Happy 1st of October and also the start of Blogtober. For the past couple of years the start of blogtober has always been a little all about me intro so if you want to read last years you can here. A year is such a long time so let’s have a little catch up.
A year on …
There isn’t a great deal of change to be honest. We are all moving forwards and everyone seems to be doing really well at school/work. Jack is now in Year 5 and this week is the start of the secondary school look rounds. It is scary to think that this time next year we will be submitting his application for secondary school. Jack is still at cubs and his jumper is getting covered! We haven’t spoken much about joining Scouts but that is all to come.
Oliver is now in Year 2. The last year of Key Stage 1. He has a pretty awesome teacher who will help to bring the best out of him. There has been a few little incidents amongst his friends but he is either a super sleuth or just not too bothered as he hasn’t been in trouble because of it.
The biggest change this year is with Arthur. He started school a month ago! He is loving being there and although we had a few hiccups those seem to have gone. Every morning now I am able to say goodbye and there are no more tears! He comes out of school with smiles on his face and he has just started telling me what he has been up too!
What about the adults?
This year Mark and I celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary. We had a bit of a whirlwind romance when we first met, so we also celebrated our 10 year anniversary of just being together too. I am trying to come up with some plans on how we can celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary next year so if anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them!
Now the boys are at school I am working full time on the blog. So far I haven’t been as dedicated as first thought, thanks to half days at school and meetings. However this week, I am planning on spending all my time on my blog and I have even written a schedule!
I am super excited to be taking part in Blogtober again. There are some pretty awesome prompts, (read here for a sneak peek). Until tomorrow….
Why don’t you have a read of other bloggers who are taking part in blogtober.
