Hrmph! It seems like forever since I have been to blogland, and I've missed my little blog! Everything has been busy, busy, busy just lately and sometimes I have to remind myself to stop and catch my breath! Well, first off did you all enjoy the halloween festivities? At work we always have a halloween themed party and this year was no exception, we managed to pull it off with the help of family who came to stay and helped out with the boys........

This year we had the bonus of having this gianormous pumpkin:

It was grown by one of our locals, along with the other pumpkins you can see and weighed in at a whopping 10stone 4lbs! (yes, we did a 'guess the weight' competition) Now, I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin I must admit but they are a great way of entertaining your children, The big pumpking wasn't hollowed out, in fact he went back to his owner I'm not sure whether he has scooped out the seeds and dried them out ready for next year or if he let the pumpkin decompose naturally on his compost heap in the hope that it would plant out...........who knows, not being one of these green fingered types I wouldn't have a clue! I have however been promised more pumpkins for next year! :) you can't say fairer than that can you?

I'm just in the middle of a big debate with myself whether I should start a bit of christmas crafting or not to bother, I know most of you will probably have started way back in September, but do you think it's too late now? I reckon I could rustle up a few bits and bobs in time for the big guy's visit lol! Last year I didn't have the chance and I always regret not making things, the trouble is I start out with all these good intentions only to find I dont really have the time to commit to any major life at the moment is all work and absolutely no play :( It's hard enough but now with little one to entertain it seems virtually impossible. I need a bit of organisation and routine in my life, maybe that should be one of my new years resolutions hey?! I have managed a little bit of crafting though so I will try and pop back to blogland when I have a spare 5 mins (laughs) and show you the pics

'Till next time then! xx
