Consider sending your Year 11 child away with NCS this Summer.

Picture it now, the Summer holidays are upon us and your 16/17 year old are being argumentative and really irritating you, up half the night, sleeps half the day, rarely off their electronic gadgets. Got an answer for everything, that is if you can get more than a grunt out of them. If this sounds like your household then read on. I may just have an idea that will be the answer to your prayers.

Teenagers are a strange breed and a law unto themselves. Part of being a teenager is to push the boundaries not just at home but in school and out in the community as well. Teenagers need help to learn what those boundaries are and part of this learning process is being away from home and doing things for themselves. Learning to be independent often starts at a young age with play group and nursery, but carries on all through childhood.

I, as a grandparent, feel the children of today do not challenge themselves in the way we did as children and that modern children are more protected and this is not always a good thing. Children need to challenge themselves, risk assess for themselves and to use an old fashioned saying "learn the hard way".

Our children need to learn life skills by putting themselves outside their comfort zone in a safe and supervised environment. I know when my own children were young we lived in a designated area of deprivation and I was a volunteer in an urban aid funded project that ran holiday play schemes for the local children. They got a lot out of this and it was great to see them blossom and grow. My daughter was eleven the year she was put in charge of the tuck shop. From picking the volunteers to work with her, going to the cash and carry and deciding what to buy as well as counting and banking the money. While there was an adult with her for her safety the responsibility for it being stocked and run well was all hers. Children thrive with challenges and she still has fond memories of that time.





 I am sure the majority of us have heard of The Duke of Edinburgh awards (DofE) and the challenges and opportunities this offers young people but I have to say I have not heard about National Citizen Service (NCS)  before now.

What is NCS?

NCS say they are more than a youth programme, they are a network of grassroots organisations that offers unique experiences that has a positive impact to enable 16 and 17 year olds to become better individuals and better citizens. It is open to children in England and Northern Ireland. It varies in length from 2-4 weeks and takes place in school holidays. The course brings together people from different backgrounds to offer a unique shared experience . The course is residential and the young people participate in community based projects and over seven million hours of time has been put into communities.

NCS was piloted with just 158 children in 2009, became a government backed programme in 2011, and now they have had almost 400.000 children go through the scheme, making them the fastest growing youth organisation for a century. This year more than 100,000 teenagers from all walks of life will get together to develop skills and build community projects. It is not to late to add your teenager to that number. There are still places available for Year 11s to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity this summer. To sign up now go to the NCS website.  

NCS appreciate that families may have other arrangements, but this can be worked round with various dates available. Why not go and have a look at their website for further information so that they can arrange a spot on a programme at a time that suits your family?




The course puts the children through a series of challenging activities. This progressive journey takes them out of their comfort zone and hands over more responsibility as the course progresses. They learn to connect with their local community and both the individual as well as the community benefits. It is amazing value for money, for the funding government as well as the community, with £1.15 to £2.42 of benefits back to society for every £1 spent. This makes them better individuals, better future employees and a valued member of the local community. A sense of pride and feeling appreciated are a great emotional boost.

The course itself is easily affordable with all food, accommodation and travel costs included at a maximum cost of £50. Now I don't know about you but I could never feed my teen for that little during school holidays. They are allowed to take minimal spending money but they recommend no more than £10 per person. There are bursaries available for some children, this is calculated on each individual young persons needs.

The website informs you that the children do not get their mobile phones during activity time, while some of them may moan about this I think it is a good thing to get them doing something non electronic.

The world is a changed place since I was a teenager just two generations ago.  Jobs were much easier to come by and you as the worker could pick and choose what you wanted to do. Today the general public have much higher expectations that they did in my day. I remember expressions like " the customer is always right" well believe me having worked in retail that is not always true but respect and tolerance had to be shown regardless.

To hold down a place in society your teenager needs to not only be given the right tools but also to be shown how to use them correctly, to grasp any opportunities and learn respect for others around them. We need to make our children feel worthy and valued members of society. The world does not owe them a living, they have to earn that living.

