I know it's not until the end of the month but I sure do like A Halloween bash! More so now I'm an Auntie and I can use the kids as an excuse to get more involved!
Save the date: October 26th sees the clock's go back..which means the nights will draw in even faster....but on a positive note...we get an extra hour in bed this weekend!
October is the most wondrous month for leaves, YES LEAVES!! I cannot get enough of the rich brown hues...and I just love the*scrunchie noise they make under your feet!
This sees the month I start making myself Hot Chocolate if I'm feeling rebellious...I sprinkle marshmallows on the top..please don't tell my mother....
The colder weather brings out the Mother Hen in me and I can't help but start NESTLING this month, I just want to make more myself warm food, drink even warmer drinks and nestled in front of the fire and the television of course.
The countdown for CHRISTMAS starts this month, lots of stores already have their Christmas wears out and I for one..cannot wait!
WINTER COATS I like to buy a new Winter coat every year...just really in the name of spending and fashion but both of these are good enough reasons.
I have sort of ritual where by I tend to start either making or buying SOUP!! I know lots of people eat/drink soup all year round but I only tend to eat this in the Autumn/Winter months. Disclaimer The soup has to be very thick and accompanied with rounds of chunky bread and lashing of butter otherwise it's a no go!
Cashmere blanket/Jumpers October is the month, I bring these babies back out of storage. You can't beat a good Cashmere jumper. I love watching old Gene Kelly classics's snuggled under a cashmere blanket...
How could I forget Pumpkins...I always carve one out every year, my efforts aren't always particularly spectacular but I guess it's the thought that erm counts!!
