Just the title of this kids book alone, it’s just called ‘Dave‘, would have been enough for me to buy it. The fact that it’s about a fat, farty cat that shares Husband’s name is just icing on the cake. I’ve tried hiding this one recently, as I think I’m up to reading it about […]


With Weasel’s uncle visiting, Husband had an excuse to take a Friday off and all head off to the cinema to see the Lego Movie. I’m pretty sure the three of us were looking forward to it more than Weasel was; she would have probably have preferred to go see the Tinker Bell film again […]
