LIKED AND LOVED: November 2018

This month has been full of emotion from being in awe of the beautiful world that we live in in all it's colour to being deeply saddened as the leaves fall to the ground and we experience bereavement.

LIKED AND LOVED: November 2018

Sometimes it's hard to recall the lovely things in the world or remember that they do in fact exist. This is particularly true when you are deeply saddened by losing someone. November saw my family go through grief and giving thanks for having experienced my Grandma's presence. She will be missed by everyone of us. 

Geocaching Around Langley Park 

LIKED AND LOVED: November 2018

Despite the cold weather we are experiencing we've kept up the geocaching and explored some lovely areas. Langley Park was one such place that we visited and fell in love with. Although not as colourful as Westonbirt Arboretum it is still lovely with a picturesque lake and gorgeous autumnal red light cascading on the ground through the trees before the sun went down.

Music Lesson with Bella

LIKED AND LOVED: November 2018

We were invited to a music class this month and thoroughly enjoyed our session. My husband got carried away singing both the teacher's part as well as his own and the girls gave us a bit of a run around but our love of music in the family has grown. I'm sure it would make for a great way in which to learn to read both literary and musical notes.

The Preschool Puppy Mascot and Oxford Winter Night Light Festival

LIKED AND LOVED: November 2018

During the month of November we also got introduced to the preschool mascot who thankfully was potty trained. We took him on a trip into Oxford to see the Christmas lights and the annual Winter Night Light Festival. The girls loved exploring the museums and listening to the musical acts throughout the city centre.

Christmas Busy Kit

LIKED AND LOVED: November 2018

I spent a little time this month putting together a busy kit for the girls. So far we've taken it out just once and the girls go to choice was the sticker book. This is a great activity for developing their fine motor skills. My eldest understands where the stickers go and is getting great at lining them up in the right place whereas her little sister is more likely to tear the stickers out of the book! 

Christmas at Blenheim Palace

LIKED AND LOVED: November 2018

Stepping foot through the palace gates we were once again transported to a magical land. This time alongside the trail of lights there was a truly fairytale experience as mice were spotted throughout the Palace and we were taken on a tour of the tale of Cinderella where we even got to see the Fairy Godmother. I will be writing all about our experience in an upcoming post so watch this space.

What have you been up to this month?

  1. Sounds like a lovely week. A light show at Christmas is one of my favorite things. I'm looking forward to your future post on Christmas at the palace - that must have been so beautiful. #MMBC
