Like I said …… !!!!!

What’s Going On?

Snow Rothwell Leeds

My London Town

This time last year I was enjoying the sun in the beautiful lush green parks of London, playing with the kids and strolling hand in hand with my husband.

Need I say more!!

Wake up, wake up … we’re leaving!

Yesterday, I enjoyed a chat with a fellow Twitterer @CupecoyStMartin (the only place I want to be right now) telling me “It’s time to wake up and get on” after the beautiful festive season.  How right they were!

I was getting lazy and rooted to the spot, and just a little too comfortable in my nest. The weather is awful outside, and my mind is wandering as usual to the sunnier climbs of the Caribbean.

I always need the sun to motivate me to do anything, and I mean anything.

Wet Wet Christmas

It’s twice as hard because the sun seems to have no intention of visiting us here in London any time soon.

So here I am, doing as I’m told and putting fingers to keyboard and saying bye-bye this wonderful festive season and preparing to remove all the twinkling Christmas decorations and saying, Hi! to this fabulous New Year to come.

The Caribbean is still calling – I hear it loud and clear!

Big Mac, large fries and a box of 6 McNuggets please!

My business plans, hopes, dreams and niche ideas are taking over my life.  I feel I have no time for myself but manage to spare the little breathing space I have left for my active family.

It is annoying, exhausting and totally frustrating not getting the answers or outcomes you hope for considering the amount of effort put in.  I continually have visions of the beaches of Anguilla peppering my thoughts to keep me motivated … as in “one day, one day!!!”  I am plagued with decisions and focused on making the right ones with the limited finances to fund the project.

But, d’you know what?

I’M LOVIN’ IT!!!

Control You? …. Never!!

I’m up and about and feeling just a little better, shame the Vicks Vapour Rub still has to continue as an unfortunate companion.

My husband has been a treasure, fumbling around in the kitchen, starving himself up to the point when he has no choice but to attempt to feed himself.  His efforts were actually very tasty, even though I suffered with continuous questions such as, “how do I do this?” and “how do I do that?”  It was all worth it.

If I’m honest, I am a bit of a control freak and do like things done my way and done by ME, even though I know it’s to my benefit to be done for me.  I admit it, I know. I’m annoying!  At least I admit it, unlike most.

Now go and make me a cup of tea!

St Elsewhere

I’m what’s called under the weather today.  What a strange expression!  I’m feeling hot and cold at the same time, my head is thumping, my eyes are warm with vision changing from foggy to blurred at a moments notice.  I’m irritable and every voice in the house sounds ten times louder than it did yesterday.

I don’t feel under the weather, I feel I am slap bang in the middle of it.  Every miserable, wet, grey cold, damp, dark, windy not forgetting cloudy inch of it. The Caribbean couldn’t be shouting any louder if it tried today, much less calling!

Friends and family preoccupied

A busy time has now passed, I hope.  I have played nurse, shoulder to cry on, audience participant, chauffeur, entrepreneur, decision maker, appeaser, ATM and of course MUM, all in the last few days.

All events were dealt with and have hopeful outcomes, I am just waiting for others to come to fruition, in my favour of course.  All in all I feel fully accomplished.

There’s only one thing for it.  Totally feet up and TV time tomorrow to make up for it all.

In my head I will be here … Caribbean calling me once again!
