all change

The huge change in my domestic circumstances, which began just three short weeks ago has resulted in another house move. My 30th! So the next few days are moving days.

Age 51 and after 35 years, I am starting over...

watch me fly!


  1. This is the beginning of a new life, a fresh start... its going to be whatever you make it and m'dear with your style it will be smashing!

  2. I always got a kick out of your old blog moniker, but I think that this new one is even better. ;)

    A new journey: good luck to you.

  3. Nice look! well done x good luck x

  4. The beginning of a new life! Wow! Now you can do whatever YOU want!

    Thinking of you bright eyes!

  5. How many moves??!! You're a pro, and you certainly will fly!

  6. Birds start every year anew! There are new opportunities in the air. Life is an adventure and you don't know it until you start enjoying it.

  7. Hey, FFF.... I .have missed the nitty gritty here, but something awful seems to have happened.....
    I'm so sorry. Life is tough, but you are strong and you will survive this and grow stronger....
    Good luck with everything.

  8. A new house and a new start, Saz.
    Congratulations on your new home and I hope that you will soon feel very settled in it and wish you all the best.

    Nuts in May

  9. The 'new you' can start at aged 51 or 21 (or 23 as I'm figuring out). It's a scary but exciting time and I look forward to you 'spreading your wings' and reading all about it xx

  10. We will all be the wind beneath your wings Sazzie-wish to all the Gods I could be with you.

  11. Just when we think the easy stuff is over.
    Cute picture and a wonderfully easy attitude it reflects.. hope you can capture some of that essence. Good luck!

  12. I told you to add the word "Feisty" months ago, I am glad to see that you finally did.
    Chin up, kiddo.

  13. Yay! And fly you will.

    All the best of luck for the move, me next week hopefully. Will be thinking of you, take care and keep in touch :)

  14. Thirty moves? WOW! - You must be a professional by now. I hope you find your starting over to be glorious!

  15. Sounds like adventure to me. Enjoy the ride.

  16. Well done Saz!
    And you had better post pics of your new home - cardboard boxes and all!

  17. "Watch me fly!"

    Oh yes! You WILL fly; the wind will drag you down at times, and you'll search out a branch to rest upon; rains will force you to bow your head, but give you renewed strength when the storm is over; some of your twigs may be broken, but there are plenty of new twigs out there, and you've got plenty of nest building experience...

    You're not gonna just're going to SOAR!

  18. Hello
    For some reason you have vanished off my blogroll and I can't get your URL to add on again-will keep persisting. In the meantime I am still following! Jo

  19. Good luck with your move!

    I love your new FFF!!!!!
    Definitely love it, it is so much more you.

  20. Hello Young Sez

    Long time no see or hear

    Drop me a line

  21. There is a reason for everything(they say) and mostly that's true if you can get the right attitude about it. You have wonderful opportunities ahead......

  22. may the support of friends and family be the currents on which you soar.

  23. Wow Saz,

    This sounds mysterious, unless I've missed a significant piece of info. THis seems major.

    HOwever, I pray the best for best for you. A new beginning is the best for any situation. I've been there done that fromt he largest to the smallest scale.

    Do it girl! POsitive thoughts and prayers to you!

  24. Love it! Attagirl! That's the attitude, and I love the name-change. I'm watching...

  25. WIshing you a wonderful move and a fabulous new adventure.

    Also, I noticed your changed your blog URL to your new positive name, but your old blog name still appears on the side bar. Is that something that can be corrected in your profile???? I have no idea how it works but I wanted to let you know.

    Regardless-- wIshing you only positive things moving forward.


  26. Sometimes a new start is exactly what is required. That doesn't make it easier to deal with but it does open up doors that were closed before. All best wishes to you and good luck with the move x

  27. May you soar, Saz.

    Try not to fret, sometimes changes bring with them untold, undreamt of joys. Wherever you land, may you be happy!

  28. I just have found your blog and lingered a bit, read along and read about your pain. I am so sorry to hear. It is just so deeply painful when dreams afll apart. I wish you all the best and strength on your ay of receovery and becoming a new self. Safe hugs

  29. Ahhh, a new adventure awaits! Go forth and conquer.
    Saw you on Stephen Parrish's blog and love your blog name!

  30. Best wishes to you. It can be done! (Flying, I mean.) ;^)
    I started completely over at what some would consider a "late date" in my life. But I view it as my life just beginning!!!
    I like the quote, "Angels fly because they take themselves lightly."

  31. oh my goodness - where to start! first of all, wonderful blog name change, 2nd - i'm so sorry to hear of the end of your marriage, especially if it wasn't your choice - that makes a terribly difficult thing even more difficult. there will no doubt a period of change and adjustment, and who knows how long these things can take! did u say u have moved 30 times???

    it sounds like you have wonderful friends and that you got moved ok and without TOO much stress! plse let me know your new address so i can send those lovely things you wanted!!!

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…
