A smile money can’t buy…

I started a blog earlier in the holiday about how I was at a pivotal stage in my life…how I’d worked hard for years to build a career…blah blah blah. Today I told H that when we get home from holiday I won’t be working on a Friday so I’ll be home with her to… Continue reading A smile money can’t buy…

When alright feels all wrong…

It's a scary time when you think things may be going off track. When your health can't be taken for granted, when your job security gets wobbly, your family start falling out. You rethink what you're doing, make resolutions to yourself that you'll change things if you get chance…just wanting everything to be alright. I've… Continue reading When alright feels all wrong…

I’ve found the off switch!

Frozen has a lot to answer for… Well a 7inch plastic Elsa doll to be precise…with a moulded blue dress and scratchy tule cloak attached with small slithers of surprisingly effective Velcro. And big almond shaped eyes. Did you know there are articles about the size of these eyes? The Psychology of Giant Princess Eyes.… Continue reading I’ve found the off switch!

Have a relax now mummy.

For 10 minutes while I play…

I’m building you a sand castle. Don’t watch…its just for you.
Close your eyes please Mummy. When it’s finished I’ll tell you.
But the sand is just too crumbly. It won’t stand up at all.
Come and get some water Mummy…I need you. I’m too small.

Have a relax now Mummy. I’ve a bucket full as can be.
You can have 10 minutes now…my sand is all soggy.

The waters disappearing…where is it going to?
Why does it do that Mummy….I’m digging as fast as two!
Can you turn it over Mummy…in case I get it wrong?
You can relax in a minute Mummy when this castle buildings done.

Have a relax now Mummy. The castle stands proud.
You can have 10 minutes now. I’ll try not make a sound.

One pair of sea legs…lost at gym!

A cold, refreshing Peroni in the Sunset bar. Abandoned in favour of jungle boogie and movie night. But the sun is beaming down over the Mediterranean as I watch the waves billow a trail behind the boat. Showing where we have been…a track back to Cadiz if you cared to follow it...and I've been to… Continue reading One pair of sea legs…lost at gym!

A few ice creams down…but room for shoes!

I have been overshadowed. Birthday wishes lost in the Facebook frenzy. Timelines rolling faster than the "new stories" flash could cope with. Outrage, disbelief, threats and name calling. I had to stop looking as I watched friends and families bickering. Disappointed at each other for using their vote and having an opinion...questioning democracy when it goes… Continue reading A few ice creams down…but room for shoes!

A big salary won’t give you a hug..

Today I'm cheating with this blog. I'm re-using something that popped up as my Memory of the day...a Facebook function I simply love. Reminding you of funny moments, funny faces, friends we used to laugh with, friends we still hang out with...a younger you. Posts about your night in, tags about your night out, cartoon… Continue reading A big salary won’t give you a hug..

No day before packing for me!

So I did it. A very busy few weeks at work plus I finished the Clean 9 plan...and I'm pleased with myself. It's a good job I was doing it this week because my back has been very sore and to go to the gym has been out of the question. All the hard work… Continue reading No day before packing for me!
