We've been Pumpkin picking today and it was really good. It's something I've wanted to do for ages, but the time hasn't been right. We went to Poplar Farm near Ormskirk in the North West of England. I had a good scour of the internet and decided to visit this place over the place that most people tend to opt for, where we live, and I'm so glad I did.
The choice was really good and at 3 pumpkins for £10.00 regardless of the size, or £4.00 each, we definitely got excellent value for money. The Pumpkins were huge and would have cost about £15.00 each at the places where you pay per weight.
The clocks go back, in the UK, on the 30th of October and I have teamed up with Elizabeth Shaw, the chocolatiers, to think about ways that we could use this extra hour to consider others or to make a thoughtful gesture.
Autumn is my favourite time of year, and I can think of many ways that I could use the extra hour for fun with my family. We could bake a cake, go to the park, head off to the country park near us, for an Autumn walk. It would be lovely to actually mark the extra hour on the calendar at some point that day and make a determined effort to enjoy a family activity - make a special effort to do so.
Do you make Christmas Eve Boxes for your children? I do. I first noticed this growing trend a couple of years ago when I began getting into blogging and Pinterest started to take over my life. There are so many gorgeous ideas out there, you could definitely get carried away and go mad.
I am really excited to start filling this year's boxes for the kids, as I have been lucky enough to be sent a wooden Christmas Eve box from the Sue Ryder Online Christmas Store.
I will be honest with you, I would never have thought to look here for such a thing, but I came across them by a stroke of luck really and I thought they looked brilliant. In fact, the entire Christmas store contains some really gorgeous things, which I'll tell you more about later.
It's time. Time to be thinking about Christmas. With just 10 weeks until the big day, to go, it really is time to start thinking about getting prepared. To start off the festivities on Twin Mummy Yummy, I would like to tell you all about these gorgeous Personalised Christmas Stockings from Hide & Seek Textiles.
Hide & Seek Textiles are a relatively new company, based in West Sussex. They specialise in quality personalised products and their Christmas range is really gorgeous.
Disney On Ice has been on my bucket list for Lauren for quite some time, but since Harry and Matthew have come along, we just haven't had the time to sort it out. I have heard wonderful things about how good the shows are and Lauren is a real Frozen fan and can often be heard singing 'Let it Go' at the top of her voice. She even sang the song when she auditioned for Britain's Got Talent - Bless her. Well we have been lucky enough to get tickets for tonight and we are really looking forward to it.
