The lovely Kate at Family Fever came up with a fab idea for a post a few weeks back. The idea is that you get to interview your child and see what they really think of you as their mummy. Below is what my 4 year old Gracie thinks of me :
Welcome to this weeks Read With Me. Ok where to start, well last week I recommended a set of books to you that I had read a while ago because the books I wanted to review, I hadn't quite finished yet, I know I'm normally so speedy. Well I'm pleased to say that I managed to finish them so I wanted to share my thoughts with you all.
I recently purchased a whole series of books as they were on offer and came highly recommended.
The Emi Lost and Found series consists of the following books :
Not Today, But Someday (prequel)
Lost and Found (book one)
Time Stands Still (book two)
Never Look Back (book three)
plus two bonus short stories.
Now I am glad that I have had the chance to read the series together as a whole, rather than reading them separately because I don't think I would have coped having to wait for each new book to be released. Not Today, But Someday was actually written after the first book had been released but I found it nice to be able to read them in order as the prequel really helped set up the main story and let you get to know more about the characters.
We are very lucky to have Dover Castle literally 5 minutes away from our home. We are also members of the English Heritage so after paying the initial membership, it means we can visit as many times as we like and it doesn't cost us a penny. It is one of those places that we just love exploring.
Our go to place whenever we take a trip up there is to the Medieval tunnels, the girls love sitting on the cannons whilst Daddy Hazelden tries to scare them as we walk further into the dark.
I was lucky enough to receive a selection of goodies from Cake Angels on Monday. This included icing, sprinkles, candles and marshmallows.
The question was just what was I going to bake? I had a look through my cupboard at the other ingredients that I had and I decided to make coconut and marshmallow muffins, adapting a recipe for muffins that I had made before.
You may remember last year that I was lucky enough to review the platinum service provided by Twinkl, the website that provides printable resources for teachers, schools, nurseries and parents alike. This week Twinkl are celebrating their 4th birthday and to get into the party spirit, they wanted to provide everyone with some fantastic fun and games, free resources and of course some amazing giveaways.
With over 114,000 resources on the site already and more being added all the time, you can see why Susie and Jonathon's creation receives millions of visitors every month.
