My Furry Babies And I.

                                   The Story Of Duchess And Binkey.

                    I wasn't sure if I was going to write this blog post, but I changed my mind after much deliberation I have two very special people in my life who I would go to the End's of the Earth for and those two special people are my Furry Babies my adorable Cat's,  Duchess and Binkey, in 2011 a Grey Cat appeared  in my garden she was emaciated and looked awful and I thought she was a stray, she was so thin she had a massive head and a little body, her tail was the size of my little finger, I didn't feed her at first, then I couldn't help myself, I started giving her little bits of ham and believe or not bread and butter, she kept coming back and of course I kept feeding her slowly she didn't look so thin any more, surely she must have been a stray, someone couldn't be treating an animal like this,  eventually I called her Binkey and she became my Cat.   After a few weeks of livin it up at my house I found out that Binkey had an owner who lived behind me who couldn't careless about her,  I wanted to cry but I realised I had probably saved her life, she is part of my family and we all love her very much.
                   About six months after, one morning I saw a small trail of blood, part way across my front drive way and then I spotted a cat with half of it's tail hanging off the Cat was scared and ran away,  I didn't know where she had gone,  after two weeks I saw the same Cat in my garden with half a tail eating a bird, she managed to catch, she was also half starved I said surely  Binkey's Ex owner couldn't have had more than one Cat I didn't think that the newly Christened  fluff ball Had a Brother or Sister?  I eventually found out that Binkey had a Sister who was also being neglected, I started to feed her and gave her the new name of Duchess because Prince William had Just Married Kate  MIddleton and she was now a Duchess.
                   Both Cat girls became my Furry Babies and are now safe, happy and content I told the person who used to own them "your Cats are now with me and if you I see you mistreat any other animals I will report you"  Two months later the idiot person walked past with a brand new Puppy
I couldn't believe it "what a Bastard".  They eventually moved house. So I have no idea where they have gone to. 
                   So that is the story of how I came to have my Cats, they are loving and funny and a little bit snobby and we adore them. Binkey is my little Princess who is the boss but as soft as a brush and Mimi is and anxious Cat who loves to talk to you and have a little conversation.  I am so glad they have come into my life and I hope they feel the same way about me.

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…
