I found this to be a really emotional story which could capture the heart of anyone it could break even the toughest person.
This story definately brought a tear to my eye. It is wrote by Michelle margorian who is a very talented writer. There was also a drama of this released staring John Thaw.
It is a story of friendship and love. The story is based on a young boy called william beech who is evacuated to the country as war sets in which for him is a blessing in disguise as he has a mother who isnt capable of looking after him. She is cruel to him and often gives him the belt.
William arrives in the countryside and is housed with an elderly man called Tom oakley(mister Tom) who is less than happy to take on this boy.
mister tom has no choice but to take william on however he grows too love william and treats him like family. he turns william into the proper child that he should be and allows him to have some well deserved fun like any child.
mr tom is not happy when he is told that williams mother is not well and she wishes for him to return home however this was just a ploy so that she could get william home to put him through some more punishment. mister tom doesnt hear from william once he goes back to london and becomes curios.
He goes to london and saves him just in time. definately a film to watch. you see a loving relationship grow between william and mister tom and a friendship that will last forever. definately an emotional one to watch or read.
If you are buying a steriliser this is the one which i would reccommend. it is around £35 which in my opinion is value for money.
it is not the cheapest steriliser on the market however it is a trusted make for baby products.
The steriliser is fast and reliable. The steriliser is a steam steriliser which in my opinion is the best one to buy as it sterilisers your products quickly and too a high standard.
The steriliser holds up to six bottles and quite a lot of other items on the trays below.
It is easy to use and doesnt really require any setting up.
You dont need any sterilising tablets however you do need to use the descaling tablets around once a month which cleans the steriliser. in my opinion it is best to give the steriliser a quick clean after each use to ensure that there is no build up however this is not a necessity.
It sterilises all the products in under eight minutes which is reasonably fast.
you pour water into the steriliser put the lid on and flick the switch. Easy. The water in the steriliser turns quite rapidly into steam and begins to work.
Dont touch the steriliser for about five minutes after it has finished as it does get very hot.
Playpens in my opinion are an essential iitem to buy when you have a small child.
They are designed for the safety of children and work very well in my opinion.
They are quite expensive to buy however it is well worth the money to know that your child is safe when you have jobs to do around the house.
I bought a lindam playpen for my child and it is very useful.
The playpen is very sterdy and definately safe for my child.
It comes is either black or white which are colours that go with most things.
The playpen can be used from when the child is born however i feel the most important time that it is needed is when the baby becomes more active.
You know that when your baby is crawling he can go no further than inside the playpen.
The lindam playpen has solid bars around and a safety gate which can be opened from the outside not something a young child could open.
It can also be converted into a room diveder if you are in the room with them and want them to play in a specific area.
It has a soft cushioned matt for the area inside the playpen so they are less likely to fall and hurt themselves.
There is also a lot of room inside the playpen for him to move about in.
In my opinion there isnt much difference in the makes of playpens they all do the same job at the end of the day however i chose this make as it is well known in baby products.
It cost me £80 which isnt the cheapest on the market however there are a lot more that are more expensive than this one also.
The playpen which i purchased is very easy to fold away and can be stored easily.
After the success of the first volume the 5 minute shorts of each episode the creators of the clone wars mini series were given the go ahead to make a second series and to extend the episodes to about 15 minutes.
This series is a great gap fill between episode II attack of the clones and Episode III revenge of the sith, focusing mainly on the escapades of Anakin Skywalker although it does have some focus on other characters and also shows the power of Yoda inthe invasion of coruscant and how General Grievous became an asthmatic battle droid definatly worth watching by star wars fans and in my opinion its not to childish.
The animation style is pretty cool and the voice acting is done well to definitely worth watching or buying and it can probably be bought quite cheaply now.

if you are a heavy packer when you go away on holiday it is best to pre book excess bagggage as it is a lot cheaper in the travel agents than when you arrive at the desk at the airport.
normally you usually get about a 15 kilos allowance when you go away with most airlines some of the better airlines offer you a bigger baggage allowance up to 20 kilos.
its always best to check what your baggage allowance is before you go on holiday as if you over pack you can get a shock when you get a big bill at the check in desk.
if you do not have the extra money on you to pay for the excess baggage they will usually ask you to take the extra items out of your luggage and leave them behind at the desk at the airport that you are travelling from.
you can get charged arround £5 for every kilo which you are over the allowance which isnt so bad if you are only one kilo over the allowance however if you are a lot over the allowance it can take quite a chunk out of your holiday allowance.
when packing be responsible and know your limits.
also check your case weight when you are returning home as you usually have extra on the return journey as you may buy souvenirs for people.
definately worth checking as it can be quite a shock when you arrive at the desk.
spread your luggage evenly through peoples cases who you are travelling with to avoid excess baggage charges
tesco select prawn cocktail crisps is tesco own version crisps which in my opinion are a reasonably high standard of crisps,
they have a really strong flavour and are a lot cheaper than leading brands of crisps such as walkers.
they are definately worth having in the house as a snack which you can just grab.
they are liked by both adults and children.
tesco also do other flavours in the select range such as cheese and onion, salt and vinegar and plain which are all of a reasonable standard. they are definately a lot cheaper than other brands and are just as good in my opinion.
if you are looking for a cheap snack to have in stock i would definately reccommend these. they are a good lunch box filler. they do have quite a strong taste to them so some people may not like this.
they are only available in tesco stores so if buying them you would have to buy a good few packets if you dont do shopping at the same store all the time.
