Brown’s General Knowledge Quiz Book Review and Giveaway

I love a good quiz. Especially when its general knowledge questions. I got to say my husband is way better at general knowledge than me though. I find these questions a great chance to learn new facts.

Brown’s publishers recently got in contact asking if I wanted to check out their new general knowledge quiz book and run a giveaway with them.

We chose this photo of baby dottie to put on our paper canvas. The quality is fabulous as you can see below. The canvas was delivered really quickly and protected in its cardboard box.

Little Heartbeats Soother Review

We love trying out new products and this Little Heartbeats breathing and heartbeat soother from Summer Infant is one of our latest ones. It’s been ideal for soothing baby dottie as she’s been suffering from colic and reflux.

Little Heartbeats Soother Review

The Little Heartbeats Bunny Soother is supposed to imitate the sound of mums heartbeat so the baby feels close and comforted. Baby dottie seemed to settle whenever the heartbeat soother was on. It’s rather heavy so I wouldn’t want it to fall onto the baby, but it stands upright fine.

Terminating Terrible Pain Caused by Dental Issues

A few weeks back I had to have my top right wisdom tooth pulled out. The pain was excruciating and gave me really bad headaches. I wish I knew then what I knew now in how to control the pain while getting a dentist’s appointment.

Terminating Terrible Pain Caused by Dental Issues

Agony Aunts

Although pain is our brain’s way of protecting us from further damage or infection to organs and other areas of the body, most of us suffering from acute pain would prefer to do without. Unfortunately, we will all at some point in our lives end up with severe toothache as a result of irregular activity inside the tooth’s pulp chamber. However, the severity of the pain we feel due to such dental disasters is down to the degree of stimulus involved and which type it is. Those of us that have a favourite aunt to discuss various matters of life over with may not be at all surprised that she is able to shed some light on some of the causes of disturbing dental pain. But without hurting the feelings of our concerned relative, it would be wise to do some online research into the various reasons for tooth pain that never seems to wane.
