Get Active for your Family
Fitness has always been in my blood. I have always enjoyed running and playing. My mum has often said how active my brother and I were. Poor Mum! This all led me down an exercise path which I have loved. I did the, ‘2 workouts a day for 5 days a week’ at university and I have played many sports - I always loved the pre-season training. In recent years I have also done the, "I am so tired of this child no sleeping, GIVE ME CAKE." After a few years of low energy and feeling ti

The little girl and the lion...
I love a book that can help teach children something and this book has a great moral. We were kindly gifted 'The little girl and the lion' by author Matt Bacon and have enjoyed reading it with ZaZa. It is a light-hearted, short rhyming book about a young girl and her clumsy lion friend with an underlying message that you should not take your friends for granted. The illustrations are sweet, happy and colourful, bringing the book to life. The rhyming makes it an easy read an

Violet and Bruce...
We were kindly gifted 'The Adventures of Violet and Bruce, Destroying the Noise Machine' to review which we have enjoyed reading a number of times together. It is a light-hearted fun book about a little girl and her pet sausage dog who are on a mission to defeat the noisy vacuum. Each page has fun and engaging illustrations for little ones and there is a catchy rhythm to the story. A lot of children have a special relationship with their pet dog and you can see that this is

Our Baby Boy...
Hello! It has been a little while since I wrote a blog...more than a little while actually! We welcomed a little boy to our family in April and we've been enjoying some time as a family of four. I'm hoping I'll be on here a little more frequently now but obviously aside from spending time with my little ones, my main priority is making sure you all get your Storyboxes! I can't believe our little boy is 5 months already - he has just had his first holiday, his first tooth has
