Netflix is really popular at the moment with all the family, least of all baby girl who has become attached to Luna Petunia. If you don’t know who Luna Petunia is she is a fun loving girl who enters a dreamland called Amazia through her magic toy chest to a world where adventures, learning and friendships await her. She makes the impossible possible with the help of her friends in the toy chest.

Blogging Everything They Don’t Tell You

Blogging Everything They Don’t Tell You:

Blogging seems to be lurking at every corner these days, with at least one or two people you know spouting knowledge about health, sharing recipes or traveling around the world. Eventually, you might be tempted to start your own blog and to see what the world of blogging has to offer. But before you do, let’s talk through some of the things no one tells you when you start blogging.

Income and Stats Report For August 2017

Well August was over pretty darn fast wasn’t it? Here we are at the start of September, one of my favourite months. Plus it’s only 16 weeks until Christmas!!!

August was a pretty good month for me income wise. I have read that a lot of bloggers find the Summer months slower and I can honestly say I didn’t find this the case for me.

I have been busy planning my Halloween posts for October and also planning what I intend to do with my Christmas Gift Guide this year. Last year I did a kid’s and a women’s and found it a lot of hard work. This year I’m just planning the kid’s gift guide and I have to say I have some lovely bits already to review ready to go in.

TIP: You can never plan too early so get those request’s out!

Book Review: Right Handed Lefty by Ryan Coughlin

Over this past weekend I’ve been reading Right Handed Lefty by Ryan Coughlin. It is the type of coming of age book that brings back memories of that 80’s film Stand By Me.

Right Handed Lefty by Ryan Coughlin

 

Book Description

We all have baggage. Real friends help you carry it.

It’s 1983 in Boscobel, Wisconsin, in the southwestern corner of the state, known as the Driftless Area. Ellis Sayre is different. He’s a twelve year old orphaned Native American. His adoptive parents lost a son a few years ago and welcomed him to deal with their grief. While stealing day-old bread for a friend in need, Ellis and his two best friends—George and Mason—witness a murder by a local kingpin.

Authorities disagree with their story. They call it made up. The boys are trapped, worried for their lives, sending them on a flight to Grandad’s Bluff in La Crosse, WI, along the Mississippi River. Two peripheral stories about Ellis Abbot—a World War II veteran, and Two Right Feet—an orphaned Native American during early 1800’s, are entwined to unearth Ellis Sayre’s roots.

They combine to tell the truth.
