There would have been a time that September would have filled me with dread, nervous butterflies dancing around my tummy as I was about to embark on a new school year, waking up to a darker morning and feeling that chill as I miserably waited at the bus stop at stupid a-clock.
Now for me September is as welcome as a warm cup of tea with a bouncy homemade sponge on a lazy Sunday afternoon. There is something so nice about a change of season, like a chance to start a fresh again, change your mindset onto something new.
My September rituals will start to include, packing away the floaty fabrics and summer wardrobe in favour of cosy knits, scarfs and ankle boots. Packing away the BBQ items and paddling pool instead dusting off the slow cooker in prep for some warming stews post crisp country walk.
I love that fashion week sets our inspo for the next season, I love the BBC/ITV autumn ads that pop up and tempt us of whats to come on our screens during these darker nights…infact telly altogether Bake off, Strictly, X-factor…cue hermit crab syndrome.
I love that a berry lip will soon be making a regular appearance and the shops start getting a little more twinkly with their displays…oh there is so much to get excited about, I admit I have experienced a few Christmas pangs (Sorry not sorry)
So September don’t let me down, I’m so happy to see you!
