Se7en’s Fabulous Friday Fun #193

October 20th, 2013 · 6 Comments

So this is October, more sunshine days than rain… but not nearly as warm as we would like it… We’ve been planting like crazy and lets just hope we remember to water… we aren’t the best gardeners on earth but I think we would be better if our crops surprised us and thrived!!!


There was a little swimming this week, but it was more of the jump in because we can and then dash inside for cocoa. everyone is enjoying the tepid sunshine… and we are looking forward to it getting a whole lot warmer!!!



Here are this weeks lovely links…

  1. Let the Children Play… with Mirrors in the garden… Love it!!!
  2. I loved everything in this post on Kireei… Sara Carr Stunning!!! You know when you don’t know which image to pin!!!
  3. Bellissima Kids had an unmissable felt board this week.
  4. Book Friends you are going to love this: Find your Next Book on Children’s Illustration.
  5. Playing by the Book… Delightful Postman Post…
  6. NutureStore has been making Paper Lanterns at the Just So Festival…
  7. Painted leaves to die for… on Faber Castell’s site…
  8. And the se7en + 1th link:

  9. A Blast From the Past:

And one more thing…

We have two fantastic GiveAways on on our blog right now:

DK Books Launch their Minifigure Year by Year guide… and you just have to be following them on instagram for the mini-figure awesomeness right now!!!

And a couple of weeks ago I mentioned Christian Focus for Kids… and Irene Howat’s Story of the Month Club… well right now they have a competition on their site to win a year’s subscription to their club.

And finally even though we never used a stroller or swing in our parenting, but I know many of our local readers would love these amazing facebook competitions, head on over to Bambino to find out more… or click on the images to take you to the Facebook competition.

    Hay Zoe, I loved your post about the post… it seems strange that your world is getting colder and ours is just not getting any warmer!!! You would think we would be warming up… but no we aren’t… still all wrapped up and piles of blankets on the beds!!! While I am thrilled at your autumn and the fun of conkers (that we don’t get here, believe it or not!!!)… we really could do with some lazy afternoons at the pool. Wishing you a fab week, always look forward to your posts!!!
