Simple Saturday

Well, isnt the weather glorious here in the UK at the moment?  Yes, I know its all happening as the kids return to school, but even so it is grand having super weather on a weekend!

So DH and I decided to make the very most of it yesterday by having a Simple Saturday.

First off we nipped into the city to do some quick shopping.  After dropping off the bags we popped on our walking shoes and headed off to our local outwoods - a ten minute drive and we are into some of the most beautiful countryside.  Off we headed down this enchanting pathway

I loved looking up through the leaf canopy at the blue Indian Summer sky

This little fellow came up to greet us, reminding us that the winter festival beginning with the letter C (cant bring myself to mention the word itself yet, just a bit too early!!) is beginiing to loom on the horizon

From a clearing in the forest we could see the local farmer hard at work gathering in the harvest

More lovely views from the clearing

After all this walking, we headed home for a BBQ.  DH was kind enough to sort that out while I sat on the swing seat leafing through this new magazine

Its a lovely new mag, from the publishers of Mollie Makes.  I had a super leisurely read, made all the better knowing that I wasnt cooking the tea!!

We sat out until late, making a bonfire with some offcuts of wood we had, watching the night sky, drinking apple and cinnamon tea - all in all a lovely, relaxing, simple Saturday.

Hoping to keep today simple too!

  5. What a lovely way to spend the day. Mum and I went to Shaftesbury and revelled in the Dorset countryside all laid out before us in the golden sunshine, love this time of year when the weather cooperates!

  6. What a wonderful way to spend your Saturday all the photos. Nice to be able to share it with you....
    Lovely surprise to see a Red Robin, they are my favourite Winter birds here......
    I'm a big fan of Autumn too, it's so nice to have a change in the air after our hot Summers.
    Have a great week,
