The best & worst of September.00:00
I decided I'd write a post on all the good things and all the bad things of September. It's been a bit of a chaotic month to be honest with you. I do try to keep my blog positive and I know the positives will out weight the negatives! I've seen a lot of people write 'Best & Worst' posts and it's inspired me to do the same.
We started off September with the kids going back to school. Ellie starting in year 3, Charlie in year 6 -his final year of primary school- (Still can't believe that!) and Harry of course started high school! They are growing up SO fast! I can't express how proud of them I am. I truly am so, so proud. I'm really pleased to say they have settled in wonderfully. They are all doing wonderful at school (touch wood) and Harry is enjoying high school, although he isn't a fan of the early mornings! Who is though?
September was also the month that Ellie turned EIGHT years old. My youngest child. Eight years old. Madness. She had a lovely birthday! It was stressful for me, nothing went right on that day and it was a bit blah! Didn't help that I was coming down with a cold/flu type thing. The main thing is though, she had a fantastic Birthday and really enjoyed her little tea party and seeing friends and family. It was lovely!
I also have had a bit stress in my personal life going on but it's settled down now (again, touch wood!) and I'm relaxing a bit more. Anxiety has struck me a lot this month too but hopefully that's subsided now too. Anxiety is a horrible thing and I find it really hard to control and deal with. I've been reading a few blogs though and I know I'm not alone. It's just hard, you know?
playing out in the garden and we've been on a couple of lovely walks! I watched a beautiful sunset (more than once!).
We have also enjoyed playing board games - mainly dog bingo, which is an awesome family game to play! That everyone loves. The little's enjoyed doing Autumnal arts & crafts, I may have joined in too, I'm such a big kid, haha.
Overall it hasn't been THAT bad of a month. Just a bit stressful here and there. I really do love this time of year and we have lots to look forward to in October! My eldest will be turning twelve years old! We have half term and Halloween to look forward to and of course the beautiful Autumnal weather.
How was your September?
