Pumpkin Picking at Brooksgrove Farm, October 2017

This weekend, it was time for our annual "pumpkin picking" at Brooksgrove Farm, Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire.  I know we could pick them up from the supermarkets closer to Halloween but I think it's great to show the kids where the pumpkins grow (every year I mean to grow pumpkins with the kids at home but we always forget until October- Brooksgrove Farm sell Pumpkin Plants earlier in the year so if our seeds don't flourish we could buy plants) and to support local family farmers.  Read on to find out all about our time picking our pumpkins.

Style: Five Ladies Watches- a Gift Guide

I was always what they call a "watch person" forever wearing one on my wrist until a few years ago.  My watch broke and I started using my phone to tell the time.  This worked adequately...until my phone battery kept dying on me (it goes so quickly) and I often found myself out and about without any immediate way of telling the time.  I also felt less in control of time without my trusty watch at my side to  constantly keep me informed of the date and time.  Therefore for my birthday this year a watch was top of my list (thanks, Mum) and I now wear a sporty, waterproof watch, which displays both date and time, every day.  I feel more like the old organised me again (maybe one day I'll even start acting organised once more).  

Here are five of my favourite watches for different times in your life to make the perfect gift for a special occasion or Christmas:
