harm on the farm

After packing the overnight bags into the car, I said goodbye to the kids as they set off for their grandparent’s house. ‘I’ll be straight there after work,’ I said, giving my wonderful husband, Russ, 38, a kiss goodbye. In May 2019, we were celebrating Memorial Day weekend at my parent’s farm in Star Valley, Wyoming, US. I was working as a florist and had a few orders to fill before I could join them that evening. My parents, Rex and Debbie, had a large family – 12 children and 45 grandchildren – so it was always a big occasion when we got together. There would be hot dogs, fireworks, and a few tractor rides around the farm, courtesy of my dad, known as Papa Rex. ‘Have fun!’ I yelled, waving them goodbye. ‘We will,’ my…

make it count

Watching a Michael Bublé tribute, I was at a wake with my loved ones. However, this wasn’t a normal wake – it was a living wake… for me. It was August this year, and with a maximum of nine months to live, I wanted to make the most of my time. Me and my sister Rachel, have always loved singing Michael Bublé together, so it seemed fitting. I’d first been diagnosed with cancer nearly eight years ago, back in 2012, after my barber had spotted a mole on my head. ‘I think you need to get this checked out,’ he said to me. At 21-years-old, I wasn’t worried, but a few weeks later, I was diagnosed with melanoma cancer. Despite having just qualified as a firefighter, I had to give up my spot. I was gutted, but…

INSTANT appointment Kate Delmar-Morgan, registered nutritional therapist from Institute for Optimum Nutrition (www.ion.ac.uk) Going cold turkey Q I want to go vegan, but worry it could affect my health. Should I do it gradually or can I cut out all animal products overnight? Lisa, Basingstoke A Going vegan is a lot more complicated than just cutting out meat. Before you do anything, have a think about why you want to take this step? Is it for health reasons, environmental issues or do you feel strongly about not consuming animal products? If you decide you still want to take this route, you will need to ensure you are eating a varied, balanced diet, and not simply substituting animal products for processed alternatives as they may lack the nutrients you need. Calcium, iron, zinc, protein, healthful fats and vitamin B12…

through the lens

Watching my then two-year-old toddler bump into yet another wall, I feared there may be something wrong with her. ‘She’s always bumping things,’ I said anxiously to my husband, Shaun, 38. At first, we thought Matilda was just getting her bearings and learning how to walk, but as time went on, she became increasingly clumsy. Most parents wait until their children are six-yearsold to have their first eye test in school, but we decided to get a head start. Taking Matilda to our local Vision Express, they decided to give her a mild prescription to help her along. ‘Hopefully this will stop her bumping into things,’ the optician smiled. After that, we were told to go back every six months for a regular check-up. Only, back at home, the glasses weren’t helping – Matilda was as clumsy…
