This month has been busy to say the least and we are all grateful that life will be slowing down now. The summer seems to have passed in a swirl of memories, mostly lovely memories watching our son grow up too fast. It started with crawling at 6 months and now at 10 months he is almost walking. There is so much to look forwards to, our first walk in the park together, our first walk on the beach but it also remains both of us that one day our little boy will be grown up so we shall make the best of now, every day is another day to watch his eyes light up when he sees something new.
Today it has been crisp autumn leaves on the ground rushing along outside our house, tomorrow I plan a walk to the park to collect these leaves and if we are lucky a few acorns and maybe a conker.
Autumn is my favourite time of year, the colours are spectacular, I love a crisp Autumn morning, the sun shining through the hazy mist creating romantic scenes in the country, reminding me of the more modern version of Pride and Prejudice when she meets Mr Darcy in the field at the end… It also reminds me of the coming cold weather and I look forwards to cuddling up on the sofa with a hot chocolate and my knitting watching and countryside walks wrapped up warm while we watch our breath making shapes in the freezing air. Most people I know love summer, they love the heat and not having to wear coats… well I love the autumn and winter and of course then there is the one thing we are now allowed to talk about in our house for another 2 months…Christmas…….
