Haven’t we had the most amazing summer!? I’ve loved spending hours in the garden, splashing in the paddling pool, endless barbecues, limitless ice cream. It was certainly one to remember. But now the leaves are starting to fall, the days are getting shorter and there are mince pies in the supermarkets! Autumn is my favourite season though and I’ve put together a bucket list of all the things I want to do with my family before Christmas arrives. 

  • Go apple picking 
  • Make an apple crumble 
  • Scavenger hunt for conkers, acorns and pinecones 
  • Go pumpkin picking
  • Carve a pumpkin
  • See a fireworks display  
  • Plant autumn flowers
  • Play in the leaves
  • Make leaf art
  • Attend an autumn festival
  • Buy autumn scented candles
  • Take a photo amongst the autumn leaves
  • Watch Hocus Pocus
  • Go to a bonfire
  • Visit a farmer's market
  • Drink hot chocolate
  • Visit a book shop
  • Jump in puddles
  • Bake a pie
  • Make stew and dumplings
  • Light sparklers
  • Wrap up warm and go stargazing 
  • Visit a wildlife reserve
  • Buy an autumn wreath
  • Plant tulip bulbs 

I'm going to be sharing lots of photos and useful hints and tips along the way as my family and I tick as many things off of this list. Join my Facebook group to see how we get on!
