Super Sunday

Standard

What a glorious Sunday it has been, my mum looked after my son for the morning and afternoon, whilst my husband and I ran some errands and had a coffee, in our local Nero. I love their Chai Latte.

Plus I have a new book out and published called The Peabody years.

Available in Kindle edition and Paperback on Amazon.com. It is book sharing my story of growing up in Peabody Estate in Hammersmith and the many sad and happy memories I have had living in Peabody Estate.

It has been a good weekend, yesterday was spent writing my next book, which is going to follow up of The Parenting Adventures, Nursery to School years.

Writing is my passion and I love it, and also love books at the moment I am listening to Mel Robbins The 5 Second Rule and reading a book called Two steps Forward, and I will write a review on both once I have completed those.

I also watched my favourite film called You’ve Got Mail, with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

So what have you been up to this weekend I would love to hear.

Many thanks for reading,

Queens Music Lives on through film

Standard

Following on from my previous post TV and Music I am Loving at the moment,

I came across this video of Queen Rehearsing for Live Aid 1985.

Since seeing the film Bohemian Rhapsody I have become a huge Queen fan. I was before but the film has made me more of a fan now.

Here’s an interview with Rami Malek Discussing his Freddie Mercury transformation.

I think he portrayal of Freddie Mercury was brilliant and uncanny.

I do like Adam Lambert too, and I think he had bought Queen back to life along with the rest of the band, and his voice complements the music really well.

No one will ever replace Freddie and I think everyone knows that, but it is good that they have bought Queens music back to life.

What do you think?

Many thanks for reading,

Things I would love to see in 2019

Standard

The things I would love to see in 2019 are a final deal on Brexit, is it going to happen or not?

I would like to see Chelsea get into Europe at least, if we and doesn’t look like it, don’t win the Premiership this year, and be in chance of making it into the Champions League.

I was hoping to see Micheal Buble in concert, but no chance, as all the low price tickets had sold out and couldn’t get 4 tickets I needed, only platinum ones and sorry Micheal but I am not paying 200 quid for a ticket, I just can’t do it. Instead we are taking my inlaws (my husband parents) to see the musical Tina.

I would love to see the new Stan and Ollie film about Laurel and Hardy, one of my favourite double acts growing up as my dad always had their films on.

My husband and I have been talking and would love to go and see a lower league football match, it is always good to go and support the local teams.

Then most of all see Henry continue to grow and take him to lot more places, as he keeps asking about going to the seaside.

So what would you like to see in 2019? I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

My Favourite Christmas Films

Standard

My favourite films at Christmas is You’ve go mail with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks, I just love the innocence of the movie and how they finally realise that they already know each other.

Then Mary Poppins, the old version, not the new one that has just been released. I am sorry but you can’t beat the classics and it always brings me such excitement every time I see the film.

My son and I are loving Polar Express at the moment, and we’ve watched twice in two days. I just love the magic of it and my son because he loves trains, loves the film.

I can’t forget the old classic, A Christmas Carol, about Scrooge and is visited by the ghost of Christmas passed and present. I love the old black and white version.

Then there are films like The Snowman, it always brings me goosebumps each year and never grow sick of it.

Groundhog day with Bill Murray, absolutely hilarious and never grow sick of it, it still makes me laugh every time I watch it.

I am looking forward seeing some of these films this Christmas again and again.

So what are your favourite Christmas films? I would love to hear from you.

Merry Christmas Everyone.
