So long, October

8 Nov

A little later than planned (sort of like the US election results) here is what I got up to in October – a month that went by so fast I didn’t realise it had ended!

October brought the reintroduction of a recommendation from the government to work from home where possible but, despite an alarming number of cases, we have still avoided lockdown. I’ve also stopped going to the gym (I didn’t feel safe and the classes I went to have been cancelled anyway) and I decided to halt my tennis lessons with a heavy heart just to be on the safe side. Several larger get-togethers in my social circle were also cancelled which was disappointing.

Luckily I’ve had plenty of things to do with my two Masters courses now in full swing. I’ve spent most of my time with a head in a book or watching comedy series which is the best and safest place to be right now. It’s hard work but I’m enjoying it so far and learning lots.

In October I was busy making cards for little people. I made these cards for my niece and nephew for Halloween because they were disappointed not be able to go trick or treating. I’m not sure Halloween cards are even a thing but the card producers are missing a trick if they’re not.

I also went for a few autumnal walks as the weather has been mild and dry. I managed to spot a lot of weird mushrooms on my travels. I’ve never seen anything like these before and they do look good in a photograph.

It was also the time of year to visit Jucker Farm for their amazing pumpkin exhibition. The exhibition seemed to be a bit scaled down this year but the diver was my favourite. I love the colours of autumn and I’m hoping the reds, oranges, browns and yellows are with us for a good while longer!
