Giveaway & Review: The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl

Growing up, my favourite author by far was Roald Dahl. He is a legend in children’s literature and his books continue to delight children. They are not for the squeamish though. Roald Dahl delighted in telling stories that could make your hair curl. In this recently published book, The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl you can delve a little deeper into the stories and characters, and find out some brilliant behind the scenes information about Dahl’s writing. Written by Stella Caldwell, it is a spectacular scrapbook of stories and characters!

Review: The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl

This fantastical and official book, published just over 100 years after Roald Dahl’s birth, gives a brilliant new perspective on his most-loved (and hated) characters and stories. The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl brings together Dahl’s wondrous creations and Quentin Blake’s iconic illustrations with previously unpublished reproductions of imagined letters, artefacts, posters and much, much more. Inspired by the characters and events from each of Dahl’s books, and including original thoughts and notes on yellow lined paper – as if written by Dahl himself – the book expands upon his stories in a humorous and creative way, making it the ideal addition to everyone’s Dahl collection.

This is a wonderful book to dip in and out of. It’s just the thing to read alongside one of his books, if you’re reading The Twits for example, dip into The Twits section and find out more about the horrifying Mr and Mrs Twit.

Read Mrs Twit’s recipe for Bird Pie, become a giant expert with the BFG’s spotter’s guide, discover Willy Wonka’s golden ticket or take a look at The Trunchbull’s tips for school discipline.

The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl contains a map linking all of Roald Dahl’s fictional worlds; information about his special writing hut and pages and pages about his stories. It is wonderfully illustrated by his long term collaborator, Quentin Blake and contains fold out pages and special items such as The Oompa-Loompa Field guide, a guide to Gobblefunk and there’s a special secret letter hidden in the back of the book.

Review: The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl

Did you know Roald Dahl always wrote in pencil on yellow lined paper? You do now!

It really is absolutely packed full of lovely secrets scattered across each page. It’s a glorious read and would make a really wonderful gift for any Roald Dahl fan, whatever their age. We’ve certainly enjoyed reading it together, dipping in and out and finding out more wonderful things about some of the weird and wonderful creatures and grotesque grown ups in Roald Dahl’s books.

The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl is published by Carlton Books, costs £12.99 and is available from a wide range of retailers, including Amazon.

Healthy Recipe: Refreshing Lifeway Kefir Ice Lollies

The recent heatwave has meant that we’ve been having fruity ice lollies as an afternoon snack to help us cool down. I’ve been mostly making these with weak squash, but to mix things up a little I’ve made a few batches of kefir ice lollies using Lifeway Kefir.

Lifeway Kefir is America’s leading kefir manufacturer which has recently launched in the UK. Kefir is a live and active cultured milk smoothie with a tangy taste and a creamy consistency, a bit like a drinkable yogurt. It’s just the thing for an on the go breakfast or for a snack for children.

Healthy Recipe: Refreshing Lifeway Kefir Ice Lollies

Kefir is considered to be a good source of probiotics (healthy bacteria) and calcium. There’s a really good article on the health benefits of kafir on the BBC Good Food website if you want to know more about it.

Lifeway Kefir is currently stocked in all Booths supermarkets in the North West and is currently available in four different flavours; plain, strawberry, blueberry and mango. We were sent some samples to try, and with the weather being hot, the first thing I did was make some kefir ice lollies. These kefir ice lollies are about the simplest thing you could possibly make, seriously.

Healthy Recipe: Refreshing Lifeway Kefir Ice Lollies

Kefir Ice Lollies

You will need:
1 250ml bottle of your favourite flavour of Lifeway Kefir
Ice lolly moulds
A freezer

How to make your Kefir ice Lollies:
Shake your bottle of Lifeway Kefir and pour equal amounts of the kefir into your ice lolly moulds. Carefully place the moulds in the freezer and let them freeze for at least 4 hours. It might take longer depending on the size of your moulds.

The kefir ice lollies can cheerfully stay in your freezer for up to a month. When you are ready to eat them; pour a mug of hot water, dip your lolly mould into it for 10 seconds and that helps release the lolly from the mould. You are now free to enjoy your lolly.

Healthy Recipe: Refreshing Lifeway Kefir Ice Lollies

If you enjoy yoghurt I think kefir will float your boat. It appeals to me as a mum because it’s handy to have a few bottles in the fridge to cater for kids tummy rumbles over the summer holidays. We liked the range of flavours, though the blueberry and mango flavours were by far the most popular among my crew. I think they’d be great over cereals too.

My son often has to take antibiotics and we’ve been advised to give him probiotic drinks to help top up the good bacteria in his gut. These Lifeway kefir drinks are just the kind of thing we would give him to drink each day. They’re tasty, they’re healthy and they make darn good ice lollies!

