Can you believe it is already October? That summer is now definitely over and Christmas is the next big thing ahead. I am one of those people who love autumn. I love the yellowing leaves, the chilly mornings, the fresh air, that extra cup of tea. Evening walks in the dusk through puddles in wellies. I always want to live in a little cottage on the country side when this season comes, and right now as I am writing this post I am looking at the possibility of a weekend to the Lake District. It is a bit far away though. Can anyone recommend any other beautiful area closer to Ascot or Reading?
