Prior to agreeing to review Bush Tales by Matthew R Jameson, a multimedia collection of 12 stories rooted from the legends and Folklore of Africa performed by West End stars, I had a quick look at their website. Madame was transfixed immediately, so I agreed. We haven’t listened to the CD yet, as I’m too lazy to load it into I-tunes but we have read the Bush Baby Chorus Book and watched almost all of the stories on DVD.
I was a bit worried that the language was a bit beyond a 3 year old but this didn’t take away from her enjoyment. She loves the musical scores and the beautiful illustrations. She keeps saying ‘I want to watch another one’. My personal favourites are Unthinkably Pink and the Meerkat Muchachos. It’s a wonderful way of introducing children to Classical Music, something which we may not have done otherwise.
I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the Unthinkably Pink Bush Tale Games and Story Book app. We had a small hiccup with I-tunes codes so I’ll have to get back to you on that one.
Good old Twitter! I was moaning about baking cupcakes for my daughter’s birthday. I’d already spent £11 and I hadn’t even bought the ingredients yet, when I was rescued by @PWitchCupCakes. She’s a friend of a friend and she was heading in this general direction for an event. The only thing I had to do was drive up the A1 and meet her in a car park to pick them up.
It was so worth the drive, the cupcakes were amazing and I didn’t have to bake. Result! They were presented beautifully in a gift box and the Cupcakes resembled artwork. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to try one myself but according to the adults they were light, fluffy, zesty and a few other adjectives. One of the mums said that her daughter never eats a whole cupcake and she polished off the whole thing. I can’t recommend Klare and her cupcakes enough. Do check out Pinkest Witch Cup Cakes. She’s now offers a proper delivery service!
As usual, I didn’t manage to take a reasonable photo so I asked Clare to supply me with a couple. But I can honestly say ours were just as gorgeous. Talented Lady I’m sure you will agree!
