Wood You Believe It?

I entered an online competition - one of those 'click to enter' ones which required no thought [or purchases or barcodes] and I won! So thank you to the forestry commission for this lovely haul of goodies
The following things were in the parcel

  • a cotton shopping bag
  • a very nice notebook
  • a Stick Man backpack mascot
  • a Stick Man activity pck [that's gone to the children next door]
  • a one-day free car park pass forForestry Commission sites
  • and best of all - the Stick Man DVD 
I love Julia Donaldson's work, and especially The Gruffalo. Sadly her stories came out a little too late for Liz and Steph's childhood - but I cannot wait to read them to Rosie!
You may have seen The Stick Man on TV at Christmas- with a stellar cast providing the voices  - Martin Freeman, Jennifer Saunders, Hugh Bonneville, Russell Tovey, Rob Brydon et al. 
This is a lovely prize to have won, and will give a lot of pleasure all round. Thank you Forestry Commission!!


  1. Ah, that's lovely! I'm up very, very early. Ofsted!!!!!!

    1. Just read your post. Hope the day goes ok x

  2. Well done! One never thinks that one will win these click competitions, but you have proved that one can!

  3. DD1 recently had a Julia Donaldson dress up day at school. She was Aurora the witch from Room on the Broom :)

  4. That's great. We are doing Julia Donaldson stories in year 2 at the moment. We also have an incubator full of eggs and pots of wriggling caterpillars in the classroom!

  5. Well done you. Good haul. Yes, you will love reading The Gruffalo to Rosie. It's a firm favourite in this house now.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
