I got an update from my sister today. She’s really enjoying her holiday, its really hot in the canaries, around 35 degrees c every day.
they took the kids to a zoo and a water park, go carting, and to the beach, there is a peer on the beach, the kids have been jumping off of it into the water and loving it.
Tomorrow she’ll be gone a week already. It went by so fast!
I’m glad she’s enjoying herself. Her partners sister came out there on thursday with her kids, and his other sister will be coming out on monday with her kids, and his mom and dad are there already they went at the same time as my sister and her partner.
We’d have gone too, if my mom was able to travel, but with her COPD she isnt able to fly long distances.
What is your favourite cartoon now and what was it as a kid?
We’re off to a birthday party today. Remember how i said I may not go? Well I changed my mind and I am now going to it.

Today’s prompt: What is one television show or episode from your childhood that you still remember today?
Well, for me, it would have to be the care bears! I loved that show so much when I was a kid! I still do even now! We collect all the dvd’s of the care bears! Our little alters love them as much now as we did when we were kids! Although I think the ones from the 80’s were the best! They dont make those nowadays, but the ones they make nowadays are still really good too! That show was epic! Such a feel good show!
My little cousin Jake made his first communion today. He’s 8. He’s autistic so his parents had it in the house. The after party I mean. I didnt go though. They were going to have a lot of junk food at it, like pizzas, and other fast food, and I didnt want to eat that. I didnt want to jepordise my weight loss. So I chose not to go to the party. Thats ok though. Instead I had my dad make me a pot of chicken curry and I ate thatj for dinner. And I have to say it was absolutely delicious.
At first I was just going to go to the church, to see him make his communion, and then not go back to the house for the party, but then I figured I wouldnt go to either one. So I sent his card with some money in it with my mom. I’ve talked to mom twice today, she said its all going off ok so thats good. I’m happy his special day is going well for him.
So I’ve been trying to get my niece to listen and sleep in my bed tonight, and let me sleep in the upstairs bedroom, which is actually the attic which has been converted into a bedroom.
She’s having none of it though. She wants to sleep up stairs.
But she doesn’t want my mom to sleep upstairs with her and her brother. Unfortunately though mom has to, since her brother is only six and if he wakes during the night, is likely to fall if he tries to go down the stairs, which are really steep.
She’s 11, so that little bit older, and is less likely to wake up during the night.
I said I’d go upstairs to sleep tonight if they wanted me to. I didn’t mind, but no, its a no go. She’s determined to sleep up there.
So what can you do?
Did you know?
That today is Kindergarten Day? This day celebrates the birthday of Friedrich Froebel (1782), who began the first kindergarten in 1837 in Blankenburg, Germany. The first kindergarten in a public school in the U.S. was started in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1873.
