As we settle into an October that dawned cold and wintry, right on cue, there have been lots of changes in our little corner of the world – and on a rare and much-appreciated Sunday off, I’m so glad to take some time to slow down, match the pace of the season and enjoy a quiet day between the stables and home, making soup, wrapping up and enjoying family time.
It’s so lovely to have time to take stock of everything around us and in the lull I have enjoyed catching up on thoughts and all our recent happenings.
We are entering a new season especially for our little family at the moment, and a very exciting one at that, as we are delighted to be expecting a baby at the beginning of April next year. We are all so looking forward to welcoming our second child and growing our little family. ❤️
Now very glad to be a little less exhausted than I was the first few months, been so enjoying getting out and about in this beautiful time of year for walks and explores with my daughter, gathering leaves and fir cones – and of course with my biggest fluffiest boy, who is doing very well at the moment and enjoying the shift into a more wintry routine.
We have had a few challenges this year trying to stay on top of his arthritis, and I think we may have possibly reached the point of retirement for him, but we will just take it all as it comes as always and, for his part, Charmer is very much enjoying life in the field and all his little routines and is his usual characterful self. ❤️
We have also welcomed another new member of the family, this time small and fluffy, our little Sandy hamster who came home in July and is a truly lovely wee character. He was just 4 months old when we adopted him from a lovely local hamster rescue centre, now around 6 months and he’s settling really well as a lovely family pet. ❤️
Been falling very much by the wayside with blogging the last little while but it’s lovely to write a little catch up and looking forward to reading and writing more autumn adventures very soon.
Have a lovely week all. ❤️🍁 xx
