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

Our Room With A View.

       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 so nice my partner doesn't speak Italian only a few words and dirty sayings, naughty boy   so he left me to do the talking. 
   I always feel at home when I am in Italy, I think I have mentioned before my parents are from Italy but I was born in the UK and I have been coming here since I was a child.  My family are from all over Italy but my Grandfather was born 20 minutes outside of Florence. But as my partner put it this trip was so see Florence not family.  I will be back to see them.  
    I don't want this post to be travel post really as I am not very good at that kind of thing, much  more of me telling my friends if you know what I mean,  I have to be a bit careful about details as I promised I wouldn't say to much but I wanted to tell you all were I had been the last few days,  because it was so lovely and I had as great time.

Far to much pizza.

    We did stuff our face's we went to a fantastic pizzeria, I am not that great with toppings, so I was a bit boring,  why does pizza always taste better in Italy.  We did a lot of walking, We wanted to see as much as we could as I haven't been into Florence itself for years, we were  tourists this time so we were going  to do touristy things yay.    I have eaten a lot seen a lot walked a lot and laughed a lot, and I will be going back a lot, if we can.  I have shared some photo's don't worry it's only a few, I don't want to bore you with holiday snaps. Other people's holiday snaps eww.  So till the next time Arrivederci  Firenze.

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.

What the hell is happening with Amazon they have gone awful I ordered something a week ago got a message saying it's dispatched and then another one saying the driver has lost it. I will have to find out now what has happened to it, Ridiculous. love  Mimi 💋

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. 💋 

Bath  I used Sanctuary Spa Body Wash, it was so relaxing and the smell of sandalwood and jasmine was lovely, and the essential oils made my skin so soft. Here is the link Sanctuary spa.

Bed  I bought this bedding from Dunelm last weekend I couldn't wait to use it I think it's so pretty I love the subtle colours  you can find it here Dunelm bedding.

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…
