Here’s my list of Autumnal pleasures:

  • Kicking up leaves – who can resist?
  • Time to pull on a woolly hat!
  • Sit by a real fire.
  • Pour yourself a glass of rich-bodied, red wine.
  • Frost! And frosty breath fun with your little (or big) one.
  • Darker mornings (I know, not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love them!)
  • Waking up to the sound of rain pitter-pattering on the window (ditto above, in brackets).
  • Conkers! Leaves of every colour! Seeds! Collecting them all!
  • Squirrel spotting.
  • Damp earth imparting its musty smell. Mushrooms!
  • Cinammon and spice-scented candles.
  • The light! Golden, magical, warm (occasionally).
  • Drinking your first hot chocolate of the colder seasons (made the Italian way, so thick you can stand a spoon in it).
  • Front row seats to the show Nature’s been busy planning the whole year long.
  • Bed socks (not worn in bed at all, instead worn whilst curled up on the sofa watching Downton Abbey).
