Simply glowing

Yesterday I was tricked into thinking winter had arrived when it was still dark at half six and the kids asked for Ready Brek for their breakfast. This morning however, buy cialis it appears there is no trickery at play, it is dark, I’ve had to put the heating on and I have a hankering after a hot bowl of porridge and a morning under the duvet watching It’s a Wonderful Life. Does this mean summer has bowed out for another year? I fear so. But then of course, between the fair summer months where the air is warmer and the breeze is balmy and the drab winter ones where the snow is constant and the wind is icy, comes the most delicious season of all, autumn.

With autumn, you know what you’re going to get. There’s no tease of a spell of six weeks of blistering hot sunshine leading to much planning of picnics, beach trips, short floaty dresses and paddling in the sea. You know it’s going to be crisp and a little nippy around the nose. There is nothing quite like the autumn sunshine. It has a different kind of vibrancy than that in the summer, and it’s usually accompanied by glorious blue skies and a freshness that makes you tingle in a pleasant way.

It’s a great wardrobe season for me too – no need for fake tanning or de-fuzzing of the legs – they ain’t going to be on show.  It’s skinny jeans and comfy flats all the way. Fine knitwear in soft caramels, mink and coffee, pumps in hues of gold, copper and bronze and cosy, knee high boots in soft buttery brown leather topped off with puffy jackets that feel like a squishy hug when you put them on.

Walking in the fallen leaves in one of my simplest pleasures. The crunching underfoot is music to my ears, and the vivid contrast of red, gold and brown leaves which have not yet taken their tumble from the trees overhead fills me to the brim with happiness.

Every time I think of autumn, I remember this particular family photo, before Little Monster Blue came along, and that’s the only thing missing from this picture.  The rest of it, is just perfect.
