I am, Word of the Week.

I am looking back at what I have been up to over the last few weeks and it gives me a sense of accomplishment. I’ve been feeling rather overwhelmed by day to day life that the important things have gone unnoticed. Just when I think I’ve been so disorganised and not finished tasks or jobs, I Look back at my photos and see my recent achievements and think wow! I am good enough!

The last two weeks have again gone past in a whirl wind and although I have aimed to do this post every week it seems that again life has gone so fast and I’m on week two again.

I have had  an amazing few weeks and feel very inspired by every one around me so thank you very much! So therefore my words of the week are I am!


I am Confident, After a very successful visit to the world travel market where I met some new and old blogging friends and educated myself on some great new destinations, I feel more confident about my blog and where its hopefully going. I am also thankful to those that have helped me get off to a good start.



I am excited! The christmas lights are up all around London and it always has a great feel to it, So I am looking forward to the christmas season.

I am Proud! My eldest had turned 16 and what a lovely boy he has turned out to be. The years have  flown past and I am so proud to be his Mum. We celebrated by going to the Cereal Killer cafe in Brick lane and had a great family day out.

I am Thankful

I am Comfortable. The house is being painted and we have rooms looking to be finished soon. There is nothing better than snuggling up on the sofa with my two partners in crime Yoda and Dolly. This is my old boy Yoda pinching my favourite spot.

I am blessed! Harry Had the opportunity to appear on the one show whilst on stage  for children in need. The storys of these children are very poignant and I am blessed and lucky to have such a loving and healthy family.
