This Week - 31/03/2019

You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water

It's been a long week. Not because I've been busy - I haven't - but because my back has been in agony. The worst seems to be over now so here's to hoping that tomorrow morning I manage to get out of bed unaided!

On the blog I've been writing about My Favourite Dinosaurs, the new range of #SNAPSTAR dolls, MGA's old Novi Stars doll line, and a Mother's Day Gift Guide. Talking of Mother's Day, I got Marianna to answer a cute little questionnaire I found on Pinterest. You can read her answers HERE.

Free Magazine Scans

Click the pictures below to find full cover guides to various teen magazines (primarily collated to make scale miniature magazine covers but I figure they'll also be useful for collectors and anyone into media history) and scans from my own magazine collection. I've also got a couple of kids' books I didn't want to part with - The Squirrel and Little Owl Book of Pets .

Fabric samples are a great way to avoid costly mistakes, as well as providing a fab source of material for your crafts box.

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
