LIFE THROUGHOUT OCTOBER

LIFE THROUGHOUT OCTOBER, pumpkin patch

I’ve been a little quiet on here throughout October and I feel awful that I haven’t even managed to sit down and write any posts let alone actually publish one. I’ve definitely missed writing so I’m trying to motivate myself to get back into it. At the beginning of October I moved house, not too far from my old one but it was a move that was worth while. The new house is a huge project, we’ve downsized but with the plan to extend it at all angles. It’s going to take time so for now the four of us are putting up with tight spaces and sharing a little more than usual. I would love to document some of the decorating process on here I’m just figuring out the best style to do that in.

We spent the first 10 days without wifi which I’m ashamed to say I certainly struggled with. It’s amazing how much you really depend on it for so many things, I found myself wanting to google things all the time and not being able to left a lot of unanswered questions, I’m happy to finally have it again. We currently don’t have much of a kitchen, it’s being re-done and walls need knocking down but we’re getting by. We survived on microwave meals for nearly two weeks and it wasn’t actually that bad, but I’m happy to have a nice brand new oven now. Along with the washing machine, fridge and a couple of other appliances the kitchen is looking very bare and like a building site but it shouldn’t be too long until it comes together a little more.

In-between unpacking boxes I’ve been doing a lot of overtime at work, everyone complains about working in retail but I’m actually really enjoying it, I’m especially looking forward to the next couple of months, people are starting to buy gifts and the talk of Christmas makes everyone a little bit jollier. I’ve been covering other stores in Oxford and Cheltenham which I’ve been using as an excuse to go shopping around my shifts and it gives me a chance to snap some photos for the gram. I’m in total awe over Oxford and could really see myself getting a place there when I move out.

Mid October I found some time to head to a pumpkin patch and take some photos, I was really fond of this shoot even though I did get drenched and extremely muddy it was totally worth it for all the autumnal photos. My aim for the rest of the year is to squeeze in many more shoots, even though the weather isn’t the best I’m trying to see the up side and get creative. I’d also like to take a trip to London before the end of the year as surprisingly I didn’t get around to that in the summer.

What did you get up to this October?

    What a beautiful scenery of your photos. Changes are always difficult. We always require fo time to adjust to. Sometimes, some of them are easy and others we have struggles to deal with it.

    I wouldn’t be able to survive without WIfi too. Your October photos are amazing. It always is a good thing to get outdoors as you did.

    That pumpkin patch is so adorable! I always say I’m going to get to one in October but never make it. And sorry to hear you had no wifi for 10 days 🙁 We had the same problem when we moved into our house last year and I was having the worst time! I also work from home so it was super hard.

    Loved this post & your photos are beautiful! This October I spent some time visiting my family because I don’t live near them unfortunately. But we had a great time. I share a birthday with my mom on October 20th so we got to spend our birthday together which is always special! Happy Thanksgiving!

    I think I’d struggle without wifi too haha.
    I spent the majority of October settling into university, and didn’t make it to a pumpkin patch, unfortunately!
    These photos are so lovely x

    Ah, living without wifi, I feel you. I had to live without one for 3 months and only rely on my phone internet which was limited. It was a nightmare, I’m not even ashamed to say 😀 So many things in life are online these days, like my identity in my current home country, so not having internet can be a struggle.

    Good luck with renovating the new home! x
