The What Ifs Of A Woman

The what ifs of a woman and there are many trust me some of which I can type some of those you’ll find else where but not in my blog !The what ifs of today were what if I didn’t suddenly have nose hair making a bolt for freedom making me looking some sort of dictator or Blakey off the buses .Possibly some of what I’m saying you’ll have to google and good luck on that blackhole.

What if I had graceful hands ? would my life be any better other than hand modelling and trust me that’s a thing.I’ve always thought my fingers looked like left over sausages at the butchers.But we are who we are occasionally I do go for a facial at the local beauty college and they assure me I have nice skin .

But we don’t have our personalities on a label do we now on the back of our heads like washing instructions.

What if my hair didn’t look like I had been in a boxing match with a hedgehog , well it didn’t on Monday as I had it cut and blow dried but hairdressers are wizards and witches of hair.I did say to someone that my hair wouldn’t look like this again without help.I can’t click my fingers and have a team of hair stylists come rescue me.

What if my eyebrows didn’t look like a hairy caterpillar on a rave ? I sometimes do have them done but none of this permanently surprised look like a police mugshot.

What if I didn’t look like Mystic Meg every time I took a picture of myself ?

But you can take your what ifs and leave them at the door for I will run free and have fun in life just so long as I don’t trip over my nasal hair...

Secret York You Need to Visit

When I thought about writing about secret York I thought should I really share with you after all it is secret York in fact there is so much secret York that there is really to much to put all into one blog post.I truly and deeply love York from the Vikings to of course the well renown Betty tea rooms which is a sheer and necessary indulgence.My son is up at York university studying archaeology and when say we are in a pub with him having a meal we don't look twice at the Viking sitting next to us it it par for the course in York.Now we are always up in York and we are getting to know York very very well it is a delight to just wonder round just letting your feet take your whether you may wish.

One of the hidden places that is in York will surprise you and it's not what you expect it is English Heritage and no it's not a grand house or a ruined castle or fortification.It is in fact a Nuclear bunker

and it's not what you 'd think would be a tourist attraction but it is very interesting and well worth a visit.York is such a beautiful place you will will want to come back time and time again to this stunning city and should you want to escape York for a few days then Yorkshire is a stunning place with so much to offer.The magnificent York will still be waiting for you and will welcome you back with open arms the glow and warm of the stones is breathtaking.

Even within the centre of York you can step off the beaten track and be transformed into another world one that will bewitch and beguile you.I am talking about the Treasurers House in York that is practically next to the monumental York Minster and it’s a National Trust property.And the Treasurers House holds a secret within a secret which is that of the CafĂ©.

And even Bettys of York yes that must famous tea room in the world has its secret side from shop where you can step back and seems like your in some sort of Harry Potter cake shop to the Tea rooms both the one where anyone can go to ( and more than likely queue ) to the upstairs tea room where you must defiantly have to book.And the upstairs tea room is a whole new world of pure luxury and tea and cake decadence.

Collete Burgess who grew up in York and blogs at We’re going on an adventure at has some ideas for what to do in York 

“Growing up in York means that I often take the city for granted. I used to walk past the Minster every day and barely notice it.  Now that I've moved away I'm regularly struck by the beauty of this city and can totally see why it attracts so many visitors (even if they did used to drive me mad taking photos in the middle of the street and getting in my way when I was trying to go about my business!) 

There's literally so much to do in York - from climbing the city walls (this is really lovely walk and doesn't cost anything though isn't very pushchair friendly) to taking a horse and cart ride around the city centre (something I wanted to do my whole life and finally managed the week after Dave & I got married!)  

If the weather is nice you can't beat hiring a Little Red Boat and taking a ride down the River Ouse (you can go on bigger boats but it's not as much fun as driving the boat yourself!)  And, don't forget to try out a Ghost Walk (this is better done in the Autumn when the evenings are drawing in - it's not really as spooky when it's broad daylight!)  You'll laugh, jump and learn all sorts of random stuff about the history of York and its inhabitants!"

Karen from Minitravellers has some suggestions for 48 hours in York as does Leyla from Motherhood diaries as about how to spend 48 hours in York

Celebrate Trees Don’t Destroy Trees

Earlier it was just me the crows and the crickets as I  waltzed back from speech therapy.I spied the prettiest willow herb putting on the best fashion show I’ve ever seen.I forgot to salute a magpie so now I’m sorry the world is going to end.

And trees they’re wonderful aren’t they all majestic what their size but we mustn’t disrespect them and hurt them.

We don’t deserve trees if this is what mindless folk are going to do to them.Trees are the heroes/heroines we need and should be celebrated.

I love trees they’re the best and I wouldn’t ever want a world without trees.

Blogging From The Heart

I’m not a big blogger, I’m not a big influencer , I’m not a Nano influencer , I’m not a micro blogger.

I’m not instagram ready so free from the pressures of perfection yet I’m perfect in each and every way.

Blog to inspire and influence yourself and others from the heart.

But blog as you want to but I’ll tell you from experience it isn’t worth the headache from the pressure of trying to keep up and I blog as I wish and want to, very rarely there’s a sponsored post.Sometimes there’s a review post but 99 % of the time it’s little old me and my many many thoughts that pop into my head.There are cats in here , tea countryside and goodness knows what if it isn’t for you I’m not offended they’ll be something that is for you. 

This me this is what I like, I like observing and soaking in life’s moments like letting the sunshine dance upon my closed eyelids , thinking about which word I like for the day.I dislike giving opinions as I do find it quite hard to get my opinion across and I get all flustered but eventually I get there.Writing makes stuff easier you can say as little or as much as you like and it’s the bees knees and it’s magical.

I’m ready I’m here let’s do life.

I do have difficulties but hey ho I’m so very kind and I’ll do my very best for people .

Life is like a window you’ve got to look beyond what you initially see.

Charity Shops They Are Worth A Look

I’m always in charity shops either dropping off or buying various items , I certainly have a knack in finding the diamond in the rough.You would honestly be amazed at what I’ve found in charity shops from collectible china to Lacoste shoes.

Those there are my four pound Lacoste shoes not worn or maybe worn once  and taken off maybe as they squeak.But charity shops break joy heartfelt joy and I’m not just talking about the fact that I found Lacoste shoes that were only four pounds.

There was a elderly gentleman there with his daughter in the neighbouring cafe along with his little pet dog.And the daughter came into the charity shop to see if they had any blankets for sale.They didn’t have any for sale but they did have a dressing gown for sale which she could use as a blanket. It was one of two dressing gowns I’d previously donated.This made me very happy indeed as he could enjoy his cake and cup of tea in comfort.
