 News,Travel,Children,Easter,UK Breaks

If you’re not going away over the Easter holidays, you may be struggling to think of ways to keep the kids entertained. But you don’t need to get on a plane to have fun; there are plenty of options on our doorstep that will keep both you and the children amused.

Here we offer 10 suggestions for days out over Easter, as well as tips to keep the costs down.

UK city days out

A day out in one of the UK’s cities could be a great way to teach your children more about the country they live in and, whether you choose to explore on foot, on an open-top bus or even on a boat, you’ll learn all sorts of interesting facts about the UK’s history.

Why not soak up the atmosphere in London in the run up to the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations? The Oxford vs Cambridge boat race takes place on April 7, so if you want to watch this historic sporting event, plan your trip around that.

If you want to visit any of the big attractions in the capital, pre-book tickets to save on entry costs and take a look at MoneySupermarket’s vouchers channel to take advantage of offers. Current money off vouchers include 20% off entrance to the London Dungeon, 20% off the price of the Doctor Who tour and 20% off the price of City Cruises down the River Thames.
Other good options for city day trips include York, Manchester, Chester, Bristol, Bath and Edinburgh. 

Countryside retreats

Or, if you would prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, make a packed lunch and head into the British countryside to explore for the day. If your child is a bookworm, a trip to the Lake District to learn all about Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth will inspire them while sports-mad children will love learning how to surf on one of the UK’s many beautiful (and often deserted) beaches in areas such as Cornwall, Devon and Northumberland. 

If you decide to explore the area over a day or two, you could take a look at the late availability of countryside cottages and B&Bs, and if you travel by train, make sure you book in advance to save on walk-up fees.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

If your children aren’t keen on surfing, but love the seaside, a day out in a traditional British seaside resort such as Blackpool, Brighton, Bournemouth or Weston-Super-Mare eating fish and chips, walking down the beach and playing in the amusement arcades is sure to keep all of the family entertained.

And, if you want to visit one of the attractions by the sea with the kids, check online for discount codes before you pack your bucket and spade. Current offers on MoneySupermarket include 20% off entry to the Sealife Centre in Blackpool and 20% off SeaQuarium in Weston-Super-Mare.

Easter service

Easter eggs galore

Some for the rich

Some for the poor

Eat our lunch

Then off to pray

Thanking God

For a wonderful day

Time to relax

Time to enjoy

Our festive break

Watch TV

Family around

Get out the eggs

Indulge and enjoy

The company of our friends

Then off to pray

Once more

Thanking God

For a wonderful day

EASTER T

Easter time is upon us

Spring has come at last

Displaying all her beauty

Like a carpet she has cast

 

Out of the dreary winter

With colours of every shade

A breath-taking panorama

That Mother Nature has made

 

Frogs in the Lilly ponds

With frogspawn all around

Soon there will be tadpoles

Jumping up and down

Birds are also busy

Building with haste and zest

Making ready for new life

As they build their precious nest

 

 Children prepare their Easter bonnets

Decorated with chicks eggs and glue

Display them at the Easter Parade

For the delights of me and you

 

It’s a time of new beginnings

To focus on new things to do

 Be more positive in your thinking

To create a better future for you

skip

Love is…

Dancing through the daffodils

Skipping with the lambs

Love is many things

Love is…

Finding that spring in your step

When your heart is leaping

Wherever you may tread

Love is…

Feeling that burning desire

Being with the one you love

To set your emotions on fire

Love is…

That unique feeling

That unique bond

Knowing you belong

Love is…

Picnics in the park

Being together

Underneath the stars

Love is…

Emotion you may discover

Happiness or sadness

Love is a roller-coaster

Love is an experience

To cherish like no other

Potassium in diet

 

Potassium is a mineral that your body needs to work properly. It is a type of electrolyte.

Function

Potassium is a very important mineral for the human body.

Your body needs potassium to:

  • Build proteins
  • Break down and use carbohydrates
  • Build muscle
  • Maintain normal body growth
  • Control the electrical activity of the heart
  • Control the acid-base balance

Food Sources

Many foods contain potassium. All meats (red meat and chicken) and fish such as salmon, cod, flounder, and sardines are good sources of potassium. Soy products and veggie burgers are also good sources of potassium.

Vegetables including broccoli, peas, lima beans, tomatoes, potatoes (especially their skins), sweet potatoes, and winter squash are all good sources of potassium.

