My Good Egg




This Easter I've teamed up with The Co Op to celebrate the in our lives.



My Good Egg is Jon.

Why?

Because every day he wakes up in immense pain, pain so bad that I can't even imagine how bad, but yet he puts on a brave face for me and the boys and goes about being the best daddy and partner he can be.

He's broken his back twice, has had countless operations, has had disks removed and screws fixed in, screws taken out and now is on the waiting list to have a pain stimulator fixed into his spine.
With the hope that actually takes the focus away.
He could have big surgery again, but the risks out weigh the positives.

Because of his back pain he also suffers really bad anxieties, which make leaving the house a daily battle.
When I suggest doing something out of the blue it will normally end up in a massive argument.
I am learning to be more understanding and try and plan things which I want to do a few days ahead of when I want too.

It's a learning curve for both of us, he's learning to say yes more and I'm learning to be more accepting.

I'm not the most patient person, so for him putting up with me he really is my Good Egg!!!

Make Your Own Doctor Who Christmas Cards

Last week Oscar was off from school as he had caught the end of my flu. 
Luckily he's had the flu nasal spray and didn't suffer as much as I did.

I wanted to keep him busy, so I thought it would be the perfect time to make some very cool Doctor Who Christmas Cards.


It's uber easy and next to no mess at all.

We downloaded the copies of the cards from www.penguin.co.uk, where there are 4 designs to choose from.

We are massive Doctor Who fans in the Mini Beast household thanks to Daddy's obsession.


I cut out the templates and Oscar took charge of the sticking.
We didn't have any card in the house so I improvised by using some coloured paper and folded it a few times.
It worked pretty well and we were both very impressed with the end result.

Jon loved them so much that he's put them on display and said if we want to send any out we'll have to make some more!


If you want to make your own Doctor Who cards you will need.
The templates which you can download from the Penguin website
Some Card 
A pair of scissors,
A glue stick
A spare 20 minutes.


The illustrations for the cards were taken from the new book - 

A new collection of illustrated Christmas adventures, starring twelve incarnations of the Doctor plus many of his friends and enemies.

Inside this festive book of Doctor Who stories, you'll find timey-wimey mysteries, travels in the TARDIS, monster-chasing excitement and plenty of Christmas magic. Find out what happens when the Third Doctor meets Jackie Tyler, the Seventh Doctor and Ace encounter an alien at Macy's department store, and the Ninth Doctor tries to get Rose a red bicycle for Christmas.
With stories by Jacqueline Rayner, Colin Brake, Richard Dungworth, Mike Tucker, Gary Russell and Scott Handcock, plus twelve original illustrations by artists including the award-winning Rob Biddulph.
