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 💋



  1. 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!

  2. 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

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…

                        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…
