Well October is here, seriously where has this year gone. October for me signifies the start of the end, Autumn is here and the end of the year looms ever closer. I love the end months of the year, they are jam packed with my favourite things so for Luca I think we will have lots of new things coming up. This month saw him discover what has to be my favourite new thing he has done so far. So without further ado, here are our October New Things.
New Thing 28: Mummy and her friend, Steph took me for an afternoon stroll around Temple Newsam one Saturday. I was wrapped up all warm and toasty as the weather has got colder now. We went stomping and crunching through leaves, I saw lots of ducks and I learnt to SPLASH IN PUDDLES. How much fun is puddle jumping, my days I loved it and splashed in every puddle I could find on the way back to the car.
New Thing 29: On the same walk I also discovered ladybirds. There was one on a bench we sat on and Mummy put it on my hand.
New Thing 30: My mummy and Papa took me & my cousin, Rhianna, pumpkin picking. We went the Sunday before Halloween to Farmer Copley’s in Pontefract. We rode on a tractor to the pumpkin patch, crawled through the mud searching out the best pumpkins (there were lots) and then took them home to carve in time for Halloween. I really enjoyed it and couldn’t pick up the one I wanted it was so heavy. Poor Papa had to carry them all back to the car.
New Thing 31: It was Halloween this month, my mummy & daddy got me all dressed up last year as a pumpkin and a skeleton but this year I was big enough to go Trick or Treating. I was dressed as a ghost and went with my cousin Rhianna. We went to a few houses down the street and I picked a lollipop everytime. It was good fun.
New Thing 19: For the first time in my life I went to a Chinese restaurant this month. I have tried the odd bit of Chinese food before but honestly, apart from chips from the takeaway, I don’t like it. However, we were invited by Ant’s old work mates for a meal so we decided to join them. Truthfully, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be but then I did chose the plainest, blandest things on the menu. Having said that, I don’t think I’ll be going again any time soon.
New Thing 20: Another one for me this month was that I went to a tea room, alone! Ok, ok, I had Luca with me but I was the only grown up. This might sound like a silly new thing but I would never have gone to eat somewhere by myself before. I don’t know why but the thought just made me feel weird. However, one day after going for a walk near my mums house we decided to drop in for a cup of tea & cake at Dulcie Butterfly. Luca loved sitting in his chair with his cake and elderflower cordial and kept wiping his face with his napkin.
