Recently I was contacted by Nonda about their Zus Smart Car Finder and USB Car Charger. Before receiving it, I didn’t really have a clue how this was going to work in the real world. It sounded great on paper, but would I find my car in the middle of a muddy field of cars?
I found that the whole school thing crept up on me, and I was less than prepared. I had missed most of the first round of open days and some I’d missed completely! Applications were meant to be in by the beginning of January and I was already in November. That might still sound like there’s lots of time to visit schools, but in reality, some schools will only allow tours on open days, as I found out.
About three years ago now, I developed severe anxiety due to a traumatic experience in hospital. To this day, I still suffer with anxiety, but through retraining my thoughts, I don’t suffer anywhere near as badly as I did. My anxiety attacks these days are completely manageable and panic attacks are super rare as I am able to identify the symptoms and can quash them before they start to take hold. Here are my top tips on how I have dealt with my anxiety:
I came across Katy and Sian’s Linky and I thought what a great idea it is. I’ve decided to focus on positives from now on, so every week, I will be posting what made me happy in the week. It’s a nice way to lift mood and remember the good things.
So, my previous posts have very much been opinion posts. I thought I would lighten the mood of my blog and share with you the 5 things I love. Obviously my family are my one big love, so here are the other things that make me happy:
Gosh, all that seems so far away now. Since having a child, people’s attitudes seem to have changed towards me. I’m not able to attend a PR event on a days notice and I’m not able to drink until the early hours anymore. Even if I could, I don’t think my body could take it anymore.
Having suffered from a kidney problem for the past few years, I can certainly relate to those people that just don’t have the motivation to exercise. When you’re poorly or suffering from Chronic Pain, it’s difficult to find that get up and go! It doesn’t just affect you physically, but it gets you mentally too! Anyone…
I’ve had enough now… I ignore you, but you keep coming back! You’re like a stalker, but I can’t get a restraining order for you. I can’t get you ‘put away’… you’re just there. I’m broken.
You don’t just give me pain, you’ve changed me as a person. I feel like a shell of my old self. Not only are you a stalker, you’re a thief! you’ve taken my confidence, my independence and most of my happiness. You make me feel worthless. The one thing you will never take is the love I have for my family. Whilst I have them, you will not stop me trying to get rid of you.
As a Mum, it can be hard to keep the fun going all week, every week. Especially if, like me, you spend a lot of time ferrying your child to various after school clubs to keep them active and healthy! The weekend comes and I’m zonked! I pass the parental control to my husband, who is an incredibly hands on Dad and makes weekends so much fun for my boy. But it’s me that’s missing out.
Towards the end of last year, I was asked to be one of the Panasonic Viera VIP’s. Many of you who follow me on Swanny or Girls n Gadgets Twitter have probably seen me tweet quite a bit about it. I was lucky enough to be invited to IFA Berlin in September to see some…
