For you…

Some days it’s laughter and giggles

Some days it’s tears and shouts

But every single day no matter what it’s the love that counts.

Maybe they can’t see it and maybe they wonder why I get frustrated.

They think I go on and on and that my advice is so outdated!

I often say this and I know it to be true, that one day we will look back at these days and laugh about the trantrums,smile about the pain.

We will want to be reminded of these days once again.

For being a parent is hard at times it has to be said, sometimes you don’t even want to get out of bed, to face the moaning and the stress of who ate the last cereal or who made all of the mess!

Over the years we know there will be tears and giggles aplenty.

Good times, bad times we will face them all and deal with them gently.

Take each day as it comes and forgive easily.

Never forgetting that although I may drive you as crazy as you drive me, I shed tears that you do not see, because I love you more than you’ll ever know and I just love to watch you grow.

When your older you will know that despite all the times you thought I was wrong, there was method in my madness, for what I want for you is health,love and happiness.

So this is for you, although I may be a pain in the bum, I love you so very much. Lots of love always



Dreams can come true…

I’ve been sat here listening to ‘A million dreams’ from the greatest showman.

I love that film and I love the songs too, this one in particular.

I feel it captures the essence of life, that surely it’s never too late to dream and plan for the life you want, things you want to achieve.

It’s no secret that I’m now 40yrs eek how did that happen?! I’m sure last time I checked I was only 21yrs, still there are lots of things I’m looking forward to planning.

Sometimes life has different things in store to what you may have hoped/wished for. It can set you on an unexpected path, but who knows where that path may lead and what journey you might find yourself travelling.

Dream big and go for it, if some thing Is good grab it with both hands and hold on tight. After all you’ll never know unless you try. ❤️x
