Banned from Facebook AGAIN!!!



 Yet again I find myself on a facebook ban, only this time for 3 days for posting a link to a group,  It is a very small group with just over 100 members,  I only posted the link in this one group so I know it was someone on the group who reported me,  I may have a warped sense of humour but some people really need to put their big girl knickers on and learn to scroll past. 

Last night 
I was sitting at our bug club meeting, the speech was excellent and we were just waiting for the raffle when I thought I would pop on FB for a min,  I logged in on my phone and got this message pop up.  this is a new message for me as usually it just says something along the lines of a picture you posted has been removed and you are now blocked blah blah blah, it doesn’t usually say you have been directly reported. and this is how I know it wasn’t FB auto-bot that picked up the link, now my main complaint, while it may have been a bit nasty, ie some guys wife went nuts and cut off his manhood because he had been cheating on her,  he was admitted to hospital and she went into the hospital and cut it off again and threw it out of the window, now the pictures were pixilated.  I posted a comment something like boy was she pissed off,  this was two days ago 

You have been directly reported to facebook for posting a picture that contains nudity, the picture has been removed and you are now blocked from posting. This temporary block will last for 3 days, and you won’t be able to post on Facebook until it’s finished. Please bear in mind that people who repeatedly post things that aren’t allowed on Facebook may have their accounts permanently disabled.

Anyway, I go to the support box and find this, so decided to appeal it.  still waiting on it although I won’t hold out much luck, the worst thing about being banned on facebook is it’s like walking around a sweet shop with no money and everyone else is getting free samples and you’re not.  You can read posts if you are admin on a group you can still approve messages and add members and delete posts but you can’t like or comment or post pictures at all.
oh well looks like I will just have to sit it out.  one day down, two more to go
I will just have to try and be good as once you have been banned they watch your account I am sure of it.  I know others who have had the same thing happen,  first you get the warning that a picture has been removed.. naughty naughty don’t post things like that again,
the second time, you get a slap on the wrist and a 24 hr ban, The third time it’s a 7 day ban and after that you can either get a 30 day ban or even have your account closed.
All because someone gets offended, and can’t scroll on by 


The Morning after the day before, Westminster, we will stand up for London.


Yesterday was a horrific act of terror, yes they are saying that the person who did it was a Muslim extreme terrorist. but that doesn’t mean all Muslim’s are terrorists.  I am saddened and ashamed about some of the things I have seen and read this morning, the hatred for Muslims from some of the British people, some people I consider my friends on facebook especially, I have done several posts today. and no doubt I will probably be removed from their friends list by some.  but I find it hard to keep my gob shut. 

My posts

I am sick to death of all the posts I see bashing Muslims, the people who did this and all the other attacks in places are terrorist extremists.

The next post I have made is this one because there are people commenting with nothing but pure hatred and ignorance because this woman is wearing a headscarf.  

For all those sharing this picture, bottom left and ranting about Muslims
That to me looks like a woman who has seen that the person is being helped knows she can’t do anything but is also worried for her own safety. She will know what is going on in people’s minds that some people will judge her on sight and fear that if she offers help she could be attacked herself just for her religion. She could be on the phone trying to get help or contact her family to let them know she is ok.
There appears to be a white man also walking by just behind the lady in the headscarf,(top left) and yet funnily enough. I haven’t seen any comments about him. Oh no, the people who are insinuating this lady doesn’t care and to ‘deport her’ only see what they want.
It’s a poisonous picture. She looks upset, probably terrified of everything going on around her, seen things no one should see, but there are already so many people around the injured people what more would she do? At least she’s not taking a selfie like the other couple in the other picture.
Wonder why the top picture that was also was taken, yesterday isn’t being shared oh I know because he isn’t wearing a headscarf


I have never been racist, homophobic or Sectarianism if that is the right word for Religious discrimination treating a person or group differently because of what they believe in. and it really sickens me to see people assuming that because these terrorists are Muslims that all Muslims are terrorist. 

I saw this post on facebook and I couldn’t have put it any better myself 


A day London won’t forget. Terrorist attack on Westminster.

The news today is terrible,  so hard to describe how I am feeling, This is a bridge I have walked myself loads of times,  It’s only a few years ago I was there with the boys,  this could have happened anytime, my heart is breaking for all the families involved, at the moment we don’t know the final toll, but they are saying 4 or 5 dead and over 40 injured. all I can do is copy all the news items,. no doubt as we learn more, things will change 

A policeman was stabbed inside the perimeter of Britain’s parliament building on Wednesday, an assailant was shot outside and several people lay bleeding on a nearby bridge, Reuters witnesses and officials said.

