The Best Holiday I Ever Had.

         As I packed my Suitcase, full of anticipation of my travels, my stomach doing butterflies over and over, I made sure I had everything like you do before you leave for ten days, you know that feeling of  half excitement half God where am I going.  My Olive colored suitcase I have been meaning to get rid off, but had not gotten around to it, lay on my bed full of folded, yes folded not shoved in clothes,  I stood on my carpet barefoot thinking "what have I forgotten" everything seemed correct and present, I was looking forward to my holiday I needed to escape from the routine of daily life.  Where was I going somewhere exotic Thailand,  Dubai, Mauritius No, where I was going I didn't need my passport,  I was staying in the United Kingdom and it turned out to be one of the best holidays of my life. I was off to The Cotswolds

            Myself  and  a few others decided to rent a lovely cottage  just outside Stratford- upon -Avon, it was so pretty  My room was a bit small I have to be honest, but enough for me. I was hungry and we all drove to what looked like a lovely little pub nothing special, but as I got out of the car, the cars in the car park were all top of the range, Range Rover's, BMW's Mercs etc etc, God were the hell where were we, I was dressed in my flip flops with my hair in a pony tail I wanted to run away and get dressed so I didn't embarrass myself. But the staff were lovely and we were very welcome I was out of place, the place was a footballers pub. But I enjoyed myself immensely. Even with my flip flops on.
                      The next ten days I spent touring and eating my way through The Cotswolds,
 it is a magical place and extremely beautiful We visited all the tourist sights and dipped my feet in the water at Bourton -on -The -Water, visited and ate so many cream teas, I thought I would turn into a scone.
              My  favorite place was Anne Hathaway's cottage it's so romantic and beautiful. Every time you looked or turned your head there was another magical sight.   I  can safely say that beauty was only 2 and a half hours from my house and well worth the visit. If you can give it a go you will never forget the the splendor of it all.

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?

1,  Start walking more, it's good for your mind and your body, I already do  this I walk everywhere I can.

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…

                        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…
