For my latest 'Words'- my favourite quotes on my favourite photographs, I have chosen this one...
I have always loved to read.
When I was little I used to love getting read a bed time story by either my Mum or my Dad. Then when I was old enough I would spend hours in the library choosing books to take out on loan.
As I got older I was much the same, before children and blogging, one of my favourite past times was to sit and read my book and I used to get through at least a book a week- on my honeymoon I took 12 books and read them all.
Nowadays I don't get as much time to read, although I always still have a book on the go. I am too busy being a Mum, or blogging, or taking photos, or reading other blogs. But every now and again I take a night off the computer and read my latest novel.
By far my favourite moment of the day is when my girl's are all bathed and clean, smelling of their lavender bubble bath, and the four of us snuggle on the bed and read a story, I love that special moment of the day when they are sleepy and we relax together.
I love that Mads is becoming a book worm, we read her a story every night and then she takes another book to bed to look at herself before she goes to sleep.
I can't wait to introduce them to some of my favourites that I used to love when I was little- the Roald Dahl stories, and Enid Blyton. My absolute favourite when I was growing up was 'The Faraway Tree'- I would make my Mum read it over and over again, and this is one in particular that I cannot wait to read to them.
I want them to get lost in a world of imagination, fun and make believe.
Where fairies exist, prince's slay dragons, and troll's live under bridges.
A world of adventures.
After all that's what childhood is all about.
