I am ever so happy to finally see such miserable weather. It feels as though October is actually beginning now. At the start of this week I managed to get around four loads of washing dried on the line and as much as I love that (how even old am I?) I’m so excited for cold wet days, and early dark evenings with the fire lit and hot chocolate in the slow cooker.
I live for this time of year.
Because Roo will be showing his wrinkly little newborn face just before Christmas we have to make sure everything is done and ready early this year and it’s sending the organisational part of my brain into overdrive. We put some pumpkins around the fireplace yesterday, the kids Christmas Eve box is pretty much done apart from PJs and we are already binge watching Harry Potter. My heart is happy right now 💛
