#50for50 part 2

It all started a couple of years ago when my sis Manda sent me a card saying we will wear flip flops together again.


Flipflops in Florida

So part of my #50for50, 50 things to make me happy in my 50th year, had to include seeing her. Now Manda lives in Canada so we don’t get to see each other too often, last time was nearly 2 years ago when she came over for my son’s wedding. It was our time to cross the water. I started looking at prices to fly to Ottawa for the summer and the prices were ridiculous, but in searching, as the internet does, it saw we were looking at flights and so I kept getting notification of flights to Orlando at much cheaper prices. When I told Manda about this she said OK we’ll meet you in the States then, where shall we go?
During a conversation with my friend, Jackie, who I knew had had good holidays in Florida, she said we should look at Anna Maria Island, their tag line being – another day in paradise.

Another day in paradise

The pictures looked amazing, she sent me a couple of links, and although the cottage she suggested through Owner’s Direct was not available in the dates that we could do another one by the same owners was, I sent the link to Manda and got a text back saying ‘It has a hammock, I’m there’ so we booked.

It has a hammock, I'm there!

It has a hammock, I’m there!

We planned and booked, and flew out on May Bank Holiday Monday.  I woke up every morning and looked out with a big smile on my face and said ‘It’s sunny!’  We wondered how long it would take for me to get fed up of saying that, I think the sun shining in the morning will always make me happy so maybe quite some time.  We enjoyed our breakfast outside every morning. Breakfast in Florida

We didn’t do much during the week, we walked to the beach, all of about 50 yards,My walk to the beachWe swam in the sea, which was as warm as a bath, with many comments such as ‘Withernsea was never like this!’

Pam swimming in the seaWe swam in the pool, regularly, in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening too.  Florida Pool AreaWe enjoyed the many flowers and different plants, bougainvillea being my favourite.



When Manda had googled about the area she said, it says that all there is to do is to watch the sunsets and shop in the little artisan shops, and could I manage this (she knows I didn’t get the shopping gene), but we managed! We both treat ourselves to a gorgeous pair of earrings as a lovely reminder of the holiday.

And we watched the sunsets.One of many sunset picsFlorida sunset Pam



And while everyone was watching the sunset over the sea, we turned around and the moon and clouds were amazing (and yes they really were this colour, but with even more pink in too that doesn’t show so well).  Florida sunset clouds

This is my kind of happy!  After reading lots about happiness and running a local happiness group I know that what makes one person happy might not do the same for another person.  It might not be for everyone, but it certainly was another day in paradise for me & my sis. (oh and by the way the boys came too!)

Old Fashioned Gingernuts

Gingernuts350g self-raising flour
a pinch salt
200g golden caster sugar
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
115g unsalted butter
85g golden syrup
1 large egg beaten

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl with the salt, sugar, ginger and bicarb of soda. Put the butter and syrup in a small pan and heat very gently, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts.  Remove the pan from the heat, let cool until just warm, then pour on to the dry ingredients.  Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

Using your hands, roll the dough into about 30 walnut-sized balls (or smaller for smaller biscuits) Place the balls well apart on prepared baking sheets, then flatten slightly with your fingers.

Cook in   a preheated oven at 170C/325F/Gas 3 for 15-20 mins or until golden brown. REmove from the oven and leave on the sheets for 1 minute to firm up, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container and eat within 1 week, or freeze for up to 1 month.

If you like these chewy like I bake mine 15 – 16 mins is enough, for more crunch leave for the 20 mins.  In my oven I put them in, set the alarm for 6 mins, swap shelves, 5 mins, swap shelves, then 5 or 6 mins.  I also sometimes add some fresh/frozen chopped ginger in. And if you don’t have unsalted butter, salted works fine but omit the salt!  Enjoy. xx

Saying bye to a good friend…



Last week we said goodbye to Karla.  She had been a member of this family for just over 5 years having rescued her from Jerry Green Centre in Gilberdyke.  As a rescue dog she had her issues but when we found out that she had no normal lung tissue left and was starting to struggle to breath then we had no other choice than to put her to sleep.

She was about 6 years old when she joined our family, and we are so lucky that we found her.  She gave us so much love and enjoyment over the last few years.  Without her now the house is very quiet and very empty.  There is no face to greet you at the window as you walk up to the front door, there is no bark when the post arrives or random people walk past in the street. There is no one to protect me from the dangers of the window cleaner or my visitors when they knock at the door!  She still regularly barked at Luke (son) & Allan (husband) when they came into the house, just to let me know they had come in.  She had a good bark on her but would never do more than bark.   She was still a bit of a wimp when we were out and about, putting on a defensive show to ensure she got the first bark in so that others would back off.  Off the lead she would be at the other end of the field rather than have a confrontation anytime.  With the whippet in her she could still outrun most other dogs she encountered.  And even up til last week went for a run as soon as she was let off the lead.

The house may be cleaner and I do not missing hoovering every day (she was the hairiest dog we have ever had!) but I am missing her more than I let on.  I will soon be heavier as I am not routinely walking at least 2 miles daily, but somehow it doesn’t feel right to walk without a lead and some poo bags in my pocket!

There are other dogs that need rescuing, and one will be coming to join our family at some point in the future (and yes I’ve already had a little look online) but it is too soon for now.  For now we have said our goodbyes, we will plant a tree in her memory to go in the garden alongside the one we have for her predecessor Pippa, and we will still say ‘Who is it?’ to the empty space at the end of the sofa when the doorbell goes, or look for her to greet us when we get home and miss her each time her little face does not pop up.

Thank you Karla for being a big part of our family life, we miss you and will not forget you.  xx
