Homework Is an evil word!

Friday, 27 November 2015 / Leave a Comment

It's Friday afternoon and I am sat here already dreading this weekend when I have to mention the 'H' word.
Our past 4 weekends have been dictated by Big Ts explosive rants and tantrums about not wanting to do his homework.
Now any family or friends who know Big T know that when he gets in a mood he can sulk for the gold medal at the Olympics if it were a sport!

Vauxhall Zafira B's Catching Fire! | Has yours been recalled?

Thursday, 26 November 2015 / Leave a Comment

You may have seen on social media or on TV lately (Shows such as the BBCs Watchdog or ITVs breakfast show Good Morning Britain) that Vauxhall are in the process of recalling 220,000 Zafira B's for inspection due to the risk of them catching fire *argh!*

My family has a Vauxhall Zafira B.

Siblings | November 2015

Wednesday, 18 November 2015 / Leave a Comment

I can not believe its Siblings Linky time again!
I had thought I'd share something 'amazing' for this month but as usual just been so hectic with the mundane everyday life of housework, looking after the kids and running out to work that weeks have passed and we have not done anything 'exciting'.

Big T and K had their parents evening last week so we had the usual bickering leading up to it of who had done better at school!
#siblingrivalry grrrrrrrrrr
They have still had their wars and bickering over the most stupidest things.
They have also been getting jealous a lot of each other  and who gets to spend the most one on one time with me.
Makes for a very tiring time when little T has decided the past few weeks that he dosn't want to sleep in his bed, he'd rather be in with mummy.
This then starts K off with 'I want to sleep with you mum' and I have to try really hard to explain why little T can share the bed but not her. Space being the biggest issue! and I just don't want to share my bed! But it is hard and not fair on anyone.
Feels like a lot of unfairness and sibling rivalry floating about in our household the past few weeks :(

Heres hoping December sees an improvement!...It is Christmas after all :)

My picture for this month is actually a video.
It is showcasing the mad moments when all 3 get together and wrestle on the rug.
Little T loves to jump all over his older siblings and they love to get squashed...weird kids!
But its FUN.

dear beautiful

I look forward to reading all the other linkys.

10 signs your child needs an eye test | Children's eye health

Friday, 13 November 2015 / Leave a Comment

Sometimes it can be tricky to tell if your child has a problem with their eyes whilst some cases can be glaringly obvious.
Children quite often will not know themselves that they have a problem with their vision and they can be really good at compensating for having poor vision so that you wouldn't even notice.

Roald Dahl House of Twits

Thanks to Chunk, the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Penguin Books all the kids have had their heads and hands firmly stuck on their newest game, The House of Twits.

Yes...The much loved Roald Dahl favourites are back with a new game, the previous game being Twit or Miss.

Dealing with death with children | A tribute to my Nan

/ Leave a Comment
It is my Nan's funeral tomorrow. A time to say goodbye.
I found this poem on the internet and thought it summed things up brilliantly.

God saw you getting tired
and a cure was not to be
so he put his arms around you
and whispered,
Come to me.
With tearful eyes we watch you
and saw you pass away
and although we loved you dearly
we could not make you stay.
A loving heart stopped beating, 
hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
he only takes the best.

Where ma diddy? | The dummy debate

Monday, 2 November 2015 / Leave a Comment

Epic meltdown in the supermarket. 
Tiredness twinned with anger that he couldn't have THAT toy. Strangers staring at the screaming toddler rolling around on the floor. 
Me, face bright red, feeling embarrassed wishing the ground would open up and swallow me whole!
Then I utter the words....."Do you want your diddy?"(Diddy = Our word for Dummy/Pacifier/Soother) as I place the noise stopper in his mouth, taking the easy option to end the tantrum.
