Do You Remember?

This post is dedicated to my family, without them I would be lost, I love you all very much. Mimi 💋

Me I wasn't happy My Younger Brother had stuck chewing gum in my hair.

My new post,  Do You Remember?   has a mixture of fun and nostalgia, this time  I think I will have a break from the deep and meaningful posts for a few days and write something a little more happier for Spring,  I do like the deep posts, don't get me wrong but I just thought I would lighten up the load a bit so to speak. so here is a little insight of my crazy Childhood.
   I grew up in North Wales, my family are Italian an I am the  third out of four mad hatter Children, the one with Dungarees and dark haired plaits tied with Orange cat bobbles on the end wanting to be Elly May  Clampit from the Beverly Hillbillies, those of you who don't know that show google it, it's fantastic.

  My childhood home was on a corner and everyone's child was usually at my house, no idea why maybe it was the Tip Top ice lollies my big Sister used to magic up, when really my Dad bought them and she hid them at the back of our freezer.  My Older Brother was a massive Manchester United fan and I used to sit on his 6ft 2 shoulder's  singing "I'm forever blowing bubbles"

Tip Tops


  I had a massive obsession with Kate Bush, first time I ever saw her she was on Top of the Pops and she was wearing a white dress and singing "Wuthering Hights" I thought she was fantastic and wanted to be her I knew every word to all her songs and learnt all the dance moves. I now own all her albums and play them all the time. I love her so much no one is like her.

Robin of Sherwood was my favourite TV programme, I really fancied Robin who was played by Micheal Praed, I used to eat my tea on a Saturday night and the show used to start at 6.30 pm with my bowl of pink Angel Delight and watch my beloved. I have re watched it in the last few years and it's still so good.   Micheal Pread is now in Emmerdale and he is still hot.

So there my lovely readers is a little glimpse into my childhood some of you, won't remember any of these  things, but I remember them all like they were yesterday they are imprinted on my brain forever no matter when you were born or were, we all have our fond childhood memories that we need to treasure forever.

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.

2, Don't drink bott…

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


  We landed 9.00 am,  after a rather quite flight from Manchester Airport, weather was 17 degrees and a mixture of cloudy and sun.  Very different from the cool rainy UK, we had just left.  Hotel was a small boutique type I did want to say which one it was, but my partner has asked me not to name names, for privacy. reasons and I respect that. One day I will get him on the blog, you will see.       But it was…

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…

                        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…
