Gummy bear show, but why oh why?!

Hey readers,

if you have small children then you have been sure to be have had the privilege of having to hear the gummy bear song. If you haven’t heard of it then I beg you do not Google it or else you will never erase that memory from your mind.

gummy bear

well, my youngest absolutely loves the gummy bear song, it is dame awful. It involves the popular American sweet a gummy bear, bright green bear singing a dreadful song called I’m a gummy bear, yes I am a gummy bear.

Now if that is not bad enough, the producers go further and milk it for all its worth and have only gone and done a blinking show, called the Gummibar and friends. It is wrong and traumatic to have to sit and listen to it .

It is full of nasally singing, bright colours in the show and al the way through it is none stop singing. I need to wear glasses to watch it. The story is so silly and I quite like to punch the gummy bear in the face truth be told.

I just hate it, it is a crap storyline and clearly milking it for all it’s worth. Ok fair enough you have to earn the doh but you killing me slowly with getting my son hooked on it and that is all he ever wants to watch now. FML!

I just want to point out that Gummy bear really needs to invest in some bigger pants as every shot when he is wiggling his butt I see his crack, it is not attractive and he is constantly dancing or singing, which is so painful to my poor little ears and eyes.

One final thought, the song is attractive and a total earworm, whether I want it going round and round it appears I am these days permanently singing it.

Rant OVER!!!

Specially delivered chocolate

Hey readers,

As we are fast approachFathers day (17th June) I think I have found the perfect present for any chocolate-loving daddy out there. It is personalised chocolate from an online company called Morse Toad. The idea is to choose a bad pun gifts and put it on to some tasty chocolate into a box. It is a fun and lovely way to add a personal touch to a present. Sometimes it can be hard to find a present for a man and not to make it so predictable so this is a perfect gift that adds a touch of thought to the gift.

I think one of the most appealing things about this chocolate gift is that it is a letterbox gifts so if your in a rush, you don’t have to go anywhere and can do all the work online and wait for it to be delievered to your letterbox.

You can add a picture card also to the box with a message. The picture card is something you can be kept after all the chocolate is eaten. It is an ideal size for putting in the wallet or on the fridge.

The delivery is super fast within 3 to 5 days and it is secure and comes in a shiny gold envelope making it feel luxurious.

You can add bad puns which are a playful way to add to a gift. I have used super dad that you can see in the pictures above so very ideal for Father’s day. to the chocolate such as super dads like I have in my pictures which is great for Father’s Day there.

I really like the packaging of the box, it is not over the top put fun and character to it. It will definitely put a smile on anyone’s face if they received this personalised gifts .

The difference between a therapist and a psychologist

Hey readers,

When thinking of psychological therapy you might assume that the therapist is just one type that does the job. Well actually no, there are different types – therapists and psychologists.

So, let me tell you the difference. A psychologist has studied in the field of psychology (has a PhD in psychology) and that would involve things like behaviour, thoughts, feelings and motivations rather than physical aspects of mental health.

One of the roles of a psychologist is signposting the client to other agencies, whether that be talking therapies, family therapy, art therapy etc.¬† They are medically trained so they don’t tend to look at things from a medical¬†perspective such as genes and they don’t offer medication that would be a psychiatrist’s job.

Now not everyone will see a psychologist Рthey do work in GP surgeries and hospitals. However, they are specialist and they tend to be available for more complex conditions or if the person needs more specialist help.

Abstract,Light,abstract,texture

Alternatively, there is therapist which is a more common option. The therapist does talking therapy and evidence has shown that seeing a therapist has helped a lot of people with different types of mental health conditions. Now with a therapist, they tend to be qualified for a specific type of therapy such as Cognitive behavioural therapy, family therapy, gestalt therapy to name a few. They also tend to know a lot about specific conditions and the symptoms that come with that condition.

The therapist will be qualified and trained in the specific therapy they use. A therapist may not have been to university or through some are a psychologist as well. However, the therapist will have been approved by the UK counsel of the psychotherapy and taken specific qualifications to be a therapist.

Lost

Hey readers,

Today I feel a bit lonely, though not in the sense where I want to mingle with people. More isolating, knowing that I am different and that sense of not being ‘good enough’. Often I can ignore or distract myself from focusing on negativity. But today is a struggle. I just feel like I can not function like the rest of society. I feel my inadequacies…. they feel so loud in my head, they might not be real but they feel real to me and today it hurts.

black brush strokes on white paper

I have always battled with being autisitic…it is tough going, after a tough long week of challenges with a little fight left it can defeat you. I think one of my problems so I am not often relaxed in situations such as having to go to the school assembly, this is where I feel most insecure. I don’t feel right and I feel like everyone is watching me. I know I¬† am probably being narcissistic¬†and changes are no one is, no one cares, hey even some may feel similar.

Concrete pillars

At the time it feels scary, and because my anxiety is on that super alert it is hard to come down without the good old meltdown. Yes to that question I did have an epic meltdown, it is all I could do. Then I took my laptop and wrote my thoughts. No real answers, it is merely a record of how I am feeling.

I feel not amazing but cathartic, now I am going off for a tea, cause let’s face it, tea doesn’t cure feeling crap but sure makes the painless hard to bear.
