Autumn is well and truly here! As I sit down to write this, I’ve just made a big ol’ pot of chilli and am sat on the sofa underneath a blanket drinking tea. I love Autumn. It’s definitely my favourite season; the smells, the sounds, the clothes! This year I might even try a spiced pumpkin latte from a well-known coffee retailer that rhymes with ar-clucks… Cosy!
Busby is also enjoying Autumn; we spent the last part of our Honeymoon staying at Nick’s parents house, and she showed great delight in collecting all of the apples from their apple tree… and trying to feed them to me!
She loved helping Grandad fill up his bird feeder (a fantastic toddler task if ever there was one), and sat still for a record breaking 15 minutes filling up the wire house – concentrating hard on the task in hand.
Once we arrived back in Sussex at the weekend we headed out to our local National Trust property, Sheffield Park, for a wander around. Busby couldn’t believe her eyes at all of the muddy puddles! She had such a fantastic time jumping away, and loved running in between the puddles until (can you see where this is going?) she face-planted in a huge puddle and was soaked through – head to toe! We had to carry out a full change on the lake bank… and we found out what brunette Busby would look like!
On the subject of Autumn, I’m very happy to announce that I’ve been asked to be a Super Muddy Mum for a company we love a lot: Muddy Puddles!
Keep your eyes peeled for reviews and competitions in the future on Make, Do and Push! You can read our recent Muddy Puddles review here.
