That day again. 

“A house without books is like a room without windows.”
– Heinrich Mann

World book day.

I’m always amazed when teachers say you can really tell you read to your children and sad knowing that some children are not been read to on a regular basis if at all.

One of my daughters this year has said she would like to go as Mrs Armitage on wheels a character from a Quentin Blake book.

I got a txt from my wife asking to bring home a box from work so she could turn it into a bike.

She’s done a brilliant job.

Keeping a very excitable 5 year old from running around the house holding it has been the hardest part.

It can sometimes seem a pain in the arse when you get the txt from school reminding you to bring your child in a costume. It also puts a lot of pressure on some parents but the kids do love it.

Mrs Armitage. 

The snow queen. 

I’m not sure if I agree that some Schools ask people not to allow their children to come has super heroes on world book day. I’m not sure if it’s always laziness of parents sending their children to school wearing a hulk mask or an Elsa dress or a lack of imagination. Sometimes it’s life getting in the way.

So don’t worry if you forgot its world book day and the old faithful Elsa dress has come out again try to enjoy world book day.

I know your kids will.

After all it’s only once a year.
Be like Goggins, Live like Jay.
