My moment of preparing for Open Mic at Regents last Friday was emotional for me as I planned a small piece on family. I was realising how inactive I was and I will be honest with you a wakeup call to realising how unappreciative I can be of my mother and my late father. On the day of Open Mic I was practising to my friends, afterwards we sat down and devised ways that we could help them out. Here are some tips they provided which serve as a beneficial reminder, perhaps we could try out one or two tips and see where it leads us. Hope it helps.
*Tidy the house, putting away any mess before you leave for University. You could add in an extra fifteen minutes to your morning schedule.
*Make parents tea, give them small gifts and surprises every so often to show a token of appreciation.
*If you see something that needs to be done just do it. For example, laundrette is piling up, or there’s a dish overload in the sink then get rid of it.
*Once a week vacuum the house
*Eat and cook dinner together with the family.
