Hello November!

Wow, well it’s definitely now the countdown to Christmas! Have you started you Christmas shopping? Or do you like to leave it until the last minute?

October has seen some gorgeous autumn weather, Halloween and my birthday! I had a lovely birthday spent in Blackpool. We had fish and chips by the sea, doughnuts and of course we walked through the Illuminations!

Looking for a loca bonfire or fireworks display? See here! Plus this month is when the Christmas Lights are switched in, see here for a local event.

We’ve had a busy October, here’s my favourite bits:

Swimming Nature

This month Joshua was offered a couple of lessons with Swimming Nature and local programme manager Olympian Jessica Lloyd. He’s been loving the lessons and improving so much. Keep an eye out for my full review and details on how to get a discount!

Manon Ballet

Earlier in the month me and a friend headed to The Manchester Opera House to see the English National Ballet; Manon. I’d never seen a ballet before, check out my review here, it was a fantastic evening and I hope to see a ballet again soon.

Hocus Pocus: RNCM
