It Is Never To Windy To Pose!?!...


After seeing my personal video they made everyone to celebrate 10 years on Facebook, I realised all photo are magical. 

I joined Facebook in 2009. My 2 youngest children were babies and my young (soon to be men) sons were young teenage. 

Every photo tells a story, every story we remember with pride. 

My oldest sons waiting to run a race...
The stony beech at Bognor Regis...
Three youngest children making a pop group...
New trainer...
New haircut...
My youngest son eating ice cream at a race track (looking like a toddler)...
On the rides at Butlins...
Birthday...
Proms...
Posing..

To mention just a few..

Today's photos tell the story of a cold day to windy to pose!! 

A day that no one wanted to go out in but ended up being a really cool day out to shopping with lots of treats...

I Can't Sing... I Can't Dance... But Who Cares I Smell Like Rihanna...


How cold is it?

Seriously how cold and windy is it?

As if the non stop rain was not bad enough!!

Not letting the weather spoil mine and the little two's fun we went out today, a mile walk and a 40 minute train ride into Nottingham.


Hope you all had a nice Valentines day?

Hubby brought me a lovely Rihanna perfume set and a beautiful card. I smelt this perfume at Christmas but wasn't sure if I liked it at the time. When we were on our way home I realised I love it, arr to late then!!

It was a lovely surprise!!

As it was so cold, windy and raining last night we stayed in. I put on my lovely new perfume, onesie and watched Benidorm on Sky plus and we shared a bottle of red wine and lots of cakes!!

What I wore to Nottingham~

Jumper ~ Charity shop
Dress ~ Sainsbury's
Tights ~ Primark
Boots ~ Barratts


Another night in, Onsie on, "take me out" to watch and more cakes!!

We have just discovered Lidl's pick and mix cake!!

Oh my they are soo good and the big savoury pretzels taste amazing too..

Now we have to make plans what to do in the holidays...

What are your plans for the weekend?

Get Busy Living...


One Saturday me and my youngest 2 children had a fun day out shopping in Nottingham.

First we walked a mile to the train station, kicking a few fallen leaves on the way through the parks. Then lots of games and giggles on the train ride.

Exciting looking around all the shops as they are filled with wonderful gifts for Christmas. Planning what they would like off Santa!!

A few treats later, bags full of Christmas decoration and pop for the way home, we meet my husband from work and got a lift home in the car.


I had lots of fun trying to take lots 100's of photos of my feet and lots of selfies with my camera. I may have looked very vain in the streets trying to stand and take a shoot of myself but I did have a good reason,,, honest!!

I was asked by Cheeky shoes if I would like to take part in a fun photo video. Where I take 100's of photos of me wearing the new Cheeky shoes and they make a cool video out of the pictures. I am so excited to see how the video turns out, so watch this space as I can't wait to share...

Micky Flanagan At The Capital FM Arena Nottingham 14-16 November 2013 Review!!



We have not long arrived home from an amazing gig at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham (as I write this review). Tonight we went to see the wonderfully funny man Micky Flanagan. Still buzzing from the show, I can't wait to share it with you.

Thoughts on the night out.

Micky Flanagan on his year long tour of the country has stepped back upto the plate to deliver a new show full of classic stories and gags. Gone is the "outout" gag and in is the new hot topics, covering such ground as Great British bake off, burkas, 70s tv stars, supermarkets, cancer and even 9/11. Nothing is off the menu. Everything is delivered in his fine charming cockney way. Not everyone would get away with it. Micky seems to charm everyone enough that you can laugh about anything and not be offended.

It was my first visit to the CapitalFM arena. One of my elder children regularly travels down to watch ice hockey, even my youngest son had been to watch WWE. So I was looking forward to going inside the arena I had passed many times. Easy access plenty of entrances ample toilet facilities and even though it was a full house no major queues for food or drink. Which makes a change from some venues. Everyone had a good view and two giant screens honed in on Micky as he was doing his many walks around the stage. A place then I hope to visit more often in the future. Hubby if you read this take note...

Overall then a great night brilliant venue and amazing act made a normal midweek evening fly by. A bonus the kids had all been good too, so no excuse not to go out again. Tickets are available Friday and Saturday night darling!!


About the show

About this review-

I got invited to see Micky Flanagan's visit to the Capital FM Arena Nottingham. I was not paid for this post and all thoughts are my own honest opinion.

Victoria Embankment Nottingham : How Does Your Garden Grow?...











 
 
This week I'm sharing a beautiful park in Nottingham we stumbled upon a few weeks back when it they held a Arm forces day. My husband often talked about talking me on a run around the embankment, as he knew I would love it, he was so right.
 
 Especially when we found this amazing flower garden. Whilst every where was packed with visitors we had a lovely stroll around the peaceful gardens.
 
Can you believe 3 weeks of the summer holidays have gone already? Still lots of time to find some more beautiful garden though. How does your garden grow?

Well the sun shine keeps popping out for a few minutes at  a time then hiding for a few hours behind the wind, I am so looking forward to wearing my summer dresses too.

 Yesterday I managed a good lot of exercise from a 5 miles run in the morning, a 3 miles run and a hour in the gym in the afternoon to a bike ride with the children after a mile and half walk to fetch them from school, boy was I tired out last night.

 Aching this morning so no exercise for me until later me thinks...



Starting the day off with good intentions my husband brought us a big box of strawberries so we all had a big bowl of weetabix and strawberries for breakfast, he also brought us some donuts that I am trying to resist!!


Had a great weekend starting off at Nottingham for the Armed Forces Day

  

A walk around the beautiful Embankment



Then a walk into Nottingham for a bit of sunglasses and cake shopping
To lots of bike riding on Sunday...

Whats everyone been up to this past weekend?
