Hmm Thinking Out Aloud - Love and Marriage :)


Hmm at this day and age.....would i really want to be a Mum, without marriage? My thoughts: As a husband/wife, as well as mother.....I think you should have more rights in the event of a marriage break up, or else ANYONE can come along and break up a happy home. 

Personally speaking, I would much rather be the woman a man chooses to marry, than to be his bit on the side! ☺I would much rather be the woman a man chooses to marry, than to be his bit

Merry Christmas All x

Well it's that time of year again. I have no idea where this past year has gone. ☺ Thank you to all who have been there to love and support me throughout a particularly bad year. 2017 has been a sad year for me, as many of you already know, because i lost my father in March. No words can describe how hard it is to lose someone you love, nothing prepares you for that loss,  which is the reason why I shall also be thinking about friends who have also lost their loved ones over this past year. The first year is always the hardest, so they say.

Here's to all of you who will be thinking about/missing your loved ones this Christmas time.

If any of you are travelling to see friends/relatives, i would just like to say "please take care and travel safely."

Most of all, i would like to wish you all a joyous Christmas and a very prosperous New Year.

Love Fran xxx

Divorce and Children

I would have behaved like a monster if my husband/partner ended our relationship, he moved to another country with our children and they promptly moved another partner into the home, with them!  The law is an ass to itself, if it allows these circumstances to happen.  Of course I would be upset if another person tried to take my place as my child's parent, it is only natural.

Thinks the law should force the residential parent, to make certain that they take their child/ren to the non-residential parent, every other weekend, only if there is no proven evidence of violence or anything of a sexual nature etc,  towards the children. 

If it was left to the responsibility of the residential parent to do this, then either parent, if they loved their children,  would not want to move too far away from the non-residential parent.

I am a firm believer that both parents, if they are responsible parents,  should take an active role in bringing up their own children,  even if they divorce/separate.

I saw both of my children every other weekend, after my ex husband and I divorced.  Our children are well adjusted children and both of them are Graduate students.  Most importantly,  both my ex and I never missed out seeing them grow up into lovely human beings.  They were and are,  always well loved by both parents :)

Ps What happens if your partner took the children to live abroad, he/she moved in with someone who was wealthy, however you are made redundat/you don'the have a job to be able to afford to go and visit them? Then what?  :( If my children were young and they went to live in a country wit an ex, I certainly would not want to move to a country where I cannot speak the language! Even if I was wealthy, I would not want to keep plane hopping, just to see my children! It is a different matter if your children choose to live abroad when they are much older ☺

Thinks both parents should take an active part in bringing up the children, for the sake of the children.

British Subjects Only! :) Family And Friends Are Important To Me!

Eww so many men keep messaging me, asking me to be in a relationship with them....many are from abroad! I am very unlikely to ever be in a relationship with someone who lives in another country!!! For one, I would not consider being in a long distant relationship, whereby you had to travel outside of England just to see each other and two, what happens if you divorce, which country would the child/children reside in should one party want to live in a different country?!

ALL of my boyfriends and my ex-husband, have all been British subjects. I have never been in a relationship with someone who lives abroad. They were all British Subjects when i met them. My ex-husband, was indeed English. When we married, we had a similar background. Both of us went to school in England. We BOTH had a British upbringing. It seemed fine because we both had so much in common at the time. We were brought up with the same culture and religion too.

We both spoke the same language to each other, Lol i have a hard job understanding some men, therefore i did not want the added complication of not fully understanding the language that he spoke to me in, when in a relationship together. 😊

My Mum was of the British culture because my Nan was English living in India during the British Raj. I love the different cultures but personally, I would only ever be in a relationship with someone else who was British too. My choice. 😊

I know i have had some attention from a few Americans recently and I know they speak the same language as me, however i would NEVER consider having a relationship whereby i had to keep travelling back and forth to another country! I do not intend moving away from England/from the country i grew up in. I feel quite at home here. I would never consider licing in a country whereby the majority of my family and friends do not reside. Family and friends are important to me. I have a big family and most of the family i know, all reside here in the UK.  ☺

Paddington Bear 2

2 Weeks Ago

I had a super weekend with my family members. My sister, brother-in-law and nephew Josh all visited my Mum. I met up with them all and we spent a lovely day at Rutland Water. We had lunch at the Harbour Cafe.

After they left, I decided to go and watch the new #Paddington2 movie at the Showcase de lux Cinema. I must say that i loved the film. I have been a fan of Paddington Bear and Hugh Grant for a long time. The film was great fun and kids from 1-92 will absolutely love it.

A Slight Spoiler

Poor Paddington is accused of a crime he did not commit. He goes to jail. The Brown's decide to try and clear his name because they believe he is innocent. Hugh Grant was absolutely brilliant as Mr Buchanan. A man of many disguises, including a Nun's Habit. 😁

You must go and watch the film. #AFunFilm 😀

RIP David Cassidy

RIP David Cassidy - He was a singer, actor, he was a member of the Partridge family and he was my teenage idol.  He very sadly passed away after an illness.

I loved the partridge family as a young teenager. David Cassidy posters adorned my bedroom wall when I was a teenager. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see David perform at a Westend theatre, the Hippodrome, when he starred in'Time'.

He recorded a number of songs: "I think I love you", "I am a Clown", "Day dreamer", "Could It Be Forever", Cherished to name just a few.

I was so sorry to learn about David Cassidy passing away this morning. He will always be remembered as one of my first schoolgirl crushes.

RIP David Cassidy xx
