The Rock

Standard

Since last week I have been enjoying the Athletic World Championships, being hosted in Londons Olympic stadium. Mo Farah is running again tonight, which I will try my hardest to stay awake for.

Its been really good to watch, seeing all the events like the Javolin, hurdles and long jump. We brits have been unlucky, Laura Muir just missed out on a medal, and I know our girl Hitchon who took part in the hammer, just missed out too, she threw brilliantly but couldn’t quite make it to a winning throw though.

I do love my evenings in bed, watching the TV, my favourite thing at the moment. I saw this brilliant video earlier today of The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) singing tune to a new disney film Moana, here is a clip below:

 

I really want to see this film now, The Rock does the main charactors voice.

My husband and I had a last minute weekend away in Southampton, to celebrate his brother’s birthday, who sadly no longer with us, with his mum and dad.

We are going back to Southampton just my husband and I in a few weeks time, this time for another weekend away as it will be Marks Anniversary of when he sadly lost his life, and see my husband’s family again.

Anyway that is it for this week, I hope to those on holiday now have a great one and I will post another blog as of next week.

Many thanks for reading,

My holiday Bournemouth 2017

Standard

Here is where we stayed, The Carrington House Hotel cost about £308.50 for 3 nights that included breakfast.

Was a nice hotel we had a good size room which could fit up to 6 people. The dinner was 12.50 per person, Henry our son was free.

The dinner was Buffet style of three courses. I liked the first two courses but cheesecake wasn’t nice.

The Boscombe Beach was gorgeous and we were very lucky with the weather. We walked down along the beach, having a dip in the sea as we walked.

I was envious of those sitting outside a beach hut. I so wanted one of my own, as the people whom had one, looked so relaxed and room to put drinks in and person was even cooking inside one of the sheds.

My hubby and son on the beach. It took my breath away with how lovely the beach was.

On our last day we walked the other way towards Bournemouth Pier and sat on Boscombe Pier on our way back, pure Heaven.

This was taken on our first day on our first walk along the amazing stretch of beach.

On the train back I felt sad that our short break away was coming to an end.

Another photo of the wonderful beach could not stop taking photos was so photo genic.

Above is our train ride to Poole where we meet my husband’s parents and had wonderful fish ‘n’ chips.

Below is of Poole Harbour where we had a bit of retail therapy. My husband bought a new pair of trainers and I bought Henry two pairs of shoes and myself all £3.99 each. I love a bargain.

Was a fabulous break away and would so recommend it if you are looking to go on a short break away. We will definitely return too.

Sad world 

Standard

Once again we think everything is ok and yet another terror attack takes place and in an area, Borough Market, London Bridge, which my hubby and I know so well. 

This terrible incident does not deter me to not go there again. What do these people who create such terror have on me?

NOTHING!

My heart goes out to those who were injured and killed. It isn’t just physical injuries that can effect those whom were there but mentally too. 

We now must all pull together and say NO MORE TERROR!

Many thanks for reading,

Holiday Fever

Standard

Yes I have holiday fever at the moment, even though the weather is some what skeptical. I have been searching holidays in the last week as I am gasping to go on another cruise some where.

If you think cruises are for those who are passed their expiry date, then you are wrong. Cruises are brilliant for everyone, and I personally love them, that every time I think of Southampton, I think of the Quays.

I am soon to be off to Bournemouth with my son and my husband and I can already smell the sandy beach. I have decided I am going to be clearing out my suitcase that is stuck in my son’s wardrobe at the moment, which is loaded with Henry’s old baby clothes, and get started on the packing for our little break away.

I have even decided already, as my husband has already warned me not to take a lot,  on what I am going to be packing away with me. No it does not include the kitchen sink.

 

 

We aren’t driving there, but have already booked our train tickets. I would always suggest if you are booking and use the trains a lot to invest in a railcard, we haven’t this time, as we tend to drive most places, and I can always use my Oyster card now, as I tend to most of the time travel by train to London.

Railcards are only £30 or so and saved me a lot of money when I used to travel to London to the south coast a lot. Check out link below:

If you want to save more money, when eating out on holiday, why not invest in getting a Gourmet Society card, Kidspass or a Tastecard.

There are so many ways you can save money, you just have to shop around.

So Bournemouth here we come, so looking forward to the Sandy beach.
