Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

because it is now officially autumn and it really does feel like autumn. We even have rain and not just my order in but pour down rain which adds to the autumn feel.

I’ve been enjoying burning candles, getting cosy, drinking tea and watching crap on TV which literally is a perfect way to indulge on an Autumn evening.

I’ve also planning on ome autumn activities for the boys because I enjoyed them but not too complicated because no one needs that stress do they!

I’ve also been loving taking photos of leaves falling, it’s just so pretty with all the colours around.

Also, been dusting down my knitwear of course because the temperature or lowering making it super duper cosy. I love the fact that the air feels colder now I may be odd but I prefer the cold weather.

Liked and loved December

Hey readers,

This month has been fun with the lead up to Christmas and there has been lots of things to enjoy.

I have enjoyed not doing the school runs and the break from all the information/letters. Trying to remember all these things is hard so it has been lovely to have a step back and have a much needed rest.

I have enjoyed Christmas and self indulging. I have loved eating some lovely food and appreciate the fact I ma in a position where we can afford food and are safe. Especially around Christmas time you forget sometimes that other people may not be so fortunate.

We enjoyed visiting Santa and watching the magic of Father Christmas.


I have enjoyed treating myself to some books in the sales that I have wanted for a while but been blessed with some money to buy them.

I have enjoyed the fog and darker nights getting cosy.

Hey readers,

My word of the week is :

This is because this weather we have been experiencing recently has been wet and dame right miserable.

I hate leaving the house when it is bitterly cold but still I have to do the school run, boo. I  look like a drowned rat, I am so cold after getting drenched in the wet.

It has dampened my mood, I feel a bit meh, maybe because it time of the month to boot.

Right now, I have no motivation, other then to snuggle down in a blanket and close all the blinds and forget about the world.

One thing I do love when it is so grim outside is comfort food. We have a pork joint and I am overly excited about that being cooked in the oven. I can’t wait to have gravy and mash. To me that is the ultimate in home comforts. Well and fluffy socks is the second winner.

Hey Readers,

My word of the week is:

Image result for freezing

because oh my word it is bloody freezing at night and I am terribly British and love to moan about all things weather related, why the hell not. Though, I am still refusing to turn the heating on until November, unless it is awful then I maybe weakened to do it. I am so tight…haha!

But I have enjoyed fluffy socks, cosy pj’s and dressing gowns. Cuddling under the throws and not really wanting to leave the home because it is so horribly cold with that eastly wind. I do quite like the feeling of being safe inside whilst looking out of the window at the grey clouds hovering around aimlessly.

I have also enjoyed recently buying a few bits and bobs for Halloween, it is so fun and the boys have loved wearing their Halloween dressing up outfits. My eldest has decided he is called ‘Bone Man’ as he wears his Halloween outfit with all the bones on every night. It is also glow in the dark so we have had fun running around crazy but at least it has kept them entertained for a little while.

​Hey readers,
My word of the week is

This is becuase it has slowly been getting that bit by bit darker, which I have been enjoying as it is my faviourite time of the year.

I have loved cooler evenings, watching more films, reading more, snuggles under the throws and pillows.

Anyway, I shall also mention my eldest who has started to really enjoy reading his books and learning to write his name. He loves reading his book fron school to us and his brother. There are as no words in the book and he just loves chatting away in great detail about all the things that are happening in the picture.

 As someone who learnt to read and write at the age of 10 I know how important it is and you could say I am a little more encouraging then  to help enjoy it. Though to be fair to the boy doesent really need much encouragement at all as he is has such much love for learning that I don’t have to worry!
