My super Sunday πŸŽπŸ’¨

So today we went to Beaulieu Supercar weekend. It isn’t something we usually do but we all absolutely loved it and are 100% doing it next year! Would recommend anyone who can to go.


We saw lots of lovely cars watched them speed down the stretch and watched them have a sound off in the main arena area.

Got lots of pictures of riley with the cars even saw a car with a number plate with nearly his name. He was so proud as you can see below.


He even got to sit in some of the cars and meet the drivers. Below is the guy who does a lot of YouTube videos.


Layla encountered grass for the very first time too when we sat and had our picnic. She froze when she was on her belly didn’t move a muscle (I need a patch in my flat for when I need to get on πŸ˜‚) but she enjoyed it and after trying to stop her eating the grass for about 100 times we opted to feed her ice cream. 

By the end of the day though Rileys legs stopped working and Layla was evicted from her chair so riley could get pushed about. If only it was that easy for us adults.


But do you know what made today even more special? I finally got to meet my auntie (mums half sister) and her little family for the very first time. She was adopted as a baby and with thanks to my dad we finally met each other.

It was like an episode out of the UK programme long lost families and it wasn’t awkward or anything felt normal and like we’ve always known each other. I can’t wait to meet up again and get to know each other more.

So Today has been amazing and I’m going to bed knackered and sunburnt πŸ™ˆ but with a very big smile on my face.

Celine Dion Live 2017

So on Saturday 29th July 2017 my lovely daddy treated me to see Celine Dion at the London O2 arena.

My dad absolutely loves her music and I was brought up listening to it. When I was younger I remember travelling to Blackbush market singing at the top of my lungs with my friends Beki & Sammie. Good job dad didn’t record us we must of sounded like a cats chior!

My dad had only been to her concert 5 weeks earlier on his own but when he heard she added some extra dates well he just had to go again and take me along too. I’m such a lucky girl.

As usual he got his PA to book the tickets. His PA is me by the way I think he would be totally lost without me sometimes. His age shows sometimes (only joking dad).

We travelled up (Southampton to London can be a bit of a drive) had something to eat before going through security to get our seats.

Going through security was an experience. I went through no problems, dad went through and the lady said sorry sir I’m going to have to give you a quick pat down. Always has to be my dad. Anyway she patted my dad down and turns round “sir you have something hard in your pocket” my dad being the filthy minded bugger he is started to giggle said I know story of my life love and pulled out a packet of polo mints. To say me, dad and the people around had a giggle while the poor lady looked embarrassed was a understatement. 

We went to the block 101 of the London O2 arena and was directed to our seats. We was getting closer and closer to the front and I could actually see my dads smile getting bigger and bigger. We was so close to the stage we felt we had hit the jackpot.


We was actually going to see her in person and we could actually watch the lady herself rather than the big screens. We couldn’t wait and was definetly counting our lucky stars.

So at 8pm the support act came on to warm the crowd up. Wow she was amazing herself and I would actually pay money to see her in her own concert. She was a song impersonator and she was bloody brilliant.


That’s her…. she sung songs of SIA / Susan Boyle / Whitney / Tina Turner / Mariah / Adele and so on. She sounded just like them. (Below is a sneak peak of her.. can you guess who she’s singing?).

​After her the lady herself came on stage. Our seats didn’t disappoint we actually watched the lady herself preform right in front of us. We didn’t need to look at the big screens provided once! (The pics do not do her justice)


She preformed all the classics, told us how much she respects the song writer Pink for writing a song to help her cope with the death of her husband. She was absolutely brilliant and may I just say she can sing live. Her voice is just as amazing live as you hear on TV / CDs / Radio and her music DVDs etc. Her concert was probably the best concert I have ever been to (and I’ve been to a few). I will treat you to a snippet of her singing live to the classic beauty and the beast. Honestly if you like her music and ever get the opportunity GO AND SEE HER!!

​​
I throughly enjoyed the whole evening. But do you know the best bit of all? I got to spend some quality time with my daddy and make a memory that only the two of us will share for the rest of our lives. 


