Read With Me #39

Hello. Welcome to this weeks Read With Me. As always a big thank you to all those who linked up and commented last week. It really does mean a lot and on a side note, how are we into October already?

read with me
I've found myself reading less recently. Bogged down with my blog work, the kids school work and children being poorly.

That hasn't stopped me buying books though.

It is always worth keeping an eye out for free books over on Amazon. My kindle is packed with lots of brilliant stories that haven't cost me a penny.

It's a great way of introducing yourself to new authors, makes taking the risk of trying something different worth it.

Some of my favourite books have initially cost me nothing.

Things I Want My Kids To Know

As an adult and as a parent there are so many things that I want my kids to know. When I was younger I was one of those kids that said they didn't want to end up like their parents. Young and nieve, I thought I knew best and it was my way or the highway. It's sad that it took to having my own kids to make me realise that atleast part of what my parents were trying to tell me was actually good advice.

But I'm sure we all know that we all need to make our own mistakes and try to learn from them, we as the adults can only offer words of advice and hope that they are atleast in part listened to. So this post is an open letter to my kids, one I will let them read and keep my fingers crossed that it instills in them, even if they don't take it all on board now, they can look back on it as they get older and know that good old mum was just trying to help.

Aldi Lends a Spooky Hand With Halloween

Last year I had the pleasure of receiving a spooky package from Aldi for Halloween. This year Aldi have a new Halloween range in for their special buys and I was lucky enough to receive a spooktastic delivery from them to have a try of a couple of the items myself.

From party decorations and sweets to costumes and noisy toys, they have a great selection of scary things to choose from.
