My Fantastic Bonfire Night Party.


    Hi how was your weekend, mine was good, I went to a great fireworks party last night with my special one and some family and friends, I usually don't like the fire works so much, but this one was really cool, they had more of the pretty fireworks rather than those awful big bang one's you know the one's,  they are so loud you think a war has started. It wasn't that cold but it did start to rain a little, which was a shame it didn't ruin the atmosphere, but the party still went on,  I bought with me the tomato soup I made earlier in the day see my earlier post Bonfire night treats you will find the recipe here, we had it in big earthly mugs outside with some home made bread my friend  made the bread it tasted so delicious, it was so good by the bonfire.  People really liked it, they must have done because it all went very quickly.

      Sorry guys I had no make up on,  I promised Mr Special that I would put the picture's up on the blog.

   It was so nice to be with my family and friends  chatting and watching the really pretty fireworks, I think it is nice to get together, we live such busy lives that we forget to take time out and just truly relax.   I really liked  the sparkly fireworks  ones that go up and twinkle like little star's when they, the nosy ones can stay  in the box.
I took some photo's but it's so hard to take photo's of the fire works so sorry for the poor quality. I only  had my phone on me so I did my best. I only got one good of the fireworks the rest were shit.

      The start of the evening the children was so excited that they were noisy but well behaved I was so proud of them,  they did as they were told because they knew that fireworks could be dangerous mishandled.   When the display started their  little faces pointed towards the dark sky with their mouths open in wonderment, you can't put money on that, their reactions you couldn't buy that, I think it's a wonderful part of life.  I love this time of year there is something special about the Autumn celebrations.   I hope you all had a happy and safe time what ever you did. Mimi 💋

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…
