Happy New Year Everyone :)


I would just like to take a moment to say "Happy New Year" and I wish good health and happiness to you all. Xx

I sincerely hope 2017 is kind to everyone. I have personally experienced some happy and sad events during 2016. I have shed a few tears this past year for friends and relatives I have lost along the way. They will remain forever in my heart. Miss you. X

Whatever you are all doing this evening, take a moment to remember your pets. Please bring them indoors, as it may be a little scary for them, once the fireworks get started.

Most of all, I wish you all a fabulous start to the new year. I am hoping for a good new year too, especially with all of my loved ones.

I love you all. Have a very good evening and as I raise my glass at midnight, I'll be thinking of some of you.

Take care, stay safe.

Love SmileyRoseFrances xxx

A Historical Day For Great Britain

Re the recent referendum at the end of June 2016, the British people all went out in their droves in order to vote to either remain or to exit the European Union. The majority of the British public voted for Brexit. Tthey voted to exit the European Union.

One wonders, had the British public voted the other way, would there have been all of the fuss and uproar there is now!

There is no use crying over spilled milk. The British people now need to join together and to move forward with that decision. The referendum took place in order to allow the British people to make a desision about the future of their country. The votes should decide our future. End of story!

I Am An Independant Woman!

Someone was wondering, so this is just for the record! 😊

I am an independent woman. I am actually divorced and I have been divorced for 10 years now. I am NOT subsidized by anyone else, not even an ex husband. I do not have young children living at home/with me. My family are all adults. ☺

I moved out of my family home, after my divorce and I began afresh. My current home is indeed my own. I pay for all of my own bills. I have NOT remarried therefore all of my bills are not shared, unlike some of my married/seperated friends/or friends living with their partners.

I do not have any immediate plans to walk down the aisle with anyone again, not in the near future. I enjoy male companionship, therefore of course I like to date guys. Until such a time when my circumstances change, I am indeed very happy to remain single. I will endeavour to let you all know if anything changes.

I am NOT envious of any of my friends, why should I be. Our circumstances are different. Many of my friends have two wages going into their family home. I live a single lifestyle....and I am happy. 😁

The reason why I had to say something is because someone assumed that I still lived in the family home I once shared with my ex husband and that he still subsidized me. They assumed that we were only seperated!!!!

I am an independant woman....therefore stop jumping to conclusions. I can date and sleep with anyone I choose...because I am free to do so, without me feeling like i am cheating on anyone!

I am not desperate!!! I do not have any baggage!!!!

Coldplay At Wembley

I was fortunate enough to go and see the band Coldplay perform live at the Wembley Stadium, London. They were absolutely brilliant! They were probably the best band I have seen perform live so far.

More to follow

Arrival - Abba Songs :)

I had the most amazing time last night. I went to see Arrival, an Abba tribute band with a friend at The Cresset, Bretton, Peterborough. The band were were very good. We sang along to most of the songs and we danced in the aisles. We were very lucky to have front row seats too. 😀

I loved dancing along to "Dancing Queen"... Of course I am old enough to remember Abba when they first released all of those songs ☺

A New Year Moan!


Here's a little moan! I remember years ago, my grandmother being quite frail and she always had a number of tablets to take. I remember her joking with me, telling me that if I shook her around, she'd make a good rattle! Anyway, her tablets used always come in little plastic bottles/containers. A good idea however the lids were not always easy to remove.

These days, the tablets come in packets which require an elderly person, who might be suffering from arthritis or a similar debilitating disease, to struggle pushing them out of a packet. It is not always very easy for them. What may seem easy for us to do right now, it can be a struggle for others, particularly for the elderly. I do wish someone would invent an easy method to abstract pills, just to make their lives easier.

I remember the days when petrol stations had petrol pump attendants. Wouldn't it be nice to at least have one person on hand at a petrol station to assist with the little jobs that some folk may have difficulties with, such as checking tyre pressures etc. I am sure there would be fewer accidents on the roads if there were people who helped in such matters, especially helping the elderly folk. Some of the little tasks might seem silly to some of you right now, but not so silly to our ageing citizens.

Then there are the detergent bottles! How do they expect the elderly folk to get into some of those! Even I had difficulties getting Into one for my mum the other day, I had to use my teeth to help me open it!

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016 - New Year's Eve

Well as the old year very quickly draws to an end and a new one begins, I would just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year. :)

I know some of you haven't had a particularly good year, this year (((((Hugs to you all)))))). Sadly, life does come with it's ups and it's downs sometimes, therefore i know some of you will perhaps be happy to spend the celebrations quitely and peacefully this evening. Whatever it is you are all doing, I just wanted to say that I am thinking about you and that I wish you all love and happiness whilst we bring in the New Year later on. :)

I shall be raising my glass this evening, feeling thankful. I will be thinking about the future, hoping life has some more good times planned for me. I shall also be reflecting upon the past events of the year. I will be thinking about all of those people who are no longer with us anymore, but who have brought such joy to my life throughout the years. Long may they all be remembered. Most of all, I shall be thankful for my family members. Wishing each and everyone of them a very prosperous New Year. I love you. :) xxx

From The Three Of Us x

A Happy New Year from the three of us......and Bradley Bunny too. ;)

Best wishes
