⛱Strange times happening World Wide at the moment……adding another Blog but this time about a very recent fantastic fortnight holiday we’ve had in the wonderful Maldives. Luckily we arrived back home before this virus took over one of the Islands & put it into lock down. Our journey took us from Heathrow, through Sri Lanka & onto Male Maldives, then seaplane to Meedhupparu Island. We’ve been to this Island a couple of times before so knew what to expect, but the biggest change was the shape of the Island…..depending on the winds & tide it shifts the sand around, wearing it away on one side of the Island and pushing it around to another part of the Island, changing the shape all the time. Having a conversation with a Manager he told us that December was a very windy month, so this did not help the change. We had the same room we had before but the beach in front of us had completely gone, leaving the palm trees creating shade & no beach directly in front all gone ! On previous visit there was a wall around part of the Island helping to save the beach but that has now been replaced with a huge barrier in the water, the wall has been dropped into the sea. This part of the Island has a massive beach area at the moment, I suppose depending on the time of year you visit, the beach would again be changed ! I certainly feel at the moment I would like to be back there but not to be stranded even on an Island ! ⛱🌞🌊
🌟WOW🌟… An announcement on 20th November 2020 from Donny, he’s going back to LAS VEGAS with his first ever solo residency performing at @HarrahsVegas from AUGUST 2021, now that’s a complete surprise to me & MANY fans I would imagine. EXCITING NEWS, it’s so needed during these times !😎 Will travelling be allowed by then ?!😜👍😁
Now I’m off to watch Donny’s ‘Facebook Chat’ to see what I’ve missed as couldn’t be there LIVE.
Donny & Marie have performed for 11 Years at The Flamingo and yesterday they officially announced they are to close the Show on November 16th 😂😘 I have now BOOKED to see the Show for the first time in OCTOBER staying at The Flamingo & hopefully bump into Donny & Marie in the lift or somewhere as we’ll be in the same building during my week stay !! Can only hope but I will make all efforts to make it happen ! Poor Donny & Marie X
Check out @GMA’s Tweet: https://twitter.com/GMA/status/1108712347747532801?s=09 with @PaulaFaris It will be a VERY sad day but OH BOY what a Show it will be…….Yeah Baby ! We will ALWAYS be there with them wherever & whatever their new Projects involve because they’re SO Special XX 💋💜😘😉💋💜
🕺Watching first Episode of Season 1 of ‘The Masked Singer UK’ on Saturday…..trying to guess who is behind the mask…..DONNY are YOU there somewhere ! Did wonder about the ‘Unicorn‘ clues as outfit had wonderful ‘technicolour‘ feathers (Joseph) but not you ! Waiting to watch Sundays’ episode with group of new masked singers, so we’ll see if you’re one of them ?! OR are you on the programme doing something completely different, such a mystery LOVE it ! UPDATE: So you’re on the Panel 25th Jan Donny, takes away the quessing game at last !!! 🤣🕺🤣🕺🤣 Been all so hush hush!
🕺🤣 Donny will be on our Screens sooon on the Panel, CANNOT wait !!
The Day is Friday 31st January, the place is an Auction in my local town and tucked in one of the boxes for Sale was this……..I never purchased it back in 1977, why oh why not !😊
So this Box contained lots & lots of other magazines which I didn’t fancy, BUT this was a ‘Lot’ to bid for just for this Annual alone ! Yes won it, so another Osmond memorabilia to add to my collection 😊👍🎵🎶🎤🎹🎼
LOVED finding this….there are always lots of Vinyls too at these Auctions so yes you’ve guessed I have to search through them for Osmond Vinyls & yes you can sometimes find them but never anything different as I have a lot in my collection already (BUT any I find go to the FRONT of the pile for everyone to see !! ) Have my Vinylplayer all set up & enjoying listening to them all. 🎶🎵🎹🎼
Have a look at a new fabulous Clothing Boutique ‘Osmond & Co.‘ I’ve just bought my first item, a black t-shirt which is so cool with ‘ Osmond & Co ‘ written on the front & at $20( £ 16 ) is good value for money. Ok have to add $10 on for delivery to the UK but still good value. I will update blog when it has arrived & how long it takes, just for anyone who would like to know those details ! Hope this new venture is very successful for the Ladies & I will return to the site OFTEN !
IT’s here, IT’s here ! Yes arrived Wed 3rd July, posted out on 20th June, but I did have to collect it from the Post Office today as unfortunately it had a VAT Customs Charge & Post Office Charge to pay on it ! Bit of a shame getting stopped by Customs, another time it may not be, oh well, just makes the t-shirt more expensive. So just be aware these charges may be added on OR not ! Still very pleased with the T-shirt, it will be the first item packed in the suitcase bound for Vegas in October ! 😘xx
