You know its Autumn when...

You know its Autumn when you start cooking stews, harvest your mammoth crop (yes, my one and only apple!)

My Mums gold fish were also impressed with my apple and came to have a look when I took the photo at her house...

You know its Autumn when the light changes in your home,

You know its Autumn when you spend nearly £15 on Guilty Pleasure magazines…

You know its Autumn when you start finishing of crafty things you forgot about during the summer that never was…but was also amazing for other sporty reasons…
(this is my knitted Jane Torvill, I still haven't knitted poor old Christopher Dean!)

and finally you know its Autumn when the flip-flops/wellies get put away and the sensible 
shoes come out. 

Before we know it, it'll be time for twinkly lights (can't wait!) x 


  1. Jane is looking good, she just needs her skating partner now! Ada :)

    1. Haha, I have a feeling she may have a long wait!! x

  2. Oh your only apple is (was) very nice! I hope next year you have more apples. ;O)

    1. Thank you, it was a little sharp (sour) still never mind!

  3. I do love those sensible shoes - how grand they look too.
