Protection from Hedrin

Since being back at school in September my little one has come home with 3 or 4 letters in regards to the dreaded head lice going around, which i have been lucky to avoid so far, but to make things easier a great new product from Hedrin called Hedrin Protect and Go.

As far as head lice treatments go Hedrin are number one in the UK, with a range of lice treatments on offer. Hedrin Protect and Go has been clinically proven as a head lice protection and also a conditioning spray, it is gentle enough to be used on small children from 6 months as well as being used daily on wet or dry hair with no need to wash out.



I was pleasantly surprised by the fragrance it wasn’t an unpleasant strong smell that you get with many other Lice treatments but was in fact very pleasant and fruity scent comprising of orange and mango.


This product is available from most chemists and priced very well especially as you can use it daily. It costs approximately £4.30 for a 120ml bottle prices may vary.

Also available on the Hedrin website is info on treating and preventing lice which can be found here.


Less waffle at the table with McCain.


A good business comes from good ethics which is the philosophy of the McCain brothers the founders of the famous McCain brand. They carry this theory through all aspects of their life from their products, the customers and the farmers they work with. As well as taking care of the business they are also out there with the community and environment.

The McCain family values include a positive can do attitude, strive for excellence in all they do, work hard everyday to ensure smiles on the faces of their customers and consumers but to top it off they take pride in being a family business.


Just before Christmas i was sent a couple of packets of McCain Waffles. I am not normally a fan of things like waffles but these were really nice. The kids and I ate them regularly for the duration of the packets (2 x pkt of 8). They were full of potato not hollow like some products of a similar kind.

They are so quick to cook and go with all sorts, beans, spaghetti, fried egg, on their own with lashings of butter or even as a part of a Sunday fry up, which was a favourite of ours. I will definitely be purchasing these in the future

waffles McCain are available from all leading supermarkets eg Tesco, Check out the range of products McCain have to offer here.

I received a bunch called Joyful Wishes from their Christmas Collection and they were absolutely stunning, this bouquet consists of a red Germini surrounded by deep red single and spray Carnations, long lasting Anastasia, Santini and Euro Chrysanthemums and Pittosporum leaf greenery and to add to the festiveness 3 gold baubles were included. There were lots f red and green colours and the gold made them very Christmassy you also get care instructions and food for the flowers to put in the the vase before the flowers.


I would recommend Bunches to anyone they have a fantastic range and very reasonably priced and well packaged too.

Boost Morale

A few years ago when my marriage ended i wanted to do something to take my mind off things, as i was alone in a country with no family(i had some good friends but as with everyone they had their own things going on too). So i signed up for adopt a US soldier…you have to register on the site to which your details have to be verified and then you get info on your given soldier which takes about 2-3 days. After a couple of days i received my soldiers details i wrote but didn’t get a reply so it was kind of a none starter which at that time looking back was probably a good thing in long run as i had a lot of changes and stuff happening.

Anyway recently a friend of mine said she wanted to write to someone in the forces so i told her about the adopt a US soldier and she now has her soldier to converse/correspond with, which prompted me to try again which i have done and upon checking my email this morning i have details of my soldier and have sent my first email.

I think this kind of thing is a great idea for all the guys a girls out there who spend alot of time away from their families and loved ones especially at this time of year.

If you are interested in doing the same check out their website here.

You will find Bakerdays situated on the outskirts of The Sherwood Forest, which was founded by Andrea Guzyova and Alan Hawkes who is a greetings card entrepreneur.

One of the sizes is a letterbox cake which is a really cute wee cake (for 1 or 2 persons) that does fit through your letterbox, these are great for as a wee gift for someone especially with the gorgeous new Christmas designs.

I was sent a Christmas letterbox cake to which i had to choose the design which was really hard as they have some really cute designs, i chose a the fluffy penguins design,



although if i had may way i would have chose one of each of the gorgeous designs, the cake flavour i received was a fruit cake which i wasn’t sure if i would like but to be honest i really enjoyed it as it was not too rich like some fruit cakes you can buy,

The cake was well packages arrived in a box with a little gift card Christmas hat, Christmas cracker and of course the cake itself in a lovely tin which can be used to for something else once the cake is all finished.
