  1. I've got Friday off and I'm secretly hoping it's tipping it down so I can snuggle up in bed with the new brick thick Fiona Walker novel and read all day. I only do this about once a year since it feels supremely decadent even to my lazy-ass self. Hope you get your Autumn plans ticked off x

    1. Raining or not, I think you should snuggle up with the book anyway, it's a day off after all :)

  2. Get cosy and read is definitely on my list, too. And I wouldn't mind one of the Cadbury or Mr. Kipling delights you mention. Going for long autumnal walks as long as the weather's dry. Trying a couple of new baking recipes. Get on with my mending pile now that the nights are drawing in. Get my warm woollies and boots ready. Wishing you lots of fun ticking off your list, Hazel! xxx

    1. The Mr Kipling treats are one of my all time favourites. I think I requested them for every birthday party I've ever had, and now I can't resist the themed ones.
      A few woodland walks would be super, and my mending pile definitely needs my attention!

  3. A lovely list!
    Over the last week I've filled one of our fireside baskets with pine cones foraged from the garden, filled up the bird feeders with suet blocks and raked up the leaves - my Autumn tasks.
    This week I might try and make some earrings from some bits and pieces I've got lying around and tackle a new old dressmaking pattern or I might not. These dark nights sap my enthusiasm for being creative. xxx

    1. I really should get outside with a rake too, and sort out the greenhouse.
      I don't feel especially creative at this time of year either, dark nights just make me want to watch TV or read.

  4. Needle felting acorns sounds like fun! My only thing to do is a classic - kicking piles of leaves. Honestly, it never gets old.

    1. The acorns are quick and easy and look really effective. Ah yes, leaf kicking, it's obligatory really!

  5. This is the time I make wreath bases for Christmas with foraged vines from the woods, I aim to make orange pomanders this year too and also check chazzas for accessories that say Autumn.
