This November I was very poorly and had to rest my left shoulder.
This December I attended an evening with the Creative team at Heart & Parcel Manchester, UK and
Received my WHO'S SHE - a guessing game about extraordinary women and my September/October and November/December editions of Ethical Magazine, UK
I was admitted to hospital for low haemoglobin and shoulder pain and had lots of drips for pain relief.
I had to rest for the remainder of the month.

Despite having the mother of all colds I trundled my way to Cultureplex, Manchester on a cold winter evening to support a wonderful social enterprise called Heart & Parcel.
This event had been organised by Clare and Karolina Directors and Founders and of Heart and Parcel to explain the process of publishing their inspirational cook book highlighting recipes cooked by English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) to improve their English skills.

In December I was over the moon to receive my WHO'S SHE? - a guessing game about extraordinary women.
ABOUT WHO'S SHE?
WHO'S SHE is a two player tabletop game about courageous women who changed the world. From Hatshepsut to Frida Kahlo. Discover their incredible adventures!
Clever icons printed on the board give you a quick summary about their life stories.
Guess their identity by asking about their accomplishments, not their appearance, with questions like: Did she win a Nobel Prize? Did she make a discovery? Was she a spy?
The game includes 28 biography cards full of fun and interesting anecdotes about their life stories.
Also read my September/October and November/December editions of Ethical Magazine, UK.

Thank you for reading and I wish all my friends a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020.
In 2015 my Creative Director Helen Barlow Scott and I worked to design The Little Fair Trade Stamps which would be included in the launch of The Little Fair Trade Shop website Quarter 1, 2016.
In this blog I explain what each stamp means and introduce you to a fairtrade producer who has aligned their business to implement and promote a living wage, decent working conditions, transparency and accountability, empowerment, environmental sustainability, dignity and self respect for all.
This is my second year participating in Plastic Free July and due to my three surgeries and Covid-19 I have found the challenge difficult.
The UAE ethical movement is still in its infancy and substitutes for products like reusable/circular feminine hygiene and natural beauty products for acne/sensitive skin are limited.
I hope to continue my plastic/zero waste journey and hope to gradually reduce my consumption of menstrual hygiene and cleaning products and learn how to make my own soap, body wash, bread, conditioner and compost my waste..
It will be a long work in progress, but I'm optimistic.
This is my summary about how I am consciously trying to live a fair trade ethical life.
This blog illustrates the small steps I have taken to live a life free of clutter, materialism and throw away society.
It has been a natural progression from fair trade campaigner, educator and social entrepreneur to ethical consumer.
