Starting Our David Lloyd Wellness Journey

Now that Thea’s started school full time (and loving it, fortunately!) I have more time to myself. But what should I do with it? Keeping on top of the washing? More cleaning?

My hair has always been more or less poker straight, but that’s never stopped me wanting curls! I have tried all sorts of gizmos in the past but it always turns out to be too much of a faff. (Remember those gas-cylinder powered tongs from the nineties? And the weird rubber bendy things you wound your hair round before bed? Just the tip of the iceberg!) I reviewed some great hair straighteners a few months back, which do curl as well as straighten. But I never really got the hang of  ...
