Autumn is my favourite time of year. I love seeing the change of season, the pretty colours of the falling leaves. Searching for acorns and conkers, wrapping up in warm jumpers and having leaf fights with the girls. The past few weekends have been filled with parties, birthdays, adventures away – of course it’s been lovely but I have been craving a little bit of a family day with with no plans. Pottering around, going on an autumn walk, warming up with some hot chocolate.
So last weekend we had a free day, after a slow morning we decided to go to our favourite place Ness Gardens for a little fresh air. Typically as soon as we left the house the rain started, but armed with umbrellas and our wellies off we went.
Even in the rain is was beautiful. We searched for conkers, we collected some pretty leaves, we splashed in puddles and we chatted. It was a lovely afternoon and so lovely to spend some time together as a family.
