Merry Christmas x

It’s been such a year this year, when I started here just this March I had no idea what wonderful and gorgeous people I would get to meet on the way. I feel I have made friends with people who in real every day life I would not of had the privilege to meet. I am hoping that I get to meet some of you sometime soon. With my blog, when I was thinking of the name … Read entire article »

Follower or leader?

I thought of this post when out on a bike ride. Bike riding I will add is great place to think about such things. Though best only to do this when out on a cycle track opposed to a road!!! I like to ride at the back, so when I found myself at the front I really felt uncomfortable. Yes I could set the speed but that for me was the only advantaged. Well that got me thinking, because as such I am not really a natural leader. When I asked my husband for him to go up front, he laughed and I joked that I am indeed not a natural leader. Then and I truly could have kicked myself that I didn’t take a camera with us because then in the field … Read entire article »

My Mum is 40 today

A special post by our daughter Bex today to celebrate Ali (my wife’s) 40th and what she means to Bex and not forgetting Oscar!! Well it’s mums 40th today and she doesn’t look a day over 30 and she’s as amazing as ever! A mum, a friend and a fabulous advice giver to me. Most my friends call their mums bossy, uncool and strict but my mum is NOTHING like that and is my most trustworthy reliable friend as well as someone who cares for me and always makes sure I’m alright, that’s what my mum is all about putting other people before herself and always sticks by it almost like her policy. Mum is also very supportive in what I want to do with my life and I know that whatever … Read entire article »

Picnics past, present & future

My plan for National Picnic week went a bit, well wrong, my recipes never happened and my great places to picnic list never well got typed. That is the way it goes sometimes and enough hours in the day, we all know if only more. So my Sunday waffle is going to be some of my favourite picnic’s etc. Who remembers picnic’s when they were younger, I always think picnic’s do really create happy memories. Whether you go away from the house (not always though) you have nice things to eat or they just taste nicer as your on a picnic. Simple picnics on summer holidays, weren’t the summer holidays always sunny when you were younger. Henrietta park in Bath, next to the climbing tree. Perfect, my Mum taking us, that is my sister … Read entire article »

A Smile

A smile what is it worth to you? I have just come back from a walk with my dogs, I dragged the husband along too and along the way as usual I was waving and saying hi to people as they either walked or drove past. My husband permanently saying who was that then and how do you know them. It’s funny really I have always been like that, where ever I have lived, that is just the way I am, but don’t think I am some mad person (well I am really!) that just says hi to anyone, it is about a friendly face really and if you smile at someone they usually smile back and isn’t it better to smile? Though my smiley face has got me in trouble, but we … Read entire article »

Smile, think and grrrr of the week

  Things that made me smile this week: 1. My daughters new friends Mum (never spoken to her before) rings me in the morning (7.30) to ask about the dance class that the girls were going too, I give a long P.R explanation of the company who run it, the teacher and basically how fab it is. Finally when I draw breath she asks I was just wondering what they wear, how much it is and what time it finishes !!! When will I realise I am an adult too ? 2. My daughter texting Mum above from my phone (she is out of credit) message to her friend goes ‘Can’t meet u this a.m meet u in quiet area @ break going to Doc’s.’ Which number did you text that too? ” … Read entire article »
