Which reminds me, I need to pay a wee visit to October First Lighting for a few quotes… Oops, there goes my internal monologue, getting out again!
To me, October = autumn. I know, I know…what about September you ask? I always feel September is still clinging on to summer, and trust me here in Edinburgh we try to grasp any summer we can! It’s not exactly been glorious sunshine here since June!
So though the leaves have yet to change colour and the air is not quite crisp, today signifies (for me at least) the beginning of the new season. And of course there are all the things I’m looking forward to with the coming of autumn…
Fun with pooch.
Of course fun is had with pooch all year round, but the change from summer is always a relief where I stay…my wee guy is ball-obsessed, which makes walking him in the park near my house sometimes problematic with all the footballs flying about – he doesn’t know where to run first! I always feel awful when he steals someone’s football or even worse, accidentally bursts it! So when the air becomes a tiny bit cooler and people head back to work (or school), I can let him run to his wee heart’s content!
Warming, lovely stews and soups..
I love my Le Creusets. I adore how I can chuck some lovely ingredients into a cast iron pot and let everything bubble away for hours. Take one piece of meat, add onions, vegetables, potatoes and if you’re feeling frisky some chillies (maybe rice, barley…whatever you fancy!). I’m a slow cooking kinda girl!
Shh…but I love boots, funky tights, sweaters, hats and jackets! I always feel a little ‘unfinished’ without a jacket, but then don’t feel quite right covering up when it’s super warm. Maybe folk don’t feel like this in warm places, but here in Scotland we can’t take warm weather for granted! So I’m definitely looking forward to some super pretty pieces in grey, camel, jewel toned plush reds, navy and aubergine!
