I've Been A Good Girl I Have been Gardening.

                                                   11th August 2018

                                  I have been a very good girl today,  "what have you been doing?" you might ask I have, Yes wait for it been  gardening, Myself and the  use of a spade don't usually get along, but I do like a nice garden who doesn't, so today I  decided to get the old GB, Gardening bug going.
                                   Oh no I hear you cry not a boring old post about your bloody garden, if only you knew. 
                                 I was informed by a friend of mine who is a landscape gardener, that my garden looked like a shit hole. Thanks I thought your not getting my business now, bugger off. Only Joking..... 
                                I knew it couldn't stay the way it was looking so I thought right, I bought some new tools because the other's  were very rusty and quite dead, I decided to dig and scrape and pull. there were so many damn weeds I wanted cry.  But I cleared quite a lot then it was a trip to the local Garden Center and asked how can I stop the pesky weeds, they replied you can't,  but if you put down this sheeting and put some slate or bark down that should help,  so they bundled  a load of stuff in the boot of the car and said that will be sixty seven pounds eighty please. WHAT!
                             So this afternoon I have been working very hard and, I did have help of course you didn't really think I would be on this mission on my own. we have cleared one side, we have the other side to go we also planted some new tree's at the front, a couple of weeks ago they are growing nicely after we were told they might die because of the extreme heat, we have been having 
                                I put a few pics below of my results plus my cat  Binkey has  photo bombed one of them plus a bit of my finger got in the way, I am tired now just want to eat relax and rub my aching muscle's but I did enjoy myself and when I look out of my kitchen window I can say I did that, and feel proud of myself.   Here's to next weekend......................Hopefully. PS I was told today that my blog name sounded like a porn site, and they must be people must  disappointed when they click on it.  How dare they. 😉

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

                        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…
