Now that the busyness of summer is behind us, I feel like I can finally breathe and settle into life with my little ones. As wonderful as the summer was there is something about the return to the everyday routine that makes me feel calm and centred. A feeling that I havent feel for a little while and have been craving. I am looking forward to a slower pace of life over autumn and really want to enjoy and make the most of these cooler, snuggly days as a family so we’ve written a little autumn bucket list of things we’d like to do over the next few months.
I started to write this list on my own one evening but then realised it would be much more fun to write is as a family. So we sat down one afternoon, the husband, little lady and I each with a pad of paper and a pen and wrote down the different things we’d like to do together during Autumn. The little one did need a little bit (a lot) of help translating her thoughts onto paper, but we got there and I have to say I am quite excited about our little list and looking forward to doing as many of these things as we can.
I think we’ve got a really nice list of things to do, and even though we didn’t work towards a specific number, it works out as roughly four things a month, or one thing a week which feels achievable (I think!). Plus its a nice mix of doing things all together, doing some things just with the littlest one and doing some things for me, like going to Blogfest. I don’t know if we’ll get through everything, for example Blog Fest and the weekend breaks will very much depend on budgets but we’ll aim high and see where we end up! So here’s our Autumn bucket list:
- Find a weekend class for the little lady
- Go on a weekend break in the UK
- Go on a weekend city break in Europe
- Start and finish our Christmas shopping
- Finish furnishing one room in the house
- Go for a family meal out
- Arrange half term play dates
- Go to a baby friendly cinema viewing
- Go to Blog Fest 16
- Take the little ones to the Polka Theatre
- Go to a Bach to Baby recital
- Go to Baby Sensory classes
- Book a christmas experience for the little ones
I’ve loved putting together our little autumn bucket list and would love to know whats on yours!
