Just as I was feeling a bit smug about our rather mild winter and ready to head outdoors with my list of “things to do” those cold relentless westerlies arrived and they hammered away at us for weeks and weeks. Then just like that, they were gone.
No wind, no rugging up, no banging windows nor slamming doors, just quietness and a nice feel of summer warmth.
It’s amazing what you can achieve outdoors in just one short good-weather week.
We cleaned the barbie, the cars, the house – inside & outside (sort of), cut the grass, hacked back weeds and re-staked the veggie garden.
And now I can head back indoors with Christmas baking on my mind.
For those who prefer a quieter approach to warmer days a cosy cane chair outdoors in the sun or behind glass can be just as beneficial to body and mind.
The other good thing about warmer, drier days is aches & pain feel that much better and moving about is that much easier. Increased mobility also means better blood flow to places of inflammation and disease thus helping remove toxins, so our body can heal and restore.
Quite simply the more mobile we can be, the better we will be.
Summer is also the best time to remove and air your Magne-Sleep. Some medical experts suggest it is a good thing to take a break from Magnetic Therapy. And very often it’s a nice reminder of all the good things that Magne-Sleep is doing.
Once we start thinking Spring cleaning or Christmas it’s very hard to stop….maybe the pillows are looking a bit lumpy or worn and tired?
So don’t miss out on this great early Christmas Bonus!

This year it’s our turn to host Christmas lunch.
Our house is quite cosy and the family is growing in numbers and size so we are keeping everything simple but plentiful!
One of my favourite treats for the kiddies is Meringue Snowballs.
2 egg whites, pinch of salt, 1/8tsp cream of tartare, 1/2cup sugar,
1/2tsp vanilla essence, 1/2cup chopped jelly beans, 1/2cup grated chocolate.
Beat egg whites and salt until frothy then add cream of tartare and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar one tblsp at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in vanilla essence, chocolate, and jelly beans.
Drop spoonfuls on grease papered tray.
Bake 120c 1 hour. Turn off heat and leave in oven overnight.
Meringues are best made on a dry – no humidity- day.
