Spring and Autumn, the seasons of anticipation. Whether its waiting for the first daffodil to bud or the first Christmas song to play, there is a tingling in the air that fills all who allow it with childlike excitement.
Autumn is a time to slow down. Fitting in perfectly after the buzz of the summer, yet before the rush of presents and parties that winter brings. Autumn is like that part of the wedding post speeches where you can just relax and restock before the first dance commences.
After saying goodbye to the summer, it was time to embrace new season upon us. Out came the waterproofs and fleeces, boots dusted off and gloves paired up. Our Sunday afternoon autumn walk and roast dinner regime was to be resurrected. Born out a of a marital compromise, The Essex Husband likes a roast dinner on a Sunday and I like to get out and see the countryside, our ‘Sunday Walk and Roast Dinner’ has become somewhat of a family tradition.
Now this year with another pair of tiny legs strong enough to leave the buggy behind and join us on foot for our autumn walks, life feels complete.
It really is the everyday things that mean the most when you have children isn’t it?
