February Lookover

 3rd of February - Not the best start to the month but I can't really go into it, something annoyed me and it's made me look at some things in a different way to what I used to. As I explained to my daughter I am the zebra and not the lion.
Everything else is going great though, my eBay was good last month where I made £91 profit without doing that much work on it. I would love to make about £300 on it, but that will take a lot more work. I will work on it a bit at time.

9th of February - Well I have to say it has got better. eBay is on a bit of a go slow but I think that's because I don't have much fabric at the moment, Hopefully that will change in March when more comes in. Work is OK, not much to say about that really other than it's really cold out there at the moment. We have even had a bit of snow which is a little nice but it's just falling and not settling although it may do tonight. If it does a lot school might just be cancelled tomorrow. If it does then the holiday can start early hehe. I am a little behind on my blog post and my YouTube, I just hope I will get back to it soon.


13th of February - Today has been the first day of Little Miss P's week off school and we have had a lazy day. We have been doing a few things but only things that needed doing around the house like the washing and cleaning out the bathroom cupboard because that was absolutely disgusting. I've also had to pop to the postbox to post an eBay parcel and Little Miss P went on her skateboard and she loved it. Also I made a chocolate chip and vanilla cake that goes lovely with a cup of tea. Tomorrow we are going to Bounce Extreme or Jump Extreme in Barking and it's the first time I am going and can't wait. I'm not sure who's more excited, me or Little Miss P.

The rest of this month will be in another blog post.

Love
Mrs P

New Shoes

I get through lots of shoes and boots. I think that's because I work on my feet and maybe my feet are just very toxic, which everyone's are, it is just that I go through lots of shoes.

I get all my shoes from Primark so that's probably why I get through them as they are not as well made as some could be.  All three of these shoes are from that place Primark, The first pair are these bad boys they have very thick soles and are really comfortable, keeping my feet very warm standing in the playground all lunch time. I can even wear thick socks with them and for me that's important on these very cold days. They are also very easy to wipe clean when I have been on the mud.

Now onto my Trainers, I really want to go for more walks and maybe for a little jog if I pluck up the courage to go and do that on my own or with other people. The thing about these Trainers is the bottom of them they are a really funny material. I am not sure what it's called but it has Memory Foam in it. I love the grey colour of them with the bright green inside. I just hope they last.

These I had to get as they remind of a set of shoes I have and I love the glitter on them, I will wear these more in the spring as I don't really want to mess them up.  I may have to get myself another pair just I case I do,  These shoes were £10 and they seemed to only have a few more in stock, When we went in Primark it looked like they were getting a lot of new stock out as well,

January Lookover

It's the start of 2017 and it has got very cold.

 It is only 6th January today and so far so good, I've had two days at work and although I was feeling I didn't really fancy going back it was okay really, other than getting freezing cold feet. Mr P is still off work so it's a bit random him being home and me having to go out to work. We brought in the New Year at home watching a TV programme in bed and Little Miss P fell asleep by 11:00, but we were out the night before in a lovely hotel room. It was very late and so I called it my New Year... I just had it a day early.

9th January - We went to Woodford panto like we have been doing for the past five years and this year was Beauty and the Beast. Little Miss P loved it more this year due to some of the girls in it being from her dance school and she loved watching them. As I do every year I will be doing a review on it (if I haven't done so already). Also I went back to my mum's house and had a lovely roast dinner.

14th January - Not much else has been going on other than going back to work/school, dancing and just back to normal. We have had some snow the other but it was all ice in the morning and couldn't make any snowmen but due to the ice I did get to get Little Miss P from school a tiny bit early. eBay is going well so far and I have sold something every week so far so I really hope that will keep going.

19th - Last night we booked Little Miss P's first music exam, it's her singing prep test. It's not really an exam it is just putting them in an exam situation and see how they cope so that they know what to expect when they do their first Grade One exam. I think she's a little bit nervous but excited at the same time.

