Book of the week!

Wow! Where did the week go! It's time again for.......BOOK OF THE WEEK!

This week's book is a little different. There's no dinosaurs, no furry creatures having adventures and shockingly it isn't a hand me down!!! It is, however, incredibly educational and contains a lot of fruit and veg!

This week's book of the week is How Things Grow.

Belton House

Built in the 1680's for Sir John Brownlow, Belton House is described as 'a classic country house' by the National Trust. Set in 1300 acres of land it offers beautiful grounds, which are just waiting to be explored and enjoyed. 

Belton House is around an hours journey from where we live in Nottingham, so it's on our radar for days out, especially as we're National Trust members. Back in June, with nice weather forecast, we set out for our first visit!

Movie of the week!!!

Yes, it's back!! Just like book of the week the rainy days and lack of sunshine have brought about the return of movie of the week!

Now as a non-Disney film (shock horror) this wouldn't usually be a first choice in our house. I always feel a bit of betrayal when we watch an animation which doesn't feature the famous castle in the open credits! In fact when Joseph was a bit younger he used to shout no if a film didn't show said castle, but if any film was going to change our minds it would be this one, making it our current fave. 

This week's movie of the week is Trolls!
