what i’m watching | june edition

what i’m watching | june edition

Ok, so I have been so very slack on this for the past few months. I wanted to post last month, but I just didn’t have the time, so I am going to do a bumper edition of what I have been watching.  I really hope you get some inspiration on some good TV to watch. If you have any recommendations then please do leave them in the comments below as I am always on the lookout for new programmes to watch! So without too much waffling, this is what I have been watching this month (give or take)!

This was gripping form the start and had me hooked from the first 5 minutes. It was so intriguing had me guessing till the end and had so many twist and turns. Its currently on Netflix and its something I would definiltley recommend you watch if you have not done so already. Its only eight episodes, so a very quick binge watch!

Widowed surgeon Tom has struggled to raise his two daughters alone following his wife’s death a year ago. Things seem to be on the right track for the family, who live in a gated community, because they have close friends nearby and Tom is in the early stages of a new relationship. But the situation takes a turn for the worse when Jenny, Tom’s oldest daughter, goes missing along with her boyfriend. Tom enlists girlfriend Sophie, a police detective, to help locate the teens, but her new partner is working her own agenda. As the investigation intensifies, Tom unearths dark secrets about the people closest to him in his affluent neighborhood.

The drama series was created by mystery novelist Harlan Coben. Another TV adaptions of his book was The Five, which first aired on SKY. If you can somehow get hold of it and watch that, then that is always a very good watch.

I have mentioned Suits quite a few times over the last few months. I am now fully up-to date and am eager fro season eight to satrt. Im pretty gutted about Megan Markle and Patrick J Adams departing, but you know her new job is much more important these days!

In need of an associate, big-time Manhattan corporate lawyer Harvey Specter hires the only guy who impresses him — college dropout Mike Ross. The fact that Ross isn’t actually a lawyer isn’t lost on Specter, who believes his new right-hand man is a legal prodigy with the book smarts of a Harvard law grad and the street smarts of a hustler. However, in order to keep their jobs, the charade must remain strictly between these two unconventional thinkers.

I didn’t start this series, until my mum and her partner told me I must watch it. I think I watched all four episodes in a day. It had me wanting more after each episode, so I decided to curb that feeling I juts needed to watch them all. I managed to work out in episode three what the outcome was. It was definitely a really good watch. Unfortunately its now unavailable on the ITV player, I would keep an eye out on its sisters channels though as I would recommend you watch it!

I cannot do this post, without mentioning the thing that is literally taking over so many peoples lives. I started watching this series last year and I was hooked. I’m only watchinh it because I was interested to see if people could actually find love. It proved to me that it can work. Quite a few that took part last year have gone on to get married. One pair has even had a baby. This year, its a bit crazy, a bit out of my comfort zone. I cant help but watch and join in with the general public airing their opinions of the snakes in the villa. Its been pretty brutal, not just by the boys, but the girls have started to turn! Are you watching Love Island? Have you been sucked in to the 9pm schedule?

simple ways to help your children choose a career path

simple ways to help your children choose a career path

Children have imagination and love exploring various subjects. At a young age of infancy, a child wants to be many things. It is the responsibility of parents to gauge the ability, skill, and talent of children over a period of time and encourage them to pursue a career path that suits their interest and ability. At no point in their growing age should you pressurize them to make a choice that they do not want to. Let them grow their individuality and flourish in a career path in which they can excel. Here is the rundown of simple ways to get started to make your child choose the right career path.

Encourage various talents

At a younger age, encourage your child to develop various talents. Send them to arts, sports, and creative courses. Let them experience science, technology, and sports as well. Help your child explore multiple fields and gauge their talent and excellence from these fields. If your child shows more interest in creative pursuits let them explore this field in depth. Do not force your ambitions onto your child as this can only shrink their confidence and ability to learn. Get more insights and tips about child career development from Access2Knowledge.org.

Your kid is not an extension of you

It is a wrong notion to think that your child is the same as you in their thoughts and notions. Encourage children to develop individuality and develop unique traits and thinking that makes them stand out no matter what field they choose. Identify their strengths and weaknesses. Let them choose their passion and work on their strengths to let them flourish in their chosen path even if it is not the mainstream. Do not force your children to choose a career path that they do not like or enjoy.

Let your child choose their tribe

Your children must choose the tribe, which should influence them in a good way. They must be able to add to the value of your child’s life. Analyse the company your child chooses and cut them some slack. Do not be too harsh in judging the company your children choose. Guide them at every stage.

Find a professional mentor

A professional mentor will be able to develop the personality of the child and help them set clear goals. The mentor must be able to instill drive and aspirations in the life of your child. They must be able to bring out the best in them and let them enhance their strengths. 

Be patient and show endurance

Let your children commit mistakes. Show patience in letting your child grow into a wonderful being. Let them develop patience in the course of choosing a career path as well. Teach them the value of patience and endurance. Let them be the best person they can be. 

Parents and mentors play a vital role in the development of the career of their children. Parents need to cater to the mental and emotional needs of their children to let them grow into amazing beings.

Pregnancy Care: When To Call Your Doctor

center parcs

center parcs

You know when you wait so long for a holiday, 365 days in fact, and it arrives and then its over before you know it. Yeah that. We have started going to Elvedon, Center Parcs for the past 3 years. Its been wonderful and something we all look forward to. When I say all, I mean 14 of us. We literally countdown the days from the moment we are back.

3 years ago, I had never been to a Center Parcs and to be honest I wasn’t overly fussed about going, but now? I wished I actually lived there all year round. Its so beautiful, tranquil and serene and getting to swim most days and walk around the woods with the pooch was just bliss. We sat alfresco, eating, drinking and laughing. We were so lucky with the weather. Predictions of rain and thunderstorms most days, but we managed to escape all that and it barely rained all week.

We all tried new things, new activities and made the most of spending time together. Park trips, disco’s, boat rides, archery and so much more. Its been such a wonderful week away. Time spent with my favourites and time spent away from the norm.

Just a few snaps of our week.
