What Fridays mean to me

Standard

Friday some people will be clock watching for their final day at work to finish so they can get ready for the weekend ahead.

For me I look forward to spending time with my husband and my son. I do like my Wednesdays and Fridays as it is time for myself, and I use it as a way to catch up on my projects like my new book which is soon to be published, I will let you know when and catch up on my blogs.

Fridays was at one time the day I would go out for the evening, when I worked up in London, and would do the same sometimes on a Saturday or Sunday, as I would follow a rugby team.

I like how my life has changed, sometimes it can feel sad that it has, but I like how my life is now and the people who are in it. It is my day to catch up on my “to do’s” and chill as it is the end of the week.

How do you like to spend your Friday I would love to hear.

2017 to 2018

Standard

The year 2017 has been a funny year which whizzed by as soon as we landed in January and no doubt 2018 will do the same.

The year started off badly with my anxiety getting the better of me and I ended up in hospital and then I lost my job at the end of 2017. On the brighter side I now ready for some new beginnings and the new year is a good excuse for a fresh start.

I have made a few new years resolutions, if you didn’t read my last blog, my first one was to keep up to date with my emails as they do get out of hand, second is to lose some weight as I have put on some extra pounds, so keep up to date with my fitness and last to film again for my Youtube channel.

I think cutting them down to four makes it more easier to follow and achieve.

How was your 2017?

What are your resolutions for the new year ahead?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Relieved about Christmas

Standard

It is two days since Christmas and I can already feel the relief that this year is all done. Well almost. Next it will be new years.

I try to avoid the shops this time of year because how busy it all gets, just too many people, and a lot of rushing around.

I just want to take it easy post Christmas and make the most of the time I have with my family and husband.

I also like to have like I do from Autumn to spring is have a clear out. Today it was clearing out my inbox to one of my google email accounts. It just gets so out of hand.

It feels good to have a clear out and I have decided, my first new years resolution, to go through my emails weekly and have regular clear out so it doesn’t pile up. I will be making more resolutions as I get nearer to the new year.

So how do you feel after Christmas? Are you like me and relieved?

Do you make new years resolutions? what are they?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Christmas is upon us

Standard

It is the 21st of December and not being smug, and not trying to cause alarm to others, but I am all set for the festive cheer.

Christmas prezzies all bought and taken over to nannies and all there is left is to drive over on Christmas Day, to stay at my mums for Christmas.

I have been enjoying watching a film of an evening whilst snuggled up in bed.

Watched an old classic yesterday “Romance In The Stone” Starring Micheal Douglas.

Not sure what is on tonight but I hope there is a classic film on.

I enjoyed the strictly come dancing final, and was surprised by the winner, but definitely deserved.

I was a bit miffed with the final of the apprentice. It should have been one winner not both and was a cop out in my book.

I am loving the new song by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds- Holy Mountain.

Great song, my song for this part of the year and one I have not stopped playing.

What is your song for this part of the year that you have heard? I would love to hear from you.

Looking forward to when the new series of The Voice, Ollie Muirs will be joining the coaching panel this year. Will be interesting.

Then we will be heading into a new year, so I will post again during the week to summon up 2017 before reflecting on the new year ahead.

So until then have a good Christmas and I will post as we head into the new year.

Many thanks for reading,

Christmas Music

Standard

It is 12 days until Christmas and I thought I was done until I realized I had some chocolate father Christmases that I was supposed to give out last year but didn’t so will be giving these to some special people this Christmas. It is OK they are still in date but I only have 4 so I need an another one.

Apart from that I am all done. I have all my decor done, and all gifts appart from one wrapped in tissue paper and gift bags. So the next stage is to deliver them all.

I have been posting some new blogs on my website:

As I have updated my fitness diary page, about my mojo back for training.

Posted a new blog on my website:

https://theparentingadventurestipsandtricks.wordpress.com

Talking about how to keep those nasty bugs and bay.

I have been listening to some Christmas music and watched this documentary on Youtube about the making of Band Aid check it out on Youtube.

I always think about the Band Aid song and play it at this time of year, to remember how music tried to make a different to those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

It is amazing music can bring so many people together and what good it does and what it did was amazing.

I have been watching Strictly Come Dancing, and predicted that it would be Molly and AJ that would be out, as Debbie McGee and Alexandra Burke were for me the best two of the night.

I am off out now but I will blog what I have been up to next week, until then many thanks for reading,

I love a Christmas Market

Standard

It is Wednesday already I had a lovely weekend in Southampton seeing my husband’s family, they had a Christmas Market on which I love and had a drink in the German Bar they had there.

This morning I woke up feeling groggy no idea why, but my son has this weekend not been well, had a bit of a tummy bug so perhaps I caught part of it. I am okay now, I have posted some pictures of my husband’s and I Christmas Home Decor along with our new lights we have purchases. Check out my Seasonal clean up page.

I have also written a book review of the book I read called The Secret of a Slummy Mummy, which I really enjoyed. Click above to read.

I watched Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night still and what a show it was, the theme was musicals, thoroughly enjoyable I thought Debbie McGee was outstanding, I hope I can move as good as she can, I think could be a finalist.

I have been watching a lot of football aswell the past few days as my husband’s team Southampton, played on Sunday and my son is obsessed with Sky Sports. Thank the lord we have the NOW TV box.

I am so looking forward to Christmas this year and I have completed all my shopping, yay. So super happy, and already have started playing Christmas music. So I hope you have had a good week so far until next week.

Many thanks for reading,

Getting ready for Christmas

Standard

It is Friday and I am off, hooray. So nice not to have to rush around getting ready for work, even though this is also kind of my work, but it feels more like a hobby rather than work as I enjoy blogging so much.

I have just done my gift guide for babies and toddlers check out my WordPress site:

https://theparentingadventurestipsandtricks.wordpress.com

All I need is two more people to buy gifts for, for Christmas and then got to get two birthday gifts. It is a busy time of year that today my hubby and I off to Southampton today to visit my husband’s family.

Henry will  be spending some time with my parents my side, whilst we take the long drive to Hampshire.

I am so getting into the spirit of Christmas that today I am playing for the first time this year some Christmas music. I don’t have a specific song that I like my husband loves the song called “I wish I could home for Christmas”.

I have all my decorations up which I will take photos of and put on my seasonal clear up page, soon.

I wish everyone a great week and see you all next week.

Many thanks for reading,
