The Spoon Theory is a unique way to explain how a chronic illness (be it mental or physical) affects your life, and how general day-to-day living is a huge struggle.
You start the day with 12 spoons, and every activity takes away a certain number of spoons.
I have found this to be a wonderful way to explain to people who have no understanding that invisible illnesses are just as draining as more obvious physical problems. I also use this as a quick add-up to check if I’ve planned too much for myself XD

Also, I finally remembered to take photos of Satsu whilst we were handling him!
As ever, any readers who don’t like snakes, you have been warned!
We absolutely adore this snake.
He is the most chilled out snake we have ever had / handled. He is extremely docile and such a sweet boy, he’s stunning to look at, and he’s been such a reliable feeder so far. He really is the perfect snake.
***end of snake!***
I’ve had a few absence seizures, so I’m going to finish this blog here…
