Meal for a Tenner Review

Standard

I posted a blog about a Meal for a tenner and so here is my review on it.

We tried the ones at Tesco and was very impressed, but not with Marks and Spencers which we tried last Saturday.

It was lovely meal, but both my husband and I didn’t go much on the Rose wine we had, and I think that you get more for your money with the Tescos meal for a tenner, so prefer the Tescos one compared to the Mark and Spencers meal deal.

I am not sure if we will do the meal for a tenner this Saturday, as we are taking a trip on the Watercress line Train ride as treat for our son, as he loves trains and so I will post about our trip next week.

I am also going to take a trip to either the Christmas markets along the South Bank or to Winter Wonderland so when I do I will be writing a post.

On Youtube this week I came across this video by Sugarmamma.tv about Quick Cash Saving habits.

I have been watching Strictly still and I got to say I think Kevin and Stacey could possibly win it, I loved their dance last week doing the Paso, and feel they do have a real strong partnership.

So I hope you all have a good weekend and check out the Tescos meal deal, no I am not sponsored I just think it is great.

Many thanks for reading,

I love Alfonzo

Standard

If you don’t know who Alfonzo is, he is the guy who played Carlton on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. He did the American version of Strictly Come Dancing, called Dancing with the Stars and won.

Here he is dancing below:

I thought this was brilliant dancing and the fact he was making fun on himself, made it even more brilliant.

On Strictly Come Dancing last week, he bought a certain level of excitement being a guest judge this year.

Don’t get me wrong I do like Bruno, but he just was so brilliant in his comments, that I wish he could be guest judge each year, and I would love for him to be on more UK TV.

Yesterday, I spent some time in Kingston as we have my husbands parents down, and it was a good day out. There are several buses and trains you can get there, and is a nice town. There was a big British Heart Foundation store, which I couldn’t resist, and bought a couple of books.

Then we went into this little pub, which I can not remember the name of, but is opposite the Starbucks on the high street. Then we went and got the bus back before the traffic got any busier.

We then went back to our local town and had a few drinks there, a bite to eat and then home.

I love a good day out, and looking forward to some Christmas Markets already.

Who is your favourite person on TV?

Where do you like to go and visit on regular basis?

I have dreams about being on Strictly Come Dancing

Standard

Being a massive fan of Strictly Come Dancing, which is the UK version of Dancing with the stars, I been having dreams that I am on the show. No this isn’t a ploy to actually be on the show, as I have to be real to myself, that it is never going to happen, but I do dream about being on it.

I was lucky enough in 2016 to actually be there to see the show live, for the 2016 Semi Final, as my friend happen to be working on the show. It was a dream come true, I felt like I had jumped into the TV screen, and I got to have a photo with Ore Oduba, who was lovely by the way, true professional.

I used to do Ballroom, Latin and Disco dancing as a child all the way up until I was 16 and then started working and couldn’t fit it in anymore, but I loved it. I even won the cup for having the higher marks in my final exam, and I really miss it.

It was a lovely little dancing school, and I still wonder if it is still going on now.

If you are thinking of taking up Ballroom and Latin dancing then go for it, it is really a great way to keep in shape.

My favourite performance so far is from last Saturday, the Paso Doble, danced by Seann Walsh and Katya Jones.

Plus the Jive by Kevin Clifton and Stacey Dooley.

So far these have been my favourite, but they all were good I thought on Saturday it still is anyone still one show competition.

Who did you like on Strictly?

Have you done this type of dancing?

I would love to hear from you.

End of another week

Standard

It is Friday once again, and I can’t begin to tell you how relieved I am.

I started my new job this week, as a Nursery Practitioner and it is good to have a fresh start of something new to get my teeth into, but been tiring at the same time.

I am looking forward to tomorrow evening as I am out having a meal with my family and during the day, my husband and I are off to see a show “Bat out of Hell”, to celebrate my birthday.

I am now officially a 40 year old woman. How does that make me feel?

That I feel I have a lot more to explore.

Also Strictly Come Dancing continues tomorrow and I will be watching on catch up, on the BBC iPlayer. I’ve been having dreams about being on the show, I truly love it, my favourite on TV.

So far I have been impressed with the performances, and think a lot of them could be possible winners. I think it such a great show especially for Saturday night TV.

It is also a relief not to do the school run for two days, as boy I never realised how stressful it could be, as getting my son dressed isn’t always stress free, so time of the school run I am a anxious wreck.

I have written about in my other blog website, about being continuously anxious:

Do you get stressed when it comes to school run?

What you up to this weekend?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Strictly is back…yay…

Standard

Yes it is back and I can not wait. I don’t know all of the celebrities this year so not sure who will stand out and who will not, but still excited to see it back.

It really is my favourite show. I am a bit sad that Brendan Cole not in it this year, but looking forward to seeing the new dancers take centre stage.

I have been watching a lot of Youtube and I love watching Routine videos, and recently watched this one by Doitonadime, check it out below:

I have also been watching a lot of videos by The Rich Life.

And the other videos I like to watch at the moment and ones by Tracy Hensel, she does a lot of videos about budgeting and scheduling. It’s always good to get inspiration.

So what do you love to watch on TV and on Youtube I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Christmas Music

Standard

It is 12 days until Christmas and I thought I was done until I realized I had some chocolate father Christmases that I was supposed to give out last year but didn’t so will be giving these to some special people this Christmas. It is OK they are still in date but I only have 4 so I need an another one.

Apart from that I am all done. I have all my decor done, and all gifts appart from one wrapped in tissue paper and gift bags. So the next stage is to deliver them all.

I have been posting some new blogs on my website:

As I have updated my fitness diary page, about my mojo back for training.

Posted a new blog on my website:

https://theparentingadventurestipsandtricks.wordpress.com

Talking about how to keep those nasty bugs and bay.

I have been listening to some Christmas music and watched this documentary on Youtube about the making of Band Aid check it out on Youtube.

I always think about the Band Aid song and play it at this time of year, to remember how music tried to make a different to those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

It is amazing music can bring so many people together and what good it does and what it did was amazing.

I have been watching Strictly Come Dancing, and predicted that it would be Molly and AJ that would be out, as Debbie McGee and Alexandra Burke were for me the best two of the night.

I am off out now but I will blog what I have been up to next week, until then many thanks for reading,

I love a Christmas Market

Standard

It is Wednesday already I had a lovely weekend in Southampton seeing my husband’s family, they had a Christmas Market on which I love and had a drink in the German Bar they had there.

This morning I woke up feeling groggy no idea why, but my son has this weekend not been well, had a bit of a tummy bug so perhaps I caught part of it. I am okay now, I have posted some pictures of my husband’s and I Christmas Home Decor along with our new lights we have purchases. Check out my Seasonal clean up page.

I have also written a book review of the book I read called The Secret of a Slummy Mummy, which I really enjoyed. Click above to read.

I watched Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday night still and what a show it was, the theme was musicals, thoroughly enjoyable I thought Debbie McGee was outstanding, I hope I can move as good as she can, I think could be a finalist.

I have been watching a lot of football aswell the past few days as my husband’s team Southampton, played on Sunday and my son is obsessed with Sky Sports. Thank the lord we have the NOW TV box.

I am so looking forward to Christmas this year and I have completed all my shopping, yay. So super happy, and already have started playing Christmas music. So I hope you have had a good week so far until next week.

Many thanks for reading,
