Looking After Your Children’s Teeth

Post in collaboration with The Centre for Advanced Dentistry Yorkshire Getting your kids to brush their teeth can be a real chore, but looking after your children’s teeth is very important.

An Impromptu Break

It’s been two weeks since I last published a blog post. In fact, it’s been two weeks since I have even opened my lap top. I didn’t mean to take a break.

It’s a big airshow which takes place every year. For those travelling in to the town, there is all sorts going on. Activities, stalls, displays and general fun things. Unfortunately for us, things like that are way to busy. My husband and son who are both on the autism spectrum just couldn’t handle the crowds. So Instead of heading down to the festival, we decided to take a picnic to Dundrum Castle, which is about 5 miles away. Dundrum castle sits atop […]

You just can’t beat a BBQ in the summer time. You know when it’s a warm day and you step outside, and the smell of smoke hangs in the air? That is the smell of summer for me. You can’t help but crave a bbq when you smell that! I had one of those moment a couple of week ago, and I’ve been craving a bbq ever since. When Tesco Northern Ireland got in touch to see if we’d like to have our own family barbecue, we were delighted! Here is what Tesco NI had to say: Tesco Northern Ireland […]
