Forest Mushrooms

Since stumbling upon a beautiful fairytale toadstool I’ve been longing to find them once more. After seeing someone post about a visit to Half Moon Common in the New Forest I decided it was a spot I wanted to go to, to try and find them once more.

A little bit of looking under ferns and by silver birch trees, and we gasped when we found what we’d come looking for!

An Autumn Walk by the Water

Show me someone who doesn’t love autumn and I’ll show them every reason they should. It’s a shame that we’re near the end of it and that winter is nearly upon us, but as it’s my second favourite season I can’t complain too much. I sit writing this as much of the UK has been covered by snow, with more due tomorrow, and it feels as though my county is the only one which seems to have been missed. Next time I’m sure!

Stuck in my Mind

Have you ever lost your voice? I mean, REALLY lost your voice?

I mean the losing of a voice to the point where you think you’ve forgotten how to speak

When you open your mouth and nothing comes out, not even a whisper and you genuinely wonder if you’ll ever be able to speak again?

The Girl in the Yellow Dress

When you’re doing your weekly food shop minding your own business and walk past the dress of dreams you have no choice but to pick it up and put it in your trolley

A Month of Adventures {October 2017}

And so my favourite month in the calendar is nearly up and we’re hurtling into our busiest 2 months of my year. The months where we already have something planned for every weekend and then a much needed 10 days off together as a family over the Christmas break. Before I get ahead of myself, lets focus on the month that was October

Wooly Hats, Welly Boots and Sunny Autumn Skies

Oh autumn you’re beautiful, you bring the most striking sunsets and gorgeous skies, and I’m totally and utterly in love with you. If only you’d last longer, continue to provide us colourful scenes and ensure the grey skies stay away, that would be just perfect

An Autumn Break in a Camping Pod

I’m the one who is always planning our next big adventure and more often than not the hubster goes along with it, so when I told him in September that I’d booked a weekend away in a camping pod in the middle of October he looked at me like I was a mad woman…who goes camping in October? This family does!

Fields Lined With Orange

Every year since J has been walking we have been pumpkin picking. This year was no different, although we went armed with a wheelbarrow as I’ve learnt from previous years J likes to pick the biggest one she can find!

Things to do in Autumn

I often get asked why I love Autumn so much – there is no denying it’s my favourite season. I write this as I’m sat in a warm, cosy knit, and it just makes me smile. The heating is on, the house is toasty, and I although the hubster’s in shorts and t-shirt (polar opposite to me) I couldn’t be happier. There’s something about being snug and content in your own surroundings and thinking of new activities and things to do in this beautiful season

Autumn Fun {Living Arrows 9/10/17}

Finally feeling back on form (and becoming a whirlwind of energy in the house!) this one and I went out for a walk on Thursday evening. It was one of those typically beautiful autumnal days, with crisp skies, warm sun and vivid colours
