Never one to pass up a Friends reference I am? I’ve been a bit rubbish at writing blog posts recently but if there ever was a time to document, having CoronaVirus is!
There, I said it. I hate weaning. I just don’t get these people that say “oooh i love weaning, it’s so much fun watching them explore food!” For me, it’s a lot of pressure and a massive ball ache! Some say that parenting in general is a lot of pressure and I suppose it is. There is a pressure to parent them into half decent human beings that don’t lick windows/eat their own poop. With weaning though, there are so…
Today is the one year anniversary of the day I got my first sick note for “work related stress”. I felt now was a good time as any to actually discuss my anxiety in pregnancy, what happened as well as how I feel about it one year on.
Chances are, if you live in the West Yorkshire area and have a child, you will have heard of BoomChikkaBoom. Faye and her team are quickly becoming on of the biggest children’s entertainers in our area. When you attend one of their events, it’s easy to see why! Lucas, Sienna and I got involved in some messy play fun with them!
When I tell people I’m scared of heights they say “But you did a sky dive!” and they’re right, I did, from 15, 000 feet. I’m scared of heights, still! Throwing myself out of a plane, strapped to a random guy, did not cure my fear. My fear is actually worse when I’m closer to the ground. At 15, 000 feet you don’t comprehend how high you are. As we floated to the ground in the parachute I freaked out….

The only memories that I have of that are the book laying on my step mums bedside table when I was younger. Other than it being in Greece, I was pretty clueless about our holiday destination.
On our last day before Lucas started school, I wanted to do something nice with him to mark the occasion. When one of my friends suggested This Green Moon, the forest school in Leeds, I was clueless! I didn’t know what to expect but totally up for giving it a go! Woodland Adventures Situated in Swillington Organic Farm, it encourages woodland adventures, imagination, outdoor experiences and much, much more. Paul, who owns This Green Moon, immediately impressed me with his…
Dear Lucas, My first born. Mummy’s little boy. My happy, clever, funny little boy. Today is your first day at school!
After 11 years of teaching, I feel like I am starting a new chapter in my life and I couldn’t help but feel that the name “Educating Roversi” associated with my teaching career too much. Moving forward, I am unsure of what the future holds but no doubt it will be documented on my blog and social media so it was important to have something that fits.
My first birth story was a funny tale, punctuated with comedy moments from my Mum. It ended with a beautiful baby boy. This one isn’t as funny, but it was a positive water birth experience and ended with a beautiful baby girl.
