Hello everyone, hope you’re all ok.
This past week has been a little bit easier than the last, but not by much as my mum and I had to go into town to get the rest of my dads birthday presents as we couldn’t actually go and get them when we originally wanted to, as we were having problems with the car, but luckily we managed to get them on Saturday (his actual birthday), so we could give them to him on Sunday as that was when we properly celebrated it due to my dad working on his birthday, and he didn’t get home until past 8pm, by which time he was exhausted and just wanted to go to bed. He did have a good birthday (even if it was celebrated the day after) and he loved his presents ☺ So that made the week better!
Anyway, back to the topic of today’s post. If you’re like me and been very busy that you haven’t realised that Halloween is next week, you might not be feeling in the mood for it, so in order to get myself feeling ‘Halloweeny’, I thought what better way to do that than to watch some Halloween movies, so I’ve done a list to try and help.
