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
Todays tears (of the happy variety!)are brought to you by these absolutely beautiful sunflowers.
Not enough words to say how touched I am.❤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
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
Its turning out to be one of those days,first of all I lost my watch,then my car and the way things are going,I think my sanity may well be next on the list!
At least my nails are looking fabulous though thank you to my lovely children for the lovely birthday present.
Happy Friday. ❤ x
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
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.
The morning after the night before..
Not that I drank any alcohol but we chatted so much we missed the deadline for ordering cake! Coffee was good as was the company.
So cake for breakfast it is,the question is will there be any left for the kids later?!
I just don’t know when or if I’m ever going to get my shit together.
Why? Whats happened?
Yesterday you were full of the joys and going to make a real effort and up your dating game…
Did I actually say that? Or was that the wine talking?
Hmm good point but lets be honest it is quite hard to differentiate between the 2 a lot of the time!
Damn cheek not that you’re wrong on this occasion but…
So then what happened?
I thought you were meeting the man of your dreams aka him with the nice arms at 7pm and its now 7.30pm, don’t tell me you’re running late again?!
Nope~I left the house on time,well early actually so I could get some fuel on the way, got in the car and realised I’d forgotten my purse. Went back indoors came out and tripped over the dodgy paving slab outside the house ffs.
Yes the one that’s been in the same place for the last year’s ~you can stop laughing.
Apart from feeling utterly stupid, I’m fine (thanks for asking not!).
So I went to the garage and got totally flustered, couldn’t park the right way for my petrol cap and just couldn’t deal with trying to hoist the pump up and over the car in this heat, therefore ended up driving around looking bloody hopeless,
managed to spill petrol on my new shoes and decided that was enough for one day.
I am now home putting serious effort into having a relationship with as much chocolate as I can manage without making myself sick!
