Getting ready for Halloween


Check out my new blog posts on my other sites:

I will be adding more as we go through the weeks. Tonight I am having a night off from parenting and so thought I would catch up on my weekly blog.

Half term was good as it meant I got to spend some time with my mum, and we took Henry to the local soft cafe where my son got to have a new haircut.

I have been taking Henry up to London most Mondays too, apart from this week as he did have a bit of nasty cold. I love taking him up to Hyde Park and St James park.

Now I am watching Only Fools and Horses on my Now TV box. I got to say this is a lovely brilliant little box and we can watch so much, so much cheaper than Sky TV.

Tonight I will be watching Strictly Come Dancing. It is been a great series so far, and still think Debbie McGee is the surprise for this year as I wasn’t expecting her to be as good as what she is.

I think Alexandra Burke is one of the favourites for this year.

I have also been watching The Apprentice, it seems that the candidates are getting worse, not better and I think my son Henry could come up with better ideas than these lot.

Tomorrow we are off to a shop called Dunelm, which is a really good low price store as we looking to give a home a make over. We have started to decorate for Halloween and got some bits from TK Maxx, which I will take photos of and put on my Seasonal Clear up page, once I clear some space on my phone.

So that’s it for this time round, I hope you have a good rest of the weekend and I will write more next week.

Meal Review and my day out in LONDON


Went to Bills restaurant in Epsom for lunch two Sundays ago and I said I would report back.

I had Steak and chips. Was nice, you don’t get much of a portion, for the price you pay, but still nice food. I had a lovely Honeycomb cheesecake, for dessert. Sorry for no picture, I ate it before I remembered to take one, but if I go there again, I will definitely order this again, at which I will take a photo.

See picture of my meal below:

I took photo after eating a bit of my meal, and just remembered to take a photo.

Today I took my son up London to meet my mum for lunch up in London, and spent sometime in St James Park, and found this gorgeous black swan.

I love taking the train to places in the week helps break up the days, and both my son and I get so much out of the places we go to.

St James Park is a gorgeous place to go and have a spot of lunch when the weather is good and the sun is shining.

I watched Strictly last night and wasn’t surprised by the result and loved the ending of Doctor Foster they have to bring back another series, and looking forward to watching more of Liar too, as there has to be another twist coming along.

I will be adding some new posts to my Seasonal Clean ups page, on

As I go through the weeks aswell, so look out for those to come.

Sunday Girl


It is Sunday evening and I am now ready to get ready for bed and relax for the evening.

I like to take advantage on Sundays and get bits done I am not able to get done in the week. I had a steaming hot bath, a nice cooked breakfast in my local cafe, spent some time in the park so my son could have a good run around and then did a bit of shopping in Wilkos.

We then popped to Homebase as we are in the process of changing our home around a bit, and looked for some new lights. I managed to find some that caught my eye.

We then returned home and I had a clear out in my Guest Room/Home Office.

Then my mum arrived with my niece at which my son and niece had fun playing, whilst my mum and I sorted out the garden.

All in all a good structured day. Now watching Strictly Come Dancing results, and soon will depart to bed to get ready for tomorrows adventures too.

Many thanks for reading,
