Bye 2018, Hello 2019

 Well for my little blog, 2018 hasn’t been the best, I managed a whopping 17 blog posts which is atrocious.  So for me in 2018 I just clearly fell out of love with my blog (not you lovely people who are reading it of course) but for 2019 I have given it a little makeover  so hopefully I will fall back into loving my blog as I have missed it.

      I thought I would take the time to say bye-bye to 2018 as you have been a good year (we went to Disney World again, hehe).  That said, Little Miss P broke her arm again but everything else has just been pretty smooth sailing.
Oh and quit my job.  So I’m going into 2019 without a job.

I can see 2019 being a bit more of an interesting year, maybe challenging. The truth be told I can’t really tell what’s going to happen in 2019 other than my sister is getting married and Little Miss P will start high school, which I am nervous about. But that is pretty much the only thing that I know will happen in 2019. Obviously I have some goals that I want to work towards and obviously there are some thing that I don’t want to happen.

So Hello to 2019: please be nice to me and I will be nice to you back :-)

Dear so and so

I use to do blog posts like this and I enjoyed them so I'm definitely bring these back this year. This is a little description on what Dear so and so is all about; it can pretty much be about anything but mainly about what's got you angry or upset, or something that you don't quite understand. Now let's get into it.

Dear Woman in Tesco
    My little Tesco down the road has one scan your self till and it has always had a separate line, which I always go to as it is card only. I went to it as I normally do and then someone else in the other line said I am waiting for that. So I did let them in front of me and I moved back into the other line. She was having a right moan about it still while she was waiting for the other lady in front of her to finish, and then I got to the till before she did and she was moaning even more. The fact is if she didn't moan so much I would have let her in front of me in the other line as I am nice like that, but as she was being a right cow, I wasn't going to. I think she got what she deserved that time.

Dear The Thorns in the Garden 
I am not a gardener. If it wasn't for the spiders and the wasps I would be ok with it, but there seems to be loads in my garden and while cutting a bush down (only making it smaller) the thorns got stuck in my arm, foot, hands and even down my top. I had about three spiders on me that I saw and can't remember the number of wasps I saw, but saying that I think I did a good job and will be back out there to do some more.

Dear Claire's Accessories
I went into this shop to find a few things for Little Miss P's party as it's a girly shop so I thought it would be ideal. But I walked in and two girls were having their ears pierced as it's free at the moment. But it took the two staff members to do it so no one was at the till. They saw me waiting and didn't even say anything like "be right with you" let alone for one of them to come over. So I left my things at the till and walked out.

Little Miss P

Well she's not so much Little Miss P now as she is 5ft tall and is now into double digits, she is now my 10 year old tween, who so far has turned out a well mannered if a bit shy young lady who tries to step out of her comfort zone. And that's what I love about her; she likes to try and make new friends and not to stick to the same ones, of course she still has her main group of friends that she can trust.

  This is the year I have definitely seen her grow up and I am not going to lie it's a little bit scary. I'm not at the point yet where she's into boys luckily but she's definitely at the stage of her changing temper. All I can do is be there to support her at the moment.

Other things I am realising at the moment is at school she's a little bit behind in English, but is doing fantastically in science and maths. I think she's getting a little upset sometimes with English, but every time I try and help her at home she tries not to do it. I have learnt one way to get her reading though and that is her reading to one of her teddy bears, well I sit in the kitchen trying to overhear it. 

I wish for Little Miss P To jump out of her comfort zone a bit more, and when she's enjoying things to actually look like she is enjoying them (she gets this from her dad), to have fun and be confident and don't take anything to heart if someone puts you down. You will always have your family around to support you, hold your hand and give you a big hug.

I think the next year will bring her out of her comfort zone, well I hope it does anyway.

I can't wait to see her grown up but I'm also a little upset that she's not my baby any more and I have to let go of the reins a little bit more.

Marie Antoinette - Film Review

This film review is all about the film Marie Antoinette. I loved this film when I was about 20 years old, it stars Kirsten Dunst and it's all about her life. I was bored the other day so I thought I would re-watch it and I still enjoyed it, just not as much as I did when I was in my 20s. 

This film is definitely a chick flick, it's all about Marie Antoinette when she became the Queen of France. She was very young and she was betrothed to King Louis XVI at the age of 14. It brings to life a new a interpretation of the teenage queen, she is a very beautiful but naive queen and enters the French courts, which have a lot of conspiracy and lots of scandal. Without any guidance she turns into a young girl rebel and she is known as the most misunderstood French monarch.

