Me & Mine In November


So this months Me & Mine photos were taken in my favourite place of all, Disneyland Paris!You'd think that with such a lovely backdrop we'd be able to pull some really nice photos of the bag wouldn't you?

But no...thanks to the after-effects of Shingles I still can't open my eyes properly in daylight and the kids have those same old permanently confused/grumpy expressions on their faces that they always favour. If it had been just us I might have kept trying until we got better photos but we had a Disney employee taking them for us and I didn't feel like it was appropriate to yell at him that they're all crap and to take more like I would if it was Jon...so alas, these are the photos we have!

Don't let the photos fool you though, we had a fantastic trip to Disneyland Paris and it was without doubt the big highlight of November for all of us...because the rest of November was a bit of a shitter if I'm honest!

We've all had stinking colds and coughs that absolutely refuse to bugger off, and there's been a vomiting bug passed back and forth between the boys too which is always soooooo much fun isn't it?! Even more so when you don't have a working washing machine and they keep waiting until night time to throw up! Yay for handwashing sicky sheets every night!

I'm REALLY hoping that we've finally seen the back of annoying colds and bugs, and that December will be full of festive fun and frolics...I'm usually SO geared up for Christmas that Jon is having to physically restrain me from putting the tree up too early and binge watching all of the Christmas movies by now but for some reason I'm not feeling it this year.

But I live in hope that it's because its...you know...still November! Christmas seems to get earlier each year and I'm somewhat of a traditionalist in a lot of ways, so maybe I'm just waiting for actual December to arrive before my I get my festive head on. I really hope so coz I've never been a Scrooge before  and I don't like that colour on me!
