Autumn Bucket List

I have been thinking what I want do over the Autumn months – out with my monthly goals, and at first I was struggling to think of things that would sound interesting and cool, so I decided what the heck I am going to just come up with that I want to do no matter how silly they sound.

Try a pumpkin spice latte

So a PSL is a very American drink but it seems to be taking the UK by storm and getting bigger every year. There is a new Starbucks just opened near and they are advertising a vegan PSL so its seems like fate is stepping and making it possible to try one with all the trimmings this year.

Go to the Zoo Illuminations

I mentioned in my Blogtober Tag‘ post that our new family ‘tradition’ is to go the Five Sisters Zoo Illuminations – we have been a few times now as gift to M for his birthday treat but we couldn’t go last year due to covid so fingers crossed we can manage to get this year.

Potter about in the garden and get it ready for winter

We have never had a garden as we have lived in a flat for the last 13 years (5 people in a 2 bed flat = yeah was tough!) so I am looking to nurturing the garden and planning what I want to do with it over time. But first I need to get trees and bushes trimmed back and a whole host of of things I never would have thought of.

Go to Callander for woodland walks and a chippy

I really love heading to Callander and further north at this time of year to go for walks in the woods, there is also a really nice chippy there. I have great memories of going here on a Sunday drive with my Gran and Papa and the kids love going here as well, so this a must to do over the coming weeks.

Make birdfeeders for the garden

We are lucky that in having a garden we have some wildlife – we have at least three squirrels that visit daily, and a host of birds – mainly crows and pigeons! But just recently there has been a wee robin paying us a visit, so going to try and fatten him up for the winter.

    I want to make a bird feeder. Off to investigate. Zoo illumiations sounds wonderful. We have that for VIVID (now cancelled two years in a row due to lockdowns.) Enjoy. #Blogtober21

    This is a great list! I hope to go on fall hikes, bake cookies, and watch all the spooky movies.

    I am planning on trying a pumpkin spice latte this year too just to see what all of the hype is about. The Zoo illuminations sound fab and I love the sound of the walk in the woods x

    I also want to try the vegan PSL, I’m going to the city this week so will try and find a Starbucks (we don’t have one near me). How lovely to have three squirrels in the garden, I had lots while in Manchester but it’s quite rare to see them in the garden where I live now. The walk sounds great and i need to make more bird feeders too xxx

    I have already had a pumpkin spice latte! I have tickets for illuminations as well, but next month. I am really excited for those!
