I’m excited to watch the new Malory Towers adaptation which is coming to the BBC iPlayer today. It might make self-isolation that little bit more bearable. If it wasn’t for Brodie I would be devouring books – many by Blyton of course – but it’s hard to read over the cries of Mum, Mum, MUM, MUM MUUUUUUUUM.
Malory Towers, finally on TV

The best way to treat obstacles is to use them as stepping-stones. Laugh at them, tread on them, and let them lead you to something better.
Something a little more inspiring than my usual choices. This bit of advice comes from Mrs Brown, Jimmy’s mother. I’m not sure many of us feel like laughing at the current obstacles we are facing, but hopefully we can make the best of things and move on to better things in the future.
Have you tried reading Blyton aloud to Brodie?
Would he enjoy watching the Malory Towers adaptation with you?
He loves his stories but I don’t think much of Blyton’s would appeal to him yet. Perhaps Noddy in a while, though. If a TV programme doesn’t involve vehicles of some kind he isn’t really interested – plus I’d rather watch in peace!
