One year ago today, Henibean was born.... it all started with my Hello post. At that time I had a goal to reach 100 blog posts in a year and I am happy to report that goal was accomplished on Friday last week... so today, on Henibean's first blog birthday, it's just the cherry on the cake with post 101!

They say a picture tells a thousand words.... that's an English idiom referring to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single image....
To some people daffodils, bunny rabbits and pretty painted eggs convey the message of "EASTER".... but to me Easter is summed up in a beautiful painting called Why Weepest thou?... by Liz Lemon Swindle ...

A few weeks ago, I logged on to the Microbiome Medicine Summit and listened to a bunch of talks on the subject of gut bacteria! I came away with a list of things to read and research....one of which was a book that took my interest... It is called "Brain Maker" by Dr Perlmutter.
When I read a book I usually ask myself a few questions...such as, what are the main stand out points for me and what are the walk away practical things that I can use from it? Today I would like to tell you a little about the book and a few of the points I came away with.

In today's busy world, It's important for everyone to have some type of stress reducing outlet or activity.... and different people have different methods of achieving this.
As you are probably aware by now, a few of my outlets are.... exercising, being outside, learning new things and doing projects.... and over the last (almost) year I have shared a few of these "Sanity space projects" with you on the blog. These projects have been done during respite time, or time away from the family. It's important for us mums and carers to get the necessary Time Out to recharge the batteries and refresh....but today I wanted to show you a project that Hubby has enjoyed doing in the bits of "CAVEMAN" time that he has had.....or perhaps I should say "WOODSMAN" time?
It all started about three years ago after a summer respite trip we had taken to the Swedish Archipelago off the coast of Stockholm. We had traveled around from island to island and everywhere we went were these amazing Saunas or (Bastu) in the most picturesque of places....

I know it's only the beginning of March.... (but I know how some folks like to plan ahead) so today I thought I would tell you about a trip that daughter number two, Gem and I took at the beginning of December last year. We went to Lincoln (England) for a girls weekend break and to have a mooch around the Christmas markets! I know you probably don't want to think about Christmas right now and I promise it's not going to be all about that.... this post also includes an "eating out with food intolerance" restaurant review that we ate out at as well! You never know, Lincoln may be somewhere that you want to put on your bucket list of places to visit in the future.... or the market may be on your list of things to do?
