This morning it was raining. Then it was drizzling, and the skies were grey. Not a hint of sunshine anywhere. But, it was such a great day.
After breakfast (delicious pumpkin porridge) I walked up to the allotment, and spent a good hour digging, weeding and chopping down plants. I even picked some sweetcorn that we have grown!
Once I was home, it was time to warm up and dry off a bit.
Then onto one of my favourite autumn tasks- making Christmas cakes! I make one for us, but also for our parents, so I had to cook them in two batches.
While they were baking (they take 2 hours) I got on with some housework, some work, and general pottering about.
I also made some orange and lemon/ passionfruit fairy cakes for work- more on that another day!
I have booked on to pump later, and before that I am planning on walking up to Sweatshop to get some new trainers, but that depends on when I take the final lot of Christmas cakes out of the oven.
What are you favourite drizzly day activities? Baking has to be up there for me, but I also love going out in it, because then coming home to a warm cup of tea just seems even better.
