Alphabet Project - S

This week my S was an easy choice. My S is for...

Soul mate

This is my hubby who really is my soul mate.

He is my best friend, my lover, my rock, he is my everything. I know that I can always depend on him to be there. He has always been so supportive, but even more so during the past 3 months. He has held me up and helped stopped me drowning in depression and this is something which he continues to do. I really would be lost without him. We are never apart for long and rarely go out without each other.

My hubby, James, is quite literally my other half, without him I am incomplete.

I love you x

As always I am joining in with the lovely PODcast Alphabet Project and Black and White Project.

Word of the Week - 19th September 2014

There is only one word which has dominated this week. That word is...


My Joseph turns ten today. As you can imagine any birthday is an exciting time but when you are turning ten it is just that bit more exciting. Going from single figures to double figures is such a huge thing for any child.

As Joseph's mum, I cannot quite believe that my son is turning ten. How did that happen? Where did the last ten years go?

I am so proud of the boy that Joseph is. He dotes on his brother and sister and despite being too old now for kisses he still gives great cuddles. He really is growing up way too quickly for my liking. It is thanks to Joseph that I am where I am today. He brought me back home and made me live my life differently. Before Joseph I was a bit of a tearaway living abroad. But that all changed the day I found out that I was pregnant. I had someone else to put before me. He made me live for something. He gave me my life back, a reason to live. When he is older I will tell him how much he did for me, I will always be so thankful for him.

We have got a busy birthday weekend planned. Today is Joseph's evening. He has asked for a pizza tea and a board game night. We are not only celebrating Joseph's birthday but also our nephew, the twins Godfathers 21st birthday on Saturday and having a family meal out for Joseph's on the Sunday.

What word would sum up your week?

As always I am sharing my word of the week with the lovely Jocelyn at The Reading Residence.

How Does Your Garden Grow - Week 37

Last weekend we decided to go for a walk around Normanby Hall. I love seeing how the gardens and grounds change with the seasons. During this visit I noticed a real autumnal feeling about the place. Leaves are turning brown and starting to fall. The colours are starting to change however there are still great bursts of colour. This week I thought that I would share some of the beautiful sights that Normanby Hall has to offer its visitors.

As always I am sharing my How Does Your Garden Grow Post with the lovely Annie at Manneskjur.
