⁣
I’ve eaten loads and drunk far too much coffee
 I wanted to bounce on the beds and run around revolving doors (like in Home Alone) but this hotel didn’t have those kinds of doors. Just this entrance with 𝗯đ—Čđ—źđ˜‚đ˜đ—¶đ—łđ˜‚đ—č, ornate, mirrors. ⁣

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. ⁣

A social media break: alternate activities to keep teens engaged

A social media break: alternate activities to keep teens engaged

We recently went away with a family who had an older child, not quite teens but it made me think about what can do over the coming years to stop the dependency on devices. At 6, Noah is very much a tablet or Xbox child, but thankfully he is just as happy to go out for a bike ride or swimming. As much as teens love spending time online, it’s wise to remember that too much of a good thing isn’t always good. Social media has made it easier to find lost friends and relatives, but the constant sharing of personal information and the ability to get it on demand has led to other problems like cyberbullying, anxiety and depression. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent your kids from getting too dependent on this phenomenon. Here are some alternate activities you can get your teens involved in. VIEW the POST

Has there ever been a more frightening time to be a parent?

There’s no question, the advancements we see in technology every day are truly amazing and in most cases are enhancing our lives for the better. But with these developments come risks and that cannot be truer than when it comes to cyberbullying. I worry where this will be in a years to come when my children will be using social media independently. VIEW the POST
