I say it every single month, and I'm going to repeat it, how on earth has another month flown by already? Since having Freddie, the months are just flying by. The days feel long but the months are flying. Although it's scary how fast time is flying by, I'm also so excited that we are getting closer and closer to Christmas. We have a few things happening this October, so I am sure this month will just fly by too. Another reason I'm excited for Christmas is that we have a week stay at Bluestone again and I'm super excited for it, the stay is also over Mia's birthday which will be nice.

Back to September, I was quite worried that we weren't going to be able to do many things as a family this month. Mainly because of my partner working on weekends and then Sundays becoming our kind of lazy days but the weather has been lovely most weekends and my partner didn't work one weekend - which is always good. Seeing as we hardly ever get time to spend together as a family during the week, I really do treasure those weekends. The only time we can have a full day together. If the weather is nice or just a little gloomy, I always try to think of somewhere, we can all go for the day or a few hours, so we're not spending a nice day indoors. Also to make some memories for us all.

At the beginning of the month, we went to Gypsy Wood, and I was so happy that Mia was with us that day. It was one of the last weekends that the place was open until it closed for the rest of the year to re-open next year. It was a few years back when I took the girls there last on my own, and it was the first time for Freddie and my partner to go, and they both really enjoyed themselves. I am still shocked to how much Freddie loved it there. He walked for at least 3 hours or more, fell into mud countless of times and just loved every single minute of the day. He was in his glory.

Before Gypsy wood, we went to Sea Zoo on Angelsey as a last minute decision. I love those days where you're in the car, and you haven't a clue where you are going, but it turns out to be an amazing day. We went around pretty quickly, but the outdoor area made it all worth it. Mia was in her Dad's so wasn't with us that day. Elliw and Freddie really enjoyed themselves, and Freddie was amazed by the fish.

We took the kids to Penmaenmawr last weekend, a place my Dad used to take my brother and me when we were younger. The last time I went, there was when the girls were really young. We didn't plan to go there, but we wanted a walk after doing some shopping at Primark in Llandudno. Again, Freddie walked the whole way and back, we didn't bother taking the pram out of the car. It's mad how different he is to the girls. He was obsessed with a dog that was there with its owners and even stroked it, he also had a lick from the dog which was hilarious, but I love how confident he is with animals. It was lovely watching Elliw come out of her shell and running around too. It takes her a while to feel confident and to just run around as she normally just walks near us and doesn't play on her own, so it was lovely to watch her feel free.

To end the month, I went attended a blogging conference in Manchester. BlogOn Xmas was my first ever blogging conference, and I was a nervous wreck, but I met some lovely bloggers and had an amazing day. I'm really looking forward to next year and absolutely loved everything that I had in the goody bag that we all received.

I have loved this month, we've managed to do a lot of things - theres me thinking we weren't going to do much. October is going to be quite busy with birthdays and a date night away to do the Christmas shopping (yes!) but otherwise I am going to try and sort out the back room of our house to transform it into my office, as well as trying to sort out the girls bedroom. Hope you all had a lovely month.
