I have since been on the phone to my brother who is trying to put a puzzle together and keeps swearing and telling me i am the worst sister lol Well i am going to watch this film called knocked up and try and sleep hopefully have a longer blog tomorrow night everyone

Christmas Day

So, today was Christmas Day which I spent with my mum, dad, brothers Marc and Jeff my niece and sis in law had a nice Christmas which was lovely. I got some fantastic presents necklace, dressing gown and McDonalds teddies all from my other half

I love all the presents I have had so far. We having another Christmas Day when he gets back. The McDonald’s teddies are what they release each year to raise money for their charity which you can find out more about on their website.

Which I love and at the moment I am wearing the PJs and still debating if I am going to eat and drink any of it but I do love butterbeer from Harry Potter studios. Oh, and they did get me a selection box but I ate it before I could even post a picture.

Mum made a lovely Christmas dinner but didn’t make me any pudding how naughty was she? But I also felt a little sick after my starter and main. I do wish I got more photos. I also helped my niece win at go fish by taking a photo of my mum’s cards and WhatsApp her the picture. Mum was not happy when she found out lol. Well i hope you all had a lovely day and would like to thank everyone for the gifts even if I haven’t listed them here.

Christmas Eve

So, it’s the night before Christmas and all was quiet all the sounds you could hear was the sweet sounds of cockatiels sleeping. Well that is what I was hoping for but they have decided tonight they want to chirp. I am also talking to my brother on the phone thinking I should really be going to sleep as I am up early ready to go to my mums to spend Christmas Day with her and my dad and who ever else turns up and I also get to huge Bissell the dog

So, what ever you doing tomorrow have a nice day and don’t drink too much and I will have a blog up tomorrow evening night everyone

Nearly Christmas

So, it’s the night before Christmas Eve where most people are tucked up in bed or are worrying if everything is ready for Christmas Day. While I am laying here waiting for my niece to fall to sleep so, I can go to sleep as I am feeling ill. Even though I am getting distracted by the film Arthur Christmas i forgot how good this film was i not seen it in so long.

Tomorrow I am dropping my niece at my mums ready for her mum to pick her up from there I am not sure if I am staying for a little while or going to head home and get my housework done. Well hopefully I am back to normal tomorrow. I am going to go and try and sleep if I don’t get a post up Merry Christmas everyone

Tired and fed up

We are now in December and it’s soo cold. All I am wanting to do at the moment is to get snuggled up under my cover and watch films but it’s such a busy time of the year. Christmas Day is only 2 weeks away and I bet not everyone has finished their Christmas shopping or even thought about it? I have finished but not the wrapping but that will not take that long at all. I think of the rush of getting things done this month is why i feel so tired and fed up as nothing seems to stop. I am hoping it snows like the weather man keeps promising but i do know if that would happen.

In a couple of weeks i am doing a q&a which i will be filming to go on YouTube but i will also post the video on to here so, you can all see it. Its going to be hard for me as its going to be my first ever video and got to actually do some editing. I do read through my blogs as well to make sure there are no mistakes but no one can get everything right first time. So, if you want your question to be answered please leave a comment below and you question maybe used. I will not be making it a daily thing but may do it when i go on days out and stuff so, you can come along with me. It will also help me when trying to remember what i did as i get so forgetful. Any way i better get some sleep got a busy day tomorrow chat to you all soon x

Should you buy a google home?

Recently I got my partner a Google home. Which should have been put up for Christmas but we decided to test it out. the one we have now is the third one we have been given as the first one came registered to someone else who hadn’t cleared their details off and the 2nd one which was a replacement for the 1st one was given already open but the 3rd one came just fine so, we kept that one.

The Google home didn’t take much to set up all you need is a mobile phone or computer not sure how you set it up on the computer as we did it all by our mobile phones. On the mobile you download an app called Google Home which has a step by step guide to setting the Google Home up you will also need a Google account. We also got a chrome cast which you also use Google Home to set up that as well. When using Google home you just have to say hay Google and it wakes to listen to you.

So, far we have used it to beam Netflix to the TV so, to get that to work we say hey Google play big bang theory on Netflix which it says playing big bang theory on Netflix and it straight away beams it to the chrome cast. The only issue we have had so far is trying to get it to play a certain playlist on Spotify. It plays it best if your playlist is named something that no one else would think off so, it doesn’t try loading theirs. If you ask it will tell you your local weather. It can also look at your calendar and add to it. We have also used it to set alarms to remind us to do things. You can get it to do a shopping list for you but we have not done this of yet.

The chrome cast is used to beam things like YouTube and things like that to the TV. Google home does have some issues recognising what you say but that is the same as Siri. I am hoping over time it starts to understand more. We have asked it a lot of questions and have got some funny answers so, go and give it a try.

I would rate this product 8/10 and would recommend it. If you would like any more information please leave a comment below

Whitley Bay

I recently stayed at Whitley bay holiday park which I had been dreading since I read the reviews on facebook and trip advisor they all said this park was dirty the caravans had mould and was cold. They also said that the club house had no beer in at all but when I arrived the staff was friendly they showed me on a map how to get to my caravan which is not far from any of the amusements on site. The caravan was clean and tidy, beds were made so, all i needed to do was unpack the only issue I had was that there was a pressure issue with boiler so, had no hot water but they were so, quick to come and sort. Instead of rushing off the first day to do the shopping so, we used the park shop which was a little bit more expensive but, it did beat driving out to find the nearest supermarket. We decided to stay in so, i did some colouring and had an early night.

I am now going to sum up the holiday as its been a two weeks since i been home and i can not remember what i did each day but we did go on the bus 3 times once to Whitley bay town centre which didn’t have much but was a good walk round, the longest trip was to Newcastle town centre which took a while to get to but when we got there we went round town centre which was huge and I also found a massive wool shop which i got a pattern book out of and the last pace we went to Blyth which was a very small town but it was a day late. We came home a day earlier which was good as meant I could sort everything i needed to do before everything got busy.

One thing i learnt is don’t always listen to the reviews as they can be totally wrong so, even if the reviews are rubbish check it. Out yourself because you could just be as surprised as we were.

Thanks for readi..
