Veg or not to Veg

This year we are looking into doing our own vegetable Garden and we have a little plot at the back of our garden. Last year we set it up for this year to do exactly that, but the truth be told I don't have a clue where to start and neither does the other half.

I think the first thing that we need to do is to read up on it and see what the easy thing to grow are. We have got a book that we bought to try and help us called Made at Home by Dick & James Strawbridge (Vegetables). It has a section on preparing to grow vegetables in it.

It has it down to the Tools and Equipment that we will need to help us do it, to what sort of soil we will need and pest control. We will 100% need that as we have lots of cats coming into our garden.

Having a look through the book it even has each section put into seasons like Spring, what the best to plant are and great Spring tasks. I have started to read the book as I write this and some of the tasks are like sterilize your pot and a great thing to plant in Spring are the likes of Peas and Purple sprouting Broccoli. The Purple Broccoli seems a bit weird but we will give it a go.

I will keep you up to date on our Green life and show you if we end up growing anything. We can't even keep flowers alive so this may not go to plan.

Wish us luck.

Our New Suitcases

For one night suitcases have been a pain in my ass. We are going on holiday this year and I wanted to get the suitcases sorted as they're on sale at the moment, And they were going back up in price that night. So I really wanted to get them sorted just to stick up in the loft for when we need them. But the other half and I were butting heads with it, I was saying we should get the larger ones and he said no, medium-sized ones. In the end I gave in to let him have medium-sized ones. So we ended up with two medium size suitcases and I already have a smaller size suitcase so that will be Little Miss P's one. We also have two cabin size suitcases that will come on the plane with us, this is more for clothes in case our luggage gets lost, just so we have a spare set. As well I will also put a fleece in there for the plane for Little Miss P.

Ordered the suitcases with half an hour left before the offer ran out, it may even have been 10 minutes before the offer ran out. I'm glad we got them; my one is the pink one and Mr P's one is the teal colour. They are lightweight and easy to move with four wheels at the bottom. So hopefully when we get to the airport it will be easier keeping an eye on Little Miss P and her suitcase. The suitcases seem to have plenty of room in them. They will be full when we go but the whole reason why we got two cabin suitcases was to bring back the things we buy on holiday. Well at least that's the plan.

When we ordered them Tesco said that would be able to pick them up in our local store in two days' time, perfect. So Mr P and I went down to get them two evenings later, we even got the email saying they were in and I got all excited. But they couldn't find them and the Manager said they hadn't turned up yet and would be there by 10 o'clock the next day. We just left as I wasn't in the mood to argue with them but the next day I did ring up Tesco Direct and spoke to them. They said they got delivered yesterday at 9 AM in the morning. So before Mr P went to get them I went down there and asked if they were in, even though I wasn't picking them up there and then. They said yes but I wanted them to show me so I got them to show me the suitcases and then said to them I'm not getting them now, my husband is coming to get them later. I don't think the man was happy with me about that but I wanted to make sure before Mr P got in his car to get them.

The thing I didn't like about it was that it's such a small store, how could they lose the big boxes of suitcases. I think the Manager that night wasn't in the mood for looking for them, but the next night the guy was a completely different person... possibly because he had a little bit of a telling off by head office.

But we've got them now and they're in good condition and so far nothing else has happened. I got my product in the end, I just hope they fit all the clothing and don't go overweight as I don't fancy paying any extra luggage allowance.

I am obsessed

Have I ever told you that I am obsessed with Disney and that I stalk some Disney dedicated Instagram pages and some Facebook pages as well as some people's YouTube channels. Some people may think it's sad but I love it and it gives a feeling of getting me to Disney to find the magic. I haven't really put many blog posts up about this but I am thinking I would like to as I am slowly moving away from talking about my daughter all the time as she getting older and has her own blog now.

I went to Disney World for the first time when I was 16 years old for my stepdad's 50th Birthday, more about this detail in a blog coming soon. And I have been to Disneyland Paris about three times, once when Little Miss P was about 4 years old, once at Christmas time when we were there for Christmas day, and the last time we went there was for my Mum's 50th birthday just last year.

