World Book Day #WBD2015

Frozen and Spiderman
Since Isabelle started school a few years back, we have been taking part in dressing up for the World Book Day which is celebrated by many schools. What I do not understand is why they all have it on different days as Isabelle’s dressing up day was just before the February half-term holidays, and this year I was very disorganized let me tell you!

With planning our ski holidays I have completely forgotten until the very morning of the school World Book Day, and at the end we had to go for the circus flea, for the character from one of the Perform plays, as we had about 20 minutes to get everything ready.

Both my girls love Frozen, and it’s such a shame we have been sent absolutely gorgeous Frozen costumes for both after the day, but I am sure they will be useful next year too. Plus it’s Olivia’s 3rd birthday in 2 weeks’ time, and she will be delighted to receive it!

If your little one is still looking for a costume, check your Sainsbury’s store or online! Sainsbury’s has a great range of quality dress up costumes and storybooks available at great value for World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. Sainsbury’s will also be hosting reading corners at selected stores across the country in the lead up to World Book Day.

What’s the Plan?

I don’t know how about you, but I love challenges. Huff Post with Heinz Amoy cooking sauce have recently come up with a very interesting challenge. Would you be tempted if I told you the winner will win a trip to Hong Kong? I have never been there, but would love to go one day.

So what’s the challenge?

3 teams in 3 weeks are facing a big challenge called “Feasts on the Street”. It’s all about setting up your own street food business, so if that is your kind of thing, watch the above video for more details.

In previous episode they had to come up with a new meal and serve it to public, and find out if people liked what they had come up with.

This time the 3 teams need to create a good business plan and a name for their new street food business. They also need to reveal what food they would be offering to public. Create a brand concept for their business, once completed get out there and get feedback from stallholders, restaurant owners and public. Which team would you want to win?

The Gallery: Colour

Winter and autumn are full of grey most of the time, so I am presenting you some lovely positive colours on this gorgeous peacock. I took this photo when we were on holidays in Algarve, Portugal last April. It took me a while to get the bird looking at me and proudly showing off all his feathers.

Patience is the king!
