Its Officially Autumn | A Look Back On The Last Few Months

Tuesday, 3 October 2017

It has just dawned on me that it is full on Autumn time.  Is it just me or is this the fastest actual year known to man?!  It could possibly be the combination of watching the littlest child grow up and the biggest child start school, I mean, WHEN, literally when did this all happen??  

The positives of the fact that Summer is totally over, is that most importantly, I made it through the 7 week Summer holiday with two children.  Phew.  As much as I found it really blimming tiring we had some lovely adventures and good old times.



Having little day trips around Bristol with both boys was so lovely and was made some much nicer having my sister around who had the summer holidays off work.  Sister chats AND someone to help with the kids, total win.



One of my favourite things to do in good weather is hang out on my mums allotment, Charlie loves it there and gets completely stuck in - I can't wait until Louis can too, although he did enjoy eating the grass while we sat and watched mum and Charlie bumble around.  

We went there during St. Werburghs summer fair and it was such a perk of knowing an allotment holder, we listened to the music while drinking cider but without any of the hustle and bustle which can be sliiiiiightly irritating with two small kids.




I attempted Vlogust and did pretty well considering I was ill for half of the month and have a very poor track record with daily vlogging!  It was so lovely to capture some of our everyday lives though and I can't wait to watch them back in a few years time!




We celebrated our second wedding anniversary at Watergate Bay Hotel in Cornwall which was lushness itself, I need to go back but without the kids!





Probably my number one favourite part of the summer holidays was watching the boys become right old proper little buds, they are hilarious and really make my heart melt and make me cry with laughter in equal measure.  They are similar but so different at the same time, I have a feeling they are going to be a mischievous little duo as they grow up.  They are also both becoming complete daddies boys, which I'm not gonna lie, I love!  I'm not ashamed to say I love knowing when I need to get away for a bit of me time, they are both going to have the time of their lives with Ben.  What is it with dads being more fun?!

We saw family who we don't see enough of, both at my field in Cornwall and across the other side of the country where some of Bens family are, Charlie loves hanging out with his cousins and it makes me sad he doesn't see them more, they have such a special bond in the same way I remember me and my sister loved (and still do!) seeing our cousin too!





Something I wish I'd done more of is see some of my best buds, I have a few people I usually see once every week or two but somehow managed to go the whole summer hols without seeing them!  Totally unheard of for me, they keep me sane and its like having an extended family when you see your friends so often but I think the tiring world of motherhood to two busy boys 24/7 sucked me in for a while! 

Yey to Autumn - comfy jumpers, bold lipsticks, cosy evenings in the pub and crisp leafy walks with some crazy and hilarious boys.
