Day 55

Me and my sister

Today I had a cold and windy walk with my sister and all the kids.

We were trying to get a photo with one of the kids swinging from the rope swing in the background. We didn’t succeed and I just took this photo of me and Louise which makes me smile.

A year in pictures – Day 288


Today my sister and cousin Matthew took part of a fabulously ridiculous event called an otillo (not sure how to put the funny little dots above the ‘o’s though!)

They started at one end of the west coast of the island down at Pleinmont and ran and swam a route around the coast right up to Pembroke. Each pair has to be tied together during the swim legs by a 10m rope. It was hilarious to see all these people in wetsuits and swimming hats running along the road with their floats bobbing along on their hips. They ran a total distance of 21km and swam about 4km. Crazy.

Louise and Matthew did brilliantly and they came third overall for the full distance which was fantastic. I was really proud of them and it was a fantastically organised event. Well done everyone!

A year in pictures – Day 251

8 September 2017

My last Friday at work before my hours change and I start working 5 days a week.

I was hoping for a glorious sunny day instead it was raining and miserable but we made the most of it and went out with my sister and the dog for a walk.

We took the opportunity to pick blackberries in the rain. Despite the rain we had a lovely time. I hope that we will always try to be happy even when things don’t work out exactly the way we wish.

A year in pictures – Day 226


As he went to bed this evening I asked The Mister what the best bit was about today.

He sleepily muttered ‘Auntie Louise picking me up from holiday club’.

She picked them up, the children played (mostly) nicely together and they had a lovely time. Thanks little sis for being a fabulous aunt.

A year in pictures – Day 166


I had such a lovely evening with my sister yesterday. We walked and talked and it was warm and gorgeous and we had a proper chance to catch up without kids!

She really is my rock. Love you smell-bags x

London Marathon heroes

I am so proud of my sister and brother-in-law today.

They ran the London Marathon in a time of 3 hours and 36 minutes. I think they are complete heroes and Philip did a brilliant job of pacing and supporting Louise but I especially think my sister is a legend. She has had a calf injury and has been worried she wouldn’t finish. At about 10 miles in her calf went pop and she took painkillers, walked a bit and then managed to finish the job.

My sister is rock hard. Fact.

Beach beauty

This evening I managed to squeeze in a quick walk with my sister. An absolutely beautiful evening down at Vazon beach.

A quick tramp across the beach and a catch-up with my lovely sister and her nutty dog. Evenings don’t get better than that.

A year in pictures – Day 81

Emergency suppliesOur poor lovely childminder was off sick with a bug today and we had to try and cobble together some childcare.

Thank goodness my lovely sister and cousin were able to help us out.

This week has been pretty ropey at work and it made me smile so much to find a bottle of wine stashed in The Little Miss’ rucksack with the note ‘thought you might need this later on’. Legend.

A year in pictures – Day 67

International Women's DayHappy Intentional Women’s Day!!

Here is a throw back photo to January for three of the most important females currently in my life.

I was going to post a picture of my Mum but to be honest it seemed more appropriate to have this picture… this what is happening right here, right now.

I couldn’t have managed over the last few years without my amazing sister Louise. She is hugely inspirational. She is a brilliant Mum, runs a charity that changes the lives of thousands of people and she is really bloody determined when she sets her mind to something.

Also in this picture are my niece and my daughter. Cut from the same cloth they wilful, stubborn and determined and the pair of them are absolutely hilarious! They are wonderful, kind girls who love each other desperately and make us laugh, and cry in frustration, in equal measure.

Whilst at times I complain about how challenging The Little Miss can be, I would not have her any other way. I have seen this meme floating around Facebook and I love it because it is true.

“Here’s to strong women.
May we know them.
May we be them.
May we raise them.”

A year in pictures – Day 20


Another Friday off work and another lovely walk around the coast with my sister, Ralph the dog and The Little Miss.

It was such a beautiful day but the air was chilly. I do think though that it would be possible for this to be the middle of summer because it is so sunny!
