World Book Day

World Book Day

It's World Book Day! I remember getting a book token to mark the very first one, many years ago - you can read more about that in my WBD post from last year. Marianna is still too young for the all singing, all dancing event it has become, but we did get to commemorate WBD 2016 in a very special way...

You can read or download the full book HERE and HERE.

Adjustamatic Adjustable Beds contacted me and asked if I'd like to be involved with a bloggers' ebook project. Each contributor wrote a little bit about their child's favourite #BedtimeStories, which was then compiled into a gorgeous little ebook with the most adorable illustrations.

Reading with your children is so important - not just for the educational benefits, but for the quality time you get to spend together and the memories you create. Our choice was Five Little Kittens by A.J. Macgregor and W. Perring, part of the Ladybird 401 (animal rhymes) series. How cute is our page:

Don't forget to share your own favourite #BedtimeStories with Adjustamatic on Facebook or @AdjustableBedUK on Twitter!

  4. I used to love World Book Day in school! I remember dressing up as my favourite characters and getting so excited for my book token! It's crazy to think how much technology has changed because eBooks weren't a thing back then. Great post!

  7. I'm so happy my daughters both enjoy reading. My son is 4 so he can't read yet and he's not overly interested in books at the moment. Each child is different, so I'll imagine he'll get more into it. #FabFridayPost

    1. My daughter's favourite thing about it is turning the pages at the moment, she doesn't much like waiting for me to do the actual reading!

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
