Plaid family

Well the weekend is drawing to a close, oh so quickly, yet again! But it’s been a really nice one for us here. Bit of shopping, walking, duck feeding, and self feeding. 

 Saturday saw us attempt our first family pumpkin carving….

And for some reason I seem to have a plaid/checked thing going on. Now, I’m not sure if this is pure laziness on my behalf as I assist 4 out of 5(most days, sometimes it’s all 5) people in this house to get dressed, and whether my mind can only comprehend one outfit at a time so therefore i dress us all the same OR i just totally love plaid and checked shirts! ( for the sake of this conundrum i sent myself to my wardrobe where i counted 10 different plaid shirts!! Seriously 10… do i really need that many?! yup)

even he has a checked shirt on underneath his knit

Super comfy outfit for walks and ducky feeding. 

Bought this jacket after wanting one for ages like this, on sale for £12 from Peacocks.

Its so warm and cosy.

Shirt to add to my collection from Matalan last week.


These two are so cute

Mission Pumpkin was a fair success i’d say. Hubby did good and did all the hard bits for the kids. We ended up with lots of pumpkin innards that i attempted to make a pumpkin soup. Now, i’m quite a good cook. I enjoy cooking and have vastly improved over the years. However, my soup was just not, well… good. For some reason the kids thought it was delish, me and Hub’s thought it was just not great. Gunna try again!

Here’s a little look at out Pumpkin antics:

These lovely pumpkins made my house smell sooo good!

Hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend! Another day with the kids tomorrow for us as it’s the beginning of half term here. Plans are the park if dry, play gym if wet. So just general playing about rain or shine!

    Great job with the pumpkin carving! I think I would be too dangerous with the knife hehe. Some of the best pumpkin soup I've ever managed to make was a super easy thai style one, I think it had coconut milk and was just delicately spicy. I don't know which recipe I used sorry, just something in my internet wanderings…

    you can never have too many plaid shirts. they are cute and cozy and most importantly, they hide any stains that you may get from the kiddos!
