Online dating~2 words that I get fed up of hearing and saying on a regular basis.
At times it feels like a necessary evil in this modern world of dating but to say its a minefield would be putting it mildly.
Still at the grand age of 44yrs I find myself helplessly attempting to navigate my way through it.
It’s not something I ever envisaged for myself but hey ho sometimes life has different ideas for us and sadly it seems that my happily ever after isn’t going to come and knock down my door and get me so you know onwards and upwards we go or to be more precise ‘online’ I go!
Anyhow like most things every now and then there are funny moments, we are all human and I’m guessing looking for things in our own ways.
One of today’s messages made me chuckle and I haven’t shared any funny ones for a while so I thought why not.
Just found this on my camera roll (having taken a screenshot of it last weeek). It put a much needed smile on my face this evening. 7 years on and my boy is now totally aware that the only running Mummy ever does is of the late variety! Happy #humpday.❤x
When I say there is nothing like being organised,in this house I mean that literally,having ordered the shopping for click and collect, I arrived without bags(again)thank goodness I remembered the car!! 🤦♀️ ❤x
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
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.
Its turning out to be one of those days,first of all I lost my watch,then my car and the way things are going,I think my sanity may well be next on the list! At least my nails are looking fabulous though thank you to my lovely children for the lovely birthday present.
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?
