Read With Me 2018 #11

Hello and welcome to this weeks Read With Me, thank you to everyone who linked up last week, always appreciated.


Normally when I read I read one book at a time. I've always wondered how people manage to read more than one book at a time, how they concentrate and remember more than one storyline. But last week I converted.

My Sunday Photo 2018 #11

My girl's school never celebrate World Book Day on the correct date for some reason but this year it didn't seem to matter as much because the snow seemed to make half of the country late. Here are my lot all dressed and ready to celebrate.


I wonder if you can guess who they're meant to be.

Parents Evening, Dressing Up and Making Changes #LittleLoves

Seems like I've had such a busy start to the year, never a dull moment although it was nice to finally get some couple time with the husband last weekend (even if it did result in a horrific hangover for me). After putting up with ear ache for majority of the week, I'll admit that I am on the count down for the Easter holidays as I'm in desperate need of a break from routine and craving some proper time with family oh and some warmer weather would be nice. 

This week also sees the end of the abundance of birthdays that I've had to buy presents for, seems mine and the hubby's families mostly cluster around January, February and March, our bank balance needs as much of a break as I feel I do. 

Enough of my usual moaning, here's what I've got to show for this weeks #LittleLoves


Last week I talked about reading the book, The Bone Sparrow. Well when I was around a quarter of the way through reading it, I happened to get a notification that I'd been aprroved to read a certain novel on Netgalley, one I'd been desperate to read for a while. Now I don't typically read more than one book at a time but I was so excited that I downloaded the book instantly and began readin it straight away

I Really Want the Cake Book Review

I don't think it will come as a surprise to you all when I tell you that I REALLY like cake, I mean as long as you put fruit it then it can even become one of your five-a-day right? And I mean I don't just like cake because it tastes good (and that of course puts me in a good mood), no I also enjoy everything cake like because it means I can bake them with my children and what better activity to do together with your kids when you get such a delicious ending!

So of course when I was emailed and asked if I would like to take a look at Simon Philip's latest picture book, I Really Want the Cake, well I could hardly resist now could I. 


How on earth do you resist the most amazing cake?

One little girl is about to find out just how hard that can be.

Glimmies Aquaria Toy Review

Have you heard of Glimmies before, I certainly hadn't until recently when I was asked if my children would like to review some of the upcoming Aquaria range. 


As it turns out I should have known what they were because my youngest two had bought themselves a couple of them last year (shows how much I pay attention right?!). 

So what are Glimmies?
