October was a month of highs and lows, more accurately lows followed by highs. Lu’s first term at nursery seemed to come around much too slowly for us. She spent most of October overtired and in really bad form. Needless to say, when half term came around we all breathed a sigh of relief.

My plan for the week was to do a whole lot of nothing. We spent the first four or so days not venturing far from home, some days we didn’t leave the house at all. We painted, watched films, played toys all of Lu’s favourite ‘off day’ activities. ‘Off day’ is a little phrase she has for any day we’re ‘off’. 8/10 if you ask her what she wants to do on ‘off day’ she’ll say stay home! Other than that we mostly pottered about, doing DIY, walking the dog and ticking a few more items off our Autumn to-do list.

Towards the end of the week we did go on a little adventure. My Mum booked us a Halloween treat of a stay at Jacksons Hotel in Donegal. It’s such a beautiful part of the world – somewhere we all love to visit. Jacksons had a fab half term deal on which included cinema tickets, use of pool and leisure facilities as well as a hot buffet breakfast. We had an absolute blast, keep an eye on YouTube for a new video of our little break soon!