Reuters reporters inside the building heard loud bangs and shortly afterwards a Reuters photographer said he saw at least a dozen people injured on Westminster Bridge, next to parliament.

His photographs showed people lying on the ground, some of them bleeding heavily and one apparently under a bus. The number of casualties was unclear.

“Officers – including firearms officers – remain on the scene and we are treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise,” London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

The House of Commons, which was in session at the time, was immediately suspended and lawmakers were asked to stay inside.

Prime Minister Theresa May was safe after the incident, a spokesman for her office said. He declined to say where May was when the attack took place.

The leader of the House, David Lidington, said in the chamber that an assailant who stabbed a policeman had been shot by police.

An ambulance helicopter landed on Parliament Square, just outside the building.

The BBC said police believed there was a suspect vehicle outside parliament but police did not immediately confirm that report.

Amid confusing scenes, it appeared the incident may have unfolded in several locations, including on the busy Westminster bridge where tourists take pictures of Big Ben and other attractions.

Reuters reporters inside parliament said a large number of armed police, some carrying shields, were pouring into the building.

U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House he had been briefed on events in London but gave no details.

The incident took place on the first anniversary of attacks on Brussels in Belgium.

Britain is on its second-highest alert level of “severe” meaning an attack by militants is considered highly likely.

In May 2013, two British Islamists stabbed to death soldier Lee Rigby on a street in south-east London.

In July 2005, four British Islamists killed 52 commuters and themselves in suicide bombings on the British capital’s transport system in what was London’s worst peacetime attack.

This is a developing story.


An assailant stabbed a policeman and was shot by police just outside Britain’s parliament building in London on Wednesday in what police described as a “terrorist incident”.

Amid confusing scenes, it appeared the incident may have unfolded in several locations, including on the nearby Westminster bridge where eyewitnesses said a car had crashed into pedestrians.

Two people died in the incident, according to Sky News, but the total number of casualties was unclear.

“Officers – including firearms officers – remain on the scene and we are treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise,” London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

The incident took place on the first anniversary of attacks by Islamist militants that killed 32 people in Brussels.

Reuters reporters inside the parliament building heard loud bangs and shortly afterwards saw two people lying on the ground in a courtyard just outside, within the perimeter of the parliamentary estate.

A Reuters photographer said he saw at least a dozen people injured on Westminster Bridge, next to parliament.

His photographs showed people lying on the ground, some of them bleeding heavily and one apparently under a bus.

“I just saw a car go out of control, and just go into pedestrians on the bridge,” a woman who gave her name as Bernadette told Sky News. She was on a tour bus on the bridge at the time.

“As we were going across the bridge, we saw people lying on the floor, they were obviously injured. I saw about 10 people maybe. And then the emergency services started to arrive. Everyone was just running everywhere.”


Some people suffered catastrophic injuries in the incident, British news agency the Press Association reported, citing a doctor at St Thomas’s Hospital which is located directly across the River Thames from parliament.

Officials said an assailant had stabbed a policeman and then been shot.

Witness reports suggested the assailant and the stabbed policeman were the people seen lying on the ground just outside the parliamentary building by Reuters reporters.

The House of Commons, which was in session at the time, was immediately suspended and lawmakers were asked to stay inside.

Prime Minister Theresa May was safe after the incident, a spokesman for her office said. He declined to say where May was when the attack took place.

Journalist Quentin Letts of the Daily Mail newspaper told LBC radio that he had witnessed the stabbing of the policeman and the shooting of the assailant from his office in the parliament building.

“He (the assailant) ran in through the open gates … He set about one of the policemen with what looked like a stick,” Letts said.

“The policeman fell over on the ground and it was quite horrible to watch and then having done that, he disengaged and ran towards the House of Commons entrance used by MPs (members of parliament) and got about 20 yards or so when two plain-clothed guys with guns shot him.”

Reuters reporters inside parliament saw a large number of armed police, some carrying shields, pouring into the building.

U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House he had been briefed on events in London but gave no details.

In Edinburgh, the Scottish parliament suspended a planned debate and vote on independence as news of events in London came in.

Britain is on its second-highest alert level of “severe” meaning an attack by militants is considered highly likely.

In May 2013, two British Islamists stabbed to death soldier Lee Rigby on a street in south-east London.

In July 2005, four British Islamists killed 52 commuters and themselves in suicide bombings on the British capital’s transport system in what was London’s worst peacetime attack.

