Family // Autumn Leaves

Sundays, since we have returned from Honeymoon, have been blissful; they are filled with lazy breakfasts (well, as lazy as one can be with a Toddler), snuggly clothes and Autumnal adventures. The evenings involve early baths, hearty meals and Downton Abbey, curled up on the sofa with my husband. I couldn’t really wish for much else.
Autumn in Lewes
We have been making the most of our last Autumn in Sussex. I’ve written before about my love for Autumn, and Sussex in Autumn is a beautiful thing; the stormy, wild waves on Brighton Beach, the warm glow of the sun on your face while sitting in a yellow, orange and red scattered park in leafy Lewes, splish-sploshing through puddles on one of our Sunday walks around a beautiful local National Trust property.

It’s going to be hard to say goodbye to Lewes; it’s a gorgeous town full to the brim with lovely people, and has a fantastic, eclectic atmosphere. I think we’re spoiled here with everything it has to offer (other than our disgustingly expensive and horridly damp house).

I’ve written about The Paddock before; it’s one of our favourite places to take Busby for a run about. A few Sundays ago it was a brilliant, sunny, crisp Autumnal Sunday and we headed to The Paddock for an impromptu picnic and explore.

I discovered a leaf-covered slope in The Paddock, and we spent a good hour making piles, jumping in them and throwing them in the air.

It has entered the “favourite Lewes memories” part of my mind now, and I feel so fortunate to have this blog to document our gorgeous family afternoon.

    Nothing beats jumping around in piles of crispy leaves. Busby looks like she’s having a whale of a time#letkidsbekids

    Your Sundays sound perfect! I love a NT property followed by something a it less serene than Downton Abbey – I’m a Homeland girl! Your Autumn pictures capture the season perfectly 🙂

    What a lovely afternoon, it’ll be a good way to remember Lewes rather than the horrible house. I love the leaf throwing photos, Busby looks so happy to be out in nature. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
