Blogpost Ideas, Family

Who would I trade places with for the day and why

Hey lovelies,

I hope you’re having an amazing start to the week.

I’ve read many blogpost list ideas since I started blogging, lots of which were not relevant to me or my cup of tea but when I seen this idea, I knew straight away who it would be, so I had to do this post (the only problem is, I can’t actually remember whos’ list this belonged to).

The person I’d trade places with for a day is –

  • My niece, Tallie (Natalie).


    ~ Me & Tallie ~

Here’s my reasons why –

  • She’s one of the strongest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing
  • She’s a mother & makes it look so easy & so much fun
  • She has the ability to let you know when she’s pissed off with you, with just one look, I’ve had that look on more than one occasion & immediately thought “why did I say/do that?”, honestly, I wanted the ground to just open up & swallow me (I’m so sorry for the times I received that look). She doesn’t need to argue with you & she doesn’t like to.
  • She loves love, happiness & smiles, she oozes them & has plenty to go around.
  • She’s so girlie, I love it.
  • She has the ability to light up a room upon immediate entry & no matter your mood, always manages to make you smile.
  • She gives her life to her children & has such a busy mum schedule but still finds time to make you welcome into her home, she would greet you at her door no matter the time of day with a smile & an offer of a hot beverage.
  • She puts me in mind of a swan, when you observe her, she glides by gracefully but underneath it all, her inner ‘legs’ must be going like the clappers. Hehe.
  • I’ve never known anyone like her.

The tag words I’ve attached to this post are just some of the words I would associate with Tallie.

I’m proud beyond words to call her my niece & wish I seen her more than I do.

Love you lots Tallie.

I do have more of an unrealistic pick –

Kate Middleton –

I would love to know if she’s able to live a remotely normal life with her family & how they all interact (here’s a thought for you, William & Harry remind me of Stefan & Damon in Vampire Diaries! William’s Stefan, more stable & Harry’s Damon, seems to like danger & take more risks. Hehe).

I hope you have an amazing week.

Bye for now.

I went to the 80s, 90s & 00s Music Festival…………………

I recently went to a music festival & it was a 1st for 2 things for me – going to a festival & camping…………………turns out, I love them both!

Why I was so anxious about going………………………..

I’d never been to a festival before & heard horror stories about the toilets at festivals (I’ll NEVER go Glastonbury!) & I’d never been camping before either, well, apart from in mine & a friends back garden as a child but that don’t count! Richard & my dad came with me to put the tent up & I made a point of telling Richard not to put me ANYWHERE near the loos, I didn’t even want to be within queuing distance of them, I’d have been happy on the other side of the field from the loos! Well, he didn’t do that, we could see the loos from our little camping area, Richard & dad were the 1st ones in out of our group, so they picked the site for all of us. Turns out, the site they picked was, in my opinion, the best on the field (well done to them) & I worried for nothing, even though we could see the toilets, we couldn’t smell them from where we were! BONUS cause they smelt baaaaad on occasion! I worried about the loos for nothing! I was also anxious about leaving my belongings for hours on end unattended inside the tent, so, I padlocked the tent…………cause that’ll stop anyone who wanted to get in a tent wouldn’t it??? An enclosure made from material (IDIOT!)! Again, worried for nothing, no-one was interested in anything other than enjoying themselves.

The atmosphere was electric, everyone was having a laugh & enjoying themselves, the only thing we needed to seriously worry about the heat – it was HOT, HOT, HOT!

I shared a tent with one of my sisters, we shared a little camp area with 2 of our nieces, one of their friends, our future sister-in-law & 2 of her friends, I couldn’t have asked for a better group to go camping with & the weather was amazing (even if I did get sunburnt)!


Here’s some pics of our little gang…………..



We enclosed ourselves in with bunting! Hehe.


I didn’t know them but I just had to get a pic of these 3………………..Can you guess the characters???



It rained on the 1st night but that still didn’t stop us……………….



Here’s a few pics of some of the acts that played at the festival…………….

Sonia from the 80s…………………..

Chesney Hawks from the 90s…………………

Vengaboys from the 90s – they were amazing……………….

Baby D from the 00s………………….

S Club from the 00s…………………


We had an amazing weekend. It was the 1st one of these festivals at Cattows Farm in Leicestershire & I’m pretty sure they’ll be another one next year about the same time (I’m assuming).

The atmosphere was fab & although the main food on offer was sausage related (good thing my favourite meat is pig!), it was delicious, even if a tad pricey (£6 for a sausage & salad wrap), they did have other flavour sausages available & vegan options!

The drinks were a tad over priced in my opinion although probably not as expensive as other festivals!

Festival ticket prices ranged from £29 – £89, I got mine off Groupon for £29.


Here’s a few more pics……………………….




If there is one next year, I strongly recommend you go, you’ll be glad you did! They do hold this festival in other places around the country.


If you’re reading this & you were one of our little camping group, REMEMBER where we were for next year cause it’d be amazing if we could get the same spot & the same set up as this year!


The included pics were taken by me & 1 of my nieces.


Bye for now.
