Both of my children had not been well for three weeks now. We had tried a couple of methods to relieve their blocked noses by asking them to bathe in a hot bath and to blow it out etc. Nothing worked better than Aqus Maris Nasal Spray. To be honest, I was not very keen on using the nasal spray myself. It took me a while to coax Ms C to use it. Ms K was more inclined to use it. The Aqus Maris Nasal Spray is simple to use and easy to press. The first time around, I had to squeeze twice before the spray came out. The amount of spray felt appropriate and light (I used it on myself to test it out). Mr K mentioned that the aftertaste was quite salty. Ms C took it quite well.
Do you ever leak urine when you run, cough, sneeze or laugh? Since two natural births, I found that I have these problems but have not taken it seriously. I went to the doctors a couple of years ago and was referred to the specialist nurse. I was not impressed with their advice and had left it. Now, it has got so bad that I have had enough and want to sort myself out.
In 2005 I had laser eye treatment after 15 years of wearing glasses. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. The treatment cost me over two grand and the surgery was over in about 10 minutes. Being glasses free has had such a positive impact on my life. Since then, I have been able to go swimming or diving without using prescription goggles, and take part in fitness activities without my glasses steaming up.Looking after my eye sight is very important to me now. I do not want to be called four-eyes girl: 四眼妹 again. That was my nickname from school.
I love blogging but it does take its toll as I tend to only get time to do so during the evenings. Consequently, I often do not have enough time to sleep or relax. I was therefore glad that Primavera sent me their Lavender pillow mist for review.
Both Mr K and I suffer from severe hay fever. Each time during the hay fever season, we both have to take anti-histamine drugs on a regular basis and use eyes drops. Last year, I took a home screen test which confirmed that I have an allergy to grass pollen. So my husband has to cut our lawn and I am also extremely careful to not go out when my neighbours mow their lawns.
Since settling down and becoming a parent, I have made a conscience effort to take extra care of myself by getting enough vitamins. I found it quite hard to have a balanced diet while at work. At the hospital where I used to work, amazingly they used to serve microwave meals due to health and safety. Staff weren’t allowed to take hot meals to the operating theatre dining area situated on the 12th floor. The kitchen is in the basement. So I found myself having to buy bottles of vitamins to supplement myself while I was pregnant. I’ve carried that habit on until now and still supplement my family with vitamins and glucosamine (for Mr C’s joints due to his old age!).
