Autumn Manifesto

So back at the beginning of the Summer holidays I wrote a Summer Manifesto of all the places and things I’d like to Go, Visit, See, Try, Do, Make, Eat and Work during the holidays. We ticked off quite a bit (though not everything) but I promised not to beat myself up about it! I loved the idea and thought id do the same for Autumn. 

Autumn has become a new favourite season of mine over the years and looking at the dates for 2016s official Autumn it takes us almost up to Christmas.


  1. To a pumpkin patch
  2. Trick or Treating
  3. To a Firework display
  4. To the park, soft play, garden centre-do things to keep LB entertained and feeling special
  5. To the theatre-there are some shows at the local theatre that I would love to see if I can tear myself away from the little one for a few hours


  1. The woods for autumnal walks kicking the leaves up in our wellies
