Siblings // October 2016

I’m late with the Siblings Project again this month as I desperately wanted some of these photos to be taken in a pumpkin patch – which we finally achieved over the weekend! Although H-Bear would have you believe it was a Pick-Your-Own stone farm, rather than pumpkins… Anyway, it’s October! The middle of, in fact. So what have we been up to this month? Our local green space has reopened to the public (it’s owned by the university, and they closed it over  ...

My Wild Ones // A weekend of sport, 25/52

We spent last weekend over in West Yorkshire with Nick’s parents. The children had bought Nick a croquet kit for Father’s Day, so he had his present a day early and we took it with us! We had a lovely afternoon playing croquet in the garden, with Pimms (obvs). Busby took to croquet with great gusto… And H-Bear?
