February Record Warm Weather, And Ice Cream On The Beach.

Hi all hope you are all doing really well, The weather here has been fantastic,  temperature's in North Wales were I live, has been 20 degrees, 20 degrees in February wow, listening to the news they are record temperatures for the UK,  it feels like spring and the skies are Blue without a cloud in sight and the flowers are fully blooming, the past few days people are just so much happier with smiles on their faces amazing what a little bit of warm sunshine can achieve. 
   I have been mainly outside the past few days planning how to upgrade my Winter garden, standing there with my hands on my hips making silent plans in my head, but maybe I will hold off slightly I have a funny feeling the UK will pay for the lovely weather, some snow storm or Beast from the east 2.  It's been so nice to take my power walks without freezing my arse off or getting soaked in the rain.




  Myself  and my sister took a good long walk with her beloved and handsome dog Barney it was his Birthday and…

My Naughty Neighbour.

This post is auto fictive to protect identities.







  November 2015, moving in day, the day was dark and raining, I drew back my curtains in my bedroom to find a moving truck with two men in blue overalls, busy in their work back and too from the truck to the house,  carrying boxes of stuff and shiny wooden furniture the repetitiveness made me bilious.   "Oh new neighbours", I shouted wondering and thinking of the mysterious human beings who would be gracing the house.  Very very quickly I would find out exactly who they were.        In the new year I had a lovely invitation to a house warming but that night I had another engagement so I declined.   You know dear readers when someone just gives you the chills when you see them but you don't know why, that's exactly how I felt each and every time I encountered the particular person of who I am writing about, I couldn't tell you why I just was on my guard, I often think Women have a radar of sorts and can spot a creep v…

The Benefits Of Eating Porridge.

                This is not a sponsored  post.



 Since I was young I have eaten Porridge for breakfast, coming from an Italian household  it was a very odd thing to do, my Father would never touch it, but my Mother used to love it and used to make us hot bowl of it before we went to school, especially during the Winter months, we  would happily skip along  to school and endure the cold British Winter's.   As I got into my late teens it was no longer cool to eat it, in fact I don't think I ate breakfast for years, as I got older and my body was shouting feed me first thing in the morning I started to realise the value of nutrition, and started eating my childhood bowl of porridge again.
   First thing in the morning before the day has officially begun I go and grab a bowl and some skimmed milk my oats and blast them in the microwave with a little touch of sugar and I am set up for the day.   Gone are the days when I used to use a saucepan and stirred and stirred, I now blast min…

Storm Erick's destruction, and lunch at Frankie and Bennys

Hi all, a brand new week is here, I had a very stressful last week, all because of someone else's incompetence and I actually had a fight with a stranger who decided to be abusive with my 83 year old Mother I had never been so disgusted in my life, I hate losing my temper and it left me feeling lightheaded and I  couldn't sleep, but I had to protected her. The next day Storm Erik began over the UK and the noise of the 80 mph win gusts and the torrential rain were horrendous, I didn't sleep all night, the next morning I awoke to my dust bins all over the place rubbish scattered all over the floor  and my shed roof lying in big bits on my garden patio. Brilliant I thought even the fucking weather hates me this week, as I was drinking a hot cup of tea my pervert neighbour (more about him another time) came running up to my bay window shouting "your shed roof is down, your shed roof is down", "I know" I replied.







   I so needed cheering up I felt so stresse…

Are You Your Star Sign?

I have loved Astrology ever since I was a child my Mother and older Sister was obsessed  with their  Horoscope's reading them in the magazines, wondering if they will come true, I went a little further and studied it, buying books on the subject and and learning about moon signs and rising signs.  So I decided  to write a post entitled are you your star sign.

My star sign is Leo,  The lusty lion, no not really that's my little joke there sounds good though, I thought so anyway.  Leos are supposed to be warm, generous and loving  fun with an air of royalty about them, yep that's me he he he. Looks wise Leo's are supposed to have a  big Maine of  hair, large eyes and beautiful face, Yes yes yes to all three, you see what I am doing here readers.😁 Worst negative trait is being bossy, No not me at all. 
   There are three types of Leo's  the bossy know it all show off, the quiet    Leo and the half in half, I am definitely the half in half.  Leo's in love li…

Love At First Bite.

Do you remember your first love, my lovely readers, I bet you do. I remember mine, it was Summer 1988 and I was introduced to this strawberry blonde 6 ft 15 year old with a name beginning with M(better not say his real name) he was the new boy at our comprehensive school. I had heard all the girls fancied him and he had already snogged a few of my friends, so I didn't like him already I thought he was a lush.  I was the last one out of our group of friends who hadn't  met him  yet, and I was glad because I fancied someone else anyway. Ooh Get me.
      I walked up the road to meet my friends after I had eaten my tea and there in the distance was this tall teenage boy, I looked at him and thought "Is that him, is that what all the bloody fuss was about" as I was about to talk to my friend standing next to me, this boy or M, caught my eye and was staring in my direction, and I can safely say readers, that my legs went to jelly and I felt sick. I was in love.
