The only family photo we took this month is a selfie that includes my sister from the Fireworks display in early November. It was a really fun evening, I actually can’t believe it’s was almost a month ago! The weather was still mild, which made all the difference as it wasn’t painful being outside. This year we arrived just before the fireworks so there was less waiting around, and then stayed to see the bonfire and go on the funfair rides afterwards, when it was less crowded. Definitely worked out better this way round. The kids had had naps at Nana’s house, so they were able to be up later than usual.
On to what we have loved this month:
Being out and about in the local area – fireworks, the Xmas lights switch on, the Remembrance Day parade.
Discovering new places to have coffee with Lily – Chalfont St Peters, Stoke Poges.
Watching Holby City (the latest storyline was epic!), The Apprentice and Little Drummer Girl.
Sorting out an after school routine for Tyler and Lily, and doing homework with Tyler, it feels good to help him.
Being more social this month than usual, meeting with uni friends and blogger friends.
Getting back into interior design, giving my parents living room a makeover with new wallpaper.
Football – playing and watching
On TV – Ozark, Little Drummer Girl
Lily’s enthusiastic greetings when I come home.

Whilst we did a lot in November, I am glad it went quickly as it means it’s now Christmas! What did you love in November?
