Home is where the heart is ðŸ’•ðŸ’•

With Nina and Jay getting their keys yesterday to their first home, it made me think of mine and Kevin’s first home and our subsequent ones too. We bought a 2 bedroom flat in Sutton, Surrey and Kevin moved in on 19th February 1982. I still lived in Essex at the time until we marriedContinue reading “Home is where the heart is ðŸ’•ðŸ’•”

Home sweet home

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind with so much going on and today sees a return to normality -sort of: a new normal? After a delightful outdoor meal last night where we all froze, this morning meant hugs and goodbyes to Andrew and Lis. Always hard but we’ve been so fortunate to seeContinue reading “Home sweet home”

A Day for all to celebrate

Woke up this morning to the news that another Royal baby was on their way, which was lovely as we were celebrating our own princess’s one! I can’t believe that Georgina is 24! Presents were opened, cards read and then we got ready for a little trip to London. The boys had arranged a goContinue reading “A Day for all to celebrate”

A London Wedding

Now this is a strange one: I’m blogging about a place I’ve not been to, with some people I have rarely met, but hopefully they can look on this as my wedding gift! Andrew and Lis primarily came over this month as Russ and Steph were getting married (spending time with us has been aContinue reading “A London Wedding”

GDPR, walking, negroni and unexpected time spent, then back down memory lane.

Had to attend an information session regarding GDPR, the beefed up Data Protection regulations coming into force on May 25th this year.

What I want to know is how the hell I am to do itContinue reading “GDPR, walking, negroni and unexpected time spent, then back down memory lane.”

It was amazing, the joy was palpable and I just loved it! Life is made for moments like this and everything was tip top! SomeContinue reading “A wonderful day!”

35 hours to go…..

Most of this week I have been planning and preparing as my son Andrew and his wife Lis are visiting from Australia. They are attending the wedding of their best man and a bridesmaid (who introduced them to each other ten years ago!) We are having an open house for family and friends on SundayContinue reading “35 hours to go…..”

The Greatest Showman…

It’s my Mum’s birthday today and my sister posted a newspaper cutting from 1958 when she won the title of Queen of Arbroath. She was chosen by Charlie Chaplin out of 50 entrants! After sending birthday wishes I had an early appointment for my biannual mammogram: never something I particularly look forward to, but hasContinue reading “The Greatest Showman…”
