Like I said …… !!!!!

What’s Going On?

Snow Rothwell Leeds

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!!

Wake up, wake up … we’re leaving!

Yesterday, I enjoyed a chat with a fellow Twitterer @CupecoyStMartin (the only place I want to be right now) telling me “It’s time to wake up and get on” after the beautiful festive season.  How right they were!

I was getting lazy and rooted to the spot, and just a little too comfortable in my nest. The weather is awful outside, and my mind is wandering as usual to the sunnier climbs of the Caribbean.

I always need the sun to motivate me to do anything, and I mean anything.

Wet Wet Christmas

It’s twice as hard because the sun seems to have no intention of visiting us here in London any time soon.

So here I am, doing as I’m told and putting fingers to keyboard and saying bye-bye this wonderful festive season and preparing to remove all the twinkling Christmas decorations and saying, Hi! to this fabulous New Year to come.

The Caribbean is still calling – I hear it loud and clear!

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!

It so ain’t hot in here

We are facing a foggy cold snap in London Town at the moment, and it is very difficult for me to not moan about it.

If it were possible, I would just leave the central heating on all day, snuggle under the covers and watch Saturday night TV shows.  I can feel my bones slowly creaking. Medusa, the scary snake headed character from Clash of the Titans film springs to mind.  One of the best films ever to watch as a child, the 1981 version of course, but I think I now have a sense of what her victims went through.

Images of the beaches of Anguilla couldn’t be further removed from what we are experiencing here right now.  How unfair is that?

Yes, I am still moaning!!

St Elsewhere

I’m what’s called under the weather today.  What a strange expression!  I’m feeling hot and cold at the same time, my head is thumping, my eyes are warm with vision changing from foggy to blurred at a moments notice.  I’m irritable and every voice in the house sounds ten times louder than it did yesterday.

I don’t feel under the weather, I feel I am slap bang in the middle of it.  Every miserable, wet, grey cold, damp, dark, windy not forgetting cloudy inch of it. The Caribbean couldn’t be shouting any louder if it tried today, much less calling!
