Are You A Good Sister ?


I hope that I am a good Sister, I am one  of four children two boys and two girls, Boy Girl, Girl Boy, my Mum was very lucky to have one of each twice over, I am the third child almost a middle child but not quite,  I adore my two wonderful Brother's who are the best of men, and I try to be both a Big Sister and Little Sister to them both a friend and confidant and a pain in the ass at times, I have only one Sister who I adore, she is 7 years older than me, so she has not only been my big Sister but also my best friend and sometimes surrogate Mum, she taught me how to ride a bike, learn about boys and how to be a mischievous bugger at times, there was no one who would play tricks on people like my big sis, and I learn't from the best, even though I had to wear all her hand me downs, the best present she ever gave me was a copy of Walk Right Now by The Jackson's, for my ninth birthday and she wowed us all with her magic tricks our mouths wide  open at how  magic freeze pop's would appear in her hands until I realised they were in the back of the freezer.
                         I hope I also have been a good Sister, even though I was younger, that my beautiful big Sister would learn a little from me at times, we have laughed together and cried throughout our lives, sometimes we have been through some  very tough dark times, but we stuck together and got through it, when I don't hear from her for a couple of day's I think "what's wrong".
       We very rarely argue I don't know why we pick each other up, I have noticed on occasion that, people have been quite envious of our close relationship may be because they are not that close to their own sibling's, or the fact we laugh and chat when we see each other like we haven't seen each other for years but in reality it was only three day's ago.
                     Life feels better when she is around and I feel genuinely happy and contented, I hope she can say the same thing about me when she reads this. And she will.

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…
