Since When Have We Gotten So Cynical.


What a World we know live in, I in my Wisdom have always been aware that there a some very selfish people living on this Planet of ours, but I have just kept out of there way and have had nothing to with them, preferring to make friends with good people, well I hope they are good, I looked around on the train today, and just saw blankness, no expression, or a head in a phone to scared to look up, if a giraffe in a Pink tutu walked in their head would not have moved from what they were looking at on the little screen. What the hell are you looking at a Giraffe in a pink skirt has just walked in!
          I saw a worrying documentary on the BBC a few days ago about how we cannot stop looking at our  smart phones and people have a real addiction that affects the way that they behave and live there life, I must say it freaked me out, I myself turn my phone off at around eleven PM and do not turn it on again till the next morning I must admit  it's one of the first thing's I do when I wake up check my messages and my social Media may be I shouldn't take it to bed and leave it downstairs, I have though purposely  not taken my phone out with me for an hour or two, so I could get some peace, when I told a friend this she said "what if something happens?"  What the hell did we do before we had Phones we didn't communicate by Sonar.
        I just think that nobody cares about anyone anymore, I still care and I hope deep down people think more about a  Human being that is standing next to them  than your smart phone in you hand  but I am not so sure  I have seen people freak out because they have no access to the Internet for a few days, like someone has just chopped of their arm and threw it in the bin.
        I like the fact that I am still humble and kind and I can't stand to show off I hope it comes across on this Blog, I write this Blog  because I love to write and would love people to enjoy what they are reading, not because I am saying look at me look at me, I blame reality television,  it gives you a false sense of security that anyone can be famous without talent or hard work,  but I just see each new reality star have a problem because they have become famous to quickly and end up in some rehab.  I wonder what life will be like in ten years time and if society will turn around and turn it's  back on life's  selfishness or will we be worse.

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 …
