Matt delivered the children back this morning and we had a brief time at home before setting out to meet up with friends. We were meeting two of my friends from NCT ante natal classes when I was pregnant with Sx. After a pub lunch, we went for a wander round a local “scarecrow trail”.
There is an annual theme (this year was “sci fi”) and people create little scarecrows or scenes in their gardens. It was a beautiful afternoon, the children won chocolate for their efforts and the Mums then bought some coffees to drink while sitting and chatting in the Autumn sunshine while the children played. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.
We raced home, took delivery from Tescos and then whizzed straight off to take Sx to a sleepover – all very last minute stuff! We then got a McD’s for the rest of the children as we were running out of time and rushed into Halloween fancy dress for some trick or treating
