The birthday month is done and dusted for another year. Poor planning on mine and Mr. Boo’s part having all three children with November birthdays. Nevertheless, they all enjoyed their birthdays and between presents, bowling and tea parties they were completely spoilt. Another busy month with
Another busy month activity wise with a trip to Butlins, birthday parties, school events and the first taste of Christmas. We’re really making the effort to get out and about at the weekends rather than staying indoors.
Not much to report from me. I’ve just about adjusted to life as a WAHM, it’s refreshing to approach Christmas and not have to worry about childcare and shift patterns.

And that was our November, life is changing so much at the moment that I don’t feel as though I’ve recovered from the last change before the next happens.
