Purple Coneflower and other change of season flu remedies

My entire household is now riddled with the flu. It appeared quickly, out of the blue, along with another cold-front from the Cape. I should, by now, be able to predict the cold due to the fact that during the course of last weekend, I packed away most of my winter wardrobe and made an attempt at organising most of my “spring” outfits for work. The various members of my household react and have vastly different opinions as to what works when it comes to flu remedies. Hubby, who arrived home last night with a less then chirpy demeanour,...

1 Week of clean eating meals for moms on the move

If you are anything like me you tend to spend a lot of time on Pinterest googling those meal-plans that seem to be too good to be true. You know the ones.

Keep your head up when things don’t go your way

Most women experience times in their lives when things just don’t work our the way you planned. Don’t get me wrong, most women I know are masters of planning weeks, weekends, meals, holidays, kids projects and birthdays and still manage to remember picking up birthday cards, renewing car licences and picking up the dry cleaning over and above cooking, cleaning and holding down a job.
