Emotional

Hey readers,

This week has been

Quotes_Creator_20181114_194823

Because I have had a nasty cold and cough and that allow makes you feel ugh. I just haven’t got the energy and there is always something you need to be doing. I did manage to go on a family walk on Saturday with the family, which I really enjoyed. I am glad I pushed myself to go out as I really didn’t want to. The fresh air and taking photographs is two of my favourite things to do, so doing that really helped lift my mood.

I have also been on my period this week as ladies we all know what a pain and emotional wreck that can be. My anxiety is through the roof because of it. At least it is done now for another month, silver linings and all that.

I hope you have had a good week.

Edu Prints Plus review

Hey readers,

I had the opportunity to review some gorgeous educational prints from Edu Prints Plus. The company is an online shop that sell kids’ posters that are designed to give words of wisdom and numbers of knowledge to inspire, excite up, and set your kids up for the infinite things they could do.

I chose three prints with quotes on that I thought would provide motivation and inspiration for my boys. When I do have the money I shall be buy frames to make them look better on the bedroom walls.

Below is a picture of the three prints I have chosen.

Normal is overrated.

I really love this quote and think it is brilliant reminder to have on my children’s bedroom wall. I have a son who masks a lot of behaviour from seeing other children at school and I try my best to encourage him to be himself. I think it is important to celebrity individuality and not going along with the crowd. I want him to read this and remember it is ok to be different. I also like the font – is big, bright and bold that will catch your eyes. I like the cartoon picture because it is fun and child friendly.

Don’t be afraid to be different.

Again this poster stuck out to me when I was choosing prints to review. I really like this message especially when trying to reinforce the fact that it is important to be yourself. Peer pressure is a big thing and I want my children to know that it is ok to go with what feels right for you rather then what Joe Bloggs is doing. So, much of life is full of putting people into categories or bands even from an early age at school. I am real strong believer in individuality. I want my son’s to read this every day and remember this message for life.

Now, the serious bit is out of the way I want to talk about the design. I love the multi-coloured word on different. I like imagine of the picture and think it is simple but really effective. It looks great in a child’s room but also say in an educational setting such as a nursery or school.

When it rains look for rainbows.

I really like this quote especially when my son’s now take themselves to the bedroom when they want alone time. My eldest (we think he has autism but we know how hard it is to get a diagnosis). Anyhow, at night he gets very anxious and has a lot of intrusive thoughts. There is not a night goes by when he doesn’t stop asking questions over and over again. He gets scared and he doesn’t sleep very well. I like this poster because it is happy and it reminds you that even though you’re feeling sad or going through something look for the good. My son really likes this one as he loves stars. I think it looks great, attractive and popular with both my sons.

Overall I am impressed with the design, the card is thick and when delivered it is not bend which is helpful. The service is top notch. Edu Prints Plus also do more than just quotes, there’s educational pictures such as times tables. So there is plenty of choice to add a little something different to your walls.

This is an advertisement feature. I was given the three posters for free in exchange for a review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own. 

Restore

Hey readers,

My word or the week is:

as it is the return school and the non stop letters and now double the amount of letters I recieve as I have two kids that go to school now.

Of course I had to mention Halloween. We decorated the home and looks awesome. Both boys went to a Halloween party and loved every minute of it especially when they had to try and eat a donut hanging up. They got suited and booted as well with their outfits – a witch and a Skelton. There was a disco and my eldest has really gotten into recently dancing so definately in his element with that.

I am loving the early dark nights. I just feel more relaxed maybe becuase there is less people knocking around haha. I was also impressed with how well the boys managed with the clocks going back.

Frustrating

Hey readers

My word of the week is:

I just had one of them weeks when things have been testing me and makes me think what is the whole point of it all really.

I went the other day to a place further a field from where I live so had to get the bus which is stressful for me in its self. When I get to the place this was on  a Wednesday morning post 9 am and oh my gosh the place was heaving full of oaps. I am not used to this environment so really struggled to navigate and manage the noise.  Typical I picked the busiest day of the week. Then I go do a bit shopping for odds and sods and then get to the till and find I have not got my bank card it is at home. I then panic at the to and have a panic attack. So that was frustrating because it took time to go there and come back.

The next thing that annoyed me was instructions and people making them clear meaning that was is expected is not being reached.

Anyway it’s half term holiday so we can have a jolly good rest from it all.

I hope you have had a good week.

Rollercoaster

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

because my emotions have been very up down. I have felt frustrated with the school regarding my son and feeling like I am fighting a battle. I have been struggling with depression (but won’t depress you with that). I have also had some happy moments because depression is not always a straight line and mental health is very messy.

I was proud of my son this week as he received marvellous reader award from school. He hadn’t needed to be asked to read this week because he has been really loving Roald Dhal Revolting rhymes, he was hooked. I also dug out Dirty Beasts by Roald Dhal this week and he was hooked. He loves the funny dark side of tales, which is a very good choice in my opinion….lol.

Also, this week I and hubby had a checky date night during a school night, haha. We went to see Simon Evans at Loughborough. It was a good night and just h tonic needed for both of us.

Hope you have had a good week.
