Everyday anxieties – is it just me or do most people have them?

Everyday anxieties – is it just me or do most people have these? To clarify, I’m not talking the level of anxiousness which (thankfully) only happens every so often and forces me into cold sweats and an irrational panic.

Don’t forget just how important the mental health of our children is

A vitally important subject which was really emphasised to me by an e-mail I received earlier this week (more of that later).
