Guest Post: Enjoying (and Surviving) Orlando, Florida

As I am off on my holiday to Florida, I wanted to be able to provide relevant content for you as my readers. Trouble is, I have never been before!

Using Mindfulness To Achieve Some Zen After School

If you have followed me for a while now, you will know that Jake started school last September and that the transition has been somewhat difficult for both of us. The daily school runs, the intensity of school work, the extra intensity of homework, the tiredness, the endless stuff coming through on parentmail… Urgh, it’s been overwhelming.

This is one of those questions I am asked very often; Does Amber Jewellery actually work for teething? And I can only be honest.
