I took you for breakfast this morning, you had a red berry smoothie and I had tropical. You said you thought it was cute how you have brown sauce with your bacon and I always have red. It was the first day so far where I’ve actually felt like it’s autumn. We had a mooch about the garden centre, got excited about the fact their Christmas display is nearly up, talked about how we want to take your parents there when they visit, we found conkers on the ground.. “put some in your bag to take home because they keep spiders away” is what you told me, right after I took a photo of them. All the leaves have changed their colour now, we went for a walk, it’s not hoodie weather just yet but i know it won’t be long.
My mama has left for Ibiza. She was a bundle of nerves on the phone to me telling me how she’s lost her make up bag and that she had to go to Superdrug this morning to buy the essentials, I’m certain I get my disorganisation from her. I hope she has the best 8 days and brings us back presents. She always does.
We came home and put our pyjamas straight back on, I painted my nails.. red because I’m in that kind of mood. We stripped the bed, and used our new oasis washing softener that literally smells like a £60 bottle of perfume, I’m gonna shave my legs later because please tell me what better feeling there is than getting into freshly clean sheets with silky smooth legs? You can’t.
You made us a midweek roast for dinner. Beef because it’s my favourite, we hardly ever have beef. I made the glaze for the beef like I always do, honey, balsamic, crushed garlic, sea salt and black pepper. I’m gonna make you love beef one day. You introduced me into cheesy leeks, it’s been 2 and a half years, you’ve cooked me 100 roast dinners and we still have never had them together.. I’m a fan though. It was the best roast dinner I have ever had in all of my life. I know I say that every time you make me a roast or any meal, but seriously, it was the best. Where did I find you? Who made you? How lucky am I that you’re all mine and I’m the one that gets to experience your amazing cooking every single day of my life? Food is 1 million percent the way to my 💗
We spent the majority of the afternoon and evening snuggled on the sofa, I somehow managed to twist your arm enough into watching Mrs Doubtfire with me. You usually hate all the films I love. I think it’s devastating that children born in this day and age don’t have films like the films I watched growing up. Mrs Doubtfire, Matilda, Curly Sue, The Little Princess, The Secret Garden.. thankful to be a 90s baby right now. This evening we watched the brand new series of The Apprentice, I think this is either the 3rd or 4th season we have started to watch together, we love it!
Today has been one of my absolute favourite days, we even lit my bath and body works candle that you got me for my birthday, I have been waiting for the autumn to actually start using it.. bath and body works are without the doubt the best candle brand in all the world. Expensive but so worth it! Do you remember when I had the chocolate pistachio bath and body works candle? And our entire flat smelt like mint chocolate chip 😍✨
Hoping for many more perfect autumn days like today, and I’m so lucky I get to spend them all with you 💓
