I’ve been revisiting all of my old favourite fairy stories over the past few months in preparation for all the reading we are going to do when our little person arrives. I’ve really enjoyed getting reacquainted with all of the familiar characters that I grew up with.
I was very lucky as a little girl, I had a story read to me every night without fail, and these stories formed some of my fondest memories. My all time favourite girly story was the Princess and the Pea. My Mum used to ask me every morning if I had felt a pea under my mattress during the night and I had convinced myself that I had, so of course I was a real princess!
Another favourite was Snow White, so I was very excited when I saw a big cut out in our local shopping centre for the new film “Snow White and the Huntsman” due out this summer. It looks gorgeous! It has the same producer as the remake of Alice and Wonderland which I loved!
