Wow, when the weather forecasters predicted an Indian Summer they weren't wrong . The last few days have been absolutely glorious , so hot in fact that I've had to get the boys school shorts back out and buy ice cream on the way home.
Yesterday I went up the allotment for a while, oops, I just realised that I never updated you on what happened with it did I ? Well the lady I share with is moving to Yorkshire so doesn't want it any longer . She is going to keep it in her name though so that I can have it all and when my name comes to the top of the waiting list she will just transfer ownership across . Anyway, yes, I was up there yesterday for about an hour or so and even though I had taken a drink with me I was just sweating buckets and my face was just beetroot red all day . It was just sooooo hot .
We've also had several walks around the parks . When the boys are at school I've taken Kali out and then in the hour between Gabe finishing school and Milo finishing we've spent another hour there just watching the squirrels running backwards and forwards to the big Oak tree picking up the acorns and then burying them ready for the Winter. Oh I do love to watch them they really are so cute.
You really would never think that it is October 1st tomorrow would you?
There are signs of Autumn everywhere, the leaves are turning and there are berries by the bucket load being devoured by the hungry birds.
Thank you for all the congratulations on getting the job . It's for a company called Lush which sell the most gorgeous fresh handmade products like soaps, bath bombs, shampoos etc . I'll be starting on October 20th and finishing at Christmas so it's only for about 9 weeks but hey I'm really looking forward to it and although it's got nothing to do with the teaching assistant course I've just finished at least I'm out there and employed.
All this good weather is supposed to last for a few more days yet so here's hoping it does and hoping that everyone has a lovely weekend.
