Hi, I am Toni, an army wife to my wonderful husband, Action Man (or A-Man for short) and stay-at-home Mum of 2 beautiful toddlers, Danger and Sunshine, and 5 lazy cats.
I love my family, reading, all things to do with cooking and baking, crafting and getting back to nature. I am slightly neurotic, extremely clumsy, a hopeless romantic, inclined to talk to myself and still believe I have a chance of being a rockstar when I grow up.
I really like the word FLY – not the small annoying, shudder inducing insects, but the action depicted by the word. To lift off, to soar, to fly implies that you have made it, have discovered what sets you free and elevates you. I also love the way it is used as an acronym of Finally Loving Yourself, with both of these ideas in mind my first thought was to call this blog “Learning To Fly”, mulling it over I realised I was doing myself a disservice implying that I have not yet found my wings. I have a loving husband, two amazing children and a fabulous step daughter (Alpha-D), I am most definitely already flying. I chose then to call it “Always A Little Further To Fly” to remind me that a life worth living is a life worth working at, not to settle but to strive to achieve the things I really want in life. This then brought up the question – what do I really want?
This page is to chronicle my efforts to bring a little order into the chaos that has become my life, lose some weight, raise my kids, stay connected with my husband and find what truly makes me happy. It will include a little health and fitness, a dollop of cookery, some home management, a touch of craft and hopefully a fair amount of humour.
Please join me on my journey and feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you. Happy reading, enjoy!
