Winter is fast approaching, and this time of year is packed with fun activities to engage in, yet so many of us go into hibernation mode. Indeed, winter can be a time of inactivity where we stay curled up indoors mostly watching TV next to a radiator or open fire.
A day later than planned, we’re joining the book tour for Jackson Saves an Owl written by Darren Garwood and illustrated by Carl Osborne.
On a normal morning drive to work, I was hit by another vehicle. I was in a car crash. I honestly had never experienced anything like it before, and not just the crash but the adrenaline, the shock, the emotions afterwards. And most importantly, what was going to happen next. I was completely oblivious. I had people around me I could ask for advice or what happened when they had a similar experience, but it’s a pretty personal one isn’t it? Dealing with the insurance companies, sorting out your vehicle and also looking after yourself. Maybe there was physical injury, or PTSD or anything that comes with a particularly distressing event like this.
As a parent, there are so many things that you need to think about when it comes to looking after your kids. And, one of the biggest things you can do is revamp and rework your kid’s bedroom. This is an exciting place for a child when they are growing, and creates a safe, fun haven for them to enjoy being a child. So, you need to make sure you give them the best bedroom you can.
Each month, I’m joining in with the 5 things I’ve loved linky, created by the wonderful Rachael & Georgia. As I explained in May’s Linky Post, the aim of the post is to think and write about 5 things I’ve loved this month that are NOT parenting related. We all know a lot of our time is consumed by our sweet, needy, adorable little humans, but what makes us tick? What’s been floating our boat? I have to say I’m loving reading what others have been enjoying and it’s so wonderful to see that everyone is taking time for themselves and doing nice things they love other than being a parent.
