This Plus That Equals…. October Plans

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.

October plans
My little boy is getting so grown up

L’s Birthday

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.

Husb’s Birthday

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.

Feeling Calm
I’m going to have days worth of over excited and crazy aren’t I?

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.

I’m definitely going to make some time for me this month

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.

Finally, I’m linking up with #TwinklyTuesday, #Blogstravaganza, #StayClassyMama and #fortheloveofBLOG

  1. Ooo a soak in the bath is an absolute treat isn’t it! We have such a busy sept full of birthdays so I know the feeling of having a whole month of focus! Happy birthday L 😉 thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday – sorry for the late commenting!

  2. I remember the times of weekends being all about birthday parties. They seem never ending, and loud, always loud lol.

  3. So many parties! But I’m glad you have taken time to focus a bit on yourself too or at least trying to. You really do deserve a bit of TLC. #TwinklyTuesday
