I had a really enjoyable afternoon out with my mum yesterday. She’s, let’s say…the latter side of an 80 something year young woman and we often enjoy afternoons out together.
I genuinely enjoy spending time with her, not just because she’s my mum and I love her to bits, but because she’s funny and a pleasure to be around. She finds it hard to accept her age, because in her head she’s still in her 60’s, if not younger. I’m the same, I can’t believe I’m 53, because in my head I’m in my 30’s. Yes she’s got a few niggles with this and that health wise, well actually, a lot of niggles, in fact I’d be here all blooming day if I had to list them all, but you don’t get to mums ripe age without gathering a few ‘blooming nuisance‘ (as mum puts it), aches and pains, but let’s just say she can’t do any cartwheels the way she used to.

Over the last year I’ve made a few changes to my life. I sold my business and my house so that myself and Jon could move onto his boat, which after being on board since last October we feel totally settled and feel it was a positive move, but after things have now settled down, there is one other major change which I have noticed has taken place, mainly for myself – my fitness and my health.

For the last 3 years or so, I’ve had a little niggle in the groin area. I have generally managed to ignore it for most of the time, carrying on with my dog walking business, mountain biking, snowboarding, surfing and walking, being too busy to do anything about it and hoping it would just fix itself. Since selling my business and knowing it hadn’t just gone away, I thought I’d pop into the Doc’s to see what they had to say… Continue reading “Knocked sideways!!”
Yeahy! I couldn’t let this day pass!
Most readers of my blog will know that two members of our family are our dogs, Rosie (Collie) and Mille (Pug). We love them, they are such characters so I thought I’d embarrass them both by showing their puppy photo’s as it’s National Puppy Day. Continue reading “It’s National Puppy Day!”
The last year has been incredibly busy so sitting down and reading a book wasn’t really a possibility and I have to say, I have missed reading and I have a pile of books waiting to be picked up, but one book in particular has rushed to the top of the pile lately – Glimpses. Continue reading “A great read – Glimpses”
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and much merriment!
For us, like most people, Christmas was a time to switch off, take a step back and spend quality time with family.
We had a great Christmas in our camper van, Polly. We drove up North on Christmas Eve to visit with my family where we spent the time between Christmas Eve and Boxing Day generally eating too much, drinking too much, playing games, (which got quite raucous at times) and laughing a lot, then on Boxing Day evening we drove down South to do much of the same with Jon’s family. We are here now to see in the New Year in Cornwall. Continue reading “One year on…”
The lovely Hugh over at hughsviewsandnews.com has put his Christmas tree up and is hoping to raise money for The Dogs Trust.

Such a wonderful charity Hugh, Good Luck ☺️🐶
December. I had so much planned for this month. It was the month I was going to ‘get on top of things’. Get ahead with my blog that is. I’d organised to ‘tick off’ my quite large blogging ‘To Do’ list, but then I realised Christmas is coming and takes over as priority, Santa’s on his way. Someone told me it’s only a few weeks to go before those big black boots come down the chimney! So, loving Christmas as I do and having not realised how near it was, a new ‘To Do’ list was written, a Christmas one. Continue reading “Tis the season…”
We’ve all heard of dating agencies right? But did you know about the over 50’s dating scene? Okay, okay I can hear you all shouting, “yes of course we do”, well where the hell have I been? I didn’t know there was such a thing as an ‘over 50’s dating agency’, but there is, senior dating is a thing! Continue reading “Over 50 and ‘In Love’ again”
When I heard the sad news that David Cassidy had passed away, I’d just made a cuppa and was sitting down to work on a blog post I was in the middle of writing, but instead I just sat and contemplated for a while. Hearing this news sparked a few memories for me. Continue reading “When sad news triggers good memories”
There comes a time when you turn around and your children choose not to hold your hand when crossing the road anymore, they are little more independent every day, they begin to tackle their own problems, you find out they had a cold and you didn’t even know about it, but they got healthy again without you fussing around them with hot honey and lemon drinks, hot water bottles & without those ‘mummy’ cuddles. You turn around and they’ve grown up. Continue reading “Living the Dream”
Moving onto the boat is becoming reality
The whole change of lifestyle and moving onto the boat thing is moving quite rapidly now. Continue reading “It’s all happening…”
So I’m starting to blog. Maybe I thought I’d give myself another challenge, not sure why really, but I just thought I’d give it a go. Continue reading “Turned Fifty and this is my first blog…”
