Welcome to my weekly roundup…Before I start I would like to wish everyone who celebrates Easter a very happy Easter Holiday…

It is now time to grab a pew and a drink or some Easter chocolate, relax and have a read…

Not so much this week as I have been busy …Aston came back from his Thai nannies plus 1…Little Lily’s friend went home I think she was pleased after a week of sharing me…she said there are too many people here nannie…Bless her she likes a bit of quiet time and with 4 children in the house that doesn’t really happen…The last one goes home on Monday…Back to some semblance of normal, I hope…haha…

The first post of the week was on Climate change and plastic which is a hot topic now…There have been peaceful demonstrations in London hosted by the Extinction Rebellion… Peaceful protests started on Monday in London today marks the sixth consecutive day of disruption,  echoed in 80 cities, from India to the US the aim to get governments to sit up and start acting now not later when it may be too late. After six consecutive days, I am sure the British government now know what the feelings of the masses are as there has been so much support…Long Live people power…

Healthy eating…It really is too hot here to even contemplate cooking or even eating my diet has been mostly liquid…Water by the gallon…I also included a lovely pomelo salad which is now in season here…

Wednesday it was time for Sally’s and Carol’s post on B5 or pantothenic acid and as I have previously stated I am loving this series and learning so much as well thanx to Sally and her expertise on Health Matters…

Waste Not! Want Not! was my next post…Climate change is high on many peoples agenda this week with protesters out in their 100’s…I really do hope the momentum doesn’t fade and is kept going but it was heartwarming to see the public reacting as they did to make their point and peacefully it now up to those who can to LISTEN …

About Carol Taylor:

Enjoying life in The Land Of Smiles I am having so much fun researching, finding new, authentic recipes both Thai and International to share with you. New recipes gleaned from those who I have met on my travels or are just passing through and stopped for a while. I hope you enjoy them.

I love shopping at the local markets, finding fresh, natural ingredients, new strange fruits and vegetable ones I have never seen or cooked with. I am generally the only European person and attract much attention and I love to try what I am offered and when I smile and say Aroy or Saab as it is here in the north I am met with much smiling.

Some of my recipes may not be in line with traditional ingredients and methods of cooking but are recipes I know and have become to love and maybe if you dare to try you will too. You will always get more than just a recipe from me as I love to research and find out what other properties the ingredients I use contain to improve our health and wellbeing.

The environment is also something I am passionate about and there will be more on this on my blog this year

Exciting for me hence the title of my blog, Retired No One Told Me! I am having a wonderful ride and don’t want to get off, so if you wish to follow me on my adventures, then I bid you welcome! I hope you enjoy the ride also and if it encourages you to take a step into the unknown or untried, you know you want to…….Then, I will be happy!

MeWe is a new social media and one which many of us are turning to mainly migrating over to as FB has banned many of my friends and for what seems no good reason that we can see I hope you will join us there.


Lastly, the Bloggers Bash annual award voting is live...But only until the 24th so please if you haven’t already voted for your favourites then please do as there are some great blogs who writers have been nominated…

Thank you once again for reading this post I hope you all having a great Easter weekend xx
