Rainy days and hot weather


I don’t want to moan about the heat, because in Britain I have come to know bad summers where there has been less hot days than cold days.

The heat has affected my sleep but I am still not going to moan.

It felt good getting out early this morning, dropping my son off at nursery, but was tired out from walking to walk anymore, I had to get the bus back.

Now I am sitting on my bed, sweating buckets, but I know it not gonna be any cooler outside, and like I said there are thunderstorms on the way.

Since writing this blog it has rained and we did have a thunderstorm, so entertained myself by cleaning and playing some tunes, and watching some videos on Youtube.

The tune I am loving at the moment is by Ultravox, “Dancing with tears in my eyes”

What tunes do you like to play when it is raining and you don’t want to go outside?

I’d love to hear from you.

Visiting London


I just wrote a post about Living on £20 a week in London when I came across this article on Bloglovin about 53 Free things to do in London.

I am proud to be a Londoner and do feel sadness when terrible things happen like the knife crime, it is such a shame, but apart from that it is a great place to go.

I love walking around the National parks, and visiting the museums.

Go and check this article above if you are thinking about travelling to London.

Living on £20 a week


As a lover of Youtube, I came across this video about a young girl who was set a challenge to only spend £20 a week in London, and it inspired me, to look at my own finances.

Watch video below:

It amazes me how much it is to have a sandwich in a coffee shop, compared to making the same sandwich at home, yet I can’t help myself, so going to spend more time using up what I have at home before I go out and buy anything.

Travelling up to London, and back to Epsom is about £10 a time, for one journey, so gonna start finding other travel methods instead.

See what I can do locally rather than travelling up to London all the time, I just love to walk up there and my son loves the train, so perhaps I should just spend money on my Oyster cards, and then it will help make the journey cheaper.

How do you save money ? I would love to hear from you.

Is Football Coming Home?


Tonight’s the night, Semi Final time. Check out my blog post on wrote on my blog site 

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?

Went to the Cinema


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.
