It's been another glorious autumn day today, and when I went out for my short walk I remembered to take my camera with me and take some photographs of the lovely autumn colours. Because we've had such a warm September and early October though, many of the summer flowers are still flowering. We have a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees in the area, so although some are changing colour and starting to lose their leaves, many remain green.
Well, it looks as if our house move might be under way after all. The prospective buyers are still very keen and prepared to wait while we look. So we've booked ourselves three nights at a hotel in Wells next week, following my mother-in-law's funeral. It will do Christopher good to get away and start looking for a new house. I've made about six viewing appointments so far and still have some to make, to look at houses I've found on house sale sites on the internet. We may find some more in estate agents too, so it could be a busy few days. And who knows? We may find the house of our dreams.
And, just to top the day off, I've won a competition. The website for a craft magazine I subscribe to was asking for questions to ask Cath Kidston. My question was chosen and I've won a copy of her new book, Make, which is full of ideas and templates. There was also a plain cotton tote bag included, all ready to decorate. How lucky am I?
