Queen Mania


I think I have Queen Mania as at the moment I can’t help but play their music, and through watching Queen on Youtube came across this singer called Marc Martel.

Check out this video here of his version of Love of My Life

I also love the Adam Lambert’s version of the Cher song, Believe.

Check out this interview of Brian May interview with Lorraine, he talks about how Freddie Mercury would have loved that Queen continue on their legacy and I think he couldn’t be more truthful if he tried.

I so want to see them in concert now, and love their music like never before.

Do you like Queen?

Whats your favourite Queen song?

Watch “How to Master Your Money & Set Yourself Free with Amanda Steinberg” on YouTube


Check out this video on how to Master your money and Set Yourself Free. Really brilliant video.

Looking after those pennies


The one place I constantly need help with is money. I have battled with debt, which is like a dark cloud hanging over me, that I continuously need reminding on how to live with a minimal life style.

In searching I came across these videos on “Miniimalism and Money- How to spend intentionally” by Muchelleb. See below:

She also does a video of how she paid off $30,000 in 1.5 years (and travel Europe).

They are worth watching, and really helps to control those pennies when you have so much to pay for.

Sometimes it seems endless that is why I budget all the time, from grocery shopping, to gifts for people, to any clothes or shoes I need as I try to use what I have got, and only buy for any replacement clothes and shoes, when they have become completely and utterly worn away.

If I never budgeted I would be worse off, and so whatever you spend your money on you should budget all the time, and one the thing I try to get out off is paying full price. If I can get something in a sale that is worth spending on, I will go for the sale.

Do you like to budget?

How do you control your money?

I would love to hear from you.

Rainy days and hot weather


I don’t want to moan about the heat, because in Britain I have come to know bad summers where there has been less hot days than cold days.

The heat has affected my sleep but I am still not going to moan.

It felt good getting out early this morning, dropping my son off at nursery, but was tired out from walking to walk anymore, I had to get the bus back.

Now I am sitting on my bed, sweating buckets, but I know it not gonna be any cooler outside, and like I said there are thunderstorms on the way.

Since writing this blog it has rained and we did have a thunderstorm, so entertained myself by cleaning and playing some tunes, and watching some videos on Youtube.

The tune I am loving at the moment is by Ultravox, “Dancing with tears in my eyes”

What tunes do you like to play when it is raining and you don’t want to go outside?

I’d love to hear from you.

Sunny days


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:


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,

Today I am doing some chilling, whilst catching up on errands.

I have been watching a lot of Youtube, and as I am big fan of Celine Dion watching a documentary showing how she is preparing for her return to Las Vegas. It is about 4 or 5 years old, but I love watching as I find it inspiring.
