Pizza anyone for Pizza

Good evening dear friends,

I hope you have had a good day.

Tonight's post is going to be a quick one, I am feeling a bit down this evening. There is nothing hugely wrong but my eight year old has spent most of this evening feeling sad and tearful. He got upset on the way home from school because he tried to pick me a poppy and as it was attached to someone's outside wall I told him he shouldn't pick it. He cried and said he wanted to give me something because he loves me and I turned it away.

He then got upset again this evening because he said some children at school were calling him 'little and weak' and 'slow at running' he also said that no-one likes him. Hearing my little boy say these things and getting so upset is awful to see. He is such a sweet, cheeky little boy who is always incredibly kind, thoughtful and loving and I really can't understand why he struggles at school. I understand that this could partly be back to school nerves but I just want him to be happy.

I stayed at school all day today because something that I was doing ran over and it would have taken too long to walk home and back again.so only about five miles walked today.

My daughter had Brownies tonight and was told that next week she can have her trial night at Guides as her birthday is only three weeks away and at ten they move up to guides.
She is very excited about this as her three best friends are already at Guides.

On our way back from Brownies I popped into the shops to see what I could get on offer:-

  • 4 large cheeses and tomatoes pizzas £2.20 was £5.00
  • 3 tubs of Lurpak butter £.125 each was £3.50 each
  • Loaf of granary bread 55p was £1.20
  • Loaf of crustless bread 40p was £1.00
That was all I bought, the children had one of the pizza's for tea and the other three went into the freezer.
The butter went into the freezer.
The granary bread I will freeze and take out two slices per day for my lunch. The crustless loaf is for the children's lunches.

Well that's about all for tonight folks.

Take care xx


  1. ((Hugs)) It's hard when one of your children feels bad and you feel helpless. I hope he feels better. And you too.

    Good job on the shopping again! The pizzas must be huge if one of them fed all the kids!

    1. I hate it when he feels like this Nathalie, I don't understand why he puts himself down all the time. He seems a bit happier today.

      It was only three of them that ate it and they did have salad with it. The other one had a jacket Potato.
