5 Ways To Make Your Home Cosy This Winter

As Autumn leaves us, Winter is coming (sorry I had to put that I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan!) and it’s time to get your home cosy for Winter. Winter is such a fabulous time of the year. You have crisp cold mornings and dark cosy evenings. Perfect for snuggling up by the fire with a good book and a hot chocolate.

Of course Winter also means Christmas. For us this is family time, when my older sister comes over from Canada and we have huge get togethers. Eating lots of food, playing silly games and having a laugh. That’s what it’s all about.

I have come up with 5 ways to make your home cosy this Winter, and to help you get ahead before the Christmas plans come into place.

Blog Tour – Trust Me by Zosia Wand

Hello and welcome back to my stop on the blog tour for Trust Me by Zosia Wand. I have been catching up with my reading lately after being ill (that will be for another time!), and I’m glad that by reading Trust Me has picked up my spirits and gave me that love of reading back.

Before we come to my review, I want to tell you a little bit about Trust Me.

Blog Tour – The Stories She Tells by LK Chapman

Here is an extract from The Stories She Tells by LK Chapman

The Stories She Tells

One

‘Not again,’ Sadie said, ‘please, not again.’ Michael looked down at the pregnancy test in her hand, and saw that it was negative. He sat down beside her on the bathroom floor, and put his arm around her awkwardly. ‘Sadie…’ he said. ‘No!’ she shouted, the suddenness and loudness of her voice taking him aback. She shoved his arm away. ‘No,’ she said again quietly. Michael gave up. He knew how desperate she was for a baby and never had a clue what to say when she got a negative result. When he tried to talk to her he usually ended up putting his foot in it and making things worse. Sadie put the test down on the floor and rested her forehead on her knees, her hair falling forward and brushing her bare legs. It was six-thirty in the morning and she’d done the test the second she got up, so she was still wearing a baggy old t-shirt of his that she wore in bed. When she’d called him into the bathroom to wait for the result she’d looked glazed with sleep.

My First Scalextric Review

We were chuffed to bits to be asked to try out the new My First Scalextric. For years and years I’ve always been a fan of Scalextric sets. They are great fun for all the family.

Baby girl is at that inquisitive stage and loves to explore. When she first saw the box she wanted to get in it! Then of course she decided to stand on the box, it will support the weight of a 20 month old!

The box is brightly coloured and is perfectly designed for preschoolers.
