The Magic Of December.


   I sat on the bus today  the weather was warmer but cold at the same time, what I mean by that is I was freezing in the house, but when I stepped outside it was suspiciously warm, how did that happen.  I on the other hand dressed like the beast from the East was about to strike, I had some very funny looks not to mention the bus had it's heating on full I couldn't wait to get off it.
        The reason I was on the bus my dear readers was I was going in to town to buy a birthday present and card and perhaps a little Christmas shopping while I was there,. my lovely nephew will be fourteen by the time you read this today, I can't believe how big he has gone I still remember kicking Autumn leaves around with him in the park  now he's a teenager with a breaking voice a young man in the making I am so proud of him.  I know he likes cars and Harry Potter so I will have a look around for that, I have seen some lovely Christmas outfits in the shop windows, but I couldn't possibly I must stick to the task in hand. I bought two presents I think he will love.
    I have three birthday's the month of December along with Christmas and New Year so a very busy time is this month.   I love December and I am so sure you feel like I do dear readers I love it but I am becoming over whelmed and tired, it's like everyone has gone nuts,  I know everyone is tying up their  loose ends in time for the end of the year, it's almost a feeling of something is about to happen and you have a long wait, I am excited to put up the decorations maybe this weekend I am not sure everyone thinks I am late, but I love to decorate the tree, I picked up the hand made Red and White wooden ornaments this lady was making for me yesterday I am  so pleased with them.  I mentioned them in an earlier post. I put up a picture what do you all think?

      I can't wait to put them on the tree and see what they look like I bought some new fairy lights because I think my set broke last year, my just in case lights, as I call them.  Don't get me wrong readers I do think this time of year is magical like someone  is about to sprinkle fairy dust over the world, well that's what I think and hope anyway.  I just hope I don't have my usual New Year's Eve cold that I seem to have nearly  every year does anyone else have that problem? No I am going to have a peaceful hopefully and joyful please Christmas. We will see what happens.
    On another note Christmas fashion, I must write a future post about, there is so much great stuff out there I need to take notes and put some ideas up here.  I did come across this great website called Hounded, they have a collection of oversized clothes, and women's fashions  they are so cool I haven't see anything else around,  their stuff is unique  check out their website here Hounded   I have a discount code for 10% off for my readers just type in  Mimi10  if you fancy anything from their range.

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 …
