This Week’s Favourites

This Week's Faves 27:10

Wow, two parties in one day! First the Maison Bentley Style Blog Party hosted by the fabulous Kate – such a great idea and I met some lovely bloggers. Thank you so much to everyone who stopped by A Spoonful of Style – I really enjoyed spending time with you all and look forward to following your blogs.

Then, it was time for Casper’s seventh birthday bash, a swimming party for 12 of his friends at our local gym. All the kids were exhausted and high on sugar (should be an impossible combination but believe me it is not!) by the end of it so I think we can safely say it was a huge success.

I’m pretty tired now myself but feeling cosy wrapped up in a blanket on the sofa with candles lit on the mantlepiece as a big storm brews outside. So here’s just a quick recap of the week that once again went by in a flash:

1. On Tuesdays and Fridays when Clemmie doesn’t go to preschool my husband takes the boys to school so we can just chill out at home.

2. I am quickly becoming addicted to the Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks and looking forward to the Gingerbread Lattes appearing on the menu in the run-up to Christmas.

3. We went shopping for Halloween costumes and Clemmie decided she would rather be a princess than a witch. Fine by me, the only problem is that the costume sheds glitter EVERYWHERE – the floor, the sofa and my clothes are covered in it.

4. This scary zombie (also known as Cameron) had a great time at his school Halloween disco.

5. A birthday party means lots more presents and an insane amount of Lego sets to build. It will keep Casper busy over half term!

6. Halloween is fast approaching and this morning we went to a nearby farm shop to get our pumpkins. We will be hosting a Halloween party for a few friends on Thursday before we go trick or treating around the neighbourhood.

Next week is half term so all the children will be at home but hopefully I should be able to find some time for blogging as well.

Have a great Sunday night. X

  1. Wow, a swimming Birthday party? Sounds so cool!
    Clemmie is a beautiful princess!
    That zombie is scary! πŸ™‚
    Your muffin and Latte look sooooo yummy. We don’t have a Starbucks in our city 😦 I would love to try out the Pumpkin Spice Lattes and the Gingerbread Lattes:)
    I know what you mean by the Legos:) Some of them are so time consuming to build πŸ™‚
    I love the photo with the pumpkins:)

    • I only discovered the Pumpkin Spice Lattes a few weeks ago but they are yummy! At least the Lego keeps them away from the TV. The pumpkins have now been designed and ready for carving this evening. Hope you have a great day x

  2. Hi! Sorry I missed you at the party… was crazy fun wasn’t it? I’m really glad you found me… now that I (sort of) recovered, I can finally start enjoying your pages! Mmmm, that latte is exactly what I need!…

    • It was a fantastic party! The latte was yummy. Unfortunately we don’t have a Starbucks in our village so I have to go to the next town to get one. But maybe that’s a good thing, otherwise I’d probably indulge every day! X
