      bring back katie and sort out your friendship with pete you cant be bitter forever!!

      Right ok,where do I start? My first opinion is that I think Katie price needs mental help I cant help see her many different personalities destroying her life. I haven't always felt this way about Katie price as when she was with Peter Andre I couldn't help but admire her as a business women and she is a good mum after her disabled son Harvey and junior and princess.

      Since her split with Pete she has done everything wrong I personally think the way shes handled things is due to embarrassment through being dumped she will do anything to try and hurt pete the way hes hurt her. She shouldnt of got into a serious relationship so soon and bring that cross dresser into the kids lifes thats just unfair on the kids, you should at least date someone for a few months before bringing him into there lifes whats the point if they split up the kids wont know who else will walk through the door!
      Saying everything in the press I just dont agree with her slagging pete off at every chance she gets I personally think shes worried about losing everything she got whilst with pete and i dont think she would have done half as well as she has done now if she didnt marry pete.

      Jordan should let katie price out and lock herself away from the press whilst she gets used to her new life as a single mum and concentrate on mediation between her and pete because the kids are all that matters now!

        great toy for any boy

        My sons favourite toy!!

        I got this product for my son last Christmas, my son is 6years old and has severe delayed development and is at the stage of a one year old.
        This product has been battered as my son likes to throw things but I am amazed that it still works.He has learn't to push it to make a noise and he loves the sound it makes.

        At the front of the toy are two sections where the firemen can sit and there is a yellow ladder which extends and you can put a fire man onto.There are three fire men which are also included with the toy.
        The ladder makes a clicking sound when extending which my son loves.

        There are two shutters on each side of the fire engine which come down to reveal some of the fire men's equipment and a hose which spins round and buttons to press for added sound effects.There are many different sounds to hear including a fire bell alarm,telephone ringing,car horn,fire engine alarm.

        Two lights light up front and back when the fire engine noise plays.
        Noise can be activated by pushing the vehicles,pressing one of the 6 buttons or placing the fire men in there slots.

        I always have liked the early learning centre as they have a wide range of toys to help with certain stages of development this toy is especially good for imagination and hand to eye coordination.

        This product is still available in the elc shops and every review i have read people love this toy.

        cost: 22 pounds online at the early learning centre website.

        Needs x 2 AA Batteries

          go to america!

          For years I have looked forward to going to Disneyland Paris as it is easier to get to than America but since I went I feel slightly disappointed.

          Here's my experience..

          I have a son who has severe delayed development and needs a wheelchair to get around, my son loves mickey mouse clubhouse so I decided that I should contact Dreams come true charity to see if they could make his Dream come true. It was hard to decide what my son actually likes but every time he sees mickey mouse he smiles so Disneyland seemed like a great idea.

          Dreams come true charity made it possible for us to have a great family holiday and we got the chance to stay in a campsite for a week and then visit Disneyland for the day and stay at sante fe for a night.

          We set off early in the morning from our campsite to Disney as it took us an hour to get there and then we went to the hotel to get our park tickets.When we arrived we saw minnie mouse dancing in the reception area which made us feel all excited to what the day ahead was going to hold,the staff were all friendly.

          We walked outside and then jumped on a yellow bus which took us to the park which i thought was great.
          we spent all day at the park and then went back to the hotel.
          We got our keys and made our way to our room, the key card was easy enough to use.

          The room had two double beds, a ceiling fan,phone,tv and furniture for storage.I thought the bed was comfy I certainly did get a good night sleep but I couldn't help but feel disappointed with the decor.
          With the price they charge I thought that at least the decor should be upto scratch and apart from the mickey shape free shampoo bottle there was nothing to show that we were staying in a Disney hotel.

          There were chips out of the door where it looked like it needed repainting and the mirror frame in the bathroom was badly painted a lot of care and attention certainly hasn't gone into maintaining the theme of the room.

          There is a shop on site and 24hour reception I had the worst migrain ever and the reception couldn't provide me with any kind of pain relief.