You can find Lifeway kefir in selected Booths stores.

Seashore Scavenger Hunt Activity + FREE Printable

We are really into scavenger hunts at the moment. It’s a great way to spend some time exploring and learning about what’s around you. A few weeks ago we did a summer scavenger hunt in our local park and as we’re visiting the beach this week I thought I’d put together a seashore scavenger hunt to see what we can find on the beach.

We do love beachcombing and I’m a keen collector of sea glass, so beach combing is something we all enjoy. Last year the boy went rockpooling with the National Trust and found lots of interesting creatures in the rock pools of North Devon.

I’ve included a wide variety of things you can find on the beach in our seashore scavenger hunt. You might not be able to find them all, especially the slightly rarer things like sea glass and mermaid’s purses, but it’s worth taking a look to see what you can find. If you want to find out more about mermaid’s purses, they have lots of child-friendly information on The Shark Trust website.

When it comes to sea glass, don’t pick any up that has got sharp edges, that’s just glass. Sea glass should look round and smooth like a coloured pebble; it’s a very special thing to find on the beach, but do be careful.

I’ve left some room for you to make any notes about what you might find on the beach. Doing a seashore scavenger hunt is a great way to start conversations with your child about nature and what kinds of things you can find on the seashore. Why not take along a net and a bucket and see what creatures you can find in a rockpool. How many different kinds of shell can you find and what creatures lived in them?

I always like to do a little bit of a 2 minute beach clean when I visit the beach. It’s easy to pick up the litter I find to put in the bin or recycle at home. It all helps to keep our beaches tidy and some litter out of the oceans.

Children’s Books: Six books about the Seashore

Going to the beach is an important part of our summer. Lazing on the beach, building sandcastles and going beach-combing and rock-pooling is something we really enjoy. The seashore is a great place to explore, you can find all kinds of creatures lurking in rock-pools and under rocks. Ahead of our beach holiday in Cornwall, we’ve been looking at books about the sea. Here are six of the best books about the seashore.

Six books about the Seashore

Secrets of the Seashore by Carron Brown is a wonderful “shine a light” book where you use a torch to reveal hidden detail in the illustrations. Spot the tiny shrimps hiding in the sand, see a shy crab underneath a rock and watch a jewel-like anemone open its tentacles in this gorgeously illustrated book of hidden habitats. It’s a lovely interactive way to discover more about the secrets of the seashore.

Children's Books: Six books about the Seashore

Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson. When Crab finds a new shell, he doesn’t want to share it with anyone – especially not a blobby purple anemone and a tickly bristleworm. But life in the rock pool proves tougher than Crab thinks and he soon finds he needs his new housemates. This Julia Donaldson book has a lovely rhythmic style and beautiful illustrations which makes this real favourite of ours.

Seashore Watcher by Maya Plass. What lives on the beach? What lives in the shallow water? Can you track a Fiddler Crab? Learn how to spot tracks, identify markings and discover secret hideaways at the seashore. This book is packed with fascinating facts and lots of activities. It even comes in a waterproof ziplock bag to keep it safe and dry during your seashore expeditions. This is a great seashore spotter guide.

The Seashore (Usborne Beginners) by Lucy Bowman. This is an essential book for Key Stage 1 readers, and jam-packed with age appropriate information about the seashore. Which fish can breathe on land? Why do some crabs live in other animals’ shells? And what happens when seabirds drink too much sea water? Find the answers to these questions, and much more in this great beginners guide.

Magic Beach by Alison Lester is something of a seaside classic. Filled with fun rhymes and make-believe stories, this wonderfully illustrated children’s tale invites you to imagine a perfect beach where you can swim, surf, splash through the waves, make sandcastles, hunt for treasures, explore rock-pools, muck about in boats, fish from the jetty, and build a bonfire under the stars.

A First Book of the Sea by Nicola Davies is a spellbinding collection of poems about the oceans of the world and their shores. With this book, children can swim alongside dolphins and flying fish, explore rockpools and sail from pole to pole and back, learning about everything from phosphorescence and plankton to manta rays and puffins. It’s a lovely, imaginative way to explore the oceans of the world.

Review: Vionic Shoes Denim Midi Slip-On Sneakers

Back in May I went to the Blog On Conference in Manchester and I was the lucky winner of a pair of Vionic Shoes. They let me choose whatever shoes I wanted, and having tried on and loved their Midi slip-on shoes, I decided that they were the ones that I just had to have. The only problem was they had sold out of the leopard print in my size.

