Me and Mine {September}

Ahhh, it’s end of September. Autumn has officially started a couple of days ago.Three months until Christmas… just saying. But first Halloween which is my second favourite season of the year. September was a pretty quiet month for us. We didn’t do anything mad or we didn’t go anywhere. We were pretty much kept busy organising our final decisions on our new home. Things like tiles and carpets. I never thought it would be so stressful trying to pick these things. In my opinion it needs to be perfection. Maybe it’s a German thing. We are not going to move again. This will be our forever home You want to design it the way you want it and make it look like your forever home. I am really happy with the decision I made so far.

This might be my last ever Me and Mine post from our current house. If it all goes well, our new chapter in life will begin in three weeks time which leads me to the project being carried out from a different location from then onwards. It’s sad and exciting at the same time.

Me and Mine {June}

We’re at the end of the month of June. What does this mean? Half the year of 2016 is gone already. Honestly it doesn’t feel like that at all. The years are slipping away on us. We really have to make the most of it. So today I am linking up with Dear Beautiful Boy again for her “Me and Mine Project”. A family photo every month, it has to be one of my favourite linkys.

June has been rather kind to us. It started off with a heatwave for us. It was nice to see that June, for once, had to offer a bit of summer and not just pouring rain. We definitely took advantage of the weather and got out the parasol, swimming pool, tidied up the sandpit and setup a beach shelter to keep Chloe away from the sun in the afternoon.

Unfortunately Ireland is known for its constantly changing weather and the other half of June was quite dull. More rain but at least the temperatures are still quite acceptable at 17/18 degrees. Better than nothing. Take what you can I suppose.

Here is what we have been up to this month:
