Today, my little boy turned 21. We spent some quality time together and went for a nice meal. It’s strange to see our children grow into adults, making their way in this big bad world. All we can do as parents is to guide, be good role models, be good listeners and allow them toContinue reading “Jan 11th… Family….”
An earlier post today, but I’m not going to say ‘early morning post’ for obvious reasons. Anyway, this was my view when I took our 4 legged children for a walk this morning. Some of you may have been aware that we were looking to sell our house. We had no luck, but our agentsContinue reading “Jan 10th – Appreciation”
Alfie, our 1 year Large Munsterlander is incredibly enthusiastic and determined. Here he is on beach earlier digging like his life depended on it. We will never know why, but that isn’t the point, he is happy in his endeavour, and driven to complete his goal (whatever that was). If you have a clear goalContinue reading “Jan 9th….. Determination”
Today’s image is of some bulbs starting to poke up through the soil, giving us all optimism of warmer days ahead. Nature’s cycle is pretty cool, and as things die off in the winter months, with nights getting darker and colder we know that there are better times ahead. I believe life is pretty similarContinue reading “Jan 8th….. Signs of spring?”
We attended the funeral of a dear friends father today, which led to today’s photo and post. There’s nothing more certain in our crazy world than death, we just don’t know when it will occur, so why not make the most of every day. The poignant eulogy at today’s service was also inspiring. As oneContinue reading “Jan 7th – One thing is certain……”
We travelled back from Cornwall earlier, after a house hunting expedition, and came across Bodmin Moor. With rain lashing down, gulls swimming in puddles and wild horses grazing, it made me consider how lucky ‘most’ humans are to have shelter, especially in the winter. However, the animals didn’t seem unhappy, so how come people getContinue reading “Jan 6th – Desolate”
Being by the sea, even in January, is so peaceful. Our 4 legged children met 2 of their Cornish cousins for a great run on the beach. Some beaches are closed to dogs in the summer, which I get for the popular ends, but surely some of the quieter parts could be used?
We came across this art whilst wandering through Perranporth, Cornwall. It’s made completely of rubbish collected from the beach. When you next visit a beach take a bag and do a little beach clean. I agree, we shouldn’t need to, but if everyone does a little the problem gets manageable.
To retire, or not to retire – That was the question. Many folk I spoke to asked “Won’t you be bored? What will you do with your time?” Well, like most things ‘if you fail to plan you plan to fail’. I have many hobbies and interests, I sometimes wonder how I managed to fitContinue reading “3rd Jan”
Back to work day for some (thankfully not me). Going back to work after a break can be stressful, not helped by the time of year when we generally have dark skies, which led me to today’s photo. What do you see? Do you see dark skies, bad weather, desolate landscapes Or Do you seeContinue reading “2nd Jan,2020”
