Coronavirus – changing our plans for Easter

Coronavirus – changing our plans for Easter

Well, I am sure we are not the only family to be affected by the news this week: non essential travel is banned for 30 days and the kids are off school (with no end date) due to the Coronavirus. It's such a daunting time. In less than 2 weeks, we had planned to go to Dubai to visit friends. It's crazy to think how this has all transformed in such a short space of time. I know it's important and I understand why, don't get me wrong, but what a shock for the system! With that in mind, I am planning on covering a lot of ideas and resources over the next week to help other families in a similar situation. VIEW the POST

Dealing with Chicken Pox abroad as a family #ChickenPox

We’ve had our fair share of illnesses this school term. It started with the good ole sickness bug and has just ended with both children having their turn with Chicken Pox. Both completely immobilising for quite different reasons. Before Noah had chicken pox I had absolutely no idea that you are prevented from flying.

This post includes some great tips on how to spot food intolerance with migraines, tummy pains and tiredness and how any ingering health issues could potentially be solved with just a simple change to your diet.

You can’t be poorly as a parent!

Obviously you can be, but I think any parent will know what I mean with my title. Yes the past six days have been a challenge for me and for Daddy too, and for Nanny for that matter. It really is impossible to do "doc's" orders and rest up.  VIEW the POST

How children can enjoy Winter – thanks to Biocare

For every parent, the first major challenge is getting children back to school after the long summer break, with all that freedom and opportunities for extra time in bed, something I have to look forward to! Easily the second challenge is keeping them there all term without the disruption of sick days. Notoriously, children spread bugs like wildfire and when they arrive en masse in September, coinciding with the inevitable change in the weather, that’s when the fun begins. However, top professional supplement specialist BioCare® has other ideas…
