    That’s what I thought, especially if it looks vaguely like him.

  • If you need to still go to this church distance yourself from this person. She’s not a friend, friends don’t make you feel bad like this and just want to spend time with you, they don’t have rules about it. But feeling excluded is awful, it reminds us of being back at school.

    There are probably other people out there who feel excluded too,…[Read more]

  • Don’t forget that people on social media only let you see what they want you to see, it’s not reality.

    You don’t see the day to day dull stuff, where they’re arguing or feel like they’re being taken for granted. There are probably lots of people who wish they had your freedom, freedom to go where you want, when you want and to only answer to…[Read more]

  • Long distance relationships are hard enough when you’re able to at least spend time together, whereas in this situation you can’t even do that. You will never be alone, never be able to talk properly to each other, which will be really tough.

  • I think that now it’s all died down a bit she’s seriously thinking about moving back, it’s a bit difficult though as he’s saying he doesn’t want her to take the kids, although I think he maybe should have thought about that before. She needs her support network around her.

  • I think it’s a bit outdated now, but then alot fo these traditions are, the father of the bride ‘giving’ her away etc so I think it’s mainnly seen as just a tradition, not taken seriously.
    My ex husband asked my dad, my dad told him he’d better ask me 🙂

  • I think a lot of peiople still do these, just maybe not in exactly the same way. I’ve always read to mine and we talk a lot while sat around the table eating. It’s the same kind of thing.
    There’s a lot of modern technology around now but I do think it can be used alongside traditional forms of storytelling etc

  • Thanks everyone, you’ve certainly made me think about it in a different way. I guess kids are pretty good at covering up when there’s something wrong. We’ll sort it 🙂

    Brilliant, Jasmine, thanks for that advice about wordpress.
    I’ve just spent a while looking at your blog, it’s great! It looks good and I like how you write. That piece about being hassled in the street is so true, and made me smiel as I tend to think cleavage or legs too!

    Thank you 🙂

    I will when I’ve set it up and you can all marvel at what a technical genius I am..maybe..;)

  • Well yes, exactly, I kind of meant a tomboy in their mum’s eyes.
    But jeez, I don’t even have to time to spray tan myself, never mind my kids 😉

  • AmyJane replied to the topic Do you blog? in the forum Hobbies & Leisure 8 years, 1 month ago

    Brilliant, thanks, I’ll have a look and see if my brain can manage to find my way around it 🙂

  • This is awful why would any woman want her daughters to grow up with such a high value on appearance? It’s like feminism never happened. It does make me sad and I’d like to think that these girls will rebel one day and turn into little tomboys.

  • Oh, now I’m completely distracted by that guy bending over!
    There seem to be a lot of poeple renewing vows lately and good luck to them, it’s not something I’d think about at the minute although we did have a small wedding partly due ot not having much money at the time so I quite fancy having a fancy party at some point, but it would more…[Read more]

  • That’s quite a big question, I kind of thing we’re here to be the best we can be. To make the most of every day and do things that enrich us and appreciate everything we have and the people around us.
    That today was tomorrow yesterday is today yesterday thing hurt my brain though 🙂

    People are talking about this all over and I saw on twitter that people were tweeting helplines etc so hopefully some good can come from something sad.
    Kiwi that’s so sad, I’m sorry you’ve had direct experience of this.

  • AmyJane replied to the topic New me in the forum Health & Diet 8 years, 1 month ago

    I’m a bit wary of anything too raidcal that requires you to either pay someone or to not eat for two days a week, surely your body thinks you’re starving and holds on tpo every calorie even more?

    I lost weight by cutting down on sugar and eating less processed foods. Bge mindful of what you eat, ie don’t just sit in front of the tv eating, be…[Read more]

    I’m glad you’re feeling better about this. I think that one day soon you’ll look back and smile at yourself. These things happen and they blow over, just as long as you recognize it for what it is, a crush and nothing more, however tempting it is to attribute deeper meaning to it.
    I think that even if you are happily married you maybe, deep…[Read more]

    This is really sad. I’d heard that he’d battled with depression for a long time, as is often the case withfamous comedians but it just goes ot show that having fame and money etc doesn’t protect you from the illnesses that affect us all.
    I feel for his family.
