Catchup – halloween, the dentist and the flat tyre!

Half-term break is over – yeah!  I loved it, but love it being over too.

Since my last blog post…here’s what’s been happening :

  • pumpkin carving
  • sparklers

  • fall fest – our church alternative  to the usual festivities for families (bouncy castle, live music, fancy dress, pumpkin carving, puppet shows, craft, food – all free)

  • fireworks

  • trick-or-treating (no photos – never assume you have downloaded all your images before clearing your memory card 🙁 – oh well!)
  • trip to IKEA
  • kids back to school
  • took 3 kids to dentist – thumbs-up all round
  • FLAT TYRE on way home from dentist – getting dark, raining heavily and 3 tired.hungry kids in the car
  • RAC membership expired – eeek – renewed in the car from the side of the road
  • 30 minutes trying to explain to the RAC operator exactly where we were 
  • 30 more minutes of waiting, and the truck turned up
  • seeing our car on the back of a recovery truck and getting to ride in the cab ALMOST made up for our adventure (well, only if you are 6!)
  • Home sweet home, 3 miles and 90 minutes from the start of the puncture!

 photo taken with iphone – and NO – my car is NOT on fire!!! (just the lorry lights)

  • 45 minutes later leaving the house to see West Side Story at local school – amazing production, and great to see kids I remember as wee babies now taking the main roles! 
  • Getting tyre replaced today

So……what’s happening in your life?!!
