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

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

Life is a roller coaster…

So here I am aged 43yrs feeling quite frankly like an old version of my teenage self complete with horrible hormones, mood swings and everything in between.

I am embarking on a new journey which is apparently called ‘the menopause’ thats the medical term for it, I could offer my own name for it but it probably wouldn’t be very polite!

Yes it’s finally happening my body is basically going full circle in its stages of life and after having a hysterectomy (5 years ago now) it has decided to grace me with the following joys


*hot sweats
*increased insomnia~who knew that was even possible!
*a full range of extensive hormones which could hands down rival my teenage daughters any day of the week!

I could go on but I won’t spoil it for you hehe.

Something that has definitely got worse (and yes I admit this has never been my strong point )
Is the ability to concentrate and indeed remember~well hardly anything at all.

For example~Thursday evening whilst I thought the gammon joint I was preparing for dinner was cooking nicely in the oven, you can imagine my surprise when I opened the oven to find myself looking at an empty roasting tin!

I kid you not my first response was ‘where on earth has the meat disappeared to’.

Realising that it couldn’t of simply vanished from the oven~I scanned the kitchen to find it sitting on top of the oven waiting to be cooked.

I wish I could say these things didn’t happen to me on a daily basis but sadly that would be lying.

Anyhow I’m off to try and get some adulting done~and if you haven’t already seen my top tip of trying to mend your ripped top 2 mins before you are meant to be leaving the house then do be aware that strong glue isn’t the answer!

Happy Saturday everyone .

Here we go again?

Love them or hate them~dating sites are everywhere.

I’m no stranger to them but for the time being I’m giving them all a swerve.

Although its got me thinking about the funny side of them~after all that is how ‘Crazy little thing called love’ came about almost 3years ago.

From the funny conversation starters
‘I’ve lost my number can I have yours?’

To the fairly obvious ‘What are you doing on here?’ Erm I am single,so I guess I am on here for the same reason as you?!

Not forgetting the classic~’why are you single?’ Now that’s a question only the brave would want an honest answer to haha.

To the first dates~turning up late with nail glue stuck in my teeth and a broken shoe.

Not eating as I can never eat on a first date (no matter how hungry I am.)

Either not being able to string two words together or suffering from verbal diarrhoea (not sure which is worse to be honest!)

Then there is that awkward moment when you turn up to find that your date looks nothing like their profile picture #awkward.

Who would of thought that finding love could have so many challenges, at least there has been lots of giggles along the way.

Speaking of which I love this application form!

Me…

Having recently restarted my blog. I thought I would introduce myself and tell you a little about me.

I am a 42yrs old,sleep deprived,coffee loving Mum of 2 teenagers.

I had hoped by now that I would have my life in some kind of order but organisation and I don’t really fit together in the same sentence!

Anyhow this is me….

I have been married, divorced, engaged and single. My current relationship status is probably best described as ‘is joining a nunnery an option for me?’ hee hee.

I look forward to sharing the highs and lows of life, parenting and that crazy little thing called love.

A new start…

So here I am with a new blog page~ but with the same content which I hope you will continue to enjoy.

Sometimes in life you realise that the bad days propel you into the better days.

The tears of sadness begin to subside and are slowly replaced with ones of joy.

That a new chapter in life,although may be scary can be an amazing thing.

The past has its place for lessons learnt and memories made~move forward,be brave, take with you what you need but leave the things that hold you back and hurt you.

Here’s to many more memories to share, smiles to be had and love to surround us all.❤x
