Hot stuff

Its been a funny few weeks, not necessarily in a ha ha funny way either.


I’m blaming my hormones~who knew at the grand age of 43yrs old, I would be struggling to get my menopause medication right at the same time as trying to maintain co-ordination at aqua aerobics hanging on to my hrt patch with one hand and hitching my swim suit up with the other!


Its like the joys just keep on coming!
Anyhow the point of this picture is just to say that having made myself go to the gym this evening then being able to walk out of said gym and having the beach right on my doorstep is something that I hope never to take for granted.


However the hot flushes, sleepless night and mood swings can hurry up and do one anytime they like!

P.s~I realise I’m totally selling myself here #stillsingle haha.

Time,precious time

This popped up this morning on my timeline and I just cannot believe this was our very last Father’s Day with our Dad. Nobody knew of course that would be the case.

I feel its another timely reminder to be the best version of yourself,make every day count and try to keep your head held high.
Go and make those memories, live your life and love well.
Time is so very,very precious.❤x

If you know you know…

Fluster girls take on dinner dates hehe.

Any one else feel the same?

🍽🍽🍽

No,no no and a thousand times no!!

Not on a first date,I just can’t bring myself to even contemplate it.

I mean why would anyone even think about it as an option?

What? Why not its perfectly natural and indeed normal.

You need to pull yourself together woman,
Your a grown up now~well I use that term loosely haha.

Never~I’ve told him no and that’s it, if he thinks I’m odd that’s his problem not mine.

There is nothing you can say that will make me change my mind ~going for dinner on a first date is a ‘no’ from me!

Bird sh**t central

I’ve lived by the sea for a fairly long time now and I love everything about it with the exception of the Seagulls.

Not only do they make a racket at any given time of day they have also decided to target my car with their daily offerings!

I kid you not it’s like bird sh**t central here at the moment, especially after washing the car which I have taken to doing regularly~when I say I , what I actually mean is the car wash cleans it but you get my drift.

Anyhow yesterday morning they had decided that my windscreen looked like a good place for target practise.

Ordinarily this would be easily solved by using the windscreen wipers and screenwash, however not only is my car void of any screenwash, I cannot open the bonnet to put any in!

I would say there are many technical reasons for this but quite frankly I just cannot get the bonnet open and need Ads to do it for me~add into the mix having had my nails done and there was no way that bonnet was going to be opened anytime soon.

So I ran indoors and grabbed a pint glass of water, which I hastily threw over the windscreen, aware that my neighbour was looking at me with a look of amusements on his face whilst clearly thinking wtaf?!

Small steps…

This time last year, I’d never set foot in the gym and certainly didn’t think it would ever be for me.

I can remember the first time I did, as usual it was a whirlwind spur of the moment decision to join but as I pulled up in the car park, the urge to drive off was suddenly very real.

For a start I felt far too self conscious to stroll in wearing my gym stuff.

To my absolute amazement I really liked it and I can honestly say I have never looked back.

So much so that this morning I was in the gym at 7.30am, did my workout and then went for a seafront walk in my gym outfit, grabbed a coffee and couldn’t careless if my bum looks big in my leggings!

Happy Monday.❤x

Its not me its you!

Haven’t done this in a while,so I thought I’d share another old but funny dating story from way back when…

As dates go this one was pretty short but not particularly sweet.

We met outside the pub we had arranged to meet at, after a quick introduction he looked pretty much ‘ unamused ‘shall we say for want of a better phrase.

We got drinks sat down and he proceeded to tell me all about and I mean ALL about his ex wife and how awful she was etc etc.

After what felt like forever but in reality was probably about an hour, we left the pub.

I said goodbye,thanked him for the drink and was about to leave.
Much to my shock he attempted to kiss me,which I skillfully ducked out of and left.

He text me later that evening, quite a lot later infact and I didn’t see it until the morning, I replied then was quite literally gobsmacked at his next message which went something along these lines…

‘It was nice to meet you last night, I’ll be honest though I don’t think I would be up for meeting again.’

Now obviously that’s fair enough, however he continued by saying ‘ unfortunately you really remind me of my ex wife.’

I couldn’t help myself and responded by saying ‘your ex wife who according to you is a dreadful person?!’

‘Oh no, not in that way,I mean you look a lot like her’ he said.

Ok then! ❤ x

I did it

I wanted to do it but when I woke up this morning I didn’t want to do it.
I had plenty of reasons (excuses)for not wanting to including the fact that it was raining/snowing, I felt uncomfortable with myself in my clothes, I was tired the list of excuses could of been endless.

However I did it~I got up and went to the gym. It felt like starting all over again.
I had just got myself into a routine of going and then lockdown 3 took care of that.

I was self concious walking in but once I got started it was fine.

6 miles on the bike later and I left feeling a hundred times better than I did when I woke up this morning.

Small steps for a big gain both mentally and physically.

Happy Monday~now pass me the coffee! ❤x
