W is for …. Writing

The past couple of weeks both my 4 year old and 6 year old have been learning to write in cursive.

I have to admit I haven't joined up my writing in a long time so to help my children learn how to do has felt like I've been back at school myself.

So this weeks alphabet project photo is showcasing my daugher's writing efforts.

Read With Me #42

Hello. Welcome to this weeks Read With Me, the linky where you kind find all sorts of book/reading related posts.

I read a lot of books, on average I read 3 books a week, all of them good but not always ones that I would necessarily recommend.

Last week I think I found my book of the year, Gravity written by L.D. Cedergreen.

I can't say too much as there is a huge twist which I wouldn't want to spoil for any of you.

Just know that it is book filled with, love, passion and second chances.

Tissues will be needed, I was crying buckets but I think that is a sign of a truly good book, one that penetrates your emotions!!

Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake by Sue Watson Review

I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Su Watson's latest book to review, Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake.

Now I admit I was extremely excited about this having read one of her previous books which I absolutely adored.

For Tamsin Angel, Christmas is always the biggest and best… chic parties and a little showbiz sparkle are a must. This year though, things aren't going quite as planned…

With baliffs suddenly at the door and her husband nowhere to be found, it looks like Christmas just got downsized. Moving into her sister's one bedroom flat, she wonders whether things will ever be the same again.

After losing her husband on Christmas Eve, Same Angel has rebuilt her life around her son Jacob and her new business - The White Angel Bakery. She's also found herself a very handsome, loving boyfriend, but is struggling to let go of the past.

Thrown together with a sprinkle of Christmas magic, Sam and Tmasin might just learn a littlemore about each other- and themselves. But when disaster strikes at the bakery, will they be able to save the say in time for Chrismas?

Project 365 Days 285 - 291

How to sum up this week of project 365?

Wet, rainy, soggy, lots of puddles oh and did I mention wet?

I think it felt more like Winter than Autumn this week, well except for the fact the the temperatures were still quite warm, not ideal when you need to wear a coat in the rain but you end up sweating from the heat.

Apart from the weather I think we've had a good week.

Gracie, Freya and Elise have been in the golden book at school for various efforts. 

Layla has managed a whole week having dry nappies at night, so I'm thinking it may be time to take the plunge and get rid of nappies completely.

And we had a letter from our solicitor saying searches have been done, so we are now due to discuss contracts, a house of our very own is closer to reach!!

I think the positivity shines through in this weeks photos too….

Day 285

Got to love having a scrummy hot chocolate on a rainy lazy Sunday.

Autumnal Sensory Walk

Autumn is one of my favourite seasons. There are so many things to be seen and to be discovered. And what better way to explore than going on a sensory walk.

I Should Have Been On The GBBO

The Great British Bake Off may be over for this year but that doesn't stop the rest of us from baking. I personally think I should have been on the GBBO for amateurs.

Aldi recently set some of us lovely bloggers a bake off challenge of our own.

Using some Aldi's Home Baking SpecialBuys and core ingredients, I had to pick a recipe from one of the many used on the GBBO show this year, I opted for the Fruity Swedish Tea Ring which Richard cleverly made.

Now this isn't something I've made before and I'm not lucky enough to own a freestanding mixer or a proving bag for that matter but I gave it my best shot….
