There’s been a lot of confusion this year over whether it is autumn or winter. Having had several frosty mornings, I’m going to call it. Winter is here and that means many things, including the need to eat more soup.
It’s summer time. The schools are on holiday and many parents are (……kind of) relaxing and taking it easy. For some of the most vulnerable families in the UK, however, this is a time of increased stress and financial pressure and, sadly, a time when many children go hungry or have to tolerate a poor diet.
I’ve had to admit an awkward truth to myself. It’s one many a parent of young children will probably relate to: I need to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Do you drink enough fluids? Perhaps more importantly, do you go out of your way to ensure your children drink enough?
Here is a picture of my eldest daughter, Helen, and I. Don’t be misled by the Land Rover or Transit van in the background; they were stationery and not about to mow us down. We were, in fact, celebrating having just completed a fun run together.
It was a simple one kilometre run and Helen ran the entire thing with me as chaperone. In fact I felt very proud of her because I’m sure she came in within the first third of runners and way ahead of many of the grown ups! View Post
