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

Make mine a double

Never has double sausage been more needed than now.

Safe to say that passion fruit vodka and I are no longer on speaking terms and that’s not just because the bottle is empty!

Still it was a great night and we have the videos and voice notes to prove it! ❤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

Its the little things

Its friday, I’m tired sleep has abandoned me this week.
I was a bit grumpy at the gym because my sock wasn’t comfortable~believe it or not I am 44 and not 4 and the only oomph I found was when I was leaving the gym and practically jogged out because I wanted to get to costa before work!


In other news my daughter made me cry last night~I came home and she had cut the grass and made dinner when I thanked her for doing so she said ‘Its ok I like to do things to help you’.
I hope she knows how much those things mean to me, a truly thoughtful girl.❤x

Wake up

I can’t pretend that I’m a morning person by any stretch of the imagination.
For me to get moving the day has to start with at least 4 alarms and an annoying amount of hitting the snooze button too, not forgetting the promise of unlimited coffee!
Anyhow I’m glad I did this morning because I got to see this beautiful view on my way to the gym.
A timely reminder that life is beautiful.❤x

My team

The summer holidays have gone far too quick for my liking but they’ve been fun.
Even though I’ve spent this evening (and many more before) annoying them by singing ‘I’m bored in the house’ on repeat, they love it really I’m sure!
There’s never a dull moment in this crazy house but I wouldn’t change it for the world.❤x

Last night I cooked food,chucked it and the kids in the car and headed to Bournemouth for fireworks on the beach.


The traffic was horrendous but the laughs were loud and the journey there was almost as fun as the evening itself.


The fireworks were amazing and the kids were great company~a lovely eve with my 2 favourite people who are growing up far too quickly.❤x
