Tidal

True to say that my energy ebbs and flows these days. Today I did both. And a lot more too.

Kansas

Sometimes I feel like I have lots of different sides, a human dodecahedron if you will. There is my old professional life when I used to advise multinationals and get involved in megadeals. There is my life as a wife and mother,  even though I shudder at the term. Domesticity is not a bad thing…

Wake up : fall asleep

You guys know I have Parkinson’s, don’t you?! Well, I tend to act as if I don’t have what I believe is considered to be quite a serious condition. I’ve never really allowed myself to be stopped or slowed down too much. In fact I take on lots of projects and ideas just to push…

Walls

How was your Bank Holiday? Mine was peaks and troughs but mainly peaks. After camping we came home, via the beach, and hugged bricks and mortar again. Not really of course although I suspect Other Half might have been tempted…then we were joined by a very good friend and her children for 24hrs of hilarity..but…

Big up to bigbury

It’s at the end of a winding road but the journey is worth it. The beach at Bigbury On Sea is awesome in the true sense of the word. And a pub! That sells pretty baguettes! No wonder we stayed all day. Ouch!

Beached

A sunny day in Brixham. Not much to say except I had lots of time to chat with the boys, increasingly interesting. They are lovely. And here are some pictures taken at the beach in a fit of artyness and then messed around with. I am increasingly interested in pattern and printing – must have…

Beach life

A day at the beach. Just me and the boys. Lots of sand, sea and salt. Then the bus ride home and playing with bubbles. I won’t lie, there were some hairy moments but overall it was lovely. The boys had a blast, got completely filthy and played really well together. Result.

Bump

So soon, so soon. One last hurrah at Goodrington, one blast at soft play and we are heading back to normality, housework and shoes. We are back soon but it’s still a wrench leaving beautiful Brixham in the blazing sun. Hard to believe we’ve been there less than a year, I feel so settled. I’ve…

Little chapel on the (welsh) prairie

Well, it didn’t rain, the boys are natural beachbums, wineboxes are much smaller than I remember them and so long as you look hard enough you can find stitchy goodness everywhere. We are back from Mwnt near Cardigan in Wales, staying with a girlfriend and her daughter in a MASSIVE caravan. I haven’t been in…

Sandy and salty

Four days away with my boys. Here they are Proper post tomorrow. The wine is calling me…
