Birthdays and Christmas


It has been a busy month with it being my son’s birthday last weekend, aswell as my brothers and my mums.

Halloween has been and gone, along with fireworks night. I didn’t do any trickle treating, but a few little ones near where I live, did and didn’t go to any fireworks displays. I prefer to  be cozy at home and indoors.

For my son’s birthday we took him with some friends to Flipout in Wandsworth, which I would recommend as it is great way for all the children to have fun, for a couple of hours.

I have been loving a new song called Whisky Tango, by Jack Savoretti. Check out video below:

And have been listening to some great classics too, beginning with George Michael’s song, such as the song A Different Corner.

And Wham song called Everything she wants. Just a few of George Michael’s classics.

In Strictly Come Dancing I got to say I do miss Bryan Conley as he had the fun factor and now the competition is hotting up I think the rest of the celebs are taking it quite seriously. I nevertheless am still loving the show.

I have no interest in the X Factor whatsoever. I have been watching repeats of Only Fools And Horses and Friends on my Now TV box.

I have now posted some  pictures of my Halloween decoration on my Seasonal Clear up page on Carriesrealworld.com

I will post more of my home makeover as we now have new curtains and lights. We have started to decorate for Christmas too.

I am going to  post a few gift guides coming soon, to help with ideas of what to do for Christmas this year.

So have a good rest of the weekend everyone and please let me know what you have been up to too.

Many thanks for reading,

Getting ready for Halloween


Check out my new blog posts on my other sites:




I will be adding more as we go through the weeks. Tonight I am having a night off from parenting and so thought I would catch up on my weekly blog.

Half term was good as it meant I got to spend some time with my mum, and we took Henry to the local soft cafe where my son got to have a new haircut.

I have been taking Henry up to London most Mondays too, apart from this week as he did have a bit of nasty cold. I love taking him up to Hyde Park and St James park.

Now I am watching Only Fools and Horses on my Now TV box. I got to say this is a lovely brilliant little box and we can watch so much, so much cheaper than Sky TV.

Tonight I will be watching Strictly Come Dancing. It is been a great series so far, and still think Debbie McGee is the surprise for this year as I wasn’t expecting her to be as good as what she is.

I think Alexandra Burke is one of the favourites for this year.

I have also been watching The Apprentice, it seems that the candidates are getting worse, not better and I think my son Henry could come up with better ideas than these lot.

Tomorrow we are off to a shop called Dunelm, which is a really good low price store as we looking to give a home a make over. We have started to decorate for Halloween and got some bits from TK Maxx, which I will take photos of and put on my Seasonal Clear up page, once I clear some space on my phone.

So that’s it for this time round, I hope you have a good rest of the weekend and I will write more next week.
