Goodbye 2021

 I love to look back over my year and alongside my blog I always keep a journal. When I feel like nothing is going right or feel engulfed by life its great to look back with gratitude over what I have accomplished and experienced. This year being no different, very easy to fall into the negative mode with Covid still impacting on so much of our lives. 

So here's my highlights of a  year well spent between lockdowns and work pressures.

Making an effort to drive to see my friend and take regular walks along the seafront

Being thankful for vaccines that helped keep me safe whilst working through a pandemic

Staying home for my birthday and enjoying what our city has to offer.

Enjoying walks with Frankie

Getting Stan The Van
And taking him on lots of adventures

Spending time with friend's

2021 hasn't been so bad, we lost some precious people and our dear Frankie Boy

But we got through it, had some great times and ended the year with health and happiness and an appreciation for all that we do have.

Today I am back to work and quite enjoying the peace of my little home office. A day of organising, sorting and planning getting ready for the new year. 

Slow Mornings.

 One thing Rosie has bought to my life is slow quiet mornings. I am learning to embrace them.  This morning we were up at 6, she went out in...
