Health Checks

As I have said before Trinny & Susannah in their book The Survival Guide: A Woman’s Secret Weapon For Getting Through The Year they have dedicated June to being happy, healthy and wise. Naturally one of the things they have said is really important to do this month is to make an appointment for your regular cervical smear test. I know it sucks but its the wise thing to do if you want to stay happy and healthy.
