So long 2011 onto 2012

I may exhibit middle class values or traits but you don't know is I keep my personal family issues at bay normally.

My family has issues that would indeed keep the EastEnders script writers going forever. I am the product of a broken & violent home yes.

Do I have mother and father issues yes.

Do I appear apathetic sometimes? yes and people just don't get me.

Do I give a monkeys ? Well actually I do as I am sensitive but for 2012 I am getting a back bone and being less sensitive.

Is it right to document my family woes? Not so sure on that one , yes you would be crying your eyes out but at what cost?

So for 2012 I will concentrate on me, my family (the three of us) and my blog.

Diet Chef Review



Dieting effectively is a huge challenge to do yourself - getting the right balance of nutrition without under- or overdoing calories counts can feel like a full-time job. That's why delivery diets seem like a great idea: nutritionist-planned, pre-set meals dropped at your door so that you all you have to worry about is eating them. But many of these diets are prohibitively expensive: that's where Diet Chef comes in. I had a friend who was trying the Dukan diet and what she was doing was going to work out more expensive than diet chef.
At £39 per week, the cost of Diet Chef is probably not too much more than what you're already spending on your weekly shop...if not less, if you opt for restaurant meals now and then.
The Pro's There 's a huge variety of meals - porridge and granola for breakfast, soups or milkshakes for lunch, and stews and pasta for dinner , plus a couple of snacks, like granola bars and oat crisps - and nothing needs to be refrigerated (it comes in vacuum-packed bags), so it's easy to stash meals in your work bag when you're on the go. If you do the diet for a month or more, you won't be eating the same thing every day by any means (unless you want to, of course as you can choose and alter what you have).
The downside I suppose the food is pretty basic but it is too give you a kick start and it does offer you tips and advice and recipes. You have to remember that no diet is just going to work with out you putting some effort into it. So if you sneak the odd piece of cheese here and there and the odd glass of wine you are basically not going to get anywhere.
The minuses? The food is not amazing -and I got pretty bored with it pretty fast. You do have to supplement the supplied meals with fresh fruits and veg and milk (or soy milk) which means that it is not quite as cheap as it sounds...and also means that you do have to make visits to the supermarket, which can be tempting and dangerous! I think the breakfast were the worse to be honest as they were very very boring and Breakfast is meant to set you up for the day.
The diet is very low in calories (1200 a day) so I felt hungry a lot of the time when I was doing Diet Chef...but you can pretty much eat as much fresh fruit and veg as you like, so it was possible to take the edge off with an apple or water . And, OK, it IS a diet. Being hungry should not have come as a surprise. Though surely this might take you off the straight and narrow path of dieting?.
The final important point: did I lose weight? Even with a couple of cheats (giving up cheese seemed to be impossible it kept whispering to me from the fridge), yes! In just a week I ended up about four pounds lighter.

Was I able keep it off once I finished my Diet Chef regime? Yes it had given me a kick start and left me with the thought I really would not be wanting to pay £39 a week for myself as factoring my family shopping into this it would be an expensive weekly shop.
( Disclosure I was sent a weeks supply for review)

The Ultimate Christmas Meme .. honest I promise you...


I am Organised for Christmas the death of the High Street can belayed squarely at my door , yes go blame me... I Shopped online for everything. Even wining prizes for my Sister in law ,nieces and nephews ( I am tight?!)

Mulled wine after I made my own my one culinary success .. Egg nog ? is that like Noggin the Nog? it is isn't it?

When do you put your decorations up?

I nudge nudge .. direct said Mr T to the task in hand last week, somewhere around the 12th. This has been his his tradition as his dad's birthday is on the 12 th of December! I work in a school it has been Christmas since early November . My sons Christmas tree had a part in my school play and I forgot to bring his tree back home = bad mum

They come down early too Mr T is supertiscous have never seen him move so quick on any other day of the year if getting Christmas decorations was an Olympic sport he would indeed win a gold medal bless him ( cough)


What are you having for Christmas dinner?

