It’s A Whole Lotta Fun! Fun House Interview With Pat Sharp!

 

During 1989 and 1999, my only issues in life, were attending nursery/school, homework and my favourite television programmes.  Among them-Fun House.  Running from 1989-1999, the CITV children’s favourite, was by far (in my opinion), one of the best things on my big backed telly box.

Now, 28 years since the first episode hit our screens, plans are underway to bring the Fun House back!!

Alas, this news isn’t as it seems!  To be in with a chance of reviving this “whole lotta fun” show, the team need your help!

To find out more about the revival, and how the general public can help get Fun House back up and running, I spoke to the man himself, Pat Sharp. Continue reading “It’s A Whole Lotta Fun! Fun House Interview With Pat Sharp!”

Summer Holiday Clubs & Camps-Why I Won’t Be Participating

So, it’s that time of the year again.  Kids are coming home with leaflets in their bags, events are being set up and shared on social media.  What are they for?  Summer holiday clubs.

Sports clubs, holiday clubs, holiday camps, fun activity clubs-you name it, there’s something for everyone.

So why won’t I be even debating on sending my children on one of these?

My Dad-A Daughters First Love

A blog I’ve been wanting to write for a long time seems perfect to do this weekend ready for my Dad’s Birthday.

 

“A daughters first love “

I read a lot of quotes, I use a lot-especially in my blogs, then I decide whether I believe them or not!  However, there’s not a shred of doubt that the above quote is 100% true. Continue reading “My Dad-A Daughters First Love”

Until this one that is. Continue reading “Turning 31 – Crappy Birthday To Me….”

Netflix and Binge-What Are Your Favourites?

Forget Netflix and Chill, it’s all about Netflix and Binge!

During the last few months, I’ve managed to watch all 12 seasons of The Big Bang Theory over on Netflix, and am currently about to finish the entire five seasons of Homeland.

I really enjoy something I can not only get straight into, but not have to wait another week until the next episode.

The hubs is currently making his way through Prison Break-so often we’re watching two different binge shows at the same time-him on the TV and me on the iPad!

I usually go to my cousin Charlotte when I need new binge-watch ideas, (which is why I’ve ended up watching the above to programmes) but I decided this time round to ask some of my lovely blogger friends, their recommendations on binge-worthy series.

Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion, Pro-Women’s Rights

Pro

I really wasn’t sure if I was going to write this post, let alone publish it for judgemental eyes to read.

As most of my readers will be aware-maybe the reason they’d be surprised at the content of this blog-I have had three miscarriages between having Kye and Olivia.  It took us two years to get Olivia, and after the heartache of losing babies, I can understand if people are a little shocked that I would write about this kind of thing.

Guiding Lights-Giving Teachers Recognition 

 

When I was 13, and I’d just about given up on not only ever enjoying school life, but also having confidence in my learning ability-a new English teacher, came to my school. 
Knowing how horrid the girls in my school could be, I tried my hardest to make him feel welcome. I was one of the first people to speak to him, and, three years later, when I was leaving, he reminded me of my kindness in my leavers book. 

Not only did he remind me of a quality in myself I may have otherwise forgotten, our relationship had given me back my thirst for learning, and my confidence in my own abilities.  Continue reading “Guiding Lights-Giving Teachers Recognition “

525,600 Minutes-How Do You Measure A Year?

525,600

I’m unsure if those of you that will read this, are familiar with the above number and the song it relates to.

Seasons of Love is a song from the West End musical, ‘Rent‘.

This song came on a year ago today, on the radio on my TV.  I was doing washing, something not abnormal in my life, but this time, I was doing washing, ten minutes after coming in from the hospital. Continue reading “525,600 Minutes-How Do You Measure A Year?”

An Open Letter To 23 Years Of Bullies

**Disclaimer before I begin-I haven’t been bullied everyday for 23 years-the title of this blog refers to not only the regular bullying, but to the damage bullies leave behind-every day of my life.**

 

To the school kids at my first school-who started bullying me when I was only 7;
Did you even understand what you were doing at that age?  Did you even comprehend the damage you could do to a fellow classmate? Continue reading “An Open Letter To 23 Years Of Bullies”
