Last week we said farewell to the Summer at Equinox, the last festival of the year, and what a Summer it has been!
3 festivals under our belt, not bad considering the last ‘proper’ festival I went to was Glastonbury ’98…
I’ve met some beautiful people, which has restored my faith that not everyone is an asshole. Had some great times sat around the camp fire, and even tried smores (seriously good stuff – I cheated and used chocolate digestives!).
We spent the first 3 weeks of the Summer holiday with my partners 2 wonderful little girls, who provided much entertainment throughout (as well as being quite a handful at times, naturally!), and I’m looking forward to enjoying time with them more often.
We got a new fridge. Seriously, the old one was fucked, so the new one is a bloody godsend! It actually keeps things COLD!!!
We’ve grown lots of veggies in the garden, in fact, we spent a huge amount of time out there, tending the squash and aubergines, so we are looking forward to a lovely squash harvest soon. Alas, my pumpkins never amounted to anything, but I have spooky plans for those patty pans!
My cousin FINALLY got married after what seems like a bazillion years, so I got to see family I’ve not seen for ages (as well as camping in a muddy field in September – we’d been blessed with great weather at the festivals, so this was a bit of a shock, to say the least!).
We went over to Northampton to another cousins 30th birthday party, so again, another chance to catch up with family, some of whom I hadn’t seen for going on for 10 years…
We visited my home town, and had a nice few days in Haworth, which will always be a beautiful place, with some great ales 😉
It seems to have flown by, and we are now coming up to my favourite season.
I love Autumn.
I love how nature seems to throw off the past, in order to grow fresh. It seems to decide each year to take a break. We all need to take heed of this I think.
I love Hallowen!
I love an excuse to have a good old dress up, and have already got my outfits for the parties sorted out!
I’m excited to see what life throws at me next, as I never expected even half of what happened this Summer (both good and bad, but you have to take the rough with the smooth, I guess), so who knows what the next few months hold!
Make the most of every opportunity. Enjoy yourself when you can. You never know what’s around the corner.
