Hi all,  as the title says's my blog is a month old Yay,  time has gone by so fast I have really enjoyed writing for you all.  I started writing when I was in my  late teens, I read tons and tons of books when I was a teenager I used to get so lost in the words and languages of novel's, and even got carried away in fantasy land and imagine I was there in the story.  Over the years I have written bit's  and pieces, but time has gone on and life takes over( I am sure you all know what that is like), a few months ago I thought about starting a blog, I said to myself I can't, that's only for teenagers and people in there twenty's isn't it?   I had to give myself a good talking to and looked into it, I knew what I wanted to call it, a title I have had in my head for years, I did some research and thought I can do that, what have I got to lose, while I admit I am still very much a novice in the blogging world, I learn something new every single day.  Thank you for those who have stuck with me so far you are very kind, and join me into the future. 
   I have been told today that people are having trouble following me, the button doesn't seem to work, I will rectify that as soon as I can. love Mimi X

                                        What I Did Today.

  I had a nice relaxing day I was woken up early, and had a little lie in she says sarcastically, 20 mins later I was up and around, tidying and making beds, I had planned to make a Chicken Stew the night before and was determined to get it done in the morning, I was successful at that task and had a fragrant and simmering stew on the hob for 11am.  This afternoon I went for a lovely walk with my Sister and Niece  and her very big Puppy ( yes he is a puppy believe it or not)  my handsome Prince Barney Bear.  He is still being trained so he likes to pull, he is a very playful and intelligent dog  and I love him so much. The weather was quite windy today and colder than it should be for August, after all the heat we have been having it actually made a pleasant change,  we went for a walk in the woods  we could still smell the smoke from the forest fires that has been going on around us for weeks and still is burning, Barney's loved every minute of it,  his  little face intrigued by everything he saw and heard   around him, it was so nice to get of the house and have some exercise, after we arrived back  we warmed up the stew and had it with some crusty bread and butter just what we needed and Barney Bear thought so to.

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…

FAMILY FRIENDLY INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL FOR ALL.  It is a weeks long family friendly celebration which is full of music and dance and culture at the Llangollen Eisteddfod, I was born and have  grown up in North Wales and the Eisteddfod has been a huge part of my life, I have always known that the  people of the area as a child look forward to the festival every year, and it is part of Welsh culture and beyond.
