Beautiful Day, And Why Should We Empower People.

Woke up this morning looked out of the window to a surprise fog, there was a low ground fog and a stunningly beautiful Blue sky, I crawled out of bed and got ready for the day, not such a rushed busy day as of late, I could relax a little more, after lunch I decided to sit and work outside in my garden to take advantage of the  strange October heat, but before that I took a power walk and noticed the beautiful leaves that are starting to fall on the the ground I love the colour's  this time of year.







Why Should We Empower People.

I was just watching the evening news and there was an item on  somebody empowering others, you here it all the time, don't get me wrong  it's nice to hear that other's are now giving out the strength and there time and energy into helping other's get stronger and I like the way it may inspire other's to do the same, but at the same time I worry that it will all get's to much, I like the fact that while other's in today's society with it's reality based TV program's and everything handed to us more or less on a plate, even if if we do have to work very hard for it, life is easier than our predecessors in general, but I am secretly a little sick of it, is that wrong for me to say? if I was going to play devils advocate, who gives us the right to empower yes, you have been successful in what you have done in life  but why do we have to empower someone else to be like you, I hear that word all the time is it our right to do our duty to our fellow human?  and not think we can get there on our own, are you saying with a big neon sign "look at me, look at me I'm Brilliant look what I have done, you can do it to" but do we want to be like you? What if we want to be empowered to do are own thing quietly, and still feel as successful and not go on about it and that's enough for us, what is wrong with being empowered quietly and not hold up a massive sign saying "Me, Me, Me"  I just worry that we will get sick of the word then what will we use then?  People have always been empowered through history or we wouldn't have our heroes. We in this century  never truly owned the word.

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…
