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.

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…

                        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…
