I love it when seasons change, especially from Summer to Autumn as the leaves look beautiful on the ground, cosy layers and chunky knitwear are your best friends, hot chocolates are completely necessary and my favourite country walks are crisp and enchanting. Have I sold all the positives of Autumn to you? I don't like to focus on the negatives which there are many of too, but see it as there's nothing we can do about begrudgingly saying "bye" to sunny summer. Hang on, I live in England - let's change that to semi warm, very occasionally sunny summer.
Being a bit of a country bumpkin, I take the opportunity to source seasonal food to cook with - especially to accompany a delicious Sunday roast! I also enjoy turning my house into something reminiscent of Santas Grotto with fairy lights and candles everywhere: let's be practical, it's light AND warmth. I also love a good forest or field walk with Liam and our bassador Harvey, we're surrounded by beautiful places like Harewood Forest, Savernake Forest and a whole selection of small nature reserves scattered all over our neighbourhood. I do have requirements though: my feet have to be warm and comfy, otherwise I just hate life and everything in it. I'm such a child when it comes to it, but if I'm cold and soggy it just ruins everything for me, I need to be warm and cosy - then I can take on the world. My Hunter wellies are my best friend throughout the year, and Heat Holders have kindly sent me some wellie warmer socks to go with them so my footsies are cosy on our walks!
After we get in from a long stroll, I am always hungry for comfort food and a hot cup of tea - or even better, hot chocolate. I'm very traditional when it comes to Sunday roasts, I think it's the perfect time to get together your family and friends, eat and catch up.
Although, I always experiment with flavours and try to add something different to my roasts. A favourite so far has been lemon chicken!
After a big dinner, we cuddle up on the sofa and watch TV or a film (horror is my pick, nothing can beat a good ghost story!) In the house, I always wear either my slippers, or a pair of big wooly socks to keep my feet warm. Thick socks are almost like slippers - you can just keep them on and not bother about putting slippers on to run to the kitchen to grab some snacks! Doritos, anyone?
These are only some reasons why I love colder weekends - they just feel so cosy and homely. Workforce socks and Heat Holders have a selection of warm and comfy socks to keep your feet warm whatever you're doing - walking, working or just chilling out. They're very durable and as I found out are perfect partners for hiking!
