October was AMAZING. It was such a good month for me. Sadly, October is now over. It’s Hallowe’en tonight which means that I’ll be sat at home, ignoring trick-or-treaters, reading a book.
Here’s my October 2016 recap…
October was just the best month ever. I wrote up what I did while I was away in a Sunday Post (number #33) so I’m not going to bother doing that again here. I will be doing a photo post about my time in Florida this week though so look out for that!
- 1st October – I packed for Florida. I hate packing so much because I’m always worried that I’ll forget something (and I always do). I wrote an extensive list of what I needed to pack and checked everything about 10 times before I was happy. And then my mum checked everything too.
- 3rd – 18th October – I was in Florida and it was fab!
Nothing much happened for the rest of the month.
