For the last 7 days I took part in a black and white photograph challenge. I love photos they are fantastic memories.

The photos had to be of your own everyday life, no people included.

Here are my photos~each one has a meaning to me. ❤️x


This one was taken whilst out having a walk along the seafront with the kids. Something we all enjoy doing, and a definite advantage of living near the sea. The fact it has my name on it is clearly an added advantage and made the kids laugh when they saw it, when ever we do that walk we look for it.It’s no secret that I’m always running late and am rarely on time! This was sent to me by my very good friend and quite frankly I feel that it sums me up perfectly! A cheeky Costa with a special young lady~we had been out and about shopping and couldn’t resist stopping for coffee and hot chocolate.Our suitcases ready for our fab trip to Venice back in October~just looking at this pic makes me smile, an amazing place to visit with amazing company.We went here in the summer for afternoon tea to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was so nice, the food was beautiful and it was a wonderful setting too.Flowers that I was given to cheer me up, when the sick bug have entered our house and I was feeling pretty rubbish.This is actually a coaster on my coffee table, but I love the words, and I think they are important words to remember and live by.



Day Forty ❤️


Day Forty of 40 days of happiness~well as ever there’s been several moments I could of chosen including my lovely friend texting me and asking if I would like some breakfast brought into work today to help me with my diet,and my boy helping me this morning when I was in a rush by taking the rubbish bins out and carrying my bags out to the car for me.

Over the last 40 days there has been highs and lows, laughter and tears, stressful times and good times, throughout all of this I wanted to highlight that during every day there is something happy no matter how big or small.

As ever I am thankful for everyone in my crazy life, they love me, support me and in turn bring lots of happiness to me. I am a lucky girl,turning 40 is definitely all good. Much love.❤️x


Venice 2017

I’m not quite sure where to start if I’m honest, I’ve never been to Italy before and I was totally blown away by the whole experience.

It was such a peaceful, beautiful country and I would definetly love to go again.

We walked for miles and saw some breathtaking scenery, everywhere we looked there was so much to see.

From the beautiful buildings to the lovely clear waters that surrounded us, gondolas, boats, bridges to cross and lots of different sights to see.

I’m sure it won’t come as any surprise when I say that one of my favourite places we visited was a small coffee bar which smelt amazing before we even stepped in the door. Along the back wall was a long row of different coffee beans which you could buy and have ground. There was a huge coffee grinder and coffee beans sacks hanging up too. The coffee was fantastic too, we really could of spent all day in there.

The hotel we stayed in was really nice, we stayed just outside of Venice but it was easy to get to, once we had negotiated the bus service! The food was great~I am particularly jealous of the pancake maker they had and would most definetly love to have brought it home!

Speaking of food~we had some wonderful food whilst out and about, the pizza and ice cream where particularly good~although everywhere we went it all looked so good.

The time went so quick but we managed to see and do a lot of things, which included laughing and smiling the whole time! The best thing about the whole trip was who I went with, he really is such amazing company and I couldn’t of wished for more.

On the plane home I came across some of my old blog posts that I had drafted and it made me smile seeing how our personal journey is progressing from our very first date to this day now.

If time is really all we’ve got spend it wisely~choose love, be with who you want to be with, love and live well. Always keep your loved ones close, friends and family they mean so much. Go out and have fun with no regrets. Dream big and be happy.

On that soppy note I shall leave you with more photos!

Much love to you all.❤️x
