How To Overcome Writers Block.



 I decided sitting here on this very grey Tuesday afternoon that  I could  have sworn that I just heard thunder, but it could be a helicopter passing over I'm not to sure.  Yes I have my dear readers a little bit of writers block, this is the fist time since I started this blog this has happened to me, I have lots of idea's in my head, but getting them down  into a post is another story  I carry around with me a little book and pen and when any idea's come into my head as fast as I can I write them down, and refer back in the future  I have written this blog title three times and deleted it and started again with a different subject, has this ever happened to you my dear one's, when you just can't settle on the one idea, because you have to many little one's in your head, how did you over come it? I find when I start writing it just flows and I don't get stuck, when I start I start and I seem to get to the end.
     I really enjoy writing I always have done since I was little, I always had my head in a book or a pen in my hand, my Mother had to prize me away to come and set the dinner table it used to drive her mad. I have  in the past written a screen play in my early twenty's it was a pilot episode of a comedy that I had submitted to TV  production company who wanted to meet me, but that was years ago and another story. I also wrote song lyrics for a few amateur band's, and edited a fanzine for a very well known band who are no longer together.  I always worry about what people think of my blog and if I am writing about subjects people want to hear  about I have had some great feed back but still those insecurities  pop my head up from time to time.  I do write a little about my personal life now and again, I just hope it doesn't bore people. So I decided to write my five tips on how I  combat writers block when you have it.

1  I  power walk most days and I do it in the fresh air that's when I find my blog post Idea's come into my head as soon as I get home out comes my little book and orange pen and I write them down.

2   Just sit there I find I open my lap top and put my hands on the keys I start to write, thing's usually start flowing and then I can't stop.

3 Try to find a quite space with no one else talking. Sometimes I do put music on in the background. But other's talking is terrible for me, my head gets jumbled

4 Try not to write if you are tired you might come out with something you never meant to write in the first  place. And you may rush your post and it will read like it's rushed.

5 Always and I mean always re read what you have written I do it out loud it sounds so much clearer if you do 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.


1,First when you write a post make sure it is your own original work, you can get inspiration from other's  but never copy anyone else work, a big no no.

2,  Watch out for SEO keywords, you will need to include them in your title and in the body of your work, I am not an expert at SEO, but I just include popular words, but don't compromise your creativity for SEO. 

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