Autumn is here….
Autumnal Inspiration: My eyes lit up when I saw this and I wanted to share it. It’s from “elements for inspiration”. It encapsulates all things autumnal!
Footwear: I am putting away my sandals, flip flops, wedges and bringing down my winter boots, shoes….uuuuggggthhh. I held on to the bitter end with the toes out but it’s not fun running around town in flip flops and your toes getting wet with the puddles.
Winter clothes: Leggings, jeans, tights, boots, jumpers, coats, lovely layers, scarves (not woolly ones, too soon). I am a great one for neck scarves. I have loads, I have my eye on one Laura from Buy now blog later is wearing here from Primark.
Socks: I have to start wearing sock…………and no one will see my pretty toe nail polish…
Tan is fading: Frowned upon by many but my natural tan is all but gone……….boohoo
Duvet: I have one of those duvets that you can split into two togs. A light one when split and when joined together, a heavier one. I am not ready to bring down the duck down one yet! Today I joined the two duvets together.
Stove: The stove was lit last night for the first time since, I would say, March of this year. I have a love affair with my stove in my Living room. When it is lit everything is cozy, warm and safe!
Evenings closing in: I hate this. It is dark at 8pm in the evenings now and it is challenging for those who have outdoor jobs to do in the evening, like Hubbie and I with the farm.
Dark Mornings: This I hate equally as the evenings closing in.
Nip in the air: It is definitely colder, maybe it’s the wind chill factor but I find it colder
Halloween: Not much to say but I love this holiday, Pumkins, Pumkins, Pumkins. I refuse to entertain Christmas until Halloween is out. I am a huge one for both holidays.
Hot Porridge: I am a great fan of porridge. For summer I have it cold and soaked overnight in natural yoghurt and I add fruit to it. Now it’s hot from the microwave made with low fat milk, with some maple syrup.
Why not try Flahavan's Real Fruit Porridge., I love it and I am good to myself by sprinkling on some cinnamon.
Colours: The colour orange (my favourite), plums, navy, dark green, gold….
Fruit: Apples and blackberries…ooh there is a jam there…..
