Golden







Its been a stressful few weeks in our household.
The first week of school was okay but the second was a wee bit hard on my son as they have a temp teacher.
I guess the change is a bit hard on him. I literally have to drag him out of the house and we are always late.
A first time since he started school for us. This week his teacher is back and things are getting better for him.



Marriage wise I am in a situation where I need to decide on something big and its taking a toll on my body. I am not feeling well.
And I am nowhere near in reaching a final decision.

Needless to say that my son and I need some fresh sea air. Its been awhile and we both deserve some late night walk.
We are so lucky that we stayed long enough to be able to see the sunset. Seeing the sky turns orange from gray is just amazing!







And there are lots of people like us who needs to be outside.
Lots of people are there too enjoying the golden colours that the sun gives.
I am feeling the change in air but the colour just warms us up.





The last photo was taken by my son. We obsessively wait for that couple to be at the right place before he took this photo.
We want to show the scale of the bridge and of course the sweet silouette adds romance!

And that is what it is, a romantic night indeed!

How I Celebrated My Birthday With Just £5







I am so sorry to have been bugging you with my birthday and promise that this is the last post about it haha.

My son and I celebrated my birthday last Saturday at The Grand Pier here in Weston-Super-Mare.
I dont have any money to spend whatsoever or well maybe I do. £5!
Entrance to the pier is £1 each and thats £2 for the both of us.

We of course took a photo of my son in their massive deck chair which my son and I wants to have at home.
You never know when BFG is coming over and you dont want to be rude asking him to sit on the floor are you?
And thats why we want that deck chair!



We had a wander around. Looking at toys and games and people first. Feeding on the happy vibe of the place.
My son went into one of the attraction called The Crystal Maze. He is so brave as he went there all by himself and just for a £1!
While he is there I took time to capture the colours on the game area.




After some more roaming around and drooling over the games that we cant play we exchange our last £2 for a lot of 2p!
I know its blurry but look at that face!



I werent able to take a photo of us playing the 2p machines as that needs proper concentration haha!
But we stayed there for awhile and our money gave us some tickets too.
We walked some more! And just soak up the nice view of the seafront in one of the balconies.


After which we head out in one of the outside benches to eat our packed lunch.
Eating with the view is just so perfect!


We finished off with fighting some pokemon battles! My son beat all of the monster and was able to hold the fort/gym for awhile.
He loved it!

We went home skipping and happy and this is one of the nicest birthday I had.
Of course when I went home my husband is just so happy to ruin it by initiating a fight.
But thats for another blog post.
£5 has never been so grand! (grand pier get it =P)

Birthday Week



Last year September is the darkest for me as I started spiraling down with depression. Today this year I am feeling a wee bit better. There are still dark clouds follwoing me around but I am trying my best to be a step ahead so that it will stay on the background. I have some responsibilities that I am trying hard to fulfill but I am not successful in a lot of them. If only they knew how hard it is for me. But I am trying. Trying .. keeping on swimming.

It was my birthday last Wednesday. I werent able to say thank you last year for those who greeted but this year I heard all of you and thank you for reaching out to greet me. THANK YOU!


Thanks to my sister who tried her best to make it nicer this year. These cards from home is so ... that card with the lady, thats my mother. We have a small store and our dog Juanito is always with her. Thats so her and that made myheart swell with happiness. She did not send me a photo and yet in my head it is a photo of a scene from out small store.



Thanks to a Mum from my son's school for giving me a new watercolor! I have something like this but there are 4 colours that already missing because it is what I mostly use. Having a new one is the best ever as I am itching to do some more watercolor works =)


I would like to apologize for not commenting a lot on the linky that I am joining. I am trying my best to catch up but its just really hard.
Sorry as well for the usual linky that I am joining, if I am not joining now. Just bear with me.
Just give me a chance to recover from this month and I will be back with a bang this October.

I am still hanging around the couch but not as much.
Thats big for me. Beating my demons ... is hard... because sometimes I just want to give in and at times I am giving in but mostly I am fighting it.
Fighting yourself is hard. Eitherways, win or lose... I am still the one who suffers. Because its me against me.

But I am still here, visible and telling my story to the world. That matters, I think.

Birthday is my word of the week.

Poke Stops












I am a bit of late in this pokemon go thing. But its so nice to play as I am inspired to go out again.
This is Marine Lake. An area at the end of the seafront and where there poke stops at every 10m!
Incense and lure is always used here! So its so amazing to have a walk while catching those cute pocket monster!

7p





Although we started school like this:


I still think that he enjoyed the first week of school.
But we still have the summer holidays hungover so we still always walk before we eat our dinner.
This is our walk last night.
I am so sorry that the photo is always out of focus.
I am still not use to not having a viewfinder and I suck big time without it.












He actually wants to stay longer but its school night and we need to head back earlier than we are used to in the past weeks.
But its a good walk as he was able to tell me about how his week was and what he did. On one part of the walk he even managed to lie down and look at the still clear sky. He was pointing at the smaller birds flying and he is daydreaming on pokemon flying in the sky. He also found a 2p coin on the ground and said he has found a treasure! He then went to the sands to look for some more but was not lucky. I rummaged through my pocket and found a 5p coin and gave it to him and he was elated. 7p and my child is in treasure heaven! I wish I am the same haha.

We were holding each other's hands while walking back home and I thought to myself, life is good.

7p is my word of the week.

Life's a Beach!







As I am still trying to catch my breath after a long summer holiday I see myself looking at space remembering the antics that we did last August.
And I mostly see water and sand but mostly water!

I am so glad that though there are gloomy days there are more sunny ones.

Starting with me seeing lovely boats in the sea horizon for the first time while we are on our way to the Water Park.



And how even when its Gloomy and Windy we are still at the beach having fun!



We are so lucky to win some bug hunting kit and we are using it a lot. Like this trip to the .. yes you guessed it right, the beach again.
Here we are Bug Hunting on the massive rocks and finding some colorful small ones.



But I think the highlight of August for us is our trip to Weymouth. First time to be there and we fell in love with the water!


We also climbed a tree, fell and climbed back again!


And another water trip is to the lake! We had fun seeing them ducks and swans again but mostly my son's fave is this guy.


There are so many changes that had happened to my family this August.
Physically my son lost some of his chubby cheeks and was looking more like a boy now.
(As oppose to the photo of us in my about me corner).


As I told you before September is brutal for me because it is my birthday month
and a reminder of how much I havent seen my family for so many birthdays now.
It is starting, if you are following my blog you will see how less I am posting and joining linkys.
My head is actually empty of ideas on what to write about. Or rather it is not empty, just thinking too much of home.



And I am yearning more to see my family and I am going back to that sofa and daydreaming that I can go home.
But I am trying not to tackle this on set depression sitting down. I am trying so many new things to keep my mind off of that sadness,
of that yearning for my family and of daydreaming than living in the now, in here.



You have seen me here today which means I am winning against it.
I can only tell you that this is hard. It takes so much effort just to produce this post and so many days to collate everything.
But I finished a post. Not much effort to a lot of you but takes so much for me.

I hope that you had a nice August like me and my son did and hope that your September will not be as dark as mine.
