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…

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…
