Online dating~2 words that I get fed up of hearing and saying on a regular basis.
At times it feels like a necessary evil in this modern world of dating but to say its a minefield would be putting it mildly.
Still at the grand age of 44yrs I find myself helplessly attempting to navigate my way through it.
It’s not something I ever envisaged for myself but hey ho sometimes life has different ideas for us and sadly it seems that my happily ever after isn’t going to come and knock down my door and get me so you know onwards and upwards we go or to be more precise ‘online’ I go!
Anyhow like most things every now and then there are funny moments, we are all human and I’m guessing looking for things in our own ways.
One of today’s messages made me chuckle and I haven’t shared any funny ones for a while so I thought why not.
Just found this on my camera roll (having taken a screenshot of it last weeek). It put a much needed smile on my face this evening. 7 years on and my boy is now totally aware that the only running Mummy ever does is of the late variety! Happy #humpday.❤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
This is #humpday. I’m more hormonal than well I don’t actually know what,nothing is going how I want it to and this monstrosity was supposed to be poached eggs wtaf?! Menopause can you just go away now!! ❤x
When I say there is nothing like being organised,in this house I mean that literally,having ordered the shopping for click and collect, I arrived without bags(again)thank goodness I remembered the car!! 🤦♀️ ❤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
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.
