Each month I share my #littleloves, a chance to reflect on the things that I have read, watched, heard and made. As well as highlighting what I’ve worn and any other highlights in my life. It’s not about the big things, it’s about all those small little loves that make up everyday life.
After making the most of various book series’ last month, I had made the goal of crossing off some of my ARC books from my What I’m Kindle Reading to-do list. I’ve been partly successful in crossing a few of these off my list and would have liked to have crossed more off.
October always feels like a turning point for our family adventures and life events. After the come down from the summer and reality if back to school hitting us the last week or two of October signals life ramping back up again for half term and Halloween festivities. Easing us into birthday month and then Christmas.
I honestly feel as though I have spent the entire month chasing my tail. The days and weeks gave all merged together and I’ve spent my time fighting fires rather than making progress. This being said it has been a fabulous month with attending BlogOn and getting to see the friends in my computer in real life.
Book series’ once again my favourite way to escape real life, enjoying the continuation of the storyline and characters over a few books rather than crammed into one book.
With us all back into our school/work schedules October’s monthly goals are all going to be centred around the home organisation – mainly around the house in preparation for the birthday and Christmas season.
It feels strange to sitting writing this #LittleLoves update almost a week before the end of the month. With next Friday the beginning of October (how did that happen?) it means that my monthly update on the little things that have brought smiles, laughter or happiness to my life is earlier.
Thankfully taking time to indulge in my reading in the evenings when the children are in bed. Taking this opportunity to cross off several book series’ off my reading list. Finding them drawing me in and wishing to squeeze in an additional chapter or two.
As quickly as the school summer holidays came, they are once again almost over for another year. With the weather changing every day, we have had days where it has been hot and muggy, days that have been so wet it could have easily flooded. Along with days where the wind was so cold and bitter that I longed for my collection of Joules scarves.
I’m not ready for the summer to be over just yet! The countdown to back to school has begun and whilst I know the kiddies want to see their friends etc. I want to keep them to ourselves so we can enjoy more family adventures together.
