Choose Wellness -- May 2012
May 13, 2012
|Greetings, best wishes
... and welcome everyone to this Mother's Day and may I wish all Mums a very happy day, and, in fact, happiness for all days, and especially those who have just recently become a Mum. Welcome to Motherhood and I'm sure you'll find it a very rewarding and enlightening experience which will bring you much joy.
It's been so long since I've sent out a newsletter, and as this is Mother's Day, I thought I could be forgiven if I have a little 'brag' about my daughters. I'm very excited about them and their achievements.
Ngaio is in Melbourne this weekend for the opening of the first exhibition she has held in that fair city, at the Flinders Lane Gallery.
Do click on the link to find out more: - It is hard to envisage what 'the paintings' look like 'in the flesh' but they certainly sound very interesting and judging from the numbers she sold on opening night they must be quite impressive. I'm just sorry I'm not in Melbourne to see the exhibition and share her excitement ....
but then again...
I'd also like to be in Sydney this week where Katelyn is exhibiting at DesignEx - an exhibition for Architects, Interior Designers and the like - at the Convention & Exhibition Centre from 14 to 16 May.
You can read a little about her work & what she'll be exhibiting by clicking on this link.

"To live a long, healthy life, it is essential to take responsibility for your own health and take steps to improve and maintain it throughout your life."
We are just off to an impromptu Family picnic with son Anthony and family, so I quickly dashed off this Armenian Nutmeg Cake (recipe courtesy of my very good friend Sue) so thought I would include it here for you. It's dead easy and very tasty.
Stir combined soda & milk into remaining dry ingredients with egg & nuts & mix well. Pour into tin.
Bake in a Moderate oven for about 35mins. Let stand for 5 mins before turning out on to wire rack to cool and slice.
I'm sure you'll enjoy!
"Water exercise is a great alternative for people who have joint pain or trouble with hips and knees. The water will be a cushion for joints and provides resistance for a cardiovascular workout "
My knee is fast getting to the stage where it seems a replacement is necessary - I have been trying to avoid surgery by following the health tip shown above, and by keeping up with my Ambrotose powder, Omega 3 fish oil capsules and other supplements.
The hydro therapy certainly helps and is about the only exercise I can manage at the moment - it is so frustrating not to be able to walk without great effort and pain. I have an appointment with a knee specialist next week so here's hoping he has some good ideas for improvement.
Until then keep well and remember
'healthy cells = healthy bodies'
