Book Review || Fred 'N' Friends - A Woodland Adventure

Fred is a sausage dog, long and lean, He trips people up, he's not easily seen.

Written by a mother and daughter team Angela & Stephanie O'Donnell, who have taken inspiration from their very own pets, Fred and Carrot.
They are constantly seen striding around the Great British Countryside seeking new and innovative ideas to join their wonderful book series.

Illustrations are by Timm Joy

We were very kindly sent a copy of 'Fred 'N' Friends A Woodland Adventure' the first book in the series to read and review.

Join Fred on his adventure in the exciting world of the woods and find out what happens when his owners aren't there! Just who is the Woodland Boss and why did he trample Mouse's house?!?!

The twins loved it straight away as the illustration of little Fred made them giggle, they also said he looked like a small Ray (our dog).

It was an easy read and it flowed nicely, it kept the boys interested and the illustrations caught their eyes.
They were wanting the pages to turn quicker so they could find out what was happening.

Once Fred's owners have gone off to work, he goes and meets his friend Bear and heads off into the woods, along their stroll they keep bumping into distressed little animals. Who keep telling them the Woodland Boss.
So on they go trying to discover who this Woodland Boss is.......

We kept trying to guess but we each had a different answer. 
The book doesn't actually tell you, it just leaves it up to you to decide.

Which is good because it brings up conversations about the book once you have finished reading. Having the kids ask questions and saying who or what they think is a great way to engage with them and shows you that they were actually listening.

The boys loved the book so much, I'll probably end up buying more the rest of the series.

If the boys sit still and hardly make a sound it's always is a sure sign they love the book.

The other books in the series are;
Fred 'N' Friends - A Seaside Adventure

**we were sent a copy of the book for free in return for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
