Lifestyle | Carving Pumpkins

Believe it or not, but in my 21 years of living I have never carved a pumpkin! I know, I haven't lived. We decided that enough was enough and dashed off to Tesco to get pumpkins.

Armed with the correct tools and chocolate we made a start. First we chopped off his top..

Then we scooped out the innards..

It's rather messy work! We then gave him his face.

Finally we took him outside and lit his tea light, he's now sat happily with his pumpkin friends.

Have you had a go at carving pumpkins this year?

A Chilly Autumn Walk

I love a good long walk after a hearty Sunday lunch. You can't beat the fresh air lapping around your cheeks and seeing the golden leaves falling from the trees. I have to admit this time of year is my favourite (but that's for another blog post!)

Today we grabbed Tilly's lead and set of for a long autumnal walk over the fields.

Just lately I've been extremely busy at work, what with the festive season coming at a rapid rate everything has stepped up a notch, this means that quality 'me' time has been somewhat lacking. It was nice just to get out in the open and gather my thoughts. To be fair it was lovely to just relax and not worry about anything.

To me Sundays are all about re-grouping yourself, relaxing and preparing to start the next week. What better way to do this than with a walk.

Not only does it make me happy..

It certainly makes her happy.

Ahhh, there is nothing quite like a good long walk, and a happy little dog.

How do you like to spend your Sunday's?
