Yes, I took a few days break from the blog. I got to celebrate Halloween by hosting a party, spent a lovely, sunny day with my gorgeous, ever-growing nephew and then got to celebrate my boyfriend’s niece’s 1st birthday with his family. It was one of those weekends which was busy and happy and it was a real shame when it had to end on Sunday evening. But it was also a time when I was flooded with ideas for the blog, most especially with Shristmas just 8 weeks away. So, be prepared to get inspired as the season draws closer, with DIY craft ideas, recipes and gift guides, all on their way to help make this festive time the best yet. But, until then, there’s still time to get into the Halloween spirit, you can even take some inspiration from my orange and black themed dining table, adorned with pumpkins, flowers and a skull runner!
