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.
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.
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.
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.
Time is such a funny thing, it can feel endless at times, then before you know it that season of your life is over and the days feel as though they have slipped away from you. Today marks ten years since I decided to step into the world of blogging. Creating Boo Roo and Tigger Too, highlighting my nickname alongside my then two children.
The month of two halves (school days and schools out for summer) is finally over. If I’m honest it has been quite an overwhelming month. Finding myself questioning whether I am doing the right things, saying the right things and working as much as I should. Feeling as though my to-do list is growing without me managing to cross much off it.
Time for this month’s #LittleLoves – Goodbye school runs, uniforms and packed lunches and a warm welcome to the summer holidays! July is always a funny month as in the first half I’m frantically attempting to tie up any loose ends before the school summer holidays.
