Sharps Bin: a simple guide

Sharps Bin: a simple guide

From day dot, I have used a sharps bin. Without fail. It is for the safety of others, more than just myself. I keep it up high in the bathroom on a shelf, well away from the tiny hands of my precious toddler. I also […]

Dear Diabetes…

Dear Diabetes…

  Dear Diabetes, It’s been 13 years since we got together, so I thought I would mark our ‘anniversary’ with a chat. A reflection. To start off, you are inescapable and at times, let’s be honest, a first class arse hole. You have seen me […]

Chilli and Lemon Roasted Almonds

Chilli and Lemon Roasted Almonds

One of my favourite snacks of the moment is flavoured almonds. Not shop bought ones I must first add- as these can be coated in lots of unsavoury additions that make the simple almond a bit of a health hazard. Available all year round, almonds are […]
