Today was a typical Sunday we had nothing much planned.
I popped down to the Maplins with hubby and daughter as he wanted a microphone for his dictophone, that was easy. I am looking for a table top microphone for recording workshops etc but couldnt see what I wanted at Maplins.
Next we all went to the Skiff at Dunston for lunch. It is a nice family run pub but the lunch today was a bit disappointing, my potatoes were scorching hot but the beef and yorkshire pud were cold. The pub itself is nice and gets really busy, for me it lacks oomph. When I go to family run establishments I like to have a friendly welcome, smiles, a brief exchange of words. The staff are swift to bring out the food and take away plates but the experience just lacked the personal touch that I like.
From there we visited my hubbies folks and picked up his and our daughters birthday presents, as usual that family had been very generous to Georgina. She came back with loads of clothes, bling, hair slides and other girly things. After leaving Marks family we went to my parents and picked up Marks birthday card and cash gift.
Tonight was spent relaxing and we watched the X Factor together. I’m not sure that Cheryl Cole is seen as a god in Newcastle as was suggested tonight, and her song wasnt for me as I like more catchy numbers. Maybe a few more listens will do it.
Scottish singer Rikki Loney became the second contestant to be voted off in this series of the X Factor. Its a shame because I though he was really good and deserved to stay. Rachel Adedeji survived the judges’ vote after being left in the bottom two for the second week in a row. Both acts were great in the sing off but personally I dont think either would go on to win. The twins John and Edward Grimes stay for another week amid boos from the crowd, shame that talent leaves and they stay but that is the name of the game. If fans dont vote for you, and go for someone else then you may well be out the show before your time. It was a difficult one tonight as Louis was still away following the death and funeral of Stephen Gately. What if Louis had voted in favour of Rikki Loney? Perhaps the public vote would have kept him in another week! Who knows!!
Were you thinking about creating a membership site? If not you really could be leaving money on the table.
If so, you may want to take a look at this: Wishlist
It’s a solution built for “everyday people” – that means you don’t need to be a technical genius to figure it out.
Plus, if you use WordPress, you’ll be excited to know that Wishlist was built specifically for WordPress 🙂
It has all the bells and whistles you would expect but they’ve also got a number of other VERY cool features.
These videos will show you exactly what I mean:

P.S Installation is SUPER easy. It’s just like uploading a regular WordPress plugin 🙂
The definition of stress can mean different things to different people.
Many people have different feelings about it and have many causes for it as well. It can be hard to pin point just exactly what stress is, but stress is something that can affect the body and the mind of just about anyone.
Stress is usually considered the buildup of anxiety and pressures on any given person. There is only so much pressure that one person can handle and stress will occur when the person has had their fill of it. Stress itself is not necessarily a dangerous thing. A problem may arise when the person who is under a great deal of stress can no longer function, for example in day to day activities, and is letting it get on top of them.
Many people experience stress due to the job or career path they follow. Some people bring their worries and troubles in the workforce home with them, which will cause them to have a build up of too much stress in their life. This can mean that they are having a hard time dealing with pressures and may start to have mood swings or be depressed a lot
Some stress about work when at home and vice versa, and this may cause them to struggle more in day to day things as their focus is elsewhere.
Some people have too much stress at home. It may be because of a dysfunctional relationship with a partner or child. This can cause a person to loose sight of what they are doing and they may have too much to deal with at one time. This can be a reason for a person to have some difficulties dealing with their stress because they are not sure how to fix a problem.
It is very normal for people to have some form of stress on their mind. It is something that we all have had to deal with and we eventually get through it. However, there are some that cannot work past it and this will lead to more problems that can become very serious for them later down the road. This will include their emotional and their physical health.
When a person has too much stress, they must find help from a source that they can trust. It is important to get things under control so that the person will have a chance for a happy and healthy lifestyle. There are ways to control stress and deter your body from it. All you have to do is recognize when you are under too much stress and that you need to get help for it.