I'll not lie I can't cook I am off my Christmas dinner down the local pub Mr T is breathing a sigh of relief!




What’s your favourite Christmas tradition?

Oh is it because no women have been nominated for it .. mmm probably...insert (swear word ... husband)

Have you ever gone carol singing?

How do you decorate your Christmas tree?


With my hands! No really I let my child loose and then go rearrange it when he's not looking .. ( only a little bit ) I have decorations he made in reception etc which we use as well . The ones we bought whilst holidaying in Florida in the middle of August and of course the extra baubles when we forgot where we put the decorations one year.

Thanks to http://thefivefsblog.blogspot.com/ for tagging me and keeping me sane whilst Mr T put the football on instead of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.

Christmas Carol.. Rollie as the Ghost from Christmas past

Even Rollie has to get into the Christmas spirit and Rollie's favourite Christmas book has to be Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Which is rather apt as I spent all my childhood summers down in Broadstairs as that was where my Grandparents lived . And as you know Charles Dickens did stay at Bleak House and Broadsroars just celebrate the Dickens festival.





So here We have Rollie as  'The Ghost from Christmas Past'

 Merry Christmas you daft but miserable cat !

Right up my Quality Street


The new limited edition bar combines four Quality Street The Purple Ones with their smooth milk chocolate, signature creamy caramel centre and whole hazelnut. This expansion of a Quality Street favourite will come as a special treat for the many fans of The Purple One.
My Purple Bar, with an RRP of 65p, benefits from vibrant packaging which pays tribute to the heritage of the brand. Although the Quality Street brand, launched in 1936, reaches the grand age of 75 in 2011, it shows no sign of slowing down.  Over the last year the total brand value has risen by 14% to be worth a massive £98m. With the launch of the limited edition My Purple Bar, the brands success is set to continue.


This is where I am meant to show you my various pictures of 'My Purple Bar' in various poses I am sorry to say I didn't take any. Remember how I said i coaxed J with some chocolate when I took a picture of him in the Ski Jacket post. Well the chocolate I used was "My Purple Bar' I have a very very nice picture of the wrapper.


And J did say it was nice which when in  teenager speaks = that was absolutely mouth watering and totally gorgeous!.

Lytess Corrective Shapewear


I have been wearing Lytess a smarter brand of shapewear. Lytess takes shapewear into the realm of science with their embedded microencapsulated ingredients that are released as you wear their pieces. It’s intelligent shapewear for the modern woman, complete with that je ne sais quoi of French luxury.

Lytess is what is known as corrective shapewear this was part of my mission to looking leaner, each line provides different long-term benefits for your body. Each piece of Lytess shapewear slims without being constrictive. They contain millions of microcapsules that release on contact with your firming ingredients such as Copaiba, Elemi resin, Rodhysterol, Caffeine to mobilize fats and Shea Butter and Sweet Almond to moisturize the skin, thanks to a revolutionary French Technology of Microencapsulated Cosmetics. As the garment is worn, the ingredients are gradually and evenly released onto the skin.

The Lytess mirco-massage line moistens and softens your skin while providing deep tissue nutrition and helping get rid of fat in your system. The specially woven fabric responds to your natural body movements and helps massage and tone your skin. When worn on a regular basis, this line of shapewear will help treat cellulite and improve your skin.

Lytess corrective shapewear uses caffeine and shea butter to help you slim down. The caffeine helps mobilize fats, and the shea butter moistens your skin and helps it absorb the caffeine. When worn six days a week, test models lost as much as four inches off their waist size!




And to be honest it out me in the correct mind set to get fit with acticities such as walking , scooting ! and even running. It has certainly helped me the only down side is now that I have lost a little weight around my hips and thighs etc due to wearing these and excersing , the ones that i wear are starting to slip down !


