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

Time,precious time

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.

Time is precious~spend it wisely.❤x

Yesterday,today,tomorrow, everyday….

This memory popped up today and it is as relevant now 5 years on as it was all those years ago.

If my children take on any advice from me, I genuinely hope this is something they remember forever.

Love should be free, willing and unconditional.

I truly believe love is all around in our families, friends and lives, its a magical thing.

Love yourself and never settle for less.❤x

Endless

Tonight after a lovely evening stroll with my boy, I came home uploaded some photographs and posted on my Dads facebook page.

I posted a picture of a boat that I know he would of loved to of seen, a picture that when I took it, for a split second I thought ‘I’ll send it to Dad’ then reality slapped me hard in the face, I can’t send him anything, I can’t call him,text him or hug him.

Being there by the sea makes me feel close to him but sometimes so very far away.

Grief is like an uninvited visitor that never goes away, sometimes it sits quietly in the corner and sometimes it makes its presence felt loudly.

Tonight its a loud presence~one of those days,one of those endless nights.

Is it only Monday?!

Somehow despite growing up in this somewhat crazy and usually unorganised house we call home~I have managed to raise children who hate being late, that’s all good obviously but I had to laugh at this conversation this morning.

Me~We will leave at 8.20am this morn

Ads~why we usually leave at 8.25 am

Me~oh ok 8.25am it is then.

Ads~I mean we could leave a bit later if you like?

Me~whats the latest do you think?

Ads~(deadly serious) 8.28am!

Happy Monday. ❤ x
