Week Six Weigh In

You may know I have been on holiday, I didn't weigh while I was away and so will resume now. Whilst away I did indulge in eating lots of yummy food and put on almost 5lbs! So I now have to lose those pounds again but I don't regret it. I had a lovely holiday and feel great.

Me and my brother watched it when we were younger and now my children also enjoy the new version. There is so much to buy merchandise wise and Zach has been lucky enough to receive a few new Thomas & Friends toys to review.

Review: Parragon Books 'Slide and See: Princess and the Pea'


'Slide and See: The Princess and the Pea' is one of Gracie's new favourite books. Gracie is a complete bookworm and loves reading new stories. I remember reading The Princess and the Pea back when I was a child and always loved the story. This book is a cute adaptation of the classic tale.
