My 11th Year in UK

Today is my 11th year since I stepped into the UK. I have a lot of good and bad memories during these years. Reflecting on it, it has been a painful journey of learning as an adult. I was very well protected and looked after by my parents and was not very well house trained – I didn’t know how to cook a normal meal, wash clothing and do simple DIY.
My career has never been the same. I was working in Charing Cross Hospital as a Theatre Nurse where I scrubbed for gender reassignment and colo-rectal cases amongst other types too. They weren’t particularly fun jobs as my views were always of bum holes.

Went to Yonex Demo Event to meet England Players!

My husband is a real badminton nut and he plays his sport every week without fail. He is currently looking at improving his skills and updating his gear. This is written by him about the Yonex Demo Event he went to.
Mr C:
I’m a local league badminton player and have been playing badminton since school. The key equipment in the game is obviously the racquet. At a beginners level, the type of racquet you use arguably doesn’t make as big of a difference to your game than perfecting your technique, movement and tactics. As you get better, the type of racquet plays an increasing factor as players will have preferences over whether racquets are head light or head heavy and how flexible or stiff the shaft is.

Ms C starts Reception

Time has flown by and now Ms C is starting reception. I can’t believe that my little girl has reached her next milestone. This time last year, it was Mr K who started ‘big school’. Now I don’t know what to do with myself during the day. Well, not really. LOL. After 8 weeks of Summer holiday, I’m tired of entertaining them and am so ready for them to go back.
My princess became a big girl!

Our Entry Kids Capture the Colour Challenge

Following the success of last summer’s photo blogging competition Capture the Colour, Travel Supermarket has teamed up with Venture Photography to launch ‘Kid’s Capture the Colour’, an exciting challenge for children aged 15 or under to get creative and photograph the world around them.
I was the 101st applicant. Fortunately for us however, someone dropped outgiving us the opportunity to get a free digital camera from Travel Supermarket to get my children to capture the colours of red, blue, green, yellow and white while on their summer holidays.
The first photo is the RED colour. This is the shoe house in Wonderland Midlands theme park. My son and I stood on the steps while waiting for everyone to clear off before we took this shot. Luckily, we didn’t need to wait for too long. Inside this shoe there are a lot of children and the old woman. It is based on the nursery rhyme – There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe.
