Visiting Wisley Gardens

Standard

Last Sunday as it was coming up to my nieces 11th birthday, we celebrated by having a picnic in Wisley Gardens.

Such a beautiful place to visit with it lovely flowers, plants, ponds and a cafe where you can have a drink and enjoy the scenery.

There is even a play area for children to play, but my nieces wanted to climb the trees there.

Inside this large green house is some lovely plants, flowers and a waterfall which you can walk under, and apparently you can get married in there too.

It costs about £14 to £15 for adults, families it is about £40 and about £12 for a large group of 10 or more per person, but it is well worth the visit.

Getting things done

Standard

Thank the world that it is finally the weekend, and I have so much to do this week arising, because my son is starting school. YIKES!

I have been watching a lot of videos by Jordan Page, on how she schedules her weeks and days, by following a Block Schedule system, check this out below:

They are really good to watch, and helps get you organised.

Here another about how she budgets and got out of being in debt.

Here is one of her videos about how she does her “To do’s”, and how to get things done.

I find her videos so inspiring, and she makes it easy and quick to do.

She even plans her years in advanced, see video below:

She is truly inspiring, and now I am going to sort my own life out too.

Many thanks for reading,

A trip to Kingston

Standard

Yesterday we (my mum and I) took my son Henry to Kingston Upon Thames, it isn’t that far from where we live and can easily take a overground train there or get there by various buses, check out the TFL website for information.

It was nice weather, not too hot or cold, and we looked around some shops, firstly in John Lewis as we needed to get some more bits of uniform for my cousins, and also to have look around and then had a bit of lunch in Pret a Manger

Then we took a boat ride from Kingston to Hampton court and back. It was only £9 return and was a lovely trip along the River Thames.

Such a lovely day out and you can even get the boat to Richmond to Hampton Court and back.

What lovely days out have you had? I would love to find out.

Is Football Coming Home?

Standard

Tonight’s the night, Semi Final time. Check out my blog post on wrote on my blog site https://sportsandfitnesspassion.wordpress.com 

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?

Many thanks for reading,

Went to the Cinema

Standard

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.

Many thanks for reading,

The Simple Life

Standard

End of another week, and it is unlucky for some Friday the 13th April 2018. I have decided that I really want a more simpler life, minimal, as I look around my home and it is still full of stuff I don’t really use and know it will do good being some where else.

I will update my seasonal clear up page on Carriesrealworld.com

As we go through some changes, it is time to change my home around and go for the minimal approach. I have a room next door full of craft staff, but am I really going to get around to using my craft stuff? Probably not, so might donate these to my mum for my nieces to play with.

As I clear up I have been enjoying the new song by George Ezra called Paradise. Check out below:

Yesterday we (my mum and I) took my son and my niece to Eddie Catz, in Wimbledon. It has a big softplay area, for smaller to bigger children, a cafe, disco room and basketball court.

I would recommend for mums these centres as they are great for all kids of all ages. Cost about £17 for all of us, but was a good morning out.

Now I am going to sort my washing out and chill until I have to pick up my son from nursery. It is a gloomy day but going to enjoy my bit of walking I do on a Friday enjoying the outdoors. I will blog again next week.

Check my new haul video below:
