Hello, Mimi here.

Hi, I have decided to start my very own Blog let me introduce myself my name is Mimi, and I am about to Blog, I will be Blogging about mainly the things I see around me, I am not a young Blogger, but there is far to many of them anyway He He He, so I thought one of the older ones should give it a go.  What the hell have I got to loose I hope you enjoy my content. So here goes..........
         

The world cup has finished Hurrah, can we get back to normal programming PLEASE,  So looking forward to a bit of Corrie what do I see The Voice Kids NOOOOOO. Not again stop moving Coronation Street around.  

                             I did see something really good on BBC2 the other night Picnic at Hanging Rock, I loved it I was  Fan of the original Film from the 70's (no I'm not that old) I thought the acting was really  good, the scenery was spookely beautiful, and it had the right atmosphere, I would highly recommend it. Can't wait for this weeks episode.
                                           

                                           Migraine, and very noisy dogs, Birthday plans.

Not posted for a while, Sorry had a bad migraine for a couple of days, and no it's not just a Headache, like I have heard so many times for years.  I have two very noisy beagle dogs living at the back of me and they are driving me nuts, they bark at all hours the last two mornings they have woken me up at 6 am weather I like it are not, nearly shouted out of the window to Shut the dogs up(but I am far to polite). 
                                         Birthday time is coming up in the next couple of weeks, and now is the time I am asked, the ultimate question what are your plans...... I don't know, do you celebrate turning 45, is it a significant Birthday?  not sure really was going to have a smallish dinner party, but people are on there holidays,  since I was a Child I have had to put up with sorry we can't come we are on holiday, I am used to it the complications of being born the first week of August.
     

                                                     Finding somewhere to park.

                                          Went out to the retail park, get some Summer shopping done, do you think I could find a parking space, No!, took me nearly half an hour , why Mama Mia here we go again is on at the cinema, the car park was so full, I have never seen it like that before, now I love Abba but not that much, Not a big fan of the first film really, I was actually quite shocked to see so many people there, I am so sure it must be a nostalgia  thing.  Now the question is, shall I go and see it or not?................

International Women's Day. Who Is Your Inspirational Women.

This is Anna, my Grandmother, and I have chosen her as my Inspirational women for International Women's day 2019.    Anna, my Grandmother was born in April 1907 on the East Coast of Italy, in another time, and another place, long before I was even thought of.  I have chosen my Grandmother today  because she was a strong confident women who had a hard life with no money no decent home and sometimes no shoes on her feet as she used to tell me.  My Grandmother got married at 18 in Pink and had four daughter's the youngest of whom was my own Mother.  My Grandfather was a farmer/soldier and when the second world war broke out my Grandfather was in the war, my Nan as I always called her, was on her own in war torn Italy with four daughter ages ranging from 13 downwards to 6 years old,  if we think of poverty in our towns and cities today according to my Nan's  standards they where horrendously poor only eating what they could grow and what they could kill.  During the war for…

Youtube's Lucy Wyndham-Read, My New Online Personal Trainer.

I have started a new fitness routine, I have always loved keeping fit since my late twenty's till today, it's funny that when I was at school I hated sports or games as we call it here in the UK, I was always the last or second to last in a race and was never picked for any team I did however excel at Volley Ball (no idea why) and I was good at dance, but of course my school abandoned the volley ball team. at age thirteen, but I did do dance lessons from the age of seven till sixteen, I had  dreams of being a dancer on Top of the Pops, (yeah right).
 From about the age of 27 I started to workout to keep fit DVD's and they worked they really did, and I actually enjoyed it, I became pretty fit and had a nice little figure too,  but alas time has gone on and the years have gone by and by the time I was 35 I started to realize I couldn't do the DVD's that I was doing a few years back and was struggling to do any more that 20 mins each time, and eventually  I started …

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…

Santi's Handmade Jewellery, Review.

This post contains advertising links. 




  Hi to you all, I was approached by the lovely and talented Sofiya Dimitrova, creator of Santi's Homemade Jewellery.  You will find her fantastic website here Santi's handmade Jewellery  Who gifted me a lovely   Earing's   and bracelet set  to review.




 The items arrived very quickly in a cute little pouch trimmed with a ribbon, I love jewellery so as you can imagine I was very excited to open it.   The earnings and bracelet  I was gifted are silver plated, wire wrapped with opal stone beads. The name Opal derives from the Sanskrit word upala which means "precious stone".  Sofiya designed this piece so it would go with any Summer outfit.
 I loved the pure but subtle tones of the blue against the silver, and that the beads change colour in the light  the earnings are wired so delicately, and with care, you can tell that Sofiya takes great pride in her work.  Each piece has been lovingly handcraft, most of her pieces are made …
