Weekly Photo Challenge: Morning

“My 6am Blissful Morning Walk!”


The morning starts with Lillie whining to be let out her crate. I listen silently hoping my partner hears her and goes to her first. At the side of me, the snoring gets louder … Hmmm, he is playing me at my game! The cheek of it! So quietly I lay there in case he hears her. Still nothing but snoring from a dead weight laying next to me. I pretend to be roused by the puppy and that I’ve only just heard her in case she is truly just waking up.

I get dressed quickly, as soon as I’m up and out of bed, the tail wagging gets louder! It’s a race to be ready before the baby is woken up!

I go to her while her tail is wagging loudly against the side of her crate threatening to wake up the children. The caravan is small, there is room for her but for a 16-week puppy she takes up a quarter of the total floor space. Not that I don’t like that she is part of my family, I love her like a child but come on! There are five humans living in this tiny home for two weeks! Share the space!

Letting her out quietly is like a plane trying to take off without the noise of the engines! It’s impossible!

The crate is open … Tail wagging is furious … Middle child stretches loudly! Puppy is banging the sides of the crate creating a commotion like a rhino is in there … Baby sits up … “Hello, Lillie”.  I’m at the door, opening it quietly but that last bit that sticks where the catch doesn’t quite unclick without a loud noise and then … Teenage daughter in the awning is awake! “What time is it.” … “Go back to sleep baby girl … It’s only 6,” … I wait for the “What? Why did you wake me up?” In a millisecond, there it is!

Lillies lead is on, walking bag is filled with all the essentials needed, crossed over my shoulder and I’m gone … With a big smile on my face as I hear hubby say … “Morning Kids”.

Making a start!


Today saw a much more relaxed day now all the unpacking was done which gave me time to start laying out a draft of Chapter 1. Making a start on my book was really exciting and I’ve got to say it was quite liberating writing for the first time.

I’m basically getting a feel for the story, creating scenarios to come back to later in the book and creating the mystery need for a first chapter!

It’s exciting!

Can’t wait to write some more tomorrow!

It’s all about the packing up and moving on …

Exciting Times Ahead!

We are going home after a lovely two weeks in Cornwall with my family spending quality time together, but it is time to say goodbye until next year. It’s been a holiday of joy and disappointment, fun and happy times, eating too much food and drinking so much of the wrong things! For Mocha addicted me … Too much coffee! Finally … This holiday has brought me some time to make some decisions…

I can’t continue as I am, changes need to be made to save us all. The children need more time with Mummy making memories! I’ve realised my health is not good. For many years I’ve struggled and continued as I was but it’s time to get this sorted!

I’ve decided it’s time to focus on my businesses and create time to work on building my customer base. If I do this I will be able to build a better future for my family. This time last year I started a new business and I’m no nearer to being financially stable. I’ve dropped the ball! I need to build time into my routine to make the time. This is easy to do so won’t be a problem.

I’ve started a Blog! I’ve always wanted to do this so here I am! I’ve started already! I’m doing it!

I’ve decided to write a book. More info to follow but for now, it’s going to be so much fun! I’ve never written anything in my life!

Until later … Once I’m home!

Have a good day!

No abbreviations please!



I’ve never been good with writing letters or posts on Facebook, I tend to just babble. When writing it has always been full of mistakes, errors in punctuation and missing descriptive words.

My writing is basic without all the frills and fancy words. But I rarely abbreviate words. I may use the odd OMG! or Thanks … That is one thing that will always frustrate me. I sometimes see adults my age writing a post that is full of abbreviations like cud u, and cu l8r m8! Why? It takes more time and effort than to write the actual word!

It takes too much thinking time I don’t have!

Good old fashioned  writing for me please!


In the heat of the sun on a beach in Bude, while reading “The Sister”  by Louise Jenson, I had inspiration!


I want to write a book.

I’ve always wanted to be successful and write a novel or a children’s book but never had a clue where to start. I’ve never been a good writer so thought it would be a silly idea or a waste of time to even contemplate thinking about writing a story let alone a book!

Well now is the time to re-think and be inspired!

I’m pulling on my Positivity Pants!


Now where to start? ….



Why I am here …


So, I became a bit of a cliche and decided I wanted to become a writer. The word writer is actually a very scary word for me to say aloud as I don’t think I’m good at writing. I babble far too much and go off track and train of thought all the time.

I was sitting on a beach at the beginning of August, in Bude, Cornwall and had just finished reading a book, The Sister by Louise Jensen. Louise lived in my village a few years ago. Our paths have crossed at some point in our lives as her name is familiar.

Anyway, I sat listening to the waves crashing against the rocks wondering whether I could do the same. It is the first book she has written and is currently in the book charts now! So is this something I could do? Would I be able to make it as an author?

This is why I am here. I thought I should test the waters of writing by starting up a blog. Little paragraphs are not scary at all … Maybe I might be good and people may like what I write.


Only time will tell …
