Dear Diary Our Week – October 12th

Dear Diary October 12th

October 12th – Last week we bought Halloween costumes, this week we’ve had to buy clothes for the wedding we’re going to next Saturday.
It’s Ant’s niece’s wedding in Yorkshire and the girls are really excited about going. I’ve got to get up early so I can curl their hair with one of those ringlet curling tongs!

I nipped to Asda today with Ant and we bought Kaycee a new dress, shoes, tights and cardigan. Ella had shoes, cardigan and tights but no new dress because she’s already got one.
I bought some new shoes for myself and Ant bought me a gorgeous new white orchid 🙂
I’ve got a lovely pink one that my father in law bought me for my birthday a few years ago and I love it. It flowers for months at a time and the flowers are just so pretty.

We’ve been checking out different types of self-catering accommodation in Wales and Scotland this week as we’re planning our holiday for next year in October.
We’ve been looking at Haven, Hoseason’s and some private rentals. We haven’t found the perfect place yet but we’ve got plenty of time to keep searching.
Ant wants to stay by a lake so he can take the kids canoeing and I’d like to go somewhere with woods and lots of wildlife so I can take loads of photos.

We seem to have been inundated with review products this week. The girls have got loom bands, headbands, dress up clothes and noisy toys to review and Ant’s been sent an e-cig to try because he’s giving up smoking so look out for all those sometime this week!

How’s your week been?
