An Ill Little Miss P


Over the last few days Little Miss P has been ill. At first Little Miss P just woke up with a small temperature.
I asked if she wanted to go to school as she was going on a school trip to the local forest and she said yes. As I was going to go with them I thought that would be OK so I could keep an eye on her as well as the other kids. But once we got to the forest I put out a rug that I took with us and she just sat on it and didn't move, the only time she moved was to come and stand with me. Luckily we were only there for the morning. At 11.30 the kids sat down and had lunch and had been asking when Lunch was since 10.30.

On the way back to school Little Miss P started crying saying that she can't walk anymore and really needs to sleep and sit down. I was trying to keep her spirits up by saying we are nearly back at school. Once we got back to school we decided to go home and have a cuddle together. The teacher was fine with me taking her home... we even had to wait in the school for 15 mins before we could walk home as she just kept saying she couldn't do it. We had a teacher say did we need a cab but we only live 10 mins down the road so I said no thank you, we with can walk it.

Once at home she sat on the sofa and fell asleep before taking her shoes and clothes off. I did wake her up to get her upstairs and take her temperature and it was 39.7 degrees. So I stuck the fan on her as last time this happened the doc said to get her as cool as you can, even if she is saying she is cold.

That day and night all she did was sleep and cry, I was going to give it 24 hours before taking her to the docs but the next morning she was OK like nothing had happened. I still didn't take her to school as she had not eaten any food yet. By 4pm she had some food, only a bowl of pasta but that's the best food for her in the world.

She is now back to her happy little self, and I love seeing her like that.

Love
Mrs P

Avon Update


This is my third campaign doing Avon and what do I think of it so far. Well, the products I think are actually okay and the price is actually quite a lot cheaper than I first thought Avon was. The bubble bath I have to say is really good but especially the new mango one, oh my it smells lovely and we go through bubble bath quite a lot in this house especially when little Miss P has a bath she has to have loads of  bubbles... what little girl wouldn't like a bath full of bubbles!

I have a few regular customers, one of them is my neighbour a few doors down, the rest of my family and a few of Mr P's workmates. I'm going to be asking a few more people if they want to order anything as down my road I have 36 houses so at least one more person might (all I can do is try).

So far it has been quite simple getting the stock delivered even though I think I must be the first one on the driving list as the delivery guy turns up at 7am on the dot. It's great because it means I can get on with the rest of my day but it means having to be up at about 6.45am and wait for him, when I'm not usually awake at the time in the morning.

This is the first time I will be trying to take something back to Avon this week because one of my neighbour's jeans didn't fit around her feet so she's ordered the next size up (I hope they fit).

I think I have been OK at doing it but I will be doing it every other campaign as I think doing every three weeks is a bit much.

Love
Mrs P

Party Goodies


Its thats time of year where we have our annual barbecue for Summer's birthday, my birthday and for Mr P's birthday. Little Miss P's is on 3rd August, mine is on 5th August and Mr P's is on 21st September. We are in the process of doing up the garden for it as it does need a bit of work doing to it but I have been buying some party stuff as well and this blog post is all about it to show you what I bought.


I went to two shops one of them is called Party Delights, which is the new shop in my little local shopping centre Romford. And I went to Clintons. First I got two sets of balloons, a pack of six that has the number seven on it due to Little Miss P's birthday and another pack of balloons with bright colours and dots on them. I kind of got them more for me than Little Miss P, hehe.  If I remember correctly the balloons were from Clintons and were £2.99 for each packet.

From Party Delights we picked up some Party Bags, invitation party hats and in that range they also had a cake decorating kit so I picked that up as well. Altogether I think I spent about £7 in Party Deilghts.

I'm glad that I finally got a few bits. I really need to get the invitations as Little Miss P only has a week left at school and she needs to hand them out. Last year I let her invite all her class but this year I've made it eight people only because it was a tiny bit crazy last year.
I will be buying some more things and when I do I will show you and of course I will show you some photos from the party. Looking forward to it!

Love
Mrs P

It's already starting

So it's already starting, Summer has a few friends at school. Some of them seem really lovely but there's a few that you can just tell will probably be the bullies when they are older.
They like to be the one in charge, the bossy one, the one that is craving attention all the time and telling other kids they don't want them playing their game... even taking over of the game someone else has created.

I know that children are just learning, just trying to find where they fit in and how to act, but come on now they are about to go into year 3 in September, they should know that acting like this is mean and not how to get friends.

Sometimes I think it starts at home with the Mum and Dad. If they don't get told it's wrong then how do they know? Sometimes  I think the kids just need to have it given back to them to realise that they are doing it and Little Miss P did stand up for herself recently, so I was so proud of her.

She turned around and said, 'Well if  you're going to be mean to me then stop talking me'. Go Little Lady :-) At her age I couldn't do that but I have said to her that she's got to stand up for herself and not get upset by people being like that.

That's my little rant over for now, thanks for reading x

Dear So and So...




Dear Little Miss P School
 When you start a new incentive keep to it. When you say you can buy tickets in the morning on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday we should be able to... I don't think you've had one day yet. If you tell the kids this they will stop trusting you and start thinking that their parents are lying to them... come on school, keep with it. 

 Dear Tesco Clothing
  I have tried to order a pair of school shoes from you because little one's won't last till the end of term, but when I try to put my card details in you saying they are wrong. They are not, all the details are right. Come on, I just wanna get her some shoes. 

 Dear People in my Road
  I know it's the summertime and it's lovely to be outside, but I live in a quiet road, a little cul-de-sac and I don't want cars going around it making lots of noise until 11 o'clock at night. There are children in this road so be respectful.

Dear Little Miss P
Why do I have to say things to you a hundred times, the same thing time and time again. And then you get moaning at me because we haven't got much time left to do certain things. Just listen to me straight away and it'll be a lot easier for us both.

Love
Mrs P

Here is a little video about my new bike,
Hope you enjoy it. Little Miss P x

My Avon World

Hi Guys, this is all about me joining Avon. If you read my last blog post you know already that I started Avon to help Little Miss P get a bit of extra cash for her drama lessons. If you haven't read that blog post I will leave the link here for you.

 A lady came round and she was very nice indeed, but I think she was trying to get to sales to get more money for herself, but I suppose it's her job too. Summer and I need to sell about £100-£120 a month, or every three weeks in this case, and that will give us about £20 cash and that's all she needs for drama.

So first of all we are only doing family and friends, we have handed out about 10 brochures I think or something like that, maybe less, and made orders of about £120, so we did get to our £20 mark. We have to pay an admin fee this month and that is £10 and also the next campaign we have to pay another £6 for admin. But that's fine as we will probably make another hundred pounds again, well at least £85 anyway. Seven separate people made an order and I was one of them, two of our neighbours did, my mum dad and my mother-in-law did, also two of Mr P's work colleagues did... So far so good.

I've put all my orders in online and now I just have to wait for them to turn up, give them out, wait for the new books and get the money for them. I'm going to give it a year and see how we do at it. If it gives us that £20 extra month we'll keep doing it, if not then we will just stop.

Love
Mrs P
