Mothers Day 2022

Good Morning, happy mother’s day from me,my fab pink shoes and the random paint splat which I genuinely thought was part of my jeans!


We are off to visit my Mama aka the brown sugar/cous cous queen, if you know you know!


Sending love and gentle hugs to those who need it.❤️x

The best is yet to come?

I feel like I should have lots to say but despite all the words floating around in my head I can’t quite get them out.

I always find this time of year is definitely a time for reflection.

There are lots of things I want to leave in the past exactly where they should be.

I’ll be moving forward into 2022 with an open heart and an extra feeling of ‘going for it’ making the changes I want and need to make.

After all we only get one shot at this crazy life but if you stand still,the world will keep turning and the sun will keep shining but your feet won’t move by themselves.

May you dream big, love well, be kind and brave enough to follow your heart and see where it takes you, after all maybe the best really is yet to come.

Happy New year Everyone.

Much love.❤x

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

Happy Birthday to you xx

I wish I was writing you a card instead of writing this post.

I wish you could be with us when we raise a toast.

But they don’t have mail where you are, we can’t reach you by plane or car.

We look up at the stars above and watch the waves come crashing in, as the boats go sailing by we will remember your smile always as wide as a mile.

Although you are so far away, we are thinking of you every day.

So cheers to you and may I say Dad we wish you a very happy heavenly birthday.❤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
