We never got to celebrate autumn in our little house last year as we didn't move in until November 30th. So this year i have decided to go all out and welcome in autumn with a bit of decoration. Saturday we took a walk in our local country park and collected seed heads grasses and pine cones to decorate the mantle piece. We also managed to fill a whole carrier bag with chestnuts to roast in the week and I bought a pumpkin to carve, (excuse the pen marks! Ash very nastily burst out laughing at the pen marks when he saw it)
We cooked a roast, i wrote a letter and we hunkered down to prepare for the much awaited storm everyone had been talking about on the news. They called in Hurricane Jude and in some parts of the UK we saw record breaking winds of up to 99mph. Luckily we survived unscathed, only the neighbors fence blew down and my trains were all cancelled yesterday into work so i had a day at home which was lovely! but other than that there was nothing to report. Thank god!
The nights are drawing in and its now dark by 5pm! Winter is on her way and i can feel her icy claws creeping up on us.
Oh that reminds me i need to get our chimney swept before winter, i think we may be needing those log fires!
