I had not realised how long it's been since I was last on here........
So much has happened in my life, but won't go into too much detail on here about the horrible things but there has been one shining light.
I'm a grandma !!!!!! I have the most beautiful amazing grandson (I have to say that it's in the job description)
The only draw back is that they live in China so I don't get to see them as often as I would like, but at least I get to see them, which is more than some can say.

Sorry for the delay but here is the next installment
The day after we went to see the orangutans we had decided to spend a day by the pool, but God had other ideas and decided to let the heavens pour the moment we had got settled on a sun lounger and all oiled up
We quickly ran under an umbrella to shelter and started talking to the other group hiding under there as well, they ...Read more
I have to do a lot of traveling in my job and have just been away for three days, In this time I have found some insights in to how driving works works.
When is a bus lane not a bus lane? When it is in London, I think I was the only car not in the bus lane while trying to find my way around London
When are you allowed to travel in the fast lane of the motorway doing only 50mph?, When you are a white van driver traveling on the M25 around London, this pil...Read more
There was one thing I forgot to mention about my trip to Jackies office, when I was coming out, the sliding electric gate was being opened for me to go out.
Just as the gate slid open there was a coach full of tourists stopped on the road outside, I'm sure as they saw the gates open they thought they would see someone famous come out.
Their cameras were clicking away 20 to the dozen as I walked out, I felt so silly, I bet they were thinking "Who the hell is that?", I...Read more
Myself and my neighbours are putting on a bonfire tonight to Celebrate bonfire night, the actual day is Monday but as that is a school night and festivities go on late we have it on the closest Saturday.
We have a huge bonfire ready in the garden to light when it gets dark, and have been out to buy fireworks.
Its traditional to have food, normally potatoes wrapped in foil and baked in the embers of the bonfire, but most people bake them in the oven these days, but I remember having them that way as a child, all burnt on the o...Read more
I travel a lot with my job and have bought a Satelite Navigation system to get me to the various places I need to go. It is wonderful and I now wonder how I managed without one,
I used to write directions on Post it notes and stick them to the dashboard, if they fell off or I was travelling in the dark I was scuppered
On wednesday this week I had to travel to a store in Charlton, on the outskirts of London. I thought that it would take me around the motorway arround London the M25 and then into London from the ...Read more
Well where do I start about my holiday to Hong Kong and Penang, the day of travelling started well, we caught the train to London and the seats we had booked were fine, we took some food and drink with us to have on this train.
prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /
We met a woman at the station who was going on holiday but realised, luckily before the train came she had forgotten her money, so her daughter had to race to the station with it before the train came.
After a good nights sleep I woke up bright and early full of anticipation, it was my Birthday and I was going to Jackie Chan’s office for a visit and I hoped he was there and I might actually finally get to see him in real life….
I went to the MTR closest to the office and took my friend to a shopping centre close by to occupy her, she is not a MA movie fan, in fact she wouldn’t know JC or JL if she fell over them, while I went in search of the lesser spotted Chan (a rare creature).
I went into the office full of anticipation...Read more
