It’s The Right Thing To Do

So I talked last night about whether or not I was going to load this piece, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s ok. The position I was in was caused by rising food and energy costs and lack of services for my disabled son, so we ended up getting ourselves into just debt trying to keep our heads above water.

As such I’m baring all to you, because when I launch my company you’ll know who’s gunning for you and that a person like me wont let you down. That I’m a real person, not someone who’s not in touch with society today. I believe something just has to change and if the government won’t help, then we will just have to adapt and survive the best way we can.

And it’s people like these guys who save lives in the UK everyday. To normal families and now working families like my husband and I, the cost of living is too much to bare especially with what they have done taking my sons disability money away for several weeks because I was late returning the forms. I was in hospital for god sake and it’s not like his Brain Damage or Autism are going to suddenly get better L

I frequently panic about how we’re going to do everything and if it weren’t for these people saving my family with a food parcel then my kids would have gone hungry.

I had the choice to move back here to my hometown of Salisbury, into a nice house with enough bedrooms for all of us…. or stay put in a horrid house that was too small, run down and just wasn’t safe. But the funding didn’t come through in time so instead of losing the tenancy we moved with our food money. A risk yes, but we had no choice we had waited so long on exchange sites and 2 years was long enough.

My friend told me about the food bank their called “The Trussell Trust” and they were with me within 2 hours with 4 boxes of food. They didn’t charge me or judge they just wanted to restore my faith in humanity again and they certainly did that. My children were so happy they received food that they hadn’t seen for a long time. Nice things but nutritional balanced unlike what I could have afforded at the time.

I hope you don’t judge me for this, as my position is tough enough especially when the programmers hired to code my website did that to me and took all of my funding.
So my friends, the Trussell Trust are organising a Christmas appeal so if you’ve any food tins in your cupboard that you don’t like or want, please follow these links as there will be numerous drop off points in supermarkets all over our country or chances are there will even be a foodbank in your town, you just don’t know it yet… I didn’t until I needed them x x

3 new banks open every week one word for that and that’s    WOW

THEY ARE ESTIMATED TO BE HELPING OVER 200,000 FAMILIES IN THE NEXT YEAR

THIS YEAR IT WAS 126,000+ IN THE UK

I pledge that because they helped my family when we launch we will be having an annual foodbank bonanza appeal to raise awareness and to say thank you for saving us x x

So molly and the team if you see this it’s for you guys x x

Will You Judge Me?

I am toying with an idea, whether I should put something on my blog

Its to direct people to a fantastic page about some friends who have helped me.

But you would also meet me, but I’m not looking at my best 🙂

So what would you do? Go :p in the face of society and not care about being judged…..or

Would you hold it back and hope your friends get enough coverage on their own x

I will sleep on it

It all comes down to the fear of being rejected by society. How silly to feel this way

Love to all x

How to drive business to your website using linkedin.

1. Create a killer profile.

The better looking your LinkedIn profile is — meaning professional and complete — the more qualified you’ll appear to your audience and the more interested people will be to check out your site.

2. Increase your connections

1st degree connections equal more clicks and traffic to your site simply because the more people you have looking at your site and your updates, the more views you’ll receive. Your goal should be to have at least 500 1st degree connections and continue growing from there.

3. Update your status often.

The more content you share, the more opportunity people have to see it and engage with it. Aim to update your status once or twice a day, or more if it makes sense for your brand.

4. Join targeted groups

Look for groups that are related to your brand or business. Some groups on LinkedIn have…

AMAZING PEOPLE AND AN AMAZING DAY

Today i have spent time with some amazing people and it’s been an amazing day!

So why so weary?

I feel a little emotional now as people keep telling me I’m an inspiration, but I don’t see why. I’m just doing what anyone else would do.

This question is causing a little conflict inside me because if this isn’t what a normal person would do then why not? That plays on my mind and will always continue to be painful to understand. The only way I have found to be comfortable in my own skin is by helping others.

I think that’s why I get on so well with all the people at the Trussell Trust. They keep saying thank you to me but isn’t that backwards. They were the ones who fed my family in their hours of need.

Do you know just how fabulous they really are, and me doing that interview/story on the BBC about how my family has been struggling, has actively made people phone and donate 😀

I am very humbled to think people could relate to our situation enough to give and care. That’s the world I want to be in, one where we all can be assured that no matter what if something happens someone will be there to catch you. And when you’re back on your feet you would do the same.

Having my children has been the biggest adventure yet and Rowan my disabled son has been a great teacher too. The amount of pain my son goes through on a daily basis with his neck or hip must be very hard he just laughs or plays and has fun. That’s the real inspiration, not me.

A very kind lady today said considering I’m so ill, I look very well (love her) and how do I do it?????? um ????

I keep being asked how do I find the strength to do what I do. That’s easy I just look at my son and see the milestones he has crossed. That baby boy, who they said would never walk or talk….

Is now running free and laughing with Mummy x x
