syndrome and a number of mental health issues. I have a huge problem with shoes, bags and make up.
There are a few characters who you will find pop up over and over again.
The guy with no real face – Ash, following a rather crazy review on this suit, Morphman came to be, and Ash’s addiction to Morph Suits started, since then he has shown up in different guises to bring that touch of “style” to game.
Artie the Syrian Hamster.
Robber the Roborovski Hamster – RIP 23/04/2013 – Run free of Rainbow Bridge Little One.
Sally the one and only.
As a huge animal lover these little guys appear over and over.
Sally came to me as a rescue dog she was rather thrust upon me and while she loved me from the start I was rather more wary, but she soon won me over and is my doggy soul mate and shadow, she’s seen me through some of the toughest times in my life and has saved my life on multiple occasions.
Artie was the only hamster up in the pet shop one day, the guy came over when he saw me and my Mum looking and talked about how he was a cutie but slightly deformed – from that second I knew he had to be mine – and soon he was, Artie is the interior designer of the flat with Artie mansion often getting a daily make over.
Robbie was in the rescue space at the local Pet at Home for weeks, and we often stood and talked to him while we went to pick up supplies, after we moved Artie into Artie mansion we were left with his original cage looking a little lost and empty and just the right size for a Robo so it was soon disinfected and Robbie came to be with us – he’s the ‘should be on Jackass’ hamster as he often head dives off of his platform or spins off his flying saucer.
My parents also help out with some reviews but it’s rare to grab a photograph of them maybe one day .
