Five Tips For The Weekend.

 1,    I am a bit bored of my exercise routine, I do power walking everyday and I feel like I need something else I  want to feel a bit bendy if you know what I mean my dear readers, let me clarify I want to feel more supple I think that was the word I was looking for I thought about Pilates, I used to do Yoga about ten years ago, it did make me more bendy  but I found it so boring and ultimately stopped.  I think I will try and find some Videos on Youtube to see if  I like it.

 2,    I need to do more work on my blog, I do post as much as I can, and I really love writing, I hope you enjoy reading it, but I think I need to do more technical work on it, I have let that side go a bit, when I first started it I didn't have a clue what I was doing, I had never embarked on an adventure like this before, I really try to stay away from the bloggey type blog that you see everywhere  I wanted to write to my readers on a more personal level, I do interchange my posts between more article type posts to a little more light hearted fashion and home and a bit of food mixed in. But I think I would like to come up with some more original stuff for that I need some peace to think, something which is lacking here at the moment.

3,   Household tip 1,    I don't like the smell of bleach in my house so a lady I know said use a dishwasher tablet in your mop bucket, when it melts mop the floors it will give a faint smell of disinfectant and will clean the floors too, so that is what I have been doing for a couple of weeks and I must say it really works.

4,  Household tip 2,  Another tip from the same lady, if your Champagne goes flat drop a raisin in and the fizz will come back, what I was wondering who the hell has Champagne, does it work with Prosecco ?

5,  Must Must binge watch Killing Eve this weekend it was recommend by my special friend, and I have sneakily had a half an hour little look this afternoon and so far it looks so good, so that is what I will be doing this weekend my Dear One's.

Hope you enjoyed the tips, and  have a good weekend everyone. love Mimi 💋.

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 …