I chose instead a pair of their Denim Midi sneakers. I thought they’d look great with jeans and I could easily dress them up or down. Thankfully I was right on both counts. The Midi sneakers are one of their best sellers. They come in a range of different looks; leopard, snake, grey, denim, champagne and black. I still covert the leopard, but I’m very happy indeed with my denim pair.

Review: Vionic Shoes Denim Midi Slip-On Sneakers

The denim is dark blue, it works so well with my jeans, I am in love with how they look. They have a durable rubber sole and they’re really comfortable to wear as soon as you get them out of the box.

Vionic Shoes recommend that you wear your new shoes for just a few hours for the first few days to allow your feet to adjust to your new orthotic shoes. Within one to two weeks they should be fully broken in and they should be completely comfortable and supportive.

Their shoes are designed by podiatrists to give superior orthotic support as well as stability which helps realign the feet back to their natural position. This can help relieve common aches and pains, such as heel pain (plantar fasciitis), knee pain and lower back pain. They may be orthotic shoes; but they look stylish and you’d never know to look at them that they’re primarily designed to do your feet and your posture the world of good.

As the owner of a bad back, I really notice the difference to my pain levels depending on what kind of shoes I’m wearing. I need lots of cushioning and I always wear flat shoes; which can make dressing up for a nice night out tricky. I’ve worn my Denim Midi Slip-On Sneakers on a few evenings out; not dressy affairs, but enough to warrant wearing a nice pair of shoes. These have really fit the bill, they look smart, I look smart, I’m very happy with them.

Review: Vionic Shoes Denim Midi Slip-On Sneakers

The Denim Midi Slip-On Sneakers cost £100 (at the time of writing they have been reduced to £70 in the sale). I will not rest until I get my hands on a pair of the leopard print Midis; but for now I am more than content with my lovely denim pair.

If you struggle with back pain; poor posture or conditions like plantar fasciitis, it can be hard to find fashionable shoes which are comfortable to wear. I can recommend Vionic Shoes, they’ve really helped me feel comfortable and look fashionable too.

For more information about Vionic Shoes, visit their website.

Disclosure: Although I won these Vionic Shoes, I was under no obligation to review them. I liked them a lot, so I thought I’d share that with you.

Classic Winnie the Pooh from Rainbow Designs Ltd

He is very soft and lovable. He is suitable from birth and would make a very lovely gift for a new baby; or a Winnie the Pooh fan of any age.

Summer Recipe: No Churn Plum Ice Cream

July is National Ice Cream Month and there’s no better month of the year to sit in the sunshine and eat a cool refreshing ice cream. We have two plum trees in our garden and each year we have more plums than we can cope with. In years gone by I’ve made plum tarts and crumbles and big batches of plum jelly. This year I put some aside to make a batch of fruity and refreshing plum ice cream.

This plum ice cream recipe is quite simple to make and you can do it even if you don’t have an ice cream maker. Sadly as we began to churn our first batch of this lovely ice cream, our ice cream maker churned its last and ended up in the bin.

I’ve called this no churn plum ice cream, but you can churn it if you want, it’s often easier if you have an ice cream maker, but not the end of the world if you haven’t.

Summer Recipe: No Churn Plum Ice Cream

No Churn Plum Ice Cream

Ingredients:
400g of ripe plums
200g caster sugar
200mls double cream
200mls vanilla yoghurt

Method:

Take your plums and give them a wash and check them over for nasties and rotten bits, discard if you’re not happy with the fruit. Use good ripe, juicy plums. Heat the plums in a large saucepan with a good splash of water. Boil them until soft, then rub them through a sieve to get rid of the stones and skins.

Pour the plum purée back into a clean pan and warm gently, add the sugar and stir until it has dissolved. Taste the purée, add more sugar if you think it needs it. Some plums can be quite tart. Leave the mixture to cool.

If you have an ice cream maker, add the cream and vanilla yoghurt to the purée and combine. Following the instructions on your ice cream maker, add the plum ice cream mixture and churn until it’s ready. Them store it in the freezer until you’re ready to use it.

If you’re not using an ice cream maker, perhaps because yours suddenly died; whip the cream before adding the vanilla yoghurt and the plum. Pour the ice cream mixture into a large tub with a secure lid and put it in the freezer. Remember to take it out of the freezer every 45 minutes or so and give it a good stir with a fork, this will stop ice crystals from forming.

Once your ice cream is frozen, it will be quite set, when you need a scoop or two, take it out of the freezer about 15 minutes before you need it, it’ll be easier to scoop!

I’ve topped the plum ice cream with pink sprinkles, but crushed amaretti biscuits are just fabulous on it. Go forth and make plum ice cream with some of your summer fruit glut, you won’t regret it!

