This week my Word of the Week is:
I have been taking part in Blogtober16 ....A post every day for the whole of October....I usually post daily anyway but the prompts and themes have really got me thinking....I have written a lot about myself this week which I don't normally do....I usually just write about the girls and general family life.....I don't like to write about myself, I find myself boring but this week writing and sharing the posts has been fun.....I have actually enjoyed it even though I have cringed sharing old photos and memories....I have also discovered a whole heap of new blogs to read which is fantastic.
We found out from one of Ellie's friends that she is not exactly getting bullied but some girls in her class are verging on being nasty and excluding her....It's horrible. They are 9 and 10 year old's. Ellie see's the little clique which has been formed with about 4 or 5 girls and wants to be part of it....Ellie didn't say anything to Stu and I because it was "no big deal". We have tried to explain you can't be best friends with people if they don't want to be but it's hard....Ellie has always been better friends with the boys in her class, there is more of them than girls but they are at an age now where they think that girls are not cool. I know it's just a phase but it's heartbreaking....
Ellie's little friend said to us that the girls are nasty and said he would take Ellie to speak to the teacher. Ellie didn't want to but he made her and now it has all been sorted...The teacher has had a word with the girls but didn't mention Ellie's name....She said you have to be nice to people even if you don't want to be friends with them....So far so good....There has been no more nastiness. It's good to know someone in the class is looking out for my girl.
This year I have struggled to figure out what to get Becky for her main present at Christmas.....She is so hard to buy for and spends most of her spare time on the Xbox, phone, laptop or tablet....The answer came to me in the Smyths catalouge which came through my door earlier in the week! A Virtual Reality Headset which she puts her phone in....I have no idea how they work or what you do but Stu thought it was a good idea and he knows more about technology than I do....lol She has mentioned these before but I thought they cost hundreds and hundreds of pounds and dismissed the idea....Oops.
There has also been a few more little discoveries which have made me smile....Polar Bears are on the new updated Minecraft which are so cute....Tesco have their Frozen Christmas party food in and there is a new Pie Face game....Pie Face 2: Showdown!!
