Paper Dolls

The Little Miss loves the book called Paper Dolls by Julia Donaldson.

Today she was desperate for me to make her some paper dolls like in the book which she then decorated.

The Advent books are out again and I think they kids are going to enjoy it even more this year as they love books.

2016 Project366 (Day 275)

I Am PilgrimI started this book whilst in Greece and I could not put it down!

It is a thriller and one of the best written books I have read for a while. The story-line is about international terrorism and Muslim extremists as well as biological warfare.

Whilst is may be fiction it is plausible enough to be real which meant I regularly shuddered whilst reading it!

Great read if you like this genre of fiction.

2015 Project365 (Day 301)

Northern YouthWe are starting to clear out our offices at work ready for a big move to the new build at the hospital.

I have no idea how long CDAT has lived in this building, 20 years maybe?, but it certainly feels like it.

There are loads of books that I am sure would have been very forward thinking in their time but now they are just archaic.

This one made me laugh. I think it was printed in 1967. I think I know a few of those dodgy drinking Northern young people.

2014 Project365 (Day 335)

TAdvent Bookshis is our Advent book box; 24 Christmas books wrapped up and ready for The Little Mister to open one each day and read before bedtime.

We love books and The Little Mister is also a fan. He really enjoys sitting and reading with his Daddy before bedtime and he has his favourites, especially The Gruffalo and other Julia Donaldson books.

He may still be a bit small to fully enjoy his Advent books but I hope it may be one of our new Christmas traditions.

2014 Project365 (Day 286)

The Snail and the Whale

The Snail and the Whale is currently The Little Mister’s favourite book. It is written by Julia Donaldson who also wrote The Gruffalo.

The Mister has read this so many times that he can now recite or word for word. For some reason The Little Mister calls snails ‘nannies’ which always make me smile. We still have no idea why he calls them this though!

2014 Project365 (Day 62)

BookwormsThis is a bit of an emergency snap.

I am completely knackered with a sore throat, headache and chills. I am heading to bed any minute.

So, a quick pic of one of the things I gave to The Mister for Christmas. It seemed to sum him up quite nicely.

Goodnight TeddyMy father-in-law bought The Little Mister this wonderful cloth book called Goodnight Teddy.

He and his Daddy read it most nights before he goes to bed and The Little Mister ‘helps’ the toy teddy drink his milk and then tucks him up in bed. So cute!

2014 Project365 (Day 6)

The Junior BookwormThe Little Mister loved his books! Very often he is to be found pulling out his books from the shelf under the TV and then reading through them. He loves the books with flaps and touchy feely bits. I love watching the concentration on his face when he is exploring these things!

It has been a busy day. Back to work, back to the childminder and tonight I was back to choir. It’s all go and I am tired!

2013 Project365 (Day 272)

Fluffy kitten tummy!Over the last couple of weeks The Little Mister has just started getting properly interested in books. His Daddy loved reading and books are one of his favourite things in the world! It seems that The Little Mister is sharing his interest.

He particularly loves the ‘That’s Not My…’ books and he turns the pages really rapidly and strokes the fluffy and rough bits. It is so sweet!

He truly is the most amazing distraction to have at the moment!
