6 Weeks of Autumn

I’ve been a busy little lady recently.

I felt like I had to take a mini break away from writing due to hurting my foot and generally feeling quite sorry for myself. But, I’ve been taking lots of photos and here’s a little rundown of exactly what I’ve been up to.

I left the house at 8am to visit my doctors and left the appointment feeling just as frustrated. On the plus side, the walk was beautiful!

2018-09-28 10:09:57.7652018-09-28 10:07:06.027

Just a couple days later I returned to the doctors and my issue was resolved thanks to a lovely course of antibiotics and a very helpful nurse.

I visited my mum and walked our/her two old timers Coco and Herbie.

I sat on a bench opposite my old work and watched the ongoing building works. Once this complex is complete it’ll be an extension of our shopping center Drake Circus and hold a cinema, lots of parking and at least 14 new restaurants.

I visited Nandos with a close friend (her choice not mine but I enjoyed it.) I still don’t understand the obsession with the chain at all but I know what I like and can handle spice wise so I was still able to enjoy a nice lunch. For anyone wondering, I ordered the sunset burger with piri fries.

2018-10-10 14:37:48.162

I bought two books that I’ve wanted to read for a long time but still somehow haven’t managed to start. I can’t help but want to know as much as I possibly can about this subject.

I admired my beautiful bedroom window and thought about buying more houseplants and candles.

2018-10-16 17:55:52.529

I baked unattractive chocolate and coffee cupcakes but my work friends loved them.

2018-10-11 13:17:49.4432018-10-11 13:40:12.6242018-10-14 14:00:42.5232018-10-14 14:14:09.063

I drank good coffee and walked around Royal William Yard with my family.

2018-10-20 11:26:00.5372018-10-21 13:06:05.518

Me and my partner stopped for petrol before travelling to a farm shop and returned with duck pie!

2018-10-03 17:38:03.968-12018-10-03 17:39:57.889

I walked down a street I used to live on purposely to admire these incredible red Autumn leaves.

2018-09-27 19:42:49.394

I caught up with a friend and went for an evening walk with her dog to the Barbican.

2018-10-21 16:49:15.895

I made smoked basa fish cakes from scratch with curried mayo and spring greens.

2018-10-23 20:23:29.277

I whipped up an easy peasy pasta recipe using just garlic, olive oil, chilli and prawns.

2018-10-11 14:08:27.531

I bought a pair of yellow socks from H&M and sat in bed admiring them for hours. These are my favourite thing now.

2018-09-20 11:21:24.270

I went food shopping and wore my prescription glasses for the first time in forever.

2018-10-24 14:32:12.248

I ate more halloumi whilst binge watching Shameless on Netflix.

2018-10-24 19:03:23.493

In the same day I made steak and mushroom stroganoff.

2018-10-26 11:57:26.222

I waited in the cold for my mum who is never usually late before grabbing lunch at Starbucks.

2018-09-28 10:02:11.247

I spent lots of time trying to enjoy my everyday. Going for walks, being in my own company and looking after myself during my favourite season.

What have you been up to this October?

  1. Oh the good old autumn! This is so my kind of post, the type where you just go with the flow without a care. Lovely post, lovely pictures as well.

    1. Thanks so much. I love writing but my creative juices haven’t been flowing lately and a post more picture orientated seemed appropriate. Although, I always try to write freely without such a tight structure.

  2. I love how you captured so many little moments with your camera. It’s such a great way to reflect on the past couple of weeks. Coco and Herbie are super cute!

    1. Thank you so much. I love photographing houses and trees in the sunshine. Its the little moments that we take for granted that I love, that I always stop to watch and take in x

  3. I really love this post Kate, Autumn is such a cosy time of year. Awww, Coco and Herbie are the cutest! Wow, I’m loving all the tasty looking food in this post too, especially those chocolate and coffee cupcakes. I haven’t seen Shameless in ages, I used to love that program. Now I have Netflix again I’m going to binge watch some episodes I think! Those yellow polka dot socks are so awesome. Your photos are lovely, the park looks so peaceful and relaxing. Thank you for sharing! ❤ xx

    1. Thanks so much! I wanted to post something a little differently and Autumn is my favourite season. I love to just sit back, go for a walk and just take it all in. Coco and Herbie are the cutest little grumpy things but I have so much love for them. Last year we lost two dogs but these two have joined together to make the perfect team. I’ve been binge watching Shameless for at least a month now but I’m finally on season 6 out of 7 and, I’ve also been watching lots of Gilmore Girls again I must admit in between going to work and cooking lots. I’m so disappointed with the appearance of my coffee cupcakes so I might have to give them another go soon.

    1. Thank you so much. I’m really glad you enjoyed scrolling through. I wanted to share something a little different and show my followers my average days and what I get up to etc x
