So, I guess we are to assume from the recent nosedive in temperatures, oh and ALL the rain, that Summer has come to an abrupt end.
I don’t feel as cheated as I usually do by an early Autumn, which is probably because I do feel like we had a decent amount of sunshine this year.
As always, it never really is quite enough though.
Give me one week of sun and I want a month… one month and I want two… but 2-months and I think it is here to stay forever.
There I was one day, confidently posting about Zachy probably being able to still wear his summer wardrobe through to October and then the very next day, I found myself in a debate with the Greek God(zilla) over whether it is too early to pop the heating back on in September.
We compromised on 1-hour in the morning, on the condition I wear an extra jumper around the house for the rest of the day. I am sure he will be quick to extend this hour when he realises that the jumpers I have taken to wearing around the house are all his… *rubs palms together mischievously*
I do love Autumn. I get excited when it is time to pull out my jackets, printed scarves and ankle boots again. For one thing, they cover all the parts of my body that wobble the most, therefore also allowing me to continue living in denial that some of the clothes hidden beneath them are not fitting a little more snugly than they used to.
Rain, I can definitely live without, but living in this country means I will never have to.
We got absolutely drenched on our third ever school run and although running in and out of the sea in open toe sandals is lots and lots of fun, walking through dirty rain puddles in them does not hold quite the same appeal.
By the time we reached the school, Zachy’s feet were soaked and he had rain splashes all up his trouser legs.
At this moment, two things were very clear to me:
1. I was not making the best first impression on the other school mums, or their offspring
2. I needed to kit out Zachy’s Autumn school wardrobe
Now, I could get very carried away buying kid’s clothes online but my current employment status means that I have to be more thrifty than ever before.
It can’t hurt to do a little bit of online window shopping every now and then though… can it?
Greek God(zilla) avert your eyes now!

Wonder if I can get this Mini Rodini shirt in my size…?
And this my friends, is exactly how the Greek God(zilla) feared I would spend my days.
