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!

Happy belated Easter to you also, 19 degrees is high here in the UK for Easter time, it got to 25 Sunday, our houses are designed to keep heat in so sleeping was awful, Winter can get to -7 in the North where I live. Thanks so much for your comment lovely X

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…

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 …

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 …
