Summer or Autumn (Fall) You Decide

From where I type I can hear the distant hum of a washing machine drum turning with the sound of the last remnants of holiday laundry being spun after another Great British adventure.

Yes, The Wright’s are back from our travels, and if my eyes do not deceive me, I can see September on the kitchen calendar.

Where did August go?

They do say time flies when you are having fun – and fun we had.

Lifetime memories made.

The dip in the temperature (seemingly overnight between 31st August and 1st September) was remarkable – or maybe slightly imagined? Without a doubt the days seem shorter, the nights longer, and there is a dampness to the air.

Although Autumn officially does not commence until 22nd September, for me it begins the week British children return to school – that’d be this week then.

I love the changing of the seasons – each brings with it it’s own pleasures. Rather than dread the darker nights, I can already feel the cosyness of the colder seasons.

I’m declaring Simply Being Mum’s Autumn months as September, October and November. Do you agree?

September has brought Autumn (Fall) to our house. It also brings with it Zero Waste Week 2017.

My blogging may have been sporadic over the Summer but it all kicks back in with the launch of Zero Waste Week (of which I am once again an ambassador).

It’s a great opportunity to remind myself (and others) how much the reduction of waste benefits us all and this wonderful planet in which we inhabit.

Welcome Autumn, here’s to yet another successful Zero Waste Week, and I’m looking forward to spending the cosy Autumn months with you all.

    Jo, this is my very favorite season, not least because we have a ton of family holidays in September and October, including my little granddaughter’s first birthday next week 🙂 The cooling temperatures, pumpkin-spice everything (I know, it’s an American thing. We are obsessed with pumpkin spice!), and the feeling of getting ready to settle into home for the autumn and winter. I look forward to seeing you posting regularly again.
