the nights are getting a bit colder and the days shorter we tend to think a bit differently, thick cardigans come out and shoes replace sandles, I like to get some books out to flick through
I read the "what to look out for in autumn" book to Alexa and we collected some acorns and fir cones on our walk,
squirrel nutkin soooo loves nuts!!
As it's not quite glove weather yet I've started to knit some wrist warmers, they have a nice lace pattern that goes on the edge and the pattern said knit it all in one but as I couldn't quite get my head around the pattern I decided to knit it seperately.
Last night it was dark at 8.30 so I thought I'd best be getting some candles ready to light I got some lovely red holders in the sale but I'm keeping those for christmas time, I need to look for some silver coloured ones aswell,
and I found those CK candles left over from last year in the back of the cupboard.
I bought this lovely old "carnation" receipe book from a fair so I thought I'd give the lemon crunch deserts a go I'm putting those lovely biscuits in instead of ginger nuts as they're so scrummy,
and I shall make myself a "brew" in mr oswald owl or the pumpkin mug great size for hot chocolate too you can get just the right amount of marshmallows on the top!!
Tonight I'm going to join the WI (if they'll have me) don't realy know much about it but I've been to a few fairs and everyone seems realy friendly, I'll let you know how I get on, I'll be wearing my new red shoes for luck!!
Before I go I must show you this
I saw these mince pies on the shelves last week now I think the beginning of september is far too early, what do you think???
See you soon,