A policeman has been stabbed and his apparent attacker shot by officers in a major security incident at the Houses of Parliament.

Around three shots rang out outside the Palace of Westminster after a man ran through the gates into the front yard of the parliamentary compound apparently waving a knife.

Two people were seen being treated on the ground in New Palace Yard amid shouts and screams.

An air ambulance landed in Parliament Square and a regular ambulance came in through the front gates as medics rushed to help the injured people.

Armed police cleared the area around the incident and Parliament Square was closed to traffic.

Scotland Yard said the attack in Westminster was being treated ‘as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise’.

Parliament has been suspended and a Downing Street spokesman has confirmed that Prime Minister Theresa May is safe following the incident.

She was reportedly bundled off by heavily-armed police officers.

Up to one dozen people were also injured after a car mowed down people on Westminster Bridge.

One woman has died and a number of others have been hurt – including some with ‘catastrophic’ injuries – a junior doctor at St Thomas’ Hospital has said.

Eyewitness Rick Longley said he saw a man stab a policeman. Fighting back tears he said: ‘We were just walking up to the station and there was a loud bang and a guy, someone, crashed a car and took some pedestrians out.

‘They were just laying there and then the whole crowd just surged around the corner by the gates just opposite Big Ben.

‘A guy came past my right shoulder with a big knife and just started plunging it into the policeman.

‘I have never seen anything like that. I just can’t believe what I just saw.’

Police extended the cordon back up Broad Sanctuary beyond Westminster Abbey to the junction with Victoria Street.

Four police vans arrived at the scene at 3.40pm, as the air ambulance took off.



The police officer killed in a terror attack at Westminster has been named by the Met Police as PC Keith Palmer.

The 48-year-old husband and father was among five people who died, including the attacker, near the Houses of Parliament.

The attacker, whose identity police believe they know, stabbed the unarmed officer before being shot dead.

Forty other people were injured after a car struck pedestrians on nearby Westminster Bridge before it crashed.

Acting Deputy Commissioner and head of counter-terrorism at the Metropolitan Police, Mark Rowley, said they were working on the assumption the attacker was “inspired by international terrorism”.

PC Palmer was a member of the Met’s parliamentary and diplomatic protection command and had 15 years service.

Mr Rowley paid tribute to PC Palmer, saying: “He was someone who left for work today expecting to return home at the end of his shift – and he had every right to expect that would happen.”

He said specially-trained family liaison officers were supporting the families of the three members of the public who lost their lives.

‘Sick and depraved’

Three police officers were among those injured, two of whom were in a serious condition, he added.

Speaking in Downing Street after chairing a meeting of the government’s Cobra emergencies committee, Prime Minister Theresa May said it was a “sick and depraved” attack on the heart of the capital and attempts to defeat UK values were “doomed to failure”.

Mrs May paid tribute to the “exceptional men and women” of the police force who responded to the attack, saying: “We will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart.”

The prime minister added: “The location of this attack was no accident. The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city where people of all nationalities, religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech.”

Earlier, Mr Rowley said a major investigation was under way into the “marauding terrorist attack”.

He said emergency services were called at 14.40 GMT after the car was driven over Westminster Bridge, hitting and injuring a number of members of the public and the three police officers, who were on their way back from a commendation ceremony.

After the car crashed into the railings of the Houses of Parliament, a man armed with a knife “continued the attack” and tried to enter the building.

Media captionTheresa May: “We will never give in to terror”

Eyewitnesses said police fired three or four gunshots as the knifeman lunged towards a second officer. Parliament went into lockdown.

Foreign Office minister Tobias Ellwood – a former Army officer whose brother died in the Bali terrorist bombing in 2002 – attempted mouth-to-mouth resuscitation of an injured police officer.

The officer who was killed was said by Mr Rowley to have been armed – but police later confirmed that was not the case.

In latest developments:

  • The prime minister said the UK terror threat level would remain at severe – its second highest – meaning an attack is “highly likely”
  • Westminster underground station was shut and remains open for interchange only
  • Home Secretary Amber Rudd urged everyone to remain calm but be vigilant and if they see anything they are concerned about report it to the police
  • A group of French schoolchildren were on the bridge and three were injured
  • 13 students from Edge Hill University in Lancashire were also caught up in the incident – two were taken to hospital and described as walking wounded; two others had minor injuries
  • People worried about family and friends can call the police casualty bureau on 0800 056 0944 or 0207 158 0010. Anyone with images or footage of the incident is urged to send them to
  • Kings College Hospital says eight patients are being treated there – six male, and two female. Two are critical and two are stable
  • St Thomas’ Hospital said two patients had been admitted – both are stable; the Royal London Hospital received one patient
  • The Port of London Authority said a woman was pulled alive from the River Thames near the bridge and was being treated for serious injuries

The incident outside Westminster is exactly the kind of scenario that security chiefs have been planning for.

