Motown Takes Me Back

Hi All, A new Weekly Midweek blog post.

It is so cold outside now, that I had to have some Supernoodles for my lunch. I know there will be people tutting as I say this, but I like them when it is cold, with a cup of tea and perhaps a Jammie Dodger for afterwards.

The tea I drink usually during the day is Earl Grey, my favourite tea.

I have been sorting out my home, starting my Autumn clear up, I did mention this on my Monday blog http://www.carriesrealworld.com/weekly-blogsvlogs

See pictures of my new look for my make up and toiletry station in my bedroom.

I love my little Make Up Storage Caddy from Lakeland’s at £16.99 on the top of the corner unit. It really has helped to store my make up and because it didn’t store so much, made me have a clear out. I felt so much better for doing so. The toiletry bags next to it, either side on the top are from Cath Kidston. It was an offer they were doing 2 toiletry/make up bags for £18. One of the toiletry/make up bags stores my make up remover wipes, pads and evening face creams. The other one stores my lip sticks.

My son, Henry if you read my blog on http://theparentingadventurestipsandtricks.wordpress.com  

I talk about transitions, and his cot has now been changed into, a toddler bed.

It was a bit different for him the first night, but he has soon gotten used to it. He is napping now, as he had been to nursery today and he had a good day. I think he is ready to do a full day, so that will be one of the next transitions. You learn as you go, as a parent when your child is ready for change or the next step.

I am at the moment listening to Diana Ross, Greatest Hits album. I love her music and Motown, and she is the Motown queen as far as I am concerned. It was music I grew up on, as a child.

My dad every Sunday would before he went off to the pub, in the mornings, play his many records and at least one song would be the lady herself. As soon as I hear her music, it takes me straight back to those times.

Sunday’s were a day when, unlike today, everything would be closed, apart from some of the newsagents, so people could pick up their Sunday papers and the pubs would open at 12pm. Other than that, it was a quiet day and we would often some Sundays, if my dad didn’t go down to the pub, go and feed the ducks by Hammersmith Bridge.

Or we would go to meet my dad in Chelsea and then stay out for the day.

How times have changed.
