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.


The Hooded Man


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.

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…

FAMILY FRIENDLY INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL FOR ALL.  It is a weeks long family friendly celebration which is full of music and dance and culture at the Llangollen Eisteddfod, I was born and have  grown up in North Wales and the Eisteddfod has been a huge part of my life, I have always known that the  people of the area as a child look forward to the festival every year, and it is part of Welsh culture and beyond.
