Half-term and Halloween

So, recently I have noticed that alot of my posts have not really included much about the children. Probably as they were at school! Well, I thought I would show you what we had been up to over half term. You have already seen our trip to Slimbridge. This is what the rest of the week looked like.

Playing with cardboard boxes...
Lots of lego building...
Drum practice...
Making pictures with domino run pieces
Making domino runs
Castle building
Candle making
Candle-lit music filled evenings, that were enjoyed by all never wanting to forget them
Pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie from our own homegrown pumpkin.
WarHammer and sewing, can you actually see the dining table?
Glass lantern making
Pumpkin carving
And alot of excitement about "Halloween on the Green". Our communal halloween party.

So there we have it. Proof that the children are still around, having a whale of a time, chilling out, doing there own thing, and requesting not to go out anywhere!


  1. Love the dining table activity. Echoes of round here ;-)

  2. Wow, what a great update post, lovely lovely pictures. *squeek* We see you all again on Saturday!! I hope you can get them to leave the house for that. ;)

  3. You've been up to lots of things then, lovely carvings!


  4. Oohh looks like a fun week :-))

    Woohoo, looking forward to seeing you guys again on Saturday too :-)

  5. I love the look of Halloween on the Green. What a lovely thing to have communal gatherings, I wish I lived somewhere where where there was more of that going on. It looks like youve had a lovely week!


Pull up a chair, have a cuppa and some cake, and if you feel like it, leave a comment.
