Dreaming of Christmas by T.A. Williams Blog Tour

It may only be the middle of November but if you are anything like me then you will have been thinking about Christmas for a while. I'll admit to watching my first festive film of the year way back in September. Now the other way to inject yourself with some of xmas spirit is to read something with at least a hint of that magical time of year and T.A. Williams latest novel Dreaming of Christmas does just that.

It’s the dream Christmas: snow, mountains… and, er, an ex-boyfriend. But can Zoe still find love in the Alps?

Dumped on Christmas Eve by her long-term boyfriend, it's been a rough year for Zoe Lumsley. But then she gets an invitation she can’t refuse: an all expenses paid skiing holiday with old university friends.

The bad news: her ex, Grant, will be there with his new girlfriend. But so will her former flatmate Billy, the organiser, and in the meantime he’s done rather well for himself. As Christmas in the Alps approaches, it'll be great to see the old gang. Some more than others...

Prepare yourself for a the perfect Christmas getaway ...

Poopsie Surprise Unicorn Toy Review

There's two things that have been extremely popular with my children this year, unicorns and slime. So of course when I was asked if I would like to review the new Poopsie Unicorn Surprise toy, well I knew I'd be a popular mum in that moment. The question being would this combination work?

My Sunday Photo 2018 #45

I took this photograph about two weeks ago because I honestly couldn't believe just how green the trees still were at this time of year as the days get colder and darker.

Haircuts, Heating and Birthday Preparations #weeklyroundup

With November in full swing and Bonfire night done and dusted, it's time for me to start thinking about other events. Of course Christmas is at the front of my mind but before that I have birthday preparations. My eldest daughter will be turning thirteen at the end of this month, I'm not entirely sure how that's possible seen as it doesn't feel like five minutes ago that I was actually giving birth to her!

I've already bought and wrapped the majority of her presents because this year she's requested some presents and some money which I get as she likes to pick out her own things nowadays. And now it's on to thinking about her birthday cake because this year she's requested a cake in the shape of a llama, nothing too difficult, starts scrolling through Pinterest for ideas.

What has also turned up is the wetter weather and the colder temperatures and I'll admit, I finally gave in this week and put the heating on. The extra jumpers and blankets just weren't doing the trick anymore.

But now for what you've really come to read, my #weeklyroundup

Read

My reading has slowed down a little with kids being back at school, me being back at work and the reading and homework slowly starting to build again. But I did manage to read a couple of books. 

One was from Netgalley, called The Stranger Diaries. This would have been perfect for people to read over Halloween but I'm sure it will still manage to come across as a tad spooky even now.
