The View from this End..

Well, oh my Mother!

After nearly a month of  long distance phone calls,
sweat and toil, a trillion emails, messages to the non-people of the elusive and seemingly not contactable Google and Blogger...

We have had a result amid the reassurances, that Mum's Blog Name 'The View from this End' and address have been returned to her undressed in terms of her posts, but nevertheless is her natural home.

I think this has brought it shockingly clear to her, that she has blog land in her heart as well as mind amid the doubts and in the times, days, moments when she is frozen without a fresh post in her head.

She now knows without a doubt that she is truly entrenched and in love with blog land, with all their friends she has made within, and to their words which resonate and fill her...

l don't think she will be thinking of leaving here ever again.

Welcome home Mum!!

luv Saz x

p.s. if she is in your side bar, reader or dashboard list, she should reappear as she posts, but you willl have to follow her again....


  1. Brulliant to get the blog back - but undressed of posts. Have they all gone or is it that they won't let her have them back? Of course I will sign up again . . . . going right now. Eddie x

  2. Good that shes got the name back but when I think of all those wonderful posts being lost, my heart goes out to her.

  7. I wondered where the link I had went ... so glad this is all sorted out....xo

  8. Oh, your mum is AMAZING! In every way! She's so lovely, so clever, and what a wife... fifty-two years, my goodness, you are lucky to have such a mum!

  9. I didn't think I still had the capacity to blush, but gosh, what a lovely post and comments. Thank you...I have missed your company so much...t'aint any fun to be on the outside looking in.

  10. Woo Hoo!!! So glad!!! Welcome back, Moannie!!!

    And Saz... I LOVE your new background image!!! Tres chic!! Love you!!! XOXO

  11. Your Mum is a treasure. You didn't me to tell you that, but I did anyway.

  12. She sure is pretty, sorry to hear she's been having troubles with her blog - I'd simply shrivel up and weep if I lost touch with all my bloggie friends!

  13. Your Mother is a beauty and writes the same way.

    I am glad she is back. I have enjoyed her stories ever so much!

    Thank you for all the work you did for her Saz. You are a wonderful daughter!

  14. Awwwh! She is such a sweetie pie! Welcome back to Mum!

    That happened to me before and it took my daughter to realize that I had signed in under the wrong email. I had forgotten that I had a different email address for my blog sight.

    Good for her!

  15. Welcome back seems to little to say! Hear horn blowing and multiple noise makers causing calamity and cheers!~

  16. Good heavens you're a good-looking team :-) Great to have your mom (or rather, your mum). I hope you're doing well also!

  17. Thank you, I have recently been searching for information about this topic for ages and yours is the best I have discovered so far.

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…
