Autumn Manifesto 2012 22



Each season I make a manifesto, rather than setting New Years resolutions and there is something about Autumn and September that calls out to me to make a new start.  I think it is something to do with all those years of September.  I still lust after new stationery and new beginnings at this time of year.  I miss my children after they return to school and try to fill my days and keep my mind poccupolied and my body busy, so as not to get cold.

I love making my home cosy during Autum in preparation for the cold of winter

  • Take a walk in the woods with the boys at least once a week
  • Get out my SAD Lamp, the nights drawing in means I need to make sure I get sufficient sun
  • Pop blankets on the ends of each bed
  • Make up a bottle of room spray(water and essential oils) I use this to dampen the air as central heating dries it out
  • Make Mini’s quilt.  I have the fabric, but I still can not bring myself to actually cut the fabric!
  • Buy some new socks
  • Start baking again (I am getting an oven to review), which means this can start again!
  • draw the curtains at dusk to keep the heat in and the cold out.
  • Try and make a Christmas gift a week
  • Find a course I want to go on for me
  • Learn to crochet
  • Go to the Park after school
  • Make the most of the weekends and try and do something family oriented on a Saturday, as Sundays are taken over with football
  • Put hot water bottles in the beds before we get in to them
  • Buy new slipper
  • Plant some spring bulbs and some bulbs in cups for Christmas presents
I would love to know what your plans are for Autumn.  I am going to open up a linky below and would love for you to join in.
