I was astounded to see this weekend whilst out shopping, cards, heart shaped balloons and all kinds of parapheranalia associated with Valentines Day. This made me realise we are only one month away from supposedly the most romantic day of the year. But, why just stop at this one day?
Who doesn’t think of shifting those excess pounds in January, after all the excess of Christmas?? Now I am sure that for a lot of us when we take a cruise holiday we start the holiday in our skimpiest outfits and finish the holiday with elasticated waists!!!! However, some friends of mine who have just returned from 2 weeks on Oasis Of the Seas actually ended up lighter than when they embarked. How did they manage it I hear you ask?
How fantastic are these cakes? They were made by my Daughter, Kimberley, dont they look good? We are off to deliver them to friends and family soon. Well that time of year has finally arrived again, I want to wish everyone a Happy Christmas, and lets look forward to a Happy New Year.
Social Media – Will it be the death of some people?
I have just come across a story from Australia, where a young woman was so engrossed in Facebook, she was not paying attention to where she was and walked off the end of a pier in St Kildas near Melbourne. Thankfully, she was rescued and is okay. The Police said when they got to her she still had her mobile phone in her hand!!!!
My Family and I have just been talking about our plans for this weekend. Christmas shopping has featured high on my ” to do ” list.
As you know I live in Manchester and the Christmas Markets get bigger and more popular every year. The food stalls always offer fantastic ranges of European cuisine, Bratwurst, cheeses, creperies, Spanish Tapas and of course mulled wines and hot chocolates.
This year I celebrated my Big 50. I have always wanted to travel down the Pacific Highway in an open top sports car – picture it – red Corvette, wind blowing through my hair – very Thelma and Louise!!!!! So in June this year my Husband and I boarded a flight to San Fransisco ( not sure he liked being called Louise!!! ) From the moment we arrived we felt so relaxed and at ease. It has to be one of the friendliest cities I have visited.
