Photo Friday

As a fair few of my readers are friends and family I have opted to do a photo Friday so that you can see some of our photos. I take so many, mostly to use for my blog however a fair few of them are taken with a camera on my phone so are not good enough quality. Here are some of the photos that I have taken, these photos show a glimpse into our days in the Mum! That’s me household. Emily just loves dressing up. Those that know us well will know that Emily loves painting These rides always attract Emily’s attention from a distance. Emily and I perfect being silly together – some would say were two pee’s in a pod. Emily loves to help out around the house Emily also has a very serious side to her personality – here she is seriously concentrating on Peppa Pig!… View Post

We love Peppa Pig

We love Peppa Pig. For the uninitiated Peppa is an animated cartoon pig who lives with her Mum and Dad (Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig) and her little brother George. Her best friend is Suzy Sheep. I’m not sure when we first became acquainted with her… like many of these things it happens by osmosis without really trying. I accept that (as with all TV children’s characters) she’s a merchandising phenomenon with her image on everything from back-packs to duvet covers and even now a theme park in Hampshire, which we visited when E was younger. Despite this we do love the simplicity of the shows and the fact that there’s often as much for the parents as the kids. Apparently all of the frames are hand drawn rather than computer animated. There has been many articles in the press about people complaining about this bossy pink pig, claiming that… View Post
