I can’t actually believe that ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ – the classic rhyming tale of a family’s adventure to find a bear – is 25 years old.  Although it’s still not quite old enough to have been a book from my own childhood *cough cough* ;-) it still feels as though it’s been a […]

A day early again, but we’re gearing up for a rather busy month as the newest member of Team Kirby is due to arrive very soon.  I can’t imagine that the early days are going to provide much opportunity to get back into blogging, but at least it will mean there’s a new person choosing […]
