The Month of January

“January brings the snow, makes our feet and fingers glow” – Sara Coleridge 

Well it didn’t quite snow here in Southport, not like some parts of the North, but glow my fingers did as this has been one very chilly January!

I’m not quite sure where these last 31 days have gone, but I do know that it’s been a jam-packed month and I thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve been up to.

The Bug that Bugs You.

I absolutely hate being ill. I’m run down with a bug, a not so nice one known as tonsillitis!  After being sent home early from work on Saturday night, then again yesterday afternoon, I finally gave in this morning and went to see the doctor. He was not best impressed that I had waited to come and see him – I hate bothering people – and he was rather shocked at the size of my tonsils!

I don’t mean to complain as I know there are much worse things in life, but it’s not te get a little bit grumpy when you’re stuck inside all day.

My furry friend was not so impressed with me today!

I did have a good clean around the house and have finally started catching up on the world of blogging –it’s been a while – and I did manage a very short walk with the dogs. Against doctor’s (and mother’s) orders, but I couldn’t resist the look on the little faces!

What do you do when you’re feeling under the weather? Any suggestions on what I could try tomorrow?

Happy Monday Everyone!

Memories of a Sunday

After reading A Perfect Sunday on Sophie’s blog, I was inspired to have a go at jotting down some of my happy Sunday memories. Although Sunday isn’t my favourite day, over the years it’s definitely proved to be a very good day and has provided me with many unforgettable moments; some of which, I can share with you today.

The Perfect Sunday

I really enjoy reading through fellow bloggers’ posts. As well as finding many a pleasant read, I get ideas and feel encouraged to write my own posts. I say this a lot, but I DO love this world of blogging. Thanks for sharing, everyone! 😀


For me, Sunday is my favourite day of the week. It is time to recharge and a day for getting things done to make the next week run more smoothly. My perfect Sunday involves a slow pace of life and these are things I like to do…

1Lazy Sundays

I love a small lie in the morning and a lazy breakfast. I don’t like to lie in all morning as I don’t enjoy wasting the day… but an hour or so extra sleep than usual is much appreciated! My perfect Sunday breakfast would be some delicious homemade granola or a cheeky pan au chocolate and coffee. I like to eat breakfast in my pyjamas and then have a relaxing shower, probably involving washing my hair!


A walk on a Sunday is such a lovely thing to do. I love strolling with my boyfriend and exploring different parts of London…

The Next door Neighbour

via Daily Prompt: Neighbors

Having not posted in quite a while, I couldn’t have stumbled across a better word prompt to help me get back into the swing of things today.

Neighbours, the people next door, maybe someone with whom you create a beautiful friendship or the person you never see because they hide behind their twitching curtains. Whatever the situation, I’m sure we all have a story or two to share about are neighbours…

And The Rain Came Pouring Down

“It’s looking more like autumn than summer – we’ve swapped sandals for umbrellas.” – Laura Tobin, Good Morning Britain

Once again, I find myself wrapped up tight inside my winter coat and fighting a losing battle against strong autumnal-like (yes,that’s right!) winds. Gone have the sunshine and off-the-shoulder tops, as we’ve seen the return of thick jumpers. Even the scarves are back out!

Procrastinating or Daydreaming?

I only recently posted this, but felt the need to share with you again today as I have turned on the computer and gone straight to my Spanish tunes! Oh my, how I distract myself! Ha! But can you blame me when this song is al over the place at the moment?!

A little bit of me


Procrastinate – to postpone one task in favour of another which is perceived as being easier or more pleasurable but less important or urgent…  (

While my list of “to do” jobs is endless, the ideas in my head of what I actually “want to do” are never ending.
