Life got in the way…so here is October

I’m sorry that I’ve taken such a long gap in writing but life and uni have well and truly take over.
I don’t seem to have a spare second to think at the moment with lectures, assignments, clinical skills labs and exams to study for, on top of looking after C.

My parents were away on holiday for most of October so I didn’t have the support I usually do from them meaning I had even less time, although she did go to stay at her dad’s for half term week meaning I could concentrate on uni work a little more.

C has been amazing through all the recent change of me starting uni as well her days in nursery going up to two full days and one morning. I cant believe how grown up she is now.

so I should catch you up on what we have been up to over the last month or so.

 October started with me and my best friend Danii hopping in the car one Friday evening and travelling to London to see the Happy potter and the cursed child play on the Saturday!
OMG I LOVED IT!

We had booked the tickets nearly a year before so had been waiting a long time for it.

In the middle of October Sam and I took C to crazy golf for the 1st time, she wasn’t overly impressed and I think it was a bit much for her at only 3 and 3/4, but I got some cute videos of her trying to hit the ball.

Then we started to get ready for Halloween 😀
We painted paper plates to make pumpkins for the windows. C loves to paint so it was a great activity and kept her entertained for a little while.

C and I went pumpkin picking to church hall farm not too far from Liverpool. I was a cold but lovely day and I got some of my favourite pictures of C this year, her playing in the hay and jumping about having fun.
We got 4 lovely pumpkins to carve ( 3 for home and one for her dad’s house)
C rode on a donkey, and had loads of fun running on the bales of hay.

Afterwards we went to MacDonald’s for tea and C had a lovely rainbow painted on her face.

C has started swimming lessons and already achieved her duckling award 1 😀 she loves swimming, and is already trying to do it alone ( she’s not quite there yet thought)

We carved our pumpkins for Halloween

and decorated outside the house, making a “crime scene” using chalk

Then on Halloween C got to wear her costume to nursery before trick or treating in the evening, she chose to be a pirate this year. She loved trick or treating, running to the houses on her own ( while me and danii waited at the end of the path) saying ” trick or treat” and ” happy Halloween”

She got so many sweets that she doesn’t need to buy more till next year!

Oh and in big news after waiting over 3 years I FINALLY have a new bed, It’s a king size ottoman style so plenty of accessible storage and is so comfy 😀

October was a fun month!!!

My parents returned from holiday at the start of November and I have been busy with lectures and writing assignments that are due this month, one 3500 word essay as well as a 1500 word annotated bibliography, both due on the 25th November.

I promise to update more as I am mainly keeping this as an online diary so C can see what she did and liked when she was younger, and so family can see what we have been up too.

October photo a day challenge – day one

I have done a few photo a day challenges and have decided that I am going to do one again this month, I will do a photo a day that coincides with the newest #FMSphotoaday challenge.

Not everyone will be interested in these post but I am trying to find a way to get my blog mojo back and this will help me remember to post a little more.

Here is the order of the challenge, if you are doing it too please send me a link so I can drop in and say hi.

So here is day one as well!

Something colourful 

Ask me about something colourful and the 1 st thing that comes to my mind, and probably any parents mind is toys!
Nearly every toy C has is bright and colourful and so in your face it hurts sometimes, enjoy the colour!
