Mum's Birthday

Mum’s Birthday Gift Guide – Mayflower Blogs

July is so ridiculously busy with Birthdays filling the majority of the month.  I’m usually a dab hand at choosing gifts, but I’m starting to have less and less time to find unique gifts, and I know others are too.
I decided to help you all (and myself), by putting together a handy gift guide with some fab idea for your Mum/Mother In Law/Step Mum etc….

Super Colour Deluxe Aquadoodle from Tomy

We were kindly sent the new Super Colour Deluxe Aquadoodle from Tomy, for Miss Olivia (and her Brother) to try out!  We’re no strangers to an aquadoodle-one of my favourite things to take for Olivia to do on holiday, or on long car journeys, is the portable, smaller one of these-they fold away neatly and make no mess!

Caidr-Self help advice at your fingertips

Is it only me that worries when their child is unwell, not only about what they could have and how I could help, but also about wasting doctors time!

I’m such a worry wort, I concern myself that if I keep going to the doctors surgery, they’ll start to think I’m crazy and not take anything seriously!

I’m always Googling (I know I shouldn’t), so when I found out about Caidr, a new app which enables you to check symptoms, Google took a back seat!

Harley Street Hair Clinic-FUE Hair Transplant Procedure

Before I begin this blog, I know you’re probably thinking, what could I possibly have to say about hair transplants!

However, what those of you who have never met me or my Husband will know, is that we have more experience in hair loss than you’d think!

My Husband began losing his hair in his 20’s.  It began with just thinning, but eventually he slowly lost the hair on the top of his head.

A member of his family had a hair transplant, but I asked him at the time if he’d want to do the same, and he said he wasn’t bothered.  I think as time went on, that decision would’ve changed but we just didn’t have the opportunity.

Nowadays, he shaves it all off-even the bits that still grow!  I couldn’t imagine him with hair now, and he’s happy with how he looks, but I do wonder if he’d heard about the FUE Procedure at the Harley Street Hair Clinic, he’d have made a different decision.


What is the FUE Procedure?

FUE-Follicular Unit Extraction, sometimes referred to as follicular unit transplantation, is the modern technique of hair restoration. FUE is a more advanced method of hair transplants than previous techniques like strip harvesting transplantation or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation).

During an FUE transplant, a highly experienced doctor extracts hair follicles from the donor area, typically the back of the neck, using a specialised extraction instrument less than 1mm in diameter. Follicles are then transferred to the recipient area on your scalp and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope in groups of one to four hairs, just as they grow in nature.
This is a Minimally invasive,surgical procedure so you will remain fully conscious the whole time as only local anesthetic is required. Recovery time is short and the risk of complications is low.
After the procedure we will provide you with clear instructions on aftercare, as well as medication and topical treatments to give you the best result possible.
FUE differs from normal hair transplants in several ways. The first is that it is noticeable for not leaving any linear scars, or any noticeable changes (other than a renewed lease of life for your hair.)
Once you have undergone FUE, the results are permanent. While the initial transplanted hair will shed a few weeks after treatment, it will grow back strong and healthy.

How much does it cost?

The FUE hair transplant cost varies-but on the Harley Street Hair Clinic website there is plenty of information to work out how much it will cost you. Click HERE for the cost details.

The Punch Tavern Canterbury-Stonehouse Pizza and Carvery Review

We were recently invited to The Punch Tavern in Canterbury, Kent, to try and review their dinner menu!

We don’t get to go to many meals out as a four, mainly because the restaurant needs to be family friendly, as we have children that can sometimes be a little feral, but also because any family friendly restaurants in our local area just aren’t that nice.

Private Renting

Private Renting-What Happens When Repairs Aren’t Carried Out?


Unfortunately, I do not have the luxury of owning my own home.  We have had a few homes, all of which were rented, either via letting agencies or social housing.

We now privately rent our current home, and, as per the tenancy agreement we signed when we moved in, we have a policy that states, the landlord is responsible for repairs to; the property’s structure and exterior, basins, sinks, baths and other sanitary fittings including pipes and drains, heating and hot water, gas appliances, pipes, flues and ventilation, electrical wiring and any damage that is caused when the repairs are attempted.
