From Chaos To Clean

Theres something incredibly satisfying about cleaning the entire house top to bottom, tidying everything to within an inch of its life and after three hours of hard graft then heading for a hot shower followed by a long soak in the tub.

It’s like having a workout without the DVD or the exercise class, that and after a few hours hard work I now have a clean house, it wont last for long I’m sure as the kids are due home from School shortly. Between the children and the dog it’s almost impossible to keep a clean, tidy house for long.…

#MySundayPhoto – Winter Is Coming

I fully intended to be far more active on my blog this week but as per usual life happened. I’m well aware that it’s a pathetic excuse for any blogger to give but it’s the best that I have at present.

Here we are once again at the end of yet another weekend, the majority of which I’ve spent busy behind the bar as always, although I managed to get out and about for a few hours yesterday which helped blow the cobwebs away.

It may have been bitterly cold outside but we wrapped up warm and embraced the outdoors for a play on the park and a blast on the beach followed by cake and steaming, hot chocolates at the local bistro bar.…

Films For A Friday – My Top Ten Favourite Rom-Coms

It’s Friday once again and as always on a dark night following a busy bar shift I’m curled up all cosy and warm in the comfort of my bed ready to watch a ‘Friday night film’. I have numerous film favourites most of which tend to be within the rom-com genre as they are easy to watch, give me a giggle and lift my spirits.

Here is a list of my ‘top ten favourite films’ which I have watched countless times over the years.

Dirty Dancing

The all time Swayze classic, Dirty Dancing is most probably the biggest romantic box-office hit of all time featuring a soundtrack which has been used endlessly throughout weddings Worldwide.…

A Parents Point Of View

I’m not sure whether it’s just me but being the parent of two school aged children often leaves me feeling much like I am back at school myself.

Having spent the afternoon reading with the kids in School I then returned home much-like a pack-horse loaded with bags, lunch boxes and coats whilst the children sailed indoors kicking their muddy shoes onto my freshly cleaned carpet whilst simultaneously demanding snacks, drinks and television before I could even get myself through the front door.

I carefully placed the muddy shoes onto the kitchen sideboard ready for cleaning then chased my children up the stairs to remove their dirt ridden pants and tee shirts which only this morning were pristine white.…

#LivingArrows – Sparklers & Sleigh Bells 45/52 (2017)

With less than fifty days to go before the big day arrives I have finally got my backside into gear in terms of Christmas. I’ve spent this afternoon pulling the contents of my wardrobe tops down to get an idea of the bits and pieces which I have managed to collect in the run up to the chaos which is Christmas.

Meanwhile the kids were busy at School no doubt sharing their stories from Bonfire Night. Here are a couple of pictures of the children which were taken yesterday at the local Fireworks display. It was certainly brisk outside but we made sure that we each wore many layers, staying wrapped up with warm rosy cheeks as we stood by the fire.…
