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.

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 …

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
