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.

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?

I came to the conclusion of, why am I worrying life is to short just go with it. And I did.

                        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…
