    Me and Mine September 2015

    September has been a month of getting back in to a routine following the fun of the summer holidays. Although Little Mr isn’t in a routine with nursery or pre-school, as he goes to his Grandparents on alternate days throughout the week whilst we’re at work, he knows the routine of being at their homes and all the usual things that they get up too and this really helps him sleep better of which I am very grateful.

    Although we’ve been busy this month we haven’t really had chance to take any family photographs. This monthly photograph was taken towards the end of the month on a lazy Sunday afternoon in between getting some house jobs done.

    October is set to be another busy month for us all, the nights are drawing in and we’re filling up the weekends with plans to make the most of family time. I’m hoping to schedule in some time away with the boys during October half term to enjoy a few days away seeing something different and enjoying each others company. Bring it on!
