As soon as the weather gets colder, and the nights start getting darker, and I know the summer is over,  movie nights/afternoons become a regular occurrence in our house. There is nothing better than getting everyone snuggled on the sofa under a blanket – especially after a long day or an outdoor walk. Sunday afternoons in my opinion are made for dog walks and sofa snuggles. Movie Nights become that more exciting towards the end of November when the christmas movies come out. We have a huge cuddly blanket that my mum bought me last christmas from M&S, and that…

Every year the kids put their request in for carving the pumpkin – it is Daddy’s specialty. Over the years we’ve had everything from Mickey Mouse, to black cats. This year was Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas!   We had my best friends daughters first birthday party on the Sunday, the day before Halloween – she is a Halloween baby, so the kids got to dress up two days in a row.
