If you were given the choice to spend £250 ($400) on one dress or £250 on one dress, a jacket, shoes and accessories what would you do?
Add to the mix that the money isn’t yours. In fact, not only is it not yours, it’s not anyone’s. That works because you are being given the items for free.
Back to school.
Three harmless words. Together, however, their alliance packs quite a punch.
I know the holidays can be hard for some. Working mothers have to fund potentially expensive
childcare or face being penalised for their absence. SAHMs with small children
are faced with endless hours of organised play which can be exhausting as well
as financially draining.
Communicating and Negotiating via Facebook
My daughter has 691 friends on Facebook. I’m not sure that’s even a lot in the world of teenage social networking. One of her friends has 728.
Thanks to mobile uploading she also has 1593 photos.
Between Facebook chatting with a small proportion of those friends, managing her photos, studying for her A levels (final exams), eating, sleeping and just generally having a life you wonder how she has any time to talk to her mother.
You know it’s summer, when you look outside and see the vibrant colours bursting forth in the surrounding landscapes.
These are some of the flowers I see in my own garden. Come and have a peek.
Two of my kids are desperate for mobile phones (cell phones in the US). They are almost 11 and 13. Most of their friend’s have them already and they feel hard done by (“complete losers” in their words) because up until now we have said no. They also want to go on Facebook. Again, it’s the friends.
When my eldest daughter started at her sixth form college, after years of private school, she got labelled “posh”.
For one thing she said “prep” instead of “homework”.
Posh kids say “mummy I haven’t got any prep tonight.” Apparently.
I bought her one of those old school badges you can get in novelty shops that said “posh” on it. She wore it on the lapel of her jacket with pride. It became a bit of a joke in our family.
If you met us you would know instantly that we are anything but posh.
