Telling Tales With Rory’s Story Cubes

Our children have the most amazing imaginations and take great pleasure in sitting and spending time dreaming up and writing stories. J, our eldest has even made a series of comics which he takes great pride in writing and illustrating.

We were recently sent a pack of Rory’s Story Cubes to rate, review and to share on this here blog as part of the Bloggers Board Game Club. I’d never come across Story Cubes prior to receiving these, neither for that matter had my children. Twenty-four hours and many stories later my children are head over heels with Rory’s Story Cubes.…

Know Your Place

I’ve lived in and around this area for the vast majority of my life. It’s such a beautiful place in which to live but there’s an awful lot of downsides to rural life.

I may have spent time living the city life but I chose to return home as I couldn’t cope with the hustle and bustle, that and the fact I was struggling with terrible home-sickness.

Gosh, it’s so lovely to finally get back into the swing of blogging again. I’ve still got a fair amount of posts, reviews and other things to catch up with but there’s no rush. I’m no longer putting any pressure on myself to do anything, I plan to take life one step at a time and to enjoy the here and the now as much as I possibly can.

Belly Dancing

#MySundayPhoto – Happy Fathers Day

With it being Fathers Day I thought that I’d steer clear of the ‘stereotypical scenic shot’ and instead I decided to share this rather summery snap of my husband Paul. My husband is the most amazing Father, whilst the kids refer to him as ‘Daddy’ I’m fairly sure that his actual title should be ‘Superhero’.

There is no job too big and no job too difficult for Paul when it comes to his Daddy duties. Ever since day one when I first found out that I was expecting our beautiful boy J, Paul has been there by my side sharing in the good, the bad, the ugly and the amazing and together as parents we are a pretty darn good team.…
