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

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?!

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

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
