Yesterday was HOT!

Yesterday was HOT!

Yesterday (09.04.17) was so hot, I had to rub sun lotion on Max! At this time of year, he was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. I couldn’t believe it!

And then I saw this…

Did this guy not feel the heat? I mean, he even had his hood on!

One another note, I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.

Easy Fundraising, UK

Hello folks!

I predominately shop online, so I find this site very useful for raising funds for charity – without paying more than I would have done, with what I was going to purchase anyway. In fact, free donations are collected for your chosen charity! I have chosen Celia Hammond Animal Trust (UK Animal Rescue Charity), but you are not limited to animal charities.

It doesn’t cost you a penny extra. When you shop the easyfundraising way with one of our 3,113 shops and sites they give us a commission for your purchase. We turn that into a donation and give it to your good cause. Easy!

Not sure if there is a scheme like this anywhere else in the world, but it’s worth you having a look.

Maybe it’s Because I’m a Londoner…

20150924_153254_resized_1

I recently purchased these keepsake boxes, purely for their look. As a Londoner, I love anything to do with the beautiful city I was fortunate to be born in. I am also extremely proud to be British (despite a number of things going on which I really am not happy about), and love the Union Jack.

I remember singing this song in school:

‘Maybe It’s Because I’m A Londoner’

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town

“When I’m away from London, I can’t help thinking of some of my favorite places. Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, and late at night, the fog that settles softly over London Bridge.”

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town
That I love London town
That I love the London town

No matter where I am in the world, I will always be a Londoner. I will always be British. ❤

Armistice Day And Veterans Day

I must say, I am very proud to be a part of two of the greatest countries, and do count myself lucky.

I’m not going to use this post to point out a particular individual who doesn’t deserve the title “Veteran” nor go into detail about it, as this is not what this post is about.

Instead, I am going to praise all the Service Men, Women and Animals – in particular those who gave the ultimate sacrifice – their lives, so we have the (somewhat) Freedom we are so fortunate to have.

I have read up on war stories. I have listened to a great deal also.

Some of these Men and Women, in particular Men, have seen things that we as civilians, have never seen, nor could we ever imagine what they have had to live with for many, many years.

Some of these Men were executed by their own for cowardice, rather than be treated for what is now known as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

To both British and American soldiers, past and present ~ Thank you so much for your service. ❤

Lest We Forget

Amen.

Lest We ForgetHave we forgotten their ultimate  sacrifice?Of these men and women who died in their  millions?Brave and true, without question,proud to be British,  not ashamed to be Christian.So many years have past,it  seems our memory doesn’t last.

Forgetting these courageous people to our  shame.

Why can’t we remember their names?

How short is our  memory?

That we have forgotten them already.

Died in their  millions fighting for our freedom,

believing in our free democratic  ideology.

What does it take to wake up this country,

to  rise once again from its complacency?

How much more do we take, before we  decide to fight,

for our beliefs, our traditions and our  liberty?

My Absence Explained

10462822_10152511170986291_5693564525570290026_n

I decided to take time out this week, because I wanted to follow my son’s pattern/schedule. So, I have been napping and sleeping when he does. This way, I can be awake and ready to go when he is. Although I’m still not eating much, if anything at all, I have been drinking plenty of water. The permanent headache is not as intense as it used to be – for now.

With that being said, I am feeling a bit better. A little less… tired. I could feel, with all the stress over the past couple of weeks or so, my PTSD really kicking in. I had to slow things down a lot.

I miss my family and friends.

I miss London, UK.

If there were more to do where I am, it would be easier. I’m a city gal. Always have been. Always will be.

Besides, Max my little American born boy misses British food. As do I. 🙂
