We know that as the sun comes out we all crawl off the sofa and outdoors for some much needed vitamin D. With this comes family adventures through the forest or runs on the beach, but with all this fun often comes cuts and scrapes.
This summer L has ditched the stabilisers so we’re literally just waiting for the first tumble and grazed elbows and knees. Plus we are literally living in a building site at the moment!Continue reading Summer Healing with Elastoplast
Hello and welcome summer. Last weekend was the hottest day of the year so far, with temperatures soaring to a blissful 28 degrees in some areas. As residents of this fair isle, it’s tradition to celebrate the coming of the sun by stripping down to as few clothes as possible and plonking ourselves down in the nearest patch of greenery with the family; a guaranteed lovely day out for children and adults alike…or is it?

I have got to be kinder to myself, I have got to be easier on myself, I have got to look after myself.

I was fully aware she would be inundated with cute clothes and toys for the new baby, which are super lovely, but I wanted to get her things that would make her life easier! So when Kegel8 got in touch to tell me about their Mother Nurture Electronic Pelvic Toner and Labour TENS Machine I knew it was just what I was after.Continue reading Kegel8 Mother Nurture
I’d tried so hard not to get ill in the run up to Christmas, it was no shock that as soon as the celebrations were over I got a cold and a sinus infection. The trouble is I still can’t afford to be ill. I was working solo to cover New Year, then it was my birthday and now the kid is back at school, I cannot take time off.
So it was back to the vitamins. This time I tried something new. Sambucol Immuno Forte. Sambucol is great for helping boost the immune system and recover from a cold, but also to help you stop getting one in the first place.Continue reading Sambucol Immuno Forte

The kids at school have been dropping like flies. Of the 16 children in L’s class only 8 were lined up to go in to the class last Monday morning. I’ll be honest, this filled with me with fear, it’s seems to be more when will he get ill, not if.Continue reading Surviving Winter With BioCare