Summer Scavenger Hunt Activity + FREE Printable

The summer holidays are well and truly here. The kids have broken up from school and they’re taking a good deal of entertaining. One of our favourite things to do is to pack a picnic and head to the local park. It’s always good to have an activity to do to keep the kids engaged and entertained, so I’ve come up with this Summer Scavenger Hunt which should have them running about, exploring and learning more about nature.

We live by the river and walk the dog down there most days. By the river is a nature reserve and we often see lots of different birds, insects and plants. I’ve tried to keep the Summer Scavenger Hunt quite generic, so you should be able to find most of the bugs, birds and plants in your local park.

Download your free Summer Scavenger Hunt Activity Printable here.Summer Scavenger Hunt Activity + FREE Printable

I have left room for children to make notes too. You might want to ask them some questions about what they find too. Here are a few to get you started –

How many spots does a ladybird have? There are 46 different types in the UK, but only 26 look like a classic red and black spotted ladybird we all love. Most common ladybirds have 2 spots, 7 spots or 10 spots.

What is a dandelion clock? A dandelion clock is the downy spherical seed head of a dandelion. When we blow the seeds off the clock we make a wish, but other people count the number of puffs it takes to blow off all the seeds, which tells you the time, in theory!

How strong are ants? Ants can lift up to anywhere from 20 to 100 times their own weight, depending on the species of ant.

Why does a bee die after it stings you? Honey bees are the only bees to die after stinging. When a honey bee stings a person or an animal, it cannot pull its sting out and it leaves behind not only the sting, but part of its abdomen and digestive tract. This then kills the honey bee.

Look out for more of our Scavenger Hunt Activity sheets over the next few months, you never know what mini beasts, plants or critters you may encounter!

Judging the International Cheese Awards 2018

Being a judge at the International Cheese Awards is my dream job and once again this year I got to live my dream for one day in Nantwich, Cheshire.

The International Cheese Awards is the largest dairy industry event in the UK. This year’s awards saw 300 judges and 158 stewards descend upon the cheese pavilion to judge 5183 different cheese and dairy products across hundreds of categories. That itself is a massive organisational feat, but throw in a lunch for 1350 and you can see why the International Cheese Awards is considered to be the best dairy event in the world.

Judging the International Cheese Awards 2018

The International Cheese Awards draws judges from near and far. In my judging team were Lavinia Newell, a retired cheese-maker from the UK and Sue Arthur, director at Over the Moon Dairy Co and New Zealand Cheese School. Both Lavinia and Sue were incredibly knowledgeable and took their time to explain what characteristics we were looking for in the cheeses we were judging.

Judging the International Cheese Awards 2018

Together we judged two categories – DP2 “Farmhouse / Traditional Cheshire
Cheese – White. Any weight” and DP151 “Soft, Semi-soft or Cream Cheese without Additives – other than Blue Veined Cheese – With Rind. Open to non UK producers”.

The traditional Cheshire cheese category has just 9 cheeses to judge, which was a fairly straight forward task. Lavinia explained that we were looking for a white, crumbly texture. This mellow cheese should break down between your fingers like butter and it should have a slightly nutty flavour. Ultimately we chose the Wensleydale Creamery entry as our winner. Each winning cheese is then put forward to be judged against all the other category winners to find the supreme champion.

Judging the International Cheese Awards 2018

Our second category, the soft, semi soft or cream cheese category had 39 entries which was much harder to judge. There were so many different styles of cheese; from brie to Camembert, burrata to goats cheese and almost everything in between. The winner was an absolutely divine Italian burrata from Masseria Posticchia Sabelli. I suspect it will be hard to find in the UK, but it was an absolute joy to eat.

And just like that, my judging shift was over for another year. All of the winners had been taken away to be judged again with the supreme champion being announced after lunch.

The lunch at the International Cheese Awards is legendary. Lunch saw 1350 enjoying a champagne reception; followed by a lunch of cold meats and hearty salads, delicious puddings made by Mrs Harvey. I’m not sure who this pudding goddess is, but I’d like to get to know her better. Somewhere between the puddings and the epic cheeseboard, the winners were announced.

Judging the International Cheese Awards 2018

The winner and Supreme Champion was Belton Cheese for their Cheshire, a well deserved win! You can find all the winners here on the International Cheese Awards website.

The International Cheese Awards runs alongside the Nantwich Agricultural Show in Cheshire. You can visit the International Cheese Awards and the cheese pavilion on 25th July 2018, but it’ll be back again next year if you’ve missed out!

If reading this has given you a sudden craving for cheese, you might enjoy these mini cheese and pickled walnut quiches.
