Well, it's officially my favourite month of the year! Leaves are falling off the trees, it's getting darker in the evenings, I found my first conker AND it's nearly Halloween! Definitely my favourite.
Spiced pumpkin lattes are back (oh my goodness!) and I'm in the midst of decorating my shop window at work all scary-like.
Halloween has always been huge for me, I love the supernatural and all things that go bump in the night- even if I'm a massive scaredy cat. I'm always hugely excited all the way through October just waiting for Halloween whether I'm hosting a party, going out or just staying in with snacks, my skeleton onesie, A Nightmare Before Christmas and Harry Potter.
This October though, I have even more to look forward to! My friend from home has a little girl, Indiana, who is turning two so she's having a birthday party/ house party for all our friends to get together. Which in turn means I'm reunited with my best friend of 13years, Kiran. Things may get messy! Being in Coventry also means seeing the family and on Sundays I get to enjoy my mums wonderful Sunday dinner and walk in the park with Stacey and Toffee.
October is also the month in which I have just over a week off work and the very first thing I'm doing is getting tattooed! Aaaaaaaaah I'm so excited! I haven't been tattooed in over a year due to being tested to see if I'm a kidney donor for Stacey. I had a miniture tattoo done whilst Stacey was in hospital (more on this in another post) but this is pretty big. I have over 30 tattoos now, most of them small, but I'm starting my first half sleeve. It's beautiful and delicate and I can't wait!
This year my beautiful friend Charli and I decided we were going to do scare fest as I've never been before and it looks awesome. We had been to Alton Towers the year before when it was all decorated for Scarefest but couldn't afford to go. However, when driving to and from work I noticed a sign saying 'Fear Forest' so I googled it ( not whilst I was driving) and we've decided to do that instead! It's in a forest, obviously, and it has 3 mazes to walk round and be terrified out of our wits and a Halloween themed bar to calm our nerves afterward! I'm so tempted to dress up as Alice from Alice in Wonderland to wander round the mazes!
So that's my October! Have you guys got any plans? And do you love Halloween as much as me?
Love Kerry xoxo
