Lovely Things #19 – October 2016


Lovely Things

Welcome to October’s Lovely Things. Autumn has well and truly arrived and it actually felt like it was kind of overnight. One day hot and sunny the next day autumn was here. Suddenly I’m thinking about coats and boots and dare I say … Christmas. This month has mainly been absorbed with us all getting used to new routines and some exciting career news, but more to come on that in the next few weeks.

First Days of School and Pre School

September saw both of my children start new adventures. My son started school and my daughter started pre school. I was sad about this and proud of them in equal measures. It’s weird getting used to new routines, a combination of enjoying the freedom to get things done and missing them when they are not here. Aria is only at pre school for two mornings per week so that does pass quickly. It’s interesting things that I thought would be problems aren’t, and things that I didn’t worry about have caused settling in issues. They have both embraced their new adventures though and are doing really well, so for that I am proud of them.

New Car

New Skoda Superb Estate Car

Back in July we decided it was time to buy a new car. After some deliberating we decided on a Skoda Superb estate. There was a really good deal on brand new cars, so we decided to order one and this is the first time we have ever bought a brand new car. It wasn’t due to arrive until October, so I was really surprised to get a call last week from the dealer saying that our car had arrived already and was waiting for me to collect it. I picked it up on Friday and it’s so shiny and lovely. It has a panoramic sunroof which I absolutely love.

A Night out with Hotter Shoes

Just over a week ago I was invited to go to Reading for an event in the Hotter Shoes store. I got to learn all about shoes and I was really impressed with some of the styles and it was also great to meet some great some other bloggers too. I got to take home these fab purple boots too – how cute are they?

That was my lovely things from September – what are yours?

  1. I’m so jealous of you having a new car, it’s gorgeous! I don’t have any interest in cars but I DO appreciate it when it’s new and pristine! Love the boots and your gorgeous first day of school pics xx #lovelythings
