Move over Man Flu, Pregnancy Cold is in town!

I feel crap.
Seriously awful!

My eyes are watering, my nose alternates between blocked and freeflow, I ache all over (and at 30wks pregnant I was aching BEFORE this!), my sinus’ ache, my head aches, I have a nasty cough and I appear to have swallowed razor blades.
So considering this, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to be pissed off!

I send my 4 year old off into the wide world to get an education, and what does he bring home? The School Sniffle…. the cold of whose origins are unknown, that for the Child is a mere sniffle but for those lucky enough to share an abode with said Child, it is a rip roaring stonking cold. (Thinking of contacting Ofsted citing this spreading of germs as unnecessary homework).

And the worst, the very worst….. I can take anything for it! Oh no sorry, I can take paracetamol (wow!). 

So I am writing this as a shameless bid for sympathy and if there are pregnancy angel, safe remedy advice. Just look at the photos – how can you NOT feel pity? Please take a mo to share any good pregnancy cold survival tips!


REVIEW: Titch & Mitch, Book 4&5 in a fantastic series

I was very excited to receive the two latest Titch & Mitch books by Garth Edwards to read and review. I have always been something of a sci-fi and fantasty buff and these are right up my street.

The Adventures of Titch and Mitch – Book Four
The Magic Boots.
“My Dear Boots”, said the Mayor,
“Allow me to introduce you to two very nice pixies. Please choose either Titch or Mitch!”.
A lonely pair of magic boot are locked up in a tower and in need of a good home. Titch and Mitch would dearly love to have them, but the boots have other ideas…!
Escaped lions, mercy missions, a turkey with special powers, Christmas chaos and some very strange cheese! The two adventurous pixies take it all in their stride.
Welcome to the wonderful world of Titch and Mitch.

The Adventures of Titch and Mitch – Book Five
The Blue Wizard
“I see  person coming this way… she’s wearing a long black cape… and  pointed hat. She’s looking for two pixies, a turkey and a dog…”.
The Blue Wizard has lost his Singing Kettle! A Singing Kettle can tell the future, and Wiffen has found it. But the future is not looking good for Titch and Mitch and their friends.
Who was searching for them….?
Could it be the Black Witch, up to her evil tricks again?
This time she kidnapped Lucinda, a pixie princess.
Can Titch and Mitch stop her in her tracks?
 Dripping wet and covered intoads, rescuing princesses is a doddle!
At 137 pages and 128 pages long respectfully and filled with delightful pencil-type drawings done by talented illustrator Max Stasyuk, these books are easy to read, quick paced, exciting and keeps you going until the last page. Ok I am not in the target age range for this book (I missed out by a few years ahem), but if I find these this engaging and enteratining I can be pretty confident that younger children will too!
Filled with magic, mayhem and adventure the loveable characters Titch and Mitch get up to all sorts and learn many lessons along the way. Fantastic stories that capture the imagination of the reader and leaves you wanting more!
I would definitely purchase these book, infact the series, for Kieran when he is older and imagine my two nephews aged 9 and 10, both confident readers would love them! A book for boys, girls and all magic lovers!
