Oh dear
My poor blog is very neglected these days. And I do miss it so much.
I think I need to get back into the habit of writing and find my blogs direction.
It will take time and I will get there
Just give me a little time.

Thankful Thursday -offers of meals

This Thursday as I sit in my hospital bed I am so thankful for the offers of help given to my family during this difficult time.

Over the last week The Miner and the kids have been given gifts of meals and offers to come over for tea

For me it means I know the kids are able to eat a bit more varied meals than what The Miner can cook (which is not a lot) and are not just left eating cereal or take-away

These offers have come from various places neighbor, fellow school mum and even the school crossing lady cooked a meal.

So today I am thankful for these offers of food and it is a fitting time on this R U Ok day. Where it seems people are trying to make sure The Miner is ok

I am linking up with Kate for Thankful Thursday

The placenta from hell!

Meet my new best friend. I feel like I am constantly hooked up to this machine.

I am now 30 weeks a big achievement my OB says

I am currently having my third stay in hospital. (oh joy)

My problem is my placenta.
This pregnancy I seem to have scored the placenta from hell!

Most placentas are blob shapes that hang around in the uterus a bit out of the way just doing their job.

Mine has its own agenda.
Firstly it is low and in the way
Secondly it keeps bleeding
Thirdly it has attached itself to my c-section scar
And lastly it isn't a nice blob shape. It has spread itself all over the place (except the back wall) of my uterus.

So it is causing massive issues and making the reality of having a prem baby very real. Which is a very scary thought when to have a baby at 30 weeks means a helicopter ride to the nearest NICU about 3 hours away.

So for the moment I will sit in my hospital bed and beg my placenta to be a little nice


Oh I am attempting to join in with #Blogfor30, and I know it is the third day into the month and this is my first post :s

Down time- kids

What do your kids do for down time?
Do you think they get enough?

This is the battle I have in my head right now.

Do my kids (mainly Mr Magoo) get enough down time.

Time to do something, be creative where there is no pressure

Mr Magoo lives in a world of anxiety
and he puts a lot of pressure on himself to get it right.
So much pressure that his fear of failure is out of control.
Which in turn leads him to be afraid to try.

He is 6 years old and becomes too anxious to try
And usually just shuts down.

So that is why I feel it is so important and vital for kids to get plenty of down time.
Time they can spend with no pressure to perform.

This may be easy and come naturally for some kids
But for others it needs to be pushed   a bit.

Do your kids get enough down time?
