Life: October Update!

I can't quite believe I'm writing this post, to be honest. It seems impossible that we are at the end of another month already; let alone that we're nearly at the end of October. There's, what, only 7 weeks till Christmas now? And I'm feeling totally unprepared! Anyone else?! October was okay, quiet, but I think we needed that, to be honest. November is shaping up to be pretty exciting though, with quite a few things lined up already; a cinema trip to see A Streetcat Named Bob, buying (and playing, for hours) the new expansion pack for The Sims 4, a talk and book signing by Jodi Picoult, and Fireworks Night, of course! But for now, a little look at what I got up to in October! 

- Read lots of great books. 

- Went to so many wedding fairs, and wedding open days. But we still haven't decided on a venue yet! 

- Enjoyed a week off work.

- Took lots of Lush baths.

- Did my first motorway drive.

- Did my first motorway drive, solo!

- Jumped on the Hygge bandwagon. I can see why it's so popular, though. I'm looking forward to using Hygge to get me through the cold, dark months ahead!

- Started swimming, weekly.

- Started a new diet.

- Used up my stash of Lush bubble bars and bath bombs, ready to buy all the new Halloween and Christmas bits!

- Lost half a stone, in just over a week of being on a new diet!

- Went to the fair!

- Started decorating for Halloween (I decorate more for Halloween than Christmas, to be honest!)

- Went to the cinema, for the first time in ages, to see Inferno! 

- Got my brand new, shiny, pink driving licence back!

So that's what I got up to in October. Like I said, it was a quiet month, but there were still lots of lovely moments. I'll be sharing my October favourites in a few days, and then I have lots of new and exciting content planned for November; so that's something else to look forward to! 

What did you get up to in October, and what are you looking forward to in November?

  1. Sounds like you've had a fab October! I adored going to wedding fairs. It was something I really missed when I finally got married!


    1. They are so much fun, but quite overwhelming, too. You come back with all these brochures and leaflets and you sit there and think "where to start"?! I already have two folders FULL of wedding brochures, leaflets etc haha. x

  2. I can't believe that there's only 7 weeks until Christmas. I feel like Penny was born just a few weeks ago but that was back in July. I just bout the hygge book a few days ago to see what all the fuss is all about, can't wait to properly start it.
