Carving The Pumpkin.


Last night we decided to carve the pumpkins ready for Halloween! If you saw my last (first) post you’ll have seen we grew a couple of pumpkins in my parents garden, there was a ¬†massive pumpkin as a smaller one. The massive pumpkin really was too big to put in our house so we’re going to give it to Fred’s nursery so all the kids can get stuck in hollowing it out!

We kept the smaller pumpkin and Fred’s Granddad came over to help carve it ūüôā


Freddy had a great time with Granddad scooping out the insides of the pumpkin and getting messy!



And this is what they came up with! Fred was so pleased!


…but then this morning he woke up and wouldn’t go downstairs because of the ‘scary pumpkin’. He got halfway down the stairs and could see the pumpkin on the kitchen table and started crying bless him! We had to turn the pumpkin around and put a towel over it!

Hopefully he’ll get used it to before Friday when we go trick or treating! xxx


An Introduction.


Well Hello!

I thought I’d write a little introduction to kick things off with my new blog – Tales of The Puffin K. Yes I know this is a bit of an odd name! The idea of this blog is that it’s going¬†to be a parenting / lifestyle blog that covers¬†basically the other side of my life to¬†Thou Shalt Not Covet¬†– my beauty and fashion blog. I toyed with the idea of including these posts on my TSNC blog but I decided to separate them as the different styles will appeal to different readers.

You’re probably wondering what does Tales of The Puffin K actually mean?¬†Well my lovely boy Fred has been affectionately nicknamed The Puffin since he was very small, and¬†it just kinda stuck since he was a baby! I imagine he won’t be very impressed with it when he’s fifteen!


Every year we grow veg in my parents garden (as ours is so small) and my favourite of everything has to be the giant pumpkins! Ollie’s grown some really massive ones in the past, this year they’re not quite so big but still pretty impressive!


Fred loves going to see the pumpkins and giving the biggest one a cuddle, bless him!



I thought I’d keep my first post short and sweet, soon I’ll be showing off our pumpkin carving skills and telling you about our other adventures!

As this blog is brand new, I’d love it if you –¬†Follow my blog with Bloglovin¬†and please leave me your links too. I’d love to follow more parenting and lifestyle blogs!
