As bars, restaurants and theatres close and non-vital meetings are discouraged, there is the chance that come the evenings and weekends we find ourselves with time on our hands.

A Simple Guide to WFH

A Simple Guide to WFH

For those who are not familiar with the acronym WFH it is not an abbreviation for an expletive but rather the term Working from Home.

As the situation on Covid-19 changes, on a day to day basis, the concerns around the workplace increase on many levels and the impact looks severe no matter what industry.

Watching an episode of First Dates (unashamadely love this programme) a father of 10 children had a date with a mother of 1. Similar age the date as an observer could have gone either way but the moment the bill was presented there was no doubt who was expected to settle up.

Listening to Kate Taylor ( sex therapist ) at the Vagisan UK event in Camden, January 26th , it was interesting to hear her speak on the problems women encounter dating in mid life.  The lack of confidence that ensues particularly around the details of bedroom activities, and I’m not referring to book at bedtime or reorganising the underwear draw…..

Reading an item from @Pausitivity on the subject of depression and anxiety which has been recognised as the most common reason for women taking a trip to the GP’s surgery without recognising that they were going through the menopause and, only 5% recognised that depression and anxiety were in fact a symptom.

2020 - It's Time for the Rat

This blog is a nod to our Chinese colleagues who work tirelessly for us and lend their support with innovative products.

The Chinese New Year or Spring Festival is determined by the date of the Lunar New Year where celebrations take place on the new moon between 21st January -20th February.

Helicopters and Snow Ploughs. What is the connection ?

Helicopters and Snow Ploughs. What is the connection ?

Over the years a label has been applied to most things in our daily lives and "parenting" is no exception with many being far from complimentary.

Is Veganism the Meal Deal ?

Vegan is, without doubt, the hot potato at the moment with more and more people turning to this as their preferred choice of diet.
