Here we are at the beginning of October and somehow it feels as if the summer has relinquished her hold and has slipped quietly away, leaving the autumn to take centre stage. I suspect we still have some lovely warm sunshine to enjoy now and then, but each day will be precious and must be thought of as the last, in order to take full advantage. No more squandering! Summer has been wonderful and we have loved every second of it. The children had a last dip in the sea in late September; incredible really considering they were splashing about in the Irish Sea and not the Pacific! Autumn is making herself known to us by gently tugging leaves from the trees, whipping up a stiff breeze and cloaking the garden and countryside in a heavy dew fall each morning. She also insists that we bake and eat in a different way and the cotton dresses so beloved by sun worshippers are making their way to the back of the wardrobe for another year. It's Autumn; bring it on!
After all, Strictly has started again and if they can do all that, I can manage a few coasters and montereys!
Have a lovely day and enjoy the magic of Autumn.xxx
