Manchester Lifestyle Blogger’s thoughts following break in!

Having returned from a lovely camping trip, we were faced with the news that our house here in Manchester had been broken into whilst we were away. The police were called but didn’t feel it was worth there while coming out to investigate… say no more!!!

My family had done a brilliant job of securing the house and clearing everything up and didn’t tell us until we were on our way home so we still enjoyed our holiday….

My immediate thought on the news was:


And then I remembered my Thought For Today last week and decided that it was time to….


Why let some ‘scroats’ who decided to steal our ‘stuff’ ruin our week!

Possessions can be replaced and thankfully …..


Or maybe I should stop the ‘positive thoughts’ and stick with….





Should I Keep Smiling


Just Go With the Flow and stick with ‘Oh Bollocks’?…….

      I know – meanies aren’t they! x

          To be fair – they were when I first found out – yep the air was blue! b**tards!!! haha x

      Thanks so much – it could’ve been a lot worse.. and hey ho – possessions can be replaced can’t they.. happy memories can’t! I very much appreciate that hug though xx

    Yeah, definitely Bullocks (except I’d go stronger! ) But life goes on doesn’t it. Keep smiling Wendy.

      Thanks Miriam – to be honest it made me realise how lucky I am to have such a great family who all rallied round to sort things out before we got home! Yep – it makes you realise how important our families are and they certainly keep me smiling! x

        That’s really nice Wendy. I’m glad to hear that. xo

        • September 22, 2016 / 11:01 pm

          Thanks Miriam.. How are you?

          • September 22, 2016 / 11:12 pm

            I’m doing okay, thanks Wendy. Big day trip to Sale yesterday to start sorting out mum’s legal stuff. All takes time and effort but at least I have good support around me.

          • September 22, 2016 / 11:18 pm

            Oh dear.. I remember it well and it definitely takes time and effort! Thank goodness for the support you have… xx

          • September 22, 2016 / 11:20 pm

            Most definitely!

    Even I would probably say Bollocks, there is nothing worse than having your home violated in this way, the good news, You and your family were not there ! Hope you are fine 🙂 and that you did enjoy your holiday !

    • September 22, 2016 / 7:08 pm

      Ahhh – thanks! The air was blue but smiling again now… I was glad that we weren’t at home as that must be awful and fortunately my family had cleared up the house so it didn’t feel horrible to come back into. We had a brilliant holiday! xxx

    • September 22, 2016 / 6:35 pm

      Yep still smiling 😉 and thanks you’re right.. the only way is up 🙌xx

    Definitely calls for bollocks. Many times over, I think! Like the beginning of Four Wedding and a Funeral but a different word. Say it, think it, as many times as you want! Glad everyone is ok.

    • September 22, 2016 / 6:37 pm

      Ahh thanks… yep to be honest the air was pretty blue and definitely matched four weddings (love that film!) 🙌Xx

  4. September 22, 2016 / 3:54 pm

    Oh Bollocks ! 🙂 <3

    • September 22, 2016 / 4:35 pm

      Yep – exactly! x

  5. September 22, 2016 / 3:26 pm

    Wow…OH bullocks for sure! AND keep smiling that at least you and your family were out of town and didn’t get hurt. BUT, OH Bullocks for sure!

    • September 22, 2016 / 3:29 pm

      Haha – see even my blogger friends are smiling (and swearing with me) – fab!!

  6. September 22, 2016 / 3:25 pm

    Oh no, I’m sorry to hear that. I would shout “BOLLOCKS” very loudly and possibly add in a rage dance. Hope you are all right : ) x

    • September 22, 2016 / 3:30 pm

      Fab – I like the idea of the rage dance – doing it RIGHT NOW!!!! Getting it all out of my system. Yep – thanks Samantha we’re absolutely fine although hubby was non too chuffed – they got his bike AND his wedding ring!! not sure which he was most sorry about but I have a distinct feeling it’s the bike. hehe xx

    Easy for me to say “keep smiling”……until it happens to me. I’d probably use a stronger word than ‘Bollocks’.

    • September 22, 2016 / 3:20 pm

      Haha – thanks Larry – if I’m honest ‘Bollocks’ was the polite version for me too! xx
