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 he turned two.   Today we drove to the coast, just to feel the very early spring time air in our hair and on our faces, it was so refreshing and made a lovely change we had fish and chips for lunch they were so yummy but a bit filling so I needed a nice walk on the beach, felt really weird that I had my shoes off in the warm sun. It was really busy, I know the children are off school this week here, so I think that everyone has the same idea as us. I really wish the weather would last a bit because everything feel so much nicer. There is a down side though we have quite large grass fires going on  the moors a few miles outside the town, hope they are not as bad as they were in the Summer.

  I have taken a few snaps over the last few days, they were taken on my mobile, so not that great quality, I hope you forgive me, I did my best.




Amazing what a timer and a mobile phone  perched on your bag can take.

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…
