It's that orange time of year, isn't it? The shops are pumpkin-ed up to the max and spooky costumes and decorations are beginning to emerge...
For a bat obsessed boy, it's better than Christmas. And setting him loose in HomeSense, with its massive range of brilliant Halloween outfits, interiors ideas and edible treats, was a delight to watch.

After my mini rant a few months back, I confess to really enjoying Instagram at the moment. Plenty of people have bemoaned the changes they've seen as a result of the new algorithms and timeline kicking in, but this has felt freeing to me.
Freedom = creativity, which has led to a few new accounts and hashtags. Hooray!

What to do in the midst of a building site? Make a cake, of course.

So here it is. The autumn equinox – the point in the calendar when day and night are of equal length – falls today. Which means (gulp) the nights will be longer than the days from here until March. My brain melts a bit at this prospect. When I talk about my love of summer, it's not the heat I crave but the light. And I think I know why.

The week before last we holidayed at Center Parcs, Longleat. More to come in an upcoming post but by day we made our way through the forest by bike, finding it the easiest way to get from lodge to pool or playground or lake and back again. Fast forward to this morning and the school form I've just had to fill in about our cycling habits. Do you cycle as a family? Well, yes and no.
