L.O.L Surprise! Pearl Surprise Limited Edition Review

My girls are huge fans of the L.O.L dolls. They've been collecting them on and off since they were first released and with such a huge range available I don't think they'll ever complete that collection. However they were one step closer when we were recently asked if we'd like to review the new L.O.L Surprise! Pearl Surprise.

This is a larger shimmering turquoise pearl which is filled with both rare and limited edition dolls and accessories and there's an added surprise element as you make your way through unboxing all of the layers.

Hello and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. Thank you again to everyone who continued to link up during the Easter holidays.

The girls and I all agreed that it was so nice making use of the library again these past couple of weeks that now the weather is starting to improve we're going to try and get down there after school at least once every two weeks.

My First Book of Quantum Physics April Book of the Month

If you're like me then you may be of the opinion that science can be a little on the boring side. Science writer and educator Sheddad Kaid-Salah aims to change that opinion for the younger generation with My First Book of Quantum Physics. And I tell you what my eldest daughter and I were so impressed that we chose it as my April book of the month.

What this book does is break down what a lot of us will call the techno-babble. It lets the reader in on the science beyond the atoms and quarks, explaining the subtle differences between waves and particles, and where they overlap, and much, much more!

Sunshine, Water Fights and Sandals #LittleLoves

I hope everyone has enjoyed as much sunshine as we have this week. Although maybe not quite as much seen as I ended up a tad burnt on a couple of days. Needless to say I have now stocked up on suncream for this year. There is just something about having the sun out that is an instant mood booster isn't there. I've found myself smiling a lot more and the stress that I've felt in recent weeks has decreased significantly too.

It's just typical that the sun graced is with its presence just as the kids went back to school after the Easter holidays. That would be sods law wouldn't it. Although my girls didn't seem to mind this because it meant that they could switch from their winter uniform to their summer one, well my youngest did anyway. My ten year old is apparently far too cool to wear summer dresses now and opted for changing her blouse for a polo top.

Of course with all this talk of warmer weather it seems inevitable that a lot of my #littleloves this week will have a a more summery vibe ....

Read

With the kids back at school I've actually had more opportunity to read some books of my own rather than just listening to the kids read their library books. The first book I read is actually a review you'll have to look out for on my blog in upcoming weeks. The Wrong Man is what I'd describe as a crime come romance novel that was somewhat unique and actually for being part of the crime genre, it actually stands up as a god holiday read.
