Post of The Month (August)

Meggles is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"my recent post and a comment from another user has made me realise that self care is so important.

I wanted to start a thread in the Health and Wellbeing section of the boards about self care.

Self care is provided by you, for you

I know a lot of us are struggling at the moment with different aspects of our own lives, and sometimes we get so lost in these we forget to take time for ourselves. This tread is, a Reminder to you to take time out for yourself during the difficult times.

down in the comments I would really love for people to share ideas and tips about self- care. to remind ourselves and others in the community.

My way of self care when i recognise ( or someone recognises i have neglected myself) is:

Take a walk and admire whats around me ( take as long as needed)
treat myself to a bath with a bathbomb and bubbles ( bubbles are important)
make a hot drink and just sit down with a film.

Please feel free to share your ideas!

The Mix have a guide to self-care which you can find here."

  • Lost my certificates

    I'm really stressing guys, I've save all my certificates from school and college and kept them all together. But I can't find 2 of the most important ones. My English and Maths GCSEs. I failed them at school, had to re-do them at college. Tried my hardest and studied hard to pass them. Stressed that I wouldn't pass and then passed :D

    As you can see they mean a lot to my and I can't find them anywhere I am absolutely gutted I've completely trashed my room to look for them (currently tidying my room again now)

    I can't believe I've lost them it was the final piece to my puzzle (childcare) and without sounding snobby, I was so proud to actually receive them :/.

    I don't even know how I've managed to lose them. I've looked at getting a replacement but they don't actually give you a full certificate replacement just a document yo say you have passed. Which is not the same.
    As GCSE maths and English are required there is a good chance I would be asked to provide these which I can't now.

    Has anyone lost their certificate and had to get a replacement?

    Sorry to hear you lost them.
    I don't know much about replacement but can you remember the exam board you took your exams with and maybe try their websites to find information about replacement?

      Agreed, you could try the exam board's website and see what it says about what to do if they get lost. I can imagine lots of people are (or have been) in your position.

        Hey Emma, I'm sorry to hear you lost your certificates. I found some information on the Government website about who to contact about getting a replacement exam certificate that might be helpful. On the website it says:

        Contact an exam board to get a replacement exam certificate or certified statement of results.

        You can’t get a replacement certificate for an O level, CSE, GCSE or A level - your exam board will send you a ‘certified statement of results’ instead. You can use this in place of your exam certificate, for example for a university application.

        Boards may give you a replacement certificate for other qualifications they offer.
        Although it says you can't get a replacement certificate, the statement of results that they send you can be used instead of your exam certificates. Do you need to provide the certificates for your childcare?
