November has been a month of sickness. Prior to having Ryan I rarely got sick, now I seem to get a cold every few months. This month both Ryan and I had a cold and cough for three weeks.
In addition to his cold, Ryan also had a molar cutting through, and he had a nasty viral rash on his leg, which looked like chicken pox.
There were many sleepless nights in the household, which Nick managed to avoid as he left for Australia for a couple of weeks for work.
However, it finally seems like our colds are on the way out, in the same way as November. So lets take a look at Life Lately in November.
Chocolate – every night. I love that I can buy a whole bag of Kit Kats for £1! My new addiction is Cadbury’s Mint Oreo, it’s so good.
This is the first month that I’ve started and finished a book, the book was Sunshine on a Rainy Day by Bryony Fraser. Amazon describes it as a funny, feel good romantic comedy, but that’s not how I saw it. It’s about a couple that get divorced a month after they’re married. It’s the only book I’ve ever read that I yelled at in annoyance at some of the fights the couple had, and I was annoyed at the ending that was unrealistic and finished very abruptly.
I’m still watching The Goldbergs, and I still can’t get enough of it. I’m up to the current season, so I can take a break soon.
Online shopping is so good here, heaps better than in Australia. It’s how I’ve been buying most things lately. This month’s purchases include a safety gate, a fold out bed, dummy holders, container labels, a lunch bag, and even a stroller.
Mel, Ryan, and I went to a Scandinavian Christmas market in London and it was so much fun. There was great food and really unique gifts. I love these types of markets; so will be on the lookout for more.
Like it’s time to blog more seriously. I’ve made some changes to my about page, and some aesthetic changes, but now it’s time to make content changes. I’ve added a parenting category, and am working on making content to inspire you guys to travel more, organise your lives better, and share the ups and downs of parenting.
The way the leaves fall like snow whilst I’m driving. Autumn really is a beautiful time of year.
That the flat pack construction ends soon. I still have a bedside table, chair, and drawers to put together. We bought two sets of drawers, the one that I’ve put together took over four hours! On the plus side, no flat pack scares me anymore.
I’ve been slack at planning anything this month as Nick’s been away, so there hasn’t been a great need to plan family days out.
I’ve finally put Ryan into some classes so we can have more of a routine. He’s doing music and gym classes weekly. He loves gym class, but is undecided on the music one.
Well that was November, it wasn’t too stressful and we laid low due to being sick. I’ve said this a thousand times, but the lead up to Christmas is fast approaching – our first as just the three of us.
