Goodbye October

When I wrote Goodbye September I mentioned how busy it had been but looking back I feel like October was in the wings, chuckling away to itself thinking you've seen nothing yet!

October has been very busy on the home front, with committee and parents evening, volunteering at school and my usual Snowy Owl duties and much, much more. We have found the time though to finish my little office, although there already seems to be a squatter in my comfy corner!

October brought a very Halloween vibe to the blog and as always my aim has been to bring affordable crafts, bakes and activities, meaning whatever the budget people can enjoy the seasons or events. 

My hauls are from bargain stores and our costumes and food homemade, and I try to do them as cheap as possible.  That was one of the reasons I was excited to work with the team at B&M on this foodie post, Toffee Apple Bread and Butter Pudding

I've also done a couple of Fibromyalgia related posts, with one of them being the first guest post to my blog. Life In A Breakdown blogger, Sarah, shared her Fibro experience, and I shared how I'm strengthening my core

The end of the month brought our first ever half term and I have LOVED having our boy home! I will miss him so much when he goes back to school and it seems crazy to think his next break will be Christmas!! 

Speaking of Christmas, my last post of October is that it's OK to say no, especially during the rush of the festive period. 

So, as we turn towards Christmas it's time to say goodbye October, hello November.
