“We’re doomed... doomed I tell you!”

It's the classic catchphrase uttered by Private Frazer in Dad's Army. We've all repeated it, (admittedly with varying degrees of accent authenticity), and many of us can still hear the original echoing inside our heads, thanks to continuous BBC repeats.

But has anyone else felt like they were living through an episode of the much loved comedy this week?

Even though we’ve spent a whole year slowly growing webbed feet, rowing our kids to school in boats and shivering our way to bed – now that the suns out the doom merchants have gone into overdrive.

I saw a succession of people moaning and groaning their way around the shops yesterday...

...”It’s just too hot!..”

...”When will this hot spell end, I don’t know how I will cope with it” They muttered as they toiled around the town centre.

But my personal favourite...”We need rain for the gardens” really got me fuming.

My garden is currently leaping into weed infested bloom and I spend every waking hour hoeing and pruning to attempt to keep my broad beans in view.

Every evening there is the kind of foot race that was common in the Olympics last year as me and my daughter sprint to the soft fruit patch to grab the strawberries and raspberries that are ripening daily.

Why in the name of all that is holy should we pray for more rain?

Get over it people, take some really simple steps to protect yourself and enjoy the sun

Get out and live a little

Today I’m taking my strawberry munching daughter out for the day.

We’re heading for a butterfly farm, and then maybe a boat trip along the river for a picnic.

This means we will be out in the sunshine quite a bit.

I’m follicly challenged and she’s fair skinned & young, so according to the moaning minis we should last about three nano-seconds before we burn to a crisp, develop melanomas and crumple like drying leaves in the sun.

But do you know what?

None of that is going to happen because we will be taking simple and safe steps to look after ourselves – and ensure that we return from butterfly world, with the remnants of a cream tea caked on our faces in better nick than we set off.

Firstly, we shall use common sense – good hats, loose breathable clothes and sensible walking shoes.

Next we will sparingly use a good quality, all natural and completely nasty chemical free sun lotion on the various sticky out bits like noses, shoulders and ear lobes.

Finally, a dab of Manuka Oil or Emu Oil will be applied onto any mozzie bites or skin that escaped our protective measures and gets a bit red.

Ladies and gentlemen, by these powers we will be sorted and my advice to you is to do the same and...

...”Don’t panic Mr Mainwaring!”

See there is no need to panic now that the sun is finally here – use it to boost your mood, raise your important vitamin D levels and live a little.

Travelling blues dealt with naturally

Another affliction that always becomes a problem around this time of year is travel sickness.

Whether it is being cooped up in a car or coach, packed into and economy flight or gently rocked on a cruise ship – many of us find the feeling unpleasant at best, if not downright horrible.

Motion sickness (as your GP might term it) is very common and occurs when there is a conflict between what your eyes see and what your inner ears, which help with balance, is expecting to happen.

Your brain then receives a jumble of messages and gets very confused – quite why it takes it revenge by making us violently sick is a mystery though!

But once again help is at hand from a truly ingenious and cheap solution using a blend of essential oils.

Discover the all natural, drug free way to deal with travel sickness – Quease Ease

This little marvel easily slips into a pocket or handbag and can be discretely used at the first sign of trouble – and it costs less than you might think, only £10.99.

Interestingly, I came across this brilliant little inhaler when I was looking for something to help an aged aunt who was undergoing chemotherapy and was suffering from severe nausea.

The results were amazing and she was able to eat and travel without problem almost within days of using it.

From the information available it is able to be used following any surgical procedure to help deal with the problems associated with anaesthetics, as well as the more common problems of travel upsets.

It’s not something that Miss Collins and I will be needing on our short journey, but it is something I now always carry in the glovebox and has proved its worth more than once in recent weeks.  

...And the wait is over...

...As I told you on Friday the new book is imminent.

Yesterday we got an e-mail from the printer to say he had loaded the first delivery of ‘Everyday Superfoods’ onto a lorry and they would be with us tomorrow.

This means once it is checked out, and passed fit for muster I can properly launch it to the Good Life Letter readers.

I’m just beside myself with joy, and not a little bit of pride.

Writing books is something of a trauma as I told you before, involving me becoming a hermit in my study for weeks at a time – sandwiches and flasks of coffee are pushed through the door to sustain me, but otherwise I don’t rise from my task.

This book is the perfect companion piece for my cookbook ‘Season to Taste’, the two of them becoming what I have termed ‘The Seasonal Diet Programme’ and will be the cornerstone of my campaign to address the power of commercial food giants and the lack of support for simple home food.

Whether or not you already own ‘Season to Taste’ I am preparing to give you all the best offer to complete your ‘Seasonal Diet Programme’ – so look out for big news in your inbox over the next few days.

Yours, as always
