7 quick takes #18 - savouring autumn

Friday, 26 September 2014

I missed last week's 7QT! I had a lot of family stuff going on, to be fair. They come first and all that ;)

Anyway, back on track now. I promise.

I love autumn! Love it. I love it when it's sunny but the air feels cool on your skin. Love crunching through leaves in my boots. Sometimes the temptation (for me) is to start immediately thinking about Christmas as soon as the kids go back to school in September, but really, there's a whole season yet before we start wrestling the Christmas tree out of the loft. So here is my autumn to-do list:


Kick around in the leaves, stomp on them, play with them, admire them ... etc.


Go blackberry picking and then make and eat some sort of crumble


Go to a cafe and drink an overpriced pumpkin-spiced based coffee


See the fireworks on Guy Fawkes' Night and make parkin to celebrate


Burn cinnamon, apple, or cookie dough flavoured candles (mmm) until the smell gets up my nose almost permanently


Make autumny crafts with my niece (this may be forced upon her soon)


Eat a pumpkin! Or a squash! And let Jellybean play with the weird gooey inside bits.

Now I've written it out I'm excited. For all the spider dodging, sudden downpours and wrist-achingly dangerous pumpkin chopping, there are a lot of nice things to do too. Yay for sunny autumn days, for darkening evenings, warm jumpers, and snuggly evenings on the sofa!

So, have I missed anything? What are you doing this autumn? x
