So we went pumpkin picking today but to be honest it was a bit of a disaster. Partly because of the crazy wind brought by #stormbrian and partly because my children are completely incapable of behaving themselves 😒 Right now I’m just glad that it’s not half term for us yet, bring on school tomorrow! #realityofparenting

We have been busy this weekend getting out and about in the autumn leaves and visiting the pumpkins, as you can see on my stories. Biggest and Littlest were super cosy and dry in their new @muddypuddlesuk coats and wellies though. How fabulous is the constellation pattern on Biggest's coat? He is obsessed by space and so he was mesmerized by it. We like to get out and about a lot in all weathers but Biggest particularly can get very upset if he feels cold or wet, so I am so glad they have such colourful and quality waterproofs to last them this winter. #muddypuddles #pumpkinpatch #review
If you are heading to a farm this weekend for pumpkins and general fun make sure you wrap up warm with one of our cosy children’s coats, bright bobble hats and new fingerless gloves available for 30 days only with 20% off in our Halloween offer!
