Why I Love Autumn
Leaves are falling onto the ground, those big celebration tubs are beginning to grace supermarket shelves and there’s a slight chill in the air. I think it’s safe to say that Autumn may well be here and I could not be happier!
I am currently sat here in a roll neck jumper and jeans feeling very content. I have always had this love for Autumn/Winter, I love feeling comfortable and safe inside and I think this is where my love for Autumn stems from. You just can’t beat that feeling of being indoors in your dressing gown hot chocolate in hand whilst it’s raining outside and lets not even get started on how much soup I can enjoy throughout these cold seasons…a bowl of soup is essential, with crusty bread on the side of course!
Layering is another love for me. In the warmer months you get hot and that results in you having to just sweat like a pig because you can’t be walking the streets naked, but in the colder months you have the option to put an extra blanket or duvet on the bed at night, you can add another jumper on if your cold and most importantly its a brilliant excuse to buy lots more different boots (in case you didn’t know I adore boots) ankle boots, calf boots, knee high boots and timberlands all play an essential part of my Autumn wardrobe, as well as a few pair of thick black tights coupled with a skirt!
Lets not forget that two very important occasions occur in Autumn. Halloween and Bonfire night. I adore both and I think since having my children its made me enjoy them even more than I did before. On Halloween we get lots of Crisps and Sweets in, we carve pumpkins during the day and then when it comes to the evening we sit down, light the pumpkins, eat all the sweets and watch The NightMare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus! It’s a tradition we like to do each and every year and I’m a firm believer in traditions, it gives us something to look forward to!
Moving onto Bonfire Night and I do like to cook that night! Hot dogs, Burgers, Jacket Potatoes and Soup, I just love going all out. We do try go and see a Display but if we can’t make it to one then the kids are more than happy to sit by the window and watch all the different fireworks that the neighbours are letting off!
I do have to mention Candles, I love Candles and I seem to like them more in the colder weather! Yankee Candle have an amazing range at the moment and if you’re a fan like me go sneak a peek at what there offering, link is here
The last thing that I love about Autumn is what follows it, starts with a C and ends with an S. Some people love it, some people dislike it. I bloody love it. Soon as I see all the Christmas products out I get excited like a child, I love to plan and buy everything in the Autumn so that when it comes to December I have time to chill and enjoy the month.