Its definetly been one to remember and one I will forever cherish. Thank you and I love you dad xx

The journey begins…

So it’s 399 days till our holiday. I’ve started to feel all fat and frumpy and exhausted all the time (think having a 7 year old and 8 month old has something to do with that though). 

So I’ve decided time to change. I want to lose weight. So by the time I’m due to go on holiday I want to lose by the time I go on holiday… 3st 6lb / 48lb

That’s 57 weeks from today… totally do able right?


(This was me on the 21st July 2017 at Alton towers.)

Saying how much weight I want to lose out loud seems impossible and I’m not quite sure how I’m going to do it. Used to do slimming world but now I have two beautiful babies and their daddy works nights I wouldn’t have anyone to watch the kids while I went to a meeting. I don’t want to just live on salads either… I love eating nice foods so although I think my target is totally doable at the same time I’m rather scared I won’t achieve it.

So I’m not quite sure what to do so for now I’m just going to cut back on all I know isn’t very good to aid my weight loss. 

Any advice would be great. Anything that isn’t going to cost would be ideal with paying for a holiday and all that.

Let this journey begin… the weekly updates commence…..

Should parents be allowed to get their baby girls ears pierced?

So there is a lot of heated debates over social media at the moment on the topic of if parents should get their babies ears pierced or not. (Above picture is not of my baby by the way).

I personally don’t see what the big deal is. Each to their own. If the parents want to do that’s their choice and if when the baby is older no longer wants to wear earrings they can just take them out.

Maybe my opinion is based because my parents had my ears pierced when I was 6 months old. I certainly don’t hold it against them for doing it and if anything I’m greatful now I’m older because I can pick and choose if I wear earrings or not now as my piercing never closes up. 

The NHS say it’s a safe procedure providing its carried out by a liscenced practioner.

I haven’t got my daughters ears pierced but then if I do or don’t that’s mine and her daddy’s choice as her parents.

I’d love to hear what your views are…

Lego cards…

So the supermarket Sainsbury’s started doing for every Β£10 you spend in store you earn 1 pack of Lego cards….

So family and friends started collecting them for Riley (I don’t personally shop in Sainsbury’s and while these cards where available I reminded myself why… they are much more expensive than ASDA (equivalent to Walmart) or Tesco). 

Grandad was pretty awesome and managed to get hold of a box of Lego cards from someone who works at Sainsbury’s after the stopped giving them away. He got 300 packets… each packet has 4 cards so he got 1200 Lego cards. Out of all those cards did he get all 140 he needed to complete the Lego book he also got… NOPE!


So then it was down to mummy to help little man finish his book. After a week of swapping, sending cards through the post and about Β£20 spent on stamps I finally finished Lego cards book off. 

Riley was made up said I was super mum for helping him complete it… I however am glad to see the back of these lego cards and if I don’t see anymore I will be happy..

So thanks Sainsbury’s but please don’t be in any rush to do anything like that again πŸ˜‚

Teething Baby!!

Approach with caution exhausted mummy post today…

So the tooth fairy’s evil twin sister the teething fairy has arrived in our household this week and has possessed our happy 6 month baby girl Layla and turned her in to what I can only describe as the devil baby!

Luckily that nasty teething fairy didn’t get hold of Layla when her first two teeth cut through but she’s back with avengence this time as her top tooth is cutting through.

I honestly forgot how exhausting it is when you have a teething baby. I must admit I have had it extremely easy with this little princess so I was bound to have sometime crop up sooner rather than later.

I’m Going To Be A Auntie β€οΈ

So I can finally share some exciting news and say I’m going to be an auntie. Ben’s little sister Maezee is expecting her first little baby. 


We (me & Ben) are extremely happy for Mae and her partner Tony. We are very much looking forward to having cuddles but skipping the dirty nappies and sleepless nights this time round.

Riley is super excited to become a big cousin and I’m sure Layla is excited to have a little play friend. There will only be 13 months between them.

Exciting times ahead people. A new little bubba to come into the family ❀️
