Too big

Ooh what a week~too little sleep, too much of the menopause and far too much fathers day advertising for my liking.


I’ve literally jumped in the car and come to my favourite spot. The washing and housework can wait as can the disposal of the far too big packaging my far too big tv came in yesterday~that’s a story for another day!


So here I am with my coffee (well coffee’s) listening to the waves crash and enjoying the peace and quiet.
Ever thankful that Dad left us such a beautiful spot to visit and come to when ever we need to after all a girl is never too old to need her Dad.❤x

Pause for a moment.

When the kids were small,the days at the park, the beach or the farm, etc seemed endless but I loved every minute of it.
The early mornings seemed a bit torturous at the time but looking back we had the best times and have made some wonderful memories.


Breakfast at the park, cooking dinner at the beach, crabbing with friends~you name it we did it.
Somehow those days have disappeared so fast and now they are teenagers, things have naturally changed.


Todays venture was a walk along the seafront and a coffee with my boy which was just as lovely.
If I could change anything, I would love for time to slow down a little, to just pause and really appreciate the little things well everything in fact.
Happy Sunday.❤x

One step at a time.

Imagine the scene,you’ve decided to get out of your comfort zone and embark on a new fitness regime at the gym.

You are really getting into it when your ear bud falls out of your ear and bounces off of the treadmill whilst you simultaneously try and stop said machine and attempt to locate the escaped ear bud.

Fortunately a voice behind you says ‘don’t worry it’s fine,here you are,handing me my ear bud before saying that was close it nearly went up the hoover!’

Its times like these when I wonder is it just me or do these things happen to anyone else?!

Single life.

Online dating~2 words that I get fed up of hearing and saying on a regular basis.

At times it feels like a necessary evil in this modern world of dating but to say its a minefield would be putting it mildly.

Still at the grand age of 44yrs I find myself helplessly attempting to navigate my way through it.

It’s not something I ever envisaged for myself but hey ho sometimes life has different ideas for us and sadly it seems that my happily ever after isn’t going to come and knock down my door and get me so you know onwards and upwards we go or to be more precise ‘online’ I go!

Anyhow like most things every now and then there are funny moments, we are all human and I’m guessing looking for things in our own ways.

One of today’s messages made me chuckle and I haven’t shared any funny ones for a while so I thought why not.

Happy Sunday everyone. ❤ x

All you need is…

I didn’t need to set an alarm for this morning but typically I was awake stupidly early after a particularly rubbish night.
One of those nights where the dreams are vivid and random and make absolutely no sense at all.
My cup says ‘all you need is love’ it should also say and plenty of coffee!
Happy #humpday.❤x

Every day is a school day.

As the saying goes ‘every day is a school day’.

Life is full of learning but unlike school there is no timetable, no planned lessons for daily tasks, love, life, emotions,parenting etc.

Every day can feel the same,it has 24hrs in it, every week has 7 days but you can never be sure from one day to the next what you’ll be learning today,tomorrow or next week.

You don’t get days off, no summer holidays anymore.

You just go with the flow, riding the rollercoaster of life with its ups and downs,twists and turns.

Life is a learning process and you are never too old to learn.❤ x

Live in the moment

Tonight I cried, I wanted a bunch of sunflowers but the shop had sold out of them.


I saw them yesterday and assumed I would have time to get some today.


The tears weren’t just because of sunflowers~they were because of lots of things but the fact remains that we always think we have tomorrow, there’s always another day,we put off doing and saying things that matter.


Don’t take time for granted, live for the moment.❤x

No regrets?

I feel like every time I start to write something, everything has a common theme to it, I feel I’m having lots of ‘I wasn’t going to do that but I’m glad I’m did moments’.

This evening for example I wasn’t going to go out to the beach even though I knew it would be good to clear my head.

So I found myself having a last minute dash to get to the seafront before the sun set and I am honestly so glad that I did. The sky was amazing, the colours were beautiful, it was as peaceful and calm as ever.

When I looked back through my photographs, I noticed that the clouds look like love hearts in the sky, which I like to think is a gentle reminder that our loved ones are never far away.

Coming back to those moments of being glad I did thing’s, just really powers home the saying of ‘in life we only regret the chances we didn’t take’.

Grab life with both hands we only get one shot at it.❤x
