I'm sorry

Due to unforeseen personal circumstances I am taking leave from the blog,  reluctantly. When l return, which l plan to soon, I shall endeavour to explain.

I will miss you all greatly, but l will still lurk and comment and you can still leave a message here. Or email me.

For now,

Saz x


  1. I am sorry to hear that something has happened in your life that means you have to take time out from Blogging. Hope everything turns out OK.xx

  2. I hope you are okay! Take care and know you are in our thoughts.


  3. You will be much missed (especially by me) and I do hope and pray that it is a good thing that takes you away from us. Be safe, be healthy, be joyous! Be loved!

  4. Love light heading your way, dear Saz.

  5. Ack.. that sounds ominous. Sending best thoughts and hugs your way.

  6. Oh I'm so sorry, thinking of you. Take care and look after yourself. xx

  7. Hope all is okay! Hang in there!

  8. Thank you for the update - so difficult for you - scary and lonely and frightening - but perhaps the start of better things too.
    Thinking of you Saz

  9. Still thinking of you and hoping that you are coping with it all.

  10. l'm FIREFIGHTING its al l CAN do right now!!!!

    and seeing dentist, doctor, solicitors, hospital appts, work, packing,various advisors, coffee with friends who have my back...

    tomorrow is our 28th wedding anniversary, l am not going to stay home...even if l have to go to the cinema alone...

    moving out 6th March..

    Saz xxooxx

  11. Oh Saz, I am sending warm thoughts your way, hoping all is well with you and yours. x

  12. Due to a blog glitch the beginning of a post saying that your husband has asked for a "separati...." (that's all it says) appears on my blog list. This could be good news or bad news and I sincerely hope that, if it is bad, you could see the good in it. There is much to be said for independance.

  13. You are a woman of strength and you will get through this and come out the other side. No matter how long a relationship lasts it is always devastating to leave it.

    You will grow from this even more dear Saz and that bright smile of yours will return and beam down on us once again.

    Thinking of you and yours.

  14. Things are clearly not good for you but know that you are being thought of fondly with lots of warm wishes heading your way. Stay strong and look after you x

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
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…
