September Roundup

September seems to have been and gone in a flash and as a result I don’t feel like I’ve done much but never the less. Here is my September roundup!


Firstly in September I won a competition! I’ve never won anything before in my life so I was pretty amazed when I won this gorgeous palette on a giveaway over at Sophie’s Blog


One evening after work we decided to go to JoJo Gelato in Fareham. I had this scrummy Nutella and Cookie supreme crepe. It was so good, especially after a hard day at work.


We also visited the Waitrose Farm Shop. Here is the post about our visit.


In Lee-on-the-Solent there was a super low tide on 18th September. I’m still discovering new things about living by the sea and this was one of them. The photo doesn’t do it justice but the sea really was a lot further out than usual.

At the end of September we went to Wales for 4 nights. I’ve never visited Wales before so it was nice to explore somewhere new. There’s a more detailed post to follow.

In September I did 8 blog posts which I think might be a record for me! If you missed any, they’re linked below:

Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is less than a week away so here are a few last minute gift ideas that might just impress your Dad. All links open in a new tab/window

First up is a gift for the techie Dad, he’s got a gadget for this and a gadget for measuring that so why not buy him the Apple Watch which can bring all of that together for £259.


The Sporty Dad, well what better to buy him than the England away kit to help him support them through Euro 2016? £50 from John Lewis


The Dad who loves a bit of DIY can sometimes be tricky to buy for but what about a personalised hammer? These are fun and you can add any message. They’re by Auntie Mims from Not On The High Street and are only £20!


Some Dad’s love nothing more than pottering around in their garden or allotment so a grow your own chilli kit could be right up his street. It’s only £12.95 from Tesco


Is your Dad in to Super Heroes or maybe he is your Hero? These socks are a great choice and also perfect if you need something on a bit of a budget! They’re only £4 from F&F at Tesco
