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 that would last around 20 minutes I will watch that I thought I can do twenty minutes,  myself and my eighteen year old niece who had come to stay decided to settle down and see what all the fuss was about. what I saw was a blindfolded  girl kiss each boy who were lined up waiting and give them scores out of ten, then the same the other way around were one blindfolded boy went along a line up of girls and kissed each one and gave them scores out of ten one girl got three out of ten, that would have given her loads of self esteem, I thought to myself what year are we living in again.  These individuals who are staying in this villa are supposed to be in their twenty's, Oh I am sorry I thought they were about 14.
        They are all carbon copies of everything that is wrong with society  today and what the hell was a doctor doing on there and as I predicted none of the girls fancied him, he was far to intelligent for them, they did not understand anything he was talking about instead they all fancied the best looking beef cake. Funny that.
      But what got me the most is they could not have put in a less diverse group of people not one ounce of fat on their  tanned toned bodies not one person with disabilities  or different body shapes. I was really bored. I related what I had seen to my friend on a later date and  she said " you're thinking far too much about it". Am I really! do I really want to watch a programme that teaches me nothing, could give people body image problems, and listen to them only going on about who they fancy when that is the only thing that should be on your young minds.  |I hope that the people who watch and enjoy the programme don't think to deeply about it and take it as entertainment and after the hour is over come back into the real world and live.

I have never seen this show....but it sounds like the bachelor or bachelorette here in the states and shows like this does nothing for me. Never liked the meaning behind them.......so for lack of better words stupid....I could not participate in such thing. As they say "to each there own." Good honest article!
Genuine thoughts...
Thanks for sharing

Completely agree. I've never seen it either but friends have. I think it just eats into people's insecurity of the way they look. I think it's very dangerous.
I never watched the show but it from what I heard is not healthy to watch.

My Summer Roller Coaster.

Hi to all my dear blog readers, sorry I have not been around for a few months, I had to take time off. I have had one of worst summers of my entire life, so as you can appreciate this post is the hardest I have ever had to write.
  In the Summer I lost my beloved Mother, she had been ill for a while but over the summer weeks she got worse and died at the end of the season, even though it was expected it was still a massive shock,  at times I cant believe it has happend and other times life is normal, and other times the sense of loss is unbearable. I lost my best friend the women who knew me  best of all didn't judge me and was the wisest person on the planet whose advice will never be forgotten and passed on, I was never going to write on the blog ever again, thinking I would have a blank head and never being able to get my  feelings out and turn them into words.  But my younger Brother said you need to go back on your blog it will do you good and distract you, you are creative …

My Obsession with Red Shoes.

I was clearing out some boxes that were secretly stashed at the bottom of my wardrobe,  actually  I forgot about them.  There were about six of them, I wondered what was in each one,  I took them out and placed them on my bed in great anticipation of what I might find, I opened the first one and there was a lovely pair of red stilettos  that were about 15 years old, and I hadn't worn in ages, the second one were some flats,  third some pumps, all the boxes contained shoes of some style that I hadn't seen for an eternity.                                         Why have I kept all theses old shoes, I thought, when I hadn't worn any of them for years, all lined up I looked at them. Yes  they are all Red,  and  that's why I couldn't bear to part with any of them.                                         I had discarded all different colours and style's  down the years,    couldn't spot any of them,  not even in a line up…

A TRUE STORY.

Last Summer 2018, the long hot Summer that we had here in the UK and all over the world, I had a blind in my Bathroom that was beautifully old and needed replacing desperately, but life gets in the way and I never kept getting around to do it, you know what I mean my lovely readers, you look at your old friend, and think yep you had it.  One day after one hot boiling day I went to close the window and my hand went right through it. and a big rip appeared,  I think the heat and time had made the blind fragile and vulnerable. It looked awful so I got a a big pair of scissors and cut across it embarrassed by the bathroom situation, lets say I can't cut very straight I scanned it from afar and thought, "No you have got to go".
    That's when I found a fantastic company that Makes made to measure blinds, they are called Make My Blinds.  They have a great and easy to navigate website, that make your blinds exactly to …

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
