Me & Mine {October 2018}

Well October never disappoints. It’s my favourite month and it has been so lovely – especially as most of it was full of warm weather and sunshine, something I don’t remember having in October before.

We had so much time as a family this month with Dave having two weeks away from work and us all having a week away at half term and lots of busy weekends too. All of our photos this month were taken over half term when we stayed in a cottage in Wiltshire and explored the surrounding areas – mostly Somerset actually.

We went to Stonehenge, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole and Bowood House – and it was like tracing my childhood footsteps. We’ve never spent much time in that part of the country as a family so it was lovely to take the children to places I remember visiting with my parents years ago.

October saw me get another year old, it saw LP have her first junior school disco and it saw both LP and Little Man have fantastic parents evenings at school – I could not be more proud of them and how much they have embraced learning.

I can’t quite believe that we only have two more months left of this year – and only a few weeks until Christmas. The year has flown by and each month just seems to go by quicker than the last. October has been a lovely month. One that has seen us don our wellies again, dig out our wooly hats and gloves and switch our coats for thicker ones. It’s been a very quick transition from summer to winter and I’m now looking forward to hibernating more, snuggling in blankets and lots of hot chocolate. Thanks October, you have been lovely.
