A Book Called Dave

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 […]

Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs at the Southbank Centre

A Londoner-friend had texted me a photo of the Les Enfants Terribles production of Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs a few weeks back after she’d seen photos of us going in fancy dress to Roo over at London with a Toddler’s birthday party based on the books. Although it sounded amazing, and is one […]

Jack and the Flumflum Tree

My Very First Book of Colours – A Bit Uninspiring

Ok, so we have had My Very First Book of Colours for a while, but for some reason it’s making a reappearance in our top 10 requested books in this house. By Eric Carle, the same dude who wrote the much more popular The Very Hungry Caterpillar, I was expecting a little more from it […]

Weaselus Bratifius! Taking the Weasel to Warner Brothers Studios Harry Potter Tour

I really, really wanted to go on the Harry Potter set at Warner Brothers’ Studios near Watford, but for once I was a little worried about what Weasel might think. Normally I wouldn’t care – she’d enjoy herself with some random set of steps or jumping on paving slabs as per usual. But with the […]
