Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 126


“I’m so tired, my tired is tired.” – Anon

Seriously, Spidey, you hit the nail on the head with this one!

Currently writing this with matchsticks holding my eyes open… (not really, but that’s how tired I am!)

I have been running on adrenaline and my second wind the last few weeks, but Saturday morning, it really hit me!

I had to get up a little earlier to get the grocery shopping done, because I had a nail appointment…

All important stuff. We need food. I need nice nails!


I would usually go on a Thursday evening after school but we have a wedding this weekend in Birmingham, a three-hour drive away. So I will be packing stuff on Thursday night.

To avoid getting up at 5 am to get ready and drive there on Saturday morning, we have to go to Birmingham on Friday night, in the traffic, straight after I finish school for the year.

At least I get to stay with my parents for one night, but seriously, I will be shattered!

But I am falling asleep at the thought of the weekend already!

It’s not that I don’t want to go to the wedding. I love a good get together, but this is not a function from my side of the family, it is a distant relative from the in-law’s side, so forgive me if my heart isn’t in it this time!

And yes, my six-week school break is there, languishing ahead of me, but will I be laying across a Chaise for the whole time, doing NOTHING?

Heck no!

The first week, I will be back in school, clearing the classroom and preparing for the next academic year!

Then the week days are relatively clear, but every weekend, we already have invitations to functions!

I will have to draw the line somewhere!

So, I shall attempt to have a restful Sunday, so I feel slightly more sprightly for the last few days of term with my darling kids!!!

Have a great Sunday and a wonderful week, Peeps!



Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 125


“Let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.” – Connor Franta

What a beautiful quote Spidey found to ponder upon today!

It’s amazing what a simple smile can do.

A random smile from even a stranger can light up a dark moment for you.

To be greeted with a smile makes for a more positive start to each day.

I smile.


It gets commented on a lot too.

I am known for my positivity wherever I go.

When I was at university, I was described as ” That smiley, curly haired girl from Birmingham.”

One of my previous employers said to me that it was a pleasure to have me around as he could guarantee a smile whenever he saw me.

I’m not talking about sneers or sarcastic smiles, or cheesy grins, just genuine smiles.

And I smile pretty much all the time. It’s just me. It makes me who I am. It makes me feel happier in myself, and makes me look at all situations with a more positive eye.

Of course, there are times smiles are not appropriate, and I know that too.

You won’t find me grinning inanely at a funeral or at some sad or bad news.

But otherwise, it is there, more or less permanently.

Of course, there are always those who can’t stand a happy face! (Why ever not? Surely it’s good to smile!)

But I refuse to allow them to drag me down to their miserable depths!

Don’t they know how many facial muscles I am exercising every time I smile?! It’s my daily workout!

Have a Smiley, happy Sunday Peeps!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 124


“Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in your heart.” – Winnie The Pooh

Spidey found this one, and I felt it to be a most apt quote from one of my favourite individuals, that cuddly wuddly teddy all stuffed with fluff, Winnie The Pooh!

I call my son Lil Man for a reason.

He’s little, so that takes care of the ‘Lil’ part and he’s also very mature in some ways, hence the ‘Man’ part!

But besides being quite a grown up young man, he is still a child, and I hope to preserve that childish innocence for as long as I can.

On this weekend, which has become his birthday weekend, Pooh Bear’s quote rings more true than ever. Both Lil Man, and Lil Princess may be growing up but they do indeed take up a HUGE part of this mummy’s heart!

And they will reside there forever!

I’m off to finish decorating his cake now, so I bid you all a fond farewell!

Have a wonderful Sunday Peeps!




Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 123

“If you stumble, make it part of the dance.” – Anon

Perusing Google and the inspirational sayings it offered, Spidey and I came across this one.

What a great way to think!

None of us is perfect.

And in a world where ‘perfection’ is continually forced upon us, be it celebs and their (artificially enhanced) looks, or lifestyles, or even down to the perfect fruit and veg we buy in the stores, it is easy to feel as if you are imperfect.

But just a little holler out there to you all,

Perfect is Boring!!!

It’s much more of an interesting journey we travel if we make the odd mistake or wrong decision. It shouldn’t be ruled out or forgotten.

Whatever slip up is made contributes to the person you are going to become.

Embrace your mistakes.

Accept them, and move on.

Learn from them.

Make them part of your story, don’t edit them out of your life’s manuscript.

Now go on and have a perfectly imperfect Sunday my dear Peeps!


Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 122 – Happy Father’s Day


“A Father is someone you look up to, no matter how tall you grow.” – Anon

What a great saying! Thanks, Spidey!

I know that not everyone has an agreeable relationship with their family, but I do and have been blessed with wonderful parents.

And the line above is something that rings true for me and my brother when applied to my Pops, most definitely!

My brother towers above our Pops, yet I know that for him (and me) Pops will be one person on a pedestal who we look up to forever.

A kind, caring, considerate, loving person… who is there for us all, no matter what. Someone who we can only aspire to be like… If we only have half his qualities, we would be blessed with being great human beings!

So, Happy Fathers Day to my Pops.

Happy Fathers day to all daddies, and those who are like daddies too!!!!!!

Happy Sunday Peeps!
