Colours of Autumn…

Monday seems to have come around very quickly! We’ve had a lovely weekend, enjoying the weather and Autumn colours. I love going for long walks at this time of year 🙂                                                Hope you had a happy Halloween… We’re spending lots of time on the allotment this…

Hello Autumn

Good morning everyone 🙂 I’m sat here with my cup of tea and breakfast… The heating is on 🙂 I love crisp autumn mornings, looks like it’s going to be a lovely weekend.  I’ll be on the lottie at some point to collect my seeds from our wild flower patch 🙂                 Have a…
