September in Review



September was a busy month and it’s come and gone already. Lots of appointments as I tried to acclimatize myself to being home from the hospital. I’m still not in a good routine but that’s another matter for another day.

I thought it would be a great idea to reflect each month on what I’ve been doing. I figured here was the best place to write about it. It was a busy month on the blog, I posted reviews, listed my favourite things and talked about how hard it is to let go. I also rebooted my monthly newsletter so if you haven’t signed up for it yet- I highly recommend that you do. (shameless plug)

I thought you also might like to hear about what I did in my real life besides appointments so here are a few highlights.

September began with a trip to the Aberfoyle Flea Market. We always go with my in-laws and always have a great time. A few tips- go early! It’s much less busy and if you have anxiety like me that’s important. There are lots of places to sit down so if you need to sit and rest like I do you’re able to pace yourself. We don’t generally buy a lot but its always fun to look around. We did however pick up this fabulous antique fortune telling cup and saucer. I think it is so cool! And it was only 10.00!



My mom came over and helped me organize the bookshelves in my office. It looks so much better now. As you can see I’m a bit of a collector.


The highlight of the month was our family trip to Niagara on the Lake. We went to the Grand Canadian Steampunk Exposition 2016 held at Fort George and had so much fun. There were lots of people in costume and we discovered this new(to us) band called Abney Park and I just fell in love with their sound. Helpful hint-be sure to bring earplugs to concerts if you’re sound sensitive like I am.

Fiona-On a sad note we returned our kitten Fiona at the end of September. I was really hoping it would work out with her, but after a month we realized that she just wasn’t a good fit for our family. She kept attacking me and it gave me panic attacks. We took her back to the breeder with the hopes that she’d find her a better home. The good news is that she’s already been adopted. This wasn’t an easy decision for us and I still toil over the choice, but I know deep down it was the right one.
