I did it

I wanted to do it but when I woke up this morning I didn’t want to do it.
I had plenty of reasons (excuses)for not wanting to including the fact that it was raining/snowing, I felt uncomfortable with myself in my clothes, I was tired the list of excuses could of been endless.

However I did it~I got up and went to the gym. It felt like starting all over again.
I had just got myself into a routine of going and then lockdown 3 took care of that.

I was self concious walking in but once I got started it was fine.

6 miles on the bike later and I left feeling a hundred times better than I did when I woke up this morning.

Small steps for a big gain both mentally and physically.

Happy Monday~now pass me the coffee! ❤x

Treasure Hunt

On Tuesday we set off for a train ride to sunny Brighton.

To embark on a ‘Treasure Hunt’ .

Which was fabulously organised and right at our fingertips.

I loved the whatsapp style of receiving clues which allows you to ask for hints and help should you need it.

Aswell as the fascinating facts that were very interesting and nice to uncover about a much loved place to visit .

Within our team~2 adults and 2 teenagers, we decided I would read the clues and facts and the others would map read and be on extra lookout!

This worked well and between us we soon got into the swing of it.

It took us roughly 2.5 hours to complete which may of included a quick stop or 2 for coffee~of course!

The treasure hunt, took us around Brighton town, down the lanes and also along the seafront, which was a really lovely walk, so much to see and take in on our way round, which kept everyone entertained and occupied.

The treasure hunt was a great way to see Brighton in a different and was a hit with both the adults and teenagers alike and if that’s not a win then I don’t know what is hee hee.

A big thank-you to https://treasurehuntbrighton.com/?utm_medium=referral&utm_source=crazylittlethingcalledlove.co.uk

for a lovely day out.❤x

*our treasure hunt was gifted to us, all reviews/thoughts are my own*.

Oh Mum

‘Oh Mum why are you wearing heels just to come to the supermarket?’
Was Ads question this morning
I think him and the guy behind us where both baffled as I tried to explain that these are just normal heels, not ‘Heels’as such.


If you know you!
Happy Sunday.❤x

Nobody said it was easy

Single and trying to navigate the world of online dating was never going to be easy.

Dating apps are everywhere and the same faces tend to pop up on them all~including mine!

This particular email made me chuckle when I saw it in my inbox ‘Natalie they meet your expectations ‘.

Expectations? That word has huge meaning ,anyone would think that I am sitting here with a long list of expectations for any suitable male to have to wade through!

Besides that~I’ll be the judge of who meets my expectations thanks very much and trust me it will take more than a photograph and a few typed out words that’s for sure.

Maybe that’s why I’m still single haha.❤x

Proud Mama

In keeping with these crazy times,I’ve just had Ads parents consultation on zoom~it was certainly a little different but as ever it made me emotional.

To hear his teacher say I should be proud of him, brought a tear to my eye.
This parenting lark isn’t easy and it certainly doesn’t come with a handbook.


You just keep plodding on,hoping that you are doing your best.
I’m a proud Mama today and everyday.
Well done my boy.❤x

Music

I heard this in the car earlier~had to turn it up and sing along of course!
Then recorded it and sent it to my big sis. Was one of our favourites back in the day. I love how music can bring back so many memories.❤x
