My October At A Glance

In A Nutshell:
During October, I got a puppy! This is something I've dreamed of for so long, and due to a recent change in circumstances, this dream was realised. Meet Wilson, the Springer Spaniel:
He's adorable, playful and great company! I can't imagine life without him now. He's almost 13 weeks old and is enjoying his walking and he's doing well with training.
I also celebrated my 27th birthday during October and received some lovely gifts! I've almost finished all of the edible ones!

Cinema Trips:
Bridget Jones's Baby - In the run-up to watching this, my Mum, sister and I watched the first two films and couldn't wait to see this one! We really enjoyed it; it was really funny, had a good story and it had a good ending. I'd definitely recommend watching this if you're a fan of the original films. I think the first film remains my favourite! ☆★★★★

Books Read:
The Boy at the Top of the Mountain by John Boyne - This is an intriguing, yet chilling read, about an orphaned boy, Pierrot, who ends up living with his Aunt in Hitler's German mountain retreat.  Pierrot is impressed by Hitler's power and stature, and they become close quickly, opening Pierrot's eyes to a whole new world. ☆★★★★

How was your October?
