Words that should be spoken

Some days are made for reflection, not the looking in the mirror kind of reflection, the thoughtful kind. Either looking backwards or forwards thinking about where life’s journey is taking you, where you are going and indeed where you have been.

That’s why I love the power of words so much particularly the written word.
Whilst it’s so so true that actions do Indeed speak louder than words as with everything in life there is a time and a place for it all.

I love to write even if it’s just about everyday nonsense which makes up parts of my crazy life. I love to write and use words to express things and when I can to share happiness too.

Written words can and do say and mean so much and what’s more you can revisit them and just like a photograph or a song they can change your mood in an instant.

We all use so much modern technology today but something that I wish for especially as my children grow up in this fast moving, ever changing world is that the power of words expressed vocally or written is never lost.

Happy Friday everyone.❤x

Busy busy

Somehow its thursday already and I’ve lost count of what number day it is of the holidays but I do know there is just less than 2 weeks to go until it’s back to school and work.

I’ve had my birthday which was a nice day with family and loved ones followed by a catch up with my fabulous friends. I have been a very lucky girl.

The biggest two have gone off with their dad for the last 2 week’s and despite them only being gone less than 2 days I am missing them already.

Today it’s me and the smallest people we have made cakes, been to the park and headed over to Pets at home where we had lots of fun handling a baby rabbit and a baby guinea pig. The children were then able to feed the animals and were given a poster, stickers and an information booklet all about animals and wildlife~what a fab afternoon. ❤x

Paris 2018

It’s hard to believe that this time last week we were in the beautiful city of Paris.

I don’t think I have enough words to express just what an amazing weekend it was, I will however try!

We started our journey at 5.20am (big shout out to Mum and Dad for being our taxi driver), and were soon enroute to London to catch the Eurostar.

Before we knew it we were off, I have never travelled on the Eurostar before it was great and we would definitely do so again.

We arrived in Paris at lunchtime and found our way to our hotel. After dropping our luggage off we headed out in search of the Eiffel tower. Fortunately my wonderful other half has a much better sense of direction than me and it wasn’t long before we caught our first glimpse of it, and found ourselves heading towards it.

I simply couldn’t believe how breathtakingly amazing it was and indeed how high it was! As we stood gazing at it my first thoughts were how on earth am I going to manage going up there tomorrow?!

We continued to wander and happened upon a fantastic food market which sold just about every variety of food you can think of. It all smelt amazing. Next we walked over the bridge and looked down over part of the river Seine.

Further across the road we saw beautiful fountains and watched people dancing and rollerblading performing fantastic moves.

We headed back and found a lovely restaurant for dinner before returning back pretty exhausted to the hotel.

On Saturday morning I was slightly nervous aswell as excited for our visit to the Eiffel tower. Fortunately for our legs we had booked elevator tickets! The views just got more and more amazing the higher we went and as we boarded the elevator to take us to the highest point my fear was clearly quite evident as the doors closed a kind American gentleman turned to me and said ‘just imagine everyone is naked, I replied I’m not sure what’s worse hee hee’ the thought of a packed lift of naked strangers was enough to take my mind off of the inevitable thank goodness!

I needn’t of worried it was amazing at the top the clouds looked so so close in comparison to everything else around us,it was a beautifully clear day and we could literally see for miles.

We had pink champagne and big smiles before making our way back down this time using both the elevator and stairs.

By now it was time for lunch and we did of course head to the food market. We then proceeded to walk for what felt like miles in search of an open patisserie so I could get a strawberry tart. Well let me tell you it was so worth the walk,to say it was delicious would be an understatement.

After being out for a long old time we walked back to the hotel, my poor feet where starting to protest so we had a quick rest before going out to see Paris at night.

The atmosphere was fantastic, with lots of people around enjoying the warm evening and of course the Eiffel tower lit up in all its glory. The lights gradually came on and then started twinkling as the sun had set and darkness was surrounding us.

We had a wonderful evening and it was gone midnight when we got back. All too soon it was Sunday morning and time to get ourselves back to England were we arrived home with lots more memories and photographs captured in our hearts and minds.

So there you have it Paris 2018 a weekend I will never forget. However that’s not quite the end of that adventure, keep your eyes peeled for the next chapter still to come.❤x

What is love?

When I was young,love seemed like a fairy tale.

Girl meets boy and they have their very own happy ever after.

As I grew up I began to realise that love doesn’t quite work like that. Love isn’t always hearts and flowers.

Sometimes it’s wiping away tears and giving apologies, because love can be stupid and also foolish too it’s not perfect but when two people love each other they take the good with the bad.

Sometimes it’s staying up all night finding the solution and never letting go.

It’s about believing in each other no matter what and seeing clearly when one of you can’t.

It’s hugs in the rain and kissing away the pain.

Love may be many things and it shows itself in lots of ways. Above all it’s wonderful and caring,kind,patient and always there.
