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:

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,

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,

Celebrating Boxing Day

Standard

It was a lovely day, my husband and I got to spend some time together just the two of us, and went for a coffee and looked in some shops. I bought a new diary to go with my collection this year from TK Maxx it was £9.99.

I will do a video sharing my planners soon on my Filofax and Planner page on Carrierealworld.com 

My son got to spend some time with his cousins and received as a gift from my mum and step dad, a new bike.

My son and his cousin Gracie got to play on their new bikes, as she received one too, in the playground of my step dad’s school.

We had dinner, of roast beef, baked potatoes, coleslaw and Yorkshire puddings and then dessert the children had ice cream, whilst the adults had cheese cake.

We got to open some more gifts, at which I received a new watch and a bracelet, which I will post some pictures of, and my husband was given a new fleece type jumper.

It has been a good Christmas and then we are off to Southampton for the new years, so I will post about this soon.

Many thanks for reading,
