New Mary Shelley 'Think Geek' t-shirt. Plus Kidlet B standing on my calfs (hence concentrated grimace).
re msg 2: how very brave of kidlet!!!
I am just happy you are back with us.

Last year was not gentle on us either, loosing Eoos, my health, family, so I wasn't much around in the last months of 2011. And then I happend to stumble upon Kidlets thread and couldn't find a new thread nor yours.

Kidlet's picture of mommy 'on the computer' (loving the Ikea 'cheapo bookcase' on the right there!) You can tell I'm not quite as 'book mad' as most people on this site because I clearly have room for a picture frame on the top of the triple-stacked bookcase ;-)
Hi Linda

I miss you and kidlet in the 2012 Challenge, hanging out somewhere else these days?
I hope you and yours are well,

Hello Linda, glad to hear I'm not the only person empathising with Jeremy! I have to agree with you about 'Thief of Time' which I finished and wondered what it had all been about. Much like many of Terry Pratchett's work, though he always makes me laugh and my husband insists he's a genius!
Best wishes, Jayne
Hi There. I'm a member of the 75 challenge group. I'm compiling a list of birthdays and sending messages to those whose birthday I don't have as yet. Would you please send your birthday either to the birthday thread, listed below,
or to my home page:

Ah, those blue eyes and long eyelashes get him whatever he wants from anyone and doesn't he just know it!

Just what Christmas should be!
Me again!! ( I will stop in a minute I promise). I see you have The Gruffalo and several other books by Julia Donaldson. My daughter didn't like The Gruffalo - it scared her - but there is another Julia Donaldson/Axel Schaeffler called The Smartest Giant in Town - it is wonderful and when she was 3 or 4 I had to read that to her over and over and over again for several months.
OMG! I was looking at your kids books and just read this comment about But not the Hippopotamus:
"For some reason, I always used to sing this book to Rebecca rather than just read it as a rhyme. No idea why."
My husband always used to do it as a rap!!!!
My Mum came over the end of August with quite a bounty of books that I had requested including the Milly Molly Mandy one. My daughter loved it and I've had fun reading it to her. My daughter just turned six and I have 2 boys aged 13 and 8. This year I read (among others) the Little House series to my daughter and younger son and they really enjoyed those. (We started them last Christmas when we went to upstate NY and visited Almanzo's farm.)
I see you're a big Enid Blyton fan. My favourite Enid Blyton was Secret Island. I never read any of her books to my boys but thinking about it my 8 year old would probably really enjoy Secret Seven and Famous Five. My mum also brought Swallowdale (Arthur Ransome) which I just reread and he was very interested in that, so I think I might read him Swallows and Amazons next.
Don't know if you're familiar with Lynley Dodd's Hairy McClairy books but your 3 year old would probably love them.
I just wanted to say what a great review you wrote of Milly Molly Mandy. I LOVED the Milly Molly Mandy books when I was little - particularly the maps on the end pages :-) Based on your review I have now asked my Mum to try and find a Milly Molly Mandy book for my 5 year old daughter. Like you, I had previously thought that they wouldn't cross the the generation & culture gap too well but now I'm hopeful that they will. And if they don't? Oh well I'll enjoy rereading them.
