100 Years, 1000 Memories

Yesterday marked what would have been my Nana’s one hundredth birthday. I was planning to write an entire post all about her but having spent the day at work then travelling fifty-minutes in the car through to the florist, followed by the cemetery, I was far too tired upon arriving home to do anything other than to slump on the sofa and to catch up with the kids.

It was a beautiful spring afternoon when I arrived at the cemetery, the sun was low in the sky and the entire town was aglow in the distance. I parked my very own Mini (which is the car which Gran was well-known for driving) close by her grave and made my way to her plaque with flowers in hand.…

Happy 3rd Blog Birthday

Three years ago, I began a rather interesting online journey in the form of a blog. Never for a second did I imagine than my writing would be anything other than a hobby, three years later though I have made a whole group of new friends, have met some incredible people and I have experienced some amazing opportunities all thanks to being a blogger.

What is a blogger? I’m not entirely sure. I may have spent the past three years sharing posts online, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m just a girl with a laptop that likes to share some parts of her life online. Don’t get me wrong, I love blogging but it hasn’t come without its issues.…

Party Central

Talk about treacherous, the weather last night went from bad to worse. I was half expecting to wake to a garden without a greenhouse. Thankfully the trampoline held on tight and whilst the deck chairs had flown across the lawn, the damage was minimal. Paul very kindly put things back into their rightful place then we proceeded with our day.

I began by taking E along to her friends birthday party, I was therefore required to sit and make polite parental conversation for two hours whilst covertly sniping snacks to keep my hunger at bay.

Whilst some parents are happy to leave their little ones, I’m still a little on the apprehensive side when it comes to E.…

#LivingArrows – Days & Nights Out 48/53 (2018)

These past few months have been none-stop, we’ve done something almost every weekend and have found ourselves occupied with endless appointments, parties, meetings, after-school activities, clubs and goodness knows what else throughout the week.

Both Paul and I are exhausted, I’m pretty sure that the kids feel likewise. Life is most definitely busy, I barely get time to blog these days although try my best to keep up wherever and whenever I can.

We’ve enjoyed both days and nights out together as family, we’ve certainly played and partied hard. With it being the run up to Christmas, I highly doubt that we will have much time to relax before the big day.…

Happy 100 Years

It’s not often that you get to celebrate someone turning one hundred years of age, I doubt that I’ll ever reach three figures and if I should happen to make it that far, then I’m sure I won’t be anywhere as near as ‘with it’ as Paul’s Nana is at present.

This weekend people from all over the country came together to celebrate an incredibly special ladies incredibly special birthday. It was an honour to be part of the celebrations and even more so to be in charge of the Music and entertainment for the evening. Many thanks to all those that brought disco lights along, with the added extension cables – we were close to out doing Blackpool Illuminations!…
