Friendship Day On our way 01

International Day of Friendship

Today we had the great pleasure of offering our hand/paw of friendship to some wonderful residents in a local care home. We wrote a letter or card for each of the twenty nine current residents and then delivered them masked up, via the carpark of the home. We gave the items to Clare the Activities Co-ordinator.

“The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the United Nations General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.”

(Quote from www.un.org/en/observances/friendship-day )

Today we also discovered, running alongside the International Day of Friendship is the event #PostcardsOfKindness so now there is a new purpose to my life. This event was set up to bring a smile upon the faces of home care residents. This works by sending mainly postcards to individuals or as a group check out their website. Happy Reading

Share a #Nursery Rhyme with Ewe-nice

Crooked Man

There was a crooked man
and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence,
against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat,
which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together
in a little crooked house.

Well we hope you enjoyed that little video. Do join us next week when we will have more rhymes to share that you may well know and can join in with. Please #SpreadTheWord.

Obsessive About Octopuses by Owen Davey

We love the octopus and this beautiful recommended read has been added to our wish list

The Great British Bookworm


Confession time:  I am obsessive about Flying Eye Books and for good reason.  The books they publish are always top notch and visually amazing.  Whenever I see one I ultimately take the time to check in out and end up engrossed.  Yet in my opinion what they do better than most it create fabulous non-fiction.  At the heart of this achievement in Owen Davey with his cracking series.


Dedicating a book to a single animal and the various species provides the reader with a detailed, fascinating experience.  Crazy information that explains the two suborders of octopus and explains how one of the most visually striking sea creatures uses it’s body to survive is presented on every page.  I mean they have beaks!  Who knew?

Other pages look at how the Octopus is represented in mythology, conservation, the more odd members of the family and my favourite ‘self-defence’.

Ruby’s #OneMinuteStory 01 ‘The Last Race’

Check out our first ‘One Minute Story’ You might also like to know that it is also a #OneHundredWord story.

Happy Listening.

The Last Race by Rose English

A fragrant spring breeze gently blew over the meadow. The last dandelion clock prepared for the big race; it was not a race to the finish, but a contest of agility – which seed would get the furthest, in the least amount of time?

The athletes shivered in anticipation, each seed nudging its neighbour. The wind whirled, caressing the wildflowers that cheered and waved. It rippled over the grass, tickling and teasing those who waited in anticipation of the final battle. The bluebells rang out, signifying for the seeds to be ready.

Then it was here, and they were off!

Share A Million Stories for World Book Day

Folk can still sign up to be part of the Million Stories Event with prizes up for grabs.  All reading for a minimum of 10 minutes counts towards a story share.

DON’T FORGET: 1 story share = the number of children who are listening, so if you are reading to a group of 30, that’s 30 story shares!