I am not too sure why I love Disney so much, is it because I am still a kid inside, is it because I still believe in the magic, or is it both of them? I am not 100% sure why but now I have told you expect a lot more Disney posts on this Blog and over on my YouTube channel.

January 2016

January is about the new year's resolutions or as I like to call them goals because they seem more fun that way. I set myself goals for the year then I like to break them down into months. For me personally it just works out better that way and it works for the longer time goals in a few years time, not just a year.

So did I to do my January goals?
Yes all except one of them. I didn't get to finish Little Miss P's 'Do you want to build a snowman' video as my baby camera went to be fixed and I have just got it back. But the rest of them I did, woohoo.

Did I make the most of January?
I am not sure if I did, I think I could have done more, well I know I could have.

What happened in January?
Well January was just getting back into a routine after Christmas and starting to get things sorted for the holiday.

What would I change about January?
Nothing as it was ok, nothing fantastic happened and nothing bad happened. 

My Aim for February 

My aim for February is to carry on having fun, carry on helping Little Miss P with her with school work and dancing. For me just carry on with my little blog and stay ahead of it. I like the way my life is going at the moment so I would like to keep it this way for a bit until at least after our Holiday.

Young Victoria - Review

I love watching films and before Christmas Mr P signed up to Amazon Prime just so we could get a present in time for Christmas, and you get the first month free. With getting the delivery the next day also you get Amazon Prime TV where you can watch TV shows and films for free. I love this just due to the fact that I said I love films. So far I've watched about five different films on it so here is my first review on the first film that I watched.

Young Victoria

Obviously from the title it's all about Queen Victoria but when she was younger some of it is even before she was queen.

Young Victoria was the only surviving heir of several sons of George III, two of her uncles, George IV (and his brother William IV) had preceded her as monarch. Unfortunately for Victoria her father, the Duke of Kent, died very early and her mother, the Duchess, fell under the spell of a conman in the shape of 
a conman . Sensing the prospect of power, the two of them raised Victoria in a repressive background at Kensington Palace, dubbing their tyrannical regime "The Kensington System".

Queen Victoria is played by Emily Blunt and I think she plays her so well.  I love this story as it is a true love story of Victoria and Albert. Albert ended up helping her run the country by bringing in the arts a lot more.

I really liked this film and wouldn't mind watching it again.

I have just found Audible books, oh my I have been missing out, I love it. I thought I would give it a try last month and the first book I got was #girlboss by Sophia Amoruso. It's about the person who created the brand nasty girl and how she came round to doing it. I don't want to tell you the whole story because that's for you to find out when you read it yourself.

It's about how she started it and what made her do it. It's a very inspirational story by her starting out as the lowest of the low and making a multi million pound company with no help from the banks and all with her own money. I am a little bit of a sucker for these types of stories but that just gets me motivated to do the things I want to do to live my life. It's great to listen to first thing in the morning to get you up and going and ready for the day.

Before reading this book I have to say I've never heard of nasty  girls, it actually sounds like it might be a porn website to me but now reading it obviously I have looked up the website online and her website looks fantastic. It is very different to most of the websites I look at. She has put her own style on to it and that's another reason why I love it.

So if you fancy an inspirational book to listen to, I would recommend it.

New Boots

As I work in a school I am always on my feet and I must have asbestos feet as I go thought boots and shoes like anything. So it was that time again where I had to go shopping for some new ones. 

I didn't have time to go round the shops and have a look but I did have time to look around online. I wanted something that will last the rest of winter and maybe a bit of next winter. I looked in a few places but Tesco came up with a pair that I liked the look of.

So I got them and had them delivered to my local store so that I could pick them up when I wanted. That's what I love about getting things from Tesco, I can pick them up when I want from where I want.
So here are my new babies, F&F Faux Suede Crepe Sole Boots. They are £25 and they look so comfy and I have to say they are. Normally I  have to break in boots but these ones I didn't, which I am glad about as I wore them as soon as I got home, to go to work in them.

As you can see, they have two buckles on the side just for decoration, but I like a bit of decoration on my shoes just to jazz them up a bit. It's only been a day of wearing them and I am very happy with them so far. They have already got dirty but that's because someone stepped on my foot, I just have to rub them down and they will be OK.
