Roald Dahl

I just stumbled across this picture on Facebook and it put a huge smile on my face!

Who doesn't love Roald Dahl? Who didn't grow up reading his amazing books? Which Roald Dahl book is your favourite? Mine is a toss up between The Twits and George's Marvellous Medicine. I remember when I was a kid I took inspiration from George's Marvellous Medicine and used to make my own potions out of shampoo's and shaving foam while in the bath! When I was outside I would find a bucket and mix together mud, sticks and whatever other nasty things I could get my hands on. All to create Jenna's Marvelous Medicine!
 Isn't that what childhood is about? 
Getting creative, imaginative and a little dirty!?

When I have children I will be buying all the classics cause every childhood needs the Roald Dahl magic!


  1. What a fab picture with a great feel-good theme! I really must have good thoughts more often - I need all the help I can get in the looking lovely department!!
    Roald Dahl is a favourite of mine too, I love all his chidrens books, I think my favourite is Matilda with her supernatural powers.
    I also have the video set of his TV series of Tales of the Unexpected. Even though it's on video rather than dvd I would never part with it.