It's now the last day of January and it's be fun. Work has been very cold and I have had to wrap up warm, but the last few days wow, I felt like crying because my face was so cold. I can't wait to see what February will bring.

Love my Blog


I love my little blog. I have been doing it for the past seven years and I love it, I do it as a hobby and I will always love doing it as my hobby. I love just being able to sit down and get my thoughts on paper. 


Also there are some very random blog posts that I have done in the past. I love being able to look back on the past seven years and see what I've got up to in a certain month. 

I really want to do some more crafty posts, Disney posts, maybe some posts about what I buy from Etsy and clothing. Can't really do posts about my work as I work in a school and it will be about the kids and I can't do that.

I really enjoy writing film reviews and TV show reviews so I will be doing more of them as well. I would love to be able to make more money from it, so I will slowly be trying to do that throughout the year. And if I get to do that I will be of course doing Blog posts about it to keep everyone up-to-date with how it's working out.

Love

Under the Dome



A few months ago we got Amazon Prime and we wanted to start watching a TV series in the evenings just to chillout to. There are so many to pick from but we chose Under the Dome and I have to say it's a little bit of a mess that TV show. Don't get me wrong I actually really enjoy, it but you have to think about what's going on in it.

So far this is what I have learnt. The town called Chesters Mill has magically got a dome appear around it and they are all stuck inside. Every time they touch it they get a slight electric shock; they have tried punching it, throwing things at it, anything to get out, but nothing is working. It starts to go into each character a bit more throughout the series and of course some of the characters die, most of the time it's kind of a gruesome way. There are a few main characters and I would say Barbie is the main one with Julia, Big Jim, Norrie, Joe and Junior. It's mainly around them. I don't want to say too much as I don't want to give anything away.

So the time has come for aliens, yes aliens. I have to say I didn't think it would be an alien type of program but it is, so if you're into the alien thing it's definitely a watch for you. It is based all on an egg that produces pink falling stars and the world ending so they think that The Dome is there to protect them. But it isn't all it seems.

Not really saying much more as I've given away some of the plots already but I still have a few episodes to watch so I still don't know how it ends. I just hope Norrie, Joe and Julia survive until the end because they are my favourite characters.

Woodford Pantomime


We go to the Woodford Panto every year (well for the last five years we have anyway). It's not too far away from us and it's run just by a little drama group, but every year it is fantastic. This year they did Beauty and the Beast which is a Disney film that I absolutely love. Because it is a Panto they do change it in places so it's not exactly like the film and obviously don't have the film music in it due to copyright issues. But they did do it justice. I think it helps that this year Little Miss P's friends from her dance school were in it and they were all fantastic. They were mainly the dancers and background singers. I hope they will do it in next year because they did do great in it and it's lovely to see Little Miss P's face watching her friends in excitement.

Of course the rest of the cast were fantastic too, including my sister's friend that she works with, who is also in the play. He has been in the play for the last five years and maybe longer. This year he played one of the main characters called Felix, a pink poodle. I have to say he played the character very well and he was very funny mainly getting all the laughs. Little Miss P got to go up on stage again and she loved it, she got to go up with Master Hill (her cousin). Not to sure about next year, she might be too old to go up.

Of course I will be going again next year with Little Miss P and the rest of my family.

Love

Film Review - We're the Millers


This film is based on a veteran pot dealer that creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S from Mexico. It starts off with David (played by Jason Sudeikis) asking to get some weed from Mexico, but to do this he has to create a family to get through the border of Mexico and then back into the U.S without being detected. So he gets Rose (Jennifer Aniston) to play the Mum, Casey (Emma Roberts) and Kenny (Will Poulter) to play their children. They are a very mixed bunch.

This film is very funny and has a lots of comical moments. They all seem to work well together and you can see that comes across in the film. You don't have to concentrate on this film that much as you can just go back to it and still know what's going on.

I like the actress Jennifer Aniston so that made me enjoy the film more I think, as she did play Rose very well.

I would I watch this film again and I'm pretty sure I would still enjoy it.

Love
Mrs P