I have to say my favourite bit in the movie is when they're trying on all the dresses, make up and different hairstyles. Outfits of that time were absolutely amazing. It's the famous scene where she says "Let them eat cake" and in that scene they have lots of different cakes and macaroons there. It's just a very bright, colourful and fun part of the film.

Honestly I think this film is definitely designed for the teenage to 20s audience, but I did still enjoy it. 

As I used to promote my daughter's vlog I will be doing that again for her so this week's one is when we went to see Taylor Swift...

It's that time of year again when we have to look for teachers' gifts. I don't like doing the normal things for people but I like chocolate and flowers. I think they must go through lots of chocolate and flowers as you just see everyone bringing them in. I like something slightly different, not completely out there as I would hope the teachers like it, and it's actually kind of easy to buy for a woman teacher, but for a man teacher it's really hard. So I thought I'd give you some ideas for both women and men teachers, that are not just flowers or chocolate's.

 First, for a woman teacher...
Stationery, everyone loves a bit of stationery. A lovely pen, notepad or to do lists. You can buy them from pretty much anywhere depending on your budget. If you're after something cheap you go to the pound shop and pick up some lovely things or if you have a bit more money places like Clintons or W H Smith, they always have a lovely stationery section. 

Beauty products, you need to know the teacher for this one and that you think they have helped your kid out a lot. A nice bottle of perfume if you know what make they use, or a lovely smelling bubble bath and candles.
Now for the men...
To tell you the truth I actually don't know what's best to get men teachers as Little Miss P has never had one, but if she ever gets one this is what I will get them. The first one would be homemade brownies, or some sort of traybake. Or perhaps a really nice tie.

Alcohol as most men drink alcohol, so I think this one is a safe bet. But not wine, maybe a spirit. Or a few flavoured beers.

Yep that is pretty much all I've got for the men teachers, sorry. 

But most of all when you go and buy their presents just try think about how you would feel if you got it and if you would like it.

Disney Wishlist

I have seen this in a YouTube video and I am thinking about doing it on my Disney YouTube channel, Parkers Do Disney. But this also works well with a blog post, so here  I am. I will only keep it to five things on the Disney wishlist and keep it to Disney World things only. 
As I always do, I will start with number 5.

5) Go on a shopping spree. I know this will be extremely dangerous and very bad for our bank account, but it would so much fun and all the things would look so good in our house and on me, mainly the bags hanging off my shoulder. They have so many nice bags in the shops. 

4) Get a group photo with all the Disney Princesses together with you in the middle. I don't think I have ever seen a photo like this but how amazing would it be to get. My daughter would really like this to happen too.

3) Go to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. It would be amazing to see all the villains out and about as you don't normally get to see them any other time of the year. And to do trick or treating in the Disney parks.

2) Stay in every Disney hotel from the value ones to the top ones where it would cost an arm and a leg to stay there. So far I have stayed in two. First trip was Caribbean Beach resort and our last trip was Port Orleans Riverside. Both have been very nice and I would stay in them again. 

1) Own a house on Disney Property. You can now buy your own house on Disney property and the place is called Golden Oak. We went past this place every single day from our hotel to one of the parks. The houses cost between $2-3 million, but they all look amazing. As you're on Disney property it will only take you a few minutes to get to the parks. I know this one will probably never happen but a girl can dream.

I lost it for a bit

So over the month of February and March I think I've lost the idea of doing the blogs and YouTube, even though at the beginning of the year I said I'm going to do it every single week and I just haven't. I don't know why, I just seem to have lost the enthusiasm of doing it. But now I've had a great week away with my family in Disney World Orlando and I am back to feeling energised and motivated to do it! So although I failed the first three months of the year I'm back. I'm planning not to work my arse off on this though, I actually just do this for pleasure and I have missed doing it.

    It was nice taking those two months off, as you can see from the last week I've just uploaded some January ones that I did and just didn't upload. 

  I have a few plans for my blog which I am pretty excited about, but most of the plans won't be done till next year now. 

I will be posting similar contents, I'm also hoping to be posting more Disney things as I'm a big Disney fan. Also day-to-day life and everything else in between. My aim is to still put to blog post up a week, but there will definitely be one a week and that will always be a Thursday. 

  Let's see if can now continue the rest of this year how I plan to.