By sending your 16/17 years olds off for two to four weeks you are helping them build their confidence, their self esteem, and giving them the next valuable step towards being an adult in a difficult world, and giving them a break from you at the same time.

Project 365 week 15

Sunday

DD2 had planned on going home today but she had been up all night with D&V and could not get out of the bathroom long enough to do anything. I knew she would not cope with Ziggy and I have to be at work at 8am. Granddad does not do nappies, feeding or crying toddlers so I made myself very popular by phoning DD1 at 7.30 am to ask her if she could come and get Ziggy before her hubby went to work at 8am and keep her until I got home. I did not have overtime so knew I would be back in the afternoon. DD1 was at a birthday party with the kids so she just took Ziggy with her as well and I picked her up afterwards.





Monday

DD2 felt better and was going home. She took Ziggy and the dog for a walk to tire the two of them out, fed Ziggy lunch and then headed home hoping Ziggy would sleep for most of the journey. They brought me some daffodils before they left.

We went for a two hour walk down the woods with Dixie.





Tuesday

A few bits and pieces to do in the morning, then home and out with the dog for a walk. She was loving running up and down the hills. Spot the orange harness - easier than trying to see the dog in the brown leaves.





Wednesday

We had to go to Stirling to visit DS1, not been since before Christmas due to various factors. Asked Fifi to come and sit in the house as did not want Dixie dog left as we have never left her before and we are away from home for approximately six hours which was far to long. Fifi had some baking to do for Thursday so she just did it while she was here.






Thursday

Hubby had an appointment for his bloods for his diabetes. It was a dry and sunny if cold day so we took Dixie for a walk round a local park, then did some shopping and went along the river on the way home. Dixie encountered her first squirrels in the park today. She is really enjoying being sociable with people and other dogs we meet.
 We walked for about 3 hrs today.




Friday

Some of you will have heard of Steven Brown art, he is based in Ayr and today was the launch day for his first book. Book not written by him but based on his characters. He was having a launch at the shop with the author in reading to the children and he was signing the books for you as well. DD1 had wanted a copy for the kids so I said I would pop along for her as I was in the town anyway. The queue was out the door and round the shop and taking over an hour to get to the front of the queue, decided not to bother waiting.




Saturday

My advancing age is showing in many different ways. one of them being that the weight of my laptop sitting on my legs is making my knee and my hips sore. So I bought an overbed tray to use on my chair, making life a lot less painful.





I still have 4 competitions running, No 1 only until tomorrow but feel free and enter them while you are here.

Ziggy comes to visit.

Ziggy does not appear on the blog as often as the other children do due to her living nearly three hours away. This is the first time she has been down since she started walking, and I have to say Dixie was better with her this time. So I thought it would be nice to do a post on her. 

One thing that has not changed is Dixie still does not like her crying over the baby monitor or for that matter any other babies that cry on the television. I use Panasonic Multi Room Speakers that sit next to my chair and  Dixie stares at it and woofs when babies cry,  Apparently this is not unusual in dogs as you can read hereZiggy on the other hand loves to come over and stand by it especially when her favourite programme Something Special with Justin and Mr Tumble is on. She knows a lot of the Makaton signs from watching this, nice to know tv can be so educational. 

Anyway I digress this post is about Ziggy not Dixie, but then I suppose as part of the family she will feature.

When DD2 arrived they had been cooped up on the car for three hours so after they had all been fed we took the two dogs, ours and hers, wrapped up warmly and went for a walk in the wind and sleet along the back road. Ziggy was cold and a bit grumpy so we kept her going by encouraging her to go from puddle to puddle.



swinging on her reigns 


We did have some dry if cold weather and we spent time in the garden. This is an awful lot easier since hubby moved the shed down to the bottom of the garden and we can now see the whole garden. We acquired some toys from the woman across the road a few weeks back so she spent time in the cosy coupe car, on the scooter and pushing her baby in the buggy. 


sat down to have a snack

the buttons on the scooter play music

.



The buggy also came into the house to be played with 




She is remarkably good most of the time with us considering despite being her grandparents we are strangers to her due to this distance. She still seems to prefer Granddad to me when mummy is not around



Mummy left her while she was eating her breakfast



and left her while she went for a shower.


We went down to the park with her cousins one of the days, a separate blog post will follow on that in the next week. 


joining in with her cousins 

copying Dinky


We also spent time indoors as well. 


playing with the toys

making a cup of tea for Dixie dog

stories with Mummy 

feeding Dixie ( Dixie is chewing not growling) 

reading a story to Dixie

rocking the teddies sunglasses 

putting the dog toys in and out of the bed and cage 

On Friday night DD3 joined us for a fun evening. 




We also manged to get Dixie to allow Ziggy to feed her. Ziggy was still woofing when DD2 came down the stairs or into the room but a huge improvement on last time. If you watch to the end of the video you will see Ziggy putting toys in and out of the dog crate, the crate gave her loads of fun as the dog did not need to be put in there at all.

Benjy Bunn's Busy Day book - Giveaway No 4


On April fifth my humble little blog will be seven years old. Seven years of sharing the ups and downs of life, the growth of my family from two grandchildren to seven not to mention a house move and the demise of two pets. 

So by way of celebration I am planning on running a series of giveaways. Some of the prizes I am providing myself and some have generously been donated by various companies. So I have ten prizes so will run one every three days to spread them out over the month.


Today's prize is a copy of Benjy Bunn's Busy Day. This book is not available to buy until May 15th so I am giving you a chance to win it before that. 







Bev Scott Prior first wrote the Benjy Bunn series in the early 1970's to read to her children at the local nursery. The pages of the first copies of the stories, typed by her husband 45 years ago, are worn and weathered, each page smudged and frayed by the hands of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Now in 2018, Benjy has been brought to life by her grandson James Burns, the main illustrator of the series. The Benjy Bunn Books series is filled with old-fashioned charm, wit and wonderful musicality.

The first book in the series is about Benjy Bunn's Busy Day around his home. Benjy Bunn believes that he is doing good, helping his Mummy in the house and Daddy in the garden, however it is evident to the reader that his actions are actually causing mayhem in his family home. Whether it’s preparing food, tidying his room, or doing the gardening, Benjy gets it ever-so wrong. 

We have reviews from young readers on Toppsta.comThe book is due to be released on 15th May 2018 in the UK, and is currently available to pre-order at Foyles.co.uk and Wordery.co m. It will shortly also be available on Amazon in both physical and ebook format.

This book is suitable for ages 4-8 years.

Project 365 week 14

Sunday

Finished off this piece of cross stitch during my break today.




Monday

Sister in law  Big A and Niece B were up in Scotland visiting Auntie M and Cousin A plus her daughter L for the long weekend. So we met up for a coffee and a blether. Not sure we will go back as when I pointed out that somebody had peed on the floor and there was no toilet roll she went to mop it up with a bottle of spray and a piece of paper roll with her bare hands......and then was going back to serving food......yeuch. Exciting news for Sis in law as her daughter is pregnant and she is looking forward to being a Gran.

We had flurries of snow most of the day though it did not settle.





Tuesday

It was cold and it rained and rained. No walk was had with the dog. Sorted out my next piece of cross stitching.
Made some cakes. Choc chip with raspberry drizzle on.







Wednesday

DD2 braved the snow in her area to come down for a few days. It snowed most of the day, nothing lay but wasn't the nicest day. But as DD2's dog and the granddaughter had been stuck in the car for about three hours after we had all eaten lunch we went for a walk. Ziggy splashed her way from puddle to puddle and both the dogs were very wet time we got back. She decided she would swing on her reigns and scream as the puddles were not coming quick enough. Tried to get some smiley photos but my hands were to cold to unlock the phone.

