Well it had to be done didn't it!  I have seen so many YouTube posts saying Vloganuary I am going to do my own Bloganuary and why not I hear you say.  It's really a little post about my goals for 2019, I don't want to bore you with my diet and exercise goals but I will he he.  It's what my Bloganuary is all about so lets start with excersie   I do a power walk everyday about 20 mins or so and the workout with a YouTube fitness expert, but as from today I am doing the 50 mins workout with the trainer and not the 30 min one. I have pigged out over Christmas and I looked in the mirror and I have bloody spots not a lot a couple of big one's and a few little one's, I know they are what I call my Chocolate and Cheese spots.
        The Chocolate  tub is nearly empty the only ones left are the coconut one's and the ones with nuts left in which I hate. So everyone now knows who's been at the chocs, Guilty. I do have some cheese left but no more crackers yipee, just half a Panettone  to go and Christmas temptation is over, so I completed the 50 min exercise  this afternoon it went OK my readers OK I struggled a little at the end, but I will repeat if left alone tomorrow, I really like to exercise it helps with mental health, physical health and I sleep much better. I do like to be in the fresh air though and that's why I walk to. It's really cold here in the United Kingdom at the moment I love the cold air on my face it's so refreshing.
       I must must declutter my wardrobe and take stuff to the charity shop, I was bought some clothes for Christmas and I opened  the doors of my wardrobe to put them in and I stuffed them into a corner, I can't believe I did that but I have to sort out my old clothes. I have read some really great blog posts from other bloggers about decluttering and I am so jealous I don't want everything colour coded or alphabetical just tidy, start the New Year with a peaceful uncluttered home.   Oh I just remembered I have two frozen yule logs still in the Freezer. Oh No.


  1. Interesting post! Thanks for sharing about Bloganuary.

  2. Embrace your oily skin girly! I always had oily, spotty skin but now I'm older, everyone's always amazed when I tell them my age. I never found that eating healthily made the blindest bit of difference either so go ahead, enjoy those yule logs :D except maybe not both at once ;) x

    1. Thanks you are so right I do think I have eaten far much much rubbish though, yes the yule logs are mine plus the apple pie I found at the back of the freezer this afternoon . XX

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

One day I will get him on the blog, you will see.       But it was…

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…

                        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…
