Farewell to October

It’s fair to say that October has been a mixed bag of a month with the overriding story for our family summed up nicely in this picture of our bathroom window sill…

Literally every member of the house has had a cough, cold or something and in particular Ellie has really struggled for over 4 weeks culminating in a chest and throat infection. Listening to my little girl coughing and straining while trying to get to sleep night after night has quite frankly been distressing and exhausting. Thankfully we do seem to be through it now and despite it all, the month has definitely not been all doom and gloom.

I’ve had time to notice and actually get the children to notice the beautiful autumn colours…

We’ve enjoyed some great family time include a trip to National Trust Croome which was a super day out…

So on reflection It hasn’t been the best October we’ve ever had but it has had some highlights. Here’s hoping that the winter bugs are done with and we can now enjoy the run up to, and excitement of, Christmas. Yes I said the C word and I don’t care! 🙂

    Aw I’m sorry your family has had bugs, it sucks when everyone gets sick. It does sound like there have been some good days though.
    I can’t wait for Christmas! 😉
