What’s Going On?

My London Town

This time last year I was enjoying the sun in the beautiful lush green parks of London, playing with the kids and strolling hand in hand with my husband.

Need I say more!!

Christmas shop hopping till you drop!!

I went Christmas shopping at the Westfield Shopping Centre for the very first time with my 10 year old Little Princess today, and what an experience!

Designer, exclusive and popular stores galore.  Christmas lights, decked halls and Christmas crooning all around. Champagne flutes, chocolate covered pretzels and gleaming crispy creams of my dreams. I was in my element.

I have never seen so many shops all under one roof.  It was amazing, and I’m glad to say, I’ve still got it.  My Little princess ran out of steam a long time before me.  I could have shopped, hopped and scoffed the whole day.  Those young ones, just aren’t made of the same stuff are they?

Peanuts Yawn

I think an early night is on the cards for the Little Princess tonight.  Don’t you?

Christmas is in full swing

The time has finally arrived.  I will be rummaging through, under and in boxes, trunks and chests.  Boxes in lofts, trunks in cupboards and chests in garages. Throughout the whole process I will be in fine mood!

Do you want to know WHY?

Because it’s Christmas of course!

decorating the tree

I shall be dressing my adorable Christmas tree and decorating my little abode with as many decorations as possible with my family.  Nat King Cole will be crooning, Bing will be whistling and Frank will be smouldering the air waves all day and night.

Amidst it all, fruity mince pies and rich double cream will continue to flow, seeing as I have been eating them for the last two weeks anyway. Christmas has finally arrived.

Christmas in Anguilla?…If only

I am wondering what would it be like to have a family Christmas in the Caribbean sunshine.  This is something I have never experienced.

I adore Christmas in England, and liken it to what Christmas would be like in the United States of America, our nearest comparison.  Every Christmas I have only ever experienced what has always and only been freezing cold.  Sometimes with lovely thick snow on the ground, but freezing cold.  Other times dull, miserable and wet outside, and as usual freezing cold, but I have never minded as I just adore the Christmas festive season.

I’ve also experienced Christmas in Cyprus on a few occasions, though many people are not aware it is very cold in Cyprus during the winter season.  This experience made me realise how much I appreciate the invention of central heating.

I would now love to experience a new kind of family Christmas.  A Christmas in Anguilla with the sun on my back and the sand between my toes.  I would probably still lay on the festive spread and traditions, plus the snow effect decorations, it just wouldn’t be right, would it?.  I would probably also light the flame effect fire for good measure, but an Anguillan Christmas would be a real treat, my Christmas treat, and why not!!

Anguilla…my work in progress

I must stop this day dreaming and concentrate!

I just keep dreaming of what it would be like to live on the beautiful island of Anguilla.

This place looks amazing, a Caribbean paradise on earth.

I use this method of day dreaming as an inspiration and motivation for my business to get me there one day, but sometimes it just takes over and work doesn’t get done. Instead, I just plough through the internet browsing amazing images of this beautiful island and its beautiful people.

Well, with pen in hand now,  I better get on with my business plan work, or maybe, surf just a little more.  I did say I needed the motivation!
