There’s often a difficult balance between a healthy body and a healthy mind. Social media tells us to live a little, treat ourselves every now and again. Drink the wine, eat the cake. Then we read about the obesity epidemic. The health complications caused by a high calorie diet and the need to watch what we eat and limit our alcohol consumption. The only solutions are compromise and balance. Smaller portions, drinking less frequently and finding a lighter, low alcohol alternative to a glass of wine. Black Tower low alcohol wines and low alcohol sparkling wine have just 129 calories…

Win a fleece lined coat and trousers for a child from Wet Wednesdays

This time of year is always a bit depressing. The urge to stay inside to escape this grey, wet weather is almost overwhelming. But it’s so important to wrap up warm and get out there anyway. There’s nothing like a brisk walk in the cold air to blow away the cobwebs. And there’s nothing like moaning children to ruin it. Introducing Wet Wednesdays A few months ago, Wet Wednesdays kindly sent us some wet weather gear for the girls. Theoretically, we shouldn’t have got much use out of it for a few months.
