Monday Melodies #6

Living with Mr M & Les Enfants


This week we are gonna try something a tad different. Instead of the usual 24hours, I will be keeping the linky open all week!! Some of you might fancy a Tuesday Tune or maybe a Sunday Slow Jam!  Whatever tikkles you bits, you have the whole week to do it :-)

Oh and this week I'm going to be a bit cheeky and put up two songs that I'm feeling because it's my linky and I'm allowed to!! Feel free to do the same if you're as cheeky as me :D

The first song is all about Wii momma madness, free spirited, boogie down, dancehall Queen Kimmi. If you haven't got Just Dance on the Wii then you're missing the FUDGE out!  In fact I'd go all out and say you're a bigger nut job than me. Go get it now!


Second song is by the same group and I love it just as much. Both tunes seem to get the nutty butty side of me out of my shell.  It seems it does the same to Ms Sandra Bullock! Gotta love this lady :-)

 
Come join me for a boogie on Monday Melodies! :-) xx

Monday Melodies #5

Living with Mr M & Les Enfants

Remember this chap?

I got to say I love this guy and his power to mesmerise and take you to that soulful, peaceful space.
I'm gonna refer to him as Ken because me and this fella go way back. Listening to his music reminds me of the late 80's/early 90's. There was a time where my mum had a Kenny G cassett tape in her car on lock! #oldtimes. I miss being a kid and have to remind mine everyday not to wish there life away.


Chill out, sit back, No words.
Enjoy!



Sunday

Today I've actually had some much needed time for myself. Sundays are routine for me and pretty much consists of cooking a good wholesome dinner, ironing the kids School uniform and family time.
It's been a mind draining kind of week, but in the good way. I am slowly but surely changing and I can see, and feel the changes, my life has definitely taken a turn for the better. I have some great, positive people in my life and I thank God for them. We ain't gonna talk about the negative ones right now.

Just gonna throw up a few random pics


Mum teaching kids how to play Mah Jong!

I have missed all my fave linky's this week :( but never mind, definite catch up next week.

Pre-event jitters

It's been a drawn out last couple of weeks and my head has been everywhere but here.  My memory is next to nothing and to be honest my fears of early Dementia are over real! But I can't say I haven't had a good week, just a scatty and busy one.
Our biggest WKYW event yet is tomorrow and I'm overwhelmed with all kinds of different emotions, FEAR being at the top of the list.

I had a good old laugh at myself today. Remembering my first attempt at public speaking for a very small workshop. There was approximately....erm....only 3 people I didn't know there! That didn't stop me shaking like a leaf in a hurricane.  It was ridiculous!

So tomorrow I don't know what I'm gonna be like, but I cheering myself on, Go Kimmi, Go Kimmi, Get Busy, Get Busy! (doing a little pre-celebration jig)
And I'm hoping for God to give me that extra bit of confidence that I desperately need. I keep asking myself what the hell am I really scared of.....
HELLO!!!
  • getting tongue tied
  • talking shit #Miranda moments
  • tripping up
  • repeating myself
  • sounding like an idiot x456
  • forgetting what the hell I'm suppose to be talking about
  • sweating like a piggy
and the list goes on.

However anxious I feel, I am still actually really looking forward to it.
So watch this space and I'll tell you how WELL it went :-)

Monday Melodies #4

Living with Mr M & Les Enfants
 
 
My Monday Melodies song has been heavily on my mind since Friday.
This post is not for the shy and was inspired by a meeting with a lovely lady I had on Friday. I've told you previously that I and 2 other ladies run a business called Women Know Your Worth. Please click here if you want to know the reason for my meeting.
 
Oh and if you want to know more about the mystery lady click here.

Monday Melodies #3

Living with Mr M & Les Enfants


When I was little I spent a lot of time in the car, looking through the back window as Mum drove from one place to the next. Mum was a mental health nurse who ended up owning her own nursing home, so she was always as busy as a bee.

We would always be on the road, travelling to or from work, school, extra curricular activities, or on a mission to do a favour for someone in need. Usually at some ungodly hour. I could swear, but I won't, that Mum and one of her dearest friends my Aunt Lynette were actual CEO's or part owners for the Samaritans, or at least worked for them. They really are on par with Mother Teresa when it comes to charity work...trust me. 

In the back of the car is where I would listen to some of the greatest music ever made. My absolute all time favourites, if I had to choose any era would probably be from the 60's/70's, ohhhh please who am I kidding!! I loved the end of the 50's right up until the late 90's and I just CAN'T choose! That's me, indecisive as ever.

This song reminds me of a time, when I was a kid, sitting in the back of the car, staring through the window, dreaming about a life I had not yet lived!



Make of my mood what you will.

Join in and please leave a comment, as I really do love them xx

Saturday is Caption Day

Today is Saturday Caption Day and I'm feeling good.  So I'm headed over to Mammasaurus blog to join in.
Come over and take a look!


These are my 3 monsters. The photo was taken in summer this year. I cannot actually recall what they were doing at the time!

Reading, thinking and more reading


I have not joined in with any linky's this week, even though I have had the intention to. I have read thousands of blogs though, my eyes can attest to that. I must admit until I watched the movie Julie and Julia I didn't even know what a blog was *embarrassedface*. 

So anyway, since I started blogging in April I have slowly but surely been introduced to some really fantastic blogs and the thing is, I seem to love almost all the blogs that I've read.....I did say ALMOST!! An even if I don't relate to a blog, I enjoy the honesty of a persons thoughts and the way in which they express it, I find it very alluring.
I get to know the individual without them knowledge and share some of their memories. Erm a bit sad, I know.

This week I have been over loaded with thoughts of What I want for the kids(future, clothes, opening new bank accounts etc etc) holiday's, looking for a job, money matters and thanks to some funny posts (close your eyes mum and kids)S.E.X.!!

Bogetti or Pickle as I've taken to calling him lately has had a few tantrums this week.  As I left my sisters house on Sunday he decided to cry and scream the whole way home. I pulled up to my house with my heart pounding, hands shaking and all sweaty(the effects of his tantrums) I asked him frantically for the last time "what's wrong?" and he answered " I want to go back!" I kissed my teeth took him into the house and put him to bed, relieved he was not in any pain! He preceded to cry himself to sleep that night. Since then he has been on a rollercoaster of emotions.

Here's a pic he took of himself with my phone, with which I was going to use to join in with The Gallery this week, but never got round to it.



Izee and Ish have had a few late nights this week as I had promised them they could watch The Sound Of Music with Mama :-) they had not yet seen it. Well, of course they loved it, just as my siblings and I did at that age. Occasionally I heard them saying "oh this is where this song is from" but I was much too busy singing to answer.

Two watching the Sound Of Music and the 3rd knocked out!


Oh nearly forgot to mention...I think I have a crush on Daddy Pig. He's just too lush, he's always willing to help, bathes the kids, stays calm in all situations, loves his food and last but not least, he loves jumping up & down in big muddy puddles! ;-) Gets my vote everytime! #peppapig #teamdaddypig

Seem to be an anaemic suffering from insomnia, talking gibberish.  Time for me to go to bed as I'm officially talking rubbish.

Blogs I've really enjoyed reading this week are from @dadcalledspen and @kiranchug
