Little Loves November

The Christmas count down really is on now and I have to admit that I am really looking forward to the festive season. My Little Loves for the month of November has seen a bit of a winter/festive theme creeping in but just wait for Decembers post!



As well as fantastic parents evening reports for all of my girls, I had a fantastic letter through for my eldest saying that she has got exceptional potential and will be pushed to further her potential, something that even she was excited about. One proud mum here!

Telestrations - John Adams - Board Game Review

I don't know about you guys but one of the things I love about Christmas (yes I said it) is the time spent with family and something we really enjoy doing together is playing a good board game, even though there is always someone complaining that there's a cheater amongst us and of course there is always the obligatory sore loser.


In aid of my love of board games over the next three weeks I will be showing you three board games from the wonderful people at John Adams and IDEAL (before you read on go and check out their Facebook page for more gaming fun). First up is a new favourite of mine, Telestations.

Nineteen Letters by Jodi Perry November Book of the Month

I'm a sucker for a good romance novel but most of them are just light-hearted reads, stories to pass the time, there aren't many that really tug at my heart strings, but my choice for November book of the month, Nineteen Letters by Jodi Perry managed to pull at all of my emotions.

Nineteen. There’s something about that number; it not only brought us together, bonding us forever, it also played a hand in tearing us apart.

The nineteenth of January 1996. I’ll never forget it. It was the day we met. I was seven and she was six. It was the day she moved in next door, and the day I developed my first crush on a girl.


As a parent I'll admit one of the things I take more seriously these days is my oral health, obviously I like to demonstrate to my children that brushing teeth is important and that going to the dentist isn't a scary ordeal like my 5 year old seems to think it is (imagine huge melt-down with lots of screaming).

Read With Me #47 2017

Hello and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. After last weeks festive selection of books that I shared with you, I've got another Christmas themed book to show you all and this one is HILARIOUS!


The Stink Before Christmas is a very funny festive themed read from BAFTA winning children's TV presenters Sam and Mark. With a good dose of toilet humour I think you'll be hard pressed to not laugh as you read.
