A long time ago I bought the book Beating Chronic Fatigue. The poor book has been dragged everywhere, up to bed (and then I would fall asleep) back downstairs then I was too busy to open it. I have though finally had the chance to start reading through it.
It was first published in 2010 so it’s relatively newcomer on the book shelves offering suffers a glimmer of hope. The thing that drew me to it (and to buy it) is that it’s written Dr Kristina Downing-Orr and suffered from chronic fatigue. Also the way it is written it’s easy to understand, she doesn’t bombard you with facts and figures and long words that leave you searching for a dictionary every other word. Continue reading
Living in Cornwall has its perks. You’re only ever 20 minutes from a beach. There is countryside, lots of it and the ace of life is slow. So slow they call it dreckly. Everything in Cornish life is done dreckly. But there are downsides. Hills, holiday makers and narrow lanes. Not a good combination really. Oh and we have a fair bit of Cornish sunshine, which to everyone else is rain. Continue reading

When I was offered Persil’s Small and Mighty to try out I was a little dubious. Having only used non-smelly washing tablets was I about to inflict days of inching on the kids and I?

Only one way to find out. Continue reading

I had heard about eco shoes before and must admit I was expecting something rather flimsy and newpaper-ish to arrive in a shoe box. So to un-wrap the tissue and find eco-certified suede shoes was a bit of a surprise. Continue reading
I had my bingo wings at the ready, bingo lingo all lined up and my dabber all filled up. Online bingo off I went. The modern world has evolved and I my trusty dabber wasn’t needed as it is all automated. Bingo lingo can still be used but I didn’t feel a bit of a prat talking to the computer screen. And we won’t talk about my bingo wings. Continue reading
When Netmums asked me if I would like a read of a book about Tweens, my first reaction was why on earth would I want to read about Bella, Fizz, Jake and Milo. Even sadder is the fact that I can still remember the name of the characters. Apparently, though, Tween is the name for those years between cute, sweet smelling young age and the huffing, puffing flouncing of a teenager. I have one of those huffy puffy’s who can flounce at the drop of a hat and conversation is made up words with one syllable. My other child is though a fully fledged tween. Continue reading
