October has actually been a mixed month. Blake has been poorly with a cold and had to have time off while waiting results from a covid test. Luckily he was all fine. We have also got up to some really exciting things this month too. We joined in with trick or treating with Blake for the first time which he really enjoyed. We've been to the zoo, joined a  Halloween trail, went pumpkin picking and spent time with family. 



All 4 
Help
A young carer at a Liverpool care home forms a bond with a challenging patient struggling with young-onset Alzheimer's disease. However, the horrifying circumstances of the outbreak of Covid-19 throw everything into disarray.



Netflix 
Squid Game
You have most likely heard of this one due to it's popularity. Definitely one kids shouldn't be watching. 
Hundreds of cash-strapped contestants accept an invitation to compete in children's games for a tempting prize, but the stakes are deadly.


Maid 
Single mother Alex turns to housecleaning to make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy.


Halloween films
We've spent this month watching quite a few family friendly Halloween films. You can check out my list from a few year's ago which features some favourites.




Friendship decor sign
We are really good friends with our next door neighbour and she gave me this little sign as a gift. 




Sweet Carolines

A new dessert place opened up locally and we've been only once so far but it was amazing!  Definitely will be headed back and trying out more of their delicious goodies.



Pumpkin Spice Lattes
I love pumpkin spice lattes and quite a few from Greggs have been consumed during October.
I absolutely love this reward chart I ordered from Amazon. It's by TotsUp and is magnetic. Blake has never been into stickers etc and this has been a much better option for motivating him. The great thing is we can use it again and again for different things we want him to do.

I enjoy guided journals and this one caught my eye.  I liked the mix of meaningful and fun questions. So far I've had quite a few that have got me really thinking. 



Letter box decal
I found this cute "Oh hello" decal for our letterbox over on etsy. 


Pumpkin stickers
I cheated this year and used pumpkin stickers that I saw in Tesco. There were about 6 different fun designs in the pack.

Halloween Squishmallow
I managed to grab the last Squishmallow that was in my local Aldi. They are really popular so I was very surprised I was able to get hold of one.
