As summer reluctantly makes way for Autumn I thought I’d take a cue from the blue skies of London and collate some of my favourite things to look upon as the mornings turn colder and the evenings get darker. Here are 12 pieces of positivity that, hopefully, will raise a smile and provide some light relief. For optimum results pair with tea and cake.
I now challenge you, yes you reading this, to in turn compile your 12 positive pieces. Follow the same format as me or mix it up however you see fit. Just be sure to comment and let me know where I can see the finished list.
So, without further ado, press play, read away and allow fluffy seals to help cure any dismay.
