Hello September, Goodbye August!


This year is flying by! Soon all the shops will be filled with Christmas and before we know it we will be seeing the new year in! I'm sure time passes by faster the older you get! 

So August saw the summer holidays pass by quickly, we had a few lovely days  out, weather wasn't great to us and the builders were around a lot so we were at home a lot more than we usually are in the holidays, luckily the kids and I are home birds and love being at home. 

School starts again in a few days, Riley and Keira go back a day before Ellie. Riley is starting in Year 1, Keira in her last primary school year 6 and Ellie is starting in Year 8 at secondary school. Keira seems to little to be starting secondary school next year, she seems so little compared to Ellie at the same age. I think it's because she's so petite and little for her age!

In just under than 2 weeks Ellie becomes a teenager!! How the heck do I have a teenager (or will have!). I can remember being a teenager myself and I'm not sure that's a good thing either!! I'm going to try and not be too hard on her and I know she will have to learn her own lessons but she's a sensible girl so fingers crossed the teenage years flow along smoothly!!

She having a pop story party with 10 friends and they get to record a song in a studio and each get a copy on CD. I would have loved to do something like that at her age, she's very excited! I'll post all
about it afterwards :)

We start back at Water Babies this Thursday which in looking forward to so much. It's been 6 weeks since our last lesson so I hope Lexie still enjoys it.

This month should also still the majority of the extension finished, so far it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be but then again they haven't even knocked through yet lol. The scaffolding people came today so our house resembles something from the krypton factor at the moment!!

Hope you all had a lovely August. Bring on the count down to Christmas now!!! (Sorry!!)

  1. It's going far to fast isn't it? Nearly a teenager? Scary stuff. I'm dreading that, although sometimes I think he is like one at 8.

  2. Nooooooo, Halloween is first :D That's the thing I look forward to most once August gives way to September! I don't start "worrying" about Christmas till about mid-November!

  3. I know that September feels like a Christmas countdown, but I find that there are some lovely pleasant late summer evenings to be had in September and early October so Christmas to me is still a good 'third of a year away'!

  5. There's loads before Christmas, thank you!! A pop story party sounds great fun. My daughter is 13 and it's great to see them grow up. All good (pretty much, so far...).

  7. I'm looking forward to establishing routines again, but I am not looking forward to the lead up to Christmas, because that means winter and that means snow!!
