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. 😉

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 …
