Author Guest Post – Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups

Today on the blog I have a guest post from the lovely Andrew Joyce. You may remember his guest post from last year on what it takes to properly research a book before writing. This time Andrew shares with us one of his short stories from his latest book.

Over to you Andrew…

What you are about to read is one of the stories from my book, Bedtime Stories for Grown-Ups, a collection of short stories that are a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. My hitching adventures are true. The Danny narratives are also true, but written from a perspective different from mine. The fiction stories are a jumble of genres.

There are a whole lotta stories in the book—700 pages worth. Enough to keep you reading for the foreseeable future.

PJ Masks: Time to be a Hero DVD – Review

Ever since baby girl could lift her head, PJ Masks has been one of her favourite cartoons. Now she starts dancing to the theme tune and tries to sing along, it’s so cute to watch!

When we were asked to review the new PJ Masks: Time to be a Hero DVD I think I was just as excited as she was. I do find myself humming along to the tune at various times of the day.

Shnooks Review – From Bubble to Best Friend!

I have seen the Shnooks advert on TV for a few weeks now. I wondered how on earth can they grow to 8x in size? Well when we got the chance to review the Shnooks I was eager to find out.

They are so adorable and has brought the big kid out in me. Baby girl is loving them! She keeps brushing their hair with the cute little comb that arrived with them.

Planning a Nursery for a New Arrival

I remember planning a nursery for baby girl, in our old house. Now baby number 2 is on the way and we are in a new house I’m going to start all over again. It’s a little too soon to find out what we are having, but it would be easier if it’s a girl due to all the girly stuff we have already.

Here is another one of my mood boards to give some ideas of what’s needed in a nursery.
