I feel like i need to write a catch up post as i have so many photos to share and haven't been able to visit this space in a while. I was feeling a little deflated for the first half of this week but now some enthusiasm and excitement is returning as me and D are going to Cornwall on Saturday insha'Allah! We are going to spend a week at my dads house (he lives there) and i think im looking forward to the charity shops, the fresh windy seaside air, the open natural views and the fun and laughter that will most likely exude from D. It will be a great opportunity for him to bond with his grandparents.
The weather has certainly become truly Autumnal this week, i really love it. I wore my winter coat for the first time in this half of the year yesterday and we also had gloves on our fingers and a winter hat on D's head.
The trees still have plenty of leaves left to shed but they are looking browner and the branches are definitely more bare than in the Summer. This morning i looked out across the garden to see that there was lots of cold condensation on the inside of our greenhouse and wet dew on the grass and it looked cold out there again. We had our central heating on for most of today, another first since last Winter.
Tomorrow i shall be doing the last bits of laundry, ironing, packing our suitcase, cleaning the house and trying to get into bed early in preparation for the long day of travelling on Saturday. So i may not be back in this space for another week and a half insha'Allah.
What are you doing in the next few days?
