As if the cake didn't give it away.


A change of style this year, for Ella's 8th birthday party, with a rockclimbing afternoon. It definitely brought out the competitive side of our eldest.


I realised today, after being able to leave the party room with the mess stacked but still there, that my least enjoyable part of any party/dinner/having people over event, is the dishes. We're a non dishwasher house (the mechanical kind) and for me being able to leave the dishes, meant it was a party for me too!

Hola, quizás os interese saber que tenemos una colección que incluye el relato 'Strangers When We Meet' de Hanif Kureishi en versión original conjuntamente con el relato 'NippleJesus' de Nick Hornby.

El formato de esta colección es innovador porque permite leer directamente la obra en inglés sin necesidad de usar el diccionario al integrarse un glosario en cada página.

Tenéis más info de este relato y de la colección Read&Listen en http://bit.ly/nrWFVI.
