This question is right up my alley! We have just got over a bout of conjunctivitis. I was bathing my older two children's eyes with salt water. After two days of this, no improvement. My baby daughter then got it and I bathed her eyes with breast milk. The conjuntivitis cleared up less than 12 hours...

My DH is a heavy smoker who will not consider giving up. As well as the health impact on him & the kids, the other issue for us is money. We are on one income, and $70 fortnight goes on cigerettes. Unbelievable that he is OK with that.

We've always done home made pizzas with bought bases. Tried every brand of base there is but never happy. Some so tough it can't be cut, others as tasty as cardboard. Now I have discovered how easy it is to make our own bases. Easy to make, and so delicious.

One tip. Don't skimp on a photographer. We decided not to get a professional photographer. Regretted it immensely. Guests gave us copies of their snaps, but almost none were good enough to put up on wall.

Baby shower gift list

I have received an invitation for a Baby Shower. Included in the invitation was a list of things the mum-to-be would like. Cot sheets, baby clothes etc. It included the brand name she wants, and the store where you can buy it. My feeling of pleasure upon reading the invitation turned to one of disbe...

I rarely go to ABA meetings now as my 2 older children make a bee line to the morning tea and fill up on rubbish. I always take a sandwich and some cut up fruit for them but they prefer the cakes and biscuits. Going to Playgroup is just as bad. Short of tying the kids to a chair there is no way I ca...
