A recent Sunday morning walk along the miles of Solway Firth coast line en famille and Pippa of course!

By the time l had turned on my camera, father and children were streets or should l say sands ahead of me.....wait for me... no chance..

I was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the images, as it was an overcast, dull and breezy morning.

  1. Oh the beach! How nice to have a peaceful stroll down the beach!

  2. That long shot on the beach is really great. Did you ever catch up?

  3. Great subject a walk on a beach, have walked the same beach for the past 8 years, every year, but still to make my visit for 2008.

    Thanks for reminding me

  4. tiaras, carrie, chris and brian...
    yeah it is a great beach.
    I lived most of my life off and on on the Kent coast and I always could smell the sea air and hear on the sea and seagulls...when we move dup to Cumbria in '96, I felt landlocked, but upon exploration realised SIlloth, ALlonby and the SOlway were well within kicking distance, a half hour away..

    we don't go often enough...
    Brian..these pics were taken at Allonby, as we were drivingt o SIlloth and tlaking in the car we completely missed the SIlloth run off, and when we saw sign for maryposrt a fewmiles away we knew we wereway off track,luckily all roads lead to wherever you need to be somehow in we ended up just a heart beat from the Silloth dunes and wide expance of shoreline.

  5. OMG apologies, l hit the key before checking my spelling...!!

  6. Hiya! Just looking at those pics I feel I have swept away a few of my own cobwebbs.... did promise myself lots of long beachwalks this winter but all it's done is rain rain rain...... righto, spring beach walks here I come!

    Thanks for popping by mine, yes those are the actual rescue-ees. How COULD they??????? Right with you on bags too!

  7. so many beautiful beach walks on PSF this week and yours is no exception!

  8. Cool enough for jeans on the beach? Looks like a perfect place to be.

  9. We went over to the end of Hadrian's Wall at Bowness-on-Solway. I was amazed at how pretty that stretch of coastline is. Burgh-(oddly pronounced "Bruff") -by-Sands is a very attractive little village. There is so much history there. I was quite taken aback.

I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
