Got mine from 1 of those book clubs,they used to come to surgery where I worked,so colleagues still tell us when he's in so I can go have a nose at the bargain books!!!!!!
The boys have a bookcase in the bedroom half full,a shelf 1 in living room full to bursting! Tom I think will be a book worm,not sure bout Jc Not looking like he'll have an interest!!!

Have you got Peepo.I love that one,Harry had it at bedtime every night for a year.That and Dinosaur Roar
Arthur likes,okay I like Julia Donaldson/Axel Scheffler books-The Gruffallo,Room on the Broom,I love that one.We probably have all their books.
Oh,Aliens Love Underpants and Aliens in Underpants Save The world are current favourite.
I used to do BFC,but I found I was buying things I didn't particularly like,just because I hadn't cancelled the choice of the month.I much prefer to go to a shop and browse.Could spend all day in bookshops,and a small fortune too

jacks biggest favourite is night night baby, hes had that everynight since he was 4mnths old, we now have another story too but always night night baby last.
and the very hungry caterpilla, hes now interested in the grufalo (sp) and the smartest giant in town, he likes books, but the same over and over!
The priddy books are nice he has a gorgeous picture opposites one!

We LOVE books here,apart from Jc we are a family of book worms!!! I'm going to have to do a boot sale with my old ones-got sooo many!
Tom really likes Thomas series and postman pat stories,Jc puts up with a story while he messes round in his cot!!!! I always try and do silly voices for each train,then forget half way through! End up doing wrong voice for wrong train! We call fat controller-the fat controller daddybear!!!!! He he
Haven't got that 1 Jo-cant wait tilboys are bigger and get into longer stories!

Peepo's for Mummies really.The pictures are lovely and it's set in I think ,40's Britain,all that baby sees in his day in a little poem.Very sweet.
I did used to go to story time at the library and get the kids books every week but we have that many at home we don't need to.Can't throw anything away unless it's broken beyond repair.We have torn books held together with tape
02/09/2009 at 19:08
I love peepo - Fin had it every night when he was smaller and Zak loves it now the pictures are lovely.
We have also got all of the Julia Donaldson books -Room on the broom is my favourite as well.
02/09/2009 at 20:52
I bought it one Halloween.I don't need the book now,I know all the words,same with Peepo.
Oh,Bear Hunt's good too.The children's librarian at storytime used to get up and act it all out with the kids all joining in.Always think of that when I read it.
The Tiger Who Came To Tea's good too.I 'm sure I read it as a child,cos when I read it to ours it was familiar.
Too many.Don't get time to read my own books.
02/09/2009 at 21:46
Oh we've got tiger who came to tea!!!!!
I love kids books,big fella likes the rhymes some have his fave is giraffes cant dance-that is quite funny,and we recently got 1 called who's in the loo? Very funny.
I've just finished a good book,1 of Harlan Cobens-anyone else into those?
02/09/2009 at 22:12
we have peepo jacks to impatient at the moment and just sayes bo, and turns the page, each peach pear plum and peters chair were my childhood favourites, i LOVED the tiger who came to tea, brought that for jacks birthday, hes not sure lol! they do a play of it every year at the local theatre, jacks still a bit young!
My sister has room on the broom it was my cousins favourite, also winnie the witch she has the whole set and listens to the cd at night, the silly music creeps jack out lol!
Im reading dear fatty atm dawn frenchs biography, i love her, very funny but touching book!
02/09/2009 at 22:17
Oh a friend offered me a lend of that is it worth a read?
I usually like my thrillers or crime fiction,but do fancy a light read. Ha big fella so into his,he's even bought audio books for when he's in the van!!!!!!!! Now Jo that's an anorak!!!
Bless him Wish it was a book I could get into but we have VERY different tastes!!!!! In books,music,fashion everything!!!!!!!! You know that phrase opposites attract-could not be more true here!!!!
02/09/2009 at 22:21
We've done it again-taken over a post with our ramblings sorry Caroline! How are you hun,still uncomfy? Is Zack turning when you relax?
Hope all well
02/09/2009 at 22:34
its a pretty good book, only a chapter or so in as im on here too much lol, then glued to tv or the dsi in bed, not good i know!
andrew doesnt read, hates books but hes got very severe dyslexia so its not easy for him, amazing memory though he knows jacks top 5 by heart, great for when we loose them!
02/09/2009 at 22:45
What's a dsi???? God I'm so old and outta touch!
Hey if that's summat kinky-keep it to yourself!!! Big fella's 40 now easy does it!!!!!!!!!
02/09/2009 at 23:14
Poor Caroline,that's probably the last thing she's thinking of and it had to appear on her thread.Yeh,sorry Caroline,huge thread drift.How are you,?Silly question.
We're as bad ,Laura.With Darren it's Oblivion on the PS3 .It's a quest type game.He's a lady character in it,he has a magic horse and he's a mage,like a wizard.I don't know,seems to keep him off the pc.That's my toy for the evening.
03/09/2009 at 10:29
lol at you lot, feel like i haven't been on in ages but its probably only been a few days.
my two love books aswell, we've got most of those mentioned, no games consoles though thank goodness, got no time for those.
i'm just the same, zack is still breech which i think is making me look bigger and i've been really busy as moss started playgroup this week and is loving it. just keeping in mind that cause of the spd i wont be allowed to go over my dates so he will definately be here in 6 weeks but more likely to be 4
03/09/2009 at 11:01
hope the little monkey turns soon! glad moss is enjoying playgroup, i need to start looking around for jack hes starting this time next year.
Rachel a DSi is the new nintendo DS the handheld thing has camera in it now though, its andrews but i steal it as i can come on here on it!
andrew used to play final fantasy on the ps2, did my head in so we lost the disk, now its mario kart on the wii, or call of duty on the ds, either way. noisy!! i like peace in the evening!
03/09/2009 at 14:35
Oh I'm behind on the times me!!! far to technical for me that!!!!
Glad Moss getting on so well Caroline-cheered me up a bit as Tom goes next Tues Why am I still being silly bout this????
Come on Zack turn!!!!! Hope he does soon-sorry for mentioning getting fruity-you don't want to hear that hun x
03/09/2009 at 16:02
lol no zack dont turn, with all the problems i'm having this pregnancy i think the best option is a section and it'll be easier for me to get one if he's still breech
rach i was nervous and upset the first day but he loved it. yesterday i had to call him back to give me a kiss, cuddle and to say bye lol. i still had a wee cry tho lol
03/09/2009 at 22:37
zack stay where you are!! lol, i was so scared of another awful induction when i had my 12week scan with lola, i said to the consutant, id like a section, he asked me why and they let me, but jack was only 7mnths old when i fell pregnant, god that sounds bad!!!
i hope whatever happens it goes well caroline.
Im the same rach, i get all teary about the thought of playgroup and were waiting a year from now, going to start looking around though! Theres a lovely one called whirlybird, its attached to my old primary school & nursery, so hed start at 3 and leave at 9, i like the idea of that, only thing that concerns me is the teachers reconising me lol! and my sister and brother go there, so jack will have tom join him in playgroup a yr after then lola will join tom iyswim and then in nursery too so up until there 5 theyll be in and out of class together! but its the best school so id rather they were with family than in a bad school
