How other people live

Standard

There is nothing more interesting to me than watching how other people live, and I have got into watching some Youtube videos about how a family of three live in a van travelling across Australia.

Check out below:

I find it refreshing to watch, as it makes me realise you have to make the most of what you have. There is a lady from England who lives in a Yurt in New Zealand.

Check out channel below:

They do unschooling, as they learn as they do physical things like picking fruit and vegetables, crafting and playing outdoors. I see it as a education to live a more minimal life and do simple play to educate my own son, before he begins school.

I also been watching videos on other blog writers for inspiration, check out example of a video I came across was really interesting.

As a blog writer I believe in learning and educating myself for inspiration and to make the most of my days rather than lounging around all day doing nothing, as that does makes the days go slow.

So what do love to watch that inspires you I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Sunday Funday

Standard

Please see my new blog I wrote on my blog website:

https://sportsandfitnesspassion.wordpress.com

I shared a new workout video I used yesterday, and I am going to  have Youtube workout week. I am gonna do another workout today aswell.

Today my mum took us to see my brothers new place, and now I am home, catching up on errands.

My husband and I have been checking out some movies and I watched Skull Island.

Definitely would recommend, an excellent film.

I  am loving the new song by Paloma Faith song called “Guilty”.

It has been a good 2018, and begun filming again for my Youtube channel. A new Day in  life vlog coming again soon.

Sunday’s I use the day to catch up on bits and bobs, and watching some old films and a bit of football in the afternoon.

What do you do on a Sunday? I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Birthdays and Christmas

Standard

It has been a busy month with it being my son’s birthday last weekend, aswell as my brothers and my mums.

Halloween has been and gone, along with fireworks night. I didn’t do any trickle treating, but a few little ones near where I live, did and didn’t go to any fireworks displays. I prefer to  be cozy at home and indoors.

For my son’s birthday we took him with some friends to Flipout in Wandsworth, which I would recommend as it is great way for all the children to have fun, for a couple of hours.

I have been loving a new song called Whisky Tango, by Jack Savoretti. Check out video below:

And have been listening to some great classics too, beginning with George Michael’s song, such as the song A Different Corner.

And Wham song called Everything she wants. Just a few of George Michael’s classics.

In Strictly Come Dancing I got to say I do miss Bryan Conley as he had the fun factor and now the competition is hotting up I think the rest of the celebs are taking it quite seriously. I nevertheless am still loving the show.

I have no interest in the X Factor whatsoever. I have been watching repeats of Only Fools And Horses and Friends on my Now TV box.

I have now posted some  pictures of my Halloween decoration on my Seasonal Clear up page on Carriesrealworld.com

I will post more of my home makeover as we now have new curtains and lights. We have started to decorate for Christmas too.

I am going to  post a few gift guides coming soon, to help with ideas of what to do for Christmas this year.

So have a good rest of the weekend everyone and please let me know what you have been up to too.

Many thanks for reading,

Disastrous morning

Standard

Yes it was an explosion of pooh, I had to deal with this morning. Sorry if this is TMI, but I had say it, it wasn’t the morning I had planned, especially being nursery day. I feel there will be others who will give me sympathy.

I thought it would be okay to have a little extra 5 minutes in bed would be okay but how wrong was I?

So I had to give son a bath before nursery this morning and then get him dressed, take him to nursery and then clean up the mess, wasn’t even 8 o’clock.

After cleaning up the mess oh and I forgot to mention I had a blocked toilet to sort out too. My fault, putting baby wipes down the toilet is a big NO NO.

Apart from that I managed to catch up on some TV and watched a lovely program about David Jason, his life on TV and how he became a big household name, was great to watch. Only Fools and Horses is my ultimate favourite, and I wish it could come back just one last time.

Then caught up with TOWIE, I know but I am allowed one guilty pleasure. Last night I watch the Great British Bake Off and Doctor Foster, and I have gotten back into Eastenders after 10 years or so.

I was watching some old ones, and got me wanting to watch the recent episodes. I have no idea really what is going on, but it was good to watch it again.

