Yup, I'm ready !
I enjoyed soaking up the last few warm sunny rays last week
whilst sitting drinking tea in the garden,
and thinking how many leaves there will be fluttering down from our huge
horse chestnut tree
( husband not at all happy about this )
but I am ready now to snuggle up inside and hibernate for a bit.
My sun levels are full after such a lovely, long lasting summer
and I am looking forward to the change that will come with the winter months ahead.
Life will gravitate from outdoorsy to indoorsy
and that's absolutely fine by me.
After all there's so much fun to be had inside....
.... teeny pumpkins have been made
thank you Emma @ My Red Wellies for the pattern
... and have decorated our table across the Halloween weekend
... with a candle lit in the evenings.
Toffee apples have been made
... Halloween tights have been put on
and the day itself was well and truly celebrated
way in to the small hours.
Last bits of garden tidying have been done,
with a lot of help from Otto,
... Homemade bread has been eaten with hot bowls of vegetable soup
and the Autumn blanket has grown so much it
no longer fits in the basket it is being stored in.
The kitchen has been a hive of activity with Beth and Matt
making THE most delicious chicken pie
and the weekend was finished off in pretty much the best possible way.
Yes, there may have been coughs and colds and chest infections :(
but it doesn't matter,
I am indoors and staying indoors.
Happy Hibernating Everyone.
