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 very quickly.  
   The first incident came not long into the New Year when I had been out for the night, and came in tired and wanting to go to bed, I kicked my shoes off and started to undress I couldn't wait to get my Pyjamas on, I stupidly forgot to close my curtains, it was dark and it looked like no one was outside, I was about to remove my top when I saw from the dark the red glow of a cigarette, and I ran at once to the window and closed the curtains as fast as I could " Shit" I thought how embarrassing. I won't do that again. A few nights later as I was drawing the curtains in my bedroom I remembered I saw the same red glow in the darkness, but this time I switched off my lights went to the other room, and he was leaning against a wall starring into my bedroom not taking his eyes of the window. Ha you didn't get me this time you bugger, I thought I won this battle.  
   A couple of weeks later I noticed a blue light shining in the darkness  to go along with  the red cigarette glow, he had a bloody LED  torch which he was shining straight into my bedroom window trying to catch an eyeful, but I had already figured his motives out, this little performance of his went on night after night, I have to be careful not to undress in front of the window,  even if I walk past the window during the day the head goes straight up starring  I say to myself  "I'm dressed you bugger".
  I should really be comfortable in my own home, he has backed off in the last year or so but  I am still careful, he does try on occasion to strike up a conversation with me, but I just can't,  my stomach churns and I get the chills, vile.  I wanted to tell this story as I referred to him in an earlier post and had requests from some of  you to elaborate, I wanted to write it this way as the person has never gone any further than that and has stopped now. I can't  work out if he is just nosy or creepy or a mixture of both.

This is really creepy!😱 I’m glad they have stopped but that’s horrible for you not to feel safe in your own home. Have you ever told anyone about it?

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…

Help, I Got Lost In A Maze.

Its been so cold the last few days, all I wanted to do stay indoors and keep warm, but No I decided with my loved one to go out for the day, "Lets go to a Maze" I said "What the F......." was the reply "Why?" was the next reply.  I found a stately home I wanted to go and see I love seeing them, makes me feel like I am in Downton Abbey, another time, another world.
   So we packed up the car put on two jumpers my big coat hat scarf and gloves, and off we went. It was freezing cold, what the hell were thinking, I have been to one maze before but but it was little and yes, you could see over the top what is the point of that, but this one there is no way you could see over the top, I was actually nervous and a excited, then I thought what if we can't get out, how embarrassing, would that be. We went around the gardens first which were stunning even on a cold January day.  But the hour had finally come the dreaded maze, with fear and treperdation we st…

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 …

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …
