Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 215 – Mother’s Day UK


“I got to grow up with a mother who taught me to believe in me.”

Antonio Villaraigosa

Thank you Spidey, for a beautiful quote that resonates with me profoundly.

Yes, it is Mother’s Day here in the UK, and a day to really celebrate our wonderful mothers.

Well, as I tell the kids at school too, we should appreciate them every day, but today is the day you can go all out and show them just how much you love them, not necessarily by material things, but by how you behave.

Breakfast in bed, giving her a break, not arguing (my kids, are you listening?), tidying up, a surprise cup of tea, a handmade card.

Seriously, these things are what make a Mother’s Day special for me at least.

And I have a true legend to celebrate.

My mum.

Mum ❤

My mum is just amazing. She has been a nurturer, a friend, a support, a discipliner, an inspiration, a teacher, a taxi driver, a cook, a housekeeper, a most amazing Nanny, and just all round wonderful Mum.

I don’t have the words to tell her exactly how much she means to me, but she knows.

We aren’t always able to be together for Mother’s Day, due to distance, but our hearts are forever connected.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mum!

If I am only half the mother you have been, I’ll be bloody excellent!

I love you ❤

So… tell me, what do you have planned for Mother’s Day if you are celebrating?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 202 – Wave The Old Goodbye…


“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis

Well, here it is. The last Sunday of 2018.

Where did that year go? Seriously, it has flown by and I can’t quite believe it.

It’s been eventful in so many ways, with work and stress, family and stress, writing and stress… I think you get the gist of what I am saying. 2018 was filled with a whole lot of stress for me, but there were many good points too.

My dream for next year is to be able to take more time for me.

So I don’t fall into the stress potholes of life so easily.

So I can deal with work issues without worry.

So I can handle the inevitable ups and downs of family life calmly

So I can really work on this writing malarkey and fulfil one of my biggest dreams…

That’s my wish for you all too. More time for self care so you feel refreshed for your daily lives. ❤

So… tell me, what new dreams are you hoping to realise in 2019?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your New Year’s Celebration! Wishing you a prosperous 2019 ❤ 


Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 200

Wow Spidey! You’ve hit your bi-centenial post! Who’d have thought that a child’s figurine, found in a cross-legged position a few years ago would have led to 200 posts?!


When the ‘I’ is replaced by ‘we’ even ‘illness’ becomes ‘wellness’ – Anon

And what a lovely bit of wisdom you have found for this week! Quite apt for my family and I this week.

We have all been struck down by the dreaded Christmas lurgy… The kids are coughing, my nose is streaming, Hubby is the same. We are keeping the tissue business afloat, I think!

But we are not suffering alone. We are together. And pulling each other through this period of feeling bleurgh…

And isn’t it true, that if, when you are unwell and feeling miserable, a little company can really cheer you up!

Heres hoping we can shift this yuckiness before the Christmas week starts, so we can really enjoy our holidays!

So… tell me, any tried and tested remedies to share?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 198


“Christmas is forever, not for just one day. For loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away.”

Norman Wesley Brookes

Well thank you Spidey for a festive thought there!

I’m not Christian, but I do love Christmas. I thoroughly enjoy the festivities, The feeling of joy and happiness that tends to emanate from most corners of the land.

There is that feeling of peace. An acceptance. You are more likely to see a smile from a stranger (unless you are both eyeing the last turkey in the store, when goodwill might not win!) rather than a grimace.

But wouldn’t it be wonderful if that was the way the world was at all time?

Sure, we pack away our Christmas decorations and stop playing the cheesy Christmas songs, but we can still be giving and loving, every day, can’t we?

So… tell me, what is your favourite part of the festive season, that you would want to keep all year round?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤
