Sightings From September

Hello October. Another month means the newest Sightings From post. I always feel like it was just yesterday I was writing the last one. How 30 days become the past ever so quickly I’ll never get to grips with. The 1st of October feels like such a celebrated moment in the year. We’ve all survived 9 months of 2018, and with only 3 left to go we’re nearing the end. I flipped over my calendar this morning for October, and it’s very, very empty. The smile on my face was huge. I have been loving ‘home’ days with Theodore lately. We’ve been proper-chilling, playing games, reading books and playing in the garden. I’m cherishing these quiet days for all they are worth.

September was hectic, jam-packed days after days. I’ve been exhausted, it’s been long days out and then working on the house in the evenings. Everything at home has fell behind because of our busy schedule, the cleaning and unpacking (yes we still have boxes to unpack) have taken a backseat. Which has left me with a to-do list longer than my arm to get done. But at least it gives me something to fill these quiet days with.

You might have read on my Instagram that I’ve been in a really happy place lately. It’s strange to question happiness. I should just be getting on with life being gladly happy. But instead I’ve been searching for the reason behind this bundle of happiness. That needs to stop. Accepting the happiness for whatever it is and just enjoying it. Life just feels amazing right now. I hope October does the same.

    Oh Caitylis – thanks so much for choosing my photo. It makes me happy to just see it again – it was such a wonderful day and brings back such fond feelings.

    Love your photos and the filter you use. They’re always so warm and nostalgic. Plus your bubbas are just the cutest!! You have a fab eye.

    Looking forward to seeing the transition from the last drops of Summer to full-on Autumn in your sightings from October!! Not to mention cutie Halloween outfits…!
