DK Workbooks With Carol Vorderman Review

With 6 weeks of Summer holidays came a much welcome break from school however along with this came the worry that my kids would perhaps become a bit rusty with the skills they'd learnt that year. especially Gracie with it being her first year. So when I was offered the chance to review the new DK Workbooks with Carol Vorderman, I was more than happy to accept.

There are 4 books in the series which are as follows :

- 10 Minutes A Day Spelling Fun (ages 5-7) (DK, £5.99) 
- 10 Minutes A Day Vocabulary (ages 7-11) (DK, £5.99) 
Made Easy Spelling Punctuation and Grammar (ages 5-7) (DK, £3.99)
- 10 Minutes A Day Maths (ages 5-7) (DK, £5.99)

We not only received three out of the four books, we were also surprised with pencils, rubber and notebook too. 

Read With Me #35

Hello and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. So the kids go back to school on Thursday so this week will be our last library trip for a while.

read with me
The girls managed to complete their reading challenge last week, this earnt them all a shiny medal.

They've really loved joining in, I think it has been especially good for my 5 year old as it has kept her skills up from what she learnt in her first year so hopefully going back to school this week won't be too difficult for her.

Did any of your children manage to finish the the reading challenge??

I've been doing a bit of reading myself and one book that I've been really looking forward to was Fallen Crest University from Tijan. This is the final book in a series of books, I actually re read the other books before reading this to refresh my mind.

Project 365 2015 Week 35

We're nearing the end of the Summer holidays and the sun actually managed to shine for a couple of hours but the rain has meant lots of indoor photos for this weeks project 365 which I do apologise for.

Day 235

A week of rain began, I love watching how well my kids can play by themselves, their imaginations are incredible.

What To Do With Myself Now The Kids Are Getting Older?

Next week the girls go back to school and Layla will start doing more hours at playschool now that she receives 15 free hours each week. This is a huge help to us not having to pay for playschool right now as the husbands wages have gone down yet the bills have predictably gone up. It was also a huge reminder of just how fast my children are growing up!

Frozen Banana and Peanut Butter Sandwiches

I love bananas and I love peanut butter so what could be better than combining the two to make the perfect snack. I love putting both ingredients together in sandwiches or on slices of toast but in the Summer months I rarely fancy either so an alternative for my favourite foods was needed, introducing the frozen banana and peanut butter sandwich.
