Teen, Get your head out of the fridge!

At least 10 times a day I see this….


My teen with his head in the fridge!

No matter what meals he’s had, there he is back in the fridge, looking for snacks.

Everyone knows teen boys are constantly eating, and having a variety of choice is essential to get a healthy mix.  One thing our teen does love is cheese, in fact there is always cheese in the fridge, and at the minute, thanks to MU cheese we have a fair stash.

His favourite snack of the moment is pizza bagel



A toasted bagel, a spread of ketchup and slices of cheese. MU discs are excellent for this due to their shape and thickness, but you have to be fast in this house to get a photo.

Pizza bagel is also great for school lunch as it’s delicious cold.

With a mixture of fruit, and the meat and veg we force-feed him he eats, his long lean frame seems to be growing well and being a keen footballer he uses up a lot of energy.

So thanks again MU for our selection, it went down a storm, and we’ll definitely be buying the discs again.

The long wait.



I sit waiting in the  rain, not that I mind the rain,  I like the way it makes everything shiny.

Trains come and go as I wait, people are so busy,  passing me by as they hurry on their way.

There’s not as many uniforms now, at first the platform was a sea of uniforms flooding from trains returning home from the war.

That’s why I’m waiting,  waiting for Bill,  so we can set off on our new life together.

But the trains have all gone, the uniforms have gone,  but I’m still here,  waiting.

Who’s behind your charity shop.


When you’re out shopping do you ever pop into a charity shop for a rummage. We all love a little nosey around them and maybe pick up a bargain but where does your money go?  Do you stop to think what’s behind a Charity Shop name.

Claire House offers a sanctuary for children and young people who live with a  life threatening or life limiting condition. It provides a home-from-home environment for children, young people and their families, allowing them to forget about the daily routine and simply have time to enjoy themselves.

Every year, the shops raise hundreds of thousands of pounds to help support the work of the hospice, enabling them to provide first class care to children and young people as well as support their families.

Fundraising is vital in the support of Claire House,  and one their fun upcoming events is


The Claire House Splash Dash in September is a 5k fun run with a difference, you will start in your brightest white t-shirt and as you pass each kilometre point you will be pelted with different colours of powdered paint, until you finish the course looking like a human rainbow.

If you would like to support Claire House, or for more information on the Splash Dash, click on the logo’s above.

Next time you’re out shopping have a look at the charity behind your shop.
