Me & Mine – September 2015

September seems to have whizzed by in a flash; I’m sure I say this every month, but I really wish time would slow down, just a little. We kicked off the month with a holiday on Exmoor with my family to celebrate my mum’s 60th birthday – it was fun to show Rosalie some of the places I had been as a child and I think she really enjoyed having Granny and Grandad around, especially since Granny gave her her very own back pack!

I don’t know why I didn’t think to take this month’s Me & Mine photos whilst we were away, it would have been so much easier to get my Dad to take them rather than grappling with the tripod and self-time! Oh well, I didn’t, and so these photos are again taken in our garden with me running back and forth between camera and rug.

After the holiday we were all adjusting to new routines – we get Daddy at home every other Friday now and the fortnightly three-day weekends are brilliant, but they do mean longer days at work the rest of the time.

Rosalie and I have started a new music class which we are still undecided about; it’s such a shame that the previous lady stopped as Rosalie started her class when she was just 4 months old and has really grown to love music and movement thanks to her. She has found the new class a bit unsettling and it is quite disorganised, but hopefully it will pick up.

We’ve also returned to playgroup, which is so much better now that Rosalie can hold her own. She is so independent and quite happy to wander around trying out all the different ride-ons, sometimes I feel a little redundant, sob!

In amongst the regular stuff we have been sprucing up our living room and I’m writing this sat on our oh-so-comfortable new sofa! We limped our aging car through its MOT, took Rosalie to get new shoes (and discovered she has skinny feet), planted our spring bulbs in the garden, had a trip to Ikea and a hairy moment in the car park with a chair and the size of our boot, and I have been on a hen do (the wedding is only 10 days away!).

Next month is a pretty busy month so I have no doubt it will fly by and I’ll be back here bemoaning the fact that time is passing too quickly! Enjoy October y’all!

dear beautiful.
