The girls in the office were moaning today about the end of summer and the approach of Autumn. Well I, for one, am delighted that Autumn’s nearly here , so wrap up and enjoy my Autumn Love List:
Proper, thick, warm tights can work miracles and can turn unshaven, pasty, mottled legs into gorgeous, slim, supermodel pins. Magic!
2) Autumn Food
Goodbye skinny, virtuous salads and hello steaming pots of hearty casseroles and stews…..mmmm……
3) Sloe Gin
Wait until the first frost (which, based on the weather recently, won’t be too long) then pick loads of luscious sloes, bottle them up with plenty of gin and crack open a fine vintage bottle from a previous year for ‘quality control’ purposes
The crackle of flames, smoke on the breeze, hot mulled cider, holding hands with gloves on, fireworks, chunky scarves, warm kisses on cold cheeks. What’s not to love?
5) Crunchy Walks
Toddler-Not-So-Tiny-Temper loves these – forest walks that take twice as long because there are just so many leaves to kick
So come on everyone, cheer up, put the suncream away and embrace Autumn!
