Walkin’ In An Autumn Wonderland

autumn woodland walk

Oh heeeey Monday!

Did ya have a lovely weekend? Our girls night on Friday was SO much fun, although I left my camera at work like a nincompoop so I didn’t get any snaps of the cocktail bar I promised to show ya ? You may have seen a few jazzy boomerangs on my Insta-stories. If not, it is called The Alchemist and the cocktails are bloomin’ impressive, ya gotta check it out.

Alas, I digress. After many cocktails, karaoke, dancing and late night catch ups, I was feeling pretty worse for wear on Saturday morning.

My brother picked me up, handed me a bottle of water and we zoomed down to Guildford to visit my Granny for the afternoon. It was so lovely to sip endless cups of tea (and glasses of wine), catch up, flick through old recipe books, stumble across family photos and eat pudding. You can always guarantee at least three different when you visit this lass. She is the best.

Just as daylight began to fade, we hopped back in the car and headed back to London, via Sheepleas. A gem we used to visit as nippers on frosty Christmas afternoons for a post dinner stroll. But at this time of year, it glows in the most beautiful shades of autumn.

It was especially cosy being wrapped up in my new Next coat, which my bro calls the Sherlock Holmes coat. What do ya think, I think I quite like channeling the detective vibes?

A carpet of burnt orange leaves stretched out before us, trees adorned in golden, crimson and burnt orange leaves. UH, ain’t it just the dream?

We strolled, snapping away, chatting and marveled at flurries of leaves blowing off the trees and settling like snow around us. It was so nice to just completely take in the beauty, soak up the crisp air touched with bonfire, and the most beautiful sunset casting the soft, warm light across the fields.

It made me think of this quote that goes something along the lines of “Autumn is as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” It defo feels that way.

Each year I feel sentimental about autumn. It feels special, a gentle reminder to stop and appreciate the beauty of our world – ain’t nature an amazing thing?

As the sun finally dipped below the horizon, we made our way back to the car… Trying not to get lost along the way!

The rest of the weekend was pretty much taken up by binge watching Stranger Things, it is just so damn good and addictive! Have you been watching?
