 I bloody love Autumn when it's all blue sky and sunshine and crispness and lovely.

When it's grey and drizzly: not so much.


It's mostly grizzly in Yorkshire.

But today was blue sky and sunshine and crispness. And it was lovely.

cheer up

 The weather is shit and the news is depressing.

Put the fire on. Turn off the telly. Delete Facebook. And open a beer.

It's the weekend.

weekend report

Back to Autumn. Back to being super busy. 

But I had the weekend off. And on Sunday the OtherHalf and I went off grid. By accident. We went for a long walk at Hardcastle Crags and discovered there is zero bifta there. We knew we were back in the land of the living when our phones went mental with eleventy billion messages and missed calls. The kids (who don't get out of bed till 3pm without some hardcore nagging from us) had missed our departure and thought we were dead. My sister was giving it till 6pm before phoning the police.

Imagine the widespread joy when we were found safe and well!

I'm back

 I'm back from my double vacation and staycation. Had an ace time on both. We managed to avoid Portuguese quarantine by a week. And there's no quarantine for Nottingham as yet. So *winning*

Back to reality now. The youngest starts college tomorrow. He will have to get out of bed at 7am in order to catch his bus. That's roughly 7 hours earlier than he's used to so it's gonna be a right bloody laugh for me in the morning 😬
