Me and mine {September}

I love the idea of summing up our past month as a family in connection with the Me and Mine linky.  I'm a couple of days later than the last day of the month, but look forward to joining in anyway.

For us, September has been a sad month, as the family all come to terms with the loss of my granddad, who passed away on 1st September.
But it's also been a month of milestones, with the First Boy starting at pre-school and me beginning my maternity leave. It feels like our little family of three is on the cusp of a brand new chapter. 

Here are the three of us, getting to grips with the timer setting on my camera. This took quite a few takes!  We are in beautiful East Devon, on our last holiday as a family of three.  We had a lovely afternoon out at Pecorama, with steam trains to ride and beautiful gardens to explore.

In September, I am loving the invention of leggings (comfort is key at 8 months pregnant!), new Autumn drama on the TV, starting maternity leave (yay!), Strictly Come Dancing, my new pearl jewellery, being very spoilt for my birthday.
G is loving school reunions, having more evening meals together as a family, building Marble Run with the First Boy, steak dinners, WBA making a good start to the football season.
The First Boy is loving watching Team Umizoomi on YouTube, doing things 'all by myself', Marble Run, baking cakes, caravan holidays, walking in the Autumn leaves, reading all the road signs, lots of cuddles, starting pre-school.

  1. Ahhh, thanks so much for linking up with us. Especially as you are about to start a new chapter as a four, how exciting! Sounds like lots of changes this month, and some sadness, but so much to look forward to. x

  2. Thanks Lucy. Now my second little man is here, I am looking forward to October's Me and Mine even more! x
