Celebrating the Easter Holidays

Standard

It was a good two weeks off, I was working through part of it, but still got to enjoy the holiday.

My son got to do lots of adventurous things, like riding on a bus and train which he loves. He was taken on a Thomas The Tank Engine Train, and didn’t want to get off.

We took him to a funfair in Wimbledon Park, which is on a lot during the Easter Holidays, only once a year, but my son and my nieces loved it.

Then my mum put together an Easter Egg hunt, for my son and my nieces and put around the gardens in the school where my mum lives.

Putting together an Easter Egg hunt is fun to do, and you can make your own, check out my blog I wrote on The Parenting Adventures tips and tricks, called

What to do with your kids during the Easter Holidays

All you need is to hide a load of eggs and my mum used Easter Chocolate coins aswell, write some clues or for smaller children, get them to see how many eggs they can find, and a different section, put their names by them so they know which ones to look for.

So what did you do over the Easter holidays I would love to hear from you?

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?

A trip to Kingston

Standard

Yesterday we (my mum and I) took my son Henry to Kingston Upon Thames, it isn’t that far from where we live and can easily take a overground train there or get there by various buses, check out the TFL website for information.

It was nice weather, not too hot or cold, and we looked around some shops, firstly in John Lewis as we needed to get some more bits of uniform for my cousins, and also to have look around and then had a bit of lunch in Pret a Manger

Then we took a boat ride from Kingston to Hampton court and back. It was only £9 return and was a lovely trip along the River Thames.

Such a lovely day out and you can even get the boat to Richmond to Hampton Court and back.

What lovely days out have you had? I would love to find out.

Visit up to the Southbank

Standard

It has been a really good bank holiday, so much so we decided to go the Oak Furniture in New Malden today and purchased a new sofa, for our Living Room.

I will post about this and show a photo on my Seasonal Clean up page, on http://www.carriesrealworld.com Once it all arrives.

On Saturday we took a trip to one of our favourite places, the Southbank in London, and they had a food festival going on, as there were a lot of food market stalls, going along the Southbank as you reach the Millennium bridge.

It was good weather too, not too hot or cold, and we walked up to Southwark Bridge then made our way back to Waterloo Station.

We popped in the festival hall on the way there and back aswell, because this is great place if you need the toilet and want to grab a drink or two.

I never get tired of going to the Southbank, but it does get very busy up there now, especially because this is the last bank holiday for the UK, until Christmas.

What did you do this bank holiday?

I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Went to the Cinema

Standard

Whilst it was boiling hot outside, my other half and I decided to take a trip to Wimbledon, have a few drinks whilst watching the football, France Vs Argentina, and then take a trip to the cinema.

Whilst watching the football in the Prince Of Wales Pub, I had a glass of Old Moat Cider, Cherry Berry. Very nice and refreshing drink that I had to take a photo. I would definitely have that again.

We decided to see Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. The tickets were ¬£19.25 each but we managed as it wasn’t busy to upgrade for free and sit in the Premier Seats. We went to the Odeon Cinema in Wimbledon.

The film was good packed with action and surprise, and it wasn’t too unrealistic.

You felt sorry, well I did, for the Dinosaurs, you wanted them to be saved, apart from the big one, which you’ll see if you go to see the film. I liked that there wasn’t too much romance, and it was about saving the Dinosaurs from being killed. I wouldn’t definitely see it again when it comes out on DVD.

So what have you been up to ? What films have you seen ? I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,
