Beautiful weather 

The weather in the UK is perfect, high temperatures, blue sky, not a cloud to be seen.  

There is something extra special when we have good weather, because it’s rare compared to our European cousin’s and what feels like the rest of the world .  When the sky is blue , people smile, take to the parks, out comes the bbq, ice cream and shorts. 

We are a country rationed  of pure blue sky and high temperatures and easily become akin to a kind of 
lizard mentality when, on rare occasion the sum does appear. .., right , off to bask  at the sun before it goes….

Reviews. ..

I was at the cinema yesterday with my son,  oh what to watch?  

The first available movie time wise amd doable because of commitments was the new diary of a whimpy kid.  I knew it had been badly slated my reviewers, so with extreme apprehension we bought tickets 

The reviewers were wrong, it was very funny and incredibly enjoyable, admittedly it was one of my favourite genres of movies. ..Road trips 

Note to self for future. ..reviewers it’s only one persons opinion 

A mindful moment in summer 

It’s summer and one of the hats I wear is a mindfulness teacher, so this is a mindful
 moment in my life right now. 

I am currently in trittiford park with Buddha my dog.  I can feel a mild  (not warm) breeze passing through my hair and touching my skin and the sun on my face. I can smell musky grass behind me and a slightly sweet and familiar smell of the leaves of trees close by.  I can hear, many birds tweeting, duck, geese, people talking in the distance and cars on the roads  near by. What can I see,  well that’s a long,  long list so a photo will give you a taste 

Wow, such Talent 

Well, it was my spoken word and music event at the quirky little bohemian cafe in Balsall Heath last night and it was a night bursting with talent. 

It’s not just spoken word and music  (maybe I should rename it) there are comedians , a magician and often more. 

I remember way back when variety programmes began to receive high ratings , programmes like, “The good old days.” Yes, I am that old!  We still love variety acts today, I believe ,”Britain’s got talent” is still on . 

What lots of people may not know is there are many venues in Birmingham where talent is overflowing, last night was just one of them