And even though they are £49.99 it has given me a starter to a healthy lifestyle and a new way of life. This approach may not work for everyone but it has for me and I am pleased with it.
( I was given two pairs of these for purposes of review )

Mookie Blue pro Glider Scooter ideal for Gross Motor Skills

Young children as young as 3,4 or 5 need lots of opportunities for physical activity both for their good health and for skill building and lets be honest who ever heard of a still toddler / young child? At this age , children are busy developing gross motor skills- learning to use the large muscles in their legs, arms and trunk to run throw, catch and kick. they are also working on fine motor skills, although these develop a bit later than gross motor skills. And with the large absence of ' big' play equipment in many of our schools nowadays it is up to us parents to help develop these skills.







The Mookie Blue Pro Glider Scooter has two wheels at the front to increase stability. This practical design is perfect for helping children to develop balance and co-ordination skills before moving on to a 2 wheeler. The unique tilt action steering facilitates easy turning and amazing tricks! The strong deck and PVC wheels also give extra durability. The multi-hinged foldable handle bar system and neck enables this scooter to take up the smallest space possible when folded. It’s also lightweight making it ideal for easy transportation

Features:
  • 3 wheels for stability
  • Flexible neck for easy turning
  • Unique and elegant design
  • Strong deck for a safe ride
  • Maximum rider weight: 20kg
For ages 3+ years

This is a brilliant product that will help with a child's motor skills and balance just before starting school.

Schwartz Mulled Wine

Yes Yes I know it's only November and the Grinch patrol may nail me to a Christmas tree but I couldn't resist this.






















I added the two sachets and 200ml of water and kept it not quite boiling for ten minutes.



An arty shot of the mulled wine with sliced Orange.



It is well worth buying these satchets if you like mulled wine as its not to overpowerig there is a more powerful recipe on their website that involves orange juice and Brandy!.




Thanks to Schwartz for sending a Christmas care  package to do this even down to the orange. And don't laugh they even sent  me the ingredients to make cookies which I shall be making later this week.

Does this bother me well actually it does. I have had countless great advice that comments don't matter you are blogging for you. Well I am sorry I am blogging for more than me, I do hope that what I say occasionally matters. And I hope that on occasion people might say you have really helped me, which they have on the odd occasion.

I may be bleating on but it's my blog and it's my rules now isn't it?

The Pingi moisture traps are easy to recharge in the microwave oven.When the patented indicator changes from blue to pink, full saturation hasbeen reached and Pingi is ready to be recharged. Good for the environmentand for your wallet. Within a few minutes, Pingi is again ready for use.

Brabantia Vintage Blue


Just as the soft pastel colours of the 1960s gave way to bolder more confident hues in the ‘70s, so Brabantia is reviving the blue-jeans era as its inspiration for Vintage Blue, a deep and bold colourway for its steelware collection.
Drawing on a look from 40-years ago, Brabantia has blended its smooth forms with this confident interior-accent that will look highly distinctive against a minimalist or contemporary kitchen interior such as white or industrial stainless steel, or indeed a more eclectic and retro style kitchen.
Vintage Blue features across a range of Brabantia waste bins, including the 30 litre Touch Bin® with a Matt Steel lid finished with its highly practical Fingerprint Proof coating, and five Pedal bins in 5 litre, 12 litre, 20 litre, 20 litre Slimline and 30 litre sizes. All take Brabantia’s size-matching bin liners with tie-tapes to make emptying, sealing and removing the rubbish a hassle-free task.

Your eye is just drawn to the Vintage Blue!




Mr T said "Does this mean I have to decorate now"  YES.


Using the proper Brabantia bin liners there is no unsightly over hang of the liner !


Sorry you  have to stare at my rubbish ( not my blog you understand) but the rubbish in my bin . You see how neat it all looks!


The old Brabantia bin without the proper bin liners oops !
Prices start from around £6.50 for a Storage Canister, and all items are covered by a 10 year guarantee for complete consumer confidence.
Brabantia products are available from leading retailers, including high street department stores, superstores, quality independent housewares and kitchen product specialists.  For stockist details, please contact the Brabantia sales department on 0845 602 4877 or visit Brabantia’s website www.brabantia.com.

