A perfect autumnal day
I have a love hate relationship with autumn. I dislike grey drissley days but a dry bright autumn day cannot compare; morning mists that cling to the fields and vales, the bright colours of the leaves as they prepare to fall, slow cooked evening comfort food. Today was one of those perfect days😃
A chilled out Saturday morning while Mr S went to work saw me have mooch in the oxfam book shop (recipes and photography today) and take a chance to check out some of the new market stalls with their lovely Christmas decorations and gift ideas. For the first year ever I’ve managed to get a head start on Christmas so not much left to get now but I always enjoy a look.
I also managed to squeeze a little study time in before the return of Mr S at lunchtime with my repaired strimmer… the moment I’d been waiting for! Straight to the allotment to cut back some very overgrown grass. The sun was shining so I also cleared a space for onions, garlic and shallots before weeding the asparagus bed.
Very happy to spot one of my saffron crocus in flower. A lovely easy afternoon!
Home to catch a bit of rugby (England made it hard for themselves – sort out the discipline lads) before a classic jacket potato with beans and cheese dinner.
Sometimes it’s all about the simple things in life!
