Today Smix has a surprise day off school. We got a text at 11pm last night from the school, all schools over the whole of Ireland are closed today. We are set to be battered by the worst storm in 50 years in a couple of hours. Already we’ve had one huge gust that sent the plastic post box flying down the steps.
We went first thing this morning and bought snacks and fire logs. We are charging up our iPads and getting cosy. I also brought out the Halloween decorations for the living room. It’s a mix of pound shop light up treasures, and TK Maxx, American import pieces. The tobacco candles are also from TK Maxx and my absolute favourite. I always buy them up when I spot them in a store.
The knitted decorations were bought about eight years ago from my local Oxfam.

These gorgeous sugar skull plates were a gift from my brother & sister-in-law.
Lastly, I just had to show you my class, old phone. We recently got WiFi in (we were living in the dark ages) and my Dad brought us this old phone to use as a landline.