I enjoy terrys chocolate orange around the festive period as all my friends usually buy these in and it is a tasty treat however i couldnt eat them all year round as i find them quite sickly. it is milk chocolate with an orange taste to it.
this chocolate last you quite a while as in my opinion you can only eat a few of the segments as it has a really unique taste and is very chocolatey best eaten in small doses.
this chocolate was originated in the uk but is now available in many countries around the world and is a popular chocolate and loved by many.
it is quite fun for the children as the chocolate wedges are together wrapped in foil which of course is an orange colour and the best way to seperate the segments is too whack it on a hard surface and they come apart.
however they do now sell it in a chocolate bar form which is a lot less messy however in my opinion is less fun.
there is quite a few varieties of this on the mmarket however the original one in my opinion is the best.
the popular phrase for this chocolate is "its not terrys its mine".
really love the adverts by dawn french for this chocolate however the new advertisements are not that good
Cadbury buttons are a great treat for children however they are also loved by adults too.
they are made by a well known company which i always have good feedback for.
cadbury buttons are small cirles of milk chocolate which in my opinion tastes great and there is just enough in a packet for children .
they cost around 35p which is a really good price for a nice chocolate.
the packaging is really good and stands out it has the usual bright purple cadbury colour.
the name of the chocolate is written in bright white which stands out on the packaging. all the colours on the pack work very well together.
the chocolate can also be bought in tubes which is great as a gift for someone.
they also sell the chocolate in big packets which in my opinion would be more suited to adults. this is a great tasty chocolate which is enjoyed by many people.
these are really tasty biscuits which in my opinion are unique to everything else that is on the market.
it has a chocolate biscuit at the bottom a creamy centre and another chocolte biscuit at the top.
the minature oreos are a really nice snack and something that you can pick at throughout the day.
i buy these on a regular occassion as it is a treat that both myself and the children enjoy. they are also a big hit with my colleagues at work. they go perfectly with a glass of ice cold milk.
they look quite strange as the biscuits look black which may put some people off however i will try anything once. i tried these and found them to be a big hit.
a tub of them costs around £1.50 which in my opinion is great value.
the packaging is unique. the writing is in yellow and white and the lid is also yellow. the packaging is ble and it has quite a few pictures of the biscuit on there. in my opinion the colours dont go too well together on the packaging although it does make it look unique
This was my favourite chocolate bar and they stopped selling it in my local shops i was absolutely gutted i can still get it in the shops close to my work which is great.
it has a chocolate and glucose filling which has shortcake pieces of biscuit in the middle.
then it has a caramel coating around the glucose and chocolate centre aand then a chocolate coating around the caramel.
this chocolate bar is made my cadburys which is a really nice chocolate company and has a good reputation.
this chocolate is supposed to give you more energy however i dont think it does that i just think it tastes very nice.
not a chocolate bar that you could eat a lot of as it is very sickly and quite sugary however it definate sorts you out if you have a chocolate craving very chocolately in deed.
it costs around 40p for a bar which is a reasonable price.
the packaging definately stands out as it is electric blue with bright white writing great colours.
love this chocolate.
This is quite a small chocolate bar which in my opinion is quite plain and boring.
it is a crunchy biscuit which is covered in thick milk chocolate.
the packaging is bright red which stands out to people on the shelves.
They only sell them in a multipack which in my opinion is too much as i could not eat these regularly.
they are quite a sweet and sickly chocolate bar you couldnt eat a lot of them.
ingreedients in this chocolate bar are as follows:
milk chocolate 55%
partially refined sugar syrup
the milk chocolate contains:
dried skimmed milkcocoa mass
dried whole milk
there are quite a lot of ingreedients in this chocolate bar which are bad for you and is not particularly a great bar of chocolate there are a loyt of different chocolate bars on the market which are a lot tastier.
the upside of this chocolate bar is that it is cheap and is better than nothing if you have no other chocolate in it gives you a chocolate hit. chocolate is made by fox.
i have tried lots of different types and brands of coffee and in my opinion this one is definately the best its really tasty and reasonably priced too.
