My team

The summer holidays have gone far too quick for my liking but they’ve been fun.
Even though I’ve spent this evening (and many more before) annoying them by singing ‘I’m bored in the house’ on repeat, they love it really I’m sure!
There’s never a dull moment in this crazy house but I wouldn’t change it for the world.❤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

I can.

I needed that more than I realised.
It was hard to get going this morning and I was slow and grumpy with myself, it didn’t help that I forgot my ear buds and had the wrong underwear on(if you know you know!).


Anyhow I then reasoned with myself that 30 mins of exercise was 30 mins better than staying at home doing nothing.
Its helped clear my head and get me motivated, very much needed on both counts.
Happy #humpday everyone.❤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

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.
