EU Referendum - NW's non political POV

Thursday, 30 June 2016

  • Hello GREAT BRITAIN, THE WORLD & more poignantly, lovely EUROPE,

    Clare and I want to have a chin wag with last weeks topsy turvy turn of events… oops.

    We are PROUD to be British with our mixed up heritage derived from lands across Europe - a little variety makes a great partnership! Keeps it fresh to have difference backgrounds. We are European by default, all of us in Europe have our quirky ways - that's far more interesting than being homogenous. 

    G.B is a nation that celebrates all people and all cultures across the Globe. No doubt if the Aliens came and landed in England they'd know more about obsessional tea brewing than our policy making by the time they scooted back into hyperspace. They'd show us a worm hole and in turn we'd ask about the weather and if tea was an intergalactic beverage; then stuff our pockets with teabags for the journey with a hip flask hidden from sight! 

    We are a nation of immigrants, eccentrics and most importantly, diversity - and the better for it. There is no room for those televised bigots they cherry pick for sensualist news headlines. They do not represent us in Europe or the world. We love you all.  We are terrible at languages but all for your entertainment; those accents cause great screen play to be written - Mr Peter Sellers... the pickings are self explanotory to citizens of the world.

    We are the TEA-DRINKERS, warm beer swillers, WINE drinkers, the queuers, the weather watchers and the Sunday Roast Makers. The curry nights and the benders, the PIMMS in the rain and the G&T's, the pomp and peculiar. 

    What would we do without the French - c'est chic. Champagne, Hermes, Chanel, the list is endless. The whole area of Bordeaux in particular;) You're incredibly talented Chefs who live in GB... nom nom - merci beaucoup.

    ITALIAN EVERYTHING. J'adore Italy. Just want to make that clear.

    Germany - some of the best times of our lives happened in Germany. Love it all. Berlin too cool for words. Not enough time in the blog.

    Chin up. Grab a tipple and lets look to the future however it unfolds.  Lets muddle through as ever.

    Generally we love the world and all who sail round her, but especially Canada at the moment. (book bias!)

    Saturday 30th April 2016 I was lying in bed with my husband and children when I suddenly announced that I was going to enter the London Marathon. Baring in mind I haven't been for a run in over seven years this came as a bit of a surprise to me. 

    The truth is I've been feeling restless for a while and I needed something to push me out of the house. I wanted to feel strong again not just physically but mentally too. I haven't exercised properly in years and I wanted to change that. So in my old trainers and sportswear I stepped out of the house and began to run. I managed just ten minutes before I had to stop and catch my breath but it felt good. I thought it was going to be hideous but it really was quite the opposite.

    I've now been running for seven weeks and it's amazing how far I've come. I run two to three times a week and I run approximately 4 miles each time and it feels great. I can't stress enough how much happier I am (this must be the endorphins everyone tells you about). I presume this is the honeymoon period and as a friend kindly pointed out it won't be as much fun running in the cold and rain. Spoil-sport. But I already know that running is having a positive impact on my life and I feel fitter and happier for it. I'm under no illusion that training for the marathon is going to be hard work. But for now it is simply about me getting out in the fresh air and putting one foot in front of the other.

    As the weeks and months go by I will let you know how it's going and I will also talk more about the charity I'm running for - Get Kids Going!

    NEW TOP GEAR- BUGATTI or bugging you Monkeying around?

    Monday, 6 June 2016

    Now we all know both of us are not exactly petrol heads, although neither of us would say no to a Bugatti! But we do like a bit of speed (especially when the winds behind our sails!   Yes, i.e. book sales). But us, plus the wayward hair, and Le Blanc (The Scooby snack of sitcom), with the new edition to the NW family "Noddy" a random man with monkey socks, tractors, etc we could soar higher than the clouds themselves...  Beeb look no further... We here, not knowingly promoting anything!
