Goodbye September – Hello October

Goodbye September – Hello October

I can not believe another month is over, where has September gone, it has flown by for us, and now we are looking forward to a brand new month. September has had its ups and downs, and very busy we saw the start of the new school year, and C starting back with her 1 hour lessons 3 days a week.  She seems to be coping ok, we tried increasing to an hour and a half, but she struggled, so we put it back down again.  She is loving her…

My Week – 18/09/2016

Another week has flown by, and it is time for my weekly post about the goings on in the StressedMum household. My Daughter C, started back at school this week, she does 1 hour a day on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, in school with a tutor.  She has loved going back into school and starting to get a bit of routine back in to her life.  She was struggling by Thursday, but the smile on her face when she came out on Thursday made my week.  I asked her…

Lolly’s Sweet Treats Review

Lolly’s Sweet Treats Review

When I was a child, we used to be able to go to our local sweet shop and buy penny sweets or buy a quarter of what we wanted at the time from a huge choice of sweets in a jar or a quarter of one and a quarter of another.  These days this has changed and when I talk to my kids about this they look at me as if I am about 100 years old. When Harry from Lolly’s Sweet Treats contacted me asking if I would like…

Goodbye August – Hello September

Goodbye August – Hello September

So another month has passed and a new one just beginning.  We have had such lovely weather in August. I have found August very hard, as friends and family have been enjoying family days out and holidays, or hearing about the kids going out to play.  I was expecting this as my friend told me the first summer holidays are always the worst. I have felt jealous and as this should have been us, out enjoying the summer holidays. August for us has seen C have her friend here once, she…

When 3 Become 4

Before you all start getting excited, no I am not pregnant.  But we do have an extra child living with us now, my 18 year old stepson.  It all happened very quickly but he has been here a week now. As you can imagine things have been quite hectic with sorting him out and sorting his room etc,as well as dealing with C. She is still no better and we have been unable to go out and enjoy the lovely weather we have been having.  I have been struggling with…

1st Blog Anniversary

1st Blog Anniversary

Today is my 1st Blog Anniversary, and what a year it has been 🙂 I started my blog last year, because I enjoyed reading blogs and was at a stage in my life where I thought this was something I would like to do.  I had no idea about blogging really, and reading blogs from your favourite and new bloggers, is totally different to when you actually start blogging. So, a year ago today, after telling my husband I wanted to start writing a blog, he set me up and…

My Week – 21/06/2016

Ok I know I am late with posting this, I have been so busy and not really had a chance to sit down and write my post. My Daughter, is pretty much the same as last week, although in a lot more pain unfortunately, she had physio last week, and that wiped her out for the rest of the week so we have just been resting up at home. We had my eldest here for the weekend as he wanted to be here for Fathers Day, and it was the…

My Week – 30/05/16

These weeks are really flying past far too quickly, is it really time for another of my weekly update posts. Well this week has certainly been a rollercoaster of emotions, my Daughter has still been suffering and going through a crash still, so has not been able to go to school, so we have been doing school work at home when she has been up to it.  She has been in a lot of pain again this week and relying on pain killers more 🙁 Wednesday, saw the #MillionsMissing, which…

For those of your with younger children

For those of your with younger children

I know I haven’t written any posts about what my Daughter has been up too, due to her being so ill this year, but when I did, a lot of people used to start to worry about what they have to look forward too.  Also on reading posts from you with younger children, I would say I can sympathise as I have been through this as well. Today, on my Facebook memories, three posts came up and made me laugh and will let you see, I really have been there…
