Lovely Day and Fantasy Dinner Party Guest, Princess Diana.


                 21st August 2018                                     

         Woke up this morning,  boiling hot and with a headache, for some reason here in the U.K over night it must have gone up 10 degrees. I quickly got out of bed and pushed open the window's to try to let the non existing breeze in, then  got back into bed, today dear reader's I had a number of appointment's,  this week is going to be one of those weeks I think, you can  almost feel the holiday vibe of the last few weeks ending and it's becoming business as usual, I lay there thinking about this morning and what was going to be said, lets just say by 11 am all went well,  still a lot to think about though.  I had a bowl of soup for lunch just about cleaned up and some of my loved one's came  over to visit, and a surprise visitor which was unexpected,  I spoke to a friend just before tea, to arrange Birthday plans, for her Birthday on Thursday evening, they have all been sorted and we should be having a good time. I am sitting in my Garden at the moment having a lovely drink, it has been very hot today,  but with hot day's comes lovely evening's.

                                               Fantasy Dinner Guest....

           Here is the blogger bit, a friend suggested that I wrote about who I would invite if I could invite anybody dead or alive to a dinner party. So here goes,  I would invite Princess Diana, who else would you invite, She was so beautiful, kind and caring and such a good Mum,  and I bet a real good   laugh, I would ask her so many questions and what she  really thought about what happened to her on the night of 31st of August 1997, because we will never really know will we?    I like the fact she had a vulnerable side that she wasn't afraid to show and brought just for a little  while some stardust to the world, I would also ask her if she is proud of her son's and does she approve of there choice of wife's for her precious  boy's Kate and Meghan, sadly she and me will never ever have been on the same table together, but I was glad to have  seen  her once though,  just after she married  Prince Charles I was about nine I along with my school class waited to catch a glimpse of the new Princess I remember the head was down because she was so shy and her Blonde fringe was in front of her eyes, while The Prince made a speech, and I saw the side of her face with Prince Charles in the back of a posh black car. I can safely say I saw a real Princess when I was nine. I was so excited, and I have never forgotten it.

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 …
