Book Review: The Fire Child by S.K. Tremayne

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.

How to plan a baby-friendly trip to Blackpool

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.

Blackpool Zoo

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!

KidloLand App Review and Giveaway

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.

My Sunday Photo 03/07/2016

I know I have posted similar photos to this one but I just love the view over Malpas River in Truro. We were sitting in the car after arriving a few minutes early on Friday for our baby sensory class and in between the rain clouds the blue sky peeked through. The tide was practically out so it’s mainly mud you can see.
Not a bad view for a carpark!

Happy Sunday!

June Roundup and July Bucket List

It’s that time of the month again for the June Roundup and July Bucket list combined. As you know from last months post that I’m combining the two together. I love to look back over my month of blogging and also my day to day life and incorporate what I need to do into my bucket list.
I suppose the way of looking at it is what do I want to achieve in July aand how can I improve on June?
