Dear diary I love it when bear and I manage to go to bed at the same time, it makes the whole world seem right somehow just by falling asleep in his arms. I think we both sleep better too on those nights. I couldn't be any more in love with this man if I... Continue Reading →

written in response to #FOWC My partner is my world, second only to the Bears.Never in my life have I met or loved anyone quite like him. He drives me utterly insane some days but it never dents how much I love or care about him and I know how lucky I am to have... Continue Reading →
Written in response to #Daily Addictions. 30/9/19. Gardening Out in the garden, come rain or come shine Tilling the soil and planting some vine Out in the garden, from dusk until dawn Digging out weeds and mowing the lawn Out in the garden, that’s where Ill be Off to dig carrots up, for our tea.

Dear diary. Weekend apathy set in mid morning yesterday and I haven't dragged myself out of it yet. This track sort of sums up my mood... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLexgOxsZu0 And on that note I am wondering if I can put myself together a playlist for such occasions. One with some upbeat and positive tunes to pull me... Continue Reading →
As any of you who follow regularly will know, I have developed an obsession with meditative artworks of late; mandala's and zentangle to be precise. I found these art forms a few years back and have never really gotten into them as I wrongly thought that they take time and patience to complete, something I... Continue Reading →
Haiku written in response to #WotD. 31/8/19. I look at the view. Deep sea green, white waves on top Skies of Prussian blue
Over on #FOTD the challenge each day is to post a photo of a flower. Normally this isnt an issue for me as we have just gone through spring and summer and autumn is fast approaching I find myself unable to find many flowers to photograph. I did find this little thing growing in my... Continue Reading →
Dear diary. Had my friend round today for a few hours for coffee and a catch up which was nice. It's not often friends get a chance to come round now most of them work and I dont. Its sucky. I'm grateful to those that bother with me regardless of how much shit I've put... Continue Reading →
Over on Cee's Black & White Photo challenge the order of the day is; things made of wood. Here are my entries from my most recent camping trip to the woods.

Written in response to the following challenges; #WotD & #FOWC When I saw todays challenge on #FOWC I nearly fell off my chair! Is that really a word? I have to admit to googling it, just to be sure. Whenever Ive thought about the word highfalutin in the past I have always associated it with... Continue Reading →
Dear diary. The day started in the best possible way, with smiles and giggles from MB1. Her and BB1 stayed the night, a messy experience but worth it for the 7am snuggles I had with little miss whilst BB1 had a few hours lie in. I'm now sat in a wood somewhere staring into a... Continue Reading →
Dear diary. Another hectic day with the bears, I cant wait till they go back to school in three weeks time. It will be heaven and hell rolled into one. Odd how they drive me utterly insane and I want rid of them all the time but when they're gone I do miss them. Had... Continue Reading →
As many of you will know the Bears and I have just returned from our last big trip away for the summer. The Derbyshire dales has so much to offer and has certainly kept us all busy for the four day trip; these are just some of the mirriad of pics taken along our journey.... Continue Reading →

Dear diary. What a day. I hit my 10k steps target for the day that's for sure; Twycross zoo is immense. BB3 & BB4 learning to drive. The kids are having a great time but I'm missing my own bed badly. Were all looking forward to the national brewery centre tomorrow and need to get... Continue Reading →
Dear diary. Well we made it. YHA National forest is our base for the next two nights and I must say I am impressed with the place. We booked a private room as always but this time got the bonus of a double bed and two bunks for the kids rather than the standard four... Continue Reading →

Dear diary. It's been a long day to say the least. Ive had a day of friendship and family and now I am totally shattered and the house is a bomb site. Today I am blessed and exhausted! Goodnight friends.
I was gobsmacked and astonished to find out I had been nominated for this award by my new friend The Eclectic Contrarian.

Is it wrong to buy your man flowers? Bear looked very embarrassed when I handed him these yesterday and didn't really know what to say. They are beautiful though and I wanted to show him that I love him, maybe next time I should buy him some chocolate instead. Hey Ho! Posted in response to... Continue Reading →

#WOTD challenge. 13/8/19. You knit a web and stole my heart. Wove a blanket so tight around me that I could no more escape your spell. You captivated me and made me yours. You bring me the stars from the sky and hold the world for me in your hands. You give me everything I... Continue Reading →
Dear diary. Another long and fruitful day... The garden is almost complete and after three years it's about time too. We are finally able to walk from one end to the other without getting attacked by weeds and overgrown grass or falling over some random rubbish from the ex husbands hobbies. All the scrap metal...
