#MySundayPhoto – Keep It Cool

Most of my pictures tend to be taken at the beach, there is something rather free, easy and stressless about the shoreline. I’m often found sat by the shore taking some time out as I watch the seagulls fly by, and listen to the sound of the sea.

We’ve had the most wonderful weather of late, the heat has been immense, so much so that l’ve become a bit of a night owl if only to indulge in the cooler temperatures. There’s no better place to catch a breeze and to cool down than sat by the beach, five minutes kicked back whilst watching the World go by can make all the difference to a difficult day.…

#SaturdaySmiles – Hillsides, High Tides & Hugs

This will be my first post for #SaturdaySmiles, my brand new linky. #SaturdaySmiles will be a regular weekly linky to reflect and to list some of the highlights from the week gone by. I have written a separate post explaining the guidelines should you fancy taking part.

We’ve had such an incredibly busy week I’m not entirely sure how I’m still standing. So before exhaustion kicks in and I collapse I’d best set about making a start on this post. So without further ado, here are this weeks #SaturdaySmiles.



I’ve not really watched a huge amount of television nor read many books this week.…

Things I have Liked and Loved in April 2018

April sure has been a busy month – we seem to have such an incredible amount in such a short space of time. I wouldn’t say that time has exactly flown as it’s felt like forever waiting for pay-day but I’ve certainly kept myself entertained and exhausted throughout the month. Here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout April.


We Added A Further Four Paws To Our Family

We’ve been planning on getting a puppy for some time now and earlier this month we did precisely that. Maisy, our beautiful basset hound was eight weeks old when she came to us and since arriving she has made herself right at home and is growing at an incredible pace.…

#MySundayPhoto – Beach Ride

It’s been over a year since I last rode a horse, I’ve been meaning to book a ride for some time now but with working weekends I had little to no time in which to do much of anything. Thankfully working weekends is no longer an issue, I was therefore finally able to get back into the saddle and to make the best of yesterdays beautiful weather with a beach ride.

It was great to have a little time out to myself: being sat in the saddle has always given me the much-needed ‘peace’ which my mind seems to crave.

I was rather nervous about getting back on the horse, much-like riding a bike though – it all came flooding back.…

#MySundayPhoto – Seeking Solace At The Shore

A moment to oneself is a rarity at present, gone are the days when I have the time to tootle down to the shore and sit contemplating the wonders of the World.

It’s all very well having time to yourself but for someone like myself, it’s far better to keep busy as having the time to sit and ponder isn’t healthy nor productive.

Earlier this week I was given two hours rest bite from the parenting pandemonium. After dropping my little darlings off with their Grandparents, I had fully intended to go straight back to the house of hound but having had a taste for freedom, I took a detour and sought sanctuary at the shore.…