Fruits that contain significant amounts of potassium include citrus fruits, cantaloupe, bananas, kiwi, prunes, and apricots. Dried apricots contain more potassium than fresh apricots.

Milk, yogurt, and nuts are also excellent sources of potassium.

People with kidney problems, especially those on dialysis, should not eat too many potassium-rich foods. The doctor or nurse will recommend a special diet.

Side Effects

Having too much or too little potassium in the body can cause serious health problems.

A low blood level of potassium is called hypokalemia. It can cause weak muscles, abnormal heart rhythms, and a slight rise in blood pressure. You may have hypokalemia if you:

  • Take diuretics (water pills) to treat high blood pressure or heart failure
  • Take too many laxatives
  • Have severe or prolonged vomiting and diarrhea
  • Have certain kidney or adrenal gland disorders

Too much potassium in the blood is known as hyperkalemia. It may cause abnormal and dangerous heart rhythms. Some common causes include:

  • Poor kidney function
  • Heart medicines called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and angiotensin 2 receptor blockers (ARBs)
  • Potassium-sparing diuretics (water pills) such as spironolactone or amiloride
  • Severe infection

Recommendations

The Food and Nutrition Center of the Institute of Medicine recommends these dietary intakes for potassium, based on age:

Infants

  • 0 – 6 months: 0.4 grams a day (g/day)
  • 7 – 12 months: 0.7 g/day

Children and Adolescents

  • 1 – 3 years: 3 g/day
  • 4 – 8 years: 3.8 g/day
  • 9 – 13 years: 4.5 g/day
  • 14 – 18 years: 4.7 g/day

Adults

  • Age 19 and older: 4.7 g/day

Women who are producing breast milk need slightly higher amounts (5.1 g/day). Ask your doctor what amount is best for you.

People who are being treated for hypokalemia need potassium supplements. Your health care provider will develop a supplementation plan based on your specific needs.

Mothers Day will be upon us soon

How are we going to celebrate this event?

Shall we buy her chocolates and flowers?

Or buy her an expensive bottle of scent

 

We all take mothers for granted

Expecting she will always be there

She is always a good listener

And all your problems she will share

 

She sometimes becomes a nurse and a doctor

When you have hurt yourself at play

She will sit you upon her lap

Until the pain goes away

 

She will do these things all of your life

In sickness and in health

She will never give up on you

For a mother never thinks of her self 

 

A champion to all of the family

At times she will have her say

For a mother is the kingpin of the family

So show your appreciation on this her special day

I MEANT TO DO MY WORK TODAY

I meant to do my work today…
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree.
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand…
So what could I do but laugh and go?

~By Richard LeGallienne~

TREES

Trees are the kindest things I know,
They do no harm, they simply grow.
And spread a shade for sleepy cows,
And gather birds among their boughs.

They give us fruit in leaves above,
And wood to make our houses of,
And leaves to burn on Halloween,
And in the Spring new buds of green.

They are first when the day’s begun
To touch the beams of morning sun,
They are the last to hold the light
When evening changes into night.

And when a moon floats on the sky
They hum a drowsy lullaby,
Of sleepy children long ago…
Trees are the kindest things I know.

~By Harry Behn~

FEEDING THE BIRDS…

To me, the garden is a doorway to other worlds;
one of them, of course, is the world of birds.
The garden is their dinner table,
bursting with bugs and worms and succulent berries.
~by Anne Raver~

***

As Autumn aproaches,
it’s time to set up a feeding station
for our feathered friends,
so we can enjoy their company in our garden,
over the winter months.
In the garden, their are plenty of plants,
rich in berries, enticing birds into the garden,
but they will need a little extra,
to see them through the months to come.

***

Here are some festive ideas…

String whole peanuts
and dried fruit together to create a garland.

Scoop out some orange halves,
make three holes around the rim for hanging
and then tie with string/ribbon.
Fill with suet, nuts or birdseed.

Find some pinecones,
and coat with peanut butter or suet,
then roll in birdseed.
Hang on your bird-table,
or tree with string/ribbon.

***

A really good idea,
is too keep a container with a lid
in the kitchen,
to put
bread crumbs/stale bread/crusts/crackers/rolls in,
and biscuits/cookies/cake and cereals,
also apple cores can go in too.

What a feast they will have 🙂

GARDEN PATH

Let’s stroll along a garden path
And just enjoy the day
No thoughts of worries fill our minds
We’ll just wander on our way.

