11 things about Christmas

The girls were playing a Christmas game last night.  It involved Eliza being Father Christmas and Tilly being a reindeer.  She was, in fact, Daisy the Black Nosed Reindeer.  Of course she was.  They were both cantering about on an empty wrapping paper roll singing jingle bells.  I think it’s fair to say they have [...]

Hallmark Story Buddy “Cooper” Review

My girls love a story.  We’ve read to them from a very early age, in fact I was reading them “Peepo” when they were about 6 months old because the rhythm of the verse was quite soporific. As such they are story addicts. We negotiate most nights about the amount of stories they can have. [...]

She was revving up and I tried various distractions that all failed. But I remained calm. “Goodness me I nearly forgot to tell you about [...]

Making it up as I go along…

It started a week or so ago when I simply couldn’t bear to read another Charlie & Lola or Fireman Sam story and she’d gone off all the ones I like (well she’d gone off Farmer Duck which is my favourite). So as any guilt induced Mummy would do I made up a story for [...]
