The Great British Christmas Countdown Has Officially Begun.


  I  woke up this morning and stretched out in my lovely warm bed, and switched on the TV, it was a little early and still very dark outside, so I thought a little breakfast TV might be in order, you don't really watch breakfast TV do you,  but I will have it on in the background, after ten minutes I had that overwhelming sense of guilt, like I am awake and can't just lie here, so I decided to kick of the covers and put my feet on the floor, my God it was so cold, what the hell I ran to the bathroom and that little panic began who didn't set the heating to come on Bastards, well I ran down the stairs and pushed the switch, the house clicked and the thaw out officially had begun.
  After I got dressed and ready to venture out, when the hell did it get so damn cold it was pouring with rain outside and freezing rain at that, Winter is so here I thought I bought a new glove and hat set at the weekend that is really going on today, I  walked past the calendar and realised it's the 27th of November, shock horror it's nearly December all I could think of was Christmas is coming Christmas is coming and I have done nothing, I was going to wait till after my nephew's Birthday which is on the 7th of December, to start anything Christmassy.  But no I think I will start the Great British Christmas countdown now, so during my lunch today I went online and bought about six presents and some of them still had black Friday sales still attached, I went home this afternoon feeling pretty pleased with myself and feeling like I had started the mammoth task. I still of course have loads more to do but I think I made a great start. I have decided in my head of course, to buy a little what I call Christmas food each week in the food shop so I don't have to shit myself near the end  like last year.  I am going to be prepared this time and enjoy the holiday and not be exhausted all the way through,  There is one good thing though I didn't by the cordless shark vacuum £80.00 off on Amazon, that I had my eye on. I was a good girl. 😇

I wish I was ready to begin the task but I'm pushing it off as long as possible. I seem to work better under pressure. Lol Good for you and good luck finishing before the holiday actually arrives.

Good work! You really jumped on it. It's funny how Christmas can bring on a huge panic. Good luck as the holidays get closer!

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…
