And so here we are again, that time of year where we get an extra hour in bed. However as I have a young son who is Type 1 Diabetic, it matters not to me whether I go bed earlier or later. I am up with my husband checking my sons blood sugar levels anyway! This is just a reminder really that for those of you who have a meter or pump, you need to roll your equipment back an hour as well as your clocks and watches. This may also mean altering the ratios.
What do we have to look forward to now the nights are rolling in quicker and darkness arrives earlier each day? You could always purchase a fire pit and wrap up warm as you toast marshmallows around the fire. You can also burn important but not needed documents to save on shredding tasks. There are lots of comfy coffee shops selling seasonal coffee. I have noticed also that places are starting to offer dairy alternatives/vegan/gluten free food and drink.
There is nothing quite like the smell of fresh baked bread, with homemade soup. For those of you who like foraging you can bring home a real treat if you know where to look. For those who have a diabetic in the family, please don’t buy diabetic chocolate. It causes tummy ache. The best thing you can do is to buy dark chocolate and carb count for that (it’s not that much)
Try spending some time together as a family this autumn. I have had a great time building with my son and husband, just cutting up cardboard boxes and making ‘dens’ out of them for Nerf wars. Reading books by candlelight adds a magical feel to this time of year. Buy some wellies for the whole family and head on over to the park. Its just this side of cool outside, not freezing so still time to enjoy the outdoors before the winter steps in.
Whatever you do this autumn do enjoy yourself, life can be so stressful at the moment what with Brexit coming up and whatnot. Now is the time before Christmas to take some time out and enjoy the autumn together.
