Supporting Elderly Relatives - 7 ways we can help?

Leave a Comment
**Post in Collaboration with Fenetic Wellbeing**

Since visiting my Grandma recently and sharing a post about her which you can read here I have been thinking lots about how we can help elderly relatives. I guess a lot of this would also apply to friends and neighbours who are elderly too or maybe who struggle due to disabilities.

Penclic R3 Wireless Mouse Review

Leave a Comment
When I was approached to review the Penclic R3 Mouse I was very intrigued because on one hand it does look a little dull to be reviewing a mouse, but this mouse is different and fun looking so I wanted to see if it was really worth its £59.99 price tag or just an over priced gadget!

Money saving and eating healthily on a budget

11 comments
So, its that time of year where everyone is watching their pennies! Maybe you overspent on your holidays, you are saving for Christmas or next years holiday, you're trying to get your finances in order, or you have a sudden cost you didn't envisage such as problems with your car or a speeding fine! Whatever it is the chances are that as you are reading this, like me, you are thinking that you need to spend at little as you can on food whilst still eating healthily! It is easy to use the excuse of cost to mean you eat rubbish foods, I have done it many times over the years but the reality is that with the right foods and meal plans you can stick to a healthy eating plan like Slimming World and eat well on a budget!

Back to School - Helping your children with school work

Leave a Comment
***This is a Sponsored Post***

It is almost September so all across the country parents like me are rejoicing at the idea of being able to clean a room and then an hour later it is still clean! The fridge will stay full and the routine will be back to normal! This does however bring the battles of homework, do they do it straight after school or at the last minute before it needs handing in? The reality is at some point every parent is likely to have this battle! There is something that may help you though.

101 things to do to avoid comfort or boredom eating

6 comments
I am often stuck comfort eating or boredom eating and I know I am not alone in this. Having lost over 10 stone many people ask me how I managed to avoid comfort or boredom eating so I do hope this helps someone. It is easy though isn't it to get caught up in emotions and eat to make us feel better, or we're sitting watching TV and need something to do with our hands.

I have compiled a list of lots of alternatives to help myself and others when you want to avoid eating but you just need that bit of inspiration! Some of these have helped me and others I have heard mentioned by others so I am sure there will be something for everyone! Feel free to add any ideas of your own in the comments and bookmark or Pin this page for anytime you need it.

My weight loss story will never end, an honest update

13 comments
I know many of my followers and readers found my blog due to my amazing weight loss of over 10 stone. I still cant believe I did that, I lost over 10 stone in 15 months with 8 stone of that in 37 weeks, and I kept it off for over a year. Of course in that year I had ups and downs but I was never more than around half a stone away from my target weight. This year though things have changed and I have struggled so I want to be honest and share this with you and hope you understand and continue to follow my journey that will never end.

Guest Post - Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe

1 comment
This Spaghetti Bolognese recipe is from the lovely Kelly-Anne who blogs over at http://www.mimiroseandme.com/.

I don't now about you, but there really is nothing that beats a homemade bolognese when you are seeking some form of comfort food. The simple and easy to follow bolognese recipe will soon become a favourite that you can cook over and over again. It's a favourite in our household. This thick, rich sauce has become the staple for our Italian inspired recipe and what makes this even better is that it is low in calories and slimming world friendly -  a healthier shortcut to real Italian taste.
