Easy Paper Mache Easter Basket

Have you noticed the supermarkets are already flooded with Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies and chicks? It may be a little way off, but Easer for me, is a celebration of spring. The days grow longer, golden daffodils pop up everywhere, and baby bunnies hop in green fields across the land.

What's New at The Imperial War Museum North

Is there a better way to learn history than reading textbooks or browsing the internet? The best way, in my opinion, is to visit places of historical interest and get a feel of what has been. If that is not possible, a visit to a museum is the next best alternative.

The Imperial War Museum North in Manchester is no exception. Reading about the World Wars and contemporary wars is one thing. Looking at war memorabilia, real artefacts from real people who experienced it all, is something else altogether. The IWM North is full of large and small exhibits that are a stark reminder of the death and destruction wrought by the unending conflicts of the last hundred years.

We have been to the IWM North a few times now, and had a different experience each time. I am not just talking about the displays that have changed. As J has grown older, his attitude towards the Museum and the exhibits has changed as well.

I started using Theradome, the wearable laser therapy for hair loss, just over four months ago. As I have previously mentioned, I was suffering from post-partum hair loss but was not actively seeking any treatment for it. When Sally-Ann discussed Theradome with me, I was willing to give it a try.
