A good book.

It’s autumn, it’s lashing down with rain outside. Curl up with a good book and get lost somewhere.

A book, a cat and a story.

Both Millie and Evie read to themselves these days, Evie is following her sister and sneaks up to her room on a regular basis to borrow and replace her books.
I am read to by Gruff these days, I have insisted that I get to read a story too so we both benefit, (and the cat does too of course).

Romans go home.

Evie has a set of story books based in Roman times. I think they’re quite realistic. She says she loves reading them. As long as I don’t get any requests for a pet lion I’ll be happy…




Story time.

This is a tricky business these days as everyone wants a go at reading the story!

Books can give you ideas.

Gruff has taken that one literally…
books are useful

Libraries gave us power…

…robot power. Great picking books when you’re five and obsessed with robot graphic novels.

What no story?

Evie’s mastering silent reading much to the annoyance of Gruff!

… another book out today, it’s called My Daddy Says.
It follows the first book My Mummy Says. I hope you like it.
Hopefully I’ll have some very exciting news to share tomorrow concerning Matilda and her eggs, keep your fingers crossed as we’ve had a hair raising day!

At the top of the garden.

At the top of the garden there is a chair leaning against the garage doors.
Normally Millie can be found there, knee deep in a good book amongst the dandelions.
Sometimes though, Millie’s books decide someone else should read them…

A story shared…

…is a story loved and remembered for always.
Read to your kids, it’s bloody great!
Happy world book day.

My mummy…

…has been very busy and illustrated this fab book written by Justine Smith, published today.
I’m super proud of it and the little girl who always loved to draw stories is very happy she kept hold of her dream for so many years.
Back to more drawings tomorrow I promise!

Reading my book.

Ah I have another little book worm.

Learning to read.

and quite enjoying it.

We love our library!

We love our library. It”s not huge but the kids love it.

I’ve brought all of my kids here from when they were babies. Books are wonderful things and stories are often best read aloud, (even if it does annoy the man sat next to us on the computer).

Here’s to stories!
