10 Reasons why I love Autumn
Autumn is here!
Can you believe it’s Autumn already? This year has flown by hasn’t it. I’m getting all the feels because I love Autumn for so many reasons and I thought I’d get you in the seasonal spirit by sharing with you my top 10 reasons why I love Autumn so much.
The Boys go back to school !
I’m very much a confident introvert and I feel that in Autumn it’s socially acceptable to stay indoors. You get less invitations to go out and at my age that is only a good thing.
I cannot think of anything worse than being in a nightclub with my younger friends surrounded by youths the same same age as my son!
It’s colder! I’m not a sun-worshipper by any stretch of the imagination. I get pigmentation problems with my skin in the summer, no matter how much sun cream I apply. I cannot really cope in heat above 21 degrees, I get agitated, tired and annoyed. Once it’s Autumn, I feel well, energetic vibrant and my creative juices start flowing.
I live in the countryside, and the beauty of Autumn blows me away! I totally took it for granted when I was younger but for the past several years I see the beauty of the scenery that surrounds me as if I’m seeing for the first time
I hit the casseroles and hearty home cooking in the Autumn and as I overeat in hot weather, I generally lose a little weight and feel much healthier as I get into Autumn.
My main love of Autumn is that it’s almost Christmas and I ruddy love Christmas , so my entire Autumn is spent preparing for Christmas ( apart from a brief interlude for Halloween) and I will watch Christmas movies each Sunday afternoon, wrapped up in my fleecy throw, preferably with it raining outside.
The clothes, jumpers and jeans all the way!! I’m happily a bigger woman and at last I don’t feel the pressure to wear less clothing.
I love going for walks with the boys when it’s Autumn and seeing Reece’s face and wonder when he collects acorns, pinecones and conkers. Dylan has found a lot of pleasure in collecting apples for our older neighbours and eating the apple pies they send us as thanks to him.
