A new day.

As the first rays of the sun peeked over the horizon, the sky was painted in hues of pink, orange, and gold. The world was still and quiet, as if holding its breath in anticipation of the new day. I sat on the edge of the cliff, watching the sunrise with a sense of wonder and awe.

The sun rose higher and higher, casting its warm glow over the landscape. The birds began to chirp and sing, and the world slowly came to life. It was as if the sunrise had breathed new energy into everything around me, and I felt invigorated and alive.


As the sun continued to rise, I couldn’t help but feel grateful for the beauty of the world around me. Watching the sunrise was a reminder that every day is a new beginning, full of endless possibilities and opportunities. And as I sat there, basking in the warmth of the sun, I knew that I was ready to embrace whatever the day had in store for me.

Breakfast Time, what will it be?

I notice it is #WorldCerealDay today, so thought I’d write a list of my top 5 cereal choices.

A drawing of a box of cereal, alongside it there’s a huge milk jug, a bowl full of cereal and a spoon beside it.
  1. Rice Crispies
  2. Weetabix.
  3. All Bran.
  4. Readybrek.
  5. Cheerios.


Is it just me, or do you too enjoy going on sites such as https://www.rightmove.co.uk/ and looking at different properties?

I love browsing on there and looking to see what’s available, and what the prices are doing? I seem to have medium size price wants, not the really expensive ones, I’ve no desire for a swimming pool, fancy bathrooms, outdoor hot tubs, or huge ponds.

Prices are going down by the looks of it at the moment, I’ve noticed a couple of properties have dropped £10,000 recently.

Please tell me though, what on earth is it that people love so much about gravel?

As a wheelchair user it’s not my friend anyway, but it’s so untidy it spreads everywhere if you’re not careful. I’d much rather have tarmac or a brick weave driveway. Brick weave would be my preferred option, but tarmac would probably be cheaper.

Solar panels are something I’d definitely opt for, especially as we now seem to be having heatwaves more often.

Lots of dog friendly open spaces would be a great selling point to me, and ideally within walking distance of the local shops, on a good bus route to places further away.

Morning bird.

Are you more of a night or morning person?

Morning bird, or a night owl? When I was younger, I was definitely a night owl and would sit up half the night reading books.

Nowadays I am a morning person, quite happy to get up fairly early and have a cuppa and get the day started. If I do this the day can be quite productive – unless I allow myself to get distracted or it’s a miserable cold/wet day, you know those days you just can’t get motivated.

I like to just get up and get things moving, get jobs done and then come the afternoon/evening I’m outta that burst of energy and the pace slows down. I’ll pop the TV on, or the laptop, or just sit and have cuddles with the dog and relax.
