Hello Autumn

Today marks the Equinox and with it comes the official first day of Autumn – we’ve officially made it to my favourite time of year! It’s been creeping up for a little while, the changing seasons always seem to start earlier than I expect, but there is still plenty to come. The colours on the trees have started to change but there is plenty of green left, ready to turn into the crisp yellows, golds, reds and browns, in time for the leaves to fall and carpet the ground around them.

The temperature is cooling but again has a while to go. Cold may not be the most pleasant, but when it means you can pop on an extra cosy jumper or snuggle down under a soft blanket in the evenings, it becomes a far more pleasant experience.

It’s a great time of the year for food, everything tastes better with added cinnamon after september, which is the excuse you need to get baking and creating sweet treats, filling your home with wonderful smells in the process. There’s nothing quite like a chilly morning with the scent of warm fresh cookies floating through the house.

Mostly though, I’m most excited to get outside. Autumn makes me realise quite how beautiful the world around us is, and it reminds me to get out and get walking as often as I can. I’m looking forward to exploring the woods and forests as the colours change, adventuring through my local area that little bit further.

What are you looking forward to this Autumn?

    Hey! Remember me? It’s been quite some time since my last post, over a month to be exact. If you’re a long time reader, you may have read that in recent months I’ve been trying to focus on myself and my health a little more, and as a part of that I took a little bit of time offline to

  • A Wander in the Garden

    I don’t have a lot to say at the moment, which is unusual for me. I’m not feeling my best, and if I’m honest, things are rather challenging at the moment. I do feel though that I’m heading in the right direction. Although I may not be in the best frame of mind for writing, there are always photos to

  • Minimal Waste in the Kitchen

    As well as decluttering and simplifying my life and home, I’ve been making a conscious effort to reduce waste. There is a lot of information available about this online – many admirable bloggers write of their zero-waste lifestyles, producing only a small jar a year of items that cannot be recycled. Sadly that’s not all that possible for the majority
