Goodbye till next year

Well this is the last blog post of 2013 and what an amazing year it has been,very busy but alot of great things have happened,thank you to you all for reading and i look forward to getting back to blogging next year,Also thank you to everyone i got to work with this year and look forward to working with you all again.


So from my family to you and yours HAPPY NEW YEAR




Happy Friday :-)

How was your Christmas?

Ours was very eventful what with weather and other things going on that ended up not being the greatest of Christmas's but we made the most of it and the kiddies loved all their toys and presents now they are with their grandparents till the new year :-).

One of my fav presents this year from hubby was my new laptop table its one you can move and twist so that you can even lay in bed and use the laptop with out having to keep it on your lap it keeps hold of it so you can position the laptop however you want so now i no longer have to sit at the same desk on the same annoying chair lol,also it will be great in the summer to take it outside.

 So not long until the New Year and another few days off work for some people to be honest what is the point in going back to work on a Friday to leave again and not come back for nearly a week.so now time to get back on track and start sorting this Blog out.

Have a great day and happy Friday

December is so busy Happy Christmas

Hey everyone sorry i have not been here for a while there is so much going on here i will be back in the new year to start afresh just to much going on at the moment to be able to sit and do anything here so lots of updates once Christmas is out of the way,we have a packed house not managed to do much of the advent comps only twitter at the moment because i can do it on my phone where ever i am lol.

Weather is really windy and bad lots of rain hope you are all staying safe.

Happy Christmas to you all thanks for all your support and sticking with my blog over the last year bigger and better to come next year :-)


 

How are you all

How is everyone today?

I am mega tired woke up to things crashing around at 5am and did not sleep since the wheelie bins flew away and tipped rubbish everywhere so thats not going to be fun to clean up,the fence is half gone and i nearly blew away walking the dogs lol.

I really want to get some work done but i feel really i should be going back to sleep kiddies slept through it and are now at school since it is only a short walk from the house,Luckily we still have our power unlike a lot of houses further up north.

Well i think i am ust going to chill out for a bit no point trying to clean up as the wind is still blowing,to everyone that is experiencing this and worse stay safe :-)

Have a great day

Online Takeaway Ordering Thanks To hungryhouse






Friday Nights are always just myself and my husband so we tend to watch movies have a drink etc we love to have a takeaway but do not enjoy having to go out and sit in the takeaway waiting on an order and then to bring it back home,Or there is the problem of what we want to eat who delivers and if we even have any of the menus most of the ones i get through the door are binned (to avoid temptation lol)Well that has all changed thanks to the amazing hungryhouse 


With more than 10,000 restaurants hungryhouse, ordering food delivery from your local takeaway has never been easier. From Birmingham to Glasgow,London to Manchester, hungryhouse has partnered with the finest takeaway restaurants from across Britain to ensure that with a simple postcode search you can start ordering delicious takeaway in minutes.


When i was offered a chance to review them i was not going to say no how nice to just be able to order online and not have to do any cooking.

Using the platform  is very simple; just pop in your postcode and you will be shown all the restaurants that serve where you live. You can sort them in order of ratings, which is what I did. I enjoy reading other customers reviews, and I liked being able to select who I wanted to order from based on those opinions
Using hungryhouse  is so simple you put in your postcode and up comes a list of all the restaurants you can order from in your area.
You can list them in order of reviews also which i like to be able to read as there was a place we had been wanting to try but people had said some not good things about them so we avoided them.

Trash Pack Series 5 Has Landed

We were sent the Trash pack series 5 for little man to have a play with.

Each one has its own toilet yes Trashies In Toilets if you thought dustbins were bad enough well it just got a bit more disgusting nauseating yellow toilets for that matter,

Here are the ones we were sent i had to take pics before i showed them to little man as now he will not let me near them lol,he already has some from series 4 but he says he likes these better.

With over 100 new characters to collect and trade, kids will have endless amounts of filthy fun.Each Character is made from soft rubber.

Also these would be a great stocking filler this Christmas for kiddies aged 5 and over and for £4.99 the price is very affordable for pocket money gifts.

Check out the Flair website HERE for more info

*We received the above product for the purposes of this review all thoughts and opinions are my own*

Taking Shape Plus Size Clothing Review

After seeing this company on another lovely Bloggers blog Thank you Sarah you can check out her great blog Here   I had to go to Their website and find out more.



Plus size fashion retailer  Taking Shape Is an Australian Plus size clothing brand sizes 14-26
Taking Shape has arrived in the UK with the motto ‘Celebrate Your Curves’ to serve the women’s plus-size clothing market. Taking Shape is currently launching a store a week on UK high streets and have now launched online.

The retailer offers UK women clothing that is fashionable, has personality and flatters; a fun, relaxed and friendly shopping experience; and real advice from in-store stylists on how to dress for your size.

And for once instead of companies putting plus sizes on a kinda after thought Taking Shape is changing that concentrating on plus sizes alone which i think is great.Also a lot of plus size clothing is not that nice well not for my kind of taste anyway lol,when i looked through their website they have so many outstanding clothing pieces i could not choose what i like the most.


There is 3 brands under the website which are ts, eplisse and virtuelle with a great range for all different occasions i can only tell you to take a look for yourself.

Remember Remember The Fifth Of November

So Halloween has gone and Today is the Fifth Of November and for us British that means Guy Fawkes/Bonfire night,Have you got your Guy Fawkes ready for the top of your bonfire?

 Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on 5 November, primarily in Great Britain. Its history begins with the events of 5 November 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.


Some of the Bonfire night rhymes 

Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, guy, t'was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England's overthrow.

By God's mercy he was catch'd
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.

And what shall we do with him?
Burn him!



Rumour, rumour, pump and derry,
Prick his heart and burn his body,
And send his soul to Purgatory.

(Usually sung by children around the burning bonfire with the guy on top)


Ok so there is actually quite a few.

Anyway if you are celebrating remember to keep yourselves safe and also your pets have a great time and enjoy the fun,it will deffo be lovely to have a nice big bonfire tonight it is so cold and i can not wait to see the fireworks though i hate the noise (earplug time lol) round here fireworks have been going off for about a week and that kind of spoils it because you are already bored of them by the time today comes around.
