Two words...


I know I am typically British in moaning about the weather but right now I am too hot to care (lol).
What happened to early summer weather?
Do you remember when the weather got gradually hotter? 26C was considered very hot and those days were few and far between each year!
Warm days where you could go out and do anything without feeling like you were melting!
Now our seasons seem to have an on/off switch. Maybe mother nature finds it more energy saving to go from 1 extreme to the other? or maybe we're being punished for not looking after her earth too well.
We now wait a very long, very cold winter for a fairly short summer that is mostly far too hot to do anything much in.

Yes O.K I am very British.

Life is ....

Ok I have a confession to make... I watch Dr Who... every week with my kids, we sit down together and watch it (thats what I tell myself anyway) ...David Tennant was an amazing Dr, but I have managed to upset my 12 year old son by telling him that I think Matt Smith is my favourite Dr ever, he has a softer quality about him that i find quite amazing to watch, he has the quirkiness needed to be Dr Who but displays a much more tender side...
This weeks episode (Doctor Who Series 5 Vincent and the Doctor) has to be one of my favourites ever, overall very little cast in it and not full of the usual enemies, but great none the less (not sure my kids were as captivated as I was though lol)
I have found this video on youtube, been put together really well and has the sound from my favourite part in... if only I could live my life the same way...

The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.  x

Been a while....

...since I last blogged, I can't believe it was last month!
Its been the Easter holidays here for the last couple of weeks so the usual routine has been forgotten, though is now feeling very much needed, my son has had heat exhaustion for the last week after playing out way too much and not resting or drinking enough, so a lesson well and truly learned there for all of us! He has been very poorly but is now on the mend :)

I recently watched the ITV (uk) comedy/drama Married Single Other and really loved it, bought myself the download of the series and am hoping they bring out a soundtrack to it, as I loved that too :)
This was the theme song to the show :)

Good for the soul

In case you hadn't already kinda guessed I LOVE music, I can't think of a genre that I could say I don't like at all it just depends on mood and emotions at the time or attatched to the particular tune or song.
This song I was recently told to listen to by a good friend of mine, I now can't stop listening to it, anytime of day or night, no matter what my mood it makes me stop and listen to it, I love the different tempos and emotions it makes me feel whenever I listen and I seem to hear something different everytime.

I know this was from a film but I'm sure I've heard it before, and pretty sure I've not seen the film.... anyone know if its been used in anything else? advert maybe?

Busy weekend....

I have had a great weekend! On saturday I was taken out for the day to Winchester for a surprise day out... what I didn't realise was that one of my very best friends who lives more than 250 miles away had driven down to surprise me, we had a great day out, was so good to see him and catch up,it had been a long 18 months. :)

We'd also been on a shopping trip to Southampton the week before for my mums birthday, that was a great day too! I'm being spoilt :)
While we were out we stopped for a drink and my daughter wanted hot chocolate, the girl at the counter asked if cream and marshmallows were wanted - knowing my daughter I said yes... this is what she got!! (Wow)

Lazy Saturday :)

After a majorly long day yesterday shopping with my mum on her birthday I am today having a very lazy/relaxing day :)
I got myself some different clothes (For me) yesterday, trackie type trousers and a hooded top, I feel very young today in them lol, finally got some black nail varnish too, been wanting some of that for ages - I painted my nails a while ago and love them! :)

I keep listening to a song by JLS at the moment (far from the boy band loving stage of my life but like who/what I like because of the song/words or whatever, don't ever not like something without listening just because of who its by!) I love the video too, its kinda simple though the effects are really clever, you can see it here or via my favourites page

Hope you have a good weekend! :) x
