October was a month of some serious waiting, a lot of sleep deprivation and a lot of autumning too. We found ourselves at another beer festival, this time Indy Man in Manchester for Jim's sisters birthday (Hello Jane) which was a wonderfully beery affair. I attended my first WI meeting in 3 years as not the president which was strange but also a lot of fun. We took lots of woodland walks with the pooches. I learnt acorns are poisonous o dogs so spent a fretful night watching Melle to see just how many he’d eaten! Jim went to India so I had a few weeks of fending for myself. I saw friends for cocktails and brunch and chats about their exciting business plans. I also surrendered my broken dslr to be fixed so survived a month on just phone photos. Not a bad month really!
Now, on to November!
We have some fun plans with friends lined up, places to visit, people to see, and I intend to make the most of all the plans. I've started with my festive gifts for this year, they're not anything big or fancy but I'm excited by them, and making gifts is always fun isn't it. One of the things we've done for quite a few years is a calendar of Flash and now, with Melle in the mix it should be doubly fun! We have been working on the hallway for ages and ages. We had a man planned to come fit an internal door to is AGES ago but he flaked on us so we’ve sort of been in limbo until now. BUT the doorway goes in next week. Then we can paint, and decorate. And plan shoe storage! And the beanies thing. It’s winter. I adore them. It speaks for itself that I ought to be buying them all, doesn’t it?
Now, tell me, what are your plans for the month?
