Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Can you believe that today is the last day of August, I just can't get my head around how quickly this month, in fact this year has gone. We went into The Range the other day and they were preparing to put out their Christmas Decorations, that just seems crazy right now. Although I don't think anyone will be sorry to see the back of 2020.
We did venture out for a walk yesterday, Paul managed to push the wheelchair ok, we went very slowly and picked the route carefully, we wanted to walk around and spot all the Scarecrows around the Village Scarecrow Competition Route. the theme was 'Key Workers' there were some hilarious entries. We finished the weekend with a Roast Beef dinner followed by fresh Apple Crumble made from the apples from somebodies 'Windfall' bucket. When you start craving the big roasts and warming puddings you know we are heading into Autumn. The heating and Aga have been switched back on this weekend, which I am pleased about, I have grown to love cooking in the Aga, it's so easy having it there and on all the time, no preheating or anything, there is also pretty much always at least one twin draped over the front of it !
I have shared a couple of cards from the last couple of years that to me depict Autumn, in colour if nothing else. Sunflowers on the first card remind me of our journeys through France, as we left to travel down to Spain the Sunflowers had their faces full up to the sunshine absorbing the warmth, on the journey home they all look so sad with their faces to the ground, awaiting harvest.
I hope the cards inspire you a little my lovelies,
I would say enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend but apart from Michele and maybe Sonia none of us are really aware of what day it is!
Love and hugs to all of you,