School trips the increasing cost now its the Olympics!

I am sorry that this is a rehash of an old post but I am getting hacked off with my son school. Now it is my choice to send him skiing at £750 and the rugby tour at £250 . Now he could have gone on a football trip at £530 to Alicante but thankfully he didn't want to go on that !. I have just received an email about him going to the Olympics ( a great opportunity I agree) but at what point do you draw the line.? If my son went on every single trip he would up missing a month of school.




Below is a insert of the email my son's school sent me!



'Dear Parent/Guardian,
I am writing to inform you of an opportunity to take 1 or 2 groups of students to the London 2012 Olympics.  This has come about from an invitation I received from Thomas Cook on Thursday specifically aimed at school groups.  As you can appreciate, this is a rare chance to witness some of the world's best athletes performing in our own country.
I am fully aware of the current financial situation and the pressures that your son/daughter place on you regarding trips etc.  Therefore I would like to gauge interest from you without raising student expectation  in the first instance.  Prices are based on a two day trip including coach travel, overnight accommodation, breakfast and tickets to two events.  The cost is £170 - £350 depending upon which days/events we choose.  The events are scheduled between 27th July and 12th August.
As these offers will book quite quickly, I would like a prompt response.  Please could you e-mail the following address by Wednesday at 18:00 with the information if you are interested for your son/daughter to have the chance to go to London 2012.
•·         Your upper limit of cost for the event
•·         Your son/daughters name and form (e.g.  Joe Bloggs 8BUR) AS THE MESSAGE SUBJECT'


Is this too much ?






What price do you put on education if you go to a state school. There is the constant demands from an early age for trip money. If you do not pay your child will suffer blah blah. Now this is hard enough in this economic climate if you have one child but one if you have more the pressures are even greater. Now J my son is a truly able sportsman



Now its been a constant ask all through his school life so far for trips,charity , school PGL but I was not prepared for the shook of the cost of senior school. Now J does not go to private school just a academy school but it s like private school. For the off there was trip after trip  first skiing, then cricket , three lots of rugby, singing . Now I am pleased my son is talented I really am but I felt the need to draw the line somewhere so I said NO to the rugby tour. He was a little crestfallen but he got on with his life, We all have to make sacrifices in this world.

Then came the school sports award night. J had already won various certifaces for academic achievement being best in his class etc glowing report etc. Model child, etc not stereo typical of Only
child syndrome. Well on the night he picked up award after award culminating in the sports personality of the year. Basically the teacher said if there was a tiddlywinks team he's be in . Now faced which this pride how could I refuse to NOT send him on the rugby tour. So another cost for me so far these trips total up as £750 for skiing, £120 for cricket, £350 for rugby not to mention £50 for another rugby trip ,£25 for singing trip and another £25 for another rugby trip . I try not to  add it up, knowing it is such a scary amount. And all this is before spending money, clothes etc. This is where i cam e up with a plan to sell stuff on that internet auction site. Good opportunity to clear out etc and help pay for all these trips. First up was Mr T's organ he didn't use it any more , it was just there gathering dust. I know it was hard but I just had to let it go.....


There you've seen it Mr T's organ, also I started selling his train set as well. All little amounts help, the school were puzzled as I started paying off these little amounts and indeed ring to ask me was this right. You do what you have to do so your child has a better life etc, but at what cost.?

Duracell Chargers


I was lucky enough to win some football tickets to see Spain V England they were the best seats in the house. Capello was only a few feet away.




 I had a brilliant view to observe all the teams warming up , from a fitness point of view you do understand.



 They were Club Wembly seats , never have I been in such brilliant seats in Wembly of course my husband and son were over the moon. I was grateful that we had the Duracell charger to keep my son's ipod touch going as there is nothing worse then a bored child!
