Like Mother, Like Daughter and Weekend Catch Up

P was here this weekend and I found myself doing something I’ve been trying to hold off. I’m turning into my Mother.

My mother’s a great lady. To say she’s colourful’s an understatement. Always dressed in colour preferably from her autumn winter colours and is hardly every quiet. I’ve noticed there are something subconsciously I think are just family traits I do. I can be a ball of energy like my Mum that some people find uncomfortable. Or I can be the complete opposite and grumpy like my Dad. I’m making efforts not be grumpy. Reflecting on actions and changing them later in similar situations. 

I’m mostly mute at home, only speaking to the cats. When P’s here, I’m almost non stop talking to the point I have to tell myself to shut up. That’s only part Continue reading “Like Mother, Like Daughter and Weekend Catch Up”

Cirque Du Soleil, Breaking Habits And A Pink Moon

Happy May!

I hope you’re had a great May Day and having a great week so far!

Weekend Friday Favourites

He’s a cat that likes things on his terms so if you snuggle up to him, fall asleep rather than the other way round it’s an honour. His brother, Mr D takes any extra body heat he can get so he’s not too fussed if you snuggle up, which in its own way is an honour. That both trust you enough to let you snuggle up, tickle tummies while they sleep.Duck Barcelona Zoo

Weekend Friday Favourites is back after a little hiatus. I actually started this Weekend Friday Favourites 3 Continue reading “Weekend Friday Favourites”

Late Winter, Whispers of Spring

There’s a faintest whisper of Spring. A few trees and flowers are starting getting dressed in their greens and florals. I can’t want for Spring to officially start in 3 weeks. I appreciate coats, scarves, jumpers and multiple layers keeping me warm but I can’t wait to feel warm without being huddled under so many layers. If the weather app’s right, we’ve got a few more days of cold here before someone cranks the thermostat up enough to maybe remove one layer until next winter. 

I wanted to stop by earlier in the week for a little more detailed catch up however I’ve been extra tired this week. I decided to continue indoor climbing lessons after my Continue reading “Late Winter, Whispers of Spring”
