Celebrating Wednesday's #20

I took the week off last week, I do hope the lack of Wednesday Celebrations didn't ruin your week too much; you're a bright bunch so I'm fairly sure you managed to find something to celebrate anyway. However, here we are back again and ready to celebrate something really special to me, something almost as special as sloths, but not quite.

So without further ado, please get ready to celebrate this weeks very special day...

Remembering Dad's on Mother's Day

It's Mothering Sunday, the day where we say a big thank you to our mum's and hopefully get spoilt rotten, if we happen to be a mum. Up and down the country there will be mum's who have received flowers, chocolates, breakfast in bed and numerous other gifts and kind gestures and rightly so. Mum's are important people, we cook, we clean, we clothe; we take the role of nurse, teacher, taxi driver and counsellor. Let's face it, being a mum is a job with many roles and huge list of required skills, so getting a little bit of recognition once a year is lovely.

National CSE Awareness Day 2017

Today is National CSE Awareness Day. For those of you not aware, CSE stands for Child Sexual Exploitation. Written down in its full form it's a terrifying combination of words which should never need to be put together, but sadly it is a very real danger and one which can, and does affect many young people and their families.

Young people from all walks of life can become victims of CSE, boys and girls, and yes, even children from nice, well adjusted families. The most frightening part is the control that their abuser has over them, so as parents it is vital that we know what to look out for, so that if we are unfortunate enough to come across it, we are able to tackle it in it's early stages.

Pushing Me Away (or Dear Curry's PC World)

Before you get too excited, this is not a post about relationships of any kind. No it's far less interesting than that. However, it has left me fuming, or it would do were I not so laid back, I'm just a little bit frustrated.

So my laptop is working, but it's not quite what it was and it really will need to be replaced soon. With this in mind, off I pop to Curry's PC World. Well I say that, I did a fair bit of online research too, but wanted to actually see the laptops, before making a decision and hence, I find myself writing this post, which shall take the form of an open letter...

Celebrating Wednesday's #19

Here we are again, another Wednesday, another excuse to celebrate something. What will it be today, well let me tell you, today is going to be just a little bit different. Today we are not celebrating just one carefully chosen theme, but four.

Each week there are several themes I can choose from, and out of those, there is always one that really shouts at me, but not so this week. This week, none of them is really saying, write about me, I'm fun, different, quirky and so, I present to you this week's celebrations...

The End of a Chapter

I'm not sure if I should be writing this post or not. If I'm completely honest, I don't actually know how this post is going to turn out. I've no idea what I want to say, or how I want to say it, but my head needs clearing out and the way I do that is to write. Writing is, for me, a creative outlet, but also a therapeutic tool; so I suppose it stands to reason that I would feel the need to write at this time.

As a general rule, my posts are always very clear in my head. I know what it is I want to say and I have a very good idea of the shape it will take. So right now, I feel like a fish out of water and I'm just trusting my fingers to hit the right keys and produce something that is vaguely readable and well, hopefully won't be a load of mumbo jumbo.
