Today the Daily Mail / Mail on Sunday paper is the most hated thing on the internet after the article by Ross Slater, closely followed by that big brother woman. You must have read this today? About the lying reporter wasting time and stealing food? Michelle from Crowther Clan blog wrote this post earlier. A well worded moan at the Daily Mail, which I recommend reading. Also Mummy Glitzer wrote a brilliant blog post about food banks.
Did you know that you can make a real difference by wearing a festive jumper and donating just one pound? Save the Children is asking people to make the World better with a sweater. This is to help raise money for their life saving work, which helps the most vulnerable children, in the poorest countries, with things such as vaccines and mosquito nets. Save the Children work in more than 120 countries.
We have two tiny gardens. The back garden is fenced and secure but a mess thanks to the pesky (but cute) chickens. This is the state of the garden, hardly any grass and waterlogged clayish soil. With the current rain it’s boggy out there! The front garden is smaller, and with no fencing but has better drainage and supports a lawn, woohoo. It’s good enough to keep trees alive and happy.
The following is stolen quoted from Jax’s post Liveotherwise – Have you ever been annoying? Well be careful then, you might be about to become a criminal. Sadly, I’m not exaggerating. You see, in a drive to simplify our somewhat overburdened legislation, the government is currently considering a new Bill, the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill which could make being annoying a criminal act. They are looking at replacing ASBOs with IPNAs – Injunctions to Prevent Nuisance and Annoyance. Now, preventing nuisance and annoyance probably sounds like a great idea. But, think about this properly. This can be applied to a child from aged 10 or up. Do you know any child from age 10 or up that is never a nuisance or annoyance? Perhaps you’re still not worried because after all, there will be a carefully described and thought through series of checks and balances, right. Um. (1) […]
Ok ok this isn’t really much to write a blog post about but look at this nice blog badge/logo. Thank you so much Kathleen!! Was so kind of you!
I just read a blog post on BritMums asking parent bloggers to say what our children do or would do, with pocket money. So here is my entry for the BritMums and pktmny blog challenge linky.For D it’s always the same, his pocket money goes into his bank via standing order each week and he saves until he’s reached his goal. The main thing he saves up for is Lego. D is obsessed with Lego, but only likes certain ranges….the lad knows what he wants! Normally when he’s just short of the RRP of the model he wants we have to check in local shops, then Google to make sure it’s a good deal. Last year he saved most of the year and bought himself a Nintendo 3DS in blue. He again knew what he wanted, and we searched online and in town for the best deal for him. He […]
Started off with being woken up too early by my other half… not so good! Then littlest said the spots on his legs were itching so a phone call to the doctors was in order. As normal they didn’t really know, but I felt I was being judged….. he has had spots on his leg about a week, but he’s been perfectly healthy except this and it wasn’t bothering him. I get similar myself, it comes and goes without real explanation. Maybe I was just feeling sensitive as last time I saw this doctor it was when he had a head injury.Do other patents feel almost threatened by “that look” from professionals?? Anyways, after this we cycled back via the park, saw some birds and played on slides, swings and lots of variations on roundabouts. Eldest felt so dizzy he nearly puked! Tmi? After cycling back home we got lunch […]
