The disease had simply spread too far. Donna’s prognosis was given as weeks, without intervention, and, at best, six months. We had no option but to follow a course of alternative therapies which eventually led us to a World We had not known existed. cancer is a strict teacher, but the lessons are there for us all. We leamed to become more caring, more accepting and more loving human beings. We learned the arts of meditation, herbalism, homeopathy and simple living. Finally, just before Christmas 1999, we heard the words we had longed to hear: ‘no clinical evidence’. The information in this book is an amalgam of the vast amount of research conducted throughout the past century up to today. It is drawn from the works of a great number of researchers, doctors, scientists, health care professionals and ordinary people who simply wanted to understand.

xiv + 274 indexed pages. The ultimate guide for parents who dream of having a little less chaos and a lot more time for the good things in life Written by mother of five, Nicole Avery, this book shows harried parents how, with just a bit of planning, family life can become easier to manage, less stressful, and decidedly more fun. "Dream on," you say? "I might as well try to herd cats as to get my kids to follow a lot of arbitrary rules!" And Nicole would agree, which is why Planning with Kids isn't like any other parenting guide out there. It was inspired by Nicole's blog of the same name, which, over the past three years, has garnered a huge audience of likeminded parents who have achieved nothing short of miraculous results following her advice. While other prescriptive guides offer mums and dads cook-cutter solutions to the challenges of raising kids, this handbook focuses on one simple, straightforward idea: by implementing a few simple strategies for how you do things, you'll make more time for you to be you and your kids to be kids. You'll find strategies for streamlining and enhancing everything from the routines of daily life, to family relationships, to budgeting and finances, playtime and much more! Nicole Avery is the master organiser behind popular blog 'Planning with Kids', where she shares tips and tricks to organising the chaos of family life. This is her first book.

What's up Mate?, Bales, Helen
6 Bales, Helen What's up Mate?
Australia Hodder & Stoughton 1987 0340372036 / 9780340372036 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
32 pages including colour illustrations. During the eighteen months my son Anthony was under treatment for cancer, we all - doctors, nurses and family - developed the habit of greeting him with "What's up, mate?". We didn't expect a reply but more often than not we did get a smile. Perhaps in the beginning, the question was too difficult for a six-year-old child to answer. During the long period of struggling to communicate and cope, Anthony himself became aware of our problem. When I decided to try to put it all down on paper, the idea was instantly endorsed "The kids need it, Mum," said Anthony. So do parents, friends, relatives and teachers. I hope that "What's Up Mate?" will make it just a little easier to cope in a very difficult situation.

As the coastal vegetation of the Jervis Bay region is quite different from that of the inland part of the Territory and would add greatly to the complexity of this guide, it has not been included; and as an additional aid to a compact guide, the descriptions have been kept as short as possible. References to further reading are included for those wanting more information.

And I felt indescribably wonderful, the way I was moving, it was very joyous. And some judgemental part came in and said this is not very interesting dancing, it's a bit banal. And it ?oated past because I didn't care, I just kept on dancing because it didn't matter what that judgement was".
