Just another manic day

This was yesterday but typically I forgot to post it! So here we have another day of madness from your’s truly~enjoy!

Tonight is ending in a similar way to which the day started, minus the part where I spent 20mins trotting around worthing trying to locate a fully functioning parking machine with a complete stranger only to then bump into him shortly afterwards in Greggs with me wishing that despite having 3 hours sleep last night I had made even a bit of effort rather than sporting the ‘I’ve literally rolled out of bed 10 mins ago ‘ look.

This afternoon was fairly drama free, sorting some bits out at home whilst trying to prise my eyes open without propping them up with matchsticks.

I went off to vote, came home and upon realising that being the responsible adult that I am it falls on  me to feed the kids, this should come as no surprise as naturally it is a daily occurrence but still!

So off I went and after opening the fridge  and basically throwing anything edible into the oven I set a timer  on Alexa.
When said timer went off, I told it to be quiet and although in my head had asked for it to be snoozed,quite clearly the words never left my mouth and as  I sat pondering my life, it suddenly occured to me that the chips where taking an awfully long time in the oven. Alexa then very kindly informed me that there was no further timer set just as I opened the oven door in the nick of time before cremating tonight’s dinner.

Cue more shouting at poor old Alexa!

After washing up and waiting what felt like an enternity for the bath to run, I have fallen into bed, although feeling some what accomplished with my to-do list fully ticked off, still pretty frazzled and hopeful that my brain gets the memo tonight sleep is most definitely required.
Happy Thursday.❤x

Say what?!

It’s a new year, a new start, and quite clearly a whole new take on chat up lines, if that’s what you call this?!
Online dating is definitely not for the faint hearted~I can’t lie I’m kind of hoping ‘2022’ has got something a little better up its sleeve in the dating department~watch this space.❤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

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

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

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
