When you buy a bottle of wine at 8am (which is for tonight’s consumption!)and it rolls off of your back seat under the passenger seat, so you have to crawl across the seats (with your backside undoubtedly hanging out).
You turn around with said wine bottle in your hand and your next door neighbour is standing there,felt like I should explain myself but didn’t have time so just called out morning and dashed indoors! Happy Friday everyone.❤x
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
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 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
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
Whilst standing in the kitchen,dealing with the seamingly neverending washing up,I looked out of the window into the garden. Nothing unusual about that, I do that several times a day but today there is a space, a big space infact because the trampoline has gone.
I’ve been looking forward to it going as nobody uses it anymore.
But seeing the space now reminded me of a conversation I had with my Dad, several years ago. We were discussing getting a bigger trampoline for the kids and he said ‘you’ll never have any garden for yourself at this rate with all of their stuff out here’, I laughed and said ‘ that’s fine,as long as I have the patio to sit on they can fill the rest, when they’re older I’ll have the space back’.
Fast forward and that day has arrived now I have my space back, how quick did that day come around and what I wouldn’t give just to go back and savour those times again.
Life feels like it’s simply flying by.
Another little nudge, another friendly reminder that time waits for no one and nothing lasts forever.
Its turning out to be one of those days,first of all I lost my watch,then my car and the way things are going,I think my sanity may well be next on the list! At least my nails are looking fabulous though thank you to my lovely children for the lovely birthday present.
