{Sharing my weekend with Karen over at Pumpkin Sunrise, always such a delightful place to visit}

This weekend was much needed and with an extra day {today} tagged on, too! That extra day makes all the difference, every weekend should have one.

We haven’t really done a great deal, staying around the house mostly and walking locally with Trevor. We do live close to a stunning park {I am pretty sure I have mentioned that before} for which I am so grateful. It’s a real dog walkers park and we meet all kinds of lovely creatures {and their people}. I particularly love the park in autumn, I cannot wait for all the trees to turn from green to shades of orange and brown, what a delight it is!


My son got his exams results last Thursday and he has done really well, I am so proud I could burst. He is really happy and excited about starting college next month. How wonderful it is to be 16, all your life ahead of you and a million new experiences to discover…


I hope your weekend has been a good one and I wish you a very lovely week.

Until next time…





L a t e l y…there has been much talk of exams in our house. Little niggles of worry worming their way into conversations. I offer soothing words and help (I think I would be more of a hindrance though) and they are acknowledged and appreciated.

School has suddenly become a little more serious and I know how well my boy wants to do. He has a plan you see (this amazes me, as I still don’t really know what I want to be) and it involves music and college and university…it sounds wonderful.

But, like all plans, in between the place you are and the place you want to be, there are always a few obstacles. However, this not being my plan, it is so hard to help. I can’t do the studying, take the exams; I can only be there on the sidelines cheering him on, offering sustenance, an ear to vent into, be a revision buddy, a giver of cuddles…his anchor.
