Happy December; happy Vlogmas

 This crazy 2020 has set us all in a spin, but unfortunately not on the dance floor. We have missed going out, dancing and getting in the festive spirit this year so I thought I would share previous years vlogs as well as keeping you up to date with how this December in looking in the Usher house.

Back in 2014 I started a science degree in London and most of my Vlogmas time was spent getting on a train. Dad was still with us, as he was in 2015 when I have moved to a closer university. By 2016 he was void from our vlogs which was a great loss at Christmas time, it was definitely one of his favourite times of the year and me and him were always close at Chrisms and new year. I remember how much he appreciated me making soup for a starter, just for him, because everyone else wanted something else. I would warm up the roll in the oven and he commented how 'no-one else' would think of such a thing. 2017 saw my head down and bum up and I didn't vlog that year. We had lost Dad, I had organised the funeral and all that goes with losing someone and taken care of mum after she had a massive heart attack, a year to the day of us losing Dad, while trying to deal with my own health issues and a science degree (as well as single mum and full time work). Mum moved in with us. It was hard. But I missed Vlogmas.

2018 saw a very different story as I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. An autoimmune arthritic condition which can be very life limiting. I thought, 'let's just blinking live my fullest life,' and things got crazy, fun and sometimes a little giggly. That year was full (I mean: FULL) of dancing and parties and loads of those can be seen in this vlogmas throwback, as well as some really cute dresses!

Last year, I lost my gorgeous friend Sharon on the 2nd December but also filled my heart in other ways, unexpectedly. But I gratefully turned 50 on new years eve and remembered that life is a blessing,
and being old enough for grey hairs is something to be thankful for.

Of course, 2020 has been a crazy year but we have created a best selling non fiction book, totally refurbished our house with major building works, learnt to power walk FARRRRR distances, I've made a couple of new, awesome friends and I secured a brand new doctoral research place on a subject very close to my heart. This December, I really feel blessed, despite life challenges and this Christmas I wish the same for you as we head into 2021 together, creating our Lusher Life.
