Although this month has been quieter than previous months, October is still my favourite month of the year for all sorts of reasons.
I’m a big winter fan, so I think October is the month where we finally see the weather change and the nights draw in. And that’s the perfect excuse to sip hot chocolate under a nice cosy blanket with the fire on. One of my regulars (thanks Romeo) bought me some hot chocolate over the summer and it was nice to try that, but I think you can’t beat a cup of chocolatey warmth on cold, dark nights. However, having said all that, I don’t think it’s been that cold of yet. Just mild and wet.
I like Halloween which is also in October. I don’t like it for trick or treating or anything like that or even dressing up, but I love the ghost stories that are synonymous with the event. I went on a ghost hunt at the start of the month which was amazing and I think I might have seen my first ghost, too! If it was paranormal then it wasn’t anything like I expected it to be. It wasn’t scary or frightening, it just looked like a normal person. A solid black silhouette that walked down the main room of the building!
I have another ghost event at the end of the month, so I’m looking forward to that and then I have a couple of ghostly things to look forward to next month.
I hope you’re all having a nice month, too.
