The Week That Was – 6.42…

April 30th, 2014 · 4 Comments

And so we are in the midst of Autumn… Notice that I didn’t mention the W_nter word… we refuse to believe it exists… but the blankets have been creeping out of closets and the days are a lot shorter than they have been…

The season is definitely changing… You can expect lots and lots of cocoa ‘o clock photographs on our instagram feed…

And the Book of the Week

I confess, this is not from the library and we did not receive it for review purposes… I saw it. I loved it and I bought it!!! This is the ultimate book about every type of animal… The Visual Encyclopaedia of Life on Earth and we are loving it… All of us. It has been sitting on our coffee table for a week or two now and as folk come into the room they dip into it… it is indeed a dipper. Every time you peak inside there is a fresh page of facts. It is a DK book and so all about the incredible photographs, an amazing fact or two and then more and more stunning photographs… we are just totally loving it. Follow this link to take a peak inside.


And this is what the Hoods have been up too

Hood #1: Trumpeting and trumpeting and trumpeting…

    Love your picture with your children going to the library. I have only three and they lov going to the library. We walk there for about 2 km and then back. Right now we are still using a push chair. And we fill it with books. I mentioned your lovely library bags to my children trying to prepare them for the time when they are going to carry all the books bythemselves. The oldest has a question for you. How often do you go to the library. We usually go there once a week with the heeps of books. Have a wonderful weekend.
