One Book Was All It Took

Written by: Dianne Edmonds Posted on 21 Jul 2022 0

I loved opening the box to receive this book. Books have always had a big place in my life and my bookshelves are full, but there is always room for 'one more'. One Book Was All It Took from EK Books, was released in July, by Wendy Shurety and Amy Calautti. Propping an extra cushion behind me I sat to take the time to read this children's book - now it's out of the box.

This delightful new book is a touching read, especially as we have friends who once had a shadehouse full of mulberry trees for their silk worms.

Another lovely book from EK Books published this month is Freddy the Not-Teddy. Freddy is Jonah's favourite stuffed toy, but no one knows quite what Freddy is - a funky duck, a peculiar platypus, a punk rock penguin?

I love how you mentioned that the "brain reserve can be used and needs to be refilled," because it is very true. If you train your brain, you can learn to use more of it. By doing this, you will become a smarter human being.

Lori 6/02/2014 7:09:12 AM Oh you are so funny! I started reading her book but kept forgetting about it (bought it as an ebook - so not the same as a book in your hands)! I bought some Tiaras to give to patients and now I will go buy some marbles! Thanks for sharing, Dianne!

Sarah 29/10/2013 5:31:53 PM "Dr Sara talks about womens’ tendency to “over providing”, which drains our energy, kills our sex life and undermines our families happiness. She also talked about the “muffin top” ie belly fat that won’t move, sugar cravings and women needing a glass of wine to sooth themselves and to settle down at the end of the day."

I think she might be onto something. I can certainly relate to most of these 'symptoms'.

Thanks Dianne

Glad you have survived the move and all seems to be going well. I love your website. I'm looking forward to having more time to click around here!
My moving tip is make up the beds as soon as you can in the new house (and don't cover the beds with stuff) know where the kettle is packed for emergency cups of tea and order take away dinner for the first night.
See you

Dianne Edmonds 3/06/2013 5:24:30 PM Thanks Lori for your comments. It would be great for postnatal mums to learn this now and not take 9 1/2 years like I did to find out about this information. I was listening to Dr Sara last night and was reminded that we can help join in with her audacious goal to balance the hormones of 1 million women in 2013 - starting here with our postnatal mums!

Thanks again Lori!
