Well the decks are up the kids are singing all the Christmas songs they learnt.
And of there I am thinking if I hear that song one more time I hear little donkey this mummy going send that donkey 1st class to bethlehem. Then of course a fight breaks out over who’s song is better. And then who can sing better and the 9 year old pipes up well “I can read so I don’t have to learn every word of by heart. Then get youngest yelling back” well your old like mandated ‘m so you can.remember all the words were I’m still young” at this point I’m laughing my.head of unable to tell any child of. So what do I do. I pretend I never heard a word and that I was just to busy. Then comes the big guns come out from the 9 year old. I’m older so can phone Santa and you can’t so do as your told or I call him. Now go ask mummy if we can.have are count down calender or I call him. Ok so that moment I did step in and say enough no calling Santa. It is funny when they have these strange little one ups that turn out to be what you don’t think.there about .
Christmas is coming and along with all the Happiness joy laughter presents and cheer comes other things. Now as every one knows I have two sons. They are so funny and make each day intresting and new. Earlier this week my youngest son came into my room laid his little head on my lap. His big blue eyes looking deep into my soul I knew he was going to break my heart so to speak. In he’s most sorrowful voice he spoke. “Mumy I’ve just not got any Christmas spirit this year I’m just not feeling it this year mummy.we need to do something about this as I’m five I need Christmas spirit Or I might go crazy. It was so sweet I tried my hardest not to laugh at him or cry as it was funny and sad at the same time. But made me think what gives us chistmas spirit..is it joy on a child’s face. Is it celebrating family and friends or the birth of God’s only child. What I enjoy the most is seeing joy not just on my son’s face. Also I enjoy seeing the look on family and faces when I give them a really thought full present .
Christmas means me any things to many people. To me it means showing you care by doing Something or giving them a meaning full gift maybe something they really wanted but could not buy for some reason. To overs it’s celebrating birth of God’s only son.
I think back to the days of my childhood the games that were played in the playground. Now I seen the children of the local school my children go to and wonder what there play times can be like considering now the amount of things that have been banned. Kids can’t play hopscotch because of the throwing a stone. Skipping because skipping rope could hit someone in face and hurt them. Chase because running around they could fall on each other. And many other games that used to fill are play times with so much joy and teach us so many life lessons. Like how just because you lost don’t mean your a loser means you lost this time. And the basic animal instincts of go for the weak first. It helps children bound these games that used to be played some times had whole playground playing. Like red rover I can recall a time when the whole school playground was divided in to two groups . We all enjoyed to and whole week everyone talked about it and some of the newbies were taken in on there first day Because of this game. What are we teaching are children by droppings many things that as children we all enjoyed and learned to be safe doing so. Now some children are scared to do so much because of all the rules that are in place these days. I do wonder how we still have books coming home when kids could get paper cuts. When will this stop were will it stop at? I talk about playing marbles with my boys and they look amazed at me I ask why they reply” what about the risk to your fingers and others slipping on them. I never think of that as a kid and wonder what makes them think that way.
Students spend a shocking 940 million on alcohol a year . That is a huge amount considering the amount of time there studying in class or on break. A recent poll of 8,000 people questioned throw a student magazine 70 percent have taken drugs. One third of female students have reported sexual assault. And those are just the ones that report it. There are other huge risks, there is weight gain , malnutrition lack of exercise. There is also a risk alcohol poisoning and alcohol related injuries. Which could result in death or serious injury.
There’s also risk of stds with all unprotected sex that go’s on in university one in five will get a life changing std and one in ten a life changing baby.
Also there is depression and other mental health illness that are more common to show signs under stress. Then can come to the misuses of prescription drugs . Which can lead to other hard core drugs.
All of these stress and worries, risks no wonder so many parents fear there children leaving home to go universities and some have even resulted to bribing there children to go the closes university’s to them. I can say as a mother I fear the day it comes to choice of university and even have said I move home so they could stay home and lower the risk of any thing happening. But I do have while yet as my oldest is 9 so he’s still young which could be part reason that at moment why I think I would move with him if need be. Only time will tell if it will get better for students.
What I wish I knew before
4.If you.dress up for a date don’t dress up for him/her. Dress up for you. It’s better that you dress up for you.to feel good about yourself And seem confident about your self then dressing up how you think there like to see you. As a man tends to like a confident woman then a.woman dressed a set way
5.Listen to them as well as reply to what they say even.if it’s just to say I don’t, much about that. Or could your tell me more about it. Don’t spend evening talking about your self. But do talk about yourself when there’s silence talk. But then turn it back on to them by ending with a question
6.Don’t talk about ex’s on first dates as makes it sound like your still in love with them. And that would send any new potential partner running
7. Meet on a neutral ground. Don’t go to one of your favourite places or there’s. By going to a favourite place of yours or there’s gives you or them more of an upper hand. You need to both be on even level. Plenty of time all going well later for you to go there.
So when I was younger there was things I didn’t know about dating. To many I seemed like a pro but I was not I was used to boys as mates. One thing I did learn when it comes to dating mates it’s not that easy to step back over the line once you have crossed it. Two boys that were fantastic mates of mine and we crossed over from doing friend things to what you do with a lover. And when that ended it ended with us never talking again and it still hurts to this day. Not because I love him but because I miss my friend so never cross the line.
Second is this.
Never think that because you kissed someone the night before that they going to want to date the next day. Not always the case sadly you can.hope it is and sometimes it will be but only sometimes. Try not to follow lust follow your brain as that is a girls best weapon when dating
Don’t go for someone just because they look good go for someone you can talk to. Because between the kissing them you need to be able to talk to them. Outside is just a cover what’s in there heart and soul is what matters. And if your lucky enough to find some one who’s heart and soul are the other half of yours. And there looks are to your liking then.your lucky . I am a very lucky lady as my man has heart of gold and a pure soul to match.
More in my next post and rules you know love to know your thoughts.
A contagious disease requires you to be put into quarantine for a whole month (don’t worry, you get well by the time you’re free to go!). How would you spend your time in isolation?
Being a child that spent a lot of time.in hospital growing up as my dad.was.in the army it meant that a lot of hospitals were near empty on children’s ward’s. So it meant that it was like being in isolation. Most of my time I spent reading and writing story’s of pretend world’s. As I would be on be rest could hardly run around as I.would.have both legs in casts. Also I would watch films and documentaries. Basically it would be a case of using the time to learn and to build a world that I could enjoy and have fun in and my illness never matters as I would make my self in my world healthy.
