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.

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.

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

                        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…