          There was an all you can eat buffet which was about 21euros for adults and 13euros for kids. There wasn't much to chose from really as pretty much everything was repeated all around.
          I had chicken fajitas and the chicken had to much powder spices in it which I was disappointed about.I started to feel sick after that so I left my partner to feed the kids whilst I went back to the hotel for a much needed nap to shift my headache, my partner brought me a doggy bag
          of some donuts,bread,cheese and pate which i woke up at 2am and ate the donuts were lovely and so was the bread.
          My partner didn't like the food either i remember trying one of my sons nuggets and they were disgusting the chicken wasn't white it was Grey!

          I do believe this hotel is really overpriced and with what you spend all together going to disneyland paris it is probably best to go to disney in the usa, the dollar is much better than euro to the pound too!

          All that was nice about this hotel is the staff!

            great time to meet family who havent seen in a while

            I still live at home with my mum and son Joshua so tradition is left up to my mum but id do things differently if i had my own house just to add my touches.
            We normally put our Christmas tree up 12 days before Christmas and we hang candy canes on the branches for the kids when they visit as well as all the fancy decorations.
            We have started to get real tree's as they smell nice and its great going choosing your own.

            Since meeting my boyfriend Anthony we have gone up to north wales to visit his parents just before Christmas.They have a lovely cottage on farmlands in the middle of no where and if you look carefully you can see the sea.
            The house is gorgeous and they have a real fire which we roasted chestnuts on there last year they were delicious.
            I wont be taking josh though as they don't have heating and it can get cold so i am thinking that is why he wouldn't settle last time we went.We normally stay 2 nights then drive home Christmas eve,last Christmas we drove home singing Christmas tunes and stopped off at little chef for our breakfast.

            Since my sister has got her own house we spend Christmas eve at hers until about 8pm as i need to get josh in bed ready for Santa.
            We normally have a buffet tea as this saves cooking and we can throw away paper plates.
            I get josh into bed and tell him that he has to be good for Santa even though he might not understand what i say as he has special needs i like to think he understands who knows maybe he does but just cant show it yet.
            My partner stops over Christmas as he lives in a flat a few miles away,this will be out second Christmas together.
            We wake up in the morning last year i had to wake josh up he was sleeping in it was my turn for all the mornings hes woken me up,haha.I get more excited than josh,but he doesnt really understand you could spend loads on him and he would still spend hours playing with the wrapping paper.
            We spend all morning playing with toys whilst mum slaves away in the kitchen on the full English breakfast,we do offer help but she thinks things would be done quicker if we didn't help charming!
            A nice full English with a bucks fizz is what you need to start the day.
            After breakfast we like to go for a walk so we go and see if there are any ducks out that need feeding which is nice.
            Then my sister comes round with her boyfriend and her two kids and we open presents then sit down for a proper Christmas dinner.My mum likes to do a starter,Christmas dinner then Christmas pudding.

            We then play party games with the kids and get them tired out for bedtime and then we stay up till late playing loads of different games, i love playing buzz on ps2 and were having a go at singstar this year so that should be fun.

            Boxing day mum normally makes a turkey curry with the leftover turkey and we normally have ham sandwiches for dinner as she loves to cook a leg of ham.

            This Christmas i am going to get josh to make christmas pies and decorate some decorations for his bedroom as i am going to make it feel more christmasy.

            I love Christmas time its not about the presents its about having your family around and even the kids appreciate that more if you bring them up not spoilt they will understand the true meaning.

            We always toast to love ones that have passed away so they are not being forgotten.

              Disadvantages

              one to watch

              Finding Nemo came to our cinema screens on 10th October 2003, Its the story of marlin,his only wish is to bring up his only son Nemo ,warning him the of dangers of the deep blue sea.
              Nemo's mother and siblings were tragically taken away making Marlin overprotected of his only son.

              Nemo forever wanting to prove he can look after himself gets taken away by a diver after he goes against his dads orders and touches a boat with his Finn for a dare.

