Me & Mine {October 2016}

I know I say it almost every month, but I feel like each month really does fly by so fast and of course, October has been no exception. I’ve been a bit quiet here on the blog lately which has mainly just been due to being really busy, feeling a tad uninspired at times but also we’ve had our fair share of Autumn germs too, which has thrown me off balance a little. I have lots of fab things to share over the next few weeks so hopefully I’ll get back into the swing of things in November.

October has been a wonderful month for us and we’ve made so many lovely memories that I’m actually feeling a little sad that it’s over so soon. We’ve been to two firework displays, enjoyed a few Autumnal walks which are always my absolute favourite as everywhere just looks so gorgeous at the moment! We also took our annual trip to the pumpkin patch and we even carved our pumpkins for the first time ever rather than leaving them to just rot on the side 😉 We then finished off October by having the lovely Alice and Amelia to stay for the weekend and also by celebrating our gorgeous nieces first birthday with a day at the farm yesterday.

Somehow we also managed to throw a few slow Sundays into the mix too which are always SO welcome in our household. Our life is quite fast paced most of the time so we’ve been making a real effort to schedule in a few days to just do nothing and it’s been just blissful. Most of the time these days end up being spent pottering around the house doing odd jobs but that’s totally okay with me, as long as I can do it all in the comfort of my PJ’s 😉

I’m bracing myself slightly for the month ahead, it’s always such a busy one for us as both Bella and I have November birthdays and of course the build up to Christmas really begins too! We’re having a little fireworks party next weekend to celebrate Bella’s third birthday but I’m not entirely sure what we’ll be doing for mine just yet. Although as long as there’s cake involved at some point, I’ll be a happy lady 🙂  We’re also off to Center Parcs at the end of the month so it’s definitely going to be pretty jam packed but I can’t wait!

This months Me & Mine photos were of course taken at the Pumpkin Patch, I know I knoooow, not very original but it’s much easier when you have someone else to hand that can snap a photo for you instead of faffing with the tripod. Of course in typical toddler fashion, Bella looks super unimpressed in both of these photos but I promise she was enjoying herself really!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely October too!

    It sounds like you’ve had a lovely October. I love the picture too, your pumpkin patch looks far more populated with pumpkins than the one we visited x

    Love the pumpkin patch shots! We went for the first time this year and I loved the photos we got. I’ve also been feeling so uninspired lately, fingers crossed we both pick things up soon. Thanks for linking to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo

    That pumpkin patch is epic! I’m with you on the mixed feelings over this time of year. I love love love it, but on the other hand there is so much going on (birthdays here too) that I’m always in danger of stressing through it all and missing the fun! That’s why I’m planning to start early this year and eat all the mince pies in November 😉