It looks like the type of attack jihadis have wanted to carry out in Britain – namely attacking people with a vehicle and taking on the security forces with knives.

In the security services’ jargon, this is known as a “marauding attack” and is the hardest type of terrorist incident to predict and defend against. That means casualties, as we have seen in Nice and elsewhere, are inevitable.

But what matters just as much is how the police then respond.

Armed police at Parliament were able to stop the attacker. Within minutes, Westminster was flooded with more armed officers, including counter-terrorism specialists.

Inside Scotland Yard, teams of detectives began working on the next critical phase – establishing the suspect’s movements, whether he acted alone and, in tandem with their colleagues on the street, making sure London is as secure as it can be in light of these awful events.

Westminster remains locked down and it will remain so until Scotland Yard is certain the threat has been contained.

‘Screams and commotion’

Press Association political editor Andrew Woodcock witnessed the scenes unfolding from his office window overlooking New Palace Yard.

Media caption”Man in black moving his arm in a way that suggested he was either stabbing or striking the… policeman” – journalist Quentin Letts

“I heard shouts and screams from outside and looked out, and there was a group of maybe 40 or 50 people running round the corner from Bridge Street into Parliament Square.

“They appeared to be running away from something.”

“As the group arrived at the Carriage Gates, where policemen are posted at the security entrance, a man suddenly ran out of the crowd and into the yard.”

‘Mowed down’

An eye witness, Radoslaw Sikorski, a senior fellow at Harvard’s Centre for European Studies, posted a video to Twitter showing people lying injured on the road on Westminster Bridge.

Media captionSteve Voake, eyewitness: “I tried to stop people coming on to the bridge”

  • MPs were locked in the House of Commons for more than four hours and business suspended
  • Around 1,000 people were taken to Westminster Abbey for safety and were then being processed by police
  • The House of Commons and Lords will sit at their usual times on Thursday
  • Over the following days, there will be extra unarmed and armed officers on the streets of London
  • The White House said Mrs May had spoken to President Donald Trump about the attack
  • Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo says the Eiffel tower will go dark at midnight in homage to the London victims
  • London mayor Sadiq Khan praised citizens and emergency services for their “tremendous bravery” and said: “Londoners will never be cowed by terrorism.”

Metropolitan Police Federation chairman Ken Marsh said: “We offer our deepest sympathy to the family of the officer who has died. This incident shows the dangers our colleagues face on a daily basis.”

20 March 2017 is the first day of the astronomical spring

The astronomical spring begins on 20 March 2017 and ends on 20 June 2017.

Who cares it means winter is over…….   Roll on 26th of March when the clocks go forward and we go into BST ,  I have spent the majority of this winter ill,  will be so glad when summer comes,  I also reserve the right to complain in summer about being too hot 

Spring equinox 2015

It’s Monday… Roll on Easter break

It’s Monday morning and that can only mean one thing! Back to school and back to the drama!!
Making sure uniforms are washed, ironed, bags sorted and we actually have some bread to make their packed lunches! 

We have had such a nice chilled weekend, apart from Alex’s football we haven’t had to go out at all. 

I am slowly getting better, well enough to drive around, sort bits out etc.  I took Alex to his football match yesterday, and have to admit after being out for a couple of hours in the cold, my chest was getting quite bad,  Alex has been a star and done most of the cooking while I haven’t been well and Allan’s been working.  Not even any meltdowns from Ali in the last week. 

Alex has been really stressy the last few months, there has been a little bit of bullying at school but after calls and an email to the teachers, It seems to have settled down.
One of the problems with a kid being 6ft 1inches tall at the age of 13 and 3 months is that all the older kids seem to pick on him. especially when he is with his mates who are half his size,  this has caused Alex to be stressy,  the other problem is one of the kids in the road has picked on Alex since he was about 9, following him on the way home from school and calling him names etc,  this kid doesn’t even go to school now for whatever reasons, he is a couple of years older than Alex and just as tall but big like my Ali,  ok he is overweight the same as Ali,  anyhoo, as I was saying this has been going on for years with the name calling, etc and I am sure Alex is no innocent and gave as much as he got,  this finally came to a head not long ago when they got into a fight. Not that Alex actually did fight he just protected himself from being hurt and when the other kid was separated from him there wasn’t a mark on Alex, since the fight though there has been no more trouble and I think in a way Alex has learnt that if this is the best the kid has to offer then it’s nothing really to worry about.  less stress again. 

