3 Photos I Loved In September & October

 Somehow we are in November already and whilst I can't deny I am loving the fact that Christmas is on the way, with the news we've been having over the last month or so, I'm not feeling that positive that 2021 will be much better than 2020 and I just kind of want everything to slow down a little again! There was never going to be a magic switch at the end of the year but the fact we seem to be going backwards as we head towards Christmas isn't doing a great deal for my anxiety. Autumn and Winter are always my favourite times of the year and I wait for them all year round but this year it's all just felt flat. Does that make sense? I think it's just the general underlying anxiety that never seems to go away because of what's going on. What should be the best time of year where we're all seeing family, going to Christmas markets, generally celebrating after the rough start to the year, isn't going to be and I'm struggling with that. I don't want to waste this time of year but it's so hard to feel positive at the moment. Like before though, we'll get on with it and one day this will be over. Whilst I can't say my mental health was at its best towards the end of September (or last month really), it wasn't all bad! I didn't end up taking loads of photos though so I thought I'd combine September and October so here are 3 of my favourite photos from the last few months instead.

Autumn Has Arrived

As soon as September arrived, I went into full on Autumnal mode. I know it technically wasn't Autumn until the 22nd but for me the 1st of September always signals the start of things to come and with how 2020 has been, why not celebrate a little early? I dread to think how early I'll get the Christmas tree out this year... Our flat isn't full of space so unfortunately I can't go as mad as I'd like with the Autumn decor but I did add in a few extra pieces compared to last year. I've got a beautiful glass pumpkin from Homesense which has pride of place on the coffee table and I also bought these lovely handmade knitted pumpkins from Rach & Nic on Etsy recently. There's loads of colours available in a variety of sizes for a really reasonable price so I know I'll be ordering more next year (hopefully when we've got a house to fill). I've also brought out allllll the autumnal candles and the fairy lights are back on. Just so ready for all the cosy nights in. Bear is thrilled as I'm sure you can tell.Bear laid on sofa with pumpkins next to himRadcliffe Camera, Oxford

Last month I shared a roundup of our few nights in Oxford and I've also shared quite a lot of photos of the trip over on Instagram so it feels like I've not shut up about it but I just really enjoyed myself. It's quickly become a city that I can see us going back to many times in the future and I really am missing it now we're home. Whilst it was SO hot when we we're there, there's no denying because the sun was shining, all of the sights looked even more beautiful than I could have imagined. It's such a picturesque city and every corner you turn you just find something else to be in awe of.

Selfies with Bear

Okay Bear definitely isn't looking at the camera but I LOVE this photo. I rarely take selfies as I always pick myself apart but even when I do, there's not many I choose to share. I got some really cute photos of Bear though just before we headed out one day last month and I thought I'd get in on the action and for some reason this is my fave out of them all. He's just the cutest and I love him so of Bear and IAnd that wraps up this post! The 3 photos I've loved the most over the last few months. How have you found the last few weeks? Are you looking forward to Christmas yet?

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
