Back on the reading wagon.

Happy June guys. In Hastings we’ve been having some lush weather of late, and on Sunday we chilled in the garden most of the day. We picked up some new garden furniture the other day, second hand from someone locally who advertised it on Facebook. So I lounged on it reading a book which I’ve…

The John Lewis Christmas Advert.

You’ve seen it haven’t you? I mean everyone has seen it right!? If you haven’t then here it is, #BusterTheBoxer. What do you think? I think it’s really sweet, and for a change doesn’t make you want to cry! Mix of children and animals is going to be a winner for many! But I’m not a…

Always the Bridesmaid

This is a book title, honest! Although I am always the bridesmaid, so really I could identify with Maddie (the main character from this book) to some extent!    I picked up Always the bridesmaid by Lindsey Kelk at a charity shop, I’m glad I did! I really enjoyed this book, it’s funny, witty, emotional,…

Reading list

Ive always been a bit of a book worm! When I was younger it was books like The Secret Garden, The Chronicles of Narnia, Roald Dahl and Beatrix Potter.    One of my favourite books from my childhood was The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo, which is where my love of Lions came from! The…

Wish app – Latest purchase.

   I was very skeptical when considering using this app, everything seemed way too cheap and as it all comes from places like Hong Kong your item wouldn’t arrive for sometime/ would you even receive it? Reading reviews it was mixed but on the whole most people seemed pretty happy with it. The app is…

Pilgrims Rest – Battle

 Sunday I met with my friend Hannah in Battle- East Sussex for lunch. Daddy was home with the kids so it was nice to be able to really catch up properly with Hannah, we used to work together at the Vets, now I’m not there anymore we rarely get the chance to get together so…

What I’m watching.

– The Five 9/10  Tom and I have been watching Harlan Cobens The Five on Sky 1 for the last 5 weeks!    Reading the reviews of it online doesn’t tempt you to want to watch, but we both think it was worth watching!  It’s a mystery series created by author Harlan Coben. With over…

Our Mini Adventure

Saturday the four of us jumped in the car and drove to Eastbourne. We visited Eastbourne Miniature Steam Railway Adventure Park.  This was our first visit and I’m a little disappointed that we have only just discovered it! We loved it!! Prices are really reasonable, Bunny got in free as do all under 3s and…

Book recommendations.

If you have a child obsessed with anything that has wheels, an engine and dinosaurs and they enjoy reading/ looking at books then these are the books for them!    Dinosaur Dig, Dinosaur Rescue and Dinosaur Zoom, by Penny Dale.  My son loves them, he ‘reads’ them to his sister every morning, and although he…

Spider-Man never sleeps and nor have I. 

 So as you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been a little caked out lately. Here are pictures of the two cakes I’ve made over the last 2 weeks. The Spider Man cake was for a friends little boy, me and both the kids had fun at his party (which took place at a farm) despite the torrential…
