Blogpost Ideas, Family

Who would I trade places with for the day and why

Hey lovelies,

I hope you’re having an amazing start to the week.

I’ve read many blogpost list ideas since I started blogging, lots of which were not relevant to me or my cup of tea but when I seen this idea, I knew straight away who it would be, so I had to do this post (the only problem is, I can’t actually remember whos’ list this belonged to).

The person I’d trade places with for a day is –

  • My niece, Tallie (Natalie).


    ~ Me & Tallie ~

Here’s my reasons why –

  • She’s one of the strongest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing
  • She’s a mother & makes it look so easy & so much fun
  • She has the ability to let you know when she’s pissed off with you, with just one look, I’ve had that look on more than one occasion & immediately thought “why did I say/do that?”, honestly, I wanted the ground to just open up & swallow me (I’m so sorry for the times I received that look). She doesn’t need to argue with you & she doesn’t like to.
  • She loves love, happiness & smiles, she oozes them & has plenty to go around.
  • She’s so girlie, I love it.
  • She has the ability to light up a room upon immediate entry & no matter your mood, always manages to make you smile.
  • She gives her life to her children & has such a busy mum schedule but still finds time to make you welcome into her home, she would greet you at her door no matter the time of day with a smile & an offer of a hot beverage.
  • She puts me in mind of a swan, when you observe her, she glides by gracefully but underneath it all, her inner ‘legs’ must be going like the clappers. Hehe.
  • I’ve never known anyone like her.

The tag words I’ve attached to this post are just some of the words I would associate with Tallie.

I’m proud beyond words to call her my niece & wish I seen her more than I do.

Love you lots Tallie.

I do have more of an unrealistic pick –

Kate Middleton –

I would love to know if she’s able to live a remotely normal life with her family & how they all interact (here’s a thought for you, William & Harry remind me of Stefan & Damon in Vampire Diaries! William’s Stefan, more stable & Harry’s Damon, seems to like danger & take more risks. Hehe).

I hope you have an amazing week.

Bye for now.

Comfy, Cornwall, Summer Solstice, Things I Love, Travel, Whole30

A gift from me to you………………….

This post is from me to you, it’s a recommendation for 3 things I think everyone should do at least once in their lifetime.

1 – Visit Cornwall or more specifically, South Cornwall – it’s like stepping back in time, visiting South Cornwall is like a warm fleecy blanket on a cold, wet day……………….it’s homely, cozy & comfortable.

Here’s a little taster………..

Poldark Filming Spots – if you like Poldark but not yet seen the original, you seriously need to watch it, that was the start of my love for Cornwall……………..

2 – Go Stonehenge for the Summer Solstice in June, it’s amazing, the atmosphere is electric & everyone is in such a fantastic mood, it’s not an easy thing to describe but trust me, I love it – a little tip for you would be to be prepared in case it rains because Stonehenge is surrounded by fields.

Here’s a few pics that have been taken when i’ve been in the past………………………….

3 – Do a Whole30. I did one in January, I didn’t do the whole 30 days, I did 23 days, I really wished I did though, I lost inches off my body, lost 1 1/2 stone & had a few NSVs (none scale victories) along the way, including my aches & pains getting easier. Here’s some links with all the info you could possibly need – The Whole30 Link…………………….My Whole30 Recipes Pinterest Board…………………………My Whole30 Breakfast Recipe Pinterest Board……………………………..My Whole30 Lunches Recipe Pinterest Board………………………..My Whole30 Dinners Recipe Pinterest Board…………………….My Pinterest Board full of information about the Whole30.

Here’s 2 books I recommend you give a read if you’re considering doing the Whole30 –


If you have done any of the 3 or intend to, i’d love to hear about it.

Love Sarah M