              Nemo was taken to a dentist fish tank on the Sydney harbor Australia and this film takes you through Marlins journey to find his son.

              Along the way Marlin meets many different friends who help him try and find Nemo especially Dorey who seems to be the only fish in the great barrier reef that can read,Dorey reads the address off the drivers scuba goggles to help them find there way, the only problem is Dorey suffers from short term memory loss.

              Marlin braves the open waters to find his son but will it be to late? Nemo was meant for a present for the dentist niece Darla who has a reputation for not looking after her pet fish.

              why I love this film:

              It shows courage and determination and teaches people that if you aim to achieve something that it is possible,like Marlin searching the dark waters for Nemo.

              Children love this film and recently it was created into a live show for Disney on ice which hit arenas all over the UK.

              My son is weakest on his right arm just like Nemo with his damaged finn and it shows that no matter what disability you may have its possible to achieve something like with Nemo Swimming into the filter to dirty the fish tank.

              Even though it hit the cinemas in 2003 Nemo products are still selling and the Disney shop still offers Finding Nemo toys which shows that it is a success, as well as the Oscar it won deservedly.

              Dorey is my favourite character as she is funny and charming.Dorey is kind and helps marlin till the very end, I think that fish made the film.

              I love the music in the film especially "beyond the sea" performed by Robbie Williams.

              Its a great film to watch for all ages and a great dvd to own.

                great little gadget for parties or sensory skills

                I am so pleased that so many products like this has hit the shelf's you can buy them anywhere now and i bought mine from Argos.

                It is good that products like this are made for a cheaper budget as it can help with people who need sensory stimulation.

                My son has special needs and a slight visual impairment and products like this really help him.
                When i turn his disco ball on he relaxes and enjoys looking at the room when it is lit up in all different colours.

                Some stores that offer products for people with special needs i feel rip them off as many items are over priced one of these disco lights from a special sensory brochure would be at least 100 pound.

                Ok so the little plastic disco lights might not last as long but there defiantly worth what you pay for it.
                I bought mine for 10pounds which is really good.

                You can get disco lights in all different sizes and disco lights are not only good for parties they are good for stimulating children's sensory skills.

                  my bestest friend

                  My son Joshua is 5 he was born on the 4th June 2003 the day before my 18th birthday and is the bestest thing that has ever happened to me.

                  Joshua was born at 32weeks after he developed fetal hydrops in the womb,josh was born with many problems and hurdles to climb but he has pulled through and hes my miracle.
                  Joshua has a condition called hydrocephalus (water on the brain) which is controlled by a v.p shunt.

                  Joshua has delayed development and is reviewed at being the stage of a one year old.I am sick of having my child being labeled as he cant do this, he cant do that,when i know that there are so many things he has learnt to do that i never ever thought i would see.
                  I was told that it was possible Joshua might have trouble seeing and hearing but after endless test i am relieved to know that they are both OK.

                  Joshua can make anyone smile,he is so lovable and cheeky.Josh can hum a number of different tunes ranging from dean martin to forest gump theme tune lol.
                  He has learnt to sit up and can shuffle to places on his bottom.
                  Josh loves to stack bricks but at the moment can only manage three.
                  Joshua can feed himself although can be abit messy as he is going through a stage of throwing things.
                  To communicate josh gives me a kiss if he wants to go to bed and pulls my hand under his arm to be held.

                  This year josh has made big progress he can walk using a walker at school and will be having one at home when he only needs the support off one adult.

                  Josh has his wheels people like to stare but there only jealous because of his fancy wheels.

                  Children tend to be scared of him but thats only because there parents dont educate there children about disabled children and why they might be that way.

                  Joshua loves everyone and he wont not smile back if you have a different colour skin or if you have no limbs.

                  Joshua even thinks that its funny when people sneeze he loves the noises sneezing makes.

                  josh loves playing with his friction cars and his bricks.

                  Joshua loves it when his daddy watches the football and laughs when players score.

