It sure does seem like the 1st November when I took a look outside this morning. Crisp cold air met my face in a cooling, soothing way. The dew on the grass left a fine sheen and the mushrooms popping up to greet the pale sky looked inviting, but I know from previous experience they are not to be eaten, but are poisonous!
Hubby and I found them last year too, looking the perfect fungi, but upon a little research we found that when scraped or marked an ugly yellow appeared - not good, not to be eaten! How do you rid your garden of such unwelcome blight? Anyone got any ideas?
On to today, I got up very excited to have my hair coloured, coiffed and teased today, but have gotten the dates wrong - it's tomorrow! Pony tail it is then.
Have a million and one jobs to do now (slight exaggeration) so not much time for blogging today.
So is it safe to mention the 'c' word yet?? She's says hiding behind the sofa in fear of flying cushions!
It will be everywhere (if not already) now Halloween has been and gone. Yes, about Halloween - I've got treats in the cupboard patiently waiting for eager hands to fill their baskets and bags but no-one visited!! I'm positive they won't stay in there for long, someone's going find them! How was your Halloween? Some of the photos I've spotted on social media are amazing, real true talent out there.
Today's look is rather laid-back, I just pulled on my old faithful default skinnies from H and M, along with my navy turtle neck jersey tunic from the Matalan sale, with a long line cardi over the top, great for the running around today. This was all linked in with a 'go to' scarf to liven up my look. This beauty was for Christmas last year from a selection that Mango were offering in their pre-season sale.
You know the scenario "I'd like that from someone for Christmas, If I go and look over there, perhaps someone can by it for me" hint, hint. lol. Does that happen to anyone else??
How do you like my Autumnal Wreath? I've been seeing these all over the blogs and IG accounts lately, but can't seem to find anything locally, they are truly beautiful, bringing a touch of the woods to your door-step. So I decided to have a go myself!
This afternoon I managed to 'throw together' - (clearly it actually took me ages!) this one. I collected some pieces from a local shop, twinned them together with tape and ribbon, making a couple of bows along the way, and voila my hard work looks half acceptable. What-do-ya-reckon?
OK off to prepare dinner, but don't forget to visit tomorrow, as I can finally let you in on my secret!
Until then, a rather excited fashion blogger for the over 50's signing off...
