Me and Mine {September 2017}

Posted by

And that’s Q3 of 2017 all wrapped up. This month was heavily overshadowed by J starting school, with a lot of focus on adjusted hours and the dreaded school run. I used to think it was a myth that it rained on the school run but I’ve turned up like a drowned rat on more than one occasion!

I often sit and wonder what we’ve been up to in the month but this month it’s been easy – we’ve been enjoying the start of autumn, having scaled back weekends and evenings to allow J to recover from school. Towards the end of the month we had a ‘big’ weekend, visiting our northern friend for a catch up, a day at the zoo, and a trip for me to BlogOn Xmas

Our photos this month are sentimental to me, it looks like a ditch in a forest but it’s on a route where we took our little Lexi on her first walk, where we use to walk most evenings when we lived near to the New Forest, where we took J for her first ever ‘big’ walk, and where the hubster proposed to me

September marked our 6th wedding anniversary and it was nice to be able to have a family photo together in this special spot before continuing our 3 mile walk

In September…

Sherry loved:

  • Having an evening with my mum and J. We all went for dinner, a spot of shopping and it was a lovely evening
  • Going to my first ever blogging conference and meeting lots of lovely likeminded people
  • A day filled with autumn where we collected conkers, sweetcorn and even a pumpkin
  • (I also want to say everything the hubster loved because it’s been a brilliant month!)

Hubster loved…

  • Seeing J start school and settle in well and being able to help. It’s been a challenging and exciting month
  • Watching J excitedly watch and constantly check on her toy dinosaur which hatched from an egg – the excitement was amazing to see!
  • Our weekend away ‘up north’. Both days were amazing, highlights were seeing how excited J was watching the bats at the Zoo and visiting the Ice Cream Farm with J and RH while Sherry went to a conference

J loved…

  • Seeing the bats at the zoo. They flew across us, brushed her hands and she was so excited. The hubster meanwhile made a quick dash to the exit!
  • Making new friends at school and getting invited to lots of birthday parties
  • Picking a pumpkin. She was so excited when she saw them in the field. We didn’t intend on buying a pumpkin, but we couldn’t help it

Lexi loved

  • Visiting the new forest and getting very muddy! The dirty dawg!

October is always one of my favourite months in the calendar. There aren’t any birthdays but there is a weekend away, another blogging conference, time with cousins, a pumpkin filled day planned, fireworks, cosy evenings with hot chocolates, and of course fancy dress. It’s going to be a great month!
