The Day You Were Born-For My Boy, On His 8th Birthday

Last september, i wrote about miss olivia’s birth story, on her 4th birthday, after realising I’d never told it before.  i’ve also never told kye’s!

this not-so-little guy, doesn’t realise it now, but he’s the reason i’m who i am today-he was my reason to get up, to carry on, when the going got seriously tough.

SO HERE YOU ARE my gorgeous boy-here’s the story of you, and it begins in 2009……

The Story Of Us-On My Husband’s Birthday

Today is the 28th of January-which is also known as my Husband’s Birthday-his 32nd this year!

When prepping my work for this month, and getting his presents and Birthday plans sorted, I realised I’ve never used my website to tell the story of us (me and Hubs, not you and I dear reader).

So, what better day to tell it, than on the day we celebrate another year of his life!

The Punch Tavern Canterbury-Stonehouse Pizza and Carvery Review

We were recently invited to The Punch Tavern in Canterbury, Kent, to try and review their dinner menu!

We don’t get to go to many meals out as a four, mainly because the restaurant needs to be family friendly, as we have children that can sometimes be a little feral, but also because any family friendly restaurants in our local area just aren’t that nice.

Teaching children the importance of saving the rainforests.

For those of you that didn’t catch my news on my facebook page last week, Mayflower Blogs has had a little makeover!  A new website design and layout are the main feature, but there are also some new topics added that are going to be quite prominent in 2018.

One of which, is the Education tab.
I write a lot about my Son and Daughters education over on my social media platforms, and am keen to make writing about their progression and learning journeys here on the website a lot more this year.

I’m beginning with the importance of teaching children about saving the rainforests-which is coinciding with Kyes term three topic at his primary school. Continue reading

Portable North Pole – Messages for your children from Santa

 

I’m not a newbie to this PNP lark-we actually use this service every year, giving the children their own personalised videos from the man in red himself.

This year however, I was asked to write a review on the service, and introduce some new options for the video personalisation, and even show you some merchandise that is now available!

Private Renting

Private Renting-What Happens When Repairs Aren’t Carried Out?

 

Unfortunately, I do not have the luxury of owning my own home.  We have had a few homes, all of which were rented, either via letting agencies or social housing.

We now privately rent our current home, and, as per the tenancy agreement we signed when we moved in, we have a policy that states, the landlord is responsible for repairs to; the property’s structure and exterior, basins, sinks, baths and other sanitary fittings including pipes and drains, heating and hot water, gas appliances, pipes, flues and ventilation, electrical wiring and any damage that is caused when the repairs are attempted.

Grieving For An Alcoholic Parent At Christmas-Even Though They’re Still Alive

 

I know it’s Christmas-a time for magic, happiness, excitement and love. And I don’t want to put a downer on you, my lovely readers, at Christmas, but I also don’t think pretending mine is full of the above is normal either.
If I’m honest, this post has been a long time coming, and, if no one else reads it, I’ll at least get it all off of my chest and out of my head.

 

The point of this post, is basically that I am grieving for a Mother who is still alive, which isn’t a new feeling-it’s not a new grief, it’s something I’ve been processing for a long time-four years to be precise. Continue reading
