Tick season

Tick season

If you have a tick, get rid of it as soon as possible because Lyme Disease is more likely to be transferred the longer the tick is on the body. Look out for flu like symptoms and/or a red rash around the bite. It’s quite easy to get them out...

Less Furniture

Less Furniture

Get rid of some of your furniture. It may sound crazy but sitting on a chair or sofa is not the best position for the body. Observe how toddlers and kids naturally sit down, one of the most healthful positions is shown in the picture above. Working and playing with...

Fruit & Pesticides

Fruit & Pesticides

We have one kid that would eat nothing but mango all day everyday. Sadly over here we can not grow them in our garden and shop bought ones are a luxury. I do love shopping local & organic but luckily mango has a dense peel which helps to keep pesticides...

Tea & Stress

Tea & Stress

'There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea' - B. Heroux Whilst trying to find out if English breakfast tea was actually good or bad for me (no proof of either yet). I did discover that there is scientific...

Sugar

Sugar

How much sugar is ok for ourselves and for our kids? We tried to start the kids late on sugar but it was relatively easy for us with twins and they were our first. It's harder when you have already got older kids. Home baking let me keep control of...

My grandparents and parents already used leg compresses to lower a fever - it's a simple trick that got passed down and never fails to work.Fever is a good thing, it's protecting the body against infection. Just when it gets too high (40 degrees or above) it's good to lower...

Scents & Smells

Scents & Smells

I am fascinated by how smell can affect people's mood or even shopping habits or work performance. That good smells can make you happier and how even a whiff of something can straight away bring back memories. Apparently we even tend to choose our partner by smell. Since smell has...

Bath Time

Bath Time

Weekly bath sorted! We only give our kids a bath once a week in only water. It might sound a bit strange but it is actually better for their skin. We do clean the kids bottoms everyday and occasionally if they are very grubby from the sandpit etc. we give...

Lip Care

Lip Care

Why do I use eye cream on my lips? I like a natural look and a hydrating eye cream does not put a shine on the lips. So you end up with natural, smooth looking lips and just that. Also lips do not get as addicted, so I don't have...

Trampolines & Kids

Trampolines & Kids

Trampolines get a bit of bad press, we have one in the garden and every time the kids go crazy on it we have the same discussion. How good or bad is it really? No question they absolutely love it and it's good for balance, coordination, improves posture and it's...

Tablets & Water

Tablets & Water

I learned to drink a whole glass of water with any tablets I take. It's easier on the stomach and water alone does not react with the medication. Juices, coffee, alcohol, tea and milk can affect medication to the point that they stop working. The good thing is the more...

Disinfection Spray

Disinfection Spray

We have a wild child at home, which made me add a disinfection spray to the staple content of my handbag. Clean running water is completely fine for cleaning out small cuts and scrapes, but I find it's not always available. Sprays are great because you do not have to...
