Book Review || Captain Pug - The Dog Who Sailed The Seas

Pug is going on a seafaring adventure.
He's had jam tarts for breakfast.
He's wearing a smart sailor suit.
There's just one problem.
Pug is afraid of the water!

Written by Laura James worked on projects including Veronica Guerin and Slumdog Millionaire before signing herself up for Bath Spa's MA in Writing for Young People. Her love of all things nautical comes from her dad, a retired naval officer, and the adventures of Pug are based on the antics of her own very silly dog, Brian. Laura lives in Bath.

Illustrated by Églantine Ceulemans works in an intuitive way combining humour and sensitivity. She has been published in France but this is Eg's first book with Bloomsbury. Eg lives in Lyon, France.

Noah has a thing for Pugs ever since learning his favourite YouTuber has two, so when Captain Pug turned up he was keen to get reading.

Pug and his freckled companion Lady Miranda live at No 10 The Crescent.
They have a lovely lady named Wendy who does everything inside the house, like bring them yummy jam tarts for breakfast, and two running footmen Liam and Will who do everything for them outside of No 10 The Crescent.

Lady Miranda and Pug set off to a birthday party on the boating lake, Pug dressed to the nines in a snazzy Captains outfit.

Things take an unexpected turn once they arrive.
Will Pug earn his Captain title?
Will Lady Miranda ever find her Puggykins?
Will Pug ever over come his fear of the water? 

Noah really enjoyed reading Captain Pug, it only took him a few days to read it to me.
It was a nice and easy read, he needed no extra help from myself and if I wasn't around, he'd happily read on so he could find out what was going to happen.

A sure sign a story is awesome - Finding it too hard to put the book down.

He has already told me he wants to buy the next book - Cowboy Pug which is out in January 2017!!

Noah gives Captain Pug 10/10 and a double thumbs up.

You can buy a copy from Amazon for only £5.99

**I was sent 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…
