October in review

October is over and I am running late posting this. I have enjoyed the Blogtober fest challenge this year again. I didn't quite manage the everyday posting but I posted 28 days (it was harder the last week as we were away for half-term). After a lovely week-end in Bruges with friends, I spent the rest of the week with my Mum and kiddies in Centre Parcs where we all had a brilliant and busy time. I came home to loads of washing etc but also a freezer that had gone off so I spent all of last night cooking as much as possible to save all that could be saved and try some damage limitation. I think I cooked about 12 meals last night!
Let's look at October goals and achievements now!
