A rare quiet day...

...without children until this eve (yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!). I have so much to do in the workshop, seems lots of babies have been born recently and what with Christmas, presents and fayres to think about, but it's been far too long since my last past, so the first thing on my list this morning is to recap the past month...

I recently took part in the rainbow swap, my colour was grey, and look what a fantastic package of goodies I was sent by Cal http://calscosycorner.blogspot.com!! So much loveliness, lots of crafting bits, a huge cushion cover that will look fab in our newly decorated conservatory, and a very funny Christmas survival guide! Thank you Cal, sooo pleased with all you sent me (hope the move has gone smoothly and you are settling in well xx) and thank you Lululiz http://lululizinlalaland.blogspot.com x...

Walks in the woods (and lots of tree climbing and leaf, twig and chestnut collecting!)...

A visit to the circus...


Little Miss left Infant School in the Summer, to start Juniors in September, so I asked the very talented Emma http://littlebrownrabbit.blogspot.com/ to create a picture to remind her of her time there. The school emblem is a rabbit, and all the classes are named after woodland creatures, so we had a robin, badger, fox and bunny. She was thrilled with it, so thank you so much Emma!!...

Little munchkin surprised us with independent writing on his blackboard...


Early Halloween fun - dangling doughnuts...
Bobbing apples...

Half term getaway...


Ending with a day trip to Butlins on Halloween (fantastic fireworks!)...
