Me & Mine | October 2018

October seemed to fly by in a flash? It started off with some beautiful days, where you could go on walks in just a t-shirt and still be hot. The leaves on the trees turned a beautiful orange and red colour and conker wars were happening at Isla's school. As soon as half term hit the weather changed, in the past week the weather seems to have taken a huge drop in temperature. Its back to spending 10 minutes before you even get out the door to put your coat, hat, scarf and gloves on. Id say that's the thing I really don't like about this weather. We are all feeling a bit glum at the moment, but trying to look forward to the upcoming exciting things like Halloween, Bonfire Night, a certain little girl turning 6 followed very shortly after by Christmas. Its this part of the year that seems to go the quickest, October to January. 

Life lately has been busy in our household, well I say lately its pretty much 24/7, who am I kidding. I'm finding it hard to get the balance right between everything and everyday feels like I'm just trying to keep my head above water. I'm hoping over the next few weeks I can focus more on my blog and getting back into it again. Daddy has been adjusting to his new job and its nice as some days he can work from home, its so nice to have an actual grown up to talk to during in the day. 

Our big girl is finding the adjustment into year 1 a bit tough, going from mostly play and only having to read 5 times a week into work only and 3 bits of homework and spellings a week plus her reads. Ive never known her to behave so badly at home, but in all honesty I think she is just finding the new year a bit of a shock and overwhelming. Our Wild boy, well he's just crazy as ever at the moment, he is loving pre-school and we have noticed a slight improvement in his behaviour. Finally our baby boy, he's growing so much, October saw him turn 6 months old, and we could start to wean him which has been fun, he's so different from his older siblings and we are enjoying getting to know him and his ways. He has just started moving around and rolling on the carpet and it won't be long before he is crawling! 

Hopefully things can settle down a little soon, but until then we are just going to enjoy everyday and keep going. November is already looking to be a better month and we cant wait.
