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.

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

Mother’s day and everyday

In this ever changing world we find ourselves in ~one thing that never changes is the love that holds us all together even during times that we must be apart.


Today and everyday~we celebrate the love, the memories and the wonderful times ahead.
In a year we have said goodbye to our wonderful nan ,we have also welcomed new arrivals and one of my beautiful nieces (I am blessed to have 3) has become a Mummy for the first time too.


I simply cannot wait for us all to be together to hug you all and to meet my new great niece and nephew.

Happy Mothers day everyone.❤ x

Hump Day

Today definitely felt like hump day quite literally.

Try as I might I just couldn’t summons any motivation.

Fortunately after several coffees and a break in the rain,we left the house for a walk and a cheeky coffee.

The fresh air was much needed and I was very happy with my pics that I got too.

Happy hump day~I hope its been kind to you.❤x

Today…

I was standing in the kitchen washing up, thinking about the day ahead, what food we will eat, what to wear etc, wondering if I would wear shorts as its hot but you know I hate my legs~the list could go on.

When perspective slapped me in the face ~hard!

Tomorrow we have to face a huge challenge saying farewell to our super nan~together but apart from eachother.

With that in mind~what does it matter how I look in shorts? What does it matter if I haven’t got it all together today, if the house is a mess or the ironing is piling up?

It doesn’t but those small things play on my mind and I wish they wouldn’t.

I want to see the bigger picture~appreciate the here and now.
Appreciate everyone who is in my life and cherish those who are no longer here but have shaped my life and filled my heart with love and memories that time can never steal.

I have no words to describe how I feel about tomorrow being so close but so far away from my loving family.

One thing is for sure though we will get through this together.

I found myself quoting Dads words to my boy the other day ‘there is nothing that can’t be sorted together’.

So now as I get my 2nd or is it 3rd coffee of the morning~I am planning to make the most of that ‘prospective slap’, get out in the fresh air, have a picnic with my the kids and make more memories. Seize the day and yes wear the damn shorts!!

Lots of love to everyone.❤ x
