Welcome to my weekly Pointshoot post, it is a relatively themeless week, odds and sods if you will. We are in holiday limbo here on count down to the mass departure, endless washing, panic buying, freezer emptying you know the drill.The weekend culminated on a pretty hectic note though with some disturbing Facebook related activities, of which in true blogger form I will most likely dedicate an entire post to it, but for now the photo below should explain. We have also had a poorly boy who required an out of hours appointment – it’s always on a weekend right? Good news is though, despite everyone’s protestations about the NHS and funding, we was seen remarkably quickly, in fact it was possibly easier to get an appointment and be seen on a Saturday then it would be a weekend day at our GP. Either way – LONG LIVE THE NHS.
To all of you holding your baby's hand as you take them to school for the first time, this is for you. I can only imagine the emotion today, good luck to you and them, no doubt they'll love it and it will be an start of an amazing new chapter in yours and their life. As you for you parents, cry into your coffee, that'll you get to drink hot and peacefully…For us, we have another year to go. We are on countdown (not the good kind) this is it, the final year I get my first born with me everyday 😱😭
I've always been rather fussy when it comes to skincare. Not to mention an advertisers dream. Having always gone for the you get what you pay for approach, and not caring too much about how it is made. I don't know if it is my age but I am starting to really care what I put on my skin. So I have invested in some @originsuk skin care, made with the best of nature, responsibly sourced and using the power of plants 🤗 not to mention no added crap on your skin. I am very excited to try it out and make it part of my routine.
Did you see my latest #blog post of #mascara. I'm following my own, well the teen's, advice and trailing @toofaced Better Than Sex mascara. I am loving it the teen really does know her make up! Also taking the top spots are the @lancomeofficial Grandoise and my old faithful Hypnose. If mascara is your thing, these are definitely worth it.
Well this afternoon the plan was to take the kids to Thomas Land, now the bigger kids are safely back at school we can come out of hiding. Of course, it is going to rain 😤. We might chance it anyway but for this morning I am pretending I am already in Portugal requiring any number of these lotions and potions. P.s if you are in the market for a moisturising aftersun I have used this @bananaboatbrand one for years and swear by it! It is one of the only products to actually add moisture to dry over sun and water exposed skin.
*HELP* So yesterday was a strange one. I was awake for hours in the night because a kind lady had alerted me to the fact that someone on Facebook had taken two of my photos. One of me and my little boy when he was a few weeks old and still in hospital and one of him a few months old smiling – you'd be forgiven for thinking he was still a newborn though. Anyway they have used them on their profile with pictures of other poorly babies who apparently aren't theirs (according to the parents of said babies). Now this is disturbing right? Like really disturbing. I and some lovely friends of mine, have all reported this to Facebook but to no avail. There seems to be no appropriate automated option to alert Facebook to what this person is doing, other than to message said person. Oddly I think they're aware of what they have done a message from me falls on deaf ears. Wrong yes? So can anyone help? How the hell do I get Facebook to listen to me and take these photos off of said strangers page? I know perhaps there may need to be some internal questions to be asked about choosing to publish personal photos on the internet but that is for another time. For now I would just like this person stop pretending my child is his.
