My super Sunday 🏎💨

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 😂) 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 🙈 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

Lego cards…

So the supermarket Sainsbury’s started doing for every £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 £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 😂

A dogs purpose film review

 I absolutely LOVED this film. It had me laughing and crying throughout the whole film. 

My other half thought I was a bit potty one minute crying at the film and then the next minute laughing.

It really was a enjoyable family film to watch. We all enjoyed it.

The story tells us of one particular dog, trying to find his purpose in life and all the dog lives it took to find this purpose and how with all his lives he finds his way back to one particular person.. Ethan.

I don’t want to give to much away if you haven’t seen the film, but trust me it is definetly a film to watch. I honestly feel I could watch this film over and over again.

It has 10/10 for the family film in our household. We loved it.

My little treat from Ben 🍿

So today Ben had a little surprise for me.

He wouldn’t tell me anything what we was doing and sorted our good friends Michelle & Mark to watch the kids so he could treat me.

Well he took me to see one of my favourite childhood films the new live action movie. Beauty and the beast. My excitement was unreal I felt like a child again I couldn’t wait to watch it.

Before the film started we went for some food at TGI Fridays. We ordered.. waited.. waited.. and waited some more. Thinking they must of been out shooting the cow for our burgers we was about to complain when our waiter came over to apologise. They had a technical error and although our order was placed on the system it didn’t go over to the chefs system. Arrrgggghhhh we was starving by this time but was assured our order was now taking priority. We didn’t have to make a complaint the manager came straight over and gave us 25% discount and 5 minutes later our food arrived and it was really nice.

Then it was time for our film. Not only was Ben treating me to a cinema trip but we went to the newest cinema with… wait for it.. recliner chairs!!! It was so awesome I didn’t have dead legs or a bad back from the usual uncomfy cinema seats.


The film… I loved it. Totally lived up to my expectations. Had all the classic songs you love in the original animated movie plus new ones. I couldn’t help but sing along to the ones I knew in my head.

I loved the slight plot changes too (I won’t say unless someone is reading this who hasn’t yet seen it). 

It was a great film and I will be buying it on DVD when it’s released.

Ben dozed off during the film. Had to nudge him because he started to snore. Bless him he was so tired from work but still made the time and effort to treat me and give me a break from being mummy for a few hours. 

Had a lovely day catching up just the two of us and watching a film I’ve been so eager to see but also couldn’t wait to get home and snuggle with our babies and watch a film of Rileys choice. 

All in all a lovely day.

Disney Kingdoms 

So anyone that knows me, knows I love everything Disney. Being a mum just gives me an excuse to relive my Disney days (not that I needed that excuse but people seem to be able to accept it more now that I do).

Anyway Riley came in one day and after seeing a advert on of corse the Disney channel asked for this new app called “Disney kingdoms” so as a good mummy as he asked so very nicely I downloaded the game onto my phone and started to let him play it….

That night I went to bed and my phone buzzed and it was this bloody game. Thought I’d be a nice mummy and do it for him so he got further in the game.. I so shouldn’t of done that…

It’s now been 2 weeks on… Riley isn’t allowed to play my phone game anymore and has his own Disney kingdoms on his iPad (when he plays my game he spends all my gems I work so hard to collect). 

I’m literally addicted to it. When ever I get 5mins to myself (which isn’t very often with a soon to be 7 year old and a 4 month old but when I do) your catch me playing this bloody game instead of doing what other parents do when they have 5mins to themselves. What do you do again? Why did Riley have to introduce me to it lol.

The only thing I find frustrating with this game is because apple have removed the game centre off the handsets you can only log into it in your settings now, you have no way of adding your friends (so I can add Riley of corse and we can help each other send items). So anyone that works within apple come on guys sort it out!!

Me & Riley sit next to each other and play this game together. He tells me some parts I need to do and I tell him others. We’re a team but with our own little Disney kingdoms. (Before anyone starts he is limited on the amount of time he plays on iPads, game consoles etc but to be honest he actually prefers drawing and writing stories his imagination is amazing). 

If you or you children like all things Disney I would highly recommend this app!

Has anyone else done something for the kids and then found they got slightly addicted to it? Let me know your guilty pleasures.
