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,

This time next year

Standard

Even though it was a rainy Friday today it didn’t stop me from going out; I had a lovely train and bus ride up to London, seeing some of London’s various attractions, whilst on my way to meet my friend for lunch.

I went up to Oxford Circus, it was busy but good to get out, rather than staying in wasting another day.

It is good news to hear that ABBA have got back together, I will be buying my first album in years when it comes out, and can’t wait to hear their new material.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Last Laugh In Las Vegas, I thought it was good to see old Cannon and Ball performing, they are my favourite double act of all time, along with Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello and of course Morecambe and Wise.

I also been watching This Time Next Year, which has inspired me to achieve my goals. It good to set goals I do it all the time and tick them off as I go.

Never allow the negative voice in your head tell you that it can’t happen because if you put your mind to it anything is possible.

So what do you fancy achieving this time next year? 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:

Today I am doing some chilling, whilst catching up on errands.

I have been watching a lot of Youtube, and as I am big fan of Celine Dion watching a documentary showing how she is preparing for her return to Las Vegas. It is about 4 or 5 years old, but I love watching as I find it inspiring.

So let me know what you have been up to, I would love to hear from you and who inspires you.

Many thanks for reading,

Some Tunes and organzation videos

Standard

It Saturday and not a day I often blog on, but as I was listening to some music and watched some Youtube videos I thought I would share some of the ones I love listening to and watching.

Today I was supposed to be seeing some friends I have known all my life that I don’t get to see that often now, as we all have our own families now, but due to Henry (my son) coming down with some horrid stomach bug, it didn’t happen.

Plus the weather being miserable doesn’t help.

The first thing I wanted to share was some Tunes I love listening to, and the tunes I felt like playing today was from the TSB advert, called Anne Dudley’s Humonics- Henry’s Theme.

Seems weird I know but I just love this tune, it lifts me out of a miserable mood as soon as I  here it on the TV.

The other tune was the instrumental version of the Titanic theme tune.

I just needed to here this today and it takes me to a peaceful place in my mind.

I love a good organisation video to get inspired by too, and I love watching ones from Do It On a Dime Channel. Here is her newest video to help clear up those small untided spaces.

What videos and music to you love to watch on rainy days on at the weekend, I would love to here from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Standard

Please see my new blog I wrote on my blog website:

https://sportsandfitnesspassion.wordpress.com

I shared a new workout video I used yesterday, and I am going to  have Youtube workout week. I am gonna do another workout today aswell.

Today my mum took us to see my brothers new place, and now I am home, catching up on errands.

My husband and I have been checking out some movies and I watched Skull Island.

Definitely would recommend, an excellent film.

I  am loving the new song by Paloma Faith song called “Guilty”.

It has been a good 2018, and begun filming again for my Youtube channel. A new Day in  life vlog coming again soon.

Sunday’s I use the day to catch up on bits and bobs, and watching some old films and a bit of football in the afternoon.

What do you do on a Sunday? I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Christmas is upon us

Standard

It is the 21st of December and not being smug, and not trying to cause alarm to others, but I am all set for the festive cheer.

Christmas prezzies all bought and taken over to nannies and all there is left is to drive over on Christmas Day, to stay at my mums for Christmas.

I have been enjoying watching a film of an evening whilst snuggled up in bed.

Watched an old classic yesterday “Romance In The Stone” Starring Micheal Douglas.

Not sure what is on tonight but I hope there is a classic film on.

I enjoyed the strictly come dancing final, and was surprised by the winner, but definitely deserved.

I was a bit miffed with the final of the apprentice. It should have been one winner not both and was a cop out in my book.

I am loving the new song by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds- Holy Mountain.

Great song, my song for this part of the year and one I have not stopped playing.

What is your song for this part of the year that you have heard? I would love to hear from you.

Looking forward to when the new series of The Voice, Ollie Muirs will be joining the coaching panel this year. Will be interesting.

Then we will be heading into a new year, so I will post again during the week to summon up 2017 before reflecting on the new year ahead.

So until then have a good Christmas and I will post as we head into the new year.

Many thanks for reading,
