The Christmas Decorations are up, Watching The Breakfast Club For The First Time.

        I was feeling rubbish yesterday afternoon time of the month girls you know what I mean, and some excited person said "Lets put the Christmas decorations up"  like the big child he is I said "OK" I usually put Christmas carols on and spend a good few hours decorating the tree, and the rest of the rooms , but I just couldn't get excited, so out came the big boxes from the shed, I looked at them on the table  and thought were the hell do I start.  Little by little the tree went up but my tree has to be secured because  I have two cats who love Christmas tree's,  last year it went on the floor twice when I came down in the morning,   I put on my new red and white wooden decorations I had made they look so nice, but I couldn't help my mood I just couldn't get excited may be I need a kick up the arse.       It took us, what I mean is me four hours to do 2 rooms three sets of lights did not work so I have spent £45.00 on new lights last night something I didn't want to do but my decorations looked pathetic without them, someone decorated my little black Christmas tree in my dining room with one bit of tinsel and he didn't even open up the branches and said "that will do" "what I replied" I waited till he went to put some lights in our hallway and redid his efforts. I don't think he noticed.
    So the decorations are half up half down just waiting for a few bits and pieces to arrive next week then my little palace will be all ready for Christmas.

Last night I couldn't sleep and I watched Bridget Jones Baby for the first time, Yep I am the one who hasn't seen it yet, I really like it, but my God everyone looked so much older, probably because we keep watching the first one's over and over again.  So tonight's film night is going to be The Breakfast Club somebody has never seen it he says, my God were has he been, everyone over the age of 40 has seen The breakfast club what's wrong with him, so I will introduce him to one of the best films ever, if you haven't seen it  yet, do,  you can find it on Amazon Prime and Netflix Now.

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?

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.
