Catch up and Giveaway
Hello to all you beautiful people. I feel like it’s been a minute since I last have had an update on the blog, life and a bit of general chit chat.
So how are we all? Are we enjoying the Summer break so far? Have you been anywhere exciting this year? Finances have been a real strain for us this year so we’ve had to make do with a few day trips out rather than a holiday. You’ve got to love it when your car doesn’t pass the MOT! It’s never an easy job is it! We all wished to grow up so fast, didn’t we? Besides that, we’ve still had lots of fun though and visited friends and family. So, it’s still been busy and enjoyable if a little more thrifty. If you’re running a little light on cash towards the end of the break. Or if you’re just struggling for some ideas to keep little hands busy. Why not check out these rainy day activities you can do at home. Most of them are free or really cheap. Including a homemade playdough recipe that’s really quick and easy so worth a look.
Here are a few things we’ve been up to during our Summer break so far.
With only 1 week to go, we also have a few more activities left to do. Such as a bit more baking and a day out together somewhere in nature just enjoying the last bit of time before routine kicks in again. We also have a cinema trip planned so that will be fun. I’m kind of ready for routine again if I’m honest. Back to normality so to speak.
Have you got all the bits ready for the new term? I had to buy two sets this year as my youngest is starting his first year in September. However, we are finished and ready to go besides labelling. I am so excited for my youngest starting but my heart is breaking for myself. I’m not ready to not have one of my babies at home with me. For 7 years I’ve been looking at naked butts, giving snacks and washing grubby cheeks for the majority of the day? I’m not sure how ready I am for it to be honest. Fewer butts are ok though (lol kids)! My Bobby, however, is beyond excited and ready. He keeps telling me all the activities he can’t wait to indulge in bless his heart.
My eldest is off into year 3 and I can’t believe how fast he is growing. It felt like yesterday he was a chubby and cheeky toddler. Now he’s nearly 8 and nearly as tall as I am. Going to school discos and after-school clubs. One of the most proficient readers in his class and has the imagination of a young Tim Burton. Yes, I am one proud mama, Nightmare before Christmas is one of our faves.
Life is moving at a fast pace and won’t slow down for me any time after September that’s for sure. Two big birthdays, Halloween and Christmas to name the big events.
Autumn and Winter
Blogging over Autumn and Winter is one of my favourite times as they’re my favourite months. Super cosy with candles and blankets. Hot chocolates, crispy leaves, fluffy socks and onsies!!! Plus you’re in the house more so I find more time to write. I find that a hot cup of tea, a good snack and something on in the background and I’m good to blog!
I have so much planned for the rest of the year. Including some amazing crafts for both Halloween and Christmas. Great classics from last year include Halloween greats like ghost bowling and some gruesome grub ideas for the little ones. Not forgetting the Christmas greats such as candy cane candy or perfect Christmas baths. Let’s not forget just general Autumn awesomeness. Some Autumn and Winter fashion and makeup. I’ve already got some looks in mind. With some great trends to share to keep you fashion ready through fall.
I want to do more baking this Autumn and will share all those little treats with you. I’m also wanting to share how to bring Autumn into your home and how you can do that. Baking is a perfect way to get you in the right mood and the house smelling seasonal. Lots and lots to look forward to and keep us busy. Make sure to follow my social media so you don’t miss a thing.
