The Webs









I find it hard to pass by the delicate wonder of a dew-bedecked spider’s web. These are our discoveries from yesterday’s walk.

Finding Autumn


Autumn days when the grass is jeweled and the silk inside the chestnut shell….


Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled….


All these things I love so well….


Did anyone else sing that at school? I went to a very Christian primary school and sang daily from the Come and Praise book. I’m pretty sure that Autumn Days was one of our favourites to sing – the words still seep into my consciousness all these years later as the seasons turn and Autumn greets us.

This has to be one of my favourite seasons, I feel giddy in the Spring and cosy in Winter but Autumn just fills me with the greatest joy every time.

The smells envelop you – wood smoke, damp leaves, frosty air. And there is so much colour everywhere. From the produce at the market to the wonderful display of the turning and falling leaves. Yes, this is the season that fills me up.

I have been working on a special Pinterest board of Autumn and Winter Family Fun inspiration to celebrate UNIQLO’s new children’s range. The board is now live and I will be adding a few more ideas over the next week.

Given that we are about to have one of the coldest winters in a century (so I hear) it is definitely worth ordering thermals and snug outerwear now so you can keep enjoying the great outdoors when the big chill hits us.

Autumn 5

I have been grabbing my camera or phone at every opportunity to capture the season when I’ve been out and about. I do think being out of doors is incredibly important for children especially at this time of year when the weather could chase us indoors.

Need convincing? Take a look at the trailer for Project Wild Thing and then get outside!

I was paid for my work on the UNIQLO Pinterest board. For more information please read my disclosure for readers page. Kat xoxo

My Favourite and My Best

Delicious Autumn George Eliot Quote

“Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive Autumns.” – George Eliot

Welcome Autumn! Wishing you all a happy Equinox, Kat xoxo


Doesn’t the hour change feel like being suddenly engulfed? The darkness rushes in and suddenly half term is upon us and the celebrations begin.

So now the gentle whirlwind of the school holidays is over and tomorrow we return to the rhythms of school, dancing and fleeting weekends.
