My 2019 Plan!

We all know that I love to plan. I’m the master of planning. I am the Planinator, Planatron? She-Plan, Plan-Woman! And lots of other planning-isms… Therefore I obviously have a plan for 2019. I am positive that it will not be as intense as last year, I really should look at slowing down and finding some more ways to relax, spending time with my loved ones and replenishing my soul! I suppose then, that is my plan. Do less, live more and relax. I do have a few things lined up though… I couldn’t go cold turkey! A trip to … Continue reading My 2019 Plan!

Not your everyday ‘My Holiday’ post.

  I have just returned from another fantastic holiday with my Mum and my son, we’ve been away together quite a few times and we always have so much fun. I adore the relationship that we have, it’s not like a tolerance because we’re family, I genuinely love spending time with both of them. We always have a laugh, sometimes at each others expense, and there’s plenty of silliness, usually from my Mum and I, whilst Christopher stands there and shakes his head. We don’t get on 24/7 of course, there are disagreements to be had, we’re only human, but … Continue reading Not your everyday ‘My Holiday’ post.

I had a dream…

    We all dream, whether or not we remember our dreams is a different matter. I always assumed that everyone had weird, f**ked up dreams. I’ve never had a dream that was just normal. Something bizarre, terrifying or just weird usually happens. I only started thinking about it when I heard someone refer to their dream as weird because in it they owned a cat… Well funnily enough I did dream last night that we had a cat, only this cat could talk and it told me about the flies I had living in my pen…I mean a pen … Continue reading I had a dream…

“What’s your USP?”…

  In my very early days of serious blogging I was chatting to a lady about my blog and she asked to see it. I gave her my site address and she had a quick look. She asked me, “What’s your USP?” USP wasn’t a term I was familiar with so I drew a blank. “Your unique selling point. What is it?” “Oh well, I don’t know. Me, I suppose” Well apparently that wasn’t a good enough answer for this lady who actually had no influence on me or my blog… To be perfectly honest though I think it was … Continue reading “What’s your USP?”…

“What do you mean you don’t drink”?

  I haven’t had an alcoholic drink since the 16th of July. I didn’t really drink a lot to begin with, I’d probably have one with a meal out. So this isn’t me admitting I have a problem. It also wasn’t something I planned. I hadn’t picked a date like you would when quitting an addiction, it was just a spur of the moment decision. I’d been in the lakes with Hayley, Zac and Christopher and on our last day we had a yummy picnic next to the lake and Hayley and I shared three bottles of Brothers Toffee Apple … Continue reading “What do you mean you don’t drink”?

Things I Wish I’d Known When I was 16

    I have had discussions with my son in the past about things that he wasn’t allowed to do. Whether that be playing further away from the house when he was little, staying up late, drinking fizzy drinks or eating sweets that will eventually rot his teeth.  At first, when he was little, he listened and most of the time he did as he was told because I’m his Mum and at that age, to him, I knew best. Then as he got older he started to think for himself and develop his own idea of what was good … Continue reading Things I Wish I’d Known When I was 16
