Another year is over, time to get the champagne out and sing in another new year of fun and hopefully no more social distancing. Looking back at my last year’s goals I can safely say that a lot of what I wanted to do did not happen, I didn’t go to any events, I most defiantly haven’t been able to pass my driving test and you bet your butt that I haven’t moved yet but I have found love, so that’s something. This year has been a complete up and down year, there has been a lot happening in my personal life that I cannot and will not mention here but I am hopeful that in the new year things will be sorted and I won’t have to stress about it too much anymore. There is a quote from the TV show The Act which I feel is perfect for the current situation I am under and agree with it wholeheartedly. But I am trying to keep my head held high with it all and not worry too much, as worrying often leads to anxiety and I’ve had that under control for such a long time now that I don’t want… View Post
I had so many posts, so many ideas and plans and suddenly my county plus London was plunged into tier 4 which basically put every single plan we had basically down the toilet. Our original plan was to head to my mum’s house, bake things and eat chips, thankfully we can do two of those but going to my mum on Christmas eve has always been my routine since having the children, but once we knew we could no longer be with three family bubbles. Everything changed. How I feel is completely deflated, I’ve shared my feelings on my Twitter about how I just feel so utterly… blah about it all, we all sort of knew this was going to happen but you still cannot help feel down about it but I didn’t want to also just not post anything before i switch off and take a break until January. I truly hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas whatever and whoever you have it with and that you all stay safe and stay at home. Happy Christmas.

Frozen Unicorns from Gamely Games is a fun and easy game for children to pick up, learn and play for 3 or more players, the aim of the game is you, the guesser has to guess what the others have picked up from the pack of cards. The players need to select the cards from either pack of easy, medium or hard cards that all have a different animal or person on the back of it, while they are selecting their cards from the pile you either turn around or close your eyes, after everyone apart from you, the guesser has seen their cards count down from 5 and on 1 shout ‘FREEZE!’ which will indicate to the players that it is time to stand still, similar to musical statues, in the poses that they have on the card for example; Frozen Kangaroo. Once you have shouted freeze the players cannot move or make any sounds and you then have three chances to guess what they are, once you have guessed correctly or if in fact all three of your guesses have been used up, your turn as Guesser ends and another persons turn to have a go. The sillier… View Post
Christmas songs are here, and if I am honest, they’ve probably been here since late October in some stores in our high street. I have avoided them until at least December, while I enjoy Christmas songs, I don’t want to listen to them too much and get fed up with them. However I do of course have my favourites, some of them aren’t as traditional as others, some I find it hard to even locate on Christmas playlists when I was a child, my mum had a Christmas album that I basically grew up with and holds a weird special place in my heart. It was released in 1995 and I have yet been able to find a better replacement, I have however created a Deezer playlist with these songs on them for my own personal enjoyment. 5 – Last Christmas, Wham! – This one has been growing on me for a few years, I can’t explain it but over the course of the past Christmases this one was never on my list of favourites but now its weeded its way into my life and I love it. The music video makes me wish I had a dozen good friends,… View Post
