For those of you that are in Autumn at the moment, have you got used to the clocks going back, and the darker evenings that are now with us?! It takes a bit of getting used to, doesn’t it?! To be honest, I don’t really mind the darker evenings, as we can make our homes as cosy as possible. I’ve always got a book on the go, but I tend to read even more during these shorter days. I just love how a book can transport you to another place and you can lose yourself for a couple of hours.
I can never have too many books. At this time of the year, I also love to settle down and watch a good, romantic Christmas film. I know - soppy, but I love them. Especially as most of these films take place in America, and there is always snow, and the houses are gorgeously decorated. Deck the halls, and all that! 😊🎄. Of course, the house is decorated with pretty candles, which all adds to the cosy mood.
I have to admit to putting up just a few Christmas things - the rest of them will go up at the end of this month . Too early do I hear you say?? Not for this girl!
I really like to get all my Christmas cards written by the first week in December, at the latest, and my presents bought and wrapped. That way, I can really enjoy the lead up to Christmas, and just spend the time eating mince pies and drinking sherry! NO! I jest - honestly 😊.
Here are a couple of Autumn pics for you. The first one is the colour in my own garden at the moment, and the second one was taken at Saltram House, a magnificent, Georgian National Trust property nearby.
Well, I’ll leave you again for now. Hope you enjoyed the pics. By the time I write my next post, I suspect the house will be fully decorated! Bye for now.
