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.

International Women's Day. Who Is Your Inspirational Women.

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…

Santi's Handmade Jewellery, Review.

This post contains advertising links. 

  Hi to you all, I was approached by the lovely and talented Sofiya Dimitrova, creator of Santi's Homemade Jewellery.  You will find her fantastic website here Santi's handmade Jewellery  Who gifted me a lovely   Earing's   and bracelet set  to review.

 The items arrived very quickly in a cute little pouch trimmed with a ribbon, I love jewellery so as you can imagine I was very excited to open it.   The earnings and bracelet  I was gifted are silver plated, wire wrapped with opal stone beads. The name Opal derives from the Sanskrit word upala which means "precious stone".  Sofiya designed this piece so it would go with any Summer outfit.
 I loved the pure but subtle tones of the blue against the silver, and that the beads change colour in the light  the earnings are wired so delicately, and with care, you can tell that Sofiya takes great pride in her work.  Each piece has been lovingly handcraft, most of her pieces are made …
