Since my friends have started having beautiful, squishy babies we don’t get to catch up as often as we used to so today when I met up with my friend Catherine we were able to kill two birds with one stone. As the nights begin to draw in earlier we are determined to at least try and stay healthy this Winter. With this in mind we ventured to Tommy Patton Park in the heart of East Belfast for a run around and a natter.
Hurrah – Autumn is finally here! Bracing winds on sunny days and a rainbow of colours on leaves that dance with the wind signals my favourite time of year. Autumn is definitely the season in which to get things done. As the leaves fall from the trees, it’s time for us to shake off our old selves and prioritise ahead of Winter. We often assume that Spring is the time for new beginnings but I’m pretty sure Autumn is the catalyst – well, it is for me anyway!
It helps that my favourite season got off to a good start with the return of pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks – (I know, I really shouldn’t support them but the lure of that sickly sweet cinnamon spice is just too hard to resist. I’ve had one a week since I discovered they were back on the menu and it’s a trend that’s likely to continue right through until Winter.)
