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

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

I can.

I needed that more than I realised.
It was hard to get going this morning and I was slow and grumpy with myself, it didn’t help that I forgot my ear buds and had the wrong underwear on(if you know you know!).


Anyhow I then reasoned with myself that 30 mins of exercise was 30 mins better than staying at home doing nothing.
Its helped clear my head and get me motivated, very much needed on both counts.
Happy #humpday everyone.❤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

Strut your stuff

After an accidental afternoon nap on the sofa, I dragged myself to the gym,managed to be late arriving but had a quick workout nonetheless, followed by aqua aerobics.


I absolutely love being in the water and it was definitely good fun.


The one thing I had forgotten about was how much I hate having to strut around essentially half naked to get to and from the pool, especially with the one way system which means you have to walk an extra lap of the whole pool side to get out,nothing like being out of your comfort zone!


Still I’m feeling happy with myself and definitely ready for bed.
Happy #humpday.❤x
