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?

Climate Change Tips, What You Can Do To Help.

With all the talk about climate change, and all the protests in London at the moment, I wanted to do a little research about it, of course I have heard of climate change, since the late eighties, when I first heard of the term The Ozone Layer, we did learn a little about it, but to be truthful it never really went any further than that.  But lately with all the talk around I have been thinking very carefully about this planet we have borrowed to live on.
  I have done a lot of reading on the subject  in the last week and have been surprised how many things I can do to help climate change I  have decided to adopt some if not all of them for myself, some I already have done without realising that I had.  Can you imagine if all of us do our bit for the planet we might be able to save so much of it for future generations. Here are my tips, can you help?
