A Lady Has the Floor Book Review

As the years have gone by there has been more and more talk of female rights, about equality and what it means to be a feminist but within all these conversations have you ever heard the name Belva Lockwood mentioned? I'll be honest I hadn't so I was more than intrigued when I was asked if I'd like to review A Lady Has the Floor, a book dedicated to this marvellous lady and all that she stood for throughout her lifetime.

Are women not worth the same as men? 

Tidying Up With the Casdon Deluxe Henry Hoover Cleaning Trolley

I don't know about anyone else's kids but mine aren't the biggest fans of tidying up. When I ask them to clean their rooms I get sighs all round and they think that pushing things to one side will give the illusion that everything is now clean. Us parents know better though don't we. Surprisingly though, my five year old isn't like her older sisters and she quite enjoys helping me clean so when I was sent the Cason Deluxe Henry Hoover Cleaning Trolley I just knew this would become her new favourite toy.

Would this mean that my dreams of having my own cleaner round the house were coming true?

Read With Me 2018 #20

Hello and welcome to this weeks Read With Me. A big thank you to everyone who linked up with last week.

I seem to have been leaning towards the crime/thriller genres this year instead of my normal YA novels. It's nice in a way as that is what my mum prefers to read which means I can talk to her a bit more about different books and of course pass over any paperbacks I might have.

My Sunday Photo 2018 #20

A couple of weekends ago we went out for a nice walk in the sunshine with one of the girls' aunties and their lovely dog. It turned out to be a bit of a muddy walk, it had me questioning my choice of footwear but it was still nice to get outdoors. 

We were wandering through the woods and happened to stumble across this pretty epic den, what a way to make the most of nature!

Celebrating #NationalSandwichWeek with Num Noms

Sandwiches, I love them. They are sort of my guilty pleasure, if I'm honest I spend quite a lot of time creating them and making them look just as nice as they taste. A few of my favourites are chicken, bacon and avocado and the best cheese toastie with strong cheese, avocado, bacon and my secret ingredient, brussels, that's right brussel sprouts! Now you may be thinking why am I chatting away about sandwiches and I'll tell you it's because it's National Sandwich Week!

For #NationalSandwichWeek (get spreading the hashtag), I've joined up Num Noms to bring you a pretty scrummy sandwich creation, courtesy of my children.
