#Zerowasteweek 1st-7th September

Just want to keep getting the message out there about #Zerowasteweek as I think it is a great cause and really want to raise awareness. We already recycle but guess you get lazy not looking into what else we can do to reduce waste and probably recycle more.
Please just take some time to look at the website and make a pledge even a small one is important and helps get the message out there. Check out the website zerowasteweek

Make your pledge today here

Zero Waste Week

I am happy to tell you all that I have made a pledge for Zero Waste Week, I am pledging to throw nothing away all week, I am going to recycle everything. Watch out for some interesting projects that week and our efforts to bin nothing. My bin is gonna stay empty all week.
Check out the Zero waste  website  here and let me know if you are planning to join in.
We try really hard all the time to recycle and not bin much, we upcycle and are very careful with what we waste. But not putting anything in the bin for the week will be a huge challange which I am looking forward to. It is also the last week of the school holidays so should be fun.

A very sad day

When I heard the news this morning about Robin Williams, I felt extremely sad, isn't it strange to feel such empathy for someone I never met but was a part of my life. I loved his films and remember Mork and Mindy well, I loved that show and loved him in every part he played.
Reading some news reports today am extremely sad to hear he may have committed Suicide, I have suffered with depression myself but have never been that low, but have helped many people who have. I have had many friends and family over my life that have suffered terribly with depression some who have tried to take their own lives. Depression is not spoken about enough and can be swept under the carpet by some families. A recent conversation with my own Nan who thought taking anti-depressants wasn't necessary and people should just get on with it, depression is all in their head, now she is not ignorant just the way her mother brought her up but I wish my own Father had taken his anti-depressants instead of turning to drink to cope with the pain he was suffering- something none of us could help him through and psychologists were useless to him well the ones he met where. I am afraid he was diagnosed with Cancer before we could find the right person for him the drink won and then the Cancer took him away. He suffered for so many years anyway I have totally gone off point.
My heart goes out to Robin Williams Family I can not imagine their pain, I am sure they have so many questions that will be left unanswered until they all meet again.
RIP Robin Williams you were an amazing person, actor and you will bring us all laughter for years- Thank you.

The beautiful French countryside

On  our way to our holiday in France we found ourselves in the middle of nowhere but loving the view, and the fact it is all so flat.

The nerves are kicking in

It's Sunday afternoon and I am curled up with Mr Fussy watching Toy story 3 and I have that awful feeling in my stomach. My appeal for the school I want for Mr Fussy is on Tuesday and I know that 98% of them don't succeed so I know I am set to have my heart broken, and whilst the school he is going to is good and he will settle in fine. I have to admit I have brought up a very confident little man who will make friends very easily as he does where ever we go. But I look at what I will be losing and it makes me very sad. I will be losing a network of friends who have become very helpful. We have exchanged play dates and they have helped me out when my Partner has hospital appointments etc, all this has taken me a long time to build up and I am unsure that I will find this at his school but even if I do it will take a long time to create the trust. In fact one my friends is having him on Tuesday for the appeal. I just wish that the council could be a little human in the selection of school's for our children. I very much feel as though I am being punished for bringing up a well rounded child and that because I have not needed to ask for help (believe me I am worn out all the time) and that I can cope and have not needed social services involved or the school. I didn't sleep well last night and won't until the outcome and although I am not getting my hopes up I am not looking forward to hearing the NO.
