Duvet Dwellers Books Name Change and Other News.

For those who have followed this blog for a while you may have noticed a change. With the arrival of Flamingo Paperie cards I have decided to evolve; same blog with the main focus being on my love of books but I will add a smattering of posts about life with dystonia and of course, my love of cards. It is now called From Under the Duvet – Books, Cards and a Wobbly Life. The web address will also change when I figure out how to transfer my domain without spending a fortune and will be fromundertheduvet.co.uk

Dystonia is the main reason I spend more time dwelling under the duvet reading than I should so without it this blog would never have started. Dystonia is a common neurological disorder yet it is hardly spoken about leading to under diagnosis, misdiagnosis and loneliness for those with the condition. Awareness is key to funding support and research so I want to do my bit to help. I was diagnosed with my rare form of dystonia – DRD dopa responsive dystonia – after I stumbled on a blog showing a video of a man with the same symptoms as me. Blogs can make a difference and if this helps one person, I will be happy.

Introducing Flamingos, October Books and Cards

October is here. The evenings are drawing in and the nights are getting cooler which is perfect for snuggling up with a good book and a warm drink. I love this time of the year and I have woken up full of expectation of the things to come – Halloween, Bonfire night and of course, Christmas. With this new season, I am pleased to announce Duvet Dwellers Books have joined Flamingo Paperie to offer quality greeting cards and stationery to spread smiles to those around you.

Why cards from under the duvet?

Being a duvet dweller* and living life from under a duvet you watch the world go by without you and it is easy to feel isolated. We are lucky to live in the age of technology because this allows us to connect with people at the touch of a button but sometimes you need more. For me, there is nothing like the clunk of the letter box and a handwritten card waiting on the doormat. Letters and cards can make the recipient smile and loved more than an electronic ping on your phone. Letters can change someone’s life as shown in a book I love One Million Lovely Letters by Jodi Ann Bickley which I must add a review for.
