My son Alex was born the night the clocks changed in October 1997. I went into labour in the early hours of the morning on his due date. When we left for the hospital there was a really heavy frost, we couldn't find the car keys and I travelled there in the van, with my midwife following. It turned into a glorious autumn day though and I remember looking out the window from the labour room and commenting on how wonderful it all was - pain killers and an epidural talking. And today it is his 21st birthday and I can't believe how fast time has flown by,
I'm a bit late with my planning this year. I think I spent so much of July and August saying 'let's do that in September or let's get together in September' that I have found myself ridiculously busy! Did you see my previous post about my week of networking and my week of outfits? Anyway, lets get onto the matter in hand. I love to reorganise myself in September and October, I still feel like it is my new year despite not being so governed my school terms now, I love autumn and after the summer holidays and summer months, I enjoy the feeling of 'back to school' goal setting.
I am really enjoying having the opportunity to review books on my blog, some like The Love Detective, are sent to me as part of a blog tour, others I feature on my #beingfiftyandfab monthly post, books I have picked up or have been recommended to me. I am still making more of an effort to read in the evening rather than scroll mindlessly on my phone, it definitely helps the quality of my sleep!
Last week was full on but so much fun and so many new opportunities for me and my blog. I posted some of my adventures on Instagram but as we are charging into autumn now and gradually moving from our summer wardrobe to our autumn wardrobe I thought it might be helpful to share some outfits posts and tell you a bit more about what I am wearing now.
I am not great at transitional dressing so if like me you need a bit of inspiration then you might find these ideas helpful ...
