A Meal for a tenner

Standard

Thanks to my mum, who is the greatest, we have been introduced to the supermarket meal deals. Now each Saturday we now save a tenner to purchase a meal deal.

The great thing about doing the meal deal is that you get a bottle of wine with it aswell, for you fellow wine drinkers out there.

I think it is totally worth it, so far we have apart from today, done the Tescos meal deal and both times they have been really nice meals.

Today we decided to try the Mark and Spencers one and I will report back on what I thought. We have gone with steak, mash potato and a bottle of wine.

I  am already in the opinion that the Tescos one you get slightly more for your money as it includes one main, one side, dessert and bottle of wine, but with the Marks and Spencers one you get a main, a side or dessert and a bottle of wine.

You can do the meal deal just for one or for two.

So I am gonna enjoy the rest of my Saturday and look forward to another hopefully nice meal.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Many thanks for reading,

End of another week

Standard

Its Friday Yippy. No more school run for two days, hooray. Not that I don’t like the school run it is such a mission, as Henry my son loves to watch people going passed, the pond, the trees for squirrels and the buses going by.

Today is going to be an easy day for me, as got most of what I needed to do during the week. At the moment I am listening on Google Music APP Guetta and Sia Flames.

Not sure if I am that impressed with Google Music App as you have to pay for it, and should be able to listen to podcasts as as music, but it won’t let me andI got it because I wanted to listen to podcasts not just music.

Another App I am using is Podcasts which is available from Play Store and it is completely free to use and I am loving it.

I love listening to Tony Robbins and been watching a lot of videos on Youtube by Erin May Henry, Gillian Perkins, Sugar Mamma, Alexa Aka MissTrenchCoat and Project Life Mastery. I would recommend them to watch as they really help motivate me and inspire me.

This weekend it is my brothers birthday and my sons, so will be celebrating those and have small gathering of family.

So who inspires you on Podcasts, Youtube and what you up to this weekend I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

End of another week

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,

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,
