It’s The Little Thing’s That Give Me So Much Pleasure.

It’s the little thing’s that give me so much pleasure.


Who would have thought That I would get so much pleasure from a simple little gift? So, for Mother’s Day my girls got me what is known as the ‘PAPERANG’At first glance I thought “ Oh, another camera wonderful” However, it wasn’t a camera as such.

So this amazing little device not only will print my photos on the move, it is also a memo pad, a to-do list, it can give me a name card, it can make banners too.

So how does it work? You simple connect via your Bluetooth on any iPhone and Android Mobile device and here’s the best part.

You don’t even need to be connected to the internet. 💥 Now that’s what I call genius.

I have now purchased a protective case because it’s quite delicate and I wouldn’t want to drop it.

This handy little PAPERANG is a blessing because sometimes I forget to take extra business cards in my handbag and find myself having to write my details on a piece of paper when people ask me my Website or Twitter name etc.

So now all I have to do is print a Name Card or I may take a photo and someone would like a copy so I can now print that too, job done.

Click the link below which will take you to for your’s an absolute must and small enough to carry around even in your pocket.

Let me know your thoughts after you purchase yours!

Point to Point Horse Racing

Here are a few of the shots I took above, feel free to see more on my Facebook page at Belinda Travels The Globe.

I had a very interesting day on Saturday 23rd March at Overton Farm’ In Lanark at the Horse Racing, a first for me and very much enjoyed.

I took my Camera along (No surprise) to capture what I knew was going to be some pretty fab shots of the horses up close.

On first arrival I thought; Oops! I’m wearing my jeans and a baggy old jumper with of course my walking books thinking prior to arriving that it’s being held in a Farm so lots of mud.

The first thing I spot are people in tweed jackets, smart trousers and the ladies were well dressed too, however, once we drove little further into the field there were many others in jeans and Wellington boots etc.

Panic over, clearly those in the tweed jackets were members, ‘Perhaps need to become member’ 🤔

We parked the car up and brought the food and flasks etc from the boot and the chairs then walked a short distance to get the best area to sit.

What a great day we had, there was a burger bar, a cafe and much more so it wasn’t disappointing and I would definitely recommend it, I’ll be back for sure.

Forthcoming Books

Hey, Guy’s just thought it were time I gave you all an update on forthcoming books, and ‘Behind Closed Doors’

So as you know Behind Closed Doors is due to be published around Dec this year 2019, perhaps a little sooner.

As you will have noticed I have been playing around with different covers for this book, the first I had struggled with in respect of the upload and dimensions via my publishing company.

So I have since tried one or two other designs, you will have to wait and see which one I actually choose, please feel free to tell me your preference your input would be greatly appreciated.

I will be attending Sean Ross Abbey Commemorations again this coming July which you will all know is a very emotional time every year and will continue to be so until justice is finally served.

I have a couple of travel plans which you can keep up to date with on my Diary link on the home page.

I haven’t as much planned this year with the current circumstances in regards to my husband’s health, if you aren’t aware of this as yet then please see my Blog on Cancer.

The news here today is that I have four, yes you heard it correctly FOUR Books to write and publish and as long as all goes to plan they should all be finished and published between Winter 2021 and Spring 2022.

Food Glorious Food at BENKAZ

Food Glorious Food at BENKAZ

I’ve always been a lover of italian food and thought I would try this recommended restaurant called Benkaz in Shotts, North Lanarkshire.

I wasn’t disappointed in fact I came away feeling very satisfied rather than overly bloated.

Here is what I had:

starters – SAUTED MUSHROOMS Served in a creamy garlic sauce with side salad.

Main Course – PENNE NAPOLI PASTA in a tomato and basil sauce served with garlic bread and a side of chips.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I savoured every mouthful, I didn’t want it to end…

What’s Your Response When Someone Tells You Your Not Very Fashion Conscious?

What’s Your Response When Someone Tells You Your Not Very Fashion Conscious?

Fashion, what’s your thoughts? In season, last season, colour coordinated or do you even care?

Well, here is my take on fashion, for one I am so LAST SEASON and I will tell you why.

I go into the shops and see something I really like then I look at the price, now I’m not a cheap skate here far from it but when I see something that I think is rather overpriced that’s it, I ain’t buying it.

Nope, instead I’ll be like ok I will keep an eye on it and when it goes on sale I will grab it, although if I feel this is an item that will fly off the shelf and I really do love it then I will make an exception.

Here’s the thing though, I may wear it once then it goes in the wardrobe or packed away until the weather permits me to wear it again, I have on occasion been very guilty of not wearing it at all and the label still be attached.

What do I do with it? I give it to charity along with countless other items even household goods. I can’t be the only person here that does this. 

The way I see it why throw it out when someone who may have nothing can get some use from it.

While I’m on the subject, something I noticed about retailers many years ago and I’m not sure if this still happens? When they put end of season cloths in the sale and those that don’t sell are all either gathered together for another store or put in a skip.

Now I know for a fact that they do or did this because I worked in retail, my thing is why not box everything up e,g men and woman’s cloths children’s cloths even household goods and put them in lorries/wagons and take them all to those in countries that are less fortunate than we are?

The homeless here in the U.K? Even people from war-torn countries who have had their homes bombed and are left with nothing.

Maybe it’s just me and yes I know those who know me are like; ‘Come on B, you want to put the world to rights but it’s not that easy’ Well actually it really is that easy but I’m not going to start ranting on about that because that is another story.

I am however and always have been colour coordinated the colour of my top must match my shoes and my handbag, even my eye makeup has a style all of its own.

I do have scruffy day’s like most people but only if I know I don’t have to leave the house and more often than not you’ll find me in my jeans.

Send me in some of your best shots in fashion I will feature them in an issue of PERUSE.

Now there is an offer you can’t refuse. (See Disclaimer)
