It's no secret that I'm not a huge fan of Winter. Winter brings us so many things to whine about - the cold weather, the high energy bills and ohhh the germs. We spend a great deal of time indoors during the Winter months which means, and here come the mum guilt, my kids spend way more time than I'd like them to on their devices when it starts chilling off. Staring at screens for lengthy periods is not great for their eyes or overall health.
Thankfully, for days where we allow our children more screen time than we should, we can protect them from harmful UV Blue light with Mitochondria safe Blue Blocking Glasses from MitoHQ.
Dry July is well underway now and for those who are participating, kudos to you. I love everything that Dry July stands for and all that it does to help and support those affected by cancer, however I have yet to participate myself. Why? Well despite how it may appear, writing a wine blog and all, I don't actually drink alcohol every single day, but I feel like if I were to try and abstain from consuming wine for an entire month a couple of not-so-nice things might occur. One being that I might make it to the end of the month - woo hoo, 31 days alcohol free and then bam, party time - and I might just find myself over indulging and making up for lost time. Hangovers are definitely not my thing. The second being that if I can't enjoy a sip of my favourite wines for an entire month, I could very well become difficult (or should I say more difficult - haha) to live with and I'd really hate to see my Mr Whine & the Tiny Whinies become homeless for July. I mean, right in the middle of winter - that's just cruel, it's freezing outside.
But, back to those who are participating, I totally applaud you and if you are looking for some delicious beverages to sip on while you complete the challenge, here are some yummy mocktail recipes that will tide you over until you reach your goal.
Wining and whining my way through life.
