Well that’s it, we are solidly into 2020 and all the excesses of Christmas and New Year have me feeling like I might actually now be more cheese than human, with chocolate flowing through my veins and a good dose of mince pie in there somewhere too.
I’m not going on some massive health kick now it’s January, I just genuinely find myself craving something a little lighter, a bit more savoury and generally healthier when I find myself reaching for the snacks.

Child or adult the back to school season is stressful. There is a lot to get organised and a lot of change. You would have thought L starting reception last year and having gone through a year of school I would be ready for Year 1 but I am just not.

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!

I’m hoping I’m not the only parent to have found that adding Ketchup to seemingly any meal makes it so down far more easily!
I’m fully aware it’s not always the best choice though. I try hard to think about what I’m feeding L and keep it healthy as well as fun but it’s not always that easy.

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? Sadly, for more than just a few, a day out in nature in early summer can, in truth, be a nightmare of sneezing, runny noses and itchy eyes…

I know compared to a lot of places the cold weather we have been having recently is nothing to chat about, but school runs in sub zero temperatures are not the norm in the UK. Add in the wind and rain, more poor skin has taken a beating. So I was eager to try Defensil Rescue Serum when they contacted me.

When I found out my sister was pregnant I was keen to help her out with as many useful things as possible. 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.

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.
