Paper Tube Owls

Disclaimer: I almost never post crafts using toilet paper tubes… I always suggest, if any craft instructions call for tp tubes – that you cut down paper towel tubes instead. I’m not a major germophobe by any means – but for goodness sake people – let’s not have our kids doing too much touch feely on something that has sat next to a toilet half it’s life. Rant over… lets get crafting..!!


You’ll need:

Paper Towel rolls, cut in half or so

Can’t Sleep? Trick Yourself into it!

According to the Mirror: Ten million prescriptions for sleeping pills are written every year in England alone and a survey by Crampex has found that 86% of us suffer from sleep disturbance.

But you can trick yourself to sleep by trying these expert natural tips…


Inhale through your left nostril

This yoga method is thought to reduce blood pressure and calm you. Holistic sleep therapist Peter Smith says: “Lie on your left side, resting a finger on your right nostril to close it. Start slow, deep breathing in the left nostril.” Peter, author of Sleep Better With Natural Therapies (£13.99, Singing Dragon, out October 28), says this technique is particularly good when overheating or menopausal hot flushes are preventing sleep.

Squeeze and relax

Relaxing all your muscles can prepare your body for sleep. Anxiety expert Charles Linden says: “Lying on your back, take a deep, slow breath in through your nose and, at the same time, squeeze your toes tightly as if you are trying to curl them under your foot, then release the squeeze.”

The author of Stress Free in 30 Days (£10.99, Hay House) adds: “On another slow breath, curl your foot up toward your knee, then release. Breath again, contract your calf muscles, then your thighs, buttocks, belly, chest, arms, and so on until you have moved all the way up your body, squeezing and releasing the muscles one by one.”

When you have gone from head to toe, your breathing should be steady and you should feel ready for sleep.
