This Weeks My Sunday Photo is from St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. Wednesday was a gorgeous hot sunny day so my sisters and their friends decided to take a trip over to the mount.
I unfortunately stayed at home with baby girl as I think it would have been too much for her with how hot it was. Plus they had to go over by boat as the tide was in.
We were asked recently to try out the Little Angels nappies from Asda. Since baby girl was born 5 months ago we have tried out numerous brands of nappies. From expensive Pampers to the budget Aldi nappy. I love to see how they work and if they keep her dry and comfortable over night. Now baby girl sleeps through the night I need to make sure the nappies keep her skin dry while she sleeps for 8-10 hours.
We tested the size 3 Supreme Protection nappies from the Little Angels range for 1 week.
This is the first children’s novel by Denise Erguler. I love to help out new authors on my blog and after reading the blurb for The Adventures of Shifting Jack I knew I wanted to help Denise get her book ‘out there’.
Unfortunately when I was writing this review there were no images for me to show you. So you have ended up with just a generic image of books I’m afraid. But I have to say it is a pretty photo!
The author Denise Erguler moved to North Cyprus 10 years ago from London. She lives with her husband, Olkan, and two children, Ayla age 7 and Adil, age 10 and The Adventures of Shifting Jack is her first children’s book.
Last year I read one of the best books for a long time and it was called The Ice Twins. I love stories about twins so this one was perfect. After I finished it I did think how on earth is the author S.K. Tremayne going to better her first book?
Well I don’t know how she did it but I’m afraid The Fire Child tops The Ice Twins. The Fire Child is a chilling psychological thriller set in Cornwall – My Home!
I am being a bit biased about Cornwall but it’s the most creepiest setting for this type of thriller and she has chosen well for a location. I loved reading through the book paying special attention to the place names. Every so often I would shout out- I’ve been there!
The Fire child gave me more of that personal touch than most books do due to it being set very close to home.
When my husband was a child he used to love going to Blackpool and now we have a baby hopefully we will be able to and visit there soon so he can share his experiences with her.
When Visit Blackpool asked me if they could write a guest post for my blog on how to plan a baby friendly trip to Blackpool I thought it would be a great idea, especially with the Summer Holidays coming up. So here it is below. I hope you enjoy reading it and it gives you some pointers at what to do in Blackpool
Planning a baby-friendly day out in Blackpool is easy. Honestly, there’s so much to do there. It’s a fun-packed destination that the whole family can enjoy – from the acclaimed beaches to meeting all the animals at Blackpool Zoo, here are some things that you and your young ones will love.
There are over 1,500 animals at Blackpool Zoo and loads of different activities to try out. Park the pram by an enclosure and watch the flamingos, zebras, meerkats and giraffes graze, while the kids look on in awe with their imaginations running wild.
It’s a fabulous day out with brilliant animals and loads of places to take a seat to enjoy some lunch, but keep a lookout on the free-roaming cheeky monkeys!
I was offered the chance to review the fantastic app from Kidloland which is aimed at ages 0-5 years old. I had never heard of KidloLand before so was very interested in what their app could offer a 5 month old.
My initial questions were:
- Would it be too old for a 5 month old?
- Are there lots of activities to do?
- Would it keep an older child occupied?
- What was the quality of the images like?
- Do you get your monies worth?
So the app was easily to download from the app store onto my iPhone. I was eager to see what the app was about.
