    Holiday Views

    Afternoon Lovelies, Last night a lovely meal trying out a selection of delicious foods chosen for us and today I’m lounging, reading and listening to musical Theatre songs on Spotify.  Newsies and Catch Me If You Can are Tuesdays favourites. My view this morning is one to die for,  the pool, bay, mountains, rocks, hills …

    Lost Baggage

    Morning  Lovelies, A sleepless night by all and then flying away on holiday at dawn was always going to have it’s problems. Not having time to plan meant that packing was totally disorganised. I awoke to two suitcases being unpacked, re packed with the same dirty clothes whilst unwanted items were thrown in haste on …

    It’s Holiday Time!

    Morning lovelies, I’m preparing for our holiday to Minorca, leaving early tomorrow. I am currently packing for a holiday without a suitcase, washing clothes for people who are not here and tidying a house that is likely to be messed up quite drastically in the middle of the night! What the hell is going on in my …

    Mucked up Body Temperature

    Afternoon Lovelies, This sun is making me so sleepy! Today I am enjoying the heatwave missing from Edinburgh where I’ve been ensconced for the last two days. Last night as the mist came down at the airport, I sat stressed and shivering. Not only was my flight delayed but I was freezing. Every fifteen minutes I opened my suitcase to …

    Beautiful Bardolino

    Morning Lovelies, My husband and I have just come back from a fantastic fun packed week in glorious Italy. I had never been to Italy and I fell in love with the country. The countryside is beautiful, people friendly, food delicious, buildings and architecture interesting and of course the weather is reliably hot! We did have …

    Do You Tidy Before The Cleaner?

    Afternoon lovelies, Do you tidy up before the cleaner comes? I am struggling to explain to the men in my life that this is normal, in fact quite rational, sensible behaviour! They believe I am becoming obsessive and displaying OCD symptoms. I have tried explaining that there is no point paying for a cleaner to come to the …

    The New Forest Show

    Hello Lovelies, At the beginning of the Summer holidays I spent the week with my parents which included our annual visit to the New Forest Show at Brockenhurst, Hampshire. I have been going to the show ever since I was a child. Yep, a very long time. Back in the dark ages when I was very young, it …

    Wedding Anniversary Reflection

    Hello Lovelies, Well today my husband and I have been married for 26 years!  We got married at Brockenhurst on one of the hottest days of the century and had our Reception at Careys Manor.  It was a rare event where more water than wine was drunk! Twenty six years sounds forever when talking about marriage, particularly these days and yet time …

    Kitchen Transformation

    Hello Lovelies, for any teacher finally reaching the Summer Holiday is just bliss and finding that we are having a heat wave is a real result! The fact that the heatwave didn’t last long is frankly typical. Last year we had a big extension built on to the back of a house. We moved into our …
