What a rough couple of week with illness, Emilia was only ever ill a handful of times before starting nursery and in the 7 months she’s been going i have lost count of the time she or I have been ill. 

To cheer me up on a particularly bad day i did a amazon order and am so in love with one of my purchases that i just have to share with you.

Evermarket 12 Eyeliner Eye / Lip Liner they are fab i personally have not yet used them as lip liners but they are lovely and soft but not to much they sharpen well and so far been used daily and have lasted all day on my waterline Swatches Possibly my favourite colour the dark teal

I highly recommend them at such a great price £3.90 with free p&p

Things fall in to place. 

Sunday morning was a blur of kids fighting over the cereal and milk getting ready for a family walk.https://www.visitmoffat.co.uk/things-to-see/grey-mares-tail 

My brother-in-law was up from teeside so we instead of laying about doing nothing with our sunday we wrapped up and headed of for a walk up the UKs 5th highest waterfall Grey Mare’s Tail and what a adventure we had the littlest little walked up at least 3/4 of the way before getting a wee bit of help from daddy.
The weather was dry with snow on the hill tops very pictures perfect, as we walked up the mist come in but soon as we walked around the corner at the top the sun came out just like something from a movie it was breathtaking and it might sound typical, but the first word we all said was “WOW”The sun came out at just the right time Breathtaking view

As i stood on the bank of the loch breathing in the fresh air a moment of peace fell over me and for just that minute i felt like the only one on top of that hill. Everything made sense the things that’s been spinning around my head stop and things fell into place. The people in my life that keep letting me down, that’s never there, that don’t take the time to see how we are. Even though we are family doesn’t mean i have to keep them in mine or my children’s life we have plenty of family we can rely on. 

So with this new sense of peace we will move forward with our life and plans for the future with no upset and heartache. 

As we set off back down the hill MrS have the call of macdonalds so why not! with all that work climbing the hill it couldn’t hurt. 

Arrived back home in time for bath, supper and bed that was welcomed by us all no argument. (Best nights sleep for a while) the littlest slept right though to 10am and was ready for bed at tea time on monday. This might just have to be a regular family activity. 

To round our sunday up it was a fabulous day enjoyed by us all and i have learned that it’s not just negative thoughts i need to let go of but negative people and once i had done this life felt easier. 

As for the waterfall it’s a must see absolutely stunning.
