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 💋

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.

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…
