I’m not really sure how its the end of October already, the year seems to be speeding up as we head into autumn. October has been a month of challenges and changes at our house. After finally feeling like we were settling into a routine with school, we had car problems, a sickness bug that struck us for the whole half term and teeth cutting which means that sleep is just a distant memory. Ive written a bit more about that, and our November mission to welcome in the good, here.

It has been a full year since I took a full family photograph, and the difference a year makes is enormous. Looking back on our family photos makes me feel really sentimental, and I don’t want to miss those tiny changes that happen so slowly that you don’t really notice them in day-to-day life.
