Soon, all the leaves on the trees will turn gold and red - which is the loveliest sight ever, the grass stops growing, and all the berries appear juicy and red on the trees - a veritable feast to be collected by little animals everywhere preparing for the long winter sleep (I wish I could have a long winter sleep!)
The weather gets cooler and crisper - something else that I always welcome, and I love those misty autumn early mornings which are quite peculiar to Britain. I even quite like it getting dark earlier and the shorter days because it means I can get cosy on the sofa without feeling guilty because I should be out 'doing' more. I especially love those winter days when the sky is bright blue and the ground is frosty white - and the sun is shining a pale wintry yellow and everything is still and quiet first thing in the morning. It's quite magical.
When I was a girl I used to really like the beginning of October because that meant that that Halloween was coming, and then Bonfire night, and then it was just one more month until I could start getting excited about Christmas!!! Now I don't really like Christmas because it just means going into the red at the bank !!!
This October I have Amelia's Christening to look forward to - did I tell you that I have been chosen from thousands to be her Godmother? Honoured!!!
Anyway - enough waffling - whatever you decided to do on this last Bank Holiday Monday of the year - I hope you have fun !!!
