And so my favourite month in the calendar is nearly up and we’re hurtling into our busiest 2 months of my year. The months where we already have something planned for every weekend and then a much needed 10 days off together as a family over the Christmas break. Before I get ahead of myself, lets focus on the month that was October
Oh autumn you’re beautiful, you bring the most striking sunsets and gorgeous skies, and I’m totally and utterly in love with you. If only you’d last longer, continue to provide us colourful scenes and ensure the grey skies stay away, that would be just perfect
I’m the one who is always planning our next big adventure and more often than not the hubster goes along with it, so when I told him in September that I’d booked a weekend away in a camping pod in the middle of October he looked at me like I was a mad woman…who goes camping in October? This family does!
We’ve had our National Trust passes for a couple of years now but it’s been a while since we went to Mottisfont. I offered J a variety of things to do on the first day of her school holidays and she proudly told me that she hadn’t been to Mottisfont for a long time, and wanted to go there Continue reading “Visiting Mottisfont in Half Term”
Every year since J has been walking we have been pumpkin picking. This year was no different, although we went armed with a wheelbarrow as I’ve learnt from previous years J likes to pick the biggest one she can find!
I’m really enjoying writing my weekly list and looking back over the week that went by. The weeks seem to be passing by so very quickly and I cannot believe that J will soon be on half term. We have some special things planned and I’m glad we get to have some quality time together as a family unit. Here are the things I’ve loved this week:
Life has been so busy the past few weeks I’ve struggled to have time out and record our ordinary moments. The past week has seen 2 conferences, training, birthday parties and an off colour J to start it off. That naturally slowed our evenings and weekends down but our little tornado of energy returned towards the end of this week and so we set off on Thursday to stretch our legs and play in the fallen leaves
I’ve been meaning to write up our adventure in the New Forest for a while as it was a perfect day prior to J starting school. We went to Bolderwood in the New Forest to see the deer and do the Gruffalo Spotters Trail, something we’ve done in Cheshire but not in Hampshire
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
Long nights, cosy knits, warm socks and a crisp smell in the air on a walk…what’s not to love about autumn? It is by far my most favourite season and I have a constant pull to get out and about and explore the fields, and to walk under the trees as they start turning gorgeous shades to represent the end of summer
