Is Football Coming Home?

Standard

Tonight’s the night, Semi Final time. Check out my blog post on wrote on my blog site https://sportsandfitnesspassion.wordpress.com 

I feel I need to be careful about what I say as I in no way want to jinx tonight’s result, I just believe it will be a good game and we just have to play our hearts out, until we win it.

My favourite World Cup song for me, because it has such significance, it was when I first began to love football, was World in Motion. England’s World Cup song from Italia 90.

I still get goose bumps when I here Football’s Coming home.

I can’t end this blog without mentioning Nessun Dorma, my dad could not stop playing this song and always one of his favourites songs and mine too. It brings so many good memories.

What is your favourite World Cup song?

Many thanks for reading,

Went to the Cinema

Standard

Whilst it was boiling hot outside, my other half and I decided to take a trip to Wimbledon, have a few drinks whilst watching the football, France Vs Argentina, and then take a trip to the cinema.

Whilst watching the football in the Prince Of Wales Pub, I had a glass of Old Moat Cider, Cherry Berry. Very nice and refreshing drink that I had to take a photo. I would definitely have that again.

We decided to see Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. The tickets were £19.25 each but we managed as it wasn’t busy to upgrade for free and sit in the Premier Seats. We went to the Odeon Cinema in Wimbledon.

The film was good packed with action and surprise, and it wasn’t too unrealistic.

You felt sorry, well I did, for the Dinosaurs, you wanted them to be saved, apart from the big one, which you’ll see if you go to see the film. I liked that there wasn’t too much romance, and it was about saving the Dinosaurs from being killed. I wouldn’t definitely see it again when it comes out on DVD.

So what have you been up to ? What films have you seen ? I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Great Weekends

Standard

Picture I took up at The Epsom Downs, from the Beafeater in Tattenham Corner

I had a brilliant bank holiday weekend, spending time family. We spent sometime close by the River Thames, having a drink in Putney.

There some really nice bars in Putney along the river and along the high street.

Then we head a lovely meal up at the Epsom Downs on the Sunday in the Beafeater, and had a lovely Sunday lunch. Definitely would recommend.

Then last weekend, took Henry to Rugby Tots, which is great for children 2 years and upwards, and get to know their colours and learn some rugby skills, like scoring a try and kicking the ball. Then watched the Epsom Derby, this is great day out, watching some horse racing and you can take your own picnics along, whilst sunbathing (when the weather is nice, like it was).

The weekend just gone, my mum and I took my son to Hobbledown, which has some animals and kids playing areas, where they can climb, jump and slide. They even have an indoor softplay area too.

So good to have these days out, as it is good for those memories that last forever.

How do you spend your weekends?  Where do  you like to go? It would be great to hear from you and gather some ideas.

Many thanks for reading,

Wedding Fever

Standard

Since the royal wedding last Saturday I now have wedding fever and won’t stop watching it. It was such a beautiful wedding and day, that now I just want to keep reliving it.

It takes me back to my day. I married in Southampton, in a Tudor Hall, which I found whilst watching a documentary about Southampton, then saw it in a picture in a wedding venue magazine.

Choosing a venue can be hard as you can get married in most places now. I originally wanted to get married at Arundel Castle, but this was way out of our budget, so then looked at getting married at the local Racecourse, Goodwood, but then there was accommodation, because I have a lot of family who would be travelling from London and from north of England.

So as soon as I saw the documentary about the Tudor Hall in Southampton I knew this was the place. It has to feel right and when you look at a venue take a moment to take it all in, can you picture your wedding there?

Can you decorate it as you’d like?

Is there good accommodation nearby?

In our case there was.

The only issue we had was our wedding clashed with the Boat Show in Southampton, so many of the hotels had already been booked up. Keep in contact with the Event Managers of the Venue in case they have a staff change over which they did at the hotel we chose. What had been agreed in their contract, when we payed the deposit hadn’t been carried out, and so we had to make further alterations as the hotel was also holding our wedding reception afterwards.

Then we had to at last minute find a new DJ as the one we booked had cancelled out on the day 4 hours before our wedding reception was about to start.

It didn’t all go to plan but it was a great day and would love to relive it again if I could.

Many thanks for reading,

Tips for your wedding day.

Standard

It is Sunday, not a day I usually post on, but as I have a free Sunday afternoon to myself for a change I thought I would take advantage. I have already fitted in some exercise, a coffee and some retail therapy, now it is time to write.

I came across this article on 5 Tips to Get Ready Faster In the Morning (see link below):

http://frame.bloglovin.com/?post=6308359871&blog=12361135&frame_type=none

I watched part of the Eurovision song contest lastnight and was I felt already predicted who would win. Let’s face it even if Bucks Fizz returned and took their clothes off we wouldn’t win now, but I still try and be hopeful.

I am looking forward to the Royal Wedding next week and also the FA Cup Final which is my favourite football competition and Chelsea are in the final so fingers cross we win.

I thought I would share some of my top tips for those who maybe also getting married next weekend.

Tip 1# Always give yourself time for perspective, it will help with the stress, and practice breathing.

Tip 2# Remember it is your day so don’t forget to put your foot down, so other people don’t try and dictate what you should do.

Tip 3# Get bits ready the night before, like put your dress hanging up ready with wedding veil, if you are wearing one, with shoes and underwear.

Tip 4# Have time to yourself, kind of related to the first tip, but it is important to have time just you and have that glass of wine the night before, it will help the nerves.

Tip 5# Get others to help you as much as possible, as it can be stressful planning a wedding by yourself, it is good to have people who can make the tea whilst you get your make up on, or does your make up for you, as long as they know what they are doing.

So if you are getting married this week to, then congratulations and enjoy the day as much a possible as trust me before you know it, it will be the honeymoon and you’ll start to forget the big day. So enjoy it as much as possible.

Many thanks for reading,
