Autumn – My Favourite Time of the Year

I love this time of year so much. I’m not keen on the summer as I will tell most people who see me. The endless stickiness, pollen counts and the late nights that are spent uncomfortable in bed trying to sleep but you can’t because it’s just too hot!

I also find there are more timewasters during the summer months. Probably the same people who drive around with music blaring and no top on. Or those who swagger down the street with a can of lager in their hand also topless wearing sunglasses. Not the sort of people I wish to meet anyway.

I find the cool, crisp mornings during this season so refreshing and it’s so much easier to sleep. There’s nothing nicer than snuggling up underneath a blanket when it’s cold and have the heating on. I think it’s so much easier to warm up when you’re cold than cool down when it’s hot.

I think my dog also prefers this time of year as well with her thick coat. She doesn’t have to pant so much to cool down.

The only thing I don’t like about this time of year is the amount of spiders it brings! I’ve had to shift two enormous house spiders so far. The first one that ran across my bedroom floor while I was in bed and the second one was found in the living room by the cat. Hopefully I won’t see any more of them now. I only shifted two of them last year within a week of each other and funnily enough both were in the same place.
