I Love This Time of Year...

What is it about the autumn that I love so much! The older I get the more I appreciate this time of year. Weirdly, the autumn is for me a time of renewal, a chance to start a fresh and a feeling of endless possibility. I love the change in temperature: leather weather my friends and I use to call it when in our teens. I could finally wear my favourite jacket (black biker jacket) without melting along with black doc martins! Bye the way this is all very fashionable again with teenagers and the fact that I wore it the 1st time around makes me older than I care to think about! In fact I still wear leather and recently purchased a pair of biker boots based on a model I bought in 1992. Dressing your so called “age” and other fashion disasters is another blog topic that I am very keen to write about. However, for the purpose of this blog entry I would like to focus on nature’s amazing ability to give us autumn every year. Along with mind blowing burst of colour, I love the smell…slightly damp and rich of soil. I love that the nights get darker and that it feels appropriate to put my pyjamas on at 6.30 because well…the day is over for me quite frankly and I want to be comfortable! I get to light candles and finally eat food rich in carbohydrates without feeling guilty! Have you ever tried making sausages and mash in summer?? It just feels wrong somehow! My husband gets very confused and keeps looking for the salad! So yes… I say yes to autumn!
