With Summer officially over, October sees the change of leaves and season as Autumn is well and truly here. It’s time to think about getting the blankets out or turning on the heating.

There are also some little countdown clocks or week counters popping up telling us all how far away the Christmas is. Sorry I didn’t want to mention the C-word quite yet. Personally, I don’t like to think about it until after Halloween. Many of you are probably a little more organised than me and have already started the present shopping.

Hello October

What happened in September?

New school year

September saw the start of the new school year with both my children settling nicely into a new class with new teachers. Plus for the eldest a completely new school which also means a bit more homework.

Baby Keepsakes

Baby KeepsakesThe month also saw the launch of a brand new website www.babykeepsakes.co.uk run by the lovely Lisa. It has been dubbed the Not On The Highstreet for babies and new parents alike. The Little Craft Mouse is one of many sellers, so it’s a good place to look if you are looking for something a little bit different and extra special for a christening or that all-important first birthday.


October brings us
