Ad|Reggie's 30-day Antinol Booster

Reggie has been taking part in the 30-day Antinol Booster Programme with Vetz Petz and it has been such a positive experience, I wanted to write about it and explain how easy the Mobility Screening is, so that your cats and dogs can take part too!  First of all, I'm sure you are all wondering, what is Antinol? Antinol is a 100% natural joint support supplement for cats and dogs, made from sustainably sourced Green Lipped Mussels. Its a fast acting formula which contains PCSO-524 and when taken daily will help your pets to maintain an active and happy lifestyle. Reggie is quite a young dog, so although this product will help in the long run with the wear and tear of joints, I didn't think that I would see quite the results I am sure older dogs will get from this supplement. But I was wrong!  Reg loves the outdoors, but getting him to run about in it, rather than stopping every two minutes to sniff about has proven difficult since we got him. I guess you could say he is lazy in

Egg-citing Easter Ideas

Another year of restrictions doesn't have to mean Easter can't be fun this year! So I thought I would put together some egg-citing Easter ideas to keep you and your little ones entertained over the Easter break! 🐥Alternative Easter Egg Hunts🐥 You can buy plastic, refillable eggs from supermarkets and craft shops all over. One thing I highly recommend doing is buying extra, because if like my child, the first experience with these eggs is a good one, they will become obsessed way past Easter with filling them with tiny toys and asking you to "guess whats inside"...over and over and over again! Better still, maybe hide them away until next Easter instead! 😄 As an alte rnative to filling eggs with chocolate or sweet treats, why not buy a new puzzle and put each piece into an egg to hide around the house? Then you piece it together once they've all been found. If you fancy working off all the chocolate you've *cough* already eaten, why not do an Easter Eggs-Erc

How to Celebrate New Years 2021

I think you will all agree that we are all just about ready to say goodbye to 2020 once and for all! Yet again, this will be another occasion where we will be unable to celebrate with our family and friends like we usually would. But with the kids at home, there is always some fun to be had! So here are some ideas on how to celebrate New Years 2021 at home with your loved ones. ⭐ Count down to an earlier hour ⭐ Just because it’s a new year come 12 midnight; doesn’t mean you have to keep the kids up for them to celebrate too! Just change the countdown time so everyone can be involved. Let’s face it, our children have been the only magic this year, so it only seems fair they should get to celebrate too! Go for a 12 noon countdown or make it just after dinner, say 6pm, or an hour before bed for them to have some fun and burn off some steam, which will hopefully mean they sleep better too…or here’s hoping anyway! You can find countdown videos on youtube to put on the big screen and ha

My Best and Worst Children's TV

Children's TV can be tedious at times. There are some programmes I have watched over the past 3 years that have literally made my blood boil! Usually these have been the ones my son has grown so fond of...lucky me! Others are great educationally or just really easy to watch! Here are some of my best and worst children's TV... Lets start with Little Baby Bum , with its endless variations of the same songs over and over. Within 10 minutes of watching it, you will want to turn it off. Just watching one episode is unbearable and wishing it to end doesn't make the time go any quicker unfortunately! For some reason, Little Baby Bum is the only thing I can put on the TV to calm O down, even now. If he is mega grumpy and has had a huge tantrum, Baby Bum fixes everything. If O is knackered, but wont sleep, I put Little Baby Bum on to keep him still and not waste anymore energy. So as much as I do hate it, it does come in very handy. It also really helped O learn numbers, which I kno

World Mental Health Day 2020

Unfortunately we live in a world where if you have something visibly wrong with you, you get all the sympathy. People care and are willing to do anything to help.  But if you tell people you are depressed, nobody knows how to react and people run away from having to deal with a scenario they are not used too. I think most people have suffered with mental health one way or another in their lifetime, even if they don’t know it. There is nothing to be ashamed of, but unfortunately stigma surrounding mental health is still common. I may not be a physical friend to you or even a friend at all, but if you are reading this and just need to talk to someone, I am always here. If you are feeling lost, lonely, finding life tough, just remember talking about it is always better than keeping it inside and trying to ignore it.  While stigma continues to exist, it can be eliminated with more education around it and awareness of the different mental illnesses that are out there. To help gain a better

Baby Loss Awareness Week: Guest Post with Booberrit’s Naomi

Baby Loss Awareness Week, which takes place from 9th - 15th October aims to raise awareness about pregnancy and baby loss in the UK. We are joined by Booberrit's Naomi who has been kind enough to share her story with us.  * TRIGGER WARNING* OUR STORY For us it was late September when what started as spotting (at work) ended in a week of harrowing physical and emotional pain (in hospital) which turned us from ‘parents to be’ (with hopes and dreams ) into a statistic. In the UK, it is estimated that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in loss during pregnancy or birth. Around this time each year I take a long walk to watch the leaves fall and reflect. There’s something both beautiful and reassuring about the falling autumnal leaves. Trees endure losing everything through the bitter cold of winter, because they know Spring is just around the corner. CHANGES My miscarriage was 5 years ago now. At that time awareness and support for baby loss were lacking. In fact, because of the mental a
