Party Tonight? Think Ahead

Christmas Party tonight? Then think ahead to tomorrow morning as you could still be over the limit hours after your last drink.
• Any amount of alcohol affects your ability to drive. 
• You could be over the legal limit many hours after your last drink, even if it's the 'morning after'. Sleep, coffee and cold showers don't help to sober you up.
• It is not possible to say how much alcohol you can drink and stay below the limit. It depends on weight, age, sex, metabolism and of course, what you are drinking.
• The safest thing to do, is to not drink any alcohol before driving.
• If you do drink, plan how you will get home in advance; save a licenced taxi number on your phone, book a taxi in advance or agree with friends who will be the designated driver.

Which? Consumer Site - Safety Notice Regarding Toy Slimes & Putties

The consumer site Which? have tested 13 toy slimes and putties from a range of high-street and online retailers including Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Argos and Hamleys. More than 40% of the slimes and putties on sale for Christmas that we tested failed the EU safety standard for toys (EN 71-3). They’re pictured above.
The EU safety standard specifies that toy slimes must have boron levels that fall below 300mg/kg and toy putties must have boron levels that fall below 1,200mg/kg.

Exposure to excessive levels of boron could cause irritation, diarrhoea and vomiting in the short term, and may impair fertility and cause harm to unborn children in pregnant women.