Please check out my new book review on my main site that I wrote today,

http://www.carriesrealworld.com/book-reviews

I didn’t do much for my wedding anniversary, we had a drink in doors with our dinner, as we had a take away, then watched TV in bed, that was it.

So I would love to know what you’ve been up to, and how your weeks been, please comment below, What is your favourite show David Jason was in, and do you know what has been happening in Eastenders please I would love for someone to fill me in.

Many thanks for reading,

What a week it has been, condolences to those who have been effected by the hurricanes, it’s frightening what nature can do at times, and not much you can do, but to try and give love to those effected.

We are now officially in Autumn in the U.K and weather been a bit hit and miss, one minute it is pouring with rain and the next sunny, the concores are now out so time to collect to stop those creepy crawling spiders entering the home.

I know not everyone believes that myth about spiders and concores, but I do.

I would like to send a special message as we passed the anniversary of 9/11, I remember that day so clearly, I was working for the Hammersmith and Fulham Council and someone got a call from some family who worked in the trade center, and I thought it was being exaggerated until I saw what was happening myself.

I remember the day after feeling so sad and wanted to hide away and grieve. It was just horrific, that I was happy that Eastenders was on, to feel some distraction from it and watched a lot of comedies to take my mind of what had happened. All people had done that day is to go to work, yet there were some cowardly people wanting to take that away. My heart goes out to the victims and families of someone who lost their lives that day, RIP.

On a happier note I did watch the start of the new series of Strictly Come Dancing, of all the celebrities being partnered up, I thought it was a brilliant launch show. I can’t wait until two weeks for the actual new series to begin. I think Bryan Conley and Debbie McGee have natural rhythm and so I will look forward to those two, and the guy from Eastenders. I wonder who will be the dark horse this year, if there is one?

I watched more of the X Factor which wasn’t bad, they have made it more about the singers and cut it with the sob stories, as that was getting on my nerves. Even when The Voice began to do that it got on my nerves and concentrated more on the actual auditions themselves, some were really good, that I will continued to watch it.

I missed Coldfeet so I will have catch up on that, but I loved the new series called Liar, on ITV 1 don’t know what is going to happen there or who is telling the truth. I watched more of Doctor Foster, nearly missed it due to falling a sleep but was good from what I watched and is a good series.

In two days time I celebrate my wedding anniversary my 11th Wedding Anniversary, we haven’t planned anything but I sure we will do something to celebrate.

If you have a wedding coming up then congratulations, and remember it is about the two of you, so if you get those like we did who invite themselves, you can say no, as we invited those who did that, but they never ended up turning up.

The other tip I would give, if you are planning your wedding, tell all those involved ahead of time of what is going to happen so they know what music to play and when they are needed for the day. You don’t want speeches to be done after your bestman has had a skinful of beer, something may come up you don’t what to be mentioned. Not saying that this happened, but we did have a mix up with the music. Our fault as we didn’t send out a criteria of what music was to begin and where.

So if you any tips on weddings or you too have a wedding anniversary coming up, I would love to know.

Many thanks for reading,

A True Entertainer

Standard

It was on Friday evening when I met up with my husband’s family and we were having a few drinks in the pub called Oasis, in Southampton, when I heard the news about Bruce Forsyth.

I went to see him some years ago Live when I went to see the Sunday Night at the London Palladium, he was truly amazing. He didn’t have a warm up man or anything, he took charge of the audience throughout the show, and was in my eyes truly brilliant.

I always say that you can tell when someone is truly good when they are brilliant live, and he truly was, and I am gutted that I never got my dream which was to tap dance in Sir Bruce, but I will always still dream of this in my heart.

He was a truly a wonderful entertainer, see video below of his interviews.

His legacy will continue, but you will not see another real entertainer like Sir Bruce again. He was one of a kind, and a national treasure, and he will be truly missed on our TV Screens.

Truly talented, could play the piano, tap dance and be funny, and win the audience over all the time.

God bless you Sir Bruce you were a True Entertainer.

Many thanks for reading,

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,
