What I’ve been loving in October

What I’ve been loving in October

I wasn’t planning to write this post as truthfully October was tough and at one point thinking over the month made me just feel a little sad – Alfie started nursery, I returned to work and my girls have had a little trouble in school. However after a lovely week with my girls it has definitely gave me a little perspective and I am I ready to think of some of my October high points.

Pumpkin picking

We spent a day at Hawarden Farm Shop picking pumpkins and some pears. We had some lunch, we played in the park and had such a lovely day. I also managed to get some beautiful pictures – who doesn’t love a pumpkin picture.

Alfie started nursery

Whilst it makes me so sad that my maternity leave is over and Alfie has started nursery. I am so happy that he has settled in so easily which definitely puts my mind at ease. He really is the happiest most chilled out baby and I feel so lucky to have him.

Disney On Ice

We went to Disney on Ice which was amazing!! My girl dressed up in their princess outfits which were kindly sent to us by Party Delights and we all went to Manchester arena to watch the show.  Whilst we loved it I am not sure if Meme will want to go anymore – she is getting to that age where she no longer like princesses or watching Disney movies. However, I am pleased we got to experience the show together especially as it may be our last.

Half Term

The last few days of October seen our half term start and oh how we needed it. We were all tired and emotional and a little bit of time together was just what the Dr ordered. We usually fill our school holidays with play dates but this one I felt that we all needed a break so it was pretty much just us, which was perfect. I also managed to spend a day with my girls whilst Alfie was in nursery and it was nice to be able to give them all of my attention.


One of my girls favourite time of year – we went trick or treating with their cousins, ate far too many sweets and had lots of fun!

So onto November and we all know what that means….the build up to Christmas!

  1. I’m sorry you’ve had a tough month and I hope things are all good in school for the girls now and you’re settled back into work and the nursery routine. I’m glad you managed to find some high points in the month. When we were at Disney on Ice, there was a group of adults in front of us enjoying it without children, so you may find that Meme still enjoys it as she gets older, I’m hoping that my two do because I enjoy it myself!

  2. I am so glad you were able to find the positives, it can be easy to right off a month and even a whole year when we have some difficult times, but there are always positives when we search. Look at Alfie in that little hat my goodness he is too cute! I am glad he has settled well. Disney on ice is amazing, I took Aspen many years ago when they were in Melbourne, such talent! Thank you so much for sharing this with #mg linky Hope November is full of more positives for you xx

  3. I am sorry you had a hard month – I feel October was hard too. But if one were to judge by those beautiful shots, all looks well. Here is to a better November for us all! Happy Happy! #mg xoxo

  4. Funnily enough I hated Disney on Ice, my kids were bored half way thru it! We love pumpkin picking and Halloween tho! #kcacols

  5. Sounds like lots of fun. I want to go see Disney in ice since my friend recommended it. Sounds fab. Thanks for linking up to #KCACOLS best of luck returning to work. Hope it goes smoothly.

  6. I’m glad that even with the rough spots you can remember what was good about October. I had a really stressful summer but mostly I think about all the fun we had. #kcacols

  7. I’m so glad you still managed to find so many good things to write about! I swear sometimes it just feels like all the crappy stuff happens at once doesn’t it?! Hopefully your November has been so much better!
