Happy Christmas Everyone

Hi Everyone, just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and hope you get lots of lovelies under the tree.

I'm going to working quite a bit over Christmas and spending some quality time with the two  men so this will be my last post for a few days. Blogging will resume on the 27th but I will be on Facebook and Twitter for chats xxx

WIN!!! Maalox Plus Survival KIt

Christmas is definitely a time when heartburn and indigestion are extremely common. Maalox Plus did a survey and found that 90% will overindulge in festive fare; the traditional calorie-cramming Christmas lunch of fat-loaded food; not to mention the booze, the mince pies, the nibbles or the endless boxes of biscuits and sweets. With the average person consuming a whopping 6,000  calories on Christmas day alone, it’s hardly surprising the assault that it can take on their digestive systems as 44 per cent say they expect to suffer the discomfort and misery of heartburn & indigestion this Christmas.

To help with the effects of Christmas, Maalox Plus have given me two Survival Kits to giveaway.
Each Kit Includes:

Toothbrush & toothpaste
Glucose sweet
Eye mask
Fresh wipe
