Blast from the Past

Hello and welcome to my first Blog Hop. This blog hop is all about those old blog posts that you write. It could have been a week or three years ago, or even 10 years ago as long as you're proud of them. I feel like I have written some great blog posts but as they were when I first started, not many people got to see them. So now it's time to show them off. All I ask you to do is follow me on here and go around and read other people's posts. And to only show off one of your posts at a time and I will try to do this every week for you. Share the love to your fellow bloggers, go over and say hi. You never know, you may even make a new friend and find some other great blogs to read and to give you some inspiration.

Talent #205

Hi everyone, 

Today's photo gallery is all about Talent, Well I have to say I don't have a talent, well not one that I know of. Maybe my Talent is looking after my daughter and making things fun and enjoyable for her, as my life is all about her.

I just asked my hubby what my talent is and he said being fun... can that be a talent? Well, it's going to have to do, as I really can't think of anything else.

Well I enjoy taking photos, although I wouldn't really say it's a talent, it's just that I enjoy doing it.

Well that's all I have on this really. I have to say I found this one hard this week.

A day of bargains

I am writing this on 15th October sitting in front of the TV, but this won't be up until maybe next Monday.

Today was just any normal day. I had my Tesco online shop coming and that came, everything was normal. After I put my shopping away I made myself a cup of tea, put my feet up, went on facebook and then the UK Extreme Couponing and Freebies post came up.
'Argos glitch 2 toys for £30 offer going into basket at £15' was on there so I first ordered a gift for Mr P for Xmas (it's only a small and funny gift) and I got an Air Storm Huntress Z Curve Bow for Little Miss P. She's seen it somewhere but I don't have a clue where, I think it'll be for her birthday though so I will put it away.

I then went back on to see if the offer was still up and it was, so I had a look and got two more things  for Little Miss P's birthday. I will give them to my mum to buy off me.

I also popped to my little Tesco to pick up my free pizzas. I picked up two of them and had a £1 over so I got some milk and I didn't have to pay anything!... I was like oh yeah, I did good, lol. I know it's only a small one but I am so proud of it and I will be keeping this receipt just because it was all free. It's ok, I know I am sad.

That's it for today, see you all soon.

October savings so far

Hello everyone, hope you're all enjoying this October so far.
Well on the saving front we've been ok, only spending what we need to and we have got a few things that we didn't need. We've got a few Christmas pressies for people, well for Mr P's Mum and Dad and his sister's gift. We have decided to get family gifts instead of one each as that would save us money. My mum's gift is sorted, Little Miss P's main one is sorted and my nieces and nephews are all sorted. I will do a different post for all the Christmas gifts I have so far.

I have just had to buy little Miss P new Dance Tap dance shoes for £7. They are second hand ones and I have given her school her old pair to sell on. As they are in really good condition they are selling them for £10, so I hope someone will buy them soon.

That's it for now guys, I will be having a more up-to-date one soon.

Media Update

Hello, how are you all.

This is just a quick post to tell you all about my media things. Little Miss P and I now have two separate youtube channels. I don't have anything on mine yet, that will be coming in the next few weeks, but Little Miss P's is going really well and she loves doing it, just having fun and having a chat to the camera. She's going to start doing cooking ones and how-to ones.

She's up to 39 at the moment and is hoping to get to 50 by next year, bless her. I know some people will be thinking it's me making her do it, but I have to say that my little girl can be quite demanding... when she wants to do something she will go and do it.

So if you can show you support that would be great by going over to her youtube channel and subscribing and leaving her a comment... she would love it!

Hope everyone has a lovely day.

Autumn - Photo Gallery 204

Hello my lovelies. I haven't done a Photo Gallery lately, so sorry about that, but I saw this week was an Autumn one and I love Autumn so I had to take one and put in it.

I have picked this photo as we love going for walks any time of year but in the Autumn it's lovely  due the the colour of the trees turning a deep red before they fall off. The sun shining through the trees created a lovely silhouette. 

Thanks for popping by... what do you like about Autumn?

That time we bought a House

It was about 7 years ago that we got into our house. We bought it off Mr P's sister who had it on the market as they were moving to Devon. So we took the plunge and made them an offer and they accepted it, so it went though as a private sale and we didn't have to pay the estate agent fees. So that saved a bit of money for us.

It's a sweet little house, well it's not exactly little it's a three bedroom house with a nice size garden that we are trying to do up at the moment. Thinking about it I was a little sad that we didn't get to look at other houses even though we would have still picked this one.

