A MUM has divided opinion after revealing she is “proud” her son punched the “class bully”. Laura Mazza, 33, from Melbourne, said son Luca, six, told her he had to do something to stop the classmate from bullying him. Laura is mum to Luca, six, Sofia, four, and two-year-old James, and regularly shares the reality of parenting on her Instagram . In a post, she wrote: “My son punched another kid today. “He told me that another boy was picking on him, and when he told him to stop, he pushed him off the playground, then ran away. “And I asked him, ‘okay, so what did you do?’ “He said ‘I chased him and punched him in the face so he knows never to bully me again. I knew the teacher wouldn’t do anything so I had to stop him from bullying me.’” The mum said she “thanked him for being honest and talked about different ways of handling it without violence.” Laura added: “But was I proud? Yeah a little bit. I know violence isn’t the answer but I also know that when … [Read more...] about Mum says she’s PROUD her son punched ‘class bully’ – but other parents aren’t convinced
A SAVVY couple managed to double the value of their house with a smart renovation - and it’s now worth £2 million. Mum Tracey Gill and her husband bought the house in a small village near East Sussex in 2016, and have been transforming it ever since. Tracey says her husband gave her a fairly wide brief when house-hunting, explaining he said: “Find a house ripe for transformation in the prettiest location. I knew I could change any house we bought so the important factor was the land and location.” The house, which they bought for £1.25million, dates back to 1730 in places and had low ceilings - not great for Tracey's 6ft4ins husband. Describing the state they bought it in, the mum-of-two said: “It was covered in cream pebble dash with concrete roof tiles, a north facing conservatory on the front of the house, modern leaded light windows, low ceilings, dark rooms, artexed walls, cheap fittings, decades old carpets, pink shag pile in the bathroom and an unimaginative … [Read more...] about Couple double the value of their house with stunning renovation and it’s now worth £2million
A baby's first Christmas is always extra special, so it's not surprising that the Queen wanted to get Archie the perfect present. So the Monarch got in touch with her grandson, Prince Harry , to ask what the royal tot would like - and Meghan Markle had the perfect idea. But the gift, which the Queen ordered and had sent to the Sussexes' home in LA, left James Corden completely baffled when Harry told him the story during an interview for The Late Late Show. As the duo took an open top bus tour of the city , James asked Harry about fatherhood, his new life America and quitting the royal family. Speaking about the Queen's gift, he said: "My grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas, and Meg said a waffle maker. "So she sent us a waffle maker for Archie, so breakfast now Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix, in the waffle maker, flip it, out it comes. "He loves it. And now I have waffles for breakfast, bit of yogurt, bit of jam on top. I don't know if … [Read more...] about Queen’s Christmas present to Archie stuns James Corden – and tot uses it every day

Welcome to HMS Bubble, where the pandemic meant the Queen and Prince Philip were forced to live under the same roof, with just a handful of chefs, footmen, maids, housekeepers, clock-winders and 24-hour police security for company. The staff were bubbled, kept apart from their families, and regularly tested for coronavirus, as Her Majesty took part in Zoom calls someone else had set up for her, did her paperwork at the same desk she's sat at for 69 years, and was able to keep Boris Johnson at arm's length with a weekly phone call. Leave this working-from-castle luxury behind, now, and step into the home of a teacher, 35 and a little overweight, as she tries to teach 30 children in a Google hangout using a broadband system dependent on 100-year-old telephone lines. Consider the extra hours she has worked unpaid, the vulnerable pupils whose problems have kept her awake at night, and fears for her own health as the government orders her back to school with perhaps 300 walking … [Read more...] about Why vaccinate the Queen but deny a priority jab to teachers and police officers?
