Places to go and people to see

Standard

I thoroughly enjoyed the Athletic World Championships this year that ended last Sunday, and so happy that Great Britain and Northern Ireland did well in the relays. The Gold medal our boys won in the 4×100 relay was so unexpected that it made the championships even more amazing, as unfortunately Moy Farah didn’t get another gold in the 10,000 metres.

My son now keeps mimicking the runners, and runs across our living room floor, so you never know I could end up having a 100 metres sprinter in our home, who knows!

Now we have the football season again, but not as excited this year, as it is so much about the money that it has lost its spark in my opinion, I know there will be people reading this shouting NO, but sorry it has.

It has been a good week took my son Swimming for the first time and he was so confident that he was like a little WATER BABY, and didn’t freak out once, as I had originally suspected. We took him to Richmond Pools, which had a childrens heated pool. Thank you mum, as now I want to go swimming again, it is such good exercise and fun, that you can do it as a whole family activity.

Here’s a picture of my niece, Gracie and Henry eating some lunch together, which I took yesterday in Wimbledon Park, which has a little water fountain which children can play in, but Henry and Gracie were not interested in that so they played on the swings.

Wimbledon Park is a lovely park and not far away from the Wimbledon Tennis. It has about 3 playgrounds with different climbing frames and swings, and a cafe where you can have something to eat, and a lake where you can feed the ducks and the swans.

If you are near the Wimbledon area, do check out Wimbledon Park, great location for kids and there are gates to each playground so kids can’t easily get out. They even had some bouncy castles there yesterday too, and Henry and Gracie enjoyed it so much they both fell asleep in the car on the way back home.

Great place to go for a picnic this time of year. This weekend coming my hubby and I are going to have some time out just the two of us, and going to Southampton for the weekend to celebrate his brother’s, who passed away last year life, and spend sometime with his family.

So I will report back next week, until then many thanks for reading,

The Rock

Standard

Since last week I have been enjoying the Athletic World Championships, being hosted in Londons Olympic stadium. Mo Farah is running again tonight, which I will try my hardest to stay awake for.

Its been really good to watch, seeing all the events like the Javolin, hurdles and long jump. We brits have been unlucky, Laura Muir just missed out on a medal, and I know our girl Hitchon who took part in the hammer, just missed out too, she threw brilliantly but couldn’t quite make it to a winning throw though.

I do love my evenings in bed, watching the TV, my favourite thing at the moment. I saw this brilliant video earlier today of The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) singing tune to a new disney film Moana, here is a clip below:

 

I really want to see this film now, The Rock does the main charactors voice.

My husband and I had a last minute weekend away in Southampton, to celebrate his brother’s birthday, who sadly no longer with us, with his mum and dad.

We are going back to Southampton just my husband and I in a few weeks time, this time for another weekend away as it will be Marks Anniversary of when he sadly lost his life, and see my husband’s family again.

Anyway that is it for this week, I hope to those on holiday now have a great one and I will post another blog as of next week.

Many thanks for reading,

My holiday Bournemouth 2017

Standard

Here is where we stayed, The Carrington House Hotel cost about £308.50 for 3 nights that included breakfast.

Was a nice hotel we had a good size room which could fit up to 6 people. The dinner was 12.50 per person, Henry our son was free.

The dinner was Buffet style of three courses. I liked the first two courses but cheesecake wasn’t nice.

The Boscombe Beach was gorgeous and we were very lucky with the weather. We walked down along the beach, having a dip in the sea as we walked.

I was envious of those sitting outside a beach hut. I so wanted one of my own, as the people whom had one, looked so relaxed and room to put drinks in and person was even cooking inside one of the sheds.

My hubby and son on the beach. It took my breath away with how lovely the beach was.

On our last day we walked the other way towards Bournemouth Pier and sat on Boscombe Pier on our way back, pure Heaven.

This was taken on our first day on our first walk along the amazing stretch of beach.

On the train back I felt sad that our short break away was coming to an end.

Another photo of the wonderful beach could not stop taking photos was so photo genic.

Above is our train ride to Poole where we meet my husband’s parents and had wonderful fish ‘n’ chips.

Below is of Poole Harbour where we had a bit of retail therapy. My husband bought a new pair of trainers and I bought Henry two pairs of shoes and myself all £3.99 each. I love a bargain.

Was a fabulous break away and would so recommend it if you are looking to go on a short break away. We will definitely return too.
