My word of the week is:
because I have been feeling rubbish. I started feeling rough at the beginning of the week and just really struggled with tiredness. My whole body aches and I haven’t done half the stuff I needed to. Oh, joy, well as I have next week to catch up. Oh no, it is half term, haha!
I am currently loving The a young Offenders on BBC3. It is so funny and one of the best things I have seen recently watched on the box. If you haven’t seen do check it out.
Also, can we just acknowledge how pants the weather is, seriously so miserable and cold!
My son received another badge from Beavers for completing a code all by himself. He also got to say goodbye to some of the children in his group as they were moving up into a different group as they are getting old now.
Hope you have had a good week.

Who doesn’t love a deal especially if you are still in February and dieting? One kitchen appliance that can really help cut calories or even Slimming World is Actifry – basically where you use one teaspoon of oil or less but they cook the chips perfect. You can check out the latest deals on Actifry here – https://www.latestdeals.
Of course with an Actifry you don’t just have the option of cooking chips low fat. There are many alternative foods you can indulge in without having to worry about overindulging in oil. You can do things Mozzarella sticks, breaded chicken to name but a few.
On the latest deals website, you can find the hottest deals that can save you money.
There are all sorts of products that have been found in the deal section. From reduced makeup right up to toys. They are the latest deals so you don’t have to do the slogging. They are selected from shops online and off.
One of my favourites is to find is items for my children, because let’s face it kids are expensive. So, anything I can do to save a few pounds then I am a happy bunny.
My current favourite deals on Latest deals is half price toys in the sale from The Entertainer
I love finding deals on clothing for the boys. I particularly like storing clothes that are suitable for next year when the sales are on. Great way to save money is to buy a year in advance I have found. I love these Teletubbies PJs from Amazon
that is reduced from £9.99 to £5.99.
My youngest is going through an obsession around dolls so this is a cracking deal from Morrisons is only £1.50 includes a dolly and little toy bicycle, great for kids imagination, plus it is always a winner in my eyes as it doesn’t take up to much storage.
What do you think about deals? Have you found any good ones recently?

This is a sponsored post. However, all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
Today I want to talk to you about Facebook groups, and in particular blogging Facebook groups and why I don’t participate in them.
The first reason why I don’t participate in Facebook groups is that there’s so many that I just don’t know where to.I get so overwhelmed with all these choices That my brain just wants to shut down and can’t cope with it.when I eventually did decide on a Facebook group one time again got overwhelmed with the information and it was just so fast pace I couldn’t keep up.
I don’t know how some parents who blog and join in with Facebook groups keep on top of it all. not know where to go. It just sucks the joy out of it makes me not want to bother blogging because it just seems so competitive I’m trying to keep on top is a nightmare.
not to mention all the different topics that are firing away it’s just too fast for me and that’s just in one.
Not to mention the constant rules that you have to keep on top of. I just haven’t got time for that. I haven’t enough things to think about regarding my blog but I don’t need any more rules. his mum hasn’t got the energy she’s too tired all the time.
I appreciate that Facebook groups can help people in providing information and connecting with other like-minded people. However, I’m autistic and it seems like and a whole new set of social rules that I just can’t manage. I just generally feel rubbish after reading these Facebook grapes like it’s a reminder that I’m an outcast. for me, I’ve learnt that is best just not to join Facebook groups and is easy to just go with the flow. Ignorance is Bliss after all.

I received this lovely arrow sign from the boy’s room. I used it for the boy’s room but you can add any personalised name to the sign and put anywhere you fee the desire to add some personlised decor. The sign is from a company called Kent-Made who is an online shop that provides personalised wooden gifts to give someone special in your life.
The types of products range from arrows to wooden plaques. Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or even weddings.
I like the fact that it is plain therefore giving you the option of decorating it even more. However, my boys love arts and crafts so at some point probably next week I shall be doing it a day half term thing. Therefore they get to do art and it is personal to them, as it will be on their door.
The boys really love the design and like the fact that they could share it as they often want the other has. You can choose different angles and design to your arrow which is a good idea if you have a certain idea of which way want the sign to go.
The quality is really good and I can’t fault customer service.
I defiantly recommend you check them out if you want something a little bit different

I was gifted the arrow sign in exchange for a review. All my opinions expressed are entirely my own.
The other day I decided to make drizzle cake with my boys and it was so much fun, plus everyone loves it. Lemon drizzle cake is spongy but light with the zest kicking through. Plus it is fairly easy to do.
225g unsalted butter
225g self-raising flour
225g caster sugar
finely grated zest 1 lemon
For the drizzle topping
1/12 lemon juice (squeezed from the lemon)
85g of sugar
1. pre-heat the oven to 180c Fan or 160c Gas.
2. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until it looks like a pale and creamy colour.
3. Add the eggs one at a time and mix them into the mixture.
4. Sift the flour then add the zest of the lemon into the mixture and mix thoroughly.
5. Now you can line the loaf tin, however, I used some butter and sugar to give it a lovely crunchy coating on the outside.
6. Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and level the top with a spoon.
7. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes. You can check to see if it is baked through with using a skewer and gently putting into the middle of the loaf tin. If it comes out clean then the cake is done.
8. Whilst the cake is left on the side to cool down you can mix together the juice of the lemons and sugar to make the drizzle part.
9. Prick the cake all over to make holes and then drizzle over the lemon sugar mixture, this allows it to sink inside the cake and the sugar will leave a lovely crisp and crunchy topping on top of the cake.
10. When it is cool you can serve up.
