Scheckter's Organic Energy Drink

Everyone gets a little tired spell at some point throughout the day, and we all need little pick me ups to keep us going. I like to try all kinds of interesting ways to keep me feeling perky as I do suffer from that lagging feeling about 11ish or 3ish depending on how early I have been awake for and how much I've done during the day. The 3.00pm lag is dangerous as its school pick up time then. I always seem to be tired at the wrong time of the day.....
So, with eating healthily and adding supplements, I can keep going.
I originally came across Scheckter's Organic Energy drink in a Degustabox Delivery and really enjoyed it. I was asked if I would like to taste the difference between their Original and their Lite version.

Derma Babies in London Products

When you are looking a perfect gift for a Baby, it's really hard. What exactly do babies need ? Apart from the usual clothing and things they can stare at, it's nice to give a gift that will benefit them in some way, and also looks good for Mum.
Well Derma Babies who are based in London have the most gorgeous gift set, which includes their Heavenly Baby Wash, Heavenly Baby Moisturiser and Heavenly Nappy Cream all packaged into a lovely bag.
They would also, post the gift direct to Mummy & Baby, as the way they wrap it up is amazing. Nothing like what you would expect.

Cassiobury Farm & Fishery - Watford - Second Visit Update

I thought I would quickly post some pictures of our second visit to Cassiobury Farm following my original post of the farm HERE. We absolutely loved this little farm, which is right on our doorstep. Watford needs this. Its great for educating the children and adults alike. Its a place to relax and enjoy the noises, aswell, as fish and having a look at animals you wouldn't normally get the chance to see.

Oxhey Woods Sculpture Trail

I have been told by many people that I really must visit Oxhey Woods near Watford in Hertfordshire and do the Sculpture Trail with the kids. So finally.....we have managed it. And ...... now I know why. Its amazing. People have volunteered their time and their skills to add something special to Oxhey Woods.
This is by far a Must Visit - see the pictures, and you'll see why. Its super cool and the kids had a great time too. It makes 'walking the woods' a bit more special. I wish every town had a sculpture Trail or a Woodland Park. 

We'll be going again very soon, as its great for the kids and the dogs.

Cassiobury Farm & Fishery - Watford

In a town called Watford, there is a large park called Cassiobury Park. This is somewhere where everyone can go and enjoy the woods, as well as the open spaced areas which include a children's recreational area and a mini train through the woods. There is plenty of space for everyone and is a great place to walk the dogs too. Plenty of people have picnics in the nice weather and just stay and relax all day.
Cassiobury Park is next to the old Watercress Farm in which is part of Croxley Hall Farm. The Sansom family had been cultivating watercress for five generations in England, and one of the Sansom's opened his farm in Croxley Green on the River Gade - right on the border of Watford in early 1820's. The farm continued to grow Watercress until the 1980's where it was eventually closed. The farm has just sat there for years, and finally someone bought it. We, the public wondered who it was, and what they were going to do to the farm. People said he was going to start the watercress farming again, and we saw signs of a mass refurbishment of the whole area (as you can walk past the farm, but there was no-way in, as it is private property) Every time we walked past something was being built or land was being moved. It was a huge mystery.
