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.
     My first teenage romance, we met at the subway station how romantic and his first present to me was a 12" vinyl copy of Madonna's Borderline, which I found the other day hence this post.  we broke up three times in six months once  because I accused him of fancying Sharon(miss popular) Davies and once because his mates interfeared   and once when he met his friends instead of me.
 


  We spent four years being childhood sweethearts, long hot Summer days teddy bears and love hearts for presents, laughter and not a care in the world. At 19 everything changed he wanted to get engaged, and I said we were to young and wanted to wait, until we completed our studies and got jobs. He wouldn't listen and we started to argue, and one horrible day we had a nasty argument in the street, were he told me he hated me and that was that. My heart broke I literally felt it brake, and  I cried and cried at  Whitney's Houston songs.  I left for Italy that Summer and came back in September a different person. I grew up. I think most people remember their first love it's part of life's pleasure and pain. The only thing is I hope he doesn't bloody read this.

This is such a fun post! I think we all remember our first love at least to some degree, and reflecting on it can bring a smile to my face. Sure, they may not be the lasting love, but they help to shape who we are today

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…
