*57* a day in London

Yesterday I took a day out from College work and mum-duty to spend a day in London with my sister in law. We crammed a lot in and walked for miles and miles and it was so much fun. The weather was glorious for the first time in weeks too. First stop, the Serpentine Gallery […]

*49* day out – Chastleton House

For the first time in ages, and I mean… months, yesterday we had a free Saturday; no sport commitment, no school events, no family duties. Nothing. And the sun was shining. I promised you it felt like we were on holiday! ‘The big boys’ were on a hockey tournament miles and miles away, Mr took […]

It’s a little early, Mr M is still asleep, I’m sitting on the deck overlooking the sea.  It’s a little rough this morning and the sound of the wave crashing over the rocks below me is loud and demands attention.  It reminds you the world is alive. There’s a small green gecko sleeping on the […]

  Another day… more of the same.  I’m not complaining. Exploring with Mr M. I swear this has been put up purely to create a photo opportunity.  It’s pretty but not very comfortable.

– 2018/149 – 24hrs in London

Me and the boys took ourselves to the big smoke on Thursday morning; we had finally managed to get an appointment at the Italian Consulate for their passports and we thought we tagged along a visit to the Tate Modern and a mooch about. The weather was glorious and we had a blast.  We caught […]

– 2018/147 – postcards from Croatia

I’m back!! The suitcases have been emptied, the first load of washing is in and I’ve put away the grocery delivery (genius move on my behalf, no trips to the supermarket on the first day back home…), so coffee in hand I’m going to show you the wonderfulness that is Croatia, Southern Croatia, the Dalmatian […]

– 2018/138 – a weekend away

I’m back. I’m tired. I’d like to get back to bed but I have a lunch date with a friend, a laundry room that is so full I need to excavate the washing machine in order to use it, half a dozen 13yr olds coming later on this afternoon for a get together (they’re not […]
