‘I do…’ not have a clue what I’m doing! Picture Perfect.

I’ll be honest with you, initially, we didn’t want a photographer. Why? Because everyone has a phone with a camera these days; everyone is a photographer we thought (we would find out later we were wrong). We felt that with our small budget, a photographer was a luxury that wasn’t needed. However, the more wedding … Continue reading ‘I do…’ not have a clue what I’m doing! Picture Perfect.

‘I do…’ not have a clue what I’m doing! Music Maestro Please.

So after sorting out the venue, the legalities, THE dress and sorting the bridesmaids everything else should sort itself out right? RIGHT? WRONG! All the other things, that at the time seem like little things, have to be right to make the day come together (well they had to be for me). There are so … Continue reading ‘I do…’ not have a clue what I’m doing! Music Maestro Please.

Summer; memories waiting to happen!

Summer is such an important time for me.

This summer wasn't going to be any different, … Continue reading Summer; memories waiting to happen!

Cancer; so much more than just a word!

So, my ‘Race for Life’ is THIS Sunday and I can’t wait. Sounds funny doesn’t it? Someone who usually finds it incredibly difficult to find motivation to do any exercise at all, is excited about running 5K?

We’re better together; Dementia Awareness Week

I cherish my memories; I love it when I recognise a smell, a face, a song and when I suddenly get a thought that reminds me of someone; I love it.

When is enough, enough?

As I  continue on my blogging journey, I find myself having the same debate with myself (yes, with myself) time and time again; is being on your phone a lot, really that bad?
