And whilst we were looking we fell in love…….with the Scottish Highlands!
I would describe my recent trip to the Scottish Highlands as probably the icing on the cake of all the places I have visited in the past two years! Hand on my heart I have never felt so connected to a place ever before!

In this mad crazy rollercoaster of a life I have very recently made two quite major decisions! One was to start a business, just as some extra income alongside my full-time job, so that I can perhaps indulge in a few luxuries as I’m getting older and the other was to climb a mountain, something I had never thought about or prepared for or even really ever wanted to do but something that has now become quite significant in my life!

Over the last few years I have suffered with Rosacea! It’s not pleasant let me tell you, thankfully due to a lot of research about what triggers it I have managed to get it under control, that’s not to say that I don’t occasionally have a flare up, this can depend on what I’ve eaten and also my stress levels, (another reason why I have done so much self-work, to learn how to manage my stress) so I kind of know myself pretty well, I also know my skin and what effects it and what it doesn’t like so finding a skin care range that my skin loves at an affordable price has been a challenge!

Or is Romance really dead?
Is your love really measured by the size of your….. Valentine’s bouquet? (Now now, keep it clean!) Does this really prove your love for someone? Continue reading “As Valentine’s Day Approaches are you in the mood for love?”
When, all of a sudden it’s Christmas everywhere you look, even though it’s only November! Don’t get me wrong I love Christmas, just not until at least until December! Bah Humbug! You may be thinking but come on it seems to get earlier every year and personally advertising Christmas before we’ve even had Halloween I think is a little over the top! For all those who can’t wait to put the tree up by the end of October……. I’m not judging it’s just a little too early for my liking!
But hey each to their own!

My very first travel post! Please be kind!
The 5.00am alarm signifies the start of this adventure and excitement wins over the tiredness as we get ready to hit the road for the 5-hour drive to “The Pennines” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennine_Way and our very first hiking trip! A Birthday treat and although I knew we were heading to “The Pennines” I had no idea whereabouts in the Pennines we were going, my other half loves organising surprises!

This is what my daughter lovingly referred to me as the other day……… and I guess she’s right!
When I was younger during my late 20’s probably up to my early 40’s I wanted to be part of the action, the social scene so to speak, don’t get me wrong I was never a wild party animal but I loved socialising and having a busy fast paced life, I definitely did my fair share of nights out and girls holidays but I wasn’t a raver of any description! I guess back in my 20’s I needed to be amongst the hustle bustle of life and my own company in those days wasn’t very appealing, I always felt that I needed to have something planned to keep my anxious mind occupied, I thought I would always want to live in a town where everything was on hand and there was always be someone close by if I needed them and whilst I was a single mum constantly fighting for survival this suited me just fine!
