What I wouldn't give for some bread or cake right now! I have been 'doing' a Keto for the past 8 weeks, which means very low carbs, and no sugar.......I've not had Dumouchel bread for all this time, it's starting to make me twitch! I'm wondering whether I can give Thierry a challenge and get him to make some low carb bread... or just make it myself! I am please with the benefits it has given me have; even if my other half is ahead of me by miles.... taking each day and exercising when I can, is all helping. I don't like the word diet, I like changing habits. It's all going in the right direction... my wrists look amazing!
I've had some great meetings this week. I received my holiday tickets from the lovely Natalie, our local travel counsellor. I had an introductory meeting with one of our local accountant, Cutler & Co. I also went to a lovely little independent ladies clothes shop in Swillington, called Style Attic, a lovely little boutique, something different, definitely worth a visit. It's just on the parade of shops where the launderette has been for many years. I also had a lovely meeting with another new independent coming to Garforth, let's get it all through planning first and then we can shout #charcuterie #watchthisspace
Could This Be A Good Time To Invest In Your Smile?
13 May – 13 June 2019 is National Smile Month - A charity campaign which is dedicated to improving oral health and promoting the importance of a healthy mouth.
So, was there ever a better time for you and your family to embrace the scheme’s three key messages?
Why oral health matters
We all probably know what we should be doing, but research has shown other benefits of good oral health that you might not be aware of:
A healthier life…… The mouth is the window to the body, so having good oral health can lower the risk of heart disease, strokes, diabetes, dementia and problems during pregnancy.
A longer life……Those who have a full set of teeth at 74 years old are significantly more likely to reach 100.
A happier life….. A healthy mouth doesn’t only have physical benefits. It also improves our outlook on life. A positive influence on our confidence, relationships and careers - a healthy smile that you’re proud of.
For those of you behind with check-ups or looking to improve your smile?
Well make today the day to contact your friendly dental practice. Whether it be getting back into the habit of the routine check- up, seeing your hygienist or improving your smile with cosmetic treatment like whitening and teeth straightening.
‘A Smile is Happiness You’ll Find Right Under Your Nose’
Lots of Gin events coming up, in and around the area – so follow our Events page on Facebook to find out about them and a lot more things going on locally https://www.facebook.com/themaindeal/ in the next couple of weeks!
So Emsley’s old premises, next to the Good Food store, will be getting a traditional sweet shop! I hope it works well in this little spot. Something new and different too. I’m hoping it has an old fashioned feel, with bags and quarters… something traditional will go a long way.
Reed Rains old premises is also underway for change, as it puts up the 'under offer' sign this week, as the price tag for it’s yearly rent is high, I’m just hoping it’s not a franchise or a chain; unless something different, we don't have already!
So as of last week, we are excited to announce the new independent company coming into Garforth, I’m keeping the premises quiet for a little while longer - but you can follow them and see what they will have to offer https://www.themaindeal.co.uk/items-i-need.html #Fewgifts
This is me signing off until Friday 7th June – I’m off to a country where the hills are alive with the sound of music ; )
Until then, enjoy the spring break, the lovely weather is back again next week, fingers crossed!
My name is Christine Thom, I came to live in Garforth nearly 22 years ago; you may have seen me around ?
