What We Are Eating This Week W/C 30th April

At the start of every term, the School BB goes to send home a sheet which has his homework for the next six weeks on. It gets stuck into their homework book and that way everyone knows what is going on and we know that if there is something we need to plan on helping the children with, we can write it into our plans for the week.

Like, this week BB needs to make a meal using Rocket.

Thank goodness I knew before I wrote the meal plan for the week!

Peace Of Mind #Review

I've never thought of myself as being stressed. I mean, what do I have to be stressed about? I get to stay home, write the odd blog post, spend my day cleaning and hanging out with friends and family and doing other small chores that I know my family appreciate not having to do. However, over the last few months I've realised that I haven't been taking proper time out for me and as a result of this I am constantly on the go.

Peace of Mind : A book of calm for busy Mums by Georgina Rodgers

I've always found it really hard to switch off. Most of you have seen my Facebook Status updates where I talk about twenty seemingly unconnected things in less than a minute, It's a small insight into my mind and it's like this ALL the time in my head.

The Amazing Magazine #Review

One of the things that my friends are always amazed about, is the amount of information the Children give to me about the things they are doing at School. I didn't think that I did anything different to anyone else, I put it down to just asking the right questions and at the right time! 

I think however, it is because I take an interest that I find out so much. I don't mean an interest in the Children (although I do think my Children are pretty interesting) but rather an interest in the subject. When the Children are completing their homework or are regaling me with stories about their day, I ask let them tell me the things that they have learnt. Sometimes the Children will tell me something that I really didn't know before hand and together we'll go off and do a bit of research to find out more or to confirm a theory that they have. Other times the Children will tell me something that I vaguely remember from my own School days and together we have a discussion about this area of interest.

My Mini Me

When Top Ender was first born, she reminded me of my Sister. I couldn't see any of me in her, I couldn't see any of Daddy in her. Just my Sister. Admittedly this only lasted an hour or two and as Tops grew, she became as stubborn as I am, she talked like I do, she had a lot of the same mannerisms and everyone, apart from me, thought she was a mini me.

That was until they saw her with her Daddy.
