The children are back at school soon and before you know it your days will be filled with homework, lunches and after school clubs. It can be hard to keep up with it all so we have designed this weekly school schedule for you.
Print it off weekly or if you have a laminater just one copy that you can wipe off each week. There is space for homework, PE, lunches (my daughter is having a mixture of hot dinners and pack lunches), after school clubs, trips and any other school events.
We really hope this is helpful and keeps you organised!
I’ve been pregnant through the heat of summer both times and it’s not fun. The little bundle of joy you are carrying is a radiator and it can be tough going in the warm weather.
I asked some of my friends to share their best tips on how to stay cool when pregnant this summer.
They are not all practical (Merry) but some are very funny!
Umbrella up, cool drink and feet in the paddling pool Carolin Mader
Don’t be pregnant. No nookie after September until January. True story Merry Raymond
I used a product called Magicool and highly recommend it, don’t go out in the hottest hours and always try to wear light cotton clothing. Kelly Finn
Ceiling fans and fans in bedrooms, feet up and plenty of fluids Amy Sheridan
Feet in cool water, plenty cold drinks, shade and breeze. Ooh and when I was expecting I wore Evans special shorts made of tights material to stop chafing under dresses/skirts Becky Willoughby
Always wear thin layers built up, even when it seems like it’s not going to be a warm day, that way you can strip down layer by layer instead of being forced to choose between a jumper or a vest when the weather changes while you’re out and about. Emily Leary
Stay out of the sun, or if you must then float in a body of water, like lake, sea, river, pool. Monika Mumonthebrink
My sister had a summer pregnancy and I remember her eating lots of ice! Samantha Beharry
A cooling foot spray to take out and about with you Denise
Have a cool water spray in the fridge and pop it into your bag if you are going out. Clare Nicholas
The kids are off school and they are bored and want to go out which means spending money. Summer can be an expensive time so here is some tips on how to save this summer.
Take Your Own Food
Food can be one of the most expensive parts of a family day trip so take your own. Pack a picnic and save those pennies (or pounds). Don’t go overboard with food as you could end up overspending. Pack each person their own pack lunch, get them to help so you pack what they like and there is no waste.
Leftovers are great for picnics, pasta, rice, chicken and potatoes can be eaten cold. We rather like cold lasagne!
Take Your Own Drinks
Bottles and cartons can be so expensive to buy especially if you are a larger family. Pack your own drinks; pop them in the freezer the night before so they are extra cold. By the time you get to your destination they would have melted.
Check the venue you are going many have drinking water points where you can refill your drinks.
Buy Your Tickets Online
You can save up to 54% at some theme parks buy buying your tickets online. Always check before you go to see what offers they are running.
Have a search for free local events. Checkout your local council website they should have a list of events.
Coca Cola are running Park Lives Events in Newcastle, Birmingham and the London Borough of Newham. Take part in these free activities including buggy fit, tai chi, bowling taster, Futsal, football and family fitness.
Embrace Second Hand
Keep your children entertained by embracing the charity shop. They are a treasure trove of toys, books and DVD’s. Give them £1 a see what they can get. They will love the challenge and will have something new to play with.
