Deep in the meadow - The Hunger Games - Lyrics & Cover

Hey Folks!

So last week i put up a cover of a beautiful song featured in The Hunger Games. Jennifer Lawrence sang it beautifully at the end of "Mockingjay - Part 2" and i couldn't help but doing my own version of it.

Here's the lyrics and my cover:

"Deep in the Meadow"

Deep in the meadow, under the willow,
a bed of grass, a soft green pillow.

Lay down your head and close your eyes,
and when you wake the sun will rise.

Here it's safe, here it's warm,
here the daisies guard you from every harm.
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where i love you.

Hope you enjoyed it, Much Love, Beth xxx

Day in the life of a spoonie...

A spoonie? What now? If you're unsure of what it means to be a spoonie, it basically means you have a chronic condition of some sort that prevents you from doing all you want in life. If you want more info about living with a chronic illness, you can read one of my past blog posts here:

If you're like me you're a visual person and reading long articles ain't the greatest fun! With this in mind i've really been trying to up my game on Youtube and make videos that truly reflect what it's like to live with a chronic illness. One of my most recent videos i filmed on a work day at home.

Granted i'm coping quite well these days. I'm tired beyond words but my morale is high, higher than it's ever been since i've been diagnosed. So the last thing i want you to do is compare yourself to me and feel like you should be doing more. I'm very grateful for my very basic weekly routine and to also have work that is extremely flexible for those frequent days where everything is a challenge.

So i'll link the video, please show your support, and comment! I love reading & replying to your comments.

Treat life better than it has treated you. Breathe. Drink tea.

Love you.
