It’s OCTOBER and we can officially get as cosy as we like whenever we like!!
Jeez, I was only just out in the garden swanning around in maxi dresses and now I’m hunting around the bedroom floor in the dark for a thermal vest (I feel the cold).
I can’t quite believe that this time of year, my most FAVOURITE time, is passing by so very quickly.
Stop, slow down, don’t go by so fast!!
I want to savour you, enjoy you and revel in the build up to Christmas because you KNOW what comes after Christmas!!!!!
I’m not going to say the ‘J’ word just yet but you have to admit that time is going by pretty quickly.
Shall we collectively grab it by the neck and force it to slooooowwwww doooowwwwnnnn?
So, what does October hold for us here at this very old house in West Sussex, England?
Well of course we’re already preparing good ‘n’ proper for Halloween. I am really pleased that Halloween and the celebrating of it has taken off to such an extent in this country. I’m not talking about the commercialisation of yet another date in the calender but rather that it gives us another chance to invite folk over and have lots to eat and drink.
You’ll notice that there are many pumpkins in this post. You may also remember that I wrote about how to plant pumpkins way back in June 09 sometime.
Many of you wrote to me to ask how my pumpkins were doing. Would you like to see them?
Well if you glance at the picture above, you’ll see them….or should I say ‘it’.
There it is. The top left hand side of the picture just above the leaf sack.
Shall I go in closer?
Yup, that my friends is how much success I had with my pumpkin patch!!!
The plants got a horrific mildew due to a wet July and bad watering habits from yours truly.
Coupled with the Pumpkins being eating by animals before they really had a chance to get going. Oh dear.
Oh well, not to worry, there’s always next year!
WELCOME TO OCTOBER!!!!!!!
Boy are we going to have some FUN.
Lots of love,