Forget about life’s problems
You’ll see that they will keep
Just walk with me a little ways
Nature’s blessings we will reap.

Let’s find some joy in little things
We’ll talk of nothing much
Just wander down the garden path
Sweet flowers we shall touch.

We’ll find a spot to sit awhile
And watch the clouds float by
We’ll listen to the song of birds
And sigh a pleasant sigh.

When at last the day is over
And home now we must go
Take the memory along with you
For the days you’re feeling low.

~by Charlotte Anselmo~

A LITTLE POEM…

The kiss of the sun for pardon.
The song of the bird for mirth.
One is nearer God’s heart in a garden
Than anywhere else on earth.

~Author Unknown~

DO NOT STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.

When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush;
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there; I did not die.

~Author Unknown~

CHINESE PROVERBS…

Keep a green tree in your heart
and perhaps a singing bird will come.
~Chinese Proverb~

That the birds of worry and care
fly over your head,
this you cannot change,
but that they build nests in your hair,
this you can prevent.
~Chinese proverb~

A bird does not sing
because it has an answer;
it sings because it has a song.
~Chinese proverb~

MY MOTHER

One crisp, bright, moisty, morning,
When Spring was on the brink,
My memories started blooming,
I couldn’t help but think.

Of a woman I called Mother,
And what she’s meant to me,
Of long time that has passed,
Just what and who was she?

Did you ever see a butterfly,
Elusive and so free,
So elegant and beautiful,
A sight for all to see?

Did you ever see a sunset,
Spectacular and bright,
But fading, oh, so quickly,
Like a spurling, whirling kite?

Did you ever see the dewdrops,
Sparkling in the sun,
Just waiting to be gently touched,
But gone before it’s done?

Did you ever see a rainstorm,
Brewing in the sky,
Slowly rumbling and a tumbling,
Before your very eyes?

I know you’ve heard a songbird,
With it’s slow caressing tune,
That comforts and that soothes you,
As a warm beeze blows at noon.

All of these are memories,
Of a timid soul, I’ve known,
Who I can now appreciate,
Since I am up and grown!

~By Phyllis Cole~

Love Poem of The Jilted Grammarian Is her went? Am she gone? Did her leave I all alone?

Oh, cruel fate To be so blind, To take she ‘way And leave I ‘hind.

Darn she! Me hate she! Me wish her were died! To them is in love, may heart forbid That they be done like I been did!

An Angry Valentine If you won’t be my Valentine I’ll scream, I’ll yell, I’ll bite. I’ll cry aloud, I’ll start to whine If you won’t be my Valentine. I’ll frown and fret, I’ll mope and pine, and It will serve you right — If you won’t be my Valentine I’ll scream, I’ll Yell, I’ll Bite! Myra Cohn Livingston

Valentines!  Valentines! Valentines! Barbara Juster Esbensen

Love is like a Cabbage My love is like a cabbage Divided into two, The leaves I give to others, The heart I give to you. Author Unknown

Veggie Valentine You may not “carrot” all for me The way I care for you. You may “turnip” your nose When I plead with you But if your “heart” should “beet” with mine Forever “lettuce” hope There is no reason in the world  Why we two “Cantaloupe.” Author Unknown

Conversation Hearts Such meek Little tokens Sugary white, Shy green, prom Yellow and pink. But spiced with Mottoes: SURE THING, OH BOY— Each one like A reckless wink. Valerie Worth

Valentine Chocolates Ordinary candy, Perhaps–but Boxed in a ruby Heart, it grows Exotic, mysterious; Not to mention The red cellophane Wrapper, which Looked through, Shows a marvelous Scarlet world. Valerie Worth

He Sent His Love a Valentine He sent his love a Valentine; His love did not reply. We never dare to care to sign These things, I wonder why. David McCord

Valentine If all the whole world’s taxicabs Came running to my call, I’d park right by your door and honk In the handsomest cab of all.

We’d drive to Spain, Maine or Spokane! Could anything be sweeter Than ticking off a million miles Upon a metal meter? X. J. Kennedy

The Kangaroo’s Courtship

“Oh will you be my wallaby?” Asked Mr. Kangaroo. “For we could find so very many Jumping things to do. I have a pocket two feet wide And deep inside,  My dear, you’d ride— Oh, come and be my bouncing bride, My Valentine, my side-by-side I am in love with you.” Jane Yolen
