Farewell Autumn...

My favourite season is definitely drawing to a close now. Before it is completely over I thought I'd share my Autumn mantlepiece with you. It will soon be time for it to get all twinkly and festive.
Just need to shake this horrid cold and then I'll be immersing myself in Christmas loveliness...

Half-term fun

It's been such a nice week. I love October half-term. A holiday during my favourite season and early enough in the school year that I can actually enjoy it, rather than spending most of it in an exhausted heap. The Beautiful Girl and I have spent time with friends and with family. We've been on some great days out - the pictures are from our trip to Kenilworth Castle, on Hallowe'en - but spent plenty of time on the sofa too. Cosy, comfy days, just how we like them.
