What Did You Want To Be When You Grew Up?

              Do you remember a time when you were young and life was carefree and innocent, and we had our own dreams. Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up, I do and they are still vivid in my day dreaming times secretly deep down I still think maybe one day I can achieve them.
             I wanted to be a dancer, I had a very graceful and talented Mother  who was a all ballroom dancer, I was in awe when my Mother took to the dance floor and I watched her dance,  The Waltz, The Tango, The Quickstep etc....... her feet gliding across the  shiny polished floor as her feet would rise and fall.   I wanted to be just like her and started to ask her to teach me, myself and my older Sister would be in our Kitchen in our family home and my Mum would show us the steps and we would practice together for hours it is one of my most treasured  childhood memory's, she would also be quite strict when we didn't raise our arms or  we were clumsy and not graceful enough,I was told once I danced like a farmer because I wasn't light enough on my feet , I find it funny now but then at 8 years old I got upset and sulked.  Mum then enrolled me into a local dance school  and I started on my Tap and Jazz and Disco lessons I was happy and really wanted to do it, but I started to get bullied by two older girls who decided I was their target,  unfortunately I had to leave the class and it put me off for a long time.  I grew up and my dancing dreams started to fade and school, my mates and Boys became my focus.
    My love for dancing has never faded though and even though my Mother has gotten older and can't dance the way she used to anymore  I still remember the good old day's and deep down a secret longing for my dreams might still come true. I wish.

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?
