Small steps…

This time last year, I’d never set foot in the gym and certainly didn’t think it would ever be for me.

I can remember the first time I did, as usual it was a whirlwind spur of the moment decision to join but as I pulled up in the car park, the urge to drive off was suddenly very real.

For a start I felt far too self conscious to stroll in wearing my gym stuff.

To my absolute amazement I really liked it and I can honestly say I have never looked back.

So much so that this morning I was in the gym at 7.30am, did my workout and then went for a seafront walk in my gym outfit, grabbed a coffee and couldn’t careless if my bum looks big in my leggings!

Happy Monday.❤x

Its not me its you!

Haven’t done this in a while,so I thought I’d share another old but funny dating story from way back when…

As dates go this one was pretty short but not particularly sweet.

We met outside the pub we had arranged to meet at, after a quick introduction he looked pretty much ‘ unamused ‘shall we say for want of a better phrase.

We got drinks sat down and he proceeded to tell me all about and I mean ALL about his ex wife and how awful she was etc etc.

After what felt like forever but in reality was probably about an hour, we left the pub.

I said goodbye,thanked him for the drink and was about to leave.
Much to my shock he attempted to kiss me,which I skillfully ducked out of and left.

He text me later that evening, quite a lot later infact and I didn’t see it until the morning, I replied then was quite literally gobsmacked at his next message which went something along these lines…

‘It was nice to meet you last night, I’ll be honest though I don’t think I would be up for meeting again.’

Now obviously that’s fair enough, however he continued by saying ‘ unfortunately you really remind me of my ex wife.’

I couldn’t help myself and responded by saying ‘your ex wife who according to you is a dreadful person?!’

‘Oh no, not in that way,I mean you look a lot like her’ he said.

Ok then! ❤ x

Sunday Lunch

We are very excited that my Mum is coming to see us today for lunch.
It feels like an absolute age since she has been here.

I’ve already text her to see if she has some yorkshire puddings she can bring~you just know she’ll have a stash of homemade ones in the freezer ready for any occasion!

The sun is shining again today,my flowers are blooming and the Gammon that’s cooking smells good.

I hope that we never ever take the small things in life for granted again.❤x
