Our Summer Holiday in Northern Ireland

So while everyone else is jetting off to sunny islands (or its seems like it from my Facebook feed!), we opted for a last minute trip back to Northern Ireland.  We had visited earlier at the start of the school holidays, bringing across our youth girls football team. It was a huge success,  and enjoyed it so much that we decided to come back.  So the three if us (me, Mr S and Miss L), packed up, leaving my older two at home....

Morrissey/Jacqueline Wilson - Oscar Wilde tribute image - Summer Holiday Activity

So one of our summer holiday activities was to recreate the iconic Morrissey image depicting one of his major influences, Oscar Wilde.  Oscar Wilde featured prominently in Morrissey's lyrics.  My husband in particular is a Morrissey/Smiths fan, Miss L loves Jacqueline Wilson books, so it kind of just fell into place.

I wanted to share this with you as it is fab, my youngest is so game for a lot of activities, she loved this one



Thanks for dropping by

My Hometown - Penrith

So I was born and brought up in Manchester, and I never imagined I would end up living in The Lake District, that to me was where you went to on holiday.
But then I met and married a Cumbrian and I found myself moving up North and have never looked back.  I have made my life here, living, working and bringing my family up in the beautiful town of Penrith, known as the "Old Red Town" because of its sandstone buildings, is a town in Cumbria's Eden Valley.

The Soundtracks of My Life

I was actually going to do a post on the tracks of my years, then I came across this tag by the lovely Em Linthorpe.  
I am not what you would call a true music buff, although I was always to be found taping the charts in my teen years (we all did that right?!) whilst sat in my bedroom.  I have memories of dancing round my bedroom making up dance routines with my friend, singing into hair brushes, thinking we were the bees knees. My tastes are diverse and random, I think that would be the most accurate definition.  It wasn't difficult to pick 7 songs that impacted on my life, to be honest I could have picked loads more.  So sit back and relax and don't judge!
