So yep it is Friday. I did wake up this morning, took Henry to Nursery then did a run, wondering about the EU result, whether the UK are in the EU or not. I did have a feeling it would be out, as I had a suspicion, as we had some person driving around in a, what look like a Jeep on a microphone convincing people to vote to stay in. Like a last minute persuasion knowing it was going to be the other way.
I got to say I did get a bit fed up of every time I went into town I had someone in a logo T-Shirt, EU Vote in or EU Vote out, handing me a leaflet. There was some guy arguing with one of them, and I was more wanting this all to be done with. There is only so much leaflet bombarding that one person can take. I know they are just doing their job, but I think it was a bit too much at times, as it seemed every time we turned a corner there they would be.
Now the results have been coming in, I don't really know what to think. I to be honest could not make up my mind, and I am not going to say if I voted or not, or which way I voted, I think when it comes to voting it is your choice and should be kept private if requested. I know there are many disappointed people with the vote, but there has to be a good reason why people have voted us out the EU. You don't get a majority on a vote without a reason. People want change, and whether it is good or bad, sometimes changes occur for a reason.
What is important to me is the poverty in this country. I know there are many countries who have people starving, being terminally ill and homeless, living in refugee camps, but we do have to focus our attention to the people struggling in the UK. I remember a report in the news of more families in the UK having to rely on food banks, and being someone who only had £4 and pennies left from my month wage I can understand why. I am lucky I do have husband who can support me. I have a good family and parents, who have helped us out, but there are those who aren't so lucky. They are the ones we should be looking after.
So what ever happens, I want the poverty rate in the UK to go down. It is tough to see people living on the streets, especially in winter, and families living in a bedsit, because they can't afford even a one bedroom flat or house.
Also Taxes. I do wonder a lot of, where does our money go?
Why are the NHS struggling?
I hope that whatever happens from today, that good things will come out of it. Whoever is becomes Prime Minister, of the country as I lost faith in all politicians a while ago that, the NHS do get help and support they need to not be struggling, and the poverty in the UK goes down, helping people to be more well off.

Hello, it is Friday once again and going to keep this short and sweet as possible. Trying to get as much done before I pick Henry up from Nursery. Already time is catching up on me.
I can't believe another shooting has happened again, how are these people getting hold of these guns.
My heart goes out to Jo Cox's, the Labour MP, family and friends, can not imagine the heartache and sadness they must be feeling. I feel for her two children who will now be without a mother, and no death is nice but to happen in the way it did, is horrific.
However as continuing on from my Monday Check-In Blog, we can not allow these sorts of acts of evil to another human being, to make us live in fear but to continue on. The one thing from this incident, you can take from it, is you just never know what is around the corner so you do, especially when you have children is make every day count.
My week with has been good, we have all, including my husband been enjoying the football. Particularly the England and Wales game. I do think Iceland national side were surprising, they came out attacking as if to say "We may be the under dogs but we have nothing to lose" and good on them.
The new Apps I have been trying to help plan my week and days, is one called the Business Calendar APP (BIZ) I couldn't find a link for it, but I have provided a picture below, it is in the Playstore and you can link this up to your google calendar, and one called the SplenDO, again hooks up with your google Calendar and available from Playstore. I use this to schedule my YouTube videos.
The annoying thing about them is the constant notifications, as I have put reminders on them, but some automatically come up, and so my phone is continuously going off to remind me of what is coming up in my planner.
I suppose that is the point, but can become annoying after a while.
Have had to turn off notifications at night as it will not stop. Also I still have to write it down to get it into my brain. I do think it is important to keep notes written down because if your phone or computer breaks, and I used to say this at work a lot, where everything was internet or intranet based, once it all goes down, your b***ocked and so I do still find the old fashion way still better in that fact that I don't loose everything and it is in my filofax should I need to see it.
The advantage of going more digital is when out and about you don't have to keep writing lists on little pieces of paper or in a notebook you have it there on your phone. So it does have it advantages to go digital.
It is Father's day this weekend and I have card and prezzie at the ready for Henry to give to his daddy. It is my Husband's third father's day and he has been a great support, as a husband and a dad. He will change Henry's nappy at night and in the mornings, help with feeding Henry and bath times, so I do think as much as I can strangle him at times, he has earned his father's day celebration on Sunday.
Good weekend everyone.
Many thanks for reading,
So lost track of time today, and soon I will be off picking up Henry again from Nursery. I have completed some of my to do list today, doing the most important tasks first. I still got bits to do, so thought before I do anything else I will write my Friday Blog.
Tomorrow I return to my Part-time job so Friday's are getting bits done like any laundry that I have left to do, washed as I like to have any washing that needs to be done by the weekend. Sorting bits out, like today I want to sort out my wardrobe, as I got this hanging clothes organiser but it isn't working for me, they sink down as soon you put something in them. I keep looking at it, thinking "No, not working". I think I am going to go for hanging everything again, in my wardrobe, until I think of another method. The issues is I need more hangers.
The one thing I have begun this week is to go more digital, in terms of doing my to lists, shopping list, using youtube to play some tunes whilst I workout. Did this, this morning whilst running on the treadmill and love it. I have downloaded an APP Called Cozi it's a family organiser APP, and you can keep your shopping list on there, keep list of recipes, to do lists, connect your existing phone planner to it and it will show up, as soon as you go into the APP any up and coming events you have in your planner.
I have also been trying some other APP's for my photographs as my mum told me about one called MySketch but with that one you have to pay for it. Costs £1.12 on the playstore. I don't really want to pay for the APP so tried some of the free APPs which was similar such as Photo Sketch but was no good at all, and couldn't get out of the image once I took one. It kept coming up saying the APP has stopped working, only 2 minutes from when it had installed.
After trying a few of the photo sketch APP's I gave up and installed a free APP for my phone, which was Photo Editor. It's goodish, not as good as want I have seen MySketch do, so I may still download this APP, but it still gives them a different look and can make it look like a portrait rather than a photo.
I now even use the 7 minute workout APP, there are quite a few but the one I have is free, of course, and is called the 7min Full Workout, and it gives you a set of exercises that you can do in 7 minutes. So if you are like me can't afford the gym then why not try this out. You don't need a full half and hour or hour to work out. You just need to get up and get going.
Let me know of what APP's you have tried that have been useful in scheduling, getting fit or photo editing. It would be great to hear from you.
Anyway I am going to leave it there and I will blog again next week.
Have a great weekend everyone and see you next week,
Yes this weekend my husband and my niece celebrate their birthdays. Ruby is having a party, and I am taking my husband out, whilst my son is celebrating Ruby's birthday too. Then on Sunday he is off to another party, to see more children, so he will definitely be having a good time.
Today was his second official day at Nursery. I am due to pick him up fairly soon. He did cry a bit when we got there, but when I called to check on him just after 9 O'Clock he was fine. If he is anything like he was on Wednesday as he had no nap during his nursery session, he will be shattered by the time I pick him up and will have nap when I bring him home.
