Hello & Happy November!
I know I say this a lot but I don't know where the last month has gone? The days have literally been flying by and before we know it Christmas will be here.
This time of year is my favourite. It's the lead up to Christmas that charms me. The music, the dark evenings, the Christmas catalogs (I'm a sucker for a Boots catalog), Starbucks hot chocolate..the lot!
Even making leaf compost got me excited. On Gardeners World last Friday (I know I sound so old but it's such a relaxing program to watch!) they said that if you collect your leaves and keep them damp, after a year you will have a really good quality compost. So we gathered the leaves and made our pile at Ian's house. Although we do not have our own home we feel that it's good to put these skills into practice so one day we will know exactly what to do and how to do it.
I'm planning on going to a few Christmas fairs in the next few weeks so i'm really excited about that and I will of course be blogging about it.. It's the pre-Christmas events that get me giddy : )
As it is bonfire night tomorrow my family & I will be celebrating with our usual little BBQ, bonfire and a few fireworks so that's something else to look forward to.
Hope you have a fab weekend,
