I love Autumn, and no sooner than I thought it had arrived it left!!
Only the other week as the days, and especially the nights, started to cool I was dreaming about putting on my winter-weight duvet and snuggling up at night, pulling my warmer jumpers and cardigans out of storage and packing away the lighter Summer coloured t-shirts for another year. It's a good job I didn't react to my first thought isn't it.
Last week was a sweaty mess in every sense of the word. Watering plants to keep them alive was suddenly top priority, well along with trying to keep my little place cool for the dogs and Ginger to escape from the sun. How Alan managed down South wearing a shirt and suit each day at work I have no idea!
Yes, the nights are drawing in at a fast pace and the darker evenings are a balm to my soul but I need cool, lots of cool at this time of year. Thank goodness it seems to be cooling down to more Autumnal temperatures this week ... and fingers crossed it stays that way.
Now all I need to do is go to the car wash and get that Saharan dust that came down in the thundery showers the other day, washed off my car.
