In the past few months BG's confidence has really grown and she love to talk and interact with other children, especially the older ones.
Today two boys who were 6 and 7 were playing shops underneath the slide, BG asked is she could play and they said yes. I normally move her away from the older children as I don't want her to annoy them plus at only 2 3/4 she is too young to play most of their games. As they were playing shops I let her play ( I was right next to them), what I didn't realise was it was a weapon and food shop (their words) and to be honest I was really shocked.
BG was being the shop keeper and they has for "rocket launchers" "old styles rifles" and "smokeless grenades" how do they know this stuff??
I very quickly moved BG on the slide and then the swings as I was not comfortable with her 'selling' guns and weapons. She kept wanting to go back and play and eventually I took her to get a ice cream, when we came back they were still there. She immediately ran over to play, with them so I had to do some fancy footwork and got her to play on something else.
BG didn't understand what they were asking for and in the future I will be keeping her away from the older children.
Even now I feel uncomfortable at the thought of such young boys basically playing 'Arm dealers'.
Am I overreacting?

I am getting really, really annoyed with those blog posts that tell bloggers how to blog. You know the ones I mean not the ones that share practical and technical knowledge but those who feel they have the right to judge how other people write and run their blogs.
I'm not quite sure who gave them the right to sit in judgement on what other people do but I wish they would f*ck off, get a life and keep their nose out of other people's business.
Write what you like, when you like and how you like! That is the beauty of blogging there should be no rules.
If you don't like it don't read it.
Ok rant over.

I have the great honour of setting up the playlist for party but I need your help. I want you to tell me what you want to listen to at the MAD's.
It can be a new track or a golden oldie as long as I can find it on spotify then I can add it to the playlist. Don't forget it is a celebration so nothing too sombre please.
All you need to do is leave the name and artist in the comments below and I will add them to the playlist. You can suggest more than one track.
The closing date for suggestions in 1st September.
I am so excited about the ceremony it should be an amazing night.
Here's a song to get you in the mood....

And not just because I am in lots of pain and really shouldn't be on the laptop, but because it probably means something is wrong. I don't mean "OMG I am dying wrong", I mean in a I suffer with depression, insomnia and I'm a bit stressed type wrong.
I have suffered on and off with headaches for years a bit like my depression, coincidence? I am not sure if my depression brings on my headaches or my headaches bring on depression but when I have one the other is not far behind.
I have had scans in the past to make sure there is nothing sinister about my headaches and they didn't find anything, the consultant just told me I am just a person that suffers with headaches, what a great help that was!
So now I have this headache and it won't go away and I can't work because it hurts to be on the computer more than 15 minutes at a time. I can't sleep because I am stressed because now I have even more work to do and its piling up and I am sure the lack of sleep is making my headache worse!!! arrrrrghhhhhhhhh
I am now trapped in this sleepless, painful, stressful circle and I am not quite sure how to break out of it.
I need help, or advice or sleep, or all three!

I went shopping with my Dad today to our local outlet shopping mall when I spotted this LBD in Gap.
Its was £5.99 in the sale but they also had an extra 30% off so it cost £4.19!
It fits really well and looks great on, so I am a happy bunny. You should always have a LBD in your wardrobe!
