Review: Life’s Little Bugs

*Gifted Products

As soon as I heard of the concept of the Life’s Little Bugs books I just knew they were right up our street and was over the moon when Tina, the author, asked me to review a set. She has brought together education with fun rhyming stories to teach children the importance of looking after themselves, one another and the environment.

Review: Room on the Broom

*Gifted Tickets

When I heard that the ‘Room on the Broom’ production was coming to The Haymarket Theatre in Basingstoke, I just knew we had to go and see it. Julia Donaldson’s books have become a popular choice in our house along with the films, so to be able to see one brought to life on the stage I thought it was the perfect first show for Jake to attend.

A Look Back Over My First Year Writing and Blogging

Here we are, a few days away from 2017 and it has made me realise that my book has almost been out for an entire year. Looking back to this time last year I remember trying to get it completed and was tackling the layout as a novice and imagining how I would simply be able to self-publish on Amazon and sit back and enjoy the reward of the sales… oh the naivety!
