Personal Stories

A little space I’d like to share my personal stories with you….

I don’t write in a diary. I don’t record my days with words. Instead, I use pictures. I post quite a few on Instagram and more recently have been using Instagram Stories. At first Insta Stories to me was a bit of a waste of time. I’d think, I’m not interested in other people’s stories, why would they be interested in mine? But, as time went on I found myself watching these stories, keeping in tune with the people and the things I like (and I must admit, I watch these now probably more than I watch tv). I began sharing my stories and connecting with people on a different level. And, if I post a story, I watch it over and over, and I always save it. Recording things is a part of me. I can’t ever change that and I don’t want to.

I’ve decided to set up this Personal Stories space so I have somewhere to share my family adventures with you. These stories will consist of raw, in-the-moment images. Taking pictures as they happen and not trying to set up any. I feel there’s such an importance in recording your life’s memories because life swings by so fast, I often forget what I did yesterday. I’m going to aim to update this space as often as my me time allows me. This isn’t work, it’s personal, so for me, it’s something I can do to get my mind off things, release tension and in a way, look back, unwind and smile. If there’s anything my stories can bring to you, I hope it’s inspiration x

The weather was freezing, but I wanted to get out and explore with the girls. We rugged up and braved the chilly winds…. The girls walked the entire loop (the shorter distance track) and it’s suitable for dogs too, so we took our Ned along for the walk.
