My phone is full of photos of books I want to read, I loved The Miniaturist.

Wednesday

An innocent meeting with my PhD supervisor ended with me giving up my PhD as illness and time are not working in my favour. Still hurts.

Fairy lights behind my bed? What more could a girl ask for???

 

All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey

I adore Autumn, it is just so autumny. The colours of the leaves changing to gold and browns and red, the crisper morning air, the anticipation of Christmas starts to build and I won’t lie, the fact that it gets cooler is a great draw for me. After all I shaved my head a few weeks ago because I just couldn’t get cold. I am looking forward to it being cold enough to light the fire in the living room, I’ve started using candles more often and falling asleep to the sound of rain is so nice.

September also signals the start of the academic year so Lulu has gone onto Year 1 at Primary school and I have started my PhD, having had to postpone from January this year due to silly illness.

So now I have been getting involved in lots of lovely autumnal activities

I made a pumpkin pie with a brown sugar and nutmeg party crust and topped with caramelised pecans and gold leaf.

I bought lots of gorgeous pumpkin scented candles and my house now smells completely amazing. My favourite is the Pumpkin French Toast.

I bought a beautiful sparkly silver pumpkin that makes me smile every time I look at it.
