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

Mother’s day and everyday

In this ever changing world we find ourselves in ~one thing that never changes is the love that holds us all together even during times that we must be apart.


Today and everyday~we celebrate the love, the memories and the wonderful times ahead.
In a year we have said goodbye to our wonderful nan ,we have also welcomed new arrivals and one of my beautiful nieces (I am blessed to have 3) has become a Mummy for the first time too.


I simply cannot wait for us all to be together to hug you all and to meet my new great niece and nephew.

Happy Mothers day everyone.❤ x

Today…

I was standing in the kitchen washing up, thinking about the day ahead, what food we will eat, what to wear etc, wondering if I would wear shorts as its hot but you know I hate my legs~the list could go on.

When perspective slapped me in the face ~hard!

Tomorrow we have to face a huge challenge saying farewell to our super nan~together but apart from eachother.

With that in mind~what does it matter how I look in shorts? What does it matter if I haven’t got it all together today, if the house is a mess or the ironing is piling up?

It doesn’t but those small things play on my mind and I wish they wouldn’t.

I want to see the bigger picture~appreciate the here and now.
Appreciate everyone who is in my life and cherish those who are no longer here but have shaped my life and filled my heart with love and memories that time can never steal.

I have no words to describe how I feel about tomorrow being so close but so far away from my loving family.

One thing is for sure though we will get through this together.

I found myself quoting Dads words to my boy the other day ‘there is nothing that can’t be sorted together’.

So now as I get my 2nd or is it 3rd coffee of the morning~I am planning to make the most of that ‘prospective slap’, get out in the fresh air, have a picnic with my the kids and make more memories. Seize the day and yes wear the damn shorts!!

Lots of love to everyone.❤ x

Goodbye ‘2019’

Goodbye ‘2019’ you’ve left me without the words to express what a year it has been.

Heaven has gained another angel and left a huge void in the hearts of so many.

Tonight as midnight strikes and we welcome in a new year,a new decade and indeed a new chapter, may you cherish those who you hold dear, love a little harder,forgive a little easier and make the most of each and every day.

Make those memories, be present and never take anything from this precious life for granted.

❤x

Remembering

I can’t believe it,it just doesn’t seem true,that a whole year has passed without you.

365 days since I heard your voice, saw you smile and was able to sit and chat with you for a while.

What I wouldn’t give to talk to you, to bend your ear and cry on your shoulder, even though I am another year older.

I miss you more than words can say and think about you with each passing day.

As the days,weeks and months go by,I find myself looking up to the sky, willing you to hear to me cry ‘hey dad, guess what?’ I have things I want to tell you that mean such a lot’.

Memories will never age and love will last forever. Until we meet again,I shall forget you never.

Cheers Dad for being the best.

💔💔💔
