Posting Out Of Pure Boredom

It’s been ages since I have actually posted an actual update lol. Right now though i’m totally bored, so thought i’d do a post.

What’s been happening lately? Hmmmmmmmmm…. I have been busy with my
Essential Skills
Assignment. I have to design a brochure for a holiday destination that i would like to go to. I have chosen to do a brochure on the french alps, as i would love to go skiing sometime. We have to remember all that we have learnt, and put it into practice. We have got until April for the first draft, then we have to desplay our work to the moderator who will come in at the end of May.

It’s quite boring at times, and really pissed me off sometimes.

What else? My poor phone had to be taken to phone hospital a couple of weeks ago. My power button had become a bit fubared, and it was so bad that it was turning off and on without me doing anything to it.

I took it in to Vodafone, to see what they’d say. They were going to charge me 40 pound, and send it away. Before they filled out the paper work for sending it away, they suggested i go to a phone repair shop up the street. I was a bit hessitant at first, as i wasn’t sure if they would be that good. I took it up anyway, and i am so glad i did!!!! I got a new power button soldared on, and a new casing for the phone complete with the new button. I got it done within the hour, and it only cost me £23!!!! So that was deffinetly brilliant. Compared to Vodafone!!! I would be still waiting on it now and could be a hell of alot lighter in cash. I am so glad they recommended me going to the phone repair shop.

Other than that, nothing much has been happening. I’ve just been at the
Cedar Foundation
Doing my volunteering, and tomorrow, in fact, i am going to go out afterwords with one of the people i volunteer with. I am looking forward to it, as we have so much fun together.

Now though, i just want to sleep. I am really tired for some reason. I swore when i wrote this blog that i’d never do this type of entry, but since i am so bored, and have only posted about the Archers, i thought i should at least post about me and my life.

Anyway better get back to the assignment now. Hopefully i’ll have something worth while to write soon, although i will still write The Archers spoilers and that. At least the bordom is cured now anyway.


Sporty Girl Overweight, Says NHS

This was posted on the 19th February, but who cares. I completely forgot about it.

I was totally shocked when I read
This Article
I mean how the hell can they say that? That is a load of balls!!!!! I mean a 3 Stone odd girl overweight? It’s getting rediculous now. Is it any wonder that there is Anorexia and the like? I don’t understand some people.

Anyway for anyone curious, and who can’t be bothered clicking the link,here it is.
Sporty girl from Poole is overweight, says NHS

Five-year-old Lucy Davies’ parents have been told she is overweight
The parents of a sporty five-year-old girl have received a letter from the NHS saying she is overweight.

Lucy Davies’ height and weight were measured as part of a government programme at her school in Poole.

Her mother, Susan, 38, said the 3ft 9in-tall girl, who weighs 3st 9lb, regularly played outdoors and took part in ballet, cheerleading and walks.

Bournemouth and Poole Primary Care Trust, which did the tests, said parents should be aware of the risks.

Lucy’s Body Mass Index (BMI) is 17.7, which for an adult would be considered slightly underweight.

But officials said that for a young girl, this meant she was 1% outside the healthy category and could be at risk of heart disease and cancer.

The tests were part of the National Child Measurement Programme, which is being carried out in schools across the country on children aged four to five and 10 to 11.

If they are overweight, this will cause many problems for them as they grow older and we need to tackle this head-on

Lucy’s father Anthony, 41, said the letter they received outlined how she could also be vulnerable to high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.

Mrs Davies told BBC News she was more “bemused” by the letter than angry.

She said she always took the health of her children seriously and gives them five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

‘No diet’

Family meals are always home-cooked from scratch, she added.

But she said she was not going to be putting Lucy on a diet and would be carrying on with meals as normal.

Lucy’s mother said she was ”stunned” at the letter about her daughter’s weight

Bournemouth and Poole Primary Care Trust said the results were aimed at parents and were not given to children directly.

Dr Adrian Dawson, director of public health, apologised for any concern the letter caused and added that the trust had received some positive feedback about its approach.

He added: “We will be looking at the language and the processes that we use, but our priority is about ensuring the ongoing good health of our children.”

Dr Dawson said that parents were the only people who could affect a change in lifestyle through healthy eating, meal-time portion control and daily exercise.

“It is right that they are aware of the consequences for their children,” he added.

Let me know what you think!!!!! By the way, there was a “Flash movie” in this article that was an interview with the girls’ mum, but it didn’t display correctly. You can get it from the main article though.
