Celebration of a young 76 year old

Awoken to the view of the streaming sun through the curtains; I knew yesterday was going to be a great day!  The weather was fantastic.  Interchanging from dark clouds to clear blue skies.

My mums birthday.  76 years young.  Gosh she is one lucky lady.

- Never been admitted to hospital (except for childbirth)
- Never had surgery
- Walks everywhere
- Has boundless energy
- Has more friends than most people could dream of
- Holidays twice a year.

This is the lady who seems to have it all! Lucky Mum.

We decided to give her a nice family day out at the beach.  We had balloons and cupcakes,  sun and sea.  Directly after the sun began to set we headed out for dinner.
Chinking glasses with a loud 'cheers' we enjoyed our meals at our local 'pub grub' restaurant.

What a busy day! 

Loads of photos to share here with you. 

The gorgeous sandy beach

Jasmine and I enjoying the warm sand

Cupcakes from Lola's

My first ever cupcake in my life! It was amazing but very sickly! I'm not missing anything and won't eat another!

Blue sky with fluffy white clouds drifting past

Typical English seaside.  Beach huts galore!

My cute girl becoming a little girl again at the beach

Chose cupcakes, avocado or fruit? Hmm...

Gluten Free cakes available too!

Dinner at the Brewers Fayre. Lamb shank. 

Mr Smd ate a juicy rare T bone! 

Dad's awesome Beef and Guiness pie

We found a clay pipe at the beach!

Right in the middle of searching the rock pools for small fish, I spotted this clay pipe.  It's clearly very old and a bit broken.  Do you know anything about clay pipes?  What should we do with it?  Let me know via email if you know?

So what are you all doing this bank holiday weekend?

Sending much love

Breaking fast for FREE

If you are a family with children, you might want to know this useful tip!

The Brewers Fayre local to us (next to the Premier Inn hotels) gives you food for FREE!

Yes, you heard me correctly, they actually give away food.  So what's the catch?  There isn't one.  However, this is the condition.

One adult pays in full for breakfast (£8.75) and up to 2 children eat free (under 16's).  So you can't do much better than that! If you are anything like me, you get a house full of teenagers each Saturday night and there is nothing better than taking them along for a full slap up breakfast on Sunday morning.  They love you forever.

Of course, it's great for a single mum with a couple of children too! We frequently go there and enjoy the food.  It's great food too.  Many choices of health fruit, yoghurt, porridge etc as well as the cooked breakfasts.  Plus a selection of teas and coffees!

Check all the information you need here

Let me know if you go and enjoy the lovely offers there!

Wishing you the best of health and much love

My latest podcast - 3 easy steps to recover from a flare

Hey everyone

So in Kent this morning it looks like a beautifully sunny day! What's it like where you are in the world?  Leave me a comment and let me know.... So many people view this blog which is heart warming! I do love to hear from you all too though :)

Anyway,  I am excited to tell you after many technical difficulties I have uploaded my next Podcast! There's loads of gossip type news on there of updates on things we have done,  plus in the second half I tell you my latest updates on my Autoimmune Illness. Plus, if you are a sufferer too, I can show you 3 easy steps in how to recover on one of those 'emergency' days.

I had one of these last week which was a shock to the system after being well for so long!
I would love you to subscribe to my podcast and follow my updates. The aim is to help at least one person to feel better by sharing my stories of what worked well for me.

Wishing you a wonderful day of health and as always, much love

Louise xoxo

Happy Monday

We have so much to catch up on folks!

Goodness,  just yesterday I realised how far behind I am with literally, like,  everything!

Taking Nathan and his friends to Thorpe Park (theme park) yesterday, I thought I would seize the perfect opportunity for a day with my beloved laptop.  Knowing I had tons of footage to edit for Youtube,  loads of photos to get up on my photography blog and plus getting you all up to date here was nagging at me ever-so-slightly.  Topping this all off, I'm a week behind with my podcasting!

So it began,  my day of editing.  I managed to edit (for 2 hours) then lose my first project! Argh...  thinking I might well need another cup of tea,  a trip to the bathroom and start over again..
Second edit was ok but the wi-fi didn't allow me to upload unless I was prepared to wait 4000 minutes! You get the idea.

Anyhow lots got done yesterday but not as much as I would have liked.  This week,  as I wake at my crazy early hours that I usually wake at, I'm not going to scroll through Facebook, wondering if anyone has something interesting to show me but rather I will be cracking on with topping up my blog!

Here it begins!


Our camping trip!

Wow, what a week,  the weather was what we call 'blistering' here in the Uk.  Seems I'm always super lucky with weather when I get away on holidays!  Yet, this is exactly what you need when you are spending a week under canvas.  My lovely friend Lisa admired the way we can be less than clean and tidy for a week.  While it does take some patience, I would rather have that gritty experience and make some awesome memories as we break from the norm!

Have a look at the photos and the descriptions here and if you want to know more about where we stayed,  take a look at the website here: http://www.bodiamboatingstation.co.uk

You can also see my last blog post from the same place.  We do have different shots this time as lots of work has been done on the site which is fab.  Although along with that came the wasps! See about those in this video.

Setting up camp - Harley in tow

Beautiful river views

I love being close to the water

New cafe/bistro area for the public

My girl, frisbee time

Gorgeous gardens

Kayaking was top of the list for things to do!

Every night a fire pit!

Cheeky bee on a thistle.  Love this photo

Fishing for the boys

Flip flops all week!

The downside.  The wasps.



So you see we can have amazing weather here in the Uk.  We were so lucky! What a lovely place to have a holiday (when you have good weather!).

See my video blog here (you will love it!)

And here's to a week of catching up.  See you tomorrow!

Much love

Louise xoxo

ps, if you know me,  you will know I do love a bit of grass fed beef cooked on an open fire.  This, coupled with sleeping when the sun goes down and waking when it comes up (plus the country air) made me feel so much better! Perfect for those circadian rhythms.
