Happy Mother’s Day! (is that just in Britain today or is it also worldwide?) Today, I thought I’d surprise mine with some chocolates, a nice card and some Krispy Kreme doughnuts (American) well…she did say that she wanted to go on a diet after Easter!


After I left the supermarket to head to the train station, I heard a car blast it’s horn at me a few times, I turn around and look at the car and it’s a girl waving at me…only I had no idea who it was…there was no one behind me…it was weird as I was like.


At least I think she waved at me but I didn’t really think too much about it as I had a train to catch but It couldn’t have been some kind of insult or anything, I mean how insulting is a wave?? Never mind though, on to the station.

I then manage to catch my weekly train on time and I travel into the Yorkshire Dales for a whole fifteen minutes and a cow even tried to play chicken across the tracks (Because, why not cow?)


Seems like a typical Yorkshire thing for a cow or sheep to make it’s way onto the track and not be bothered if a train blasts its horn at it but it eventually moved and I got to my hometown not too late (It is a really small town) to see my family, since it’s Mother’s Day and all to give mine her yearly gifts (it’s like a ritual, either get something or be shunned ha ha I’m kidding) As well as doing that, I began to write down notes for my next chapter in The Mystery of Edwin Moor, chapter 2, I can’t wait to start writing it, it’s something that I’m going to put a ton of effort into and make it the best story that I can so I hope that you check it out!

It is always good to see my parents and my older brother because ever since I moved from my parents house to live with Emma, I always felt like something was missing…family, even if they drive me crazy and sometimes I want to put a county between us but that’s family for you, if they didn’t get to you sometimes then I don’t know…somethings up. I am enjoying my week of work and hope that when I go back next weekend that I am not worrying about making a mistake as much as I have been doing the past month, to relax and calm down more, that’s my next challenge and to always work to the best of my ability. I would talk to my parents about my concerns and I would be told to relax and not worry, always check IDS if unsure and ask for help if you need it and that we are HUMAN and we can make mistakes.

We had a Chinese Takeaway tonight…I’m still full writing this now and coming back home to see my darling Emma is a great way to bring this week to a close but it’s been one where I have had plenty of time to think about the future and what really matters to me. A colleague’s death from University opened my eyes and made me see that life is meant to be lived and cherished because one day…it could end…no one should die at the young age of 21 like that…it’s wrong and I don’t want to have any regrets on the day I lie on my deathbed, I want to be able to smile as I say my goodbyes…knowing that I lived a good life. Here is what I need to have a happy life

  1. Family
  2. My Soul mate Emma
  3. Friends
  4. A Book
  5. A Pen

If I have all of these by my side, then I know that I will always be ok, life has it’s up and downs as well as it’s surprises to test you but it’s how you grow and learn from them that truly defines a person.

Could have done without Jeremy Clarkson leaving Top Gear though!

Until next time

Keep it real
