The Me and Mine Project | September 2016

September has been a month full of change for us all. It was the month where our daily routines changed forever with Olly starting pre-school and the introduction of the school run. I’ve reduced my hours at work so I can be involved in his new routine and it’s been a huge change for us all, one we are still accepting and trying to adjust to.

In September, Mummy has

  • loved spending some quality time with Olly, just the two of us
  • booked tickets to see Olly Murs on tour in 2017
  • really enjoyed BlogOnMSI in Manchester and learnt lots
  • enjoyed getting her craft on and has made a start on her Christmas Craft Fair decorations
  • realised she absolutely cannot do it all

In September, Daddy has

  • enjoyed a trip to the Animal Sanctuary and made friends with Duke the Donkey
  • finally had his new Walsall FC shirt as an anniversary gift off the Mrs
  • being very proud of Olly adapting to life at school
  • cracked on with the next phase of his Masters degree

In September, Olly has

  • started pre-school and loves it (despite the tears when he gets there)
  • enjoyed a day at Thomas Land with Mummy
  • made cakes with Nanny Cooper
  • made his own pizza
  • enjoyed the Sea Life Birmingham with Nanny and Grandad Shilton
  • grown another centimetre and out of his aged 3 jeans!

With all the changes we’ve had to deal with this month, we haven’t really done that much in terms of being able to get some decent photographs. I quite like these photographs though, they’re us and show us as we are pretty much everyday.

October is a month I’m very much looking forward to. We have a couple of trips away, one to the seaside and one to the city. I’m off to a chocolate factory and a hair salon, Olly has half-term and hubby has got tickets to see England Under 21’s play Bosnia at the Banks Stadium. Exciting times ahead. Have a great October!

    These photos are great. I find the every day photos are often the best as they capture the real you. Just lovely xxx

    September definitely seems to be a month of routine and change and more of being close to home. Glad pre-school has been a hit though x

    Oh you do have some exciting plans for October, and it sounds like September has been pretty awesome too! I’m wildly impressed that you’ve started your Christmas crafting – I know I really ought to, but I’m in complete denial!

    The only way I can get O to smile properly for a decent photograph is by promising to let him pull a silly face in the next one! I love Olly’s cheeky face haha – he’s adorable though. October sounds like a fab month for you x

    Thomas land and sea life in one month would make my two very happy as well! Fab photos of you all.
