half term

We had a good week off together and kept ourselves busy meeting up with family and friends, dodging the wet weather with some success.
Some of the things we did included feeding the ducks and swans

Swinging from poles

and swinging in big swings.

A trip to the country park

for the annual Halloween trail.

A spot of seasonal thrifty shopping.

Of course the excitement which was building up all week culminated on Sunday when the pumpkins were carved, the costumes were put on and the front of the house decorated with al things spooky.

I'm not sure how many trick or treat callers we had, but we did run out of sweets. I reckon we must have had nearly 60.

What with it being half term coupled with my normal lack of organisation I am way behind with reading blogs.
I'm really trying to make better use of my time so I can do the things that need to be done and still have time for the stuff I would like to do. I know I've whined about this in the past but it something I want to get to grips with. Fingers crossed.


  1. Love that T shirt! We didn't have any trick or treaters this year,so Mr Boo had to eat all the sweets! Looks like you all had a great time. :o)

  2. We had sweets left over! You lot no how to have lots of fun! :0)

    I can’t get over how much they have grown. Good luck with the better use of time, I’ve been trying for years.

    I would email you but I’m on Ben’s computer, I thought you might like to meet up one day and have a look around Winchester and maybe stop for a bit of cake. Or we could wait for the Christmas market???

    Love Lou xx

  3. Better use of time ... isn't that the perennial problem in life, balancing your time between what has to be done and what you'd like to do! And then I spend far too much time here in Blogland, but I love catching up with everyone!
