December Wish List. And My Date Night Update.

  1st of  December has arrived and to me this time of year Winter has really begun, yesterday I bought some beautiful  Red and White wooden ornaments I found for my tree in a  lovely craft shop, the Lady that  owns it makes them buy hand, so I ordered 8 different shapes I thought they were so beautiful, she will ring me when they are ready to pick up, I will show you all here when they are ready. The town is really looking so festive and now I have changed my calendar, I am starting to feel that Christmas vibe excitement ever so slightly starting to creep in, while I was walking around town  I thought of a another topic for my blog my December wish list I try not to do the boggy thing, but now and again it  won't do any harm. and I will update you on how my Romantic Date Night went.

So here is my wish list.

1, I want a brilliant Christmas tree, every year I am jealous of the stunning trees everyone has, I always have good intentions, and I plan it shall I use  tinsel or not, shall I colour scheme or not. I start the tree off well and by the end I stuff all the stuff in the box on and |I rush it, but I am not doing that this year I refuse to. I will have a lovely posh tree even if it kills me.

2,  No tacky lights, nothing will flash in my home, not the lights anyway 😲 I have decided I do not want to be bombarded with flash flash flash and a Santa that Farts and pulls his pants down.

3,  Eat better than I have been doing the last couple of weeks I have been so busy, that I have had quick meals and that's no good so from now on my body is a temple.

4,  This is a big one for me stop stressing and stay away from negative people. Guess who told me that, my lovely loved one, and he is right I do tend to stress about other people's problems. I have to stop.

5,  And last but not least have a really good and fun last month of the year. I deserve it. I think.

My Friday Date Night.

                                                      He didn't mind me posting this one.

  My  beloved one took me out on Friday Night for a lovely meal I never really do that on Friday's but I thought OK, he wouldn't tell me where we were   going it was a surprise  and I  was excited, we went for a lovely drive, in the dark I might say and ended up in this lovely place not far from us I was going to say where my lovely readers,  but he's  asked me not to identify it, and I said I wouldn't and respect his privacy.    It was a lovely evening and a romantic one, he wanted to treat me because he could see how hard I have been working, he does know about the blog and knows that I love writing for you all  but he doesn't really want to be on it, one day I will persuade him  to appear.  I have taken a few photo's  mainly of food you all know me, by now. 

                              This is the spectacular courtyard outside the restaurant, I had to show you all, 
                                                              I love the lights.

                                                My food it was so yummy.

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?

1,  Start walking more, it's good for your mind and your body, I already do  this I walk everywhere I can.

Four Days In Florence.

Hi I have just returned from a  lovely trip  to Florence in Italy,   we booked it a couple of weeks ago, I never thought we would get flights, but we did and off we went, I surprised myself really, when I book a trip it's usually months in advance and I have to plan every detail I don't know what your like my dear readers, I think it's a confidence thing,  this is the first time I have let someone else plan a trip and I just went with the flow, not like me at all. I came to the conclusion of, why am I worrying life is to short just go with it. And I did.

Ciao Italia

                        I hope you have not been reading all the horrible comments from the trolls, that I have been reading including the awful and ridiculous one's  that has been on your very own Instagram account in the last few days, it just makes me realise  that in reading them, you can tell how much people believe what they read in online newspapers and magazine's  and over social media how ill informed they all are and how all these made up stories are ridiculous so obviously untrue it's laughable, for example your post the other day on your Instagram account where you unfollowed  everyone, if they had bothered reading it they would ha…
