Ten Reasons Why Gratisfaction Uk Is The Best Freebie Site To use

Everybody loves a freebie, don't they? I remember when I was younger and I had to fill in a form, send it away and wait for the freebie to arrive. By the time you had paid for the stamp, it really wasn't a freebie. These days with the internet so easily accessible, we can get freebies on a daily basis and it didn't cost you a thing. We use a website called gratisfaction.co.uk and here are 5 reasons why it is so simple to use.

Personalised Hoodies From LoveMillie.co.uk

Kids all love personalised clothes, don't they? Tilly is no different, she likes to be able to use her imagination and personalise things. So when we were offered a personalised hoodie from Love Millie, Tilly knew she wanted to have her YouTube name put on it. she has her own channel and I guess she has seen me advertise my own blog, so she wanted to get her channel seen.

Keeping Kids Occupied In The Summer With educational Quizzes

Yes! its the last week of term and I for one am looking forward to the summer holidays of no having to stick to routine apart from the days that I need to go to work. Tilly is ready for the summer holidays too, the past academic year has been a big one for her because she was diagnosed with severe dyslexia part way through the year and I have noticed her struggle more. When she was diagnosed, a few months into year 2, she was at a reading level of the end of reception class. So I introduced some online learning websites to help her along the way.

Bailey The Tablet Cosy Holder, Review

I don't know about your kids but I do know that mine are quite tech savvy and even Tilly who is 7, knows so much more than me! She has a Kindle Fire for kids and she has had it for a couple of years and she actually has it glued to her hands sometimes. Because we don't watch normal tv, we usually use apps on the fire stick or on our smart devices to catch up and watch films. This means that Tilly has to use her Kindle propped up against the wall and more often than not, it slips down and she gets really annoyed. She can hold her Kindle but I really don't like her having it that close to eyes, so what was the solution?

Mum Guilt, Do We Ever Get Over It?

When you're a working parent, you are always full of guilt. Guilt that you have sent your kid to school with a rushed breakfast, guilt that you have shouted at them for not getting dressed fast enough when you have to get ready too. Then there is the guilt of not being able to attend all of the school events like assemblies and sports days. Now I have been a parent for 25 years and I have been to more school events than I can even remember. But with Tilly, I have missed two special events at school recently and as if I didn't feel bad enough already, I had to cancel a SEN appointment at school yesterday.

Mental Health and Travel: Breaking Free from OCD

Today we have a guest post from Phil at https://www.moneylessman.co.uk, and he has written about mental health. This is something close to my own heart and something I struggle with. Please pop over and read his blog and give him some support on Twitter www.twitter.com/themoneylessman

There are many misconceptions about mental health issues. The one I’m most familiar with is OCD. What do you think of when you read the letters OCD? I imagine many of you instantly thought about people who wash their hands, like to clean things, or like things in a certain order. I don’t blame you. That’s what the media has told you OCD is. But it’s not.

A Weekend Trip To Basel

Recently I started to worry that I wasn't going to take Tilly on a holiday this summer after our epic trip to Europe last summer. Holidays in the summer holidays are just so expensive and quite out of my price range, so when the school announced there would be a 4 day weekend I knew that I had to book something for Tilly and myself. I looked and looked but couldn't find anything that appealed to me, until 2 weeks before the long weekend. I found myself on the Ryan Air website and I found some flights for £30 each to Basel in Switzerland. The room that we found on booking.com looked alright (but later we found that it was far from okay!).

Helping Kids To Cope With Their Problems With The Worry Wizard

Tilly is always worrying, is it any wonder with the things she has been through in her life? She has had to cope with a lot over the years we have tried different things from worry dolls to keep her worries and dream catchers to catch her bad dreams. But she still worries about EVERYTHING! She worries that she will be late for school, She worries about who is picking her up from school. She worries about travelling and recently she was worried about going on a plane when we went to Switzerland.
