Activity Book ‘Doodle, Spots, Stripes and Squiggles’ - Review & Giveaway

This month as Parragon Book Buddies Parragon Books sent us their activity book ‘Doodle, Spots, Stripes and Squiggles'. Aimed at ages 3-7 I feel it's perfect for my two monkeys so big monkey put it to the test.
"Finish the patterns, squiggles and shapes to create amazingly imaginative doodles. Inventive prompts and artistic page starters will inspire your child to doodle, create, enjoy".
The activity book is full of pages he was keen to complete and being bright and colourful they gave him the incentive to keep trying. 
Sometimes he followed the instructions which he found easy and clear to read and understand being nearly 7years old. Other times he did his own thing! 
We like this simple but fun activity book which encourages pattern forming, the use of colours and imagination as well as instruction following.
GIVEAWAY
Parragon books are kindly giving one of you a Doodle, Spots, Stripes and Squiggles Activity book of your own. Just complete the rafflecopter form below by the closing date Midnight 10/04/15. UK residents only. Good luck!

Week 13 #Project365 Round Up

Day 81. I noticed our Magnolia tree was starting to bud Sunday. I love Magnolia trees. They are so pretty.
Day 82. Lovely morning spent in town with a friend getting our nails done and having coffee.
Day 83. I happened to catch the sun and clouds looking rather cool just before tea.
Day 84. The monkeys set up a breakfast picnic which we even had to queue up for!
Day 85. Big monkey enjoyed Postman Pat races with me before he went to Preschool. He won! 
Day 86. Spinning today at lunch time and I so needed this to wake me up! 
Day 87. I treated my Mum to afternoon today to thank her for everything she does for us. It was wonderful and so nice to do something just the two of us.

A lovely week and now the Easter holidays for the monkeys. We've not a lot planned but I'm sure we'll do some nice things. Hope you've all had pleasant weeks too.

It fits!

Well what a week it's been! I tried pole dancing and loved it, and I've lost another 3lb. I'm delighted to report I've now lost a total of 37lb.
Last night I tried the swimming costume on that I recently bought to wear tonight and was pleased to see it fits and feels comfy.
I've always tended to steer clear of any swim wear and if I've absolutely needed to wear a cosie I've always gone for plain black, so this new suit is a welcome change! 
Going back to the Pole fitness class, all I can say is WOW! You sure do get a work out. Come the weekend I could barely move my arms. It was a taster seesion to see if I would like it and now I'm looking to do an eight week course - it was that much fun.
With the Easter holidays fast approching hitting the gym will be that march harder but infact I'm dressed ready to go today. 
I will fit my classes around the monkeys and hubby for the next few weeks as I've still got some pounds to go before I hit the weight I want to be.
That's it for now, but do keep reading and following my journey!
