My Obsession with Kate Bush



  1978, I was five years old, and in my Parents living room on our wooden television set, a Goddess appeared on our screen she had a white dress on dark long wild hair, and was doing a strange dance, to a song that started" Heathcliff",  Yes it was my heroine Kate Bush, I became obsessed with her, and that obsession has lasted  my entire life who would have thought I would have my hair like her's,  wild and unkempt like me as a child, wild and unkempt,  usually barefoot up a tree or racing the boys around on my sister's yellow chopper bike, I wanted to be the heroine in her songs I spun around over and over again copying the dance steps in front of my very loving audience consisting of my brother's sister and parents and grandparents, and sometimes my dollies and teddy's.  As I grew up I had some birthday money and I bought my very first Album it was Hounds of  Love, I still play it all the time I love that album so much and no other artist has ever done anything so unique, I was in love with the video that dance obsession become so strong that my Mother enrolled me into a Dance Academy at the age of ten we used to get the Double Decker bus into  town and there I was with my tap shoes on.  Other artist's came along that sort of temporally replaced her Madonna being one them but I still secretly loved good old Kate, she would never let me down, and she never has when I was a teenager it's wasn't very cool to like her so I kept her a secret for years, and was listening to Kylie Minogue and people like that, but at night on came the Kate Bush tapes, hoping my friends wouldn't ring the door bell and hear the music blasting  from my teenage bedroom.   Oh Kate I love you so much  please could you tour more so I can go to one this time and please oh  please release  some more music damn it.

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

One day I will get him on the blog, you will see.       But it was…

Dear Meghan,



                        I hope you are well, and that all is well with your pregnancy, I hope you are not stressed and are resting in the last few days of this magical time, and your Husband is looking after you, I am sure he will he is very protective of his new family.
                        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…
