Finally something good

5 Jul

My last few post have mainly consisted of pain and misery, finally we had some smiles in our household today.

Those of you that follow the blog regularly and are a friend on Facebook or twitter will remember Alice Sara’s Ice Age 4 video review. The video was her entry into the ice age 4 odeon junior reviewer competition.

I was really proud of her for taking part and it turns out the guys at Odeon loved her video too as she was one of the five runners up.

OK, she won’t be the odeon junior reviewer but she has won an amazing prize for her efforts.

An all inclusive Ice Age 4 Pirate family trip for four, to Bristol which will include:

· A two hour cruise around Bristol’s historic harbour and to add to the excitement, she will also have the chance to steer the ship!
· 1 nights accommodation in a 4 star hotel in Bristol, including breakfast
· £100.00 towards travel and spending money
· A fish and chip dinner on board the ship.
. Ice Age goody bag.

Plus she was greeted with a bunch of awesome Ice age 4 official merchandise when she returned home from school today.

We really didn’t expect such an exciting package which included an Ice age 4 mini scooter, water gun, t-shirt, activity pack and more.


It was lovely to see the smile on her face when she opened the box. It was a great surprise, especially following a tough few days.

I had to sit my daughter down and have an important conversation with her this evening. I wanted to be upfront and honest in regards to her future assessment for dyslexia. I wanted her to know that it didn’t mean she was stupid and what it really means to be dyslexic. I used the ice age competition to highlight how talented she is and boast her confidence.

So thank you to all that viewed the video and help my Little girl win an amazing prize that truly has put a smile on her face.

Lastly thank you to the guys at Odeon for running such a fantastic competition and for providing such a great prize. It really has helped to boast my little girls confidence.

For those who haven’t seen her video, your welcome to check it out below. I’ve also included her fabulous out-takes video that I promise will have you laughing out loud.
