The pyracantha berries are looking so vivid right now with their orange glow. They look like baby tomatoes in the photo above! I love the change to autumn from summer.
The mornings are misty and the evenings are cooler now but it has still remained warm in the day here in the South East of England. I was on a food safety course yesterday and we had to have fans on in the building as we were almost melting with the extreme heat! I had to throw away my packed lunch as there wasn't a fridge to store it in and I wasn't going to risk eating it after the talk about how food poisoning is contracted! Luckily my colleague gave me her banana to sustain me until home time.
For the past 6 weeks I have drastically changed my eating habits and incidentally lost quite a lot of weight. I am eating good, nutritious food and eating 3 times a day with no snacking. As part of my on-going healthier me journey, I am going to attend a fitness class next week for the first time in years! I will let you know how I progress!
Thank you for the well wishes about my son going to University. He seems to have settled in well and met lots of people. As long as he is happy then I am content too!
Well, October is almost peeking over my shoulder now. There is much to be done in the garden before the onset on winter - planting bulbs, tidying up, mowing the lawn........then I should be able to settle down to some hobbies inside and experimenting with new recipes, hand sewing, painting, drawing and plenty of reading too!