Ali, on the other hand, has had a brilliant week, we haven’t had one meltdown.  I don’t often blog about Ali and what happens but let’s say, life can really be hard at times having an autistic kid in the house, we all know about it and have the broken doors etc to show for it. Maybe it’s because I have been ill that he has been so chilled the last week or maybe its the fact that when he has got home from school he has spent the majority of the time on the Xbox one out of everyone’s way. 

But saying that I can tell the kids are tired,  they kind of get run down the last couple of weeks of term. they break up for Easter on the 31st and I think they will be ready for the two-week break,   I love the Easter breaks because it is not too long that Ali gets out of his routine. there used to be a time when even a week off school would upset him but as he has got older he is more accepting of the school holidays, although the long summer break is always a challenge. 

Allan has booked a week off work as well for the first week of the break so we are hoping to be able to actually spend some family time together,  get some stuff done around the house. and most important, we can all chill. 

Today my superpower is standing up!
After a hectic few days with very little rest, I am going to call on it many times today also!
My other superpower is gratitude
I am grateful for all the fun I had over the weekend watching Alex play football and chatting with the other footie mums .
I am grateful that I don’t actually have to leave the house today so doing very little else I can catch up on my washing. 
I am grateful that I am just a little bit stiff and achy, but I am alive!
I am grateful that I am finally starting to feel better and all the pills I have been popping have been doing their job and I am finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. 
I am grateful for my family.
I am grateful for amazing friends.
I am grateful for coffee and water todaI as I will be rehydrating lots today.
I am grateful for the peace today, no one around and just chilling between the washing loads. 
I am grateful for the fact that Alex remembered to take something out the freezer for dinner tonight but I am missing my kitchen so may actually cook dinner myself today. 

If I am honest, this time two weeks ago, I honestly thought I was dying, well not literally but you know what I mean,  I felt ill, very ill, it’s bad enough being sick without the problems being a chronic asthmatic can bring. We all take breathing for granted until we struggle to do it. 
I have never been a fan or a sympathetic ear of those who post multiple status updates on facebook saying how ill or depressed they are every day. I, of course, have sympathy for those who have a genuine illness or disability,  they can post away, I am talking about those who are just miserable fuckers who are just after attention every day, seeking sympathy for every cough and cold they have, because let’s face it, the rest of the time no one talks to them or comments on their status.  So when a friend said to me the other week before I was diagnosed with pneumonia, can she come around and I said that I wasn’t up to a visit because of being unwell, the first thing she said was she didn’t believe me because most normal people let everyone on Facebook let people know they are ill.
Which just goes to prove one thing.  I am not normal and never have been lol 

Now lets do Monday 👌👊😍

Rock and roll legend Chuck Berry has passed away :(

There have been so many celebrity deaths the last year or so and all worth a mention if I had the time, but to me, Chuck Berry was rock and roll,  he will be missed.
He is probably off playing with his own ding a ling as I type

Rock and roll legend Chuck Berry has died aged 90, police in the US state of Missouri report.

The singer was found unresponsive at lunchtime on Saturday, St Charles County police said.

Berry’s seven-decade career boasted a string of hits, including classics Roll Over Beethoven and Johnny B. Goode.

He received a lifetime achievement Grammy in 1984 and was among the first inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.

In a statement on Facebook, the St Charles County Police Department said they were called to reports of an unresponsive man at 12:40 local time (17:40 GMT).

“Unfortunately, the 90-year-old man could not be revived and was pronounced deceased at 1:26pm,” the statement continued.

“The St. Charles County Police Department sadly confirms the death of Charles Edward Anderson Berry Sr., better known as legendary musician Chuck Berry.”

Motown legends The Jacksons paid tribute.

“Chuck Berry merged blues & swing into the phenomenon of early rock’n’roll. In music, he cast one of the longest shadows. Thank You Chuck,” they tweeted.

Singer-songwriter Huey Lewis described him as “maybe the most important figure in all of rock and roll”.

“His music and influence will last forever,” he added.

Berry was born in St Louis, Missouri, in 1926, and had his first hit Maybellene in 1955.

Last year, he announced he would be releasing his first album in nearly four decades. He dedicated it to his wife of 68 years, Themetta “Toddy”.
