It is now Wednesday so well on our way to the weekend when I will be indoors writing catching up and trying to keep to my timetable, which isn’t easy for me.

I have spent the last few days at my daughters helping her with a poorly baby so she can get a bit more sleep. He is on antibiotics so should start improving soon, he is far too little to be poorly. His sister has taken full advantage of me being here and has had me playing shops and babies all week.

You forget how much you did when you were younger, I had 3 under 9 years old and just got on with it but now it makes me tired just watching my daughters and what they do!

The weather seems to be relentless here at the moment with strong winds and rain battering our coastline and more to come in the following days. Stay safe everyone what ever weather you are facing.


How many face creams have you got in your cupboard? I remember years ago there used to be loads in mine but now I have only one, the one I am using. This is because they are so expensive now that you can only afford one at a time. How do you decide which one to buy as they all appear to work miracles in the reviews of them, I am yet to find one that actually makes me look ten years younger with no wrinkles. Does one actually exist? I have just finished the Avon miracle worker cream so I am open to any ideas as to which to try next?

So New Year, New You. How are the resolutions going? If your like me the diet seems to be only five days a week now but at least I am still doing it. I failed to take my make up off last night so that’s another one I have failed to keep up. I have also failed to write everyday and as to being spontaneous and trying new things, I would like to find the time for that. If your looking for love then February is supposed to be the lurvvve month, it’s never worked for me but let’s keep positive. Girls, when out chat to everyone, who knows, the pharmacist serving you when buying your Ginseng maybe the love of your life.

Happy Monday xx


I am sure these two days go quicker than the five in the week!
I keep thinking about these poor people in Somerset and the floods it must be awful the fact of losing anything precious but then on top of that you have to wait till your house drys out before you can begin to repair and decorate again or even move back in. Let’s hope the insurance companies are on the ball.

20140202-114038 pm.jpg I have at last booked my tickets to see The Body Guard at the theatre up in London in April and I cannot wait, it is my favourite film of all time. I can remember when I first got the film and the CD and played them both during the songs, I guess to make it louder……not really sure why I did that lol. Must of been having my own little party.

My granddaughter told me about a new game for my iPad and how I should get it, well I wish she had never told me about it as I now want to throw the iPad. I am going to tell you what the game is and if you get more than two in your first three hours of playing……..I do not want to know! Flappy Bird.

The annual Verulam Get Writing Conference is being held at Hatfield the end of March. Verulam Writers’ Circle (VWC) is a not-for-profit organization that encourages and supports writers of all kinds, regardless of age or interest. They are very proud that 2014 is their 60th anniversary. The de Havilland Campus of the University of Hertfordshire where this is to be held is situated on St Albans Road West, Hatfield. I am going to attend this as everything about the day appears very good. I am now looking for a hotel there so if you know of one within walking distance please let me know or it will be down to Google. 😊

I hope some of you enjoyed the post I re-blogged from Pink Princess yesterday, what did you think of it?
It was written by my ten year old grandaughter, I keep asking her to give me one of her stories she has written for my blog but she is not forth coming.

Have a great week everyone xx


New to blogging, so have a read. x


There is nothing better than laughing to make you feel good and Wednesday was a feel good day. It is always nice to catch up with friends that you have known for many years, you know each other so well and with true friends you don’t have to think about conversation as it flows non stop. There are 6 of us now that meet up every month well apart from when holidays interfere, some having more than others…but I won’t go into that, I’m just jealous. Lol
Blooms restaurant in Folkestone, Kent. UK was the venue, we have been there once before so new the food and atmosphere would be good and it certainly was.
Corinne had an unexpected parcel fall in her handbag and blamed it on the large square piece of wood that her tower burger came on, but very discreetly retrieved her burger and said it was delicious. As if that wasn’t bad enough at the end of the meal she then picked out all the lettuce and tomatoes that had ended up in her bag…….dessert any one? Lol

Sheila was a first timer and was blending in so well but by the time dessert came we new she was one of us when she poured the tiny pot of dessert cream in her cup of tea! Her excuse was it looked like the milk!
Sometimes words can baffle you, some of us having more trouble than others. One of the dessert was Cherry Clafoutis, it has now been renamed to Cherry Chalfont! It was written on a chalk board, you have to wonder if her lenses were in the right way!
Three hours later and sore from laughing we said our goodbyes all looking forward to the end of February and our next lunch.
Picking a new different venue should be easy between the 6 of us………I put an add for The Oak, Charing (pub) on FaceBook as they do a Tapas lunch so thought that would be good place to go. Sharon replied “Where do we have the Tapas?”

I will leave you with that!
