12 Things We’re Doing This Half Term

26th October 2015

Whoop we made it through the first half term of Seren’s school career. She only started 5 weeks ago, and only goes for a few hours a day but we are all tired and ready for a break! Andy is taking a few days off too so we can do some things together which is nice.

Our plans for the week are:

  1. Relax, relax, relax. Though the social schedule is filling up fast, I think it’s important we get some time when we are not rushing around.
  2. Dig out hats and gloves – there’s a real chill in the air now.
  3. Head out for an autumn walk to pick up leaves and conkers (and branches and pinecones to support mummy’s Christmas decorating plans).
  4. Write our letters to Father Christmas. A little early but once it’s written it’s set in stone, right? That way I can keep an eye on the requested items and hopefully get a bargain.
  5. Sort out the mountain of toys that we already have – they appear to be multiplying and there are hundreds of homeless small pieces. I’ll be honest this has been on my To Do list for about 6 weeks.
  6. Set to work on one of the craft kits that Seren got for her birthday. I’ll post some reviews of these if that works out.
  7. Go swimming – we have a pool party as well as her regular swimming class.
  8. Heading into London – not sure what to do yet!
  9. A trip to Willow’s Farm near St Albans for pumpkin picking (not sure who is more excited about this – Seren or I).
  10. Then pumpkin carving, Halloween decorating and crafting. I’m sure I bought some craft bits in the post-Halloween sale last year, I just need to find them…
  11. Dressing up and putting our scary faces on for a Halloween party.
  12. Finishing off the week with a bang in the form of a local (early) Bonfire Night firework display if the weather is good!

Have a lovely week if you’re off too this week!
