How Did You Feel Turning 40 And I Ate All The Halloween Sweets.

                                             My 40th Birthday Party Blowing Out My Candles.

 This post is a little more personal it's about turning 40, that was five years ago now for me, today I really felt my age I was very tired and just couldn't muster up the strength to do anything I think I have been over working, it's a Saturday night and I am sitting on my new red Acer computer writing a blog post I just  can not be bothered to go out I just feel like being boring,  I have just eaten some home made soup and bread and butter, and then I will finish this blog post, one thing I don't mind doing,  and then put my feet up with a film, not sure which one yet maybe the one from my film list I wrote about in Saturday's post. I am just thinking shall I go and eat the rest of the Halloween sweets, Oh come on we've all done it.
   So back to the post turning forty, how was it for you for those of you who have was it painful or did you care, I know a lot of my friends dreaded it I on the other hand didn't mind one bit, I didn't mind turning 40 I hated turning 30 more because it mean I had to grow up.  I had a party that I didn't really want, ended up having a row with a friend and had two many people at my party that I couldn't cope,  because |I was born the first week  of August I thought everyone would be on there holidays so myself and my Sister invited too many people  and everyone turned up, nice because people cared but I am not very good at  being the centre of attention and deep down very shy and not that confident. But in my fortieth year  I felt that I had finally grown up, and I felt like a grown up,  yes I am childish at times like everyone else but I was now a mature women, and you know that's OK with me so don't dread it  embrace it, Oh and a little word of warning my  Ladies  your sex drive goes up.  It really does. What do you think about that?

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

Bath, Bed and Breakfast.

After a very tiring week, work work work appointment after appointment I  just want to relax and soak in the bath, go to bed in some lovely bedding I bought last weekend and have a full English Breakfast on a Saturday Morning, There is nothing like it, I have put some of the products I used below. Enjoy and Happy Weekend folks. 💋 

Bath  I used Sanctuary Spa Body Wash, it was so relaxing and the smell of sandalwood and jasmine was lovely, and the essential oils made my skin so soft. Here is the link Sanctuary spa.

Bed  I bought this bedding from Dunelm last weekend I couldn't wait to use it I think it's so pretty I love the subtle colours  you can find it here Dunelm bedding.

Breakfast  Yummy scrambled egg, sausage, beans bacon, hash brown, and a half a tomato, just what I needed, I don't eat this everyday just at the weekend sometimes or when someone lovely will make it for me.

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…

Ten Best Blogging Tips

When I started my blog in July 2018, I never realised how much work being a blogger actually was, looking back I was so naive, I have read other blogs over the years and thought, that's easy  I can do that, but I was wrong it takes hours of work, don't get me wrong I love it, it has ups and downs but the sense of satisfaction every time I work and publish any blog post is tremendous. My blog is my online baby and I have to nurture and make it grow. So I have compiled ten top tips  to help  the blogger from my point of view.

3,  Make sure your blog page is attractive to reader's, a nice looking font good Ph…
