Lazy Days...

Lazy Days...

...and a bit of Harry Potter

The children have been home for the past two weeks for their half term holiday. I love the October half term as with Halloween and Bonfire Night there is always lots to look forward to, but as the nights draw in it's also a perfect time to cosy up and do very little...

...We've done lots of baking, picked out & carved our pumpkins, gone for walks, snuggled up and watched films, visited friends and family and enjoyed fireworks in the garden. We also managed to take the children to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London, which was just amazing.

I've been crocheting lots over the holiday and have some nice things to show once the children go back to school and I get time to photograph it all. I cant believe it's November already and only 7 weeks until Christmas, every year I say I will be more organised and every year it creeps up on me so I really should get started.

Anyway, I just thought I'd do a little update and share some photos while all is calm for 5 minutes.  Everything will be back to normal next week and I think I'll miss these lazy days.

Such amazing sets if you have any Harry Potter fans at home I'd definitely recommend it.

Hope you have had happy and safe Halloween/Bonfire celebrations.

Bye for now. Em xx

    Looks like an amazing half term - I really want to go on that tour and have recently introduced the kids to HP as part of my cunning plan.

    Can't wait to see what you have been making :D

      Thanks Sarah, it has been very relaxing - well as relaxing as being home with 3 children can be :) I like your plan - you'll love the tour (so will the children of course!) xx
