I can’t quite believe we are fast approaching Autumn – the nights are certainly drawing in and the mornings are darker and damper. Autumn, for me always signifies the biggest change out of all the seasons – probably because it heralds the start of a new school year!
The summer has been wonderful and we can’t complain this year – it may well last into September.
To welcome the start of a new season, I’ve added a variety of Autumn/Halloween goodies to the website – some are familiar favourites, others are completely new. They even have their own category on the website! If you really want to be organised, there’s the Christmas category too! This is a work in progress with lots more items to be added as and when they get made.
Enjoy the last few days of August and long may the warm days continue!

Don’t get me wrong, I am partial to a school summer holiday – no pesky packed lunches or clock watching come to that matter. I do feel that these holidays are rumbling on a little too fast for my liking. Now we are approaching mid August it does seem like the holidays will be over before we know it.
We have done lots of varied activities this year, now that the boys’ are older, it means we can be a little more adventurous. Holidays wouldn’t be the same unless we saw their friends, but this year activities have involved some tennis lessons and a great afternoon kayaking (not me!). I enjoyed sitting in the sun on a picnic bench doing absolutely nothing – a completely unique thing for me!
We also ventured further afield into Brighton for the day. I love Brighton – lots of vintage, lots of retro, and lots of kitsch (too much so for the rest of the family). A fair bit of ‘plastic’ did work it’s way back with us, it would be rude not too, and of course when would I have the opportunity again!
No trip to the seaside can pass without going onto the pier and enjoying the rides, ice cream, candy floss and skimming stones into the sea – bliss!
Until the next time!
