Our Railway Children Walk

“Daddy, my daddy!” If you’ve seen The Railway Children then those words are likely to have you sobbing your heart out and if they don’t then you’re probably dead in side. I’ve definitely watched the film more times as an adults and certainly appreciate it more now too. My sons Grandparents live in Oakworth and

What makes you, you?

      Earlier this week I attended the funeral of a lady whom I had never met. I was there to accompany my Mum, I don’t just randomly turn up at strangers funerals. I must admit I was rather perturbed by the prospect of sharing this personal experience with people who before that day,

Paranormal Investigation – Hames House

    If you’ve ever been to my Dad’s house you’ve probably been regaled with the story of Mr. Ackroyd. Mr Ackroyd and his wife lived at Kirkfield before we moved there in 1983. Mr Ackroyd passed away sometime around 1980, we think, apparently he had a heart attack in the front garden of the

Just for the sake of it.

I have around ten thousand thoughts an hour. Well it’s probably way more than that…actually I’m going to Google that right now. Okay, so the average person has around 2,000 – 3,000 thoughts per hour. With that in mind I definitely believe that my prediction of 10,000 thoughts an hour for myself is true. I

“Do you have a plan?”

“I don’t even have a pla…”     I love making plans! In fact I love the planning more than the doing. I get excited about all of these wonderful things I’m going to do, then my anxiety kicks in and I freak out. Well it can sod off. I’m busy this year and anxiety

Ahhh January, where dreams are made and ultimately destroyed.

The title has nothing to do with what I’m saying here, I just liked that title.       I made a decision in November that January would be a month of rest for me. I’ve been very stressed, tired and rushed off my feet. I knew December would be a busy one, when isn’t

“Today is the first day…blah blah blah”

  “Seize the day” “What have you done today to make you feel proud?” I’m certain I’ve said these things before or at least very similar. I’m just being consistent and making sure I get my point across… 😉 or just being mildly irritating, take your pick. I just want to make you aware that

“Of course I run, it’s good zombie training”

  Some of you may laugh but I’ll be ready when they come.  “Rule #1 Cardio”   I am not and never will be, a gym bunny. My 2018 will not be starting off with false promises of gym membership and how I’m going to be there before work, after work and all weekend. I

Weekly Review

      Well the weeks just seem to be getting shorter and shorter, 2018 is so close I can almost smell it. It’s Christmas tomorrow and I’ve never felt less Christmassy. Every year I tell myself that next year will be the year that the house is transformed in to a Winter Wonderland (it

The canal is my friend…so what.

  I wouldn’t ordinarily be on the canal in the dark because it is a rather scary place, however on this particular day I had walked in to Shipley and didn’t take in to account that it would be getting dark by the time I walked home…   But! I was brave and I didn’t
