And it has. Hello Red.
I turn 37 next week and to be honest I've been feeling a bit fed up lately. I think it is a bit of a post back to school low after such a busy September plus Husband's foot operation complications has been worrying me a bit. I decided a bit of TLC in the form of a new hair colour would cheer me up.
And it has. Hello Red.

I'm watching some fab TV this month, it's at the point where I'm staying up far too late just to squeeze one more episode in! The kids are still enjoying watching Bake Off which started last month and with Husband home after his foot operation we've been able to watch a lot more together in the evenings which is always nice.
Impatient kids complain about being bored an average of 122 times every month – that’s nearly 1,500 times per year - according to new research by BIC as part of its Young Artist Award (It feels like double that in my household!). The study also revealed that 69 percent of us parents dread hearing the words “I’m bored”. But experts claim parents should be doing more to encourage boredom as mechanism to inspire creativity. We should be letting their minds wander rather than plonking them in front of the TV or electronic tablet.
Here are my screen-free top tips tips to help promote imagination and creativity in our kids.
September = Back to school. Actually new schools for both the girls with Little E moving up to Junior School and Little I starting Reception at Infants. And I managed not to cry! It was also a month filled with birthday celebrations, lots of parties for the little ones and grown up celebrations with cocktails and whole pies. Then of course Husband's foot operation which has been rocky but it's lovely having him home all day.

I haven't had much spare time over the past few weeks with the back to school madness but I have started some new shows and am using my Netflix app to watch box sets while doing the housework and cooking! Here's what I'm watching at the moment:
There are many myths surrounding donor eggs, but especially when it comes to women wishing for motherhood at a later age. When couples decide to start a family and struggle to conceive, it can become very discouraging as time passes and nothing happens. However, with donor eggs as an option, getting pregnant in your 40s becomes more attainable for any hopeful couple. Take heart in knowing pregnancy in your 40’s myths are exactly that — myths.
Let’s explore some of the more common pregnancy over 40 myths
Last month will be forever burnt into my memory as Husband and I shipped the kids off to France with their Grandparents while we celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary in Croatia. The week before we left I juggled keeping the kids entertained and my excessive work to do list and when we got back life switched to healthy eating, back to school shopping and catching up with my besties. A summer to remember.
Here's my latest roundup of what I'm watching this month. This month we've been on holiday to Croatia but due to the magic of WIFI I was able to catch a few episodes of my latest Netflix shows by the pool.
This month Husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary with a child-free holiday to the beautiful country of Croatia. We stayed at the Sensimar Adriatic Beach adults only resort on Croatia's stunning Dalmatian coastline. Located at the foot of mount Biokovo in the small town of Živogošće, Sensimar Adriatic Beach is a TUI hotel on the South Coast of Croatia. It lies roughly 2 hours south of Split and half an hour from the port town of Markaska. To say we were pleased with our choice of holiday destination and adult only, all inclusive hotel would be an understatement.
