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…

Help, I Got Lost In A Maze.

Its been so cold the last few days, all I wanted to do stay indoors and keep warm, but No I decided with my loved one to go out for the day, "Lets go to a Maze" I said "What the F......." was the reply "Why?" was the next reply.  I found a stately home I wanted to go and see I love seeing them, makes me feel like I am in Downton Abbey, another time, another world.
   So we packed up the car put on two jumpers my big coat hat scarf and gloves, and off we went. It was freezing cold, what the hell were thinking, I have been to one maze before but but it was little and yes, you could see over the top what is the point of that, but this one there is no way you could see over the top, I was actually nervous and a excited, then I thought what if we can't get out, how embarrassing, would that be. We went around the gardens first which were stunning even on a cold January day.  But the hour had finally come the dreaded maze, with fear and treperdation we st…

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 …

A TRUE STORY.

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …
