Hello, September!

I know months are arbitrary divisors of the year invented by humans which the natural world has no concept of, but I could swear that the air felt different yesterday. Almost as though it knew it was September.

I've made no secret of the fact that I love this month. Autumn is right around the corner (or already here if you go by the meteorological calendar, but I'm a traditionalist so I wait until the Equinox to consider the season to have changed) and it's not long until Halloween and Bonfire Night!

Also, Bake Off is back which always makes me feel super autumnal (which is kinda weird cos it's filmed in spring, but whatever) and I'm already lining up my favourites. I love the goth lady who dresses her daughter as a bat. And the guy who managed to injure practically every one of his fingers in a single episode.

Strictly is back soon too. The launch show is on my birthday, which is a lovely present to me, so I'm very much looking forward to watching that with champagne and pizza. I wonder who Oti will get as her partner. I hope it's someone I like cos she's my favourite and I want to vote for her!