Our house is on a little green, so it's not busy. I know my neighbours on both sides of me and I know a few other people on our green too. It's really nice as the kids can play out together on our road, or even go and have a cup of tea at the neighbour's house for a chat while the kids play together.

I do love my green and my little house but the area is not the best. It doesn't have the best school and lots of the kids are trying to be little thugs. But I am guessing most parts of the UK have this so you have got to make the best of what you got and that's what I am going to do. There is no point moaning about it, just get on with it and make the most of it.

That's my little start of telling you about my house. I will be be doing a blog post per week with a little on our plans and what's in each room etc., so keep an eye out for that.

Here is a little day in the life... hope you enjoy watching it x

Aqua Sana

Hello my lovelies, I hope you're all doing OK.

It's my cousin's 21st birthday, so a few of us are at the Aqua Sana at Woburn Forest Center Parces.

Well it's Saturday 27th September and I am sitting in the Aqua Sana at Woburn Center Parces. It's a really big spa, I think it must be the biggest out of them all. It's on two floors split into six different small spas... you have Fire & Ice, Blossom, Herbal, Sensory, Mineral and Gemstone & Salt.

Most of the sections have a sauna room, steam room and a relax room in it, as we were only there for the day we had to try them all out, so we spent a bit of time in each one, but due it being so big we couldn't spend a nice amount of time in each one.

We got a welcome drink and a little something for breakfast, I picked a hot coco and a chocolate croissant. The staff in the Vitale Cafe bar were really nice and friendly people, all of them were really happy and chatting to you and all the staff in the spa were really nice too.

I enjoyed my spa day very much and trying all the rooms and the pool was lovely even though I found it weird with people looking into the pool that were not spa guests. It was just a little bit weird. But it does look like that they a growing trees maybe to sort out that little problem.

The lunch was so nice. We all had something different and all of us said how nice our food was. Later on in the day we got some cocktails... they were yummy too, very yummy.

I would like to do this spa for the weekend as it was so big. If I do that I could spend more time in each of the rooms.

That's it for my little review. Sorry I didn't take many photos as it was a spa and it wouldn't have been right.

Graze Unboxing

Perfect Portions to the Rescue box

This is a lovely little Graze box. There is only one thing I don't like in it and that's the Garden of England, but the hubby will have that at some point.

Coffee and Walnut Cake
It has chocolate coffee beans, Walnuts, Sponge pieces & Raisins
We had this before and Mr P loved it so I asked them to send it again soon and they did. If you love coffee then this is the one for you,  and it contains only 9g of fat

 Pumpkin & Sunflower Soy Roasted Seeds
 (packed with Essential Nutrients)
I love this and really enjoy it. I like just picking at it while doing a blog post or working on my youtube channel. It has a sweet taste to it.

Coriander & Lime Salsa Fresca with Mint Tortilla chips
This one is ok, I would have it again. I like the Tortilla chips more then the salsa dip but that's just me. I could see Little Miss P enjoying it or putting it in her lunch box.

Garden of England
Baby Strawberries, Apple and Blackcurrants
I am not a great fun of this one and Mr P is not a great fan of the this one either. I have put this in the bin list on the Graze website but if you like dried fruit you will like this one.

October Saving

Hello there! Christmas is coming up and it's time I have to save money, 
to get buying all my family Christmas gifts.

I  have already bought the Christmas cards in the January sale and have a few Xmas gifts already for some of the family and I'm selling a few things on ebay to get some money for the others.

I will try each week to put what I have bought and how much I have saved. Here is my first little coupon shop that I have done. I went into Waitrose on the 28th September and got a few things that I needed / wanted and as always I was looking out for deals on household items like bio liquid etc. Also took a few coupons with me, my free yoomoo and free Little Dish coupon, they had run out of yoomoo though so I couldn't get them but I did pick up my Little Dish ones.

Each coupon was £2.50 off and Waitrose had a offer on them at 2 for £4 so it worked out that I had £1 given back to me, but I got other things on the shop so I covered myself, as I don't think the store would have paid me it back.

I didn't have a coupon for it but I love these pizzas for a quick easy meal when we need them. It's the Dr Oetker pizza, 2 for £5 and you get a code on the back, which gives you two vouchers; one for £1 and the other for £1.50. So I will be going to get them soon and try and get more codes to stock up on the pizzas.

They are the best deals from this shop. Pop over to my youtube soon to see a more detailed video of my shop.

Don't forget we have a lovely little youtube channel x
