Roald Dahl Quotes To Get You Through The Day

I’m pretty sure everyone knows Roald Dahl at this point. You have probably even come across some of his work whether it was by reading his books or just walking past them in the book shops. I’m pretty sure he is most famous for writing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda and The BFG, as well as other short stories and children’s books.

He definitely did leave us with some grate tales from his imagination that helped us fuel our own, but he also taught us some very important lessons about life through his work.

Young Carers Awareness Day 2020

Young Carers Awareness Day is an annual event, led by Carers Trust, and is taking place today.

Everyday, thousands of young people in the UK help to look after someone in their family who is ill, disabled or in a situation where they need help.

Young Carers Awareness Day is an annual event, led by Carers Trust. It raises awareness of the challenges faced by young carers and campaigns for greater support for them.

Recent research has shown that as many as one in five secondary school children may be a young carer. A lot of these children may have became a carer at a much younger age too.

Caring for someone can be isolating and stressful and it can put a lot of pressure on young people. Having so much pressure on them can negatively impact their education, have an effect on their future chances.

This is why Carers Trust want to make sure that all young carers get the help and support that they need and deserve. That is why they have launched the Count Me In! campaign.

Politicians in all UK nations can help by:

  • Monitoring the implementation of legislation relating to young carers, including how many young carers are identified and supported.
  • Make young carers count by collecting and acting upon national attendance, attainment and wellbeing data on all young carers identified by compulsory education providers.
  • Ensuring local authorities receive appropriate funding so they are able to fulfil their legal duties to provide young carers and help their families with the support that they need.

You can download these letters and use them as templates when writing to your MP, Member of the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly Member:

The Most Magical Quotes From Frozen II

I am literally not able to get over the fact that Frozen II has been out for about two months at this point. Frozen II was realised in the UK on the 22nd of November, 2019 and I didn’t actually watch it until the 26th of November, 2019. That wait nearly killed me!

Since Frozen II’s release, I have watched it quite a few times in the cinema and I would happily watch it even more. Since I’m still not over how great it was, I thought I would share some of my favourite and most magical Frozen II quotes here on my blog.

WWE Royal Rumble 2020 Predictions

The WWE Royal Rumble 2020 in on Sunday, January 26th, live on the WWE Network. I’m pretty excited as I only fully got into WWE last year for the Royal Rumble 2019 so I’m a bit of a fan over the pay-per-view. It’s the time of year where all the wrestlers point at the WrestleMania sign and the crowd all cheer.

As always the PPV will feature the 30-person Royal Rumble matches for both the women and the men. There’s also matches for the Universal Championship and the Women’s Championships.

Here’s the match card as we know:
1. Men’s Royal Rumble Match
2. Women’s Royal Rumble Match
3. Strap Match for the Universal Championship: The Fiend Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Daniel Bryan
4. Raw Women’s Championship Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Asuka
5. Smackdown Women’s Championship Match: Bayley (c) vs. Lacey Evans
6. Falls Count Anywhere Match: Roman Reigns vs. King Corbin
7. Sheamus vs. Shorty G
8. United States Championship Match: Andrade (c) vs. Humberto Carrillo

I figured that I would share my predictions and wishes for the Royal Rumble because it’s a fun way to get involved.

My Social Media Strategies For 2020

I realise that we are over halfway through the first month of 2020 but I feel like sharing this post will help myself and while I’m here, it might help you out too.

During 2019, I grew gradually on most of my social media accounts. I think that the only platform that didn’t grow much was Instagram as I didn’t put in much effort on that platform at all.

Don’t get me wrong, I do love Instagram for the Stories and keeping up with people’s lives but I never know what to post on my feed which makes my photo uploads a little bit messy so people won’t care for my account, which is fine because everyone is allowed to enjoy or not enjoy whatever they want.

The Ultimate List Of Bullet Journal Collection Ideas

I consider myself to be a part-time bullet journal user. Back in 2016, I was a hardcore bullet journal enthusiast. Now that it’s 2020, my life is getting busier and I don’t have time to make every page look beautiful and Instagram-worthy. The main thing that stopped me from using my bullet journal was that I’m not super artistic. My drawings and doodles tend to be a little bit all over the place which made me worried that I wasn’t ‘good enough’ to be part of the BuJo Community.

Anyway, now I have started to realise that each journal owner is unique. We don’t have to do things that way that all these professional planners do it. So, my mission from now on is to start using my bullet journal the way that I want to.
