This plus that equals…. October plans
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about my plans for the coming month.
He is going to be four entire years old. I cannot handle how fast the time has gone. His birthday despite being at the start of the month i pretty my focus for the entire month.
I need to decide whether I’m going to bake or buy his cake. There;s presents to wrap and a few last minute things to check for his party but we’re essentially good to go. I just can’t get over how grown up he is getting.
Chessington World of Adventure
Our main present to L is to take him to Gruffalo Land. AKA Chessington. Ever since they started advertising the Gruffalo River Ride he’s wanted to go, so that’s what we’re doing.
We’ve also treated ourselves to one of the giraffe rooms, so I think his best bud Gerry will feel at home. I am so excited it is untrue. Plus we are also taking my in-laws, so husb and I can get on some of the bigger rides. Woop.
Poor old husb has got a bit of a short straw on the birthday front. Everyone is just concentrated on L. This year L’s birthday party is on Husb’s birthday, so he will get to spend his day at a soft play centre with lots of excitable children. He’s over the moon about this treat, obviously.
I’ve got a few surprises up my sleeve for him though.
All the parties
Oh my word. L has hit that age when we get birthday party invites. There’s literally one every weekend in October. It’s crazy. I’m not sure how he’ll react as it’s not something he’s done before. I don’t even know the parent etiquette, so it’ll be interesting.
Something Just For Me
This was on my list last month and I think it should make a permanent fixture.
Last month I didn’t do much other than take some time for myself to just recover a bit mentally. So it wasn’t exciting but much needed. I’d like to do something better this month even if it’s just a long soak in the bath.
