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:

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,

Bake Off

Standard

I wrote a new blog on my website:

https://theparentingadventurestipsandtricks.wordpress.com

I share a Youtube video I watched last night about Sextuplets who I remember watching as a child, and now they are in their 30’s. I just found it inspiring, and made me realise how lucky I am, as those parents of the Sextuplets must not have slept at all.

I have also been watching the programs about Lady Diana, as it is 20 years since she died, and I remember that week so well, it was pure sadness. Even on the radio they kept playing ballads throughout that week up until the funeral and I remember just crying my heart out.

It to me was so cruel, because she still had so much more to give and her life was changing for the better, but it came to a stop. It made me realise how fragile life can be and could come to an end at any minute, you just never know.

I think she would be so proud of her two boys, because of the men they have become and her legacy will continue on through her two boys.

As well as that I have taken up swimming and went this morning, even went to use the Spa but it was closed, but nice to do a bit of swimming, so refreshing and it is amazing how you can ache so much afterwards.

I watched The Great British Bake Off last night on Channel 4. I am so glad they have kept to the same format, even though they have new presenters and a new judge, I really enjoyed it. A bit off putting with the adverts, but apart from that was good the first one, and what I like is that they hadn’t changed too much about it.

Then there is Strictly Come Dancing. I can not wait for it to begin and already looking forward to seeing Bryan Conley and Debbie McGee, I just wonder who they will be paired up with and how the new judge Shirley Ballas, whom has taken over from Len Goodman, will be like.

So lots more to come. I would love to know what you are looking forward to on TV, and if there is any programs you can recommend to me to watch. Are you too a strictly come dancing fan, I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,
