Spideyโ€™s Serene Sunday โ€“ Part 339 โ€“ Appreciated


“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Maya Angelou

Thanks, Spidey, for this lovely quote.

It really hit home, especially after my birthday, on Friday.

As it has done, over the last few years, my birthday fell on a school day, and the beginning of the academic year.

This year was no different.

I had a day filled with home visits to some of my new students, before I was able to go home.

But, what made my day so special, was how those around me, made me feel. My whole team were so wonderful, and generous. I was spoilt with gifts and cards. Even one of the parents we visited, gave me a card. Children and parents from school who saw me, and were aware, wished me a happy birthday.

Yes, I stayed a little later than I had planned, but I left school feeling so loved.

Then I got home, and the feeling was doubled, no tripled. More love, presents and happiness from them.

That day, I went to sleep filled with the feeling of being appreciated, more than I ever thought I was.

It truly will be a birthday that will stick in my heart forever.

So, what about you? Share a moment or a day that you won’t ever forget, because of how you were made to feel?


Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

Happy Birthday, Me! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ‚ Bargain Book Alert!

It’s that certain day of the year, for me, today, Peeps!

Another year older, not sure I’m wiser, though!

My day will be filled with, school, as usual, and some quality time with my hubby and kids, and Sonu Singh, of course!

If you weren’t aware, a certain book is on offer, until the end of today, so, if you are on the .com or .co.uk side of the ‘Zon’, you could pick up Marriage Unarranged for a bargain 99p/c!


Anyway, I’d consider it a birthday gift, from you, if you were to buy it, or, share the offer to others!

Have a wonderful day!

I’m off to school now!

Spideyโ€™s Serene Sunday โ€“ Part 311 โ€“ Teenager


โ€œA mother’s treasure is her daughter.โ€

โ€” Catherine Pulsifer

Thank you Spidey, for finding such a lovely quote.

Yesterday, was Lil Princess’s birthday. My daughter turned teenager.

I am quite overwhelmed, you know, because, firstly, I am now a mother to two teenagers. So I feel old!

But mainly, because I don’t know where the last thirteen years disappeared to. It only feels like the other day that she arrived, kicking and screaming, into the world, and now, she’s nearly a woman!

When people say, ‘make the most of those young years’, they are right. At the time, you may be finding it hard to deal with young children, and you wish away the years where they won’t sleep, keep crying, asking “Why?”, follow you everywhere, even the loo.

But, honestly, you will suddenly find yourself here, like me, with the kids who are full of hormones, and they don’t actually want to be anywhere near you, (unless they want something, in which case they can be really sweel!), they don’t really talk to you, their rooms start to smell, because they live in mini pigstys, no matter how much you try to keep them tidy…

Then, the flip side, when they get older, they become mini friends. The conversations you can have with them, the jokes you can share, and, with my girl anyway, the advice and tips on hair, clothes and make-up! (Mind you, I really don’t care about those things, but if I ask her for help, she’s in her element!)

We enjoy music together, silly Netflix films and series. Baking together in the kitchen, girlie chats about life.

It’s all part of the joys of being a mother, you know, and though I miss my little squidgy baby, I have a beautiful young lady by my side, now, and she will always be my baby…

Happy Birthday, Lil Princess ๐Ÿ’œ
