Children’s Book Review: Cinderfella

Once upon a time, there lived Cinderfella – a little boy, forever bossed around by his two older brothers, Gus and Gareth. “Turn up the TV! Shine our scooters!” the brothers cry. “Finish our homework!” But on the day of our story, Kayleigh, the town’s kick-fastic karate champion, is having a party, and Cinderfella is determined to dream big, dress fancy and DANCE. He’ll just need a little help along the way from his fairy dog-mother, Ruff – woof!  I think we’re all familiar with the classic story Cinderella and over the years I have seen and read many re-tellings.

Men’s Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Men can sometimes be an absolute pain to buy for. Sometimes it may be a case of someone not really liking anything that you can buy, having expensive taste or just not really wanting anything. I’m not one for just giving gifts like socks and aftershave, although there’s nothing wrong with that if you do, so I’ve come up with what I think is quite a well rounded Men’s Christmas Gift Guide for 2017! Dobell are a great website for menswear and earlier in the year John got a lovely shirt and tie from them to wear to a wedding!
