A Great Weekend

Standard

Last weekend was brilliant celebrating my friends 40th birthday last Saturday.

We had a little hiccup, where by our hotel accommodation was moved, and we ended up staying instead of So Arch Hotel, stayed at the So Kings Cross hotel.

Would not recommend the room was very basic, at a cost of £107.40 and the breakfast the next morning was great either.

We decided to have a bite to eat and found a Italian Restaurant, which I could imagine being in Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares. There appeared to be a lot of arguing among the staff, and not a lot of serving going on.

Then we went for a coffee in Costa near the train station, which was a much better atmosphere, and good service.

We then sat outside of a bit as it was a nice afternoon, and sat and watched these people doing the Salsa in the middle of the square there.

We went onto the N19 in Archway, to celebrate my friends birthday, and got there for 6pm and watched the rest of the football. Then they had a band on, which were good and very entertaining.

The next day I was feeling a bit rough, but was well worth it as it was a great weekend.

How I Plan My Life

Standard

Planning my life is a juggling act, the first thing I always do is update my google calendar and then put any appointments in my Filofax’s which I do have two of, I use these as my everyday planner.

Along with my yearly hanging calendar I have in my living room, and then once I have checked these I then will update my work planner.

Please check out my website:

https://www.carriesrealworld.com/filofax-and-planners

I also make sure I have a notebook near by as I tend to  use these as to do a whole brain dump of everything I need to get done.

I couldn’t go a week without planning my life, and setting time for my books and blogs as well setting time out to spend with my son.

How do you plan your life I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

TV and Music I am loving at the moment

Standard

The things I am loving at the moment are, I love watching the 100K drop with Davina McCall. I wouldn’t go on it myself, but I find it nerve wracking watching other people try it out. I think it so depends on what questions you get, as they could be anything.

I loved the series Cleaning Up with Sheridan Smith, I love her new music to.

This is the one I am loving at the moment, called Northern Soul.

The other music I have been listening to is Queen, Who Wants To Live Forever, this has a strong connection with me, as it reminds me of someone I used to work with who sadly died all of a sudden. It was so unexpected that whenever I listen to the song it takes me back to that time, and keeps Nigel (was his name) memory alive for me.

If you liked the film Bohemian Rhapsody, then you will like this video, which shows the making of the film.

So what music and TV have you been loving at the moment?

Many thanks for reading,

Celebrating Valentines Day

Standard

Happy Valentines Day to everyone. Me and my hubby don’t really celebrate the day as such, but I will cook dinner tonight as per normal.

I have never really celebrated Valentines Day I did make the effort when it was the year of mine and my husband 10 year anniversary, but apart from that I do treat it as a normal day.

We have even forgotten our actual wedding anniversary a few times, my husband is better at remembering those types of dates than me. I just about manage Christmas and this is the only holiday I really celebrate.

I used to be a complete humbug when it came to Valentines Day, as I was never a girl who had a lot of boyfriends and didn’t care for it much.

Me and my husband celebrate our relationship through out the year and so there is no real significance to celebrate Valentines Day as such, not knocking those who do it just not something I feel I need to celebrate.

What about you, do you celebrate valentines day?

What do you do to celebrate?

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,

Why I love to read

Standard

Reading for me is like watching and film but in words. Books can take you to another world or place, or teach you about life.

It is the best tools you can have, and I love to share the books I read, check out my Book Review page on Carriesrealworld.com

Books can inspire me and help to grow myself as a person.

I wouldn’t go anywhere without having a good book to read.

The books I love are self help books, crime novels and chick flicks.

These are are my go to favourites and love being in my own world whilst reading them, and there will be more book reviews to come.

Reading helps with my writing and teaches me about different words and meanings, and as with everything I am still learning and with books I can have endless days reading.

Do you love to read?

What are your favourite types of books?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

My Morning Routine

Standard

A typical routine for me, is dependent on if I am working at a nursery or not. I work part time as a Nursery Practitioner. A routine for me is essential and helps keep me structured.

I am a early bird always have been, not through choice but through my automatic body clock. I usually wake up between 4:3O to 5:30am and get up between 6-6:30am.

Getting up early is important to me as it does help me get my arse in gear and get on with my day. I will often now do some work on my blogs in the morning before my son gets up. Not always a success but it does help to get on with something in the morning it just gives me that boost of energy.

When my husband is off which is not always the case, I do take advantage and do some early morning cleaning, or we go out to the shops early, and helps spread out the rest of the day.

So what is your morning routine? Do you get up early too?

Many thanks for reading,
