Loving Autumn Living

I don’t know what it is about when a season changes, I always think this is my favourite, that is until the next one comes along, however, I really do love autumn as it means that there are certain things I’ll enjoy doing with my family and friends which only feel good during this season.

As the Bed and Breakfast business slows down, this means we have more time to invite friends round for slow cooked, heart warming food.

Just a few of my favourite Autumn moments and there are plenty more, plenty of hot drinks, mulled cider, the harvest festival, reading even more books, playing games on rainy days, baking many cakes, making soup…..what are yours?

Oh Christmas Tree..

Choosing our Christmas Tree every year, is always a family event for us to find the perfect one, since moving to North Devon, we have struggled year after year to find one that isn’t from a garden centre, so I’m really pleased to have found this company in North Devon!

Here’s a picture of last years tree, our search starts next weekend, so I’ll keep you updated on this years tree very soon!

Precious memories

As my boys grow older, they no longer ask me to sing to them when tucking them into bed, which has made me a little sad, so to remind myself & them of this precious moment we used to share, I’ve found these images & I’m planning to do something similar on my staircase wall. Can you guess what the song was?
