Autumn months are for living slowly; for taking your time over a hot drink and a great book, for watching films in the dark, snuggled up under a blanket whilst candles flicker in the background. There’s no sunshine and sweltering hot days to make you feel uncomfortable and guilty for staying in doors, no urgent or societal need to get out and enjoy some crammed beach or sweat over a BBQ. September through to November you’ll find me cosy and content, enjoying the little things.
For todays Blogtober post I thought I’d share with you a few of the Autumn activities I enjoy most of all.
It’s Tuesday 31st October, 2017 and that can only mean one thing; it’s the end of Blogtober and I officially completed the whole challenge!
Although to some it may not sound like a big deal, Blogtober has been incredibly hard and challenging – and I’m so proud of myself for completing it. I managed to write an impressive 31 posts over the month of October, writing them amidst a house move, work and a busy schedule. In all honesty I didn’t think I’d be able to do it but now that I have I feel really pleased.
For my final Blogtober post I want to reflect over the month of October and Blogtober and share my personal highlights with you, as well as a few things I have found challenging and what I have taken away from it all.
Sunday morning was chilly and crisp yet filled with streaky sunshine; the perfect Autumnal morning for pumpkin picking.
I’m not a baker, but I do enjoy a nice slice of cake and greatly appreciate those skilled enough to bake yummy treats. Although I’m a proficient enough cook, my foray in to baking has taken me as far as burning some misshapen biscuits with my mother when I was much younger.
I don’t know if it is the change of season or the fact that I’ve just started watching Great British Bake Off for the first time ever (let’s be honest, it’s probably the latter) but lately I have really had the urge to try my hand at baking.
