JACKSPRAT

28TH MARCH 2020

Jack Sprat Could Eat No Fat. Jack Sprat could eat no fat, His wife could eat no lean; And so betwixt them both, They lick'd the platter clean.


At its origins “Jack Sprat” was known as a proverb, and the term used to refers at short people in the 16th century.


Jack Sprat” Lyrics

Jack Sprat could eat no fat.
His wife could eat no lean.
And so between them both, you see,
They licked the platter clean
Jack ate all the lean,
Joan ate all the fat.
The bone they picked it clean,
Then gave it to the cat










AFTER READING THIS RHYME AGAIN WOULD YOU NOT SAY THAT IT IS STILL RELEVANT TODAY?


SO WHEN YOU GO SHOPPING AT THE MOMENT TRY TO BE MORE FRUGAL AND TO STOP “PANIC BUYING.”

25TH MARCH 2020 DRINK MORE WATER

25TH MARCH 2020

DRINK MORE WATER

IF ALL THE WORLD WAS PAPER AND ALL THE SEA WAS INK.”
IF ALL THE TREES WERE BREAD AND CHEESE.”
WHAT WOULD WE HAVE TO DRINK?”

"If All The World Were Paper ' is an old English folk song that dates back to at least the reign of Charles I. The song, with six verses, is printed in "Witt's Recreations" described as a book of 'ingenious conceites' and 'merrie medecines', published in 1641.

OVER THE NEXT COUPPLE OF MONTHS WHILST THE WHOLE WORD OS DEALING WITH THE CURRENT OUT BREAK. THE ONE THING THAT WE NEED TO THINK ABOUT IS WATER.

ALREADY THIS YEAR WE HAD ISSUES WHERE WE WERE HAVING SO MUCH RAIN IN THE UK THAT IT WAS CAUSING FLOODING.

YET THE TABLES COULD TURN WITH IN DAYS DEPENDING UPON THE WEATHER AND THE AMOUNT OF WATER THAT WE HAVE IN RESERVOIRS AND USAGE.

THE AVERAGE PERSON SHOULD DRINK AROUND 8 GLASSES OF WATER PER DAY. LIVING ON THE CANAL NETWORK WE WOULD USUALLY FILL UP THE WATER TANK ABOUT EVERY 2 WEEKS WITH A FAMILY OF FOUR ON BOARD.

SO OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS THINK ABOUT YOUR WATER USAGE AND THINK ABOUT HOW WE COULD LOOK AT CUTTING BACK BUT STILL STAY HEALTHY.


WITH EVERYONE ALL MOST ALL OVER THE WORLD ON LOCK DOWN, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO POP TO YOUR LOCAL SHOP FOR TEA, COFFEE, MILK, JUICE OR SOMETHING ELSE.

SO IT WILL BE WATER THAT WE WILL ALL BE DRINKING (COUNCIL POP.)

MOST WILL DRINK STRAIGHT FROM THE TAPE, FILTERED OR BOILED.

SO PLEASE THINK ABOUT YOUR WATER USAGE EPICALLY DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS.

PLAN NOW!

I HAVE INCLUDED SOME USEFUL LINKS BELOW.




REMEMBER

IF ALL THE WORLD WAS PAPER AND ALL THE SEA WAS INK.”
IF ALL THE TREES WERE BREAD AND CHEESE.”
WHAT WOULD WE HAVE TO DRINK?”

Time Management, Home Schooling, Working from Home

18th March 2020

Time Management.  Time Management, Home Schooling, Working from Home

Over the next couple of weeks time management is going to be very import to everyone. How many time have you said to your self “their is never enough hours in the day.”?

Over the next few week that is how I belie many of use are going to start to feel not to mention very stressed out and tired, both mentally and physically.

All I can say is take each day, day by day and make sure that you try to eat well and sleep well.

Many people will be currently looking at changing there life style with looking at working from home and home school their children.

Many of us will not just be worry about out selves but family and friends to.

So what can we do?

The fist thing that I am aiming to do with my family is aim to stick to the same routine that I would have stuck to as much as possible with a few changes thrown in.

My aim is to still wake up at the same time every day, eat at the same time every day and sleep at he same time every day.

With my children at home full time and not able to go any where I know that this will be very challenging and stressful. I will aim to keep each day fun and interesting for them. At the same time I will aim to carry on with my own every day routine like cooking, cleaning, taking care of the baby and working on my book.

I will start by breaking the day down into units of 20 minuets and aiming to do 20 minuet tasks just like I would do at eh weekend.

20 minuets breakfast
20 minuets get dressed
20 minuets work
20 minuets rest
20 minuets play
20 minuets snack
20 minuets rest
20 minuets work
20 minuets play
20 minuets work
20 play
20 lunch
20 rest

20 minuets (you get the picture) I am only looking at 20 minuet blocks to start off with due to the change of having 3 children at home full time and confined to a small space will be challenging.

I know that my attention span and able to do any thing is about 20 minuets. To chive more than this it take time and practice epically for children.

Some time my children will be happy to engage in an activity for longer than 20 minutes like watching TV or playing with cars.

But they can not so that every day, I would like then to continue with their education and I will be
need to look at fun ways to achieve this whilst maintaining day to day living too.

So I will see what support and guidance is offered to support me before Friday and then start to plans my daily activates.

"SHOPPING SMART"

14th March 2020 “SHOPPING SMART!”

Before anyone one goes out and starts buying any thing next week, maybe this weekend is the time to look a “SHOPPING SMART.” Take some time over the next 72 hours to clean your home and pull out everything that you have in your kitchen and bathroom; even check the attic or outbuildings.

How may of use will find food and other sinlessly supplies that we have forgotten about?

Also take this time to have a “CLEAN UP AND CLEAR OUT.” so that you know what it is that you really NEED.

Because at the moment it is TIME that is going to effect everyone in the long run and their are other things that I believe that people should be doing other that “PANIC BUYING” items that they think that they may need.

At the moment no one really knows what is going to happen in the next 3sec. 3min, 3hours, 3days, 3weeks, 3months, or 3 years.

To me 3 is the magic number. So proving you have three of everything that you may NEED, then it is a start.

  • It is the time that it takes of most products that we need to last. (food, warmth, shelver)
  • It is the length of time that it can can for something do be achieved or completed.(food, warmth, shelver)
  • It is usually the amount of time someone may have to have suitable amount of, food, warmth and shelter.
  • It it probably about the amount that people have to be financial secure and get (food, warmth, shelver)
  • It is usually the length of time one can aim to stay healthy, even if they are only living on baked beans. (food, warmth, shelver)

It is these 3 key things that everyone needs on a daily basis to stay health in mind, body and spirit.
(food, warmth, shelver)

So take some time to sit down over the next 72 hours and see what it is you need and then think of the needs of those around you.

Your family
Your Friends
Your Work Colleges
Your neighbours
Your local Community
Your Regional Community
Your National Community
Your Country.

Beacuse if you can not provide these three essential things for you self first in order to stay fit and well (food, warmth, shelver)

How are you going to provide then to other people.

So look at shopping smart because if we do not then what is to say the Government will not start steeping in and doing that for us.

I for one do not want that two happen, this should be a last resort.

That way when you do your shopping you know that you only need to buy one or up to three of something that you really need.

I always look at this way “ONE MEANS NONE.”