                  Josh loves to go swimming he loves the hydrotherapy pool.

                  Joshua loves to watch playhouse disney and especially loves little Einsteins as they play all his favourite classical tunes.

                  Josh loves his cousins they play with him and make him feel loved,there his best friends.

                  While many parents cant wait for there children to get married and have kids, I Just cant wait until josh learns to walk that is what many people take for granted.I hope one day josh will get to a stage where he finds love and can live on his own but that may never happen.All i want for him is for him to be happy that's all that matters.

                    good excuse for a party

                    On November the 5th every year the uk celebrates the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot which took place in 1605,a number of Catholic conspirators, including Guy Fawkes, were alleged to be attempting to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London, England.
                    We celebrate by lighting bonfires and setting off fireworks,which leaves the outside look eerie.Some children like to build a guy and ask "penny for the guy".

                    Bonfire poem:

                    Remember, remember the fifth of November
                    It's Gunpowder Plot, we never forgot
                    Put your hand in your pocket and pull out your purse
                    A ha'penny or a penny will do you no harm
                    Who's that knocking at the window?
                    Who's that knocking at the door?
                    It's little Mary Ann with a candle in her hand
                    And she's going down the cellar for some coal

                    I love everything about bonfire night but I would think it would be much more safer and cheaper if everyone went to a controlled firework display.
                    The emergency departments are always really busy at that time of year and fireworks that get into the wrong hands are used to scare people and damage property.
                    I would never want to stop this day as its fun for all ages and an excuse to party.
                    You will find at that time of year treacle toffee,toffee apples,parkin cake and black peas will sell in most shops.

                      great cheap snack

                      Pot noodles were created in 1977 and are still selling well today.Pot noodles are the best hot snack that i can think of and are sold in most shops.Pot noodles are not really that expensive and are available in small,medium and king size.
                      All you need for this snack is some hot water which you put into the pot noodle,fill to the line and hey presto give it a stir and add the sachet of sauce yummy!
                      Pot noodle has a wide range of different flavours now but my favourite has got to be spicy curry it just presses all the right buttons for me.

                      Here are a list of all other flavours available:

                      sweet & spicy
                      sweet & sour
                      beef & tomato
                      chicken satay
                      chicken & mushroom
                      lamb hot pot
                      original curry
                      chinese chow mein
                      tikka masala
                      bombay bad boy

                      So its safe to say your spoilt for choice.
                      Pot noodle claims to have no artificial colourings or preservatives in there range and have reduced the amount of salt they use 50% since 2005 and this snack manages to taste just as good.
                      All of there Pot noodle range are 100% suitable for vegetarians too.

                      dont make it ok to take any kind of drugs

                      I don't think any type drug should be legalized it just makes it look for it to be OK to take drugs when its not.
                      For people that need the drugs for medical reason Im sure they can get this on prescription.
                      I think cannabis is just as bad as any other drug and drugs effect people in all different kinds of ways.
                      I knew a lad that smoked cannabis all the time and he started to have difficulty learning and everything he did became slow like his speech and reactions,so a good enough reason why you shouldn't be under the influence of this whilst driving.
                      I have seem people react differently to this drug and some people have changed and become aggresive.
                      Why should it be legalized? there is no reason that it should be and if it can effect peoples health then its best not to get it available all around the UK,the nhs is suffering enough without the need to treat people with symptoms caused by taking drugs,just like alcohol abuse.
                      If you smoke cannabis its a lot more harmful than smoking normal tobacco and we all know what health risk comes with that.

                        Disadvantages

                        you will make it work

                        I love the ranges that Durex has brought out and I have bought this item.
                        This 2 in 1 brings you a lube and massage lotion all in one.
                        The smell is lovely and if you happen to have a taste it's sweet.
                        With the Durex range you know its going to be safe to use with condoms.
                        This item is OK to use for a massage for the first minute and then it soaks into the skin and makes it hard for your hand movements to slide smoothly. So for me I would stick to the basic oil for a good massage, although it does feel nice when it is applied and the skin afterward's is left feeling soft.
                        This is great for using as a lube, it smells and taste nice so makes it more fun for your partner.
                        I bought mine from ann summers and it wasn't that bad price wise but you can get lube that is cheaper and oil separately but if your partner surprises you with this i am sure that what ever you think of it you will make it work.

