I sometimes reply to comments with this little heart emoji 💖.
But I just want to explain what it means as after I commented on something yesterday I got the response "really? Got nothing constructive to actually say?!?!".
Not going to say where, or who it was, (it wasn't on the Pumpkins in trees FB page or anything) :) I just wanted to say that this little heart says many things.... it says...
"I dont know what to say, what you have written is so heartfelt and sad"
I keep forgetting to update you on the Anxiety front. After the last 2 blogs about my anxiety I received some great messages of support and a phone call from a very panicked mother a few weeks ago who finally started to read some of my blogs... (I may have neglected to tell her about getting some medication). But I just want everyone to know that I am doing fine. I have had one pill a week or so ago, which I actually took because my back was having a bit of a spasm and causin
During our lengthy battle with Scarlett's eczema we tried so many creams, doctors were next to useless and I had googled "eczema cure" about 2,456 times. Some advice was weird, others made sense, but almost always it was advice about what you should but in the bath and then what to put on the skin after a bath.

In New Zealand at the moment our prime minister wants nothing to do with updating the crime act that is abortion. It is the only medical procedure in the crimes act!

I wrote the blog 'natural items for your emergency kit' a while ago and it had among other items baking soda, vinegar and orange oil. Orange oil has amazing antibacterial and antiseptic uses, vinegar is a natural cleaner, and baking soda is a fantastic deodorizer and multipurpose disinfectant! But Vodka? Yup.

Every aspect of playing with play dough is enjoyable for children. It is a tactile experience where children can explore the sensory qualities… They can squish, mold, roll it flat, create shapes, press objects inside it, smell it and create different colour combinations.

Easy adult and kid friendly lip balm made with beetroot and items from the supermarket. The blog I wrote a while back titled "Cochineal, E120, carmine... "The little red food colouring bug and allergies" was written after my daughter had a reaction to my lip gloss when I kissed her. Unknowingly it contained cochineal beetle (that she is allergic to), so I decided I would try and make my own so there would be no more buggy kisses from mummy :) Mmmmwwwwaaaaahh! I made this wit
