Despite spending many years as one, and being friends to a large number of them at one time, I’ve realised this week that I really do not understand teenagers.
Like, at all.
A sure, yet scary sign that I’m becoming a grown-up.
I try to incorporate a little bit of nature around the house when decorating, so with an abundance of leaves from our autumnal walks and two kids who needed something to do we made a leafy garland.
We could have left the leaves alone and just pegged them up, but the glitter was almost jumping off the shelf at me!
This was a super simple activity for the kids to get involved with, all you need are some leaves, glitter, craft glue, twine and some mini pegs.
I have always been envious of those big, close families. The kind where they really get along, as friends as well as family members.
My own family is a little weird; we don’t all get along, some of us haven’t spoken in years and a fair few have never met. But they’re mine and I love them all the same.
This time of year the woods are such a beautiful place to visit.
The ever changing assortment of colours and the transition of plants and trees as they prepare for colder months is one of natures true spectacles.
