We’ve now completed three quarters of 2017 and into my favourite season. It seems that everyone loves autumn too and I totally understand why although I am unsure how we’ve managed to complete 3 quarters of 2017 already
With J starting school last month we decided to stay local and in September we spent most weekends relaxing, with shorter days out and more time at home, allowing J to recover from full time school. She’s settling in so well and I’m one proud mummy
We had one weekend away towards the end of the month which was to see our good friend RH, visiting Chester Zoo on the Saturday and me visiting BlogOnXmas on the Sunday and it’s fair to say with a new bunch of routines and the school run the month was over and done with in a flash. Here are my favourite photos from September…
Pick your own, farms and family have all featured through the month and J is one excited child when it comes to pick your own, hiding in the corn and showing her daddy how to pick it. She also couldn’t wait for October before she could get her first pumpkin and so we spent an afternoon carving one at home
Prior to starting school she wanted to spend a day with her cousin and they were so sweet together at the farm, holding hands and playing as we toured the farm. We went to the maize maze which was so overwhelming for me but the girls loved it, and despite many rainy days it was a lovely month
RH was desperate to take us to Chester Zoo for the day and although I had reservations beforehand about it being ‘the best zoo in the UK’ it was a brilliant day out and we saw some of our favourite animals. I’m still yet to go through the photos properly but here is mine, RH’s and the hubster’s favourites. J’s is now the bats after going in the bat tunnel where they all flew past her and the hubster made a quick dash for the exit!
One of my favourite days was right at the beginning of the month when we visited one of our special New Forest spots. The weather was typically british, one minute perfect, the next rainy and we didn’t know whether to keep coats on or off, but it was great to be able to do the 3 mile route with J and it’s a day I know I’ll look back on fondly
I can’t let the month’s round up finish without referencing BlogOnXmas. Having been incredibly nervous beforehand I was really impressed with everything to do with the whole conference, everyone was so nice, the content was great and those goody bags at the end – oh my! There were so many brilliant sessions and I managed to do my first ever flatlay thanks to Lucy
October has a busy weekend every week, we’ve had so many birthday party invites we’re actually a bit overwhelmed although we have a small break away to recover during the half term. I can’t believe we’re almost there already!
