Orchid - Fighting Male Cancer

For their awareness month, male cancer charity Orchid wants all men to check themselves for the signs of testicular cancer as part of their #CheckYourChaps campaign. The charity have just completed surveying the British public, revealing that on average only 32% of men are regularly checking themselves. Young men are even less likely to check themselves (only 1 in 4 do!) which is worrying as testicular cancer most commonly affects those aged between 15 and 45.

As a mum I tend to forget about looking after myself properly and pamper time is usually the bare minimum which consists of a quick shower and hair being tied back.  I also now know how my mum felt running around after me and my sister and feeling tired most of the time.

Get the World Ready

February 5th 2010 and April 20th 2012, the dates my two precious children were born. I still remember the intense, overwhelming rush of love the moment they were place in my arms. It was incredible. I also remember, before going in to have them, the cleaning spree we went on to ensure everything was clean and good to go them coming home.

A Craft Afternoon

With the weather being rather nasty at the moment between torrential rain and gale force winds it can be hard to keep the kids amused,  Days like that are a great opportunity to get out the arts and craft kits and have some fun.
