We had another rain spattered weekend. Autumn is definitely here – the woodburner is on and we are back to the rhythms of welly boots, hats and woodchopping. Although I do miss the warmer weather I think there is something incredibly comforting in the season and the different patter that the darer evenings and mornings bring, a calming and settling effect, pj mornings with hot coco, snuggly dressing gowns and frosty grass (yup we’ve had frost already!)

Saturday was fine and we walked into town for a mama and daughter brunch and some leaf stamping. Hubby had been away Friday and Saturday so Sunday was a quiet day. We had a lovely morning tea with friends and watched the girls run riot and burn off steam. The afternoon was wet so much indoor time, dancing, cooking and staving off toddler boredoms.

Moose coped really well with daddy away, but was very very pleased to see him when he got in – a late night cuddle meant a good nights sleep, and no 5am ‘mama I need a snuggle’.

I cooked up a kohlrabi and kale chicken filling and made a pie (no pics of the pie – I totally forgot!), made cornflake crunchies planned some of next weeks meals.

In a fit of creativity I also broke up and melted down Mooses broken crayons and made ‘homemade’ multi coloured crayons, for a first time I’m rather pleased, now I need to work out how to get hold of crayon odds and ends!

We spend far to much time here!! It such a great cosy little place, all the staff know us, make Moose little mini hot chocs with huge fluffy toppings and no one complains when we sit and natter for ages as our drinks go cold and people mill around us, ordering, drinking and eating, leaving, almost as if we are in slow motion in the centre of it.
