đŸ’» Guess who’s got a đ—±đ—Č𝗮𝗿đ—Čđ—Č? Oh yes, that is me. Over 3 years of hard work has led me to this and I feel so proud of myself. Starting a degree during Covid and homeschooling children and working is just insane when I think back.⁣
⁣
All that study time means I have a BSc Hons in đ— đ—źđ—»đ—źđ—Žđ—Čđ—șđ—Čđ—»đ˜ đ—Łđ—żđ—źđ—°đ˜đ—¶đ—°đ—Č. I love that this is a universal degree, it means I can use it whatever my future holds. ⁣
⁣
As it’s an apprenticeship, through my employer, I still have some work to do to finish off. But my certificate is en route
 the hard work is done. I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my employer giving me time to study and Hubby for giving me the space to work into the evenings and weekends. It’s a lot of time. And I will be forever grateful. ⁣
⁣
I love learning and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, as I left uni at 20 without my 𝗟𝗼𝘄 degree. It was my biggest regret leaving so close to the end. But I’ve done it now and that’s the main thing. ⁣

Rambo was terrified of them, he would shake and not eat for days around this time of year. I often made him a den somewhere, so he could hide. It’s not nice seeing your đ—łđ˜‚đ—żđ—Żđ—źđ—Żđ—¶đ—Č𝘀 go through that. So we’ve never really embraced this occasion by going to a firework event. ⁣

Instead we sit and watch them from the glass windows, where we’re warm and safe. I raised a glass of đ—łđ—¶đ˜‡đ˜‡ to my furbabies up in heaven tonight. The night sky was deep blue and clear so I could see the beautiful stars inbetween the fireworks. ⁣

Car journeys can be tense affairs at the best of times. But if you’re preparing for a long journey with a baby in the car, it can be a real challenge. Below you will find some great hints and tips to help you to prepare for a road trip with little ones. Young babies If you have a very young baby, then you have to plan your journey carefully; for the first few months of a baby’s life, milk is the only thing on the menu!
