At last (perhaps) autumn has arrived

I’ve been away in sunny India for about 6 months (yes, a bit longer than expected), and I completely missed the British summer.

Traded it in for the original Indian summer followed by monsoon which made for hot hot hot weather with torrential rain.

The weather here is conflicted. Some days it’s autumn with those longer sleeves, scarves, umbrellas and jackets, trees that are half red and half green. Everything that autumn in London should be.

Other days are 24-degrees-blue-skies-and-blazing-sunshine. Mind you, I don’t complain about those….

Here are some things that we think will improve your autumn experience.

Autumn is one of her favourite times of the year. Crunchy leaves, scarves, hot cocoa – whats not to love?
