Make mine a double

Never has double sausage been more needed than now.

Safe to say that passion fruit vodka and I are no longer on speaking terms and that’s not just because the bottle is empty!

Still it was a great night and we have the videos and voice notes to prove it! ❤x

Its the little things

Its friday, I’m tired sleep has abandoned me this week.
I was a bit grumpy at the gym because my sock wasn’t comfortable~believe it or not I am 44 and not 4 and the only oomph I found was when I was leaving the gym and practically jogged out because I wanted to get to costa before work!


In other news my daughter made me cry last night~I came home and she had cut the grass and made dinner when I thanked her for doing so she said ‘Its ok I like to do things to help you’.
I hope she knows how much those things mean to me, a truly thoughtful girl.❤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

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

Is it only Monday?!

Somehow despite growing up in this somewhat crazy and usually unorganised house we call home~I have managed to raise children who hate being late, that’s all good obviously but I had to laugh at this conversation this morning.

Me~We will leave at 8.20am this morn

Ads~why we usually leave at 8.25 am

Me~oh ok 8.25am it is then.

Ads~I mean we could leave a bit later if you like?

Me~whats the latest do you think?

Ads~(deadly serious) 8.28am!

Happy Monday. ❤ x
