Yes indeed...Autumn has arrived my garden is strewn with quite the prettiest of leaves,I have a snuffly child lying on my sofa and after two days playing nursey,I am surely rambling! however there is something oddly comforting about being forced to stay indoors on such a blustery day,afternoon tea on a tray,home made cheese scones shared with my poorly cherub and idle chit chat that we would have otherwise not had.Its not all bad.
Last year you may remember,I organised a wintery day basket,probably prompted by lovely Alison at http://brocante-home.blogspot.com/ I ordered a selection of vintage movies from Amazon(amazingly cheap)The ghost and Mrs Muir,Mrs Miniver,Blithe spirit,The major and the minor and a few others,I stashed them in a pretty vintage basket along with a cosy cashmere cardigan,some lovely edible(non perishable)treats and a few seasonal glossy magazines,all ready for afternoons when I neither had the will nor the inclination to go outdoors.I feel another visit to Amazon coming on! this year I fancy an Alfred Hitchcock season! think,Rear window with James Stewart! or North by Northwest with Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint! To catch a thief with Cary Grant and Grace kelly! Vertigo,Psycho!(yikes!!!) the birds!....you see where I am going here? its only a matter of time before I am sporting a Grace Kelly type headscarf,pencil skirt and tottering along to School in kitten heels!
Best stay off school as long as you can Lucy.....Mummy is indeed rambling!
