Here in Wales, it’s our version of SATS tests for the kids and Caitlin and Ieuan are both a little nervous.  If your kids are going through the stress of exam revision, particularly at GCSE level, you might like to check out this post about revision and this post about coping with the stress.

Elsewhere, we’re looking forward to our forthcoming holiday in Devon and I’m already planning how much medication I’ll need to take with me! If you’re anything like me, the pre-holiday pilgrimage to Boots or Superdrug is a very serious affair.

The footie season is coming to an end and Ieuan is adamant he doesn’t want to do cricket so we’re faced with finding him something to get him outdoors and away from the Xbox!

Caitlin is still practising hard for her ballet exam and I’m managing to avoid all forms of getting fitter, as per usual.

I enjoy sitting around and reading too much!

As usual, there are some great books on the linky – and don’t forget you can always add your own to spread a bit of book love.

Don’t forget that I still have plenty to be won on my giveaways page and don’t forget my weekly problem page here.

Happy hunting for your free and bargain books on this link.

Have a great week!


Ex marketing professional turned family lifestyle blogger. I live in Cardiff with hubby Mat, Caitlin (10) and Ieuan (8).

    Thanks for this, I love a good bargain book. I recently picked up The Cows by Dawn O Porter on Kindle for £1.99 and it was so good I raced through it in 2 days.

    It’s been forever since I last picked up a book and got lost in it for ages, I need to get back to reading big time.

    I read most of my books through NetGalley which is free to join – I get to share them with my readers too!

    Good luck to the kids on their SAT exams im so glad we dont do these here but our children sit the 11+ entrance exams which is equally as stressful, so much for little ones
