A hilarious story book

My little ones at my local library Storytime club loved this book ! It is a real pleasure to run the sessions for my group of 4-6 year olds – reading stories and singing songs. Not sure who enjoys it more – me or them ??


And this book is made even better when you learn who the author, Tom Fletcher actually is !! He is a musician I have seen on the telly, without knowing who he was, obviously. Just found this adorable video of his son singing one of my favourite songs, with a cameo of the guy himself. Adorable !! Of course, families with three boys – always got to be a hit with me !!

A rose by any other name …

This photographing the flowers in my garden is beginning to take on an obsessional form !! DSC_0100.JPG

This is a rose I bought for myself about five years ago and I call it my Raspberry Ripple rose. Maybe you will remember raspberry ripple ice-cream, which was always my favourite. Love the colours in this rose and the gentle unfurling of the petals.
