Prepping for the Party Season 

18 Oct

Hi folks,

I love this time of the year… it’s easily my most favourite. The leaves are turning orange, there’s a chill in the air & the dark nights are drawing in. I just love it. 

Our spare room now resembles Santa’s Workshop at the moment. I’ve been in full crafting mode prepping for Halloween & Christmas. I’ve even started to wrap Christmas gifts too! Haha… I know I know… I’m super early! But, the more I do now then the more time I have to just sit back & enjoy the festivities. 

We decided this year we were going to set a sensible budget on how much we were going to spend on Seth… that budget literally went out of the window within hours. We’ve gone so overboard… but we just couldn’t help it. I keep thinking he’ll be our one & only… so why not spoil him 💙

We’ve bought him a gorgeous corner sofa for his bedroom. We’ve turned it into a reading corner. We were going to save it for Christmas… but we’ve given him it early. It just looks so cute in his room.



Along with pretty much finishing off our Christmas shopping… I’ve also started stocking piling in my pantry too. I’ve made a start on buying frozen party food. Crisps, chips & dips. Crackers, biscuit selections & chocolates. And of course… bottles of sparkles. I got a bottle of Bollinger for half price!!! I’ve also got some Moët I bought while it had money off. I always plan in advance, so when December comes all I need to buy is fresh & perishable items & then spend money on fun days out. 

At the weekend we went Pumpkin Picking. I’d never been Pumpkin Picking before. Seth had so much fun trudging through the fields to find the perfect pumpkin. I just love family days out, making memories.

We’ve got a few visits to meet Santa booked for December… the plan is to see Santa each weekend in December. We’ve also got our holiday to Winter Wonderland at Center Parcs booked too… I’m so excited!!! You all know that Center Parcs is my happy place. 

I’ve got a lovely blogging trip down to London booked for next month – Eeeeeeck! It’s exciting going down to London… but I always get a bit nervous too. I promise to take lots of pics… I’ll give you all more info about my trip soonly 🙂 And… I’m sure it’d be rude not to pop into Liberty too to check out their gorgeous Christmas shop.

Driving lessons are continuing on a sparkly high! In fact… I start manoeuvres in 2wks! Yikes! Can you believe that!? I’m starting with the dreaded parallel park. But… I shall remain positive! And I CAN do this! I tell you what though… driving with a bloody sat nav is rather off putting. It’s being added to the driving test come December… so that’s something I have to get used too. I’ve been playing lots on the theory test app – so I should get that booked in. I think there’s like a 6wk waiting list. 

I’ve had quite a few medical appointments of late too… urgh! I’ve not been feeling 100% really. But, I’ve been having some tests & I have a referral to a consultant up at the Hospital – so hopefully soon I shall some answers & a solution. Once I know more… I shall let you know. 

I’ve got lots of lovely reviews coming up too 🙂 so please keep checking back for those. 

As always – thank you so much for reading! 

Love & Huggles,

Hayley xxx
