Mr Popper’s Penguins at SEC

Mr Poppers Penguins is a  musical adaptation of the popular children’s book of the same name by Richard and Florence Atwater that was first published in 1938.  Before I go into a bit more about the story and my thoughts on the show, it’s worth saying a few words about the type of show you’re in for to manage your expectations. It’s essentially a musical stage show, not unlike any other theatrical musical you may have seen. I’m not so sure everyone in the audience on the day we attended had done their homework. I saw a few people...

Cinderella at SEC Armadillo

Panto Season is in full swing…Oh no it isn’t!! (Sorry, couldn’t resist!!)  I took my eldest (6 years old) to see Cinderella at the SEC Armadillo. We were joined for the festivities by my sister-in-law and her two eldest kids (13 and 10).  It’s starts as expected with a burst of glitz and glamour from ‘Fairy Alice’ played by Frances Thorburn  (River City and Waterloo Road). She opened up the show in the broadest comedic Glaswegian accent referring to herself as “Gallus Alice from Shieldinch!”   We all know the background of Cinderella and the production doesn’t deviate much...

FM World Uk

Hey there! As you’ve no doubt noticed, I haven’t posted on the site for a while. I’ve been really busy with work and the kids so just haven’t found the time.

Yeah…I’d never heard of them either until I bought some perfume from another distributor! They manufacture and distribute fragrances, make-up, body care and nutritional products.  Because I liked the perfume (and...

My Girls Are Making Waves

Swimming lessons in the past at our local council swimming centre seemed to go nowhere after months of lessons. My eldest did build confidence but never managed to swim without the aid of a float. So I stopped the lessons as I felt the money would be better spent elsewhere. I saw a new facility had opened nearby and thought I would give it a try.  Making Waves Ltd based in East Kilbride is different from the other facilities in Scotland as the pool is a dedicated teaching pool for learning. I’m so impressed with the overall feel of...

Where has the time gone?!

Wow, six years old. My little baby is six years old! That’s another milestone reached. I wonder how time moves so quickly from my baby girl to a confident, bossy 6 year old schoolgirl. I honestly feel that only yesterday I was holding her in my arms totally overwhelmed wondering how will I do this? Be a mum? And feel so much love for one tiny person.  Here’s a letter for you on you 6th Birthday  To my Georgia pie, Today you are six years old and every year seems to come around so quickly but that happens with...
