Went to see Mama Mia

Standard

It is Sunday early evening and it is still boiling hot, I am melting as I sit in my bedroom to write this post. It is so hot that my son has striped himself naked.

I wish I could get away with that, knowing all our windows are open so my neighbours would get an eye full if I did strip off. I not long have had a cold shower and I am melting again already.

No I am not complaining it is good to have such a good summer but I am typical English gal and not used to this heat.

I have had a good weekend though I went to see Mama Mia 2. I liked it, I thought it was much better than the first one, which now I have to see again, as to be honest I haven’t really sat down to really watch it, but seen snippets, so think I am gonna have a Mama Mia catch up when the second one comes out on DVD, so I can watch both back to back.

He is a snippet from the second film

Earlier today I was playing some of ABBA’s hits whilst my husband was painting our house.

What did you get up to at the weekend? I would love to hear.

Thanks for reading,

Tips for your wedding day.

Standard

It is Sunday, not a day I usually post on, but as I have a free Sunday afternoon to myself for a change I thought I would take advantage. I have already fitted in some exercise, a coffee and some retail therapy, now it is time to write.

I came across this article on 5 Tips to Get Ready Faster In the Morning (see link below):

http://frame.bloglovin.com/?post=6308359871&blog=12361135&frame_type=none

I watched part of the Eurovision song contest lastnight and was I felt already predicted who would win. Let’s face it even if Bucks Fizz returned and took their clothes off we wouldn’t win now, but I still try and be hopeful.

I am looking forward to the Royal Wedding next week and also the FA Cup Final which is my favourite football competition and Chelsea are in the final so fingers cross we win.

I thought I would share some of my top tips for those who maybe also getting married next weekend.

Tip 1# Always give yourself time for perspective, it will help with the stress, and practice breathing.

Tip 2# Remember it is your day so don’t forget to put your foot down, so other people don’t try and dictate what you should do.

Tip 3# Get bits ready the night before, like put your dress hanging up ready with wedding veil, if you are wearing one, with shoes and underwear.

Tip 4# Have time to yourself, kind of related to the first tip, but it is important to have time just you and have that glass of wine the night before, it will help the nerves.

Tip 5# Get others to help you as much as possible, as it can be stressful planning a wedding by yourself, it is good to have people who can make the tea whilst you get your make up on, or does your make up for you, as long as they know what they are doing.

So if you are getting married this week to, then congratulations and enjoy the day as much a possible as trust me before you know it, it will be the honeymoon and you’ll start to forget the big day. So enjoy it as much as possible.

Many thanks for reading,

Sunny days

Standard

It has been a good Friday so far, my husband is off work so we used the time to visit Sutton, a town in London, to do a few errands. We had to get a costume for our son Henry as he needs it for a birthday party he is going to, and to buy some birthday presents and cards.

I did pop in the Primark but I tend to avoid it during the day because how busy it gets, so as soon I popped in I walked out again, but going to pop back another day, as I saw they were doing T-Shirts for £2.50.

I have been watching a lot of hack videos, check out my web page, Seasonal Clean ups where I have posted some cleaning hack videos I found on Youtube, and posted some mum hacks I discovered on Youtube on my website:

https://theparentingadventurestipsandtricks.wordpress.com 

I tend to watch a lot of Youtube now rather than TV, but I am still watching the show called This Time Next Year with Davina McCall, as I do find those kind of programs inspiring.

It supposed to be a nice weather bank holiday this weekend, so I going to make the most of that.

What are you up to this weekend? I love to hear.

Anyway have a good bank holiday and will post again next week.

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,

Comedy Double Acts

Standard

It is Friday, end of another week. I filmed my Easter weekend for my Youtube Channel but this didn’t go to plan as couldn’t create my footage to make it into a Youtube Video, so posted the videos on my Google plus account.

I was just trying again because I have some videos on my camera to upload, but this wouldn’t work either, so not able to upload any videos as of yet, but I am going to keep on trying.

I had a good Easter, my mum created an Easter Egg hunt which I filmed, and Monday went for a walk in town and a drive.

I have been watching my favourite comedy double act Cannon and Ball, check the one video I watched, which was them at their best.

I love comedy acts, and speaking of double acts I thought Dec did well on his own last week on Ant and Dec’s Saturday night Take Away.

I would like to pay tribute to one of my favourite Dart Players Eric Bristow, who Sadly has passed away, but will never be forgotten.

Check out my new blog on my website:

What have you been watching and how was your Easter I would love to hear from you.

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:

https://sportsandfitnesspassion.wordpress.com 

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,
