A Photo A Day In September | Day 30 | Autumn Hedgehog

Today brings us to the end of September. I wanted to have an image with a nod towards Autumn but the trees are not quite ready yet for taking photos of my own. Saw this on a search & thought i had to share with you this cute little fellow!

Thank you if you have followed this picture journey of September. It has been fun getting photos put up & I maybe will do it again some other time.

A Photo A Day In September | Day 28 | Tears Of Laughter

With a slightly daunting birthday round the corner (*whispers 4-0) I was wondering what to do to celebrate, Never one for clubbing & not keen on pubbing it either I decided I would try to be like a posh person & go for afternoon tea. I chose South Lodge Hotel ( Amazing ) & went with 4 of the loveliest people I know ( 1 was my mum so I have to say that but the rest really are ;-).
Not sure what I am actually laughing it but I do know it was a wonderful afternoon spent with people I don't have to pretend with at all. Thank you all for helping me to break in the nasty birthday more gently!

A Photo A Day In September | Day 28 | It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas ...

This won't please some people because they don't think Christmas exists until late on 24th December but I say "whatever" to them. I love Xmas & very excited to receive the Next Christmas catalogue late yesterday afternoon.
88 days to go ( The 10 hours etc are a minor technicality!)

Photo A Day In September | Day 24 | On A Shoestring

We really needed to sort out the shoes in our very small entrance hall.
This cupboard has done a good job for the kids shoes, trainers & other small shoes but we needed something else for Robs shoes plus my knee high boots. This rack from Argos at just £4.99 was a great solution. Now my hallway is all sparkly & free of random shoes... for now.

A Photo A Day In September | Day 23 | Hair Management

So, I'll book in for a haircut because my hair gets to that state where no amount of hair products make it look any better. Why then does it look the best it can the day before I am due to go??

A Photo A Day In September | Day 22 | Dear Diary

I have always been a geek when it comes to all things stationary & so it was  I got very excited when I spotted this diary in Wilkinson today. A 2014 Diary, a whole pad dedicated to notes ( oh the lists I can make!!!) AND it also come with a pen. I have died on gone to heaven - I may need to get out more actually.

A Photo A Day In September | Day 21 | Bubblegum Love

Having used my Mint Julip lip scrub from Lush it has finally been time to have a go with the bubblegum one. OMG!! I just want to get a spoon & eat the whole jar! Which I won't of course, that would not be very good for me... I could though...

Photo A Day In September | Day 18 | Breakfast

Today I am craving cheese & baguette - no I am not pregnant, I just read my book yesterday & they were having a picnic in the park with bread & cheese. That was enough for me to think about it for the rest of the day & until I could get to the shop this morning. The vanilla latte just fell off the shelf in to my trolley - not sure how that happened but i would have felt bad making it stay behind.

Photo A Day September | Day 17 | Pamper Time

The awful weather makes me want to stay tucked up indoors. If I find time (ie if Finley falls asleep before I do)then I will paint my nails with this new polish I got from Avon called Swift Sherbert.

Photo A Day September | Day 15 & 16 | An apology

Sorry for the lack of photo yesterday. I have been feeling quite ill this weekend & so yesterday I did not anything worth taking a photo of at all. Instead I spent the day finishing this book "The Hidden Cottage" by Erica James as it needed to be returned today. This post then has just the 1 photo to cover yesterday & today.

Photo A Day In September | Day 13 | Clever Boy

Bradley got his yellow certificate today in assembly. He only told us at 8am this morning. Luckily Daddy had not left for work so he was able to stay at home with Finley so I could do my proud mummy bit. What a lovely start to the weekend.

Photo A Day September | DAY 9 | Calming Moments

As today is the 1st proper week for Finley at pre-school & the drop off did not go so well at all I have decided my nerves need some more calming. I have turned to You Tube & some of my favourite Vloggers. At the moment I am watching ELAINE. I adore her vlogs & know that she will help me to get through the next hour so much better!!! Thank you Elaine!! xxx

Back To School | Photo A Day In September | Day 4

I know many children in England started back earlier this week but due to inset days Brad is heading back today. This time he will be in year 6 - his final one in this school before he heads off for bigger school (I am trying hard not think about this too much though!!)
