Competition about to close so get sharing everybody and tell me you have in comments.


You could win a family ticket, 2 children & 2 adults to this show on the 30th April at The Leas Cliff Hall in Folkestone and the book all about Sarah & Duck.

Please share this post and tell me in the comments that you have, how easy is that? A CBeebies popular show for children.

Good luck everybody.





The sun is still shining here and I have a few blog posts to write as I have been very bad, too much time spent outside in garden and out with family. It has been great though and it makes you realise again how much you love your garden, seeing your plants and bulbs coming up and then remembering planting them, or not as occasionally I see something growing and have no idea what it is or how it got there. Do you find that?

I have been doing some reading but that has gone a bit slow because the last two books I have had trouble getting into, I do feel so bad when that happens but have to keep telling myself that you cannot like everything.

I have some places in Folkestone to visit for reviews, I love seeing new businesses open and encouraging the customers in.

I also hurt my back so that has slowed me down in everything but it is much better but I have to remember not to bend or pick up anything.

Very disappointed in the response to my competition, so will do one more post and make it very easy to enter. I know the pre-school children would like the show.




Please share with families and groups as I am sure loads of youngsters would like to win this.


This show features a host of wonderful characters from the BAFTA Award-winning TV show, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday. They will play at the Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone on the 30th April.

Join Sarah and Duck, along with all their favourite friends including The Ribbon Sisters, The Shallots, Flamingo and Umbrella, as they plan a circus-themed birthday party for Scarf Lady in their garden. But when the weather turns windy and the big top is blown away, will Sarah and Duck be able to save the day?

Told through a fantastic blend of inventive puppetry, charming storytelling and toe-tapping music, and featuring all the familiar voices from the CBeebies series including Roger Allam as the Narrator and Lesley Nicol as Scarf Lady, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birthday will take families on a magical theatrical adventure.

Following the gentle adventures of a girl and her feathered best friend.  Sarah & Duck has been a huge hit since its debut in 2013, winning a BAFTA for ‘Best Pre-School Animation’ in 2014 and regularly appearing in CBeebies’ Top Ten programmes for viewers aged 4-15. Now in its third series, it is shown in over 100 counties around the world.

How would you like to win a family ticket to see the show and a book about the magic things they get up to?

All you have to do is answer this question:

How old is Sarah? 

Good luck everyone x 🙂



Looking forward to meeting Danny tommorow afternoon in Canterbury.  Any new ways to think up short stories are always welcome.  At the moment I have an idea for a book but I am not sure how to go about it so I am going to have to do some planning which is unusual for me as in the beginning I can normally just write my ideas down.

I had coffee with my friend Angela yesterday and she gave me the idea for my new story so if it does not work out I will blame her! Lol  It is a shame she could not come to this workshop as I think it would of been of interest to her.  

I always enjoy the HG Wells Festival every year as they do some interesting workshops and talks and of course the competition for the short story, which I am half way through so I need to get a move on with that too.  Busy busy busy and not enough days in the week.  Hope you have all had a good week.  We had one day of summer that was great but then we went back to winter, flipping British weather!
