Just take the seasons one at a time


I am being constantly bombarded by Christmas this week......every time I go on line or look onto my email I get more & more information about what to buy & how to decorate for this Christmas.......

yes      OK     I love Christmas .......I get all excited about decorating the house........planning & cooking the food.....buying the presents........but I refuse to start doing this before......

1. Halloween is over.....

2. Bonfire Night is over.....

3. My Birthday is over......

4. The leaves have finished falling from the trees and Autumn is over......

So I will not be posting anything else to do with Christmas before any of those events.......

Well perhaps I might make the Christmas cake ........ and the puddings........but anything else ....no way!!

So, to counteract all these Christmas interruptions here are some of my Autumnal Inspirations........



In essence these are all the reasons I love the autumn.......

Warm fires, snugly socks and rich, creamy hot chocolate.......


Cutting and stacking the logs .......... and bringing the first full log baskets into the house.....


Autumnal inspired foods - squashes, pumpkins, soups and stews....



Check out all these (and more on my) Pinterest site .......
