Weekend September 2013

I hope you all have had a great week. Everyone here is back at school and I feel so much more organised with a routine back in place. I did miss having the older two about though at the start of the week but now as I reflect on the week I've got loads of little jobs done that have been put off over the holidays and it's been great having some fun times with our Little Fella.

With the first week of September drawing to a close it's now officially autumn. The chill in the air arrived just in time last weekend and it's time to think about changing the wardrobe. Even this morning we had a slight frost here and it looks like the seasons might just be returning to normal here.

It's interesting that many people here in Ireland including my dad still follow the old Gaelic tradition
that autumn starts in August. But that makes the summer too short for my liking so I'm sticking with the rest of the world.

This is definitely one of my favourite times of year and already my mind is drifting towards comfort foods, warmer clothes, cosy nights in front of an open fire and a good book or two to read over the dark evenings.

Everything homely and comforting just the way I like it.

This weekend I will be busy getting things organised for a very special first birthday which is coming up in the next two weeks. I will have some posts to follow on this shortly so please stay tuned.

Hoping that you have a great weekend, what are your favourite or maybe not so favourite things about the change of season?


  1. I am a fan of autumn, I love getting a few plants for the garden and I like that the children's bedroom isn't ablaze with light in the evenings making a liar of me saying it's bedtime!!!

  2. Hi Joanna, yes I agree with you on that one I had the same problem with my daughter when she was younger. I always gave in though and let her stay up a bit longer - too soft I think!
