The month of November. #BestAndWorst


November didn't start off too great. My brain condition (IIH) flared up which resulted in headaches and just not feeling too great. One of the symptoms of IIH is numbness and tingling, my arms and legs went very numb for a while but as the month went on, I have got a bit better. Thankfully. I've also felt rather anxious on and off but enough of that now, onto the good stuff!

 During November I went to Ellie's parents evening, I enjoy parents evening and hearing about her progress and looking at all her lovely work. She's getting on very, very well at school. I am super proud of her.

Charlie really knuckled down and has settled into year 7 now. He's also got use to the homework, he still struggles sometimes but overall, he's much more settled. It helps having his big brother there too!

Harry's also getting on well and has been enjoying lots of sports and what not. I'm really proud of them both!
I'm not really sure we actually got very much of our bucket list ticked off this month but that's ok! I'm sure I'll do better in December.

The last weekend of November. Ellie and I were both poorly. It's to be expected this time of year though. Still sucks though. Thankfully, the boys haven't caught it. Touch wood. 

We've had some lovely things to review, lots of lovely festive arts and crafts items and we love the BB-8 and Thunderbird inflatable remote controls, they're super fun!

Other things I've loved this month include, The Walking Dead, reading (You can read my monthly reading wrap up here) I think my favourite book last month was Behind Closed Doors by B.A Paris. I've also started working out towards the end of the month! In hope to loose a few pounds before Christmas - Wish me luck!

I've also been organising for Christmas and planning. I still have A LOT of presents to buy but I am getting there slowly. We have lots of exciting things coming up in December. Ellie has a nativity play (although I don't think she's got any lines to say or anything) and a school carol service, school trips and Christmas jumper days. I think the boys have there school Christmas activities, too! And of course Christmas! We are super excited! I can't wait to put the tree up, hehe.

How was November for you?

  6. Sounds like over all you had a decent November. Glad you are feeling better now. My husband and I were poorly the last week of November too but miraculously the kids managed not to catch it.


  7. I'm glad he's settled in, year 7 is such a hard year for them as there is a lot of adjustment needed. My eldest is in year 8 now, which seems crazy to me! I hope you all have a fantastic December and Christmas.
