Things have got better and better......

I have struggled to pick just one word to sum up this week......It's had it's lows and it's highs but as the week has gone on it's got better and better.....So I'm going with....


 It started out pretty rubbish with my Twitter problems but the support I had from lots of lovely bloggers has been amazing Thank you to everyone who tried to help, send virtual hugs and has followed me since I started my new account up! I really do appreciate it...

A lot of good has come of my new account....As I was setting it up I made it more connected to my blog by choosing the name NorthumMam (NorthumberlandMam was too long) and putting a version of my banner on it.....It has made me realise I followed some really random accounts that I had no need to....lol Some which hadn't been used in months....I have also come across lots of new people who were kind enough to follow me.....New friends are always good....

I used to enter a lot of competitions on Twitter.....Sometimes a couple of hundred a day but this week I haven't entered many at all....It has improved my Twitter feed as I'm seeing more tweets from real people instead of having my twitter feed full of companies saying retweet this to win......I thought I would miss it but I'm not...I've gone back to using Prize Finder to enter competitions....Of course I will still enter a few and the one's on blogs which use rafflecopter but nothing compared to what I used to do.....

Monday evening was parents evening for Ellie.....Oh joy I thought....I haven't had the best start to the school year with Ellie's teacher so was expecting the worst....I was very surprised when she said Ellie is fantastic....She is so helpful and is really coming out of her shell.....At the start of term she was quite shy.....Now she is putting her hand up for everything and is growing in confidence every day...She is top of the class in reading which is absolutely brilliant as some of her class are nearly a year older then her (she's was born on August 29th) The only problem which isn't a problem was that she needs to spend less time perfecting her handwriting....She likes to put curls on everything....lol 

Becky has had a bit of bother since the start of term at school with a couple of boys.....There's been a bit of name calling but she has handled it well and now it has improved so much that she is best friends with them.....All thanks to Minecraft....lol They've been playing it at lunchtime on the school computers and it is Becky's new obsession.....It baffles me....lol 

So what turned out at the start a pretty rubbish week has greatly improved as it has gone on.....At 3pm it will be even better....The kids break up for half term.....I'm so looking forward to a break from the routine.....We have nothing planned at the moment but I'm sure it will be fun....

  7. I seperated my blogging and comping twitter accounts and agree it's much easier but I still get to enter the twitter comps on my comping account so win win!
