Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons – I’m definitely a colder weather girl – I love being able to warm up and hate feeling hot and bothered. I’m also a great lover of Autumn/Winter fashion and I’m excited to get back into my boots and hats and scarves. This is a list of some of the things we want to do this Autumn…. Go to a Bonfire and Firework display Go on Welly walks with Harley Look for conkers Carve a pumpkin (Daddy’s specialty) Dress up for Halloween Pumpkin display on the fireplace Puddle jumping Make leaf bunting Take…

Week 2 1st-5th August (This is a shorter week as we went on holiday on Saturday, so wanted to include our week away in one post) This week was again a very quiet week – I had in the back of my mind that we were going away on the Saturday, and so most of the week was spent tidying, cleaning and washing clothes. Monday started off quiet, but within two hours of breakfast, Izzie had given Ollie a black eye (accidentally). The rest of the day was spent having a catch up with one of my best friends and…

This week, we’ve been doing some redecorating. Painting the hall and stairs and spending, what seems like days on putting together a photo wall. Said photo wall goes all up on side of the stairs and it is huge. This meant we had to take down some of the other pictures so it didn’t look quite so crowded. We had a square canvas on one of the walls. It was a photo of life pre-my boys. Mummy, Daddy and Izzie. It also is the only photo I had of me when I was pregnant with Sophie, taken a month before…
