I have totally over shared myself, my thoughts and feelings. I’ve hit YouTube with a silent story video trying to explain my mental health conditions. As a result of a traumatic series of events as a young child all the way through to my early twenties. Then “bad births” with both of my sons. So many things are triggers for me. Each day I am effected in some way by it all and it doesn’t really go away.
It dawned on me I almost never do video posts now, so this weekend I filmed Freya rolling about on the fields, and Mo bunny playing with his jingle ball. Freya is a cheeky woofer, she loves rolling on the grass and chasing her own tail, just charging off without warning, luckily we have a retractable lead.
Our loveable Freya Woof doesn’t really play much yet. Every now and then she gets all hyper and bouncy and it’s adorable to watch. She was sent two Kong xtreme products to try by Swell Pets. Puppy Kong chew toys are blue and white marbley colour, standard Kong’s are pillar box red, and the Kong xtremes are in black. The rubber in the xtreme range is rougher for heavy chewers or over excitable woofers. Freya needs the xtreme products as chewing is her bad habit, plastic cups and the kids teddies, the curtains and the door mat have all been chewed. Click to view video.
Recently I got a nice email from Tots100 suggesting we might like to enter a video competition to become Center Parcs family bloggers, which comes with the perk of a free holiday. How could I refuse? We go to most home games at Kingsholm in Gloucester, it was always Blokey, D, Jen and myself. But since D has started at grammar school he has taken to remaining home to do his excessive amounts of home work. D didn’t want to come today, even though it was a very sunny, non autumnal day. Jen on a statue. We were pulling faces, our team lost. No, my nose isn’t broken. If you watch BTsport I’m sure you’ll have seen us at Kingsholm matches.
I was recently asked if I would like to review JOHNSON’s baby easy rinse foaming shampoo with Jen. I know it’s called “baby” shampoo but I’ve been using it myself too, and it smells rather nice. It comes in a little pump action bottle that makes it foam lots like the hand-soap in public loos. Jen likes it mostly because it is fun, I like it because he wants to wash his hair! Until recently he was keen on being clean, baths, showers, paddling pools or hosepipes… he was not fussy.
This month my son D has been happily reading “Uncovering the prehistoric world – dinosaurs!” by Parragon books. We are part of Book Buddies, which means we get offered lovely books like this to review. From the second the postie handed this over it has been next to D’s bed. He loves factual books displaying the facts in fun ways. You wouldn’t catch him reading a dictionary, he likes some pictures to help his imagination. I thought I would ask him on film, my apologies for the poor lighting! (The noises are his Dad and Jen cooking in the kitchen.)
