:: The Missing Week ::

So this was the week that I lost.

Well I didn't actually loose it I just wasn't around that much, not in a blogging sense that is.

The week where I fell head over heels with a flu virus and spent at least four days in bed, but did manage - by the end of the week - to be coaxed out from under my duvet and get out into the fresh air. A little therapy, by the sea.

Coupled with the annual gathering of family in our home village in Hampshire for bonfire, fireworks, fun fairs, carnivals, clocks going back and much laughter and merriment.

Then a little girl found herself on the eve of turning four so whilst in town we threw her a tea party with family.

I had a go at making chocolate covered Oreo pops - Pinterest makes it look so easy.

Home for Halloween, but not before we stopped off at our favourite deli 'Secretts' in Milford (Surrey) where we stocked up on goodies to take home for tea.

Plus it coincides with a little visit to their Christmas grotto at the garden centre (round the corner) where every year I let the children choose one item each to take home for the Christmas tree.

Halloween was the usual fun filled affair with hot dogs, wedges and fizzy blood (red grape juice) for tea - burping competition included - then out into the garden to light the chimnea and dance around the garden like little mischievous things with glow sticks and sparklers.

I'm looking forward to when the little ones are older and we can huddle around the fire telling spooky stories.............oooooooohhhhhhhh!

And finally, little Boo's birthday - which I mentioned here - and unfortunately the first day of term, but I think we did loads during the build up to make up for it.

Not all that interesting at all really and I'm racking my brains to see if I've remembered everything.

I know as soon as I press the publish button something is bound to go 'did you forget me?' Oh well - the pictures say it more then my words - I'm hoping.

I just can't believe it's taken me a whole week to get it together.
