^^I had to pop this picture up because it is so beautiful. Joe took it one evening this week outside our house and I love it. You can't beat a clear autumn evening^^

Oh guys, October is here, and I couldn't be more pleased! I love October so much, what with the promise of bright days with chilly breezes and pumpkins appearing in the supermarkets (specifically those really cute mini ones!) - I just cannot get enough of this month!

The down sides to this time of year are the dreaded spiders...everywhere. Our garden is filled with garden spiders right now, highlighted even more on a slightly colder morning, when the dew catches on each little home and slightly freaks me out. But, I am a believer in leaving them alone, and would never be found jumping on one or squishing one. That said though, we occasionally have to  use a stick to take down a web or two, carefully relocating the owner into a tree as Gizmo will not walk through certain areas when there are webs...she is scared too!

Back on topic then and to the things I am grateful for this week...

1. Being gifted an album on iTunes. I saw L on Sunday and we were chatting about Taylor Swifts album, like you do, when she mentioned Ryan Adams had covered it. L is into a bit of Ryan (oo-er!) but I don't really know much about his music (I am more old school Bryan Adams myself!). Anyway, L was saying how beautiful the cover album was and when I got home I had received and email to say it had been gifted to me. I have to say that I really love it. It is so much more chilled out, perfect for having on in the back ground when I am working. Thank you L, so sweet of you xx

2. Coming home to a cuppa and a steak for dinner. Wednesday evening I came home feeling poorly...again (I need a holiday!) so my lovely husband popped out to the shops to be a hunter gatherer and returned home with a steak. It certainly hit the spot. He is a keeper ladies.

3. Speaking of the hubby, he really is building up his man-points this week. He decided we needed a night away soon and booked us a night in Bath for later this month. Yesterday he called me at work to say that he had also checked Gizmo in to her little cat-hotel too. What a man I have. He is just the best. It is so nice to have something to look forward to because we don't do stuff like this very often all. I can't wait!

4. A giant nutella delivery. It is safe to admit that this week has not been the best, but a slightly bonkers (and very lovely) colleague of mine managed to cheer it up very quickly yesterday. I usually spend the first hour and a half of every day out of my office to deal with a job at reception. When I returned yesterday morning there was a colourful gift bag on my desk. It contained a 1kg tub of nutella, a lovely card and a packet of plastic spoons (in case I needed to delve straight into the jar!). C, thank you, you are wonderfully mental xx

5. A trip to the cinema. Well, technically, this was last week as we went on Saturday evening, but I have to mention it because it was an amazing film. Last time we went to see a movie was a year ago as we only go when there is something we really want to see. When I watched the trailer for 'Miss You Already' I was desperate to see it. Guys, seriously, you have to see this film, it is gorgeous. Obviously the story line is ultimately sad, but it is funny and emotional and frustrating and beautiful all at once. We both enjoyed it. Top tip ladies, wear waterproof mascara. Let me know if you have seen it in the comments.

This weekend we don't have many plans, other than the exciting task of running to the post office to send back a Boden dress that made me look like I was smuggling tyres under it... *insert grumpy face here*. Whatever you guys are up to I hope it is a good one. Come and say hi over on Facebook or Instagram if you fancy!
