Welcome to the first proper newsletter since Auden was born! And also welcome to October, month of true Autumn, and my birthday month. Hips, haws and sloes are bountiful, horse chestnut cases litter the ground, and of course their shiny inhabitants; although not for long before small hands gather them up greedily. The trees are turning resplendent shades of red, orange and brown, and the ground is carpeted in gold. We shake out our woollens, light the candles and prepare for the many celebrations that this season holds.
Yes, Autumn. We like you.

So, without further ado, here are 10 of my most favourite things to make, do, and celebrate this month.
Hurray for October!Read More
