Empowerment Comes In All Shapes and Forms

All the world can pass me yet when the weather is perfect ; the prefect storm of weather I call it , I yearn to be out and about . To be free as I was in those long hot summer days when life's pleasure was a copy of the Bunty and a funny foot. There's much to be had of equality and the need for this girl can ; this girl could when asked at school about presents for Christmas my answer was

" Why a 10 speed speed blue racing bike "

This drew gasps from my fellow classmates as particularly the boys as surely I should want a nice pink practical bike no doubt with sparkles. I got my 10 speed racing bike and we cycled everywhere together i was very much free when I was on my bike I was empowered : the bike was a Raleigh Wisp.

I was Bunty reader and recently I was thrilled to buy a 1980 Bunty from Kedleston Hall second hand book shop where they are selling old books to raise funds for some flooring they need to replace.

So I got a Bunty annual and I have been slipping back in time to when I used to read it , many comics were around then mainly ending in a Y .Life can be lashings of ginger bear and lemon drizzle cake , in fact I have just had some lemon drizzle cake from the staff room alas no ginger beer. The cake is back in the staff room  well healthy living  week was SO last week !

Empowerment for me at the minute is routine I would still love my bicycle with a basket , I am going to do my adult colouring , I will plan some recipes, I will order some Pimms . I will also get out and enjoy the countryside I love going different directions tonight I think I will head towards buttercup meadow.
