Because it is November and Movember and such, everyone is talking about Prostate Cancer. Awareness is good, be aware, talk seriously about serious issues. Which brings me to sausages. Obviously.

Heck Sausages, who make some of the loveliest sausages out there, have changed their name to Check Sausages to help in the raising of awareness about prostate cancer, in a campaign unashamedly named ‘Meat and 2 Veg’.

Right, so I’ve been suffering this past week or so. A combination of a family tummy bug, a terribly knackered mattress and not bending properly when lifting my toolbox at work have had me aching and creaking like some kind of feeble old man.

Luckily, painkillers exist, the only problem I have is that I’m ridiculously absent minded and never take my tablets at the correct time. Well, I’ve been sent these new Combogesic dual action pain relief tablets to try out, with the hope that I will stop nagging and Gem can have some peace.

I had to pick these up from Boots and speak to a man in a lab coat and everything. So, yeah. (more…)

Hi there everyone,

Just thought I’d let you guys watch a little video all about nutrition, especially for kids during the first 1000 days of their life (That’s about 2 years and 9 months, in case you didn’t just use a calculator like I just did). It’s packed with useful info about childhood obesity, swapping out sugar, what you should eat when you’re pregnant or breast feeding. It’s all very informative and well presented. You can tell I didn’t make it.

This isn’t the video, stop clicking on it. The video is at the bottom of all this well-crafted hilarious blog writing.

Obviously this interests me a fair deal, because I have one of those babies that happen currently asleep upstairs, waiting until I am at my most asleep and comfortable before kicking off asking for milk. I mean, I’m trying to get the other two kids to eat more healthy too, but if I make a fuss about that and they rebel, we’re gonna have riots in the streets, vampire/werewolf marriages, sequels to Mary Poppins, basically Armageddon in a handbag.

Those lovely people over at Nutri-Plan have said I can run a giveaway for some of their fancy Tea-Tox detox teabags. Yay!
Now, normally I’d have a bit of fun and make you do some colouring in or whatever but 1. My last competition got 4 entries and the winner was in a foreign country and didn’t want the prize and 2. I’m really bloody tired.

I’d do the fancy embedding thing but WordPress is either being deliberately faffy with HTML or I’m rubbish. I’m rubbish.

Good luck!

Hey there folks, remember how you said I looked a bit tired and rubbish? No, of course you don’t, you think I’m awesome. But if I DID look a bit tired and rubbish, you’d probably recommend I go on one of those detox things, like fitness people do, or celebrity ladies with little bottoms.

Well, it just so happens that Nutriplan are offering a fantastic new way to detox, without the faff of going out of your way to research and buy your own fancy ingredients and supplements.

Hello there. Here’s me doing my bit to help… er… your bits with a little twenty odd animation I made to help support the #checkyourchaps campaign, raising awareness about testicular cancers and such.

So, please share this GIF on your social media, help support a good cause and have a fumble for me…

No not like that.

There you go.

Hhhhhhello Therrrrrre….
See? Did you smell that breath? Smelled lovely didn’t it.

Yeah it did. Do you know why?
Oh. You read the title of the blog. Well, smart-arse, you might have all the mad skills of reading things and that, but I am wearing a Spider-Man onesie and reviewing toothpaste and mouthwash on a medium-low popularity blog. So, who’s the real winner? That’s right. You. Dammit.

So, The Breath Co.’s Fresh Breath Toothpaste and Oral Rinse. Invented by Dr Harold Katz as a way to stop his daughter’s breath from smelling (no, seriously, that’s what it says on the box. And the kids say I’m an embarrassing dad. Actually, I just saw the pic of me in the onesie…)

This is a fancy mix of magic stuff that is supposed to make your breath smell lovely and not at all like the four cheese and ham toasties you had for tea. But does it work? (more…)
