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 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.

Strictly Come Dancing Final

Standard

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the Strictly Come Dancing final last night, but sad that it had to end. I predicted ages ago in a former blog post that Kevin and Stacey would win. They did have a fantastic partnership and I thought that Craig’s (one of the strictly judges) scores were pretty harsh, I loved their freestyle routine, and their Paso Doble, I thought it deserved a definite ten.

Image result for Strictly come dancing It was great to see Micheal Buble performing, check it out below if you didn’t get to see it.

Least we still have the Christmas special to look forward to. It has been a great series and I thought it was quite open at the beginning, meaning that it was anyone’s competition. There were some real strong contenders.

So what do we have to look forward to on a Saturday night now?

Well you have The Voice on ITV starting again soon and then Dancing on Ice.

Strictly is such a great show that every year I become more of a fan than before.

So what did you think of this series of Strictly? I would love to hear your views.

Many thanks for reading,

End of another week

Standard

Its Friday Yippy. No more school run for two days, hooray. Not that I don’t like the school run it is such a mission, as Henry my son loves to watch people going passed, the pond, the trees for squirrels and the buses going by.

Today is going to be an easy day for me, as got most of what I needed to do during the week. At the moment I am listening on Google Music APP Guetta and Sia Flames.

Not sure if I am that impressed with Google Music App as you have to pay for it, and should be able to listen to podcasts as as music, but it won’t let me andI got it because I wanted to listen to podcasts not just music.

Another App I am using is Podcasts which is available from Play Store and it is completely free to use and I am loving it.

I love listening to Tony Robbins and been watching a lot of videos on Youtube by Erin May Henry, Gillian Perkins, Sugar Mamma, Alexa Aka MissTrenchCoat and Project Life Mastery. I would recommend them to watch as they really help motivate me and inspire me.

This weekend it is my brothers birthday and my sons, so will be celebrating those and have small gathering of family.

So who inspires you on Podcasts, Youtube and what you up to this weekend I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,
