                                Shock, Over 40 single and no kids, what's wrong with you?


                                                 I am 45 next week, and while I am turning another year older, I am well into middle age while I feel sixteen in my head, sometimes I have to remind myself I am not.  I am single, shock horror and childless even worse, people sometimes look at me like there is something wrong with me, I don't have two heads and and last time I checked no horns are sticking out, others pity me, secretly thinking "there must be something wrong with her",  I am neither single or childless by choice, it's just worked out like that ,  I didn't plan it that way, I was,  out of all my friends voted the first one  of us to get married and have kids, looking back now I think how wrong our teenage selves were  I don't know why but my life has not turned out the way I wanted it, funny that.
                                                 
                                                I know I would make a great Wife and Mother, and sometimes I do feel like I have missed out.  I do feel judged,  no one says anything, or maybe I am to harsh on myself, and even guilt comes into my mind, why guilt? Is that a reasonable emotion? I do put it to the back of my head.  Don't get me wrong I am day to day a happy optimistic person, and I do hope one day if I still have enough time tick tock, tick tock, that as my mother says pull your socks up you are starting to get well
past it, charming, things may still turn out for me.
                                                   I look at other people with there 2.4 kids and there happy snaps from there holiday's on social media, and I am envious, but are they truly happy?  is anyone ever satisfied with what they have, we humans are never satisfied with what we have we always want more. my friends moan they are tired, they have no money, they need some time to themselves, but would they be me?  don't think so.  On the good side I have a nice home, money in the bank can go out whenever I like and come home when I want.     
                          But sometimes I think why can't I have the dream, maybe hopefully it won't be much longer, I went to a palm reader who told me I would have 3 kids but that was 15 years ago, it's been such a long wait , I will just have to pull my socks up.   Oh well I will just have to make do for now.

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?

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…

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…

                        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…
