Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 217


“With the coming of spring, I am calm again.” Gustav Mahler

Thank you Spidey!

As you read this, I am sitting in the middle of a Center Parcs resort, surrounded by trees and nature and embracing all things that make the British Spring – Random sunshine, April showers, sleet, cold breezes – the lot.

But I am grateful. Happy to have this time in nature, with my family, embracing the world around us.

So… tell me, what do you lookforward to in Spring?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 216


“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.”
– Unknown

Another apt one Spidey!

I’m so excited! This weekend I have had a chance to spend time with my bff for the first time on a looooong while!

She is here with me, with her gorgeous two year old too and we have spend the weekend having a great catch up and giggles.

I love having this time with her, as we don’t get it often because we life quite far from each other.

Ours is a friendship that has blossomed over 25 years, since our first day at university, and there is not much that girl doesn’t know about me. She has been there for me through all sorts of ups and downs, and seen me in plenty of silly situations. Despite that, she’s my sister from another mister, and we love each other dearly.

So… tell me, do you have that someone who is so special to you, but not a partner, or family?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

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 197


“Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” – Sam Levenson

Thanks for that Spidey!

It’s all to easy, isn’t it? 

To keep putting things off because the time isn’t right.

But if we constantly time check, we are wasting precious time waiting, and checking, rather than doing.

A clock doesn’t wait for the next hour to chime, it just keeps going, chimes, then carries on to the next hour…

I have decided I need to stop my procrastination, and virtual clock watching. I have to get this edit/rewrite underway if I ever want to see my book being published!

So… tell me, what do know you just need to do, not procrastinate over?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤
