How To Survive Your Younger Years.

What age would you go back to?   Sixteen, Eighteen, your early twenty's?  I personally think that there is a huge difference between 16 and 24 not just in numbers but in life.  I am writing this post because I have seen a lot of younger people struggling and it has made me very sad and I some what know what they are going through,  of course everybody's situation is different  we all have different lives and family situations and a different set of problems.
 I am no expert on mental health I would never dare, I am only writing from my own point of view and my own struggles  when I was younger.  When I have talked to several younger people, lately my heart breaks for them I remember the self esteem issues that I had as a teenager, the fear I felt when sitting my GCSE exams, and leaving school was terrifying I didn't want to grow up it was scary, I wanted to hang out with my friends get drunk and snog boys, I knew that I couldn't do that I had to study I had to get a j…

Is Wolf Whistling Sexual Harassment?

The subject of wolf whistling can be a tricky one to discuss, is it harmless fun or is it a mild form of sexual harassment,  do you find it offensive? Are you being to sensitive? |Do you enjoy the attention? Or when you hear that little noise does it fill you with horror? 

  Myself personally I think it's a mild form of sexual harassment, I want to tell you all a true story, something that happened to me when I was 15. In the last four months of my secondary school life, I used to walk to school, about a 20 minute walk, the same route I took for five years, in all weathers.  in the spring time, houses were being built at the end of my road, and builders were working hard, when one day walking home from school, one of the builders wolf whistled at me, I went bright red and put my head down and ignored it. the next day in the morning the same thing happened and I did the same thing head down and embarrassed   this went on for three weeks in the morning to school and when home tim…

Four Days In Florence.

Hi I have just returned from a  lovely trip  to Florence in Italy,   we booked it a couple of weeks ago, I never thought we would get flights, but we did and off we went, I surprised myself really, when I book a trip it's usually months in advance and I have to plan every detail I don't know what your like my dear readers, I think it's a confidence thing,  this is the first time I have let someone else plan a trip and I just went with the flow, not like me at all. I came to the conclusion of, why am I worrying life is to short just go with it. And I did.


Ciao Italia


  We landed 9.00 am,  after a rather quite flight from Manchester Airport, weather was 17 degrees and a mixture of cloudy and sun.  Very different from the cool rainy UK, we had just left.  Hotel was a small boutique type I did want to say which one it was, but my partner has asked me not to name names, for privacy. reasons and I respect that. One day I will get him on the blog, you will see.       But it was…

Dedicated to  Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.








Dear Meghan,



                        I hope you are well, and that all is well with your pregnancy, I hope you are not stressed and are resting in the last few days of this magical time, and your Husband is looking after you, I am sure he will he is very protective of his new family.
                        I hope you have not been reading all the horrible comments from the trolls, that I have been reading including the awful and ridiculous one's  that has been on your very own Instagram account in the last few days, it just makes me realise  that in reading them, you can tell how much people believe what they read in online newspapers and magazine's  and over social media how ill informed they all are and how all these made up stories are ridiculous so obviously untrue it's laughable, for example your post the other day on your Instagram account where you unfollowed  everyone, if they had bothered reading it they would ha…

A TRUE STORY.

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …

Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?


1,  Start walking more, it's good for your mind and your body, I already do  this I walk everywhere I can.

2, Don't drink bott…

Life Update, My Red Trainers and Meditation Madness.

Hi all Easter weekend  is upon us, and the weather here in the UK is unbelievably beautiful,  it has been 19 degrees today and it's climbing this weekend, see it's not always raining here. Just thought I would give you all a quick life update, I haven't done one for a while on the blog, I really wanted to put my own mind in order, while updating the blog a little bit more on a personal note.
   Apart from life being life, busy with work and family, far too busy with work and family the last few months  have flown by,  I have been working so hard on the blog and when I started my little online thoughts section, I never thought is would grow the way it has, and the blogging community especially on Twitter are diamonds they have been so friendly and supportive, I decided to share other peoples posts, to help us all out, we need to get the blogs out there, bloggers work so hard on their  own content  I feel like it would be a shame not to share them around for everyone to …

Book Review, Prescriptions From Dr Love. by Dr Suzy Al Mushcab.

I have been asked to review a brand new book as part of a promotional book tour that takes place this month. The book that has been a privilege to review, the name of the book is  Prescriptions from Dr Love, 10 ways to transform dis-ease to ease. by Dr Suzy Al Mushcab.
   The book is a bout a women called Suzy who goes to see a therapist called  Dr Love, about her problems and how her life is. Suzy seems stuck in her life and through her consultations with the afore mentioned Dr Love she soon works out that stress along with her childhood, and her relationships with her family members have made her the way she is as a grown up, she also realises  that stress has affected her physically which has accumulated in her having stress related illnesses. .        Dr Love gives her treatments in the way of little prescriptions, which appear all the way throughout  the book , prescriptions of advice that Suzy needs to work on, a sort of homework for the mind.  I could relate to Suzy  person…

Do You Remember?

This post is dedicated to my family, without them I would be lost, I love you all very much. Mimi 💋
My new post,  Do You Remember?   has a mixture of fun and nostalgia, this time  I think I will have a break from the deep and meaningful posts for a few days and write something a little more happier for Spring,  I do like the deep posts, don't get me wrong but I just thought I would lighten up the load a bit so to speak. so here is a little insight of my crazy Childhood.
   I grew up in North Wales, my family are Italian an I am the  third out of four mad hatter Children, the one with Dungarees and dark haired plaits tied with Orange cat bobbles on the end wanting to be Elly May  Clampit from the Beverly Hillbillies, those of you who don't know that show google it, it's fantastic. 



  My childhood home was on a corner and everyone's child was usually at my house, no idea why maybe it was the Tip Top ice lollies my big Sister used to magic up, when really my Dad bought t…

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …

Meghan Markle Bullied Princess?

I wanted to write this post for a while, but wasn't sure if it is something people wanted to read about or weather I was in the right to write about it. But while I was eating my porridge this morning I was watching Piers Morgan on GMTV, those of you unfamiliar with this programme, it's a Breakfast television programme here in the UK and there was Piers Morgan  who is one of the presenters  yet again having another go at the Duchess of Sussex. The man is obsessed he never passes up an opportunity to have a go at her.  The story goes he once had a drink with her the very night she first met Prince Harry at Soho House in London, today's offering from the man is that he thinks she is a social climber who ghosted him  right after she met her future Husband, it was probably Harry who said Piers Morgan has got a big mouth don't be friends with him, I am sure Piers fancied her and his nose has been put out of joint, he keeps going on about her.
