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?!

All you need is…

I didn’t need to set an alarm for this morning but typically I was awake stupidly early after a particularly rubbish night.
One of those nights where the dreams are vivid and random and make absolutely no sense at all.
My cup says ‘all you need is love’ it should also say and plenty of coffee!
Happy #humpday.❤x

This morning.

So this morning went something like this…

When you buy a bottle of wine at 8am (which is for tonight’s consumption!)and it rolls off of your back seat under the passenger seat, so you have to crawl across the seats (with your backside undoubtedly hanging out).


You turn around with said wine bottle in your hand and your next door neighbour is standing there,felt like I should explain myself but didn’t have time so just called out morning and dashed indoors!
Happy Friday everyone.❤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

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

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
