Still trying to work this out! LOL!

Here I am back again, trying to work out how to do this properly! Still not decided on a theme or anything to write but just rambling on and seeing how things flow! Will need to really read through the set up hints and tips and try and add some pictures. In fact, I think I will try and add one of me and my husband on our holiday in Spain last year. Hey it worked! Now that’s simple! Will need to do some more reading and try and make this blog alot more interesting!

Think that tomorrow I will spend some time reading lots more blogs and learning more.


Still working on trying to set this up properly!

Well, I’m going to read through all the help pages and links and look at lots of other blogs and then decide what I will concentrate on blogging about.

I love the idea of blogging about my family, but I know there are some things that I wouldn’t talk about. I could blog about my love of the Costa Del Sol and the holidays I’ve had there or I could blog about my craft making – cards, and soon jewellery making. Plus I love to take photographs and I could add my photos to my blog.

Its also possible that I will blog about my weightloss journey, especially since being diagnosed diabetic back in December 2011.  Its all so much to think about and make the right decision so please dear readers, be patient with me! I will sort myself out as soon as I can.

Life is good for me at the moment, despite being retired on a very low personal pension and Government one not due till September 2013 but…. we own our home, my husband is self employed and earning a small amount of money and we have two beautiful children and 2 grandchildren and a step grandchild who make every day worth getting up for. I feel that I’m lucky and look forward to trying to get my thoughts down on my blog on a regular basis – once I decide what subject!!! LOL!

Oh and by the way, my hobby horse at the moment is GETTY IMAGES! They are trying to get over £1300 from my husband for using an image that they have in their stock photos without permission! He didn’t get it from them but has no proof of where he got it from as it was several years ago. So be warned people if you are using images on your blogs that have copyright attached to them (even if you didn’t know it had!) you may get a letter through the post from Getty Images one day demanding money, with menaces. Our MP can’t do anything about it as legall Getty are within their rights, but morally the way they are trying to get money out of people who can ill afford it is disgraceful. You can even get caught if you change the image to something that looks almost totally different – their special spybots can detect even the smallest pixel from the original!

Right off soapbox for now.

Be back on as soon as I can!



Hello world!

Well, I’ve just signed up for this and am going to think seriously about what I want to blog about! It all felt like a good idea when I signed up LOL! Now it feels very daunting, especially looking at some of the amazing blogs out there.

My idea is to just start blogging my life, but then again there are things that my family probably wouldn’t appreciate me spilling the beans on! So I think I will be putting a mixture of family, my crafting hobby, my weightloss journey and my travel experiences and whatever comes into my head!

Life is so hard for everyone now so I’m hoping I will be interesting, motivating and sometimes amusing. I will be looking at lots of blogs for inspiration (my favourite is redqueenmusings) and will try and update on a regular basis.

Feels a  bit like doing an autobiography and diary rolled into one but here goes…… off to read the do’s and don’ts!
