Ah the end of another year *sits back and pats tummy happily* and what a year it’s been. It seems like an appropriate time to reflect , in my case somewhat whimsically, at the people that made 2012 such an epic year for me. Because it has been. Epic. I have made some cracking new friends, yes all from blogging, but real people who I have met, occasionally honked (I’m looking at you Liz) and generally had fun with. I’ve never been a popular sort and other than blogging friends I only have one ‘normal’ friend who lives within a 100 mile radius of me – and that’s my next door neighbour, Alex, she reads this blog sometimes so a big hello to her (heh heh that’ll freak her out!) Anyway what I am clumsily trying to say is that well thank you lovely people, thank you muchos.
Cheers to Papasaurus – it’s been an up and down year but it’s up now and long may the up stay up *fnarr fnarr*.

The Somethingosaur by Tony Mitton is the charming story of a young creature in search of his family, in a ‘where’s my mummy’ scenario. On his travels he asks some dinosaurs if they are his mummy. Eventually he comes to a big mountain with a cave atop, flames come from the cave but little creature is brave because he really want’s to find his family and home. I won’t spoil the ending but it is rather lovely!
The beautifully illustrated images engaged 3 year old Ozzy instantly and he loved the rhyming text of The Somethingosaur, it currently resides by his bedside. Queen Scamp,4, is anti-dinosaur but she too loves the book, especially when he finds his mummy, she says “that is so cute!”
