Oooh Halloween

Halloween Balloons Wishful Style Queen

This really is my favourite time of the year. Although as soon as I write that I have Andy William’s singing ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’. Sorry Andy it’s not Christmas Halloween is where it’s at for me!

Mother Nature puts on a colour spectacle with greens turning to orange, russet, burgundy and eventually brown. Crispy leaves just ready to be kicked, or stepped on with a satisfying crunch(don’t dare let the thought of trodding possible dog poop ruin that for you!) A slight chill in the air which justifies you buying that beautiful Winter coat and putting on your favourite boots from last year. Don’t get me started on opaque tights, we have a very serious relationship come Winter.

Thus an unexpected interlude from the blog occurred. I’m sorry.

Little A or the Sleep Thief as he’s now affectionately called wasn’t sleeping. Or rather he was, that is if you allowed him to fall asleep on you while sitting in a chair in his room and then picked him up from his cot when he screamed the house down in the middle of the night so he could sleep in with you. Three in the bed and the little one said… move over I want to lie horizontally on the bed and I’m going to whinge while asleep until I get my way! What do you mean you don’t enjoy sleeping on the edge of the bed with your head on the bedside table?

We’re in the process of resolving that issue thanks to the amazing Niamh O’Reilly from The Nursery. She’s a magician, well not really but she is magic! More on that soon.
