Life Update, My Red Trainers and Meditation Madness.

   Hi all Easter weekend  is upon us, and the weather here in the UK is unbelievably beautiful,  it has been 19 degrees today and it's climbing this weekend, see it's not always raining here. Just thought I would give you all a quick life update, I haven't done one for a while on the blog, I really wanted to put my own mind in order, while updating the blog a little bit more on a personal note.
   Apart from life being life, busy with work and family, far too busy with work and family the last few months  have flown by,  I have been working so hard on the blog and when I started my little online thoughts section, I never thought is would grow the way it has, and the blogging community especially on Twitter are diamonds they have been so friendly and supportive, I decided to share other peoples posts, to help us all out, we need to get the blogs out there, bloggers work so hard on their  own content  I feel like it would be a shame not to share them around for everyone to read, So around twice a week I will Share your blog posts, and sometimes I will Retweet them. So come on and join in when you see the wooden computer and the Sunflowers.
    Talking of blogs I have been privileged to have worked on a couple of sponsored  posts,  One for A recipe book for Quark link is here.Quark recipe book.   and the previous post to this one Dr Love, a review I have done for a Book tour with Book Lure Promotions. I have two more sponsored posts to follow in the next month that I am very excited about. You will find them here on the blog soon.
     Regular readers here will know that I have an obsession with Red Shoes so I nearly peed myself when I found these.

   They are so comfortable, I love them, never had a pair of Red Trainers before, just hope they are not so bright, one things for sure you can see me coming. Read a very early article about my obsession link is here.Red Shoes.

 I have been feeling really stressed lately so I have started Meditating, yes I have.  I used to do yoga and meditation when I was younger but I| stopped I found it really hard to switch my brain off, I think I didn't have the patience back then so I stopped. But the last few weeks I have really got into it, I must admit it took me a few times to really switch off, but I think I have almost mastered it now and I find it really does help me.  It seems to relax my mind which in turn relaxes my body I do about ten minutes a day I use YouTube you can find so many Meditation channel for every one of your needs. Hear from me soon, love Mimi 💋



Happy belated Easter to you! I am always amazed at the difference between US and UK. To us, 19 degrees is something frigid you see in the middle of winter. Right now, it's 64F and chilly :) I don't know what that is in celsius ;)

Have a great week!

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 …

Sponsored  Post.     Make My Blinds.Co.UK


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 …
