Autumn is just my favourite, it always has been. Up north we don't get much of a summer anyway, there's just weeks of confusion where you get dressed in the morning ready for a chilly, windy day, and by mid afternoon you feel like you need to strip off into a sundress. I welcome the cooler days with open arms; you can't beat that cosy feeling of layers and faux fur, having an excuse to drink all the calorific hot drinks and the crisp feeling in the air.
I was a bit nervous about dealing with a newborn in the late Autumn months last year and was constantly worrying about keeping her warm enough without being too warm! Now she'll be nine months old when Autumn rolls around, and I can't wait to dig out all the mustard yellow clothes and vintage knitted blankets I've had saved for her. And of course, there's a few little things I've got my eye on too!
