LloydsPharmacy- so much more than a dispenser of medicines.

We have a LloydsPharmacy opposite our GP surgery and I love exploring the store while waiting for my prescription. In the past I have bought gifts, treats for myself, medicine cupboard essentials and even cat flea products in there!

Recently a second LloydsPharmacy opened in my local market town's centre and it has been invaluable for many reasons, including those last minute present purchases as mostly my town has estate agents and restaurants lining the High Street!

Until I visited the brand's summer showcase recently however even I had not realised the scale of what LloydsPharmacy has to offer.


Along with the obvious pharmacy items, non-prescription and homeopathic meds, first aid, sun-care, mum and baby and health and beauty products did you know you can get expert help on a wide variety of subjects?

Take asthma for instance. At the doctors, you have limited time and often your head is whirling with so much information you forget to ask questions. Maybe they have prescribed an inhaler for you, a child or an elderly relative.  What if in all the stress you find you aren't really sure how to use it? Luckily LloydsPharmacy can help you FREE to check you ARE using it properly and getting the full vital dose, or suggest different approaches and/or products if you aren't.

LloydsPharmacy is all about "healthcare for life" and so the Asthma Support Service is not the only free service they offer.

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles mystery puzzle #review

Every Christmas there is a toy which sends herds of shoppers into a frenzy trying to track down stock of the item on the top of their little loved one's wish-list. Last Christmas the UK went mad for Hatchimals from Spin Master.

My 11 year old daughter was disappointed that she did not get one of the furry friends who hatch out of their own egg in front off your very eyes. Stock was almost non-existent in our area as the toy proved so popular.

I redeemed myself somewhat this week however by presenting her with the Hatchimals CollEGGtibles mystery puzzle which comes with one exclusive figure concealed in that all important hatching egg.

She badgered me to take the essential photographs for the website right away so she could rip the box open - I don't think I've seen so much enthusiasm for a toy in a long time!
