is where we bought our new car. After a search lasting months we got a second hand Volvo. Josh came with us on many trail runs over these mths to see if he would fit comfortably in the back.

Harvey, off to … More Don’t panic, Don’t panic
So, the other week, staff at my son’s supported living house took Josh to receive his flu vaccination. Actually let me go back to when we visited Josh last week & he was sat in the back of the car, as we hurtled towards Abergele to get our McDonalds; telling us ‘the nurse had said … More ‘This is the dentist’……………..
Being a Coeliac I’ve been very happy with my gluten free bread in the past, made by Lifestyle and for some reason over the last year has been harder & harder for my chemist to track down. It was made fresh to order, approx a box-full of 8 loaves I’d freeze and I’d eat over … More Does anyone know where Lifestyle bread gone???
