Sandbanks in Autumn

It is days like this that I am so thankful to call this beautiful place home. It brings a little tear to my eye to think that I will be bringing up Sebastian in a place that I love so much and have such fond memories of from when I was little. I remember my parents would wake us up at 6am on a sunny summers day, pack the beach gear up in the car and drive us on the 2 hour drive from Bath where I lived as a child. We would arrive in exactly the same place I had parked on this sunny autumnal day, we walk down the exact steps that I would excitedly run down to catch my first glimpse of the sea and as soon as I did, I have the same reaction as I do to this day.

It has always hds the same effect on me, I just love this place.

Last Friday, I packed the BabyBjorn carrier into the car and drove to Sandbanks to meet my mum and her crazy labradors for an afternoon beach walk. The sun was setting and there was a crisp coolness to the air. But it was magical none the less.

I wanted to share this day on my blog because I just want to remember it forever. Being with the people I love the most, in the place that holds my heart, it was the perfect Autumnal stroll, which of course ended in a giant hot chocolate in Jazzy’s cafe!. It wouldn’t be a Sandbanks walk without one of those hot chocolates!

The Pumpkin Patch

Autumn is well and truly here and thank goodness. I’m not sure about you but I was getting pretty sick of that warm weather in October. I mean, I can barely dress myself in that weather let alone a 12 week old baby!

Yesterday we went to our local Pumpkin Patch to choose a pumpkin for Sebastian. It is my first time living in a house instead of a flat in 6 years, so I’m going to decorate our pumpkin this week and hope for some trick or treaters this Friday!

If you fancy picking your own pumpkin this year, Sopley Fruit Farm is the place to go!

autumn in bournemouth

I just had to share these beautiful pictures of Bournemouth Gardens with you.

Today is unseasonably warm. The air is clear and the sun is shining. There are very few places I would rather be in the world today than Bournemouth. Yesterday also saw the eagerly awaited arrival of the Christmas German Markets, shops and bar in the square.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas….
