The Altar Server!

My Captured

Dear Ellie, February 2006 I have changed My Captured Moment today because I am not sure if you have heard that a priest was murdered, in a very brutal way, in France a couple of days ago – during mass. He was an old man, the same age as Grandma Mary, who was covering for the regular priest while he was on holiday. It is horrendous to think that something that horrific could.. Read More

Imagination!

Hi Elle, Don’t you think this quote is fabulous, it makes me think of Evie? In Paris, she announced that she didn’t want to be a writer anymore. Well given that she has been writing full books, with a cover and a blurb,  since she was about six, I decided to take the news with a pinch of salt. When we found out about all the horrible school stuff , I guessed that had.. Read More

Evie –  23rd July 2016 Evie was festival ready yesterday; colourful stripey blanket – check skinny jeans – check cool sleeveless top – check flat shoes to match said sleeveless top – check flowers in hair – check! We were at Liverpool International Music Festival and it was awesome! Evie’s friend came too and everyone had a great time, especially Jack who was admired and fussed over all day. If you are local,.. Read More

Liverpool International Music Festival!

Just popping in quickly this morning. Yesterday evening we popped to Sefton Park to see the start of this weekend’s Summer Jam. It is a family friendly event that is part of Liverpool International Music Festival. It’s really well organised and despite there being lots of people, there was still plenty of room to set up base camp. There are lots of little areas including one dedicated to families and fairground rides a.. Read More

Five on Friday!

Dear Ellie, I am going to go straight into my Five on Friday for this week…….. One Our bedroom, in particular our bed, I spent most of Sunday, all of Monday and most of Tuesday in it this week. I have had some sort of throat virus type bug thing and been wiped out. Therefore, this week’s five is a wee bit scant I am afraid. Two Auntie Mandy and I went to see Ab.. Read More

Sheila

My Captured

Hi Elle, Please forgive me for this one, I am hoping that enough time has passed now for you to think it is cute too. August 2010 This takes me back to a time when I was able to take the whole summer holidays off with you and Evie. By August 2010 I had been driving for four years and ‘Sheila’ was still going strong. If you remember ‘Sheila` was my first car and.. Read More

We Heart Hoylake!

Hi Ellie, Saturday saw us popping to Hoylake, a village which on the west side of the Wirral. It was their Festival of Firsts this weekend which included a carnival. We got there early because we thought the roads were going to be closed, and wandered along the high street. We were delighted to stumble across the Wirral Ukulele Fanatics. Evie had a Ukulele for Christmas and has been teaching herself the basics.. Read More

Three Wet Dogs!

Hoylake Beach – 16th July 2016 Jack, Molly and Buddy! They look like three ragamuffins, soaking wet because they found a pool and lots of deep puddles in the sand, you would think that nobody owned them. In reality, they are three pampered pooches who had a great time hanging out together yesterday! They kept all their two legs* amused for hours. Have a lovely day! *Humans who pander to their every whim.. Read More

Five on Friday!

Dear Ellie, It is Friday, thank goodness! But what a week! We have a new Prime Minister and she has already moved into Downing Street. It is Theresa May, do you remember when we used to talk about her shoes? I don’t think I share her politics but wish her the best of luck! The weather remains changeable although veering more towards wet and cold! Oh well, there have been some highlights, here are.. Read More

Both Girls!

My Captured

Hi Ellie, Thank you for posting this picture on your Instagram last Thursday to wish me Happy Birthday. I had forgotten all about it and it did make me stop in my tracks. Your leaving party, when this was taken, seems like so long now, was it really only four weeks ago? It was such a lovely night and I know you were overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity, we didn’t expect it either –.. Read More
