50 Things To Do In Autumn and Winter Challenge!.........2nd Time Lucky!
Well its officially the beginning of October and I'm officially starting this blog post a month late however let try and have a crack at it. I tried to do this 4 years ago (Blog post here) but failed miserably but I have been wanting to do it again ever since but 2 children, 2 house moves later and I feel I'm ready to have another crack at it.
I've adapted this list in order for it to fit in more with family life however if you don't have children and want to have a bash see the one from the old blog post above. You'll see the ones I've changed as some are virtually impossible with little ones. i.e Number 1 in the old list is...Have a Duvet Day! #nochancenow Hahaha. If you are doing it please leave me your Blog/Twitter etc details below so I can have a nosey.
This challenge will have it's own page in the sidebar so you can have a nosey yourself when things are completed.