This is the first time Ziggy has been down since she started walking about a month ago, seems funny to see her walking. Did take pictures in the house later but life is not all sweetness and roses and children will have temper tantrums on their reins.





Thursday

Was suppose to be going out with DD1 and DD2 but DD1 had to wait in on a tradesman who was suppose to be there on Wednesday so we went down and took them all to the park. Bob decided to come with us as he is grounded and not allowed out on his own or with his pals. A park post will follow some time in the next week.





Friday

DD3 (Auntie H) came for tea and to spend some time with Ziggy. Lots and giggles was had at her cuteness.



Saturday

Had a Debenhams voucher that I decided to spend before Debenhams are no more. So bought a pair of trainers as they won't go wrong.

Dixie Dog - eleven weeks on.

lying on her cushion
We have now had Dixie for eleven weeks today, and it has been a right roller coaster ride for her.


She came into heat with in a few days of us getting her, and this has added a few issues into her settling in period. We have not really had her long enough to know what is normal for her but we have had some huge improvements.

She is no more than happy to go to people when out of the house, sometimes too happy and keen but loves the attention from people now, when we got her she would not go near any strangers and would back away warily.


she loves to snuggle


She is still more than happy to meet and greet other dogs but as of yet does not play with other dogs.













her stitches

We have had her at the vets a few times as she up until now has been a really bad eater and no matter what we were putting in front of her she was eating less than a 1/6th of a tin of meat in a day and will not touch biscuits at all. Even when the vet tried feeding her cold meat she was not interested. We did worry a bit as she had a bit of a cough along with the lack of appetite and that was how Lilly's cancer started. The vet diagnosed a bit of swelling in her top gums and thought this was not helping so we agreed to have her teeth cleaned to prevent any issues this might create in the future. As this required a general anaesthetic our vet suggested we spay her at the same time, save the risk of two separate GA's. She did not come out of the anaesthetic to well, vomited and had to be given fluids before we were allowed her home. Was not keen to stand or walk at all. The vet did offer to keep her overnight but he thought she would recover better at home. Hubby sat down the stairs with her all night as she took herself off to her bed and did not want to move. Cant really blame her having had major surgery.  She chewed out three of her stitches and had the remaining stitch taken out and her wound checked on Monday 26th, eleven days after her operation. All is well and it has healed beautifully.






trying to hide



We took her back to the vet on Wednesday 21st with a list of symptoms including lethargy, she seemed disinterested in everything around her, her appetite was non existent, she was very restless and would not settle at all. If we took her put for a walk then she would just plod along at our heels showing no interest in her surroundings at all. She almost seemed depressed.








Her bed was being dug at and anything she could find to pick up, hair brushes, inhalers, carrots, soft toys, socks, etc she takes them away and hides them. We were finding all sorts under our pillows or under the sewing table, in amongst the teddies on the stairs and she was taking dog treats and biscuits and stashing them as well. We could not help but notice she was spending a lot of time digging at her bed, trying to make it "right" but never really succeeding. The vet look at the list of and expressed fluid from her teats and told us he thought she was having a phantom pregnancy at that the hormones would pass.





luggy scratches from Bob


Another massive improvement we have seen is her behaviour when other people come into the house. Bob was in on Wednesday  and she did give a few barks when he came into the house, but she very quickly settled down. She happily sat next to him on the couch and gave a few low growls but was more than happy for him to scratch her ears and stroke her.











half on the couch half on the window sill 



She also loves to lie half on the back of the couch and half on the windowsill watching the world go by. When we first got her she barked and barked at people going by but now she does the odd low growl but nothing more.












Last week when we had her out for a walk in Irvine is the first time we have seen her running off and playing. Really enjoying her walk and getting more out of it than just a plod round where ever we take her.





She is even starting to play in the house. Will chase a ball and take it back to her bed this week. Interacts really well in playing mode with either DH or myself, just not the two of us together, that still seems to intimidate her.
