Just before L broke up for the Easter Holidays he trotted home telling me that you could actually eat Nettles! He was amazed. How do they not sting you? What do they taste like? Why would you want to? The timing was rather apt as I had just received my samples of Emunity, a detox health drink that contains Nettle for its healing and immunity-boosting benefits.Continue reading Emunity Detox Soft Drink Review
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.Continue reading Canal Anti-Bacterial Slime
Omega-3 helps keep our hearts, brains and vision healthy, great! But how do we make sure we’re getting enough of it? What even is enough of it? Do we just have to eat all the fish? What if you don’t like fish? Or you need to eat so much of it you run out of time to eat other things? Helpfully Bioglan are here to help in a practical way.Continue reading Taking the Bioglan Omega-3 Challenge
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.Continue reading Healthier Snacks Post Christmas
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.Continue reading Helping Back to School Stress with Zenflore
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

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.Continue reading Real Good Ketchup
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…Continue reading ‘Tis the season to be sneezing (and wheezing?)
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.Continue reading Defensil Rescue Serum
