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!!
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...
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!!

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?
On Friday it was inset day at school, so I planned a day down Nottingham shopping for summer clothes .It was great that on Wednesday I won us a free lunch from the Co-operative in their pop up restaurant that was in the old market square for a few days.
It was so warm walking to the train station, that everyone got tired!!
We tweeted to be entered into a competition to win a holiday...
And got to try some yummy free food!!
Now got to plan some fun days out for the big holidays that wont be long in getting here...
