A year in pictures – Day 1

New Year's Day

I uhmed and ahed whether to head straight into another year of photos but I know there are people out there who like to read my ramblings! This will be my fourth year of daily photos without a day missed so far so that feels like quite an achievement!

This afternoon we headed down to the beach with some foolish cousins who thought going for a New Year’s Day swim was an excellent idea. It was… shall we say… bracing!

The year has started. Who knows what it will bring. We have happy events planned but I am pretty sure there is likely to be some sadness on the way. All I know is that we will face all things together. Much love to all my wonderful family x

A year in pictures – Day 361

Windy walkAnother lovely day spent with my cousin Tim and his family.

We took a short walk across the week – the wind was absolutely phenomenal and the sea had whipped up foam all along the shoreline!

Such a beautiful beach though, and it was nice to get out. I can’t take credit for this photo though – Tim took it!

A year in pictures – Day 360

26 December

As usual on Boxing Day we all went to Cobo Beach for the annual swim. This year I broke with tradition and decided to go in myself.

It was absolutely flipping freezing, but I have to admit I quite enjoyed it! I will not subject you of any horrendous pictures of me in a swimsuit though!

It was lovely to see the kids playing together on the beach. We love it in all weathers, regardless of whether it is warm and sunny or cold and windy!

A year in pictures – Day 302

Fort Houmet and friends

We took advantage of some reasonable weather and headed out for a walk across Vazon beach to Fort Houmet.

Such a nice afternoon spent with lovely friend. The kids played (mostly) nicely together and it meant that my friend Emma and I had the chance to catch up properly.

Friends, the beach and the physical health to go for a walk. Many blessings.

A year in pictures – Day 295

Windy walk

The weather has been pretty blustery today.

We had a lovely lunch at The Rockmount and then went for a windy walk across the beach. It was nice to get out even if we nearly got blown over and the kids ended up soaking wet!

A year in pictures – Day 278

Beach weather

The weather today has been absolutely gorgeous and we joined my sister and the kids on the beach to run the dog.

It was warm enough for the kids to take their socks and shows off and play in the water.

Even in October this island is beautiful, especially when the sun is shining.

A year in pictures – Day 268

25 September 2017Wow. Four years since Mum died.

Every single day I miss her. Every day I wonder how she would think I was doing as a mother myself. I think about her when I am talking to my kids, telling them off, cuddling them and especially when they make me laugh. I wish she had been around to see them grow up and I wish so much that she had been around to influence them and love them.

The photo of Mum was taken the day she died. The one of me and my sister was taken a year ago on the same beach. We stood in her footprints.

So often I feel that I walk in her shoes. As a Mum I hear her voice all the time both in my tone of voice but also what I say. Her influence was great, and still is.

Thank you Mum. I love, and miss you but most of all I am grateful for you. x

A year in pictures – Day 234

Beach weather?!We decided to go to the beach on the day that showed the best weather.

Unfortunately it wasn’t true and sat on the beach in bright glorious sunshine whilst big raindrops rained on us! Typical!

A year in pictures – Day 224

12 August 2017

This afternoon we went to Vazon to watch the sandracing. The Little Miss managed to fall asleep for a little while on my lap but she made a full recovery in time for an ice-cream on the roof of Vistas cafe!
