It's October which means two exciting events numero uno is Finley's birthday on the 26th and of course Halloween. Now I am a bit of a meany, Finley has never actually had a birthday party with friends, I know, I know.....
You see his birthday falls in the half term so we usually go for a day out as a treat. Fin loves potions, crystals, magic and Harry Potter. I remember seeing last year that a friend had been to Chiddingstone Castle in Edenbridge for a School of Witchcraft and Wizarding event - perfect!
I have checked it out and it is running for the second year this October half term, yipee! I am thinking that this will be his birthday treat.
So what happens there? Well, the folk at Chiddingstone Castle are recruiting witches and wizards aged 6 to 10 to join the Castle’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to help the Headmaster on a magical mission!
