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.

My Summer Roller Coaster.

Hi to all my dear blog readers, sorry I have not been around for a few months, I had to take time off. I have had one of worst summers of my entire life, so as you can appreciate this post is the hardest I have ever had to write.
  In the Summer I lost my beloved Mother, she had been ill for a while but over the summer weeks she got worse and died at the end of the season, even though it was expected it was still a massive shock,  at times I cant believe it has happend and other times life is normal, and other times the sense of loss is unbearable. I lost my best friend the women who knew me  best of all didn't judge me and was the wisest person on the planet whose advice will never be forgotten and passed on, I was never going to write on the blog ever again, thinking I would have a blank head and never being able to get my  feelings out and turn them into words.  But my younger Brother said you need to go back on your blog it will do you good and distract you, you are creative …

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

A TRUE STORY.

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 …

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
