I’m not ready yet.

I actually started a post with this title last year but got taken away from it and never finished it. I tend to write them as a stream of consciousness so find it hard sometimes to go back to where my thoughts were heading. The principal last year was the same as this one really.…

A spirited child.

One of my friend's refers to children like toddler P as spirited, I refer to her as bonkers! She's crazy, full of life and energy. She runs at 100mph from morning until night. Another of my friend's thinks she needs her own comedy sketch show. Little P is hilarious, she's got a vivid imagination, whether…

It’s bloody well hard!

Anyone that says being a mum isn't hard work is lying. It's bloody hard and at times I'll openly admit, I feel like I don't want to be a single mum or even a mum. That said, in reality I do, overall I love it more than anything, it's the hardest but the bestest job…

Standing by your decisions.

A lesson I've learnt through life is that there will always be people that don't like the choices and decisions you make. Whether it's your parents trying to convince you that university is the best option for you (lord knows what else I was going to do but I was adamant for long enough that…

Bittersweet.

So I've been on a trip down memory lane this summer. It was my first time in a long time, back down in our annual family holiday destination. There's a point on the road into Cornwall where you see some specific looking trees on the hillside, my cousin told me that they're the coming home…

Moving on.

Someone recently asked me if I'd met anyone else since leaving my husband. No I haven't, I've been on a date, I've met a few people and without sounding full of myself, no one has really caught my attention, no one has felt good enough for me-take from that whatever you wish. When I said…

Make a plan

I saw this quote on Instagram the other day and shared it. It's so true, for everything! Yesterday I wrote about my nutrition and fitness regime and the fact is I know plan my meals and my activity, it's planned and written down so I stick to it...more or less. How do I address things…

What gets measured gets managed.

A friend suggested that maybe I posted this when I'm further into my weightloss journey, however the purpose and meaning of the post would be lost then and if I considered it that way then I'm losing sight of what the man who's inspired me to write this has taught me. It's not a weightloss…

3 years ago today.

3 years ago today I had what I never realised would be my last ever conversation with my Dad. I skipped off for a picnic with a friend and returned home that evening to him in resuscitation wearing an oxygen mask joking to me that I shouldn't worry because he might be dead tomorrow, two…
