Some things about me...

It has been suggested to me that when I don't have anything to really write about - I should just write a few things about me that might be of interest. Since this blog is about me, I guess it doesn't seem too egocentric to do so...
I'm terrified of heights - I always have been. As a child, I would be fine going up and keep up with everyone else (climbing trees and what not), but almost always, one of my friends would have to go find an adult to get me down!
The last time I went on a Ferris wheel I was a teenager and I was so scared that by the end - I had my head in my boyfriend's lap, crying like a baby (while my moronic friend next to me said things like (look how small all of the people look - they look like ants)! Even now, on some occasions will look for stairs so I don't have to get on an escalator. On my honeymoon, I went parasailing with my husband and I kid you not - I screamed bloody murder the whole time!!!
That being said, I absolutely LOVE roller-coasters! The bigger the better (Strange I know)! I was terrified of them until I was about 18. I went to Great Adventure (a theme park) with My boyfriend at the time and he coerced me onto one (yes, the same one who dumped me on a roller-coaster. I think it may have been the same day). I cursed him the whole time waiting on line, but when it was over - I loved him even more for it! I can't explain it, but even though they are usually very high up - I absolutely LOVE them!

Vicks First Defence

I always catch something when I fly. Every time I get on a plane, I make sure I pack cold & flu medicine because I know I'll be sick for the next week. I told my doctor about it because I was wondering if I could get a hold of something over the counter to help. I know in the US they sell things that are supposed to help. He told me to buy Vicks First Defense (which is available in the UK over the counter, but as of last November, was not available in the US). It's a nasal spray that you don't inhale. You simply squirt it into the side of your nostril a couple of times and wait a few seconds before you take a breath through your nose (avoiding taking a deep breath for a few minutes - I once inadvertently inhaled it and let me tell you, it was painful so take my word for it - don't inhale it). The spray is supposed to form a thin layer of gel at the back of the nose, where it should trap the virus, disarm it and help the body to flush it out. I was hesitant w…

Fight Club for Five Year Olds - Part 2

The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head.  We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground.  I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school.  They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way.  They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'.  They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime.  They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact.  I find this to be absurd.  The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after o…

Kicked the habit with an e-cigarette

I quit smoking when I moved to the UK, mainly because I promised my husband I would.  I did it for him, but not because I wanted to.  I enjoyed smoking.  I missed it, but quit successfully for many years until I went through a stressful time and started again.  My relapse lasted over a year.  The whole time, I was ashamed of myself.  I hated the smell.  I hated how I felt, I hated the health risks and I hated my lack of willpower.
     I've known a few people who have tried e-cigarettes.  I was a skeptic.  I thought it was going from one habit to another.  The people I knew that tried it, always had it and were constantly sucking on it.  It seemed to me they were more addicted to it then they were cigarettes.  I don't know any smokers that constantly had a cigarette in their hand.
     Then in January, I saw a piece about it on the BBC News.  I watched with interest thinking they were going to say that they have found it to be harmful.  What they said was quite the opposite.…
