Controlling My Medication With My PlanSmart Medication Chart

Since I had a stroke a couple of months ago there have been changes that I have had to make to lots of aspects of my life and lifestyle. Changes that I didn’t think I was going to be making, but if I want to keep going a bit longer and watch all of my children grow up and settle in their lives, it simply was a no-brainer.

Strangely one of the feelings I felt at the time was one of guilt that we had been not only been fortunate to get pregnant, but getting pregnant… [Read More]

My Sunday Photo this week is two photos from our recent trip to Disneyland Paris. We had a fantastic time for seven days and we arrived on the same day that the Marvel Superheroes of summer season started. There was without doubt so many highlights, but without question the one person that made the biggest impression for my six year old twin girls was the one and only Captain America. They absolutely loved him and this was our second meet and greet with him which also included meeting Thor, although he didn’t get a look in with the girls as… [Read More]

Do Dads Really Care About Father’s Day: Absolutely!

How often have you heard people say I have got to buy a present for my dad, but I have absolutely no idea what to get him, or, my dad is impossible to buy presents for etc. I have to imagine my own children have said this numerous times.
