Following on from my post about my love for real nappies, I thought I’d write another couple of posts about the environment and my concerns about the impact that we have on it. The first of these links in with Ecover’s Message in Our Bottle campaign. This is really starting to take off now, I have read a few blogs about it and it’s such a great campaign that everybody is getting right behind them.  Ecover have pledged to clean up our planet one bottle at a time. These days, it’s not just about throwing your plastic bottle into the recycling…

This week is real nappy week. I have toyed with the idea of blogging about it, but I was worried that my post was going to come across as biased. Sadly, I don’t think there is much I can do about that, because I am. I am, in fact, a convert. I am a fan, a lover and even, I might say, an addict.  The Real Nappy – My Story   Before Libby was born, I read a bit about real nappies because using disposable nappies just didn’t sit comfortably with me. I was worried about the cost, friends told me…

My late twenties to early thirties were a time for travelling the world and now, rapidly approaching…

So spring is finally here! Yesterday Libby and I were determined to make the most of a glimpse of the sunshine. First we took the dogs for a walk around the fields. This is the first time I’ve taken Libby out without about 11 layers on since she was a few weeks old. She was delighted to be able to point to things that she saw on the walk without the restriction of her mittens! Next, we went to our local pool for a swim. She has recently learned to launch herself into the swimming pool and took great pride…

I love blogging. I started to love it even more when I learnt that I’d been selected to write a blog post about the Boots Feel Good Forum health and beauty radio shows. Excitingly, the first show was about anti-aging and the second was about hair care and skin care. These are all things that I would love to have the time to pay a bit more attention to, so I would have enjoyed listening to the shows anyway.
