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,

Visit up to the Southbank

Standard

It has been a really good bank holiday, so much so we decided to go the Oak Furniture in New Malden today and purchased a new sofa, for our Living Room.

I will post about this and show a photo on my Seasonal Clean up page, on http://www.carriesrealworld.com Once it all arrives.

On Saturday we took a trip to one of our favourite places, the Southbank in London, and they had a food festival going on, as there were a lot of food market stalls, going along the Southbank as you reach the Millennium bridge.

It was good weather too, not too hot or cold, and we walked up to Southwark Bridge then made our way back to Waterloo Station.

We popped in the festival hall on the way there and back aswell, because this is great place if you need the toilet and want to grab a drink or two.

I never get tired of going to the Southbank, but it does get very busy up there now, especially because this is the last bank holiday for the UK, until Christmas.

What did you do this bank holiday?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Relieved about Christmas

Standard

It is two days since Christmas and I can already feel the relief that this year is all done. Well almost. Next it will be new years.

I try to avoid the shops this time of year because how busy it all gets, just too many people, and a lot of rushing around.

I just want to take it easy post Christmas and make the most of the time I have with my family and husband.

I also like to have like I do from Autumn to spring is have a clear out. Today it was clearing out my inbox to one of my google email accounts. It just gets so out of hand.

It feels good to have a clear out and I have decided, my first new years resolution, to go through my emails weekly and have regular clear out so it doesn’t pile up. I will be making more resolutions as I get nearer to the new year.

So how do you feel after Christmas? Are you like me and relieved?

Do you make new years resolutions? what are they?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Meal Review and my day out in LONDON

Standard

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 http://www.carriesrealworld.com

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

Many thanks for reading,

Ground Force day

Standard

Hi today I did some gardening no clue really what I was doing but with help from my mum always my saviour, I managed to plant 4 flowering plants with one in water ready to put in my lawn for tomorrow.

Some flowers I had planted

I admit I am not gonna start acting as if I could give Alan Titmarsh a run for his money, but it’s a start.

Anyone who wants to learn how to garden has got to start somewhere​ so see how they grow, must remember to water some more tonight and tomorrow as we are on holiday.

I am so in need of seeing some sea and be near a beach. No more rain not in Bournemouth anyway so I can actually walk along the coast and have proper fish ‘n’ chips.

I have packed and trying to follow advise from hubby pack light, so I have. Three summer dresses, leggins, skirt and vest top. Sports bra, workout top, bottoms and one pair of shoes and flip flops and gonna wear my trainers there with one spare pair of socks. 

So it’s just my hand luggage to sort as well do hubbies cards as it’s his birthday on Thursday.

I will post during or after holiday to share my so needed vacation. I hope if you are away you enjoy yours too.
