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!

My Messy Pasta Cupboard The Brilliant Film I Watched Last Night and Amazon Where Is My Parcel.

I went to a great pasta shop today and I stocked up on my low supply of Italian pasta, I can't stand the stuff in the Supermarket's, my Palate  being spoiled my whole life by my Italian family and their wonderful cooking. Yes I can tell when I am given supermarket pasta I am afraid you can't fool me.  Somebody who shall remain nameless was supposed to put it neatly in the Pasta Cupboard, and this is how I found it ...........................…

I watched the brilliant Dutch Film last night it was called Obsessed on Amazon Prime, it was about a family who is renovating a run down house in France and of course  lot's of things happen, I don't want to give it away but it was so good check it out if you can.

Bath, Bed and Breakfast.

After a very tiring week, work work work appointment after appointment I  just want to relax and soak in the bath, go to bed in some lovely bedding I bought last weekend and have a full English Breakfast on a Saturday Morning, There is nothing like it, I have put some of the products I used below. Enjoy and Happy Weekend folks. 💋

Breakfast  Yummy scrambled egg, sausage, beans bacon, hash brown, and a half a tomato, just what I needed, I don't eat this everyday just at the weekend sometimes or when someone lovely will make it for me.

Ten Things I Hate.

In life you can not be happy go lucky  everyday, everyone and I mean everyone has a day where multiple things go wrong, and by the evening you just think my God anything else today.
    So I have compiled a list of  ten things that get's  on my absolute nerves I am very sure most of you have one...............

1   When you are parked in the car park and two big vans park either side of your vehicle so close  so you can't  get back into your car, Oh yes this has happened to me.

2, Other dog owners who let there dogs bark late at night and early in the morning constantly, without even trying to shut them up or take them indoors. See earlier blog post.

3  Not picking up your dog's shit. and putting it in the bin.

4 When I was younger, women who thought I was hitting on there ugly boyfriend, and pulling them away from me, and telling me to stay away from them. You must be joking.

5  Balloons at weddings why oh why would you have balloons all over your reception venue, it…

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…
