One step at a time.

Imagine the scene,you’ve decided to get out of your comfort zone and embark on a new fitness regime at the gym.

You are really getting into it when your ear bud falls out of your ear and bounces off of the treadmill whilst you simultaneously try and stop said machine and attempt to locate the escaped ear bud.

Fortunately a voice behind you says ‘don’t worry it’s fine,here you are,handing me my ear bud before saying that was close it nearly went up the hoover!’

Its times like these when I wonder is it just me or do these things happen to anyone else?!

Single life.

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.

Happy Sunday everyone. ❤ x

Today.

Whatever you do today,tomorrow and every day after that~just make sure you hold your loved ones tight and tell them that you love them.
Don’t leave questions unanswered for another day.
Live for the moment, be open, be honest, don’t wait for tomorrow.❤x

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
