Adapting 

Hey readers,
my word of the week is:


this is because I have changed my medication for anxiety and adjusting to that takes time. I need to accept that miracles don’t happen in a day and the side effects will go with time.

Let’s not forget that beautiful red sun on Monday, now feels like a distance away, haha!

Also, this week I went to my eldest parent evening, he seems absolutely fine with no concerns. He is the type of child to get on with learning and he especially enjoys findings out the way things work.

He did some yoga this term for three days a week before school started. I think he is a little sad that it has ended but happy knowing that after half term he will be starting Street dance.

Hope your week has been good.

Day 3 #blogtober17 – car

Hey readers,

Today is day 3 of #blogtober and it is all about car. Now what can I tell you about a car, well for some they are the centre of the universe and it is all about looking lovely with shiny wheels. Whereas others it is a mode of transport that gets you from A to B.

 I am luckily in the fact that my other half can drive, though I have attempted many times in the past to learn but due to my social anxiety/autism, I breakdown when it comes to the test sadly or not. I seem to get more and more anxious driving in cars. I think because there seems to be more drivers about and some right arseholes who clearly are questionable ability to drive or their whole attitude in thinking they own the road. I don’t like confrontation and it frightens me because of the past experiences and I get scared as lets face it cars are machines that can kill you.

That being said I would say that it has been really beneficial when I have been in really stressful situations and don’t have the skills at the time to get home safely, that my husband can come and rescue me instead of me from having a major meltdown at that moment.

Cars do make life easier when there are children involved as it is calmer. It is less stressful (more so when they are young) to get to places and not have to deal with the filthy looks of others while your  child is so tired they want the whole world to know about it. Not to mention saving your arms from burning with all the heavy shopping, though now it is much easier to use delivery services.

So, I suppose what I am trying to say is that cars have the good and the bad like anything but in the grand scheme of things it really doesn’t matter as long as you are healthy and happy.

Day 2 #Blogtober17 – Babies 

Hey readers,

We are now in day 2 of #Blogtober17 and today’s prompt is babies.
Now, not to sure what I am going to write about. I don’t have babies any more but young children l, so let’s reflect on them beautiful times. One of my particularly favourite baby topic poo. I give you a poem on baby poo. But one final thought before you go, who knew baby poo was black or green (one of the first thoughts when having first born).

Rant about PTA! 

Hey readers,

When my son started school I came across the PTA (a parenting teaching association) not to be confused my parents to avoid acrumn though very tempting!

Basically, what it means is that willing parents join this group to talk and discuss issues regarding school. They involve teachers and some parents which allows them to have a fairer and less biased view to voice opinions etc.

I have found that there is a lot of favouritism involved with parents of the PTA. The children get more mentions in assembly,  the winners of the raffle tend to be mainly the PTA parents or staff and generally it just feels like a cliché where they have the upper hand.

I kind of get irritated by the fact that they sell ice lollies or biscuits after school. I object to this because I feel that it is forced pressure for the parents to buy things, especially when you can’t get out the gate without your child clocking the stand. Then you have to deal with the constant pestering from your child to buy something. I also find the message of healthy eating that the school try to promote with external services a bit pointless when they sell junk food after school.  It does seems pointless trying to encourage healthy eating when you can’t be consist with the stuff you do within school.

I have been so skint before that I just didn’t have the cash to spare and the guilt/embarrassment of saying out loud to your child you do not have the money is just wrong.It makes you feel crap as a parent and causing conflict on the way home when no parent can be arsed to deal that. Nothing is more stressful with dealing with a argumentative child, when you have to deal with trying to get them home tired in the first place. It just means that the child is more grumpier it is double the stress, which is really not needed.

I hate social pressure and appears that PTA feeds of this.  All they seem to do is try and make money in raffles or what not. I just don’t like the idea that money seems to be the main concern. I don’t like that fact that it is represents parents and gives some parents more control and possibly influence over teachers.

I just don’t see the point in PTAs. The goal is to get the fullest co-operation from home to school. I don’t want to know if it means stressing over money and the waste of time of having to do mind numbing boring stuff when I could be at home sat on my fat arse drinking a brew. I suppose it is ok if it is your thing but I just hate the constant pressure. I certainly wouldn’t trust PTA, they appear to have too much time on there hands and tend to make us other parents feel lower then them.  This is my experience anyway, could be totally different somewhere else.

 aint nobody got time for that GIF
