Well I never knew there would be such a things as wild peace silk. Never did I think I would be unethical to purchase standard silk. My conscience is duly reprimanded.
I have always delighted in an unread book. E readers are fine, but proper pages just still have that 'something' - and are lower risk for reading in the bath, the ultimate in relaxation!
I swear by toast at any time to make me feel better. It's what I had after labour. Definitely good comfort food.
interested that 'The Martian' was mentioned; I discovered it late but I haven't read such an enthralling page turner in years. Books like that really do take you away from it all. Millions of miles away in this case!
the e-library is an absolute game changer for me, I can load up my ereader with books at any time and they never go overdue, they just disappear! When the kids are past the baby stage we'll be going to the real library, but in the meantime it is the only chance I get to borrow books.
I agree that reading can be the same as meditation in the way that it stops you thinking about things. But in the same way, escaping into a book enables you to avoid uncomfortable feelings that meditation can help you face. So I wouldn't say it's a good substitute. But good in its own right.
I love reading but have definitely found the internet has sapped my time for reading books. There's always so many things to 'check' and 'research' online. Nothing beats getting into a good book and the satisfaction of finishing something that's complete, rather than a random blog post.
oh yes, tell me about it with kids and sleep - I'm promised that you can't ever get teenagers out of bed, can't wait!!
Getting enough sleep is tricky when you've got a toddler. I just hope the negative health effects don't last long-term.
Learning new things and having new experiences is something I am definitely doing more of in my 40s. I think you just reach that age when you realise life is running away with you and you want to live it!
Sorry. But there is no way I would exercise on a hangover. Sleep, water and lazy day sorts it out.
guilty as charged - my mates and I are shockers for meeting up and then just paying attention to our phones. This is ridiculous and I'm going to show them this article. We will change!
nope, nothing down sink drains except washing up water, anything beyond a small amount of oil on the pan will clog our ancient infrastructure. If there is a lot left, wipe up with a kitchen towel or rag and bin it. Yes, landfill, but better than blocked drains.
I swear by lots of water, lots of food and lots of sleep. That said, I've not been in need of it for many years now I'm much more sensible
..and possibly laughter. Let's face it, if you are over 25 and getting in this state you are going to be a bit of a joke to all around you. sort it out but don't expect any sympathy, least not from me!
I thought you could put oil down the drain as long as it wont solidify. So olive oil etc is ok, but liquid lard would be a no no.
This caught my eye because I bought some sun protective clothing (top and shorts) on sale recently and wore it to France during the heatwave. it was worth its weight in gold as was covered well on the beach but still felt like I was on holiday without the hassle of cream!
I think that rapeseed oil also means fewer food miles, we certainly have enough fields of the stuff. And yes, NOT down the drain. My neighbour did that for a while and believe me we know what a fatberg is...
as a cynical 'no lotions except suncream' kinda gal, does this stuff actually work? I didn't think much would actually get through the skin. I've also read that too much vitamin C taken as a pill is a waste as it just goes straight out again.
I would recommend using rapeseed oil. It's really healthy and much cheaper than olive oil. Look at the vegetable oil and you will find many bottles are actually rapeseed oil!
Ha ha, love the term 'fatberg' - wouldn't like one of them!
once upon a time everyone had a deep fryer - fortunately those days have long gone. To the relief no doubt of both the medical profession and the fire service!
I have 1000mg of vitamin C daily and also use a vitamin C serum. I can honestly say my skin has never been better.
