I love autumn. My birthday falls halfway through, Halloween and Bonfire Night are in autumn and that means lots of yummy food, fireworks and fires.
A couple of years ago, my mum made some of the most amazing Parkin. This year we are on a gluten-free thing so we can’t have the usual food for this time of year but for Halloween mum made a really nice pumpkin pie alternative. And of course there are all the sweets and toffy apples and cinder toffy and so on…. I never actually get to eat a lot of that stuff as I am dairy intolerant and keep my sugar levels down, but the things I do have are always amazing.
There are always fireworks going of for miles around come this time of year and two nights our neighbours had a good little show. It was quite funny, I was eating dinner at the table and suddenly there was a big white flash followed by a big loud bang and I literally jumped out of my skin.
And then after the fireworks were finished we had a black out. All the lights went of here and in our neighbours house for about a minute. It was actually quite scary.
We always have a bonfire for the 5th of November. Although I’m actually quite nervous of fire I do love watching the flames lick round the logs and boxes and the smell of smoke as long as it doesn’t get in my hair and eyes.
In my house we actually have three open fires downstairs, although we only use one, and in the kitchen we have a Rayburn. This means that downstairs is always warm and cosy which recently I LOVE.
And then usually because of all the events going on, friends are hosting parties. And normally I go to those except for this year.
Aside from all of that, I love the colours, the smells and the crispness of autumn. The leaves falling from the trees in an array of reds and yellows and oranges and browns and greens. The smell of leaf litter, mushrooms and damp. And the crisp, clear, coldness of the air, causing my breath to gather in little puffs of clouds.
I seem to be on a roll! Ok I need to stop with that…
