Because we have had some fun with having a picnic and watching the Flying Scotsman an the volcano which was lovely to be in the open air.I also had a playdate so had five kids in my home which for me is very anxious time. This is new territory for me as I was the one who arranged it even though I was very anxious about it becuase of my autism. But went well and my son loved playing with his friends so it was worth all the anxieties to see his face.
On Tuesday I started a course for a bit of me time in the evening all about water colours and drawing l. It is great to try something new for myself and my wellbeing. I am not sure if I will be any good at it but it is getting me out there challenging myself.
The rest of the time inbetween I have been flat out with a cold. It so frustrating as my energy is very low. Hopefully I will shift it soon as such an unconvince when I am a mum 😉
Remember the decade of the nighties, can’t believe it is so long ago but lets take a moment to celebrate some of the gems of the 90’s
1) Being a child and not giving one thought about responsibility or care about the consequences, them were the days when you didn’t have to battle your way through as an adult.
2) Making my own mix tapes with cassettes (yeah them things 😉 ) and the real effort of getting the timing right so you get he start and the end of the song.
3) You were less reachable, there was no such thing as social media, well apart from dial up and that is another story. If you wanted to reach someone you had to call them and that would have to be after six as well.
4) I loved playing Mindsweep, what a simple but addictive game.
6) I loved Goosebumps books that I could lose myself in. They were a little dark but that was what was so appealing to me.
7) The time when Freddo’s st 10p, shock horror and you could get sweets for 1p.
8) Jim Carey brought out quality films and he was God in the cinema world.
9) Things had more meaning to them as they were harder to get cds or books. They seemed to hold more value because of the cost and the fact that you had to saves ages to get something. There was less of it making it more appealing and valuable.
The best game ever was Sonic The Hedgehog on the Sega Mega Drive.
10) There was less violence in the news compared to every single day there is some horror story about something or other or maybe because I am rose tinted glasses on and a little biased.
This is becuase it has slowly been getting that bit by bit darker, which I have been enjoying as it is my faviourite time of the year.
I have loved cooler evenings, watching more films, reading more, snuggles under the throws and pillows.
Anyway, I shall also mention my eldest who has started to really enjoy reading his books and learning to write his name. He loves reading his book fron school to us and his brother. There are as no words in the book and he just loves chatting away in great detail about all the things that are happening in the picture.
As someone who learnt to read and write at the age of 10 I know how important it is and you could say I am a little more encouraging then to help enjoy it. Though to be fair to the boy doesent really need much encouragement at all as he is has such much love for learning that I don’t have to worry!
