Bye, Bye Summer

I have my socks on. That’s normally the sign for me. I love my flip flops, and at that first ray of sunshine and warmth, out they all come and summertime commences. But now I’m in socks. And the last few nights, I’ve even put my slippers on.

With autumn looming crisp and fresh, I look back on our summer, our first with Little Man, and one full of more outdoor adventures and picnics than ever before! These are a few of my favourite moments…

So what will autumn bring? Well, my Converse are out now. I do like these, too, and having flip-flopped about, I actually find I do quite welcome the change. My business will certainly be keeping me busier for the next few weeks, Boo’s at preschool two days a week now and she’s making the most of every second of that. Little Man is enjoying more freedom now that he’s getting about with speed, and looks close to walking any time now. So, sad that I am that our wonderful summer together is over, autumn is shaping up to be good fun, too, and this year I think it’ll look a little different. You see, I am determined to keep on getting the kids outside and having fun, rather than hibernating from now until April, as is my usual habit. We’ve got winter woollies and coats at the ready, so I look forward to walks in the park, nature collecting, leaf rubbing, seed planting, hunting for conkers, duck feeding, trips to the playground and continuing to work outside on Project Garden.

I’ll be on the lookout for fresh ideas to have fun outdoors, so please do share yours with me. What will you all be getting up to?
