I heart my pet – Freya 10

It would be hard for regular blog readers to have not realised I adore my woofer. She was a rescue from Dogs Trust, she had been stray and severely underweight. She fitted in here so fast, and although we have only been in her life since October she is now utterly irreplaceable. She loves attention, and being a nuisance to the neighbours cats, and running on the muddy field, and (weirdly) the vets. Most dogs dislike posties and vets, not Freya – she hugs them – paws on to their tummies and wagging her tail super fast with her head squashing into them in a please please stroke me kind of way.

Jen & D review Dinogami 1

Because we are book buddies the lovely people at Parragon books send us a book a month. This time it isn’t strictly a book, its more a craft set with a book of instructions. Dinogami is dinosaur origami. Its cute and at first I thought it looked more like a thing for Jen (age 5) and I to do together. But after page one of the instructions I quickly realised this was a mission for D (age 11) and Me. It comes with 20 sheets of pre-printed paper, so your dinos eyes and wings and things are all in the right places.
