The happy, settled theme is continuing this week. It feels like we’re setting off into Autumn on the right path – full-speed ahead!
Since the start of term our weekends have been pretty low-key. Last weekend was no exception. On Sunday afternoon we visited Wicken Fen, one of our favourite happy places. I’ll tell you more about this wonderful, sunny afternoon in its very own post – but blackberries, fudge and a boat trip were some of the highlights.
On Sunday I realised that I’ve been living under a stone. Despite my regular use of social media I had somehow missed the fact that last weekend was Downton weekend. How can this have happened? I still can’t fathom it. Maybe if I’d bothered to get my free paper in Waitrose…? Anyway, I watched the Go-Between instead. Which was very good, but every bit as sad and depressing as I remembered. I need to find a way to watch Downton on some kind of catch-up, pronto!
Tuesday and Wednesday were all about celebrating the arrival of Autumn. Gathering together my finds and making a simple wreath.
This week has also been about matching nail varnish to clothes…
One really exciting thing to share with you is that I’ve finally got a new (to me) bike! James and I now have matching Brompton folding bicycles. On Friday we went back to Wicken Fen for a bike ride in the sunshine.
I just need to work out how to fold mine up and down on my own now! Also as they’re the same colour I obviously need to customise mine with some My Little Pony stickers, or similar.
As usual I’m linking up with Jocelyn of the Reading Residence. I think my word of the week has to be bike!