a jar of this coffee costs £2.87 and is well worth the money its a great drink.
the jar which i buy contains a 100grams and lasts quite a while. however i only drink two or three cups a day. the jar lasts me around two weeks which in my opinion is great value for money.
nescafe gold blend is a premium selection coffee which is golden roasted.
it is a well known brand of coffee which in my opinion is well trusted.
the packaging stands out with gold and white writing on the jar on a brownish background.
it has a gold coffee bean on the ppackaging aswell which in my opinion sums up the name of this coffee very well.
the packaging is very attractive and eyecatching.
the coffee is naturally rich in antioxidants.
a serving of nescafe gold blend gives0.4grams of antioxidants which is part of a healthy balanced lifestyle and diet(1.8grams of coffee and 200ml of water is classed as a serving).
you can collect tokens off the back of the jars which can be redeemed for prizes.
this coffee may not be to everyones tastes as i like quite strong and powerful coffee with a bit of a kick love this drink.
the gran tinerfe is an absolutely gorgeous hotel in tenerife.
it has a wide range of facilities including three pools and a gym.
the hotel is located right on the beach and is practically right next to the shops. its in a really great location.
the hotel has two poolside bars one in which you have to cross a bridge and its in the middle of the swimming pool which is very relaxing.
the other poolside bar is covered up but is right next to a big spacious pool which is also nice if you want to be shaded whilst you have a drink.
this is a four star hotel and when we were there they told us the only reason that it wasnt a five star hotel.
the hotel serves really nice food and the have a wide variety of foods which is good. for breakfast they have a wide variety of choice. they serve continental breakfast with a range of pastries and cakes. they also serve fruit and cereals.
they also serve a full english breakfast including bacon and sausage eggs beans and tomatoes. they also have a selection of fruit juices.
the evening menu also has wide variety they have different soups for starters and a selection of salads.
they also have a fish dish and a meat dish in the evening.
they also have a range of potatoes and chips.
a wide variety of vegetables is also offered.
it is really high standard cuisine and i would definately reccommend it to people. the hotel is available in half board which i find is more than enough and full board which in my opinion would be too much.
if you do need an extra snack during the day they sell sandwiches burgers and chips at the poolside bars along with a variety of other light meals.
in my opinion its location is great as it is directly on the beach close to shops and supermarkets and only a ten minute walk into playa de las americas where all the bars and clubs are.
the hotel is quite expensive but well worth it it cost me 1000 pounds per person but it was the perfect holiday. activities are offered throughout the day for both adults and children by hotel reps.
they also have a wide variety of shows on in the evening and bar is open relatively late the entertainment in the hotel is definately enjoyable.
the only problem with this holiday is not that many travel agents sell it anymore and it can be quite difficult to book.
well worth the price its a fantastic holiday i have been here three times and would definately go back. the staff really do make this hotel enjoyable
This is a really different dinner which is very nice only suited for those who like spicy food in my opinion.
I always buy the smokey barbecue flavour which is realy tasty.
it is very simple to make and a dish which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
You get the dinner kit which you can buy in supermarkets for less than three pounds. this contains the tortillas, fajiti seasoning and tomato salsa.
I dont really like chicken in fajitis so i personnally buy rump steak.
You cut the rump steak up into thin strips and fry with a little oil until browned.
once the steak is browned you add two chopped onions and two chopped peppers and the fajita seasoning which thickens up into a sauce.
you have to heat the tortillas up so that they are warm. i always warm them up in the oven as i feel that they taste better you wrap them in tin foil and place on a baking tray for ten minutes on gas mark four.
you can also heat the tortillas up in the microwave which would be quicker.
I can only eat two of the fajitis as i find them very filling however my partner can eat five of them before he cant eat any more.
when eating have a drink on hand as they are really spicy.
sourcream does cool the fajitas down but i do like it hot and spicy very nice dish to have.
it takes no longer than 15 minutes to cook which is very handy
On the go just like me is a brilliant book for smaller children.
it is written by jess stockham.
the book is really colourful with big words which is needed in books aimed at smaller children
The front cover is bright with green,yellow,orange and purple colours it really stands out in the bookshops.
it has a picture of a little boy and a monkey both climbing a tree.
the writing on the front is bold which is definately attractive to children and the parent who are buying it for them.
the book has fold out flaps which is really enjoyable with children as they feel that they can get involved with the book.
throughout the book the pictures are colourful and attractive which definately makes the story come to life better for the children.
each page has a fold out flap which helps the baby become involved with the story.
the book has bold writing on the pages which stands out to children.
each page only has three pages which is good as it doesnt overpower the children when they are just learning the words.
younger children will just like this book for the pictures as i have previously mentioned its very colourful.
there are three other books in the range which are feeling great,looking good and tucking in.
these books are also great for children.
