Our Month - October 2021


I am really disappointed at myself for how incredibly late this round up post for October is. But as I always say.. better late then never I suppose! When I look back on October the main focus for me is always the Halloween build-up, and the excitement of Autumn activities and adventures over half term. Especially as Jack managed to book the week off again, which really does make all the difference.

Of course I cannot mention October without starting with mine and Jack's wedding anniversary. We celebrated six years together on the 2nd October - both giving each other allll the sweet treats as the traditional gift for 6 years is sugar. We did have afternoon tea booked as well, however Jack didn't actually do too much research (typical man, right?), so it turned out the restaurant was actually in a retirement village. We almost wet ourselves with laughter when we realised, and then quickly went for a lovely pub lunch instead. An anniversary to remember for sure!

The rest of the weeks and weekends leading up to half term were a blur of school, ballet, rugby and trying to squeeze in some autumnal fun. Life really is just so busy when you have little ones and jobs to work around, especially with Jack starting his university course alongside too. We did make the most of some late October sunshine though with a gorgeous walk at Scotney Castle, and even managed to visit the Museum of the Moon exhibition when it came to our local area too! Not forgetting we went to Hastings to enjoy their bonfire night celebrations, just a little early, but still lots of fun.

Most of our fun was of course had over half term though. We went on our annual pumpkin picking trip - this time deciding to visit Lower Ladysden Farm, where we've been to pick strawberries for the last few years. We had two really fun Halloween days outs - one at Kent Life Farm (where the littles got to trick or treat, enjoy a tractor ride and a really funny science show), and another at Chessington for their Howl'o'Ween event (where we rode lots of rides, watched spooky shows and the littles even got to hold some creepy crawlies). I took Indiana out with her bestie for a halloween afternoon tea, we had a family party for all of the cousins at my sisters house and of course carved our pumpkins too. Parker even lost his second tooth which topped off his week!

October was also the month that another little member joined the cousin crew. My beautiful niece Margot was born on the 27th, with the chubbiest cheeks and so much dark hair. Parker is absolutely obsessed with her already, and although the girls aren't too bothered yet (surprising for Lilah who loves her baby dolls), I can't wait to watch them all grow up together.
