    The Me and Mine Project | November 2016


    November where did you go? The month we were really looking forward to as a family has flashed by in a blur. It’s time for our Me and Mine photograph again. Our weekends have been packed with family fun adventures and days out and we’ve had another brilliant month together so our photographs this month have been taken on the go during our days out.

    It’s not everyone’s thing but we have enjoyed all the Christmas festivities from mid-November onwards. We can only really enjoy Christmas festivities at the weekends in December so we don’t mind enjoying them early and embracing the decorations and the fake snow. Our tree’s not up yet though!
