If you know my family in real life you’ll know my boys always look tired and I thought sneaking in extra vitamins might help? Bioglan sent us some Smartkids omega 3 capsules and Smartkids superfood shake. The milkshake powder sounded promising, chocolate flavoured but is loaded with “9 greens”, good bacteria and vitamin D.
As you might have read I recently went carpet shopping as I am on a bit of a home improvement mission. It’s got to a stage where I just hate most of the scruffy old stuff in our home, for example old carpets or faded/tainted paintwork. I haven’t exactly got a plan to how I am sorting the house out, I just repair or update whatever is annoying me the most. A little while ago that meant fitting a new fire and tiling it myself. Now it is most definitely all about the floor. My new carpet is being fitted in early January which means I have a little time to find a rug that I like, is machine washable and goes ok with the new carpet. This isn’t so easy! As is common with me, I’ve been distracted by cute stuff. Namely this football rug* from Zurleys website.
A little while back the boys and I received a little parcel of goodies. Aveeno body lotion, cream, bath oil, and a book for the lads. Ellie & Eddie is a book about a young girl and her pet gecko. Scaly lizardlike skin is something I know about. I have had bad skin since I was small and have memories of bathing in nasty oil prescribed by doctors. It was so heavy, slimey and felt as though I had been dunked in a vat of warm lard. I remember the smell, and I remember falling over like a duckling on a frozen pond when trying to get out of the bath.
I was recently asked if I would like to review JOHNSON’s baby easy rinse foaming shampoo with Jen. I know it’s called “baby” shampoo but I’ve been using it myself too, and it smells rather nice. It comes in a little pump action bottle that makes it foam lots like the hand-soap in public loos. Jen likes it mostly because it is fun, I like it because he wants to wash his hair! Until recently he was keen on being clean, baths, showers, paddling pools or hosepipes… he was not fussy.
