Because what could possibly be more playful than this time of year? Conkers? Check. Kicking leaves? Check. Halloween costumes? Check. Pumpkin carving? Check.
The best bit about all of this is that many activities are linked and you can spend whole weekends being playful. This weekend we went about bought autumnal goodness at the great greengrocers I am growing to love. Then we carved our pumpkin and then? Harvested the seeds to roast ( you can see them in the picture below) and made a truly scrummy pumpkin soup recipe which will follow as soon as I can console myself that I've eaten it all up
..... Next stop?
Fireworks- my favourite!
