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?

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…
