watching the hard work
new lawn
stocking the cupboards
autumn on the needles
bringing the last of summer into the house

for us has been tough getting back into the routine of school & work, but i always love the change of this season & the opportunity to prepare for the coming winter, i watched as my hubs has dug over & re-turfed the lawn, i've done some clearing & tidying in the garden {& brought a little of what's left of summer into the house to be enjoyed} G did his bit by planting 25 bulbs as part of his 'beaver' challenge, so {fingers crossed} we will be looking forward to a beautiful tulip display come spring,  i've made 'lots' of jam, all using fruit gifted from our neighbours, which in turn will be gifted back to neighbours & friends, we've eaten a lot of apple related puddings {& discovered i make a mean 'apple puff'} i've got some autumn knitting on my needles, which i'm so looking forward to wearing, embracing autumn all the way!


  1. I love the look of the Autumn Knitting. It looks great. (as does the jam)

  2. What sweet little jam labels, well done for being so organised. I love the colour of your knitting- can't wait to see the finished item x

  3. Me too - well embracing Autumn that is.

    What a beautiful post - you really make me want to start cosying up......and visit home.
