So yesterday I spent the day with my Mam in Durham, we wandered around browsing the charity shops and had lunch at Fat Buddha.
We had salt and chilli king prawns to start, then I had chicken teriyaki with egg fried rice and my Mam had king prawn Malaysian curry with egg fried rice. yum yum.
We didn’t buy much but I found a few books in the charity shops….one of them seemed to come at just the right moment!
It’s called “Other People’s Love letters” and sort of reminds me of postsecret. it’s filled with messages of love, apologies and goodbyes. Which seemed very fitting as I posted a package that day which lifted a massive weight off my shoulders.

There was one note which stood out for me more than any of the others:


Took the words right out of my mouth.

And yes i need to put the turkey pics up still!

    Sounds like you and your mother had a fabulous time! It's great to see mother and daughter with a healthy and fun relationship like that.

    I have heard of that book you purchased. As a matter a fact, I believe I skimmed through it at the bookstore and I remember being enthralled by it! I love the picture you posted. Kind of sad that the romance finished but wonderful that she empowered herself enough to leave a relationship that did not please her.

    I also thank you for your comment on my blog. Glad it made you laugh. You should have seen the lady in south beach with all the holes in her dress and everything hanging out. You would have run!! LOL

    Have a great week my friend!

    I forgot to add that I love that dark fashion. There is something quite sexy and confident about it. I especially like the photo with the woman in white tights that go above her kneee. That picture is fun because it evokes innocence with those tights, but a woman with the heels, and a bit of masculinity with the army looking dress. BEAUTIFUL!
