I think WordPress is on the blink again!
I predominately shop online, so I find this site very useful for raising funds for charity – without paying more than I would have done, with what I was going to purchase anyway. In fact, free donations are collected for your chosen charity! I have chosen Celia Hammond Animal Trust (UK Animal Rescue Charity), but you are not limited to animal charities.
It doesn’t cost you a penny extra. When you shop the easyfundraising way with one of our 3,113 shops and sites they give us a commission for your purchase. We turn that into a donation and give it to your good cause. Easy!
Not sure if there is a scheme like this anywhere else in the world, but it’s worth you having a look.

Yesterday, when i came home from work, while i was at the door, my son asked me again.
son: mom, was i born brown?
i: why are you asking me this question again, we had this conversation already.
son: i know, i know..i was thinking because if you said apples come from apple tree and oranges come from orange tree..how come they change in color after a few days?
i: what do you mean they change in color?
son: like the red apples and banana on the table, after a few days it gets darker, or gets to be browner because it gets rotten…am i like that? am i getting darker each day like the fruits on the table
i: son, sometimes you get browner because of the sun, the more you expose yourself to the sun, the browner you get..but you are still brown in color…
son: oh! how…

So… I’ve just got back home from A&E/ER.
Max thought it would be a good idea to shove part of a toy up his left nostril – whilst we were watching TV, waiting for his new craze, Power Rangers, Dino Supercharge.
I power-walked like crazy to the hospital, as it was quicker than calling a cab/taxi, ambulance, or waiting for public transport. Even if I did have a car, there would be nowhere to park, or the the car park at the hospital would be extortionate.
By the time we got to the hospital, I was an emotional wreck, and burst into tears as I was talking to the nurse. Max on the other hand, was saying “Don’t cry mummy, I’m OK. It’s alright”. Shame on me.
Anyway, Max was telling the doctor not to touch him, or he’ll call the police, and that he should leave me alone, because I’m his mummy. My very own bodyguard! To cut a long story short, I would have had to go to a different hospital tomorrow to have the part removed if they didn’t try today. Oh, hell no. So, I told the hospital staff that we were going to have to do a take down on Little Yum-Yum. The thought of spending all day in hospital was a no-no! It took two nurses and myself to hold him down, and a doctor to take the part of the toy out with a tweezers. The doctor got a telling off for going against Max’s wishes. In Max’s own words “You didn’t listen to me. I told you to leave me alone”.
Fortunately, all is now well.
We left just before 3.00 pm and were gone for approximately two and a half hours. We were there for as long as we were because Max refused to be touched. Man, this child can talk for Britain.
I am so grateful for the NHS and its staff.
I will destroy anyone verbally, who dares to put the NHS down; a system we are so fortunate to have. Staff are amazing and patient. Care is outstanding.
They are second to none. ❤

Lastnight, while we were having dinner, my son asked me this question. I was really surprise of the question but i nonchalantly responded: why do you ask?
son: i am just curious…when i was born, was i already brown?
i: of course you are already brown, why? dont you like it?
son: i like it, i was just wondering as to why others are lighter and darker than me..some people say to me, i am tan..what does tan mean? does it mean brown?
i: yes, that is what they meant.. they are telling you that they like it..
son: ahh, am i brown because i wash my hands and shower a lot of times?
I was trying not to laugh while explaining to him because i know this is a very important question to him: son, that is your color because that is our family’s color..it is just like the…

I just left Church after attending Mass, and realised snow is finally here in London, although it is not settling – yet. My Little Yum-Yum will be very pleased when I collect him from preschool, as he has been asking me to “make it snow” so he can make a snowman. Although I am not a fan of snow myself, it is beautiful, and am grateful for anything that does or will put a smile on my son’s face.
Stay warm everyone. ❤
I cannot believe this blog has been going for three years (6th January).
It has been a major part of my Healing Journey, and without it (and my son), I wouldn’t have come as far as I have.
My WP Family have been amazing. Thank you all for your support. I really appreciate it. ❤
