My favourite season is in full swing, and it was another very busy month with catching up after being on honeymoon. I’m still quite behind with posts for this blog, with at least a couple more honeymoon posts in the pipeline. I just haven’t had the time, as I’ve been so swamped with my copywriting work! However, I still haven’t missed a day on my 365 Days of Happy Instagram challenge, and here are the results for last month.
A recovery day after the long-haul flight of the previous day. Happy to be home and starting married life!
My favourite season is upon us!
I went back to our wedding venue to give them a big box of chocolates, and loved seeing the evening light through the trees.
A new addition to our fleet! It’s the Robin you saw before.
We went to Stratford Mop Fair.
Short hair again, thankfully!
Autumnal scenes while running errands in Redditch.
Up early for breakfast at Oxford Airport.
To the farm to collect eggs.
A moment of tranquility catching up with my favourite YouTube vloggers before the rigours of the day began.
Scouting out places to live by air.
There’s something about the sight of a hot air balloon that always fills me with cheer.
My rose is flowering for the second time this year, looking very lovely.
Stunning autumn colours at Westonbirt Arboretum with my dad.
Cuddles with this gorgeous Golden Retriever pup, among many others!
We hosted a fireworks and soup evening at the airfield for our gliding club members.
Autumn colours – in progress.
Half red, half green – this tree is looking gorgeous halfway through its seasonal transformation.
Enjoying what is known as a “festive bakewell”. It’s basically a cherry bakewell but without the cherry, which is great, as I never really liked the cherry anyway!
Working from bed thanks to a wretched cold, but I booked a trip to Iceland and a friend managed to get us tickets to the Harry Potter plays, so I stayed positive!
We met the great force of life that is Brian Blessed and he signed our book after an entertaining talk at the Stratford Literary Festival.
We met up with friends for a lovely meal, wine and pumpkin carving. My friends and I have been doing this at Halloween for at least five years. Here are this year’s results! Mine’s the rubbish one with the collapsed nose, and Lee’s is the one on the far left (a great effort for his first time pumpkin carving!).
I drove an Aston Martin and a Ferrari at 120mph at Silverstone racing circuit.
A foggy start brightened into a beautiful blue sky day, and very warm for November.
I launched my new professional freelance copywriting website!
After a hard day’s work, some much-needed relaxation with wine, the Emma Bridgewater Christmas catalogue and some cheese cubes.
A charming discovery of a barn full of old farm carts at the airfield. They were all around 100 years old.
A pastoral scene in the Cotswolds.
Wine by the fire at the Castle at Edgehill, where we went for a lovely dinner with some friends.
Unwinding with the beautiful Simple Things magazine after a working Saturday.
