Modius Health Headset 3 month review [ad]

For the past three months, I’ve been reviewing the Modius Health Headset. This clever little device claims to reduce cravings, decrease appetite and make you feel fuller, quicker.

Thursday photo #272

It seems ridiculous that under a week ago, the children were still at school. Since then, we’ve crammed so much in that I’m exhausted already. I’m managing to keep my head above water with work, but only just. It’s a great reminder though of how privileged I am to work from home.

The usual Rocky Horror show ingredients were all present and correct. Sci-fi, horror, comedy and music. All the classic songs brought the show to life, with a large dose of innuendo and humour thrown in. Of course, there were some wacky costumes on show too. The show Richard O’Brien’s legendary show first took to the stage back in 1973. An immediate hit, it has since been seen by millions in theatres…