                          just small steps will get you to your goals,things take time

                          For me the best way to lose weight is not to obsess about losing it,if you just make small changes at a time the weight will come off a whole lot easier.
                          My downfall is fizzy drinks and when i cut these out then i lost weight without even exercising.
                          Obviously exercise is the best key to losing weight but when were giving up everything we love and changing out lifestyles it is so hard to get into getting fit.
                          The more you diet the more you think about food,probably more than when you was piling on the pounds.
                          There are no quick fixes and as with everything thats good it takes time and effort to achieve the goals we all want.
                          I have tried endless diets but have become a constant yo yo dieter but that was all down to me just wanting the fat to melt away overnight.
                          we are led to believe weight loss clubs care about is but if they did why is there a price tag?I have been to weight watchers but as i couldn't afford it every week i stopped going.
                          The best key to weight loss is finding out the cause of weight gain,mine is to little exercise and boredom eating.
                          We have to remember that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that we wasn't born this way and that it is possible to get back into shape.
                          I'm still on my weight loss journey but its going to take time i didn't gain this weight overnight.
                          Whats helping me is keeping a diary of what i have ate and how i felt that day this is a great key to success if you look back at the diary you can see where you can improve.
                          Dieting is a daunting word its just an excuse for everyone to know your losing weight but I Am sick of talking about it,i am sick of it ruling my life.I am not dieting,I am getting healthy for me!

                            My view on Pizza hut:

                            Delivery - I have always found that pizza hut has been the fastest to deliver and the food has always been hot.If i have ever had a problem with my order they have refunded me in full.
                            There are great offers for collection or delivery just ask when you phone up or you will see them on the menu or website.

                            Restaurant - The staff are friendly and polite and will walk you to your table.They offer colouring packs for the children to keep them busy.The service has always been quick and any needs have always been met.
                            I haven't had a bad meal in pizza hut yet the food is delicious and not bad value for money.
                            The inside of the restaurant is nicely decorated and is kept tidy.
                            Any children will receive a balloon and when you have paid the bill you get those little sweets which is a nice touch.
                            During the week day you can dine for 5.99 for adults and 3.49 for children you can help yourself to as much pizza,pasta/salad bar as you want which is great.
                            If you cant manage to eat everything and need to go then you can get a box to take your left overs in which is great,if they dont ask you just ask them to sort it out.
                            I love pizza hut and its a great place to eat before a fun night out at the cinema or bowling.

                            great shop

                            I think that this shop is expensive but i think the quality and choice of toys is so worth while getting.
                            This shop is great for educational toys and each toys clearly illustrates what the toy aims to do whether its sensory,fine motor skills,social skills,imagination etc.
                            I love there craft selection and have bought bottles of paint for as little as one pound.Also good prices are the non spill paint pots,chunky chalks,glue,glitter etc.
                            As well as craft stuff there is a selection of musical instruments i have bought my son the bells which you tie to your hands to help him with his weakened right side and they were only 2 pounds.
                            you can buy ball pools,balls and loads of outside play stuff as well.
                            I have bought my son a sandpit.water pit which you can use inside and out which is good quality.
                            I love this store and like there variety although smaller prices on certain products would be nice.

                              There is a wide range of different party ware and i am sure you will find any that your child may like.
                              I always find the staff to be helpful and if there out of stock of anything they will ring you up to let you know when its in store.
                              Also if you buy bulky items they will happily assist you to your car.
                              There are also some good offers you can find in store and if you like to earn money of vouchers you can register for a gold card which will help you get further discounts.
                              I would be surprised if your local toys r us didn't have what you were looking for.
