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

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

Flustered relationship goals!

I just don’t know when or if I’m ever going to get my shit together.

Why? Whats happened?
Yesterday you were full of the joys and going to make a real effort and up your dating game…

Did I actually say that? Or was that the wine talking?

Hmm good point but lets be honest it is quite hard to differentiate between the 2 a lot of the time!

Damn cheek not that you’re wrong on this occasion but…

So then what happened?
I thought you were meeting the man of your dreams aka him with the nice arms at 7pm and its now 7.30pm, don’t tell me you’re running late again?!

Nope~I left the house on time,well early actually so I could get some fuel on the way, got in the car and realised I’d forgotten my purse.  Went back indoors came out and tripped over the dodgy paving slab outside the house ffs.

Yes the one that’s been in the same place for the last year’s ~you can stop laughing.

Apart from feeling utterly stupid, I’m fine (thanks for asking not!).

So I went to the garage and got totally flustered, couldn’t park the right way for my petrol cap and just couldn’t deal with trying to hoist the pump up and over the car in this heat, therefore ended up driving around looking bloody hopeless,
managed to spill petrol on my new shoes and decided that was enough for one day.

I am now home putting serious effort into having a relationship with as much chocolate as I can manage without making myself sick!

Even flustered girls need a break…

Letting out a huge sigh, Sandra turned and patted the small head staring intently up at her ‘I don’t know Pam’ she said to her wagging tailed companion
‘I just don’t know’.

Opening her phone and reading through the text conversation once again, Sandra managed to avoid the temptation of opening google to assess her eligibility of indeed becoming a nun and plonked her mobile down on the table,slightly firmer than she had anticipated~bugger!



‘Right’  she said, once again as if half expecting a reply from someone.

‘I’m off to make use of the gym’s shower and coffee facilities and who knows maybe even their exercise equipment!’.

Time,precious time

This popped up this morning on my timeline and I just cannot believe this was our very last Father’s Day with our Dad. Nobody knew of course that would be the case.

I feel its another timely reminder to be the best version of yourself,make every day count and try to keep your head held high.
Go and make those memories, live your life and love well.
Time is so very,very precious.❤x
