As a parent it is upsetting to hear that your child hates school. School is supposed to be a place of learning, fun and friendships, a secure place where a child can feel comfortable and safe. There’s no point getting into a power struggle every day with your child just to get them through the school gates. Instead get to the root of the problem and help to change your child’s perspective. Here are some ideas to help you work through the problem:
As usual I had our Tesco delivery on Sunday afternoon so I thought I would film a little grocery haul. I love watching these type of vlogs to get some inspiration for meals and finding out new products that I didn't know existed. I tend to always do my food shop with Tesco online purely just for convenience however I often pop into ASDA too if we run out of bits and bobs as it's just 5 minutes down the road from us. I'm thinking of trying Waitrose soon too and perhaps Lidl or Aldi as these are the only other supermarkets local to us so do let me know if you find these better quality or cheaper.
Here's my meal plan for this week: (I decide what we'll have on the day as I usually change my mind depending on what I feel like eating)
Chicken casserole (will use half of the packet of chicken)
Thai Chicken Curry with rice (using the other half of the packet of chicken)
Prawn carbonara with garlic bread
Duck in plum sauce with sweet potato mash & pak choi
Homemade pizza (or shop bought if I'm feeling lazy) and wedges
Takeaway 2 nights of the week
For lunches I will usually have a panini or jacket potato.

It’s been around for more than 20 years now in the UK, so just why are we still playing the National Lottery (sorry, Lotto)? The chances of us winning the jackpot are as slim as they’ve ever been - around 1 in 14 million if so-called ‘experts’ are to be believed, yet thousands of us still play on a weekly basis with the dream of becoming multi-millionaires.
You can put it down to habit, superstition or just the dream of becoming a lottery winner and being able to buy houses, cars, holidays and all the clothes and accessories you can lay your hands on; but the fact of the matter is that 20 years on we still haven’t won...so why bother?
I've never been a great saver, in fact I'll be honest and admit that I have no savings behind me whatsoever! Which makes me annoyed as I could easily have saved up enough for a mortgage on a house if I had really put my mind to it. But from an early age I would spend my wages as soon as I got them, which was a really bad habit that I got into. I could always save up for something if I put my mind to it, for example a new phone, a holiday or a car but I couldn't just leave my money sitting in the bank.
