Moody day

Today I was tired, tearful and slightly hungover.

I struggled all day and The Little Mister has been incredibly difficult. He has been rude and oppositional and just hard to manage and I have struggled because I am not at top of my game.

I cried in church, cried in the car and cried at home.

My friend Emma asked me and the kids out for a walk around the headland. It was just what I needed; blustery and blowy and a bit of a reflection of my mood but I felt much better when I returned.

I am very grateful for friends who hold me up when I am feeling down and who will walk alongside me when I am struggling.

Ahhhh I’m not really sure I am ready to do a whole year of photos again, but somehow I am reluctant to stop!

A nice walk today after a fab evening with plenty of wine. The fresh air certainly helped the heavy head!

Day 365

New Year's Eve

This pretty sums up my year. We spent it with awesome friends and their equally awesome children. We fed the small people early in the evening and then settled them down in pajamas in front of the TV whilst we ordered a Chinese take-away.

No matter what as been going on over the year I have grown to appreciate the value of my friends nnd family more than ever.

I pray that we will all have a happy and peaceful New Year and that whatever it might bring we are able to be kinds and generous to each others as well as to ourselves.

Day 362

Beach walks

These gorgeous, mild December days are perfect for beach visits and walks.

We had another lovely walk across Vazon with Emma and the kids. Unfortunately the children were less compliant in having their photos taken!

Day 361

Mum's grave

This evening we went to the house of one of Edward’s school friends. The kids ran riot whilst we drank fizz and ate nibbles. It was an awesome evening.

We walked up there so we could have a few drinks and knowing the kids would be tired we took the trolley with us. It is easier than listening to the whinging on the way!

We also stopped to visit my Mum’s grave on the way there – it is such a beautiful view from the cemetery – even a sea view!

Day 355

Christmas jumpers

Thank goodness we have made it to the end of term. Tired children and tired children and we are all ready for Christmas and a break.

After school we went to my friends house where the kids played, we fed them carbs and we watched a film and chilled out.

Good friends with excellent taste as we have matching Christmas jumpers, although we bought them completely independently!

Day 305

Friends

Today has been an awesome day as our friend Tom and Anne and their three boys came up from Stockton-on-Tees for the day.

We met them at the railway station and then went to the Camera Obscura. It was a brilliant tourist attraction and first of all we went all the way to the top to see the camera obscura and take photos from the roof of the building. There are also loads of brilliant optical illusions and visual tricks through the rest of the building. We spent a very happy couple of hours in there.

We then walked to the Museum of Scotland again and spent a bit of time in there before going to a freezing cold park and ending up in a pub for a drink. We had booked a meal at Vittoria on the Bridge which was a fantastic restaurant.

It was so lovely to see these friends again – we haven’t seen them for about 15 months and yet we picked up exactly where we left off. We are fortunate to have friends that we are able to do this with. Safe travels and see you soon x

Day 280

Autumn walk

After yesterdays rainy weather today has been absolutely glorious.

We went for a fab lunch at friend’s house and then had a quick walk across the beach with their dog Penny. It was good to get out in the lovely Autumn sunshine. A lovely weekend but back to work tomorrow.

Beach time

We are still making the most of some nice bits of the weather. The kids spent a happy few hours on the beach including some time surfing. We are fortunate to be so near such beautiful clean beaches and to have such nice friends to spend time with.

Day 246

Special... effects

Oops Emma and I have discovered that if you WhatsApp facetime each other then there are lots of ridiculous effects. The children thought it was hilarious.
