Carlton Books Champions League Fact File Giveaway

Football plays a huge part in our lives on a daily basis whether it's watching it on TV, playing a game on the consoles or just kicking a foam ball around our living room. When Carlton books sent us the Champions League Fact File book I knew big J would love it. Out of us all he is the one who knows the most about Football and likes to know the ins and outs of the Footballers not just in the UK but all over the world.

Signed Copy Of The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher Giveaway

Anyone who reads my blog or follows me on social media will know that I am a huge fan of McFly and have been since the beginning. Big J grew up listening to their music and now little J does too. Over the years I have followed them outside of McFly too. Whether it is watching Tom's You Tube videos, reading The Dinosaur That Pooped books to little J, McBusted and now Tom's latest venture The Christmasaurus.

What Have We Been Reading?

Little J probably has the biggest book collection out of us all. He loves books and has a story or two every night as well as looking at book throughout the day too. Big J was exactly the same at his age and still loves reading now.

Colours Colours Everywhere, Sleepless in Manhattan, I Love my Mummy

Last month we were sent three books, two for little J and one for me. I love reading too when I can find some alone time.

Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan Giveaway

I made a promise to myself that I will read more this year and so far I'm doing quite well. Being a Mummy I don't get lots of spare time but when I do I've been reading Sleepless in Manhattan by Sarah Morgan.

sleepless in manhattan by Sarah Morgan

 The title appealed to me straight away as my favourite movie is Sleepless in Seattle so I imagined lots of love and romance and so far it hasn't disappointed.

Thomas & Friends Personalised Christmas Book Review

 I have mentioned before that I love personalised gifts. I always find that personalisation adds 'that little bit more' to a gift idea. When I was younger I had a Snow White book and I was in it. My name, date of birth, friends etc had all been added to create a story. I loved that book so much and I still have it somewhere. When we were offered the chance to review a Thomas & Friends personalised book from Egmont I knew straight away that little J would love it. He loves books and starring in one makes it so much more fun.

Bedtime Stories Perfect For Halloween

When big J was younger he never went to sleep without a bedtime story. He would have his bath out on his pj's then hop into bed with his chosen book. Daddy and I loved reading to him before bed and we would fight over who got to read him his book that night.


We were hoping little J would also love stories and I am so happy to say that at the age of 30 months he now wants a story before bed. We have started a little collection of books to start with but just like his brother he wants the same ones every night.

My Stinky New School Giveaway

September is a hard month for most parents because it's the start of a new school year. Whether your child is starting a new nursery, school or even just moving up a year it can be tough. I always remember preparing big J for nursery and also preparing myself because my little boy wouldn't be with me anymore.

We talked about it and also read books that were designed to help our children understand that starting school is a good thing and they will make lots of friends.


We have been reading My Stinky New School by Rebecca Elliott and it would be a perfect read for those who have children who are a little unsure about what a new school will bring.

An Evening With Giovanna Fletcher

Last night I attended an evening with Giovanna Fletcher at Waterstones. I have never been to anything like this before because if I am being honest I am not a big reader. I do like reading but I always have something else to do so although I have lots of books, they just sit there gathering dust. So I assume you are wondering why I went to a book event then if I'm not really a book lover. The truth is I do like Giovanna's books and have all four of them but I actually like her as a person too. I know that might sound crazy as I have never met her (until last night) but I follow her on you tube and I really enjoy watching her vlogs.

Our January Monthly Review Round Up

So January has come to an end and I am looking forward to February. I love February because its only a short month, the children have half term and its the month of love with Valentines Day on the 14th. 
I managed to read a book this month which I am shocked about really because over the last few months I just haven't had the time to do anything for myself really.

The Dinosaur That Pooped

Its pretty obvious from past posts that I am a huge Mcfly/Busted/McBusted fan. As well as amazing singers, song writers and musicians, Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter have put pen to paper and created a trio of children's books featuring a Dinosaur that likes to poop. The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas, The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet and The Dinosaur That Pooped The Past all feature rhyming text, colourful illustrations, great fun and yes, a great big pooping dinosaur.
  


There is quite an age gap between my two monkeys so I decided to read to both of them and yes as you probably guessed it my 12 year old was grinning from ear to ear throughout all three books. Why is it boys just love toilet humour? Little J loved looking at the pictures and sat for the whole story which he hasn't done before.
 
I have to admit I did find them quite funny myself and particularly liked the pooped a planet story. 
The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas
 
When Danny asks for too many presents, Father Christmas decides that Danny deserves a huge dinosaur. The Dinosaur is very, very big and very, very hungry and eats up all of Christmas and you guessed it what goes in must come out.
 
The Dinosaur That Pooped a Planet
 
Danny and his dinosaur are back and this time they are going on an adventure into space. Unfortunately Danny forgets his very hungry dinosaurs lunchbox. Dinosaur starts to eat everything in sight including the rocket to get them home.
 
The Dinosaur That Pooped The Past
   
Danny and his Dinosaur are sent back in time in their third adventure. Dinosaur gets to meet new friends and all is well until there is a huge volcano about to erupt. How will they get back to the future?
 
Lots of fun for children of all ages and adults too.

How To Catch A Star 10th Anniversary Giveaway

I cannot believe it's been 10 years since 'How to Catch a Star' was first published. Written by Oliver Jeffers this book tells us about a young boys attempt to catch a star.

We were so lucky to be able to get this special 10th anniversary edition before it's official release on 27th March 2014

It arrived in a beautiful presentation box along with some goodies for big J and little J to enjoy.
