This weeks Room 10-1 theme set by the lovely Lauren is REALITY TV.
I enjoy some reality TV shows like XFactor but thats probably only because on a Saturday night between September-December there isn’t a lot else on so I end up watching and then I end up getting hooked. Every every year I tell myself I wont watch it, I still do.
However, I do feel that programmes like Big Brother (sorry Lauren) are a complete waste of space especially seeing as thought it ended on channel 4 and then last year got resurrected over on Channel 5! When it was on channel 4 it just took over sooooo much TV time and then there were the spinoff shows aswell not just one but two! PLus there are the celebrity versions *yawns* I just don’t even start watching them and then I cannot get hooked and waste so much time wanting to know what happens next.
Anyway, despite my attack on BB I am going to put I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here into Room 101.
My reasons? Well again I don’t watch it although I have seen the odd clip now and then and because of the huge coverage programmes like this get on morning TV shows and magazines, together with twitter and Facebook, you cannot help but know what is going on even if you are not watching it yourself!
I just think that even if I were on my last showbiz shoes and I was a bit hard up or wanted some TV exposure to reignite my flagging career or help promote an album etc… there is NO way on earth that I could live in a jungle and participate in those awful bush tucker trials! Just grosses me out. I hate creepy crawlies and to have some poured over me or me have to stick my hand into a box which may contain snakes – I just couldn’t do it.
Nor could I attempt to eat some animal private body parts – its just horrid. Yes I know that these sections of the show are the main attraction of this programme – but I just couldn’t watch it happening or get stuck in myself, as it would give me the eeebie jeebies too much!! I would rather get another job then enter the jungle and do all those nasty things!
Its just hideous and I just won’t watch it and I wish it could be banished from our screens to Room 101
So it had been 75 weeks and 6 days since I had last had sex. Yes you heard that right – 18 months pretty much had passed since I was last intimate with my boyfriend. I was starting to wonder if I would ever do ‘it’ again.
I wrote a post back in July where I discussed how I felt after my OH had suggested that maybe I would like to get back in the ‘saddle’ again. But back then nothing was further from my mind. As I explained, in my no holds barred post, I was just not ready back then to do anything more than try and get a good nights sleep. I was knackered! Shattered in fact! I had a 4 month old baby and a two year old. I was still breast feeding around the clock; my body was still a bit alien to me and I just didn’t feel confident in myself to be naked in front of my OH in ‘that’ way again.
So as I said at the start of this post, it had been 75 weeks and 6 days since I had last had sex – yes ‘had’ been. I used the past tense – did you see what I did there!!??
Seriously though, these last few months taught me some important things:
So Jenson passed another milestone last week, he moved from his backward facing car seat to a front facing one.
Yet another baby item that is now redundant, his old car seat is currently sat in the hallway while we decide what to do with it. Unlike with Burton we won’t be keeping it as we don’t plan on having any more children now.
As we did with Burton we opted for the same front facing car seat again as we have found it to be a great buy and so easy to remove and reinstall as and when we have needed to. The Recaro Young Expert+ is also fitted with the Isofix base which we find to not only be a safe method of keeping the car seat tightly secured inside the car, but it is very easy to use (trust me, I am useless and even I can do it!).
What also makes this car seat ideal for us, is the fact that the seat grows with your baby as it can accommodate from 9kg up to 18kg which should see it fit your child from around 9 months until it reaches 4 years of age ,when it is time to employ a booster seat.
My OH loves the fact that these seats also look a bit like rally car bucket seats!! Of course, now that we have two of them in our car, he is enjoying the fact that from the back it looks like we have two rally car seats in the back of it! Men and their cars!!
To begin with I am not sure that Jenson was too sure about suddenly being sat more upright and facing forwards rather than backwards – he didn’t really give anything away with his face thats for certain!
Burton found it all very entertaining and got very excited on his little brother’s behalf!
By the end of our journey however, I think Jenson was enjoying his car seat more although we couldn’t get him to smile too much for his photo to record his first time in his new seat!
My best friend Kimberly celebrated her birthday yesterday but came round to mine for tea tonight. In her honour I made her a birthday cake and thought I would share the recipe
