Last day at the Ploughing. As always a massive thanks to Adam’s Army who came to my rescue during a tough week for all involved with wind, rain and cancellations. But as we all know, when you’re stocked up with Love Hugs and Kisses you can get through anything with a big smile and all ends up OK.
Thanks to everyone for your amazing support and kind words of encouragement during the week. Benji
Adams Cloud was live.
Well It could have been a lot worse and nothing Love, Hugs & Kisses can’t fix. At least my Irish Book Award survived storm Ali at the National Ploughing Championships can’t say the same about the TV though. I’ll be back with a big smile tomorrow and Friday so come along to the Dolman tent ROW 29 Block 2. Or visit www.adamscloud.com for Ireland’s favourite children’s books 😍🤗😘 Benji
Thousands of cars all leaving the cancelled National Ploughing Championships at the same time through a single farm gate. This could take a while. 🤗
Reporting live from the National Ploughing Champions in total lock down. At least you can still get books and Adamscloud.com the website is still open for business. Yay!
The calm before the storm! There is going to be over 300,000 people here at the National Ploughing Championships over the next 3 days.
That’s a lot of Love, Hugs and Kisses. I’m in the the Dolmen arcade row 29 Block 2. I hope you can come in and say hello. Benji 😇

How best to tell your child they are going to be a big brother or sister!
There are few things in life that are more special than learning and sharing the news that “We’re Going To Have A Baby!” But how can we make the news extra magical for a big brother or sister who are not quite sure they are ready to share mum and dad with a new baby brother or sister.
Well, here is a little story of how I think the sentiment behind “When You Were Born” can help plant a little seed in your child’s happy mind to make them feel very special and important during the loving preparations for the arrival of a new baby brother or sister.
When an expectant mum arrives at my bookstand with a little toddler who likes my books I love to fuss over them and get excited for them that they are going to be a new big brother or sister.
Thinking of how children choose their parents in “When You Were Born” I hunker right down to their level and say. “Oh my goodness! Do you know the way you chose your mum and dad coz they are the best mum and dad in the whole world?” As I grab their attention they look me straight in the eye and nod silently in agreement. “Well do you know the way your mum is having a new baby?” A lick of a sticky lollypop usually accompanies another nod and a delicate shy “yes” slips from their lips.
“Well! Do you know that right now a new little baby is not only choosing the best mum and dad in the world they are also trying to choose the best ever brother/ Sister in the world and do you know what else?” Another lick of a lollypop precedes a more confident expression “What.”
“A little baby is going to choose YOU to be their big brother /sister and need you to love them and mind them and play with them and be their best friend, which makes you a very important person in their life when they arrive.
And then the magic happens. The lollypop is pulled from their mouth with a loud pop. Their eyes grow wide, they stare for a moment as the news filters through and then, filled with thought and curiosity a happy smile climbs up their little face. Excited about this idea the lollypop holding hand reaches blindly backwards instinctively knowing that mum is right behind them. Contact is made and then they turn, grab mums leg and snuggle in with a massive hug and a magical moment is born. A seed full of excitement and happy anticipation is sown that, with love and nurture, will grow into a loving bond between siblings even before the new baby is born.
For copies of When you were Born, Before you Sleep and all 9 Adams Adventure books just hope on to www.adamscloud.com for books that bring families closer with love, hugs and kisses.
Marriage is a magical adventure filled with Love, Hugs and Kisses. So, I was thinking.
Could "Before You Sleep" be the ultimate wedding gift as well as a gift for children?
With a little reminder to all couples, embarking on their magical journey through life together, to tell each other how much they are loved each night before they go to sleep.
You see, the big people in our lives need to be told they are loved just as much as the children in our lives and the more we say it to each other the better.
So, keep love in a bright open sunny part of your heart and home. Water it, feed it and enjoy watching it grow together.
With Love, Hugs and Kisses to all the worlds newlyweds,
Hello! My daughter and I love to read all of your books. She has been HOUNDING me for the jigsaw puzzle that we see in the back of each book. I noticed that it is Out of Stock. Will these be back in stock in the near future? Would love to get her this for Christmas.
All set up with Adam by my side and our new Point Of Sale book shelf for all the shops at the Autumn Fair trade show in the NEC Bermingham. Hoping to sign up a massive retail chain of shops and fill them with Love Hugs & Kisses. You can also grab a deal on gift sets on www.adamscloud.com
Lots of love and have a great weekend Benji
Please let that be the ship for 8 o’clock sailing to Holyhead 😁. Big week ahead this week. Travelling to the Autumn trade fair at the NEC in Birmingham hoping to sign up some new retail customers to help spread the love hugs and kisses around the world. Have a great weekend everybody. Benji
To all my budding little readers (and their mums and dads) here's wishing you the very best of luck, happiness and friendship on your return to school. If any of you are feeling a little nervous and are worried about making new friends, well, here is a little thought I had that just might help. Why not pack your favourite Adam book into your school bag. This way you can be sure that Adam will watch over you, from his cloud, on your big day and help to make everything OK and maybe give you a little bit of extra confidence and you can be brave like Adam is. Maybe there will be another boy or girl who has an Adam book in their bag and you could become friends because you both have an book and you can talk about your favourite one. If they don't have an Adam book well thats OK too, because then you can tell them about how Adam thinks that being nice to each other is very important and how happy he would be if you became friends. That way you will help spread Adam's Message of the importance of Love & family time together and that would make Adam very happy too and that would be a great positive way to start school and make lots of lovely new best friends forever. Good luck.
With big hugs and lots of love and best wishes

A Special Message!
Dear Adam's Army,
As last week was "Adam's week" I was lucky to be able to take some time out with Jackie and recover from an emotionally draining busy summer promoting all around the country. In the run up to Adam’s Anniversary I laughed, cried, hugged and listened to so many wonderful people who kindly shared their stories with me. Stories about how they have enjoyed my books with their family, stories of how they have sent the books around the world helping to spread Adam’s message.
Some stories were harder to hear than others and all I wanted to do was to take their pain away and make everything Ok for them. But for some all I had to offer were tears and a hug from a stranger. But what struck me about all of these wonderful Mums and Dads Granny's and Granddads I met was that, no matter what their story, they all radiated a warm smile filled with an immense sense of love, emotion, inspiration and devotion to their families.
I don’t know if smiling is just our way to hide our worries or maybe we can smile because we take time to notice and cherish the special little people in our lives that make us happy.
The essences of Adam’s Message is that children help us to smile and the more we smile the happier they are too. If we give them the time, and let them, our children can take us gently by the hand and bring us to their magical innocent, timeless little world of happiness, unconditional love and peace, even if only for a moment.
Probably a romantic notion, but I do like to think that when people buy my books they are not only buying them for the children in their lives but also for themselves and for their families to share a special moment together. It is this thought that keeps me going to know Adam was here for that reason and that this is his gift to the world. So I suppose the reason for my post today is to simply say thank you, Adam’s Army for every comment, every story, every tear, every hug, and every message of encouragement and support and for letting me know how Adam’s message and my books have books have touched your families in a positive way. For that I am truly blessed and humbled. It is you who give me the encouragement and confidence to keep going while together we continue to change the world with 3 simple words.
Love, Hugs & Kisses.
