Autumn fun πŸπŸ‚πŸŽƒ

As I have said many times, Autumn/Winter are my favourite seasons!

I know its chilly but hey, its England, we were made for this weather.

Plus, it’s so pretty 😍

Theres nothing like a crisp autumn walk, frosty, leaves crunching under foot, trees fire bright against a pale sky, wrapped up in cosy jumpers, a hot beverage in hand.

Now tell me that isn’t a delight!?!

Here are some of the ways I’ve been enjoying the Autumn so far!

Me, my sister and my nephews had a great time pumpkin picking, at a local patch πŸŽƒ

We went early Oct to get the most out of our Pumpkins.

I’ve used them to dot around the lounge to create a cosy, autumn vibe. Some will of course be carved on Halloween.

I definitely have a new appreciation for walks since the lockdowns and the pandemic in general.

Theres alot of enjoyment to be had in the fresh air, amongst the trees and pretty plants. I loved our sunny summer walks but in Autumn it’s an even more beautiful experience.

…because I could read anywhere… but, theres nothing better than in my little reading corner, in autumn and winter, because it just feels even more cosy.

I am a big horror film fan so I enjoy the spookiness of Halloween.

Lockdown no 2 was announced this Halloween (Horror!) So I wanted to make it even more fun, because if you can’t enjoy the little things, (even when stuck at home) during a global pandemic, when can you!?

Over the weekend I ended up watching eight different horror films!

β€’Nightmare on Elm St (New) β€’Friday the 13th β€’ Psycho (New) β€’Anabelle β€’ Freddy Vs Jason β€’Nightmare Before Christmas β€’IT (The Original) β€’Hocus Pocus

We like to carve a pumpkin each year, because its just some harmless seasonal fun, and since I had a few from our picking spree, I carved a few.

As well as the films and pumpkin carving, we also listened to some Halloween tuness (until the X-Files theme freaked me out 🀣😱) we had Spooky, mummy sausages and jacket potatoes for dinner (because why should kids have all the fun) and Halloween Hot chocolates to round off the evening.

And a spot of Halloween Animal Crossing!

It was really good fun and it made us forget about the pandemic a bit, a fun weekend/evening spent together.

Because you have to do one of these every year! Come on now.

This was really flippin’ hard 🀣 Yes, I’m that cool.

… and yes I am indeed wearing a Bat onesie in this picture, my traditional Halloween costume/pumpkin carving outfit! πŸ¦‡

Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me!

As a fun little pre lockdown 2.0 activity with my nephews, we went on a Nature Hunt.

They love running about in the park and exploring and they enjoyed it even more than I thought they would (so did I!!)

I spent another lovely pre lockdown day with my niece 😊

What’s more cosy (and delicious) than baking!?!

We had a lovely time together β™‘

Gotta love a Unicorn Cupcake πŸ¦„πŸ§


& finally…

Again, due to Lockdown (thanks Rona!) we won’t be seeing people for a bit, but its timing did coincide with Bonfire Night and so we resurrected a Byford tradition, and got together to celebrate.

Outside, wrapped up, enjoying other peoples fireworks, sparklers, s’mores, soup, jackets, bangers, log burners and catching up!

A great evening! We missed this tradition last year as there was alot going on, so it was great to do it again.


It’s been a little while (probably the Summer hols) since I’ve done a little ‘life’ update and I love capturing memories on here. I think I forget to use my blog this way sometimes when I get carried away sharing about my hobbies.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Stay safe everyone β™‘

Until next time,

Roseanne πŸ™‚
