Post of The Month

One-in-a-million is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Just a bit of fun here if you could create an advent calendar what would you put in it and why.

For me you would still get chocolate 😆😆
But inside each door is a task for the day. Something that includes you helping/talking to others, doing something festive and spreading Christmas cheer
For example

1. Tell your parents/carers you love them
2. Say hello when passing an OAP (that might be the only thing someone says to them all week)
3. Watch a Christmas movie
4. Help someone in need e.g put some spare change in a charity box, buy a warm drink for the homeless person who sits on the corner, dothe washing up ha ha ha😂
5 make hot chocolate
6. Visit your grandparents (if you donít already) They will more than likely love to see you.
7. Sing a Christmas song with a friend
8. Dress up in something Christmasy when you do your shopping.

You get the idea 😂😉 my reason for this is to get people in the mood and understand what Christmas actually means.

What would yours have and why."

  • Unclear on law and police officer

    So i reported an incident about two weeks ago now. but i didn't make a statement. I have emailed the police officer on my case. And its been a week and he hasn't replied. I am very anxious to get the crime report etc over asap . I know my incident is nothing major so it would take time but im not sure how long to wait.

    I also have spoken to the police man that i have been assigned, before and he is scary, and i feel that he intimidates me. I have googled and i can't find out my rights on if i can ask for a different officer.

    any advice or tips on this / taking my mind off this would be brilliant
    many thanks

        Hey Turtle,

        Just wondering if you've had any progress with this? How're you feeling?

        Also, the Citizens' Advice Bureau can offer free legal advice and information if you need it.
        Taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself.

          I spoke to the police officer i am gonna make a statement in a few days. I didnt have the courage to ask if i could talk to another person. But my friend's going to come with me :D so hopefully it will be ok.
          Thanks ! i will have a look.
          have a nice week

            Hi turtle, as with anything if your unsure and feel like you could explain your situation better to another officer i cant see why that would be a problem.Always best to take someone else with you aswell hope it all goes well for you iam sure it will
            If its not broken take it to pieces so you know how it works for when it does

              Hi thanks for replying.
              I am not to sure right now where things are at or if i want them to continue. the law always seem to be so hard on people when bad things happen.
