Canal Anti-Bacterial Slime

With the kids back at school I’m thinking more and more about handwashing and antibacterial hand gel again. Its been ok whilst he’s been home because I’m there to monitor everything and have plenty of moisturiser. I can’t be there all the time though. We’ve recently been using the Anti-Bacterial Slime from Canal Toys and it’s been fun.

Work Style with Trendhim

The time has come to start thinking about my husband’s return to the office. It’s weird writing this, it feels like a back to school thing but the kid has been in and out of school like a yo-yo, whereas my husband has been into his office three or four times in the last 12 months. He’s now starting to get prepared for a more permanent switch back to the office in the next few months and it feels like we really need to get prepared for it. Thankfully Trendhim have been here to help.

Mindful Minis – Mindful Month

I am a big fan of mindfulness, I meditate and enjoy yoga when I can. After spending the vast majority of my adult life, if not all of my adult life struggling with my mental health I can safely say finding mindfulness was a turning point for me.

Journalling, meditating and just being more aware helped change me as a person. I became more aware of what was good in my life, what made me happy and what I needed to be more level. It helped me notice sooner when I was falling under and it helped me pull my way back up.

How do I know my cat really loves me?

National Love your Pet Day has come round again – it’s today for those of you who didn’t know! – and there’s one question on the tip of everyone’s tongue… what on earth can I get my cat and how do I know if they even care? 

They can be the surliest of lovers, cats. They don’t seem to like being picked up, nor do they come when you call. They don’t seem to show affection, not like dogs do anyway and yet the bond between cats and humans has been going for centuries.
